What cloth diapers are you going to use?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
What cloth diapers are you going to to using? If you are cloth diapering that is

I used prefolds snappied with imse vimse wool cover with dd(FB with ds) and am not sure if I want to do that again or get some fancy diapers like bum genius one size org Aio's. My dh has banned the snappi in our house since he got poked with it(we all have now been cut by it). I only like using natural fibers becasue they don't stink like the synthetics. I so just want to use sposies but dh says NO! We use clover fitteds right now for dd and they are the best but they are so bulky.

I used all pockets with DS (started just before he turned 1). I have Happy Heiny, Fuzzi Bunz, Swaddlebees, Baby Kangas. My favorites are FB and SB. For this little one I've got fitteds, prefolds and pockets that I've bought second hand. My fitteds are pretty much 1 size which will be nice. DH will only do "easy" ones like pre-filled pockets with snaps. I'm excited to try the new stuff with our new little guy!

For the newborn stage, I'm going to be using mainly Kissaluvs Fitteds size 0 and also some prefolds in case I get behind on laundry. I've got a combination of covers...some Imse Vemse, some Bumkins(I think? pregnancy brain strikes again and I am too lazy to go see), and some WAHM covers as well.

Once the baby outgrows those, I've got tons of Small and Medium FBs, BG1.0 and KnickerNappies that I used with DS.

I'm just starting to cloth diaper, but we're going with bum genius. I can use the one-size for dd and ds so that's cool, my first couple from a friend are coming soon so I can try them out on dd and make sure I like them. I needed something SUPER easy or I knew I might flake out and run back to sposies. I'm excited about how cute they are though

I will be using mama-made fitteds and prefolds with wool and Thirsties covers. I'll probably switch to pockets at some point like I did with dd, I really liked the fit of FBs on her but I may try some others this time, like GADS or Haute Pockets. I'm super excited to cd this wee one when she comes!!

We've been using Fuzzi bunz for our DD. We're test driving some rump-a-rooz G2 one-size right now, and may buy more. I have a few happy heinys small and some bamboozles.

I'd like to get some Swaddlebeez newborn fitted and covers.

We are planning a diaper shower, as it's the only thing we *really* need. I'm hoping we don't have to buy too many diapers. (We will have two in diapers)

I am doing prefolds with covers for the newborn stage, then over to a two-in-one a local mamma designed and sewed for me She used organic bamboo velor that snaps into place, similar to a pocket, with no pocket

I am using a diaper service and so happy about that! They said that if I want I can throw in any pockets or what not I may use.

For newborn I am using the prefolds they also have Bummis and Thirsties covers I will be buying some Fleece covers for at night as I always used that with DS at night with no issues ever! I am not sure how long we will use the service for. Also my favorite with Ds was prefolds you can not get a better fit than a prefold IMO

I have some Kissaluvs size 0 that I am using, along with some WAHM pockets. I haven't bought anything else yet but I will be using newborn prefolds the rest of the time.

Once he starts wearing a size medium I have a ton of Fuzzi Bunz that I am using for DS now so I imagine I will be re-using most of those.

We have mostly Haute Pockets with a few BG thrown in... those will all be for DS. Meanwhile we have some FlyBaby and Swaddlebees for DD (they are not one size) and she can share DS's OS dipes.

I wish we had ALL haute pockets. Old style with snaps... I could do without the newer ones. I don't like the tabs on them.

We've got newborn and infant prefolds, flats (I love that they're so versatile for sizing and quick to wash/dry), a couple different PUL covers (Thirsties, Prorap, and BSWW), a couple knitted wool soakers, 3 small Fuzzi Bunz, and 3 SposoEasy AIOs. Also considering trying a few of the OS like BumGenius, Wahmies, Happy Heiny's, and Soft Bums AI2. I'm hoping the variety will give us a chance to find what will work best for baby once s/he moves out of the newborn sizes.

For the newborn we are going to use prefolds with covers. I make my own but I absolutely LOVE Blueberry brand diapers. LOL They aren't cheap either. I have a few Bum Genius diapers and we've used them for 9 months and the Aplix is shot. I have to convert them to snaps. I have been very disappointed with them. I do have some old Fuzzi Bunz that I love.

This one is a boy so once Brianna is potty trained (I'm in the process of making her some trainers) so I have to get rid of all my girly dipes and make some boy ones. I did get some wicked cute camo ooga booga fabric. All the possibilities!!!!

This is our first baby but we have 20 (so far) BumGenius 3.0's and have high hopes that they will work as their website and many others in the CD forum have stated they do. We are so happy to not be using sposies, my mother used prefolds and pins with me and my brother, she's excited about these new CD. And we are happy to be continuing the CD tradition! The only thing I'm slightly worried about is whether they will really be small enough for a newborn.

CPFs and some flats and misc covers.

I still can't decide. I am totally, totally confused and get SO overwhelmed when I start trying to figure it out .

Is there any one kind of diaper that:

--Will grow with / fit the baby from newborn throughout infancy?
--Are all-in-one style (I'm looking for something easy!)
--Won't cost over $500ish for the initial investment?

For what you want I'd invest in some one size pocket diapers. Although, they generally won't fit a newborn until they get a little bigger so still get a few newborn diapers. A newborn won't stay in a newborn dipe for that long. That's why I'm not investing my time and energy on pockets for a newborn to wear for a few weeks (we're doing covers with prefolds). There are a lot of OS pocket brands out there.

I decided on mostly prefolds and covers, with a few fitteds thrown in. That keeps the cost down - which is a huge factor for me! I bought the Infant size of prefolds (since ds was a 9 pound baby and this one seems to be well on her way, too!), but I was told that they are likely too large for the NB stage. Grrr... I'll probably order a few NB sizes soon. Also, a friend said she'd loan me some of her BG OS's, and those should be fun to try!

Thank you for your input. What one size pocket diapers would you suggest, if you don't mind me asking?

I was wondering if any newborn diapers would fit the baby continuously. I wonder if I should just do sposies for the newborn stage and then have my stock of cloth ready for when s/he grows into it. Well, I guess that would depend on how much the newborn diapers would end up costing me as well. Decisions, decisions.

I would hold off on that personally- I only have green stitched and blue stitched- no newborn size size no problems w/ either kid.

We used prefolds and covers with dd. They worked just fine and did the job. When she was older we got a couple of fuzibunz, and I absolutely hated them. They leaked like mad. With ds we started out with prefolds and then got a couple of used bumGenius, and we were ruined for life They are so easy to use, we never had leaks, and I liked I didn't have to switch diapers and covers for each size. And he was a little over eight pounds at birth, so the bumGenius would have worked fine for him from birth on up. We used them until he potty trained and are going to buy 24 new ones to use with the new baby. That will be about $450 for the person who was looking for a stash under $500.00
