Beautiful, MC!! I'll admit that I am a tiny bit tempted by the fitteds made from PFs. The GMD ones look nice. But, as good as the advice is to just try a few styles, I think I'm more of a pick a tried and true method and just sticking with it. For me, that's going to be PFs (unless convinced othewise) a few PUL and some wool.
I stuffed the Bumgenius pockets tonight and the front loaded nature of the work of pocket diapers isn't for me. I can already tell. I HATE laundry and don't remember minding pinning or snappying and then covering for changing. Maybe that's the difference in preference...whether you are the type to get the work out of the way upfront or not?
Anyway, I really like to hear all of the different preferences and ideas!
I do have wool question! You know the recycled wool covers? How does one know that the person has chosen nice soft wool? Is the diapering world so honest that a consumer can just assume it's all super nice? Or do you just take your chances?
Does anyone have a favorite among the "big" wool pull-up psoaker companies? Disana($25/soaker), Ruskovilla($37/longies), Aristocrats($28/soaker), Kissaluvs($36/soaker), Lana($46/soaker)? Right now I have 1 Small Aristocrats, a large looking Lana (bought used/felted/no tag) and a cute knitted soaker (bought second hand). On my registry I have a NB Disana soaker and a pair of Ruskovilla longies. Thoughts? What about interlock? Those Sbish pants look SO nice -- but I have a hard time believing they're worth the $$. What about the snap/velcro wool covers?
Oh, (I guess I have a bunch of questions about wool...) what's the DEAL with the Hyena Cart? It seems super UN-user friendly.
One more...do those knitted soakers, shorties and longies really work as a diaper cover? That is the last thing I'm struggling with believing when it comes to the world of wool.
