Here is what I love in cloth:
Apple Cheeks diapers. OMG I just discovered them, got them at babyhalfoff.com where I got like all my new diapers for cheap cheap cheap. They are pockets and are so soft and trim. I stuff them with a tri-folded prefold and voila, diaper love.
I also got some Dream -Eze All in One’s from BHO and they look good, are super great for absorbency, have an awesome snap system but are super duper bulky and can’t be adjusted for less bulk. I love them for home use but not so much for on the road/fitting in clothes/car seat use.
I love my Thirsties pocket optional diapers, we use these all the time, only downside is the velcro which catches on everything and annoys me.
In the all in one department, I would much rather buy sized diapers then one size, I have only 4 one size and I find them sloppy looking.
I overall preffer all in one’s to fitteds and even prefolds to fitteds. I like all in one’s for convenience and fit.
I like prefolds for ease of travel, I can so easily throw 6 prefolds and 2 covers in the diaper bag and get through a whole day out.
I like fitteds ONLY for night time use and using around the house cover free for breath-ability factor. Of the too many fitteds I have now, I love my 3 Goodmama’s hands down, best of all, although they are the bulkiest, they can stay dry, cover free, for like 3 hours. My other fitted’s are soaked after 2 hours easy. I like my Thirsties Fab Fitted for softness factor, but the absorbency is crap compared to my GM’s. I think I would be open to selling off/passing down my entire fitted stash and just keep 4-6 Goodmama’s around.
Now that I am knee deep in cloth diapering, I think my stash will look like this with nextbebe-
6 infant prefolds (used as doublers in pockets later)
4 waterproof covers
2 wool covers
4-6 Goodmama’s fitteds
10-12 Sized All in one’s (Sm is still fitting Evangeline at 5 months, except Dream Eze were she is MM)
We have been doing diaper laundry 2x a week here, no issues with that.
How bout you? What do you like/dislike, what do you think your best stash would look like.
