I'm a cloth user, too. I used to HATE pads, sposie or cloth. Loved my Diva Cup. But I've been able to use my Diva less and less comfortably after each baby, so I've been using cloth pads more frequently.
I haven't ever bought "brand name" ones, just a variety of ones off of Etsy and Hyena Cart. Aside from pantiliners, I'm pretty limited to only pads with a layer of PUL or something similar, as I bleed a lot. Found some awesome ones for overnight (long enough and shaped right in all the right places) but I'm a heavy bleeder too and so I still have one or two nights where I just use a toddler prefold. It's major bulk, but at least I can sleep through the night without waking a lot and worrying about bleeding onto my sheets!!!!
I've never used cloth pads PP before but I probably will this time, likely the prefolds at night and sometimes at home. Will still use my giant peach pads and mesh undies (YES!! I LOVE THE COMBO!! I am weird, I know!!) that first day or two, though, because I like to have them soaked in witch hazel and frozen, and I just couldn't figure out how to accomplish that with cloth in any way that appealed to me. But I tend to only bleed heavily for a couple days max and then it's only light for about a week or so, then just spotting off and on for another week maybe.
