She trained herself at 20 months and was out of diapers 100% by 21 months. She completely amazed me. I use One Size pockets, but I don't buy the big name brands. I prefer to get them from small Facebook shops. The quality is just the same for a fraction of the price.

How awesome that your 2 year old potty trained so quickly!  That's a great issue to be dealing with! ;)  What are your favorite brand of cloth diapers?

I agree- diapers are SPENDY!  Are you planning to use cloth or disposable?  We always did disposable and I would pick up a package every time I went grocery shopping.  It was really nice to have a good stockpile on hand before baby arrived (but I was always so shocked at how quickly we went through that stockpile too!).

I have not yet picked up anything for baby but I sure have wanted to!  I'm just not quite sure what I need yet!  I'd love to hear any budget tips you all have though!
