I LOVE cloth diapers!! One of the BEST parts of having a baby ;) I've used cloth diapers since dd2. With dd2 I purchased diapers (every style out there.. I went through phases of likeing AIOs, pockets, AI2s, prefolds, flats, fitteds, pocket fitteds, and then wool, fleece or PUL covers). Before dd3 was born I decided I'd learn to sew because I loved cloth diapers so much and wanted more! So... I did! And I loved sewing so much (and sewing diapers) that I did sell cloth diapers online for a while.. but then it just wasn't fun to sew them anymore, so I decided not to. I like sewing for *fun* and there wasn't enough profit involved to really make that much of a difference.
For tiny newborns I like fitteds for sure (Kissaluvs 0s .. or for sewing, there is a free newborn pattern from Darling Diapers that is quite similar and by far my favorite).. for covers it depends on my ambition. In theory I like wool, but for ease of use I like PUL covers. I've made some of each and I'll probably make some more before this baby is born. When out of the newborn size and into smalls, I still like fitteds and covers because small babies have explosive poos from being exclusively breastfed... but I also like prefolds (newspaper fold I believe.. or maybe it's the angel fold?). And then for mediums (which my kids never move out of) I usually end up with PUL pockets stuffed with flats with some premium prefolds thrown into the mix.
I own *lots* of cloth diaper patterns and love trying them out ;)
