But my true love will probably always be with prefolds and I even love pinning flats with a patient infant.
What we use most often right now is pockets (I have 3 dozen or so), but I've thought about selling them all for Dream-Eze or Bum Genius organic AIO's.
So I suppose, fitteds are my least favorite, though I have 20+ that I have used over the years, my love varies... I get bored quickly
and yes, snaps over velcro for all diapers/covers!
I agree about the snaps. We only have three diapers that snap right now and I love using those so much more than the velcro.

I really dislike all in ones due to long dry times (we line dry only) and also issues getting them clean; I feel it's harder than with flats/prefolds. That being said, I never really tried to make aios work for me, I was already infatuated with my flats!

Fitteds would be nice if i had the $$ for a whole pile of kissaluvs
That said, mostly I stick to prefolds and AIOs. cool poll idea!

I'm not a big fan of pocket diapers ever; I have a few, but I would much rather have natural fibers, and I'd much rather have the extra containment of a separate cover and diaper.
I like AIOs in the 6 to 12 month stage, where they roll over faster than you can get a diaper on, but they don't hold enough pee in general for our toddlers, and don't hold infants' pre-solids poo at all, for us. I have a few, but rarely use them.
I love prefolds for adjustablity and easy care and versatility, but some days I go crazy trying to find a snappi even though I own like 20 million of them, and I find wrap-style covers unreliable, and an unfastened prefold sags. I use them because I have them, but if a fitted is clean I'll grab that first.
I love flats for extra absorbency inside another diaper, but alone, I need like four of them to equal the absorbency of a good fitted on a toddler, and that makes them less cost-effective.
So I think when all is said and done, I'm a fitted-and-wool kind of gal.
With our last baby we bought some of the expensive, trendy type diapers and with this one I realized that the more basic ones worked just as well for us and saved us a ton of money. Plus, not so much stress.
For trips, we use pockets (BG onesize) because they are 1 piece, so slightly quicker/easier than prefold + cover (for example when changing dd in the car) and also pockets for nighttime (drybees) because it's dry next to her skin.
I don't really like fitteds, have only tried one kind (Tots Bots bamboozles), but I found them so bulky. (And they are supposed to be pretty trim because they're bamboo).
Haven't tried AIO's yet, I guess they would be good for outings but I like that with the pockets, I can choose what I stuff them with, depending on how long they would have to last.
Haven't tried flats yet either, I'm slightly intimidated by all the folding, I guess!

but tomorrow it may be something else. The only kind I've found that I don't like are aio's but I do like ai2's

I do the lazy trifold into the cover so I can have them all laid out ready to go when I'm feeling ambitious! They have leaked out of the cover less than 5 times in 4 months. Can't beat that!
I do snappi them on at night when I put 2 dipes on him so he doesn't need a change in the middle of the night.
Plus we've never had a rash.
