Same here. They just never fit dd quite right. Happy Heinies were way too bulky, didn't like those either.
Swaddlebees pockets, on the other hand, were great. As were GADs and some of the WAHM pockets we tried. Funny that the most popular dipes didn't work for us at all.

Oh yeah, forgot kushies aio's. I didn't like them at all. Way too bulky in the crotch for ds (even though he fit great in a large FB at the time), and leaked like crazy.

Kushies did not work for us. I also tried both Wonderoos and Mommy's touch one-size diapers and had horrible fit problems.

Dappi fitted so far have been useless for us. Way too leaky. Now, Dappi covers along with Thirsties and Proraps are my favorites.

Some would say Gerber prefolds, but they work great for us with a snappi. Love snappis. I also use the organic ones with a birdseye flat doubled up inside that. Not bulky at all and does the job well during the day for us. I save the rest of my OS fitted stash for going out and nighttimes.

We had to cloth diaper on a minuscule budget, and this is what has worked for us.

I have yet to hear a recommendation for the Dappi fitteds. Everybody just dislikes them and says that they are very leaky.

I have used the dappi velcro covers when DS was little and they were ok. Definetely not worth more than they cost since they wick out moisture from behind the velcro.

This probably really hurts my crunch-points on this board, but I hated prefolds. My kiddos hate sitting on the changing table--lots of crying and squirming are always involved. Trying to snappi a prefold was just not happening. Plus the bm poo always ran out the legs.

Anything with velcro--what a mess.

Any AIO. They just don't get clean enough for me.

I love me some Fuzzi Bunz though!!! They're quick, fast, easy to clean, don't leak unless I am severely negligent in diaper changing, and just don't seem to wear out, ever!

Another factor to consider is the stage baby is at. I couldn't stand prefolds with EBF poop. I tried for many months to make sure there were no gaps for poop to escape. Even the jellyroll wasn't enough. I bought a few fitteds and loved them. Then we started (baby led) solids and fitteds are just too much trouble. Prefolds have finally won me over after 8 1/2 months.

I am right there with you!! I am not a fan of PFs whatsoever... but give me a pocket with some snaps any day

Great list!! Thank you everyone!!

I don't care for the poo on legs as long as the cover keeps the mess in but other than that I totally agree that PFs don't keep bf-poop in.

We started off with prefolds, snappis, and PUL covers (pro-rap). I would use either a snappi or a cover, but not both. I liked snappis for a while, then gradually grew to hate them as they snagged my clothes and bit my fingers, once drawing blood. I made a diaper belt and use that instead, now -- safer and less fuss for cover-less times.

On the prefolds, I bought a variety but grew to hate the thicker ones (4x8x4) because they take so long to dry. We're doing EC, and I always tried to change after every pee, so those extra layers were pointless. Thinner prefolds were fine, though, and I also think that flats are great.

Made my own pocket diapers and so I can see how they're tricky to get right, and it makes sense to me that so many people hate the big-name pocket diapers.

you guys have me worried about all my expensive BGs!!!! i LOVE those diapers. i don't want them to fall apart they hold everything in and i've never had a leak!

i actually had no trouble with Kushies (others are mentioning them.) as long as they're the right size, they work very nicely. however, they are falling apart!!! i got all mine used and they lasted until DS2's 4th month though (and some are hanging in there) so not bad.

i'm not a fan of prefolds or fitteds. i'm too lazy. however, we really like Motherease OS and Sandy's. they work really well...when i'm not lazy. i can't see them working as OS with small, or even average size, babies. it'd take a small baby forever to get into them!

i also find HH prints to be very bulky and stiff. they wick a little as well. i like the normal HH pockets though. they work nicely.

Funny you wrote that about the BG because that is what I was leaning towards... those and some prefolds!!

I really didn't like my Motherease Sandys, not very absorbent and very bulky.

FWIW, I love my Wonderoos OS pocket, it's what I use now and have used them for awhile. Never any leaks and fit great, very trim also. (My babe is really chunky!)

re

I dont like AIO's. They took forever to rinse and dry. And they just didnt fit my ds well........altho', he does have a bubble butt lol.

Bum genius one size 3.0

They always leaked and I bought them brand new. After too many issues, I have them to a friend who loves them for free.

I think they just didn't fit my DD well.

I loved my BGs at first, but that love is waning. I bought a dozen 2.0s on clearance when they came out with the 3.0s when DS was 10 months old. I then added 4 of the 3.0s. They work great, are easy to use, wash and stuff easily, and I never get leaks. I use the 3.0s at night with both inserts. I am bothered by how fast the velcro has worn out. I contacted the company, and they said the diapers are made to get ONE child from birth to potty learning. I don't even know if they will get my one child half that way, never mind the little one on the way. I like the concept, but they are two expensive for the time of use you get from them. New baby will get prefolds and Proraps.
