I did g-diapers the first time around and didn't like them. I liked the IDEA of them but just ended up using them as covers with a prefold on laundry day when I was doing bum genius pockets. With my foster baby I discovered thisties covers with their duo inserts. I recommend those if you are looking to try cloth since they are so easy, less bulky than prefolds and maybe less intimidating. With that said, I am LOVING the prefolds with the covers, especially the flip covers. Kalista, you should try those too in addition to the thirsties.
By the way, if anyone is interested, I have 3 boy colors thirsties duo size 2 aplix covers that I only used for 4 months with my foster baby. Anyone interested? I can make you a deal.
Also, I am so scared of trying out my wool covers. I have the two I knitted and one Disana (which is too big since I planned to use it later). I still need to lanolize but how will they hold in the wetness?!
