I cloth diapered with DS and I definitely plan on doing it again. We used a diaper service for the first 4 months with DS. It was expensive but totally worth it because he went through 20+ diapers a day! I did use my own covers though, Vimse Vimse Night are the B.E.S.T!
I hope to set up the service again for those first few months. Since I gave my small covers away, I already ordered a few for the new baby. This time I tried a couple Bumkins along with the Imse Vimse.
I'm pretty old school about diapering - I primarily used flats and a few prefolds, especially when DS was primarily breast fed. I rarely
had leaks with a simple flat/prefold and a good cover. I loved the Bumkin covers and Imse Vimse night covers on DS when he was an older baby and toddler too. I hated Thirsties (which I know others rave about), because they all fell apart and just seemed cheap to me. While my bumkins and imse vimse covers are still going strong!
I did have a small stash of fuzi bunz pocket diapers that I absolutely loved too. I used those diaps when DS got a littler older and started full-time daycare (around 18 months) - he was also eating a fair amount of solids by that point. A friend talked me into a few Bumkins AIOs - they were nice, but I liked FB pockets better. I also purchased PUL fabric online and sewed some of my own pockets - to be honest, I think these were my favorite diapers
, even though they didn't look all that pretty
I splurged on some velor wipes for DS - these worked awesome and are still in great shape, I also had an assortment of baby washcloths. I made my own wipe solution. I purchased only Charlies Soap (http://www.charliesoap.com/
) for diaper washing (and still use it on our clothes) and line dry everything.
