Methods for washing new and used cloth diapers before use?

Stephanie - posted on 12/21/2013 ( no moms have responded yet )




I am new to cloth diapering. Actually very new, since I technically haven't started "the diapering" part yet. I bought 14 bumgenius diapers (some pocket and some AIO) and I also received a box of used flip diapers/g-hybrids/inserts/wipes from freecycle. I am doing research online but was hoping for some advice from experienced moms. I'm not clear on how many times you have to wash new diapers before using on baby and I would love stripping suggestions for the used stuff. Any cloth diapering advice would be most welcome and appreciated!
Here are a few particulars in case that helps:
-We have Nellie's Laundry Soda
-We have a Dekor Plus Pail with 2 washable liners
-I bought a medium-sized wet bag for on-the-go
-Baby is 4 months old and her diet is 100% breastmilk (I exclusively pump, but that's a tragic story for another day :P)
Would love to hear about routines, travel suggestions, overnight diapering methods, everything!
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!
