Hi! I have a two month old and we just switched over to cloth. I'm liking it WAY better than sposies. I don't mind doing laundry at all (who'd have imagined?). Anyway, I like everything--cpfs, fitteds, AIO, pockets, but my DH is only comfortable with the pocket dipes and AIOs. I don't know how much you're willing to spend, but it may be a good idea to get a few of those for your DH.
I ordered (and just received) three Little Lamb Quick Dry AIOs (www.cutest-cloth-diapers.com
) and they're fantastic. So soft, and the cutest prints.
They do run small, though. I also have a honeyboy AIO that's very cute, and just got a prowrap AIO but I haven't tried it.
The pocket dipes are great, too. My DH (who really prefers the velcro closings to snaps, sigh
: ) likes the happy heinys best. (www.happyheinys.com
) As the name implies, they have a pocket that you can stuff with something and that catches the pee. The actual dipe is lined with fleece and it's really soft. You can stuff it with whatever you want--a cpf (bulky, but it works), a Joey Bunz, whatever. They work wonderfully for us. The other pocket dipe we use is fuzzibunz (www.fuzzibunz.com
) which is along the same lines as the HH, but with snaps. Fuzzibunz are great for nighttime (for us, anyway). I stuff the pocket with a cpf and a JB and ds is nice and dry at his next change.
|What are fitted versus contoured?
Fitted dipes have snaps or aplix and work like a sposie (except you need a cover). You can put a doubler in them for added absorbancy. Contoured dipes are shaped sort of like an hourglass, but don't have any snaps or anything. They need covers, too.
Oh, as for covers, we have bummis super whisper wraps (my favorite), bumkins (OK but still a little big on DS), motherease rikki wraps (also good) and green earth (IMO, a little flimsy, but they work OK).
You may want to look into a wool cover for nighttime if your daughter is a heavy wetter. I haven't tried any wool yet so I can't be of any help with this one, but I'm sure someone here can.
