Love bum genius 4.0! They fit well and they have reusable inserts which is another money saver!

The other things I absolutely love is the dekor diaper pail! No stink passes threw! We use reusable pail liners instead of the plastic refil bags.

I am a huge fan of the http:/www.rockabums.com brand. Their diaper has a ton of options (velcro and snaps) and various fits that include newborn.  Out of all of the diapers I've tried, this one fits the best and has the coolest designs by far.

I cannot sing the praises of Bummis Super Brite wraps enough! They hold up to lots of washing, the Velcro never goes bad, and the gussets on the legs keep leaks form happening even on my skinny girl. We use them with basic prefolds and it is a great system for us.

Our family loves fitted Kissaluvs!  So soft and really absorbing-we use them as night time diapers with a wool cover and it has been a total game changer!

My favorite diaper bag was not on the list so i'm adding it here! It is the Vera Bradley convertible baby bag. I am an unconventional woman... I detest purses and instead fit all of my things in a pocket wallet. If I ever HAVE to have a purse I use a cross-body or backpack style only. Shoulder straps hurt my shoulders or one strap constantly falls down... not for me. And holding a bag... yeah right us moms need our hands!!! This new bag came out and can be worn as cross body, backpack, shoulder or hand bag. Very versatile and SO CUTE!! I got the tutti frutti. The interior of the bag is waterproof and the exterior is cloth so if it gets dirty all you need to do is use a little spray and wash and pop in the washing machine. It includes a diaper changing pad and has pockets on the inside. If you are an overstuffer mom - then you can always keep the not so important things (blankets, changes of clothes, etc) in an additional bag in the trunk of your vehicle. I would also continue to use this as a purse in the future. Only con is the price... $109 BUT the durability of Vera Bradley products is unreal!!! I have pocket wallets that have been washed 20+ times and over 7 years old still in mint condition. Here is the link :) http://www.verabradley.com/product/Category/Mom-and-Baby/Convertible-Baby-Bag/1001980/defaultColorVariantId/180913/c/638/sc/643/p/1001980.uts?fromSearch=1

As far as diaper creams I prefer either coconut oil (can be purchased at any health food store) but ask doctor first as many people are allergic to coconut!! I am also a HUGE advocate for the NIVEA baby line. It is VERY VERY hard to find but Nivea has been used by my family for generations. For diaper cream I like either the Smoothy Cream or Soft Cream. No reactions and keeps baby protected and soft. Fabulous!

Last 2 products that were not found in the options I promise!!

1) Munchkin waterproof liners (comes in packs of 3) - I love these because they are waterproof so very easy to wipe clean because messes WILL get on changing pad. I'll throw them in the wash once a week and have a backup to use in the meantime. I tried using cotton covers and YUCK.... I gave up on those within the first 2 weeks.

2) Charlie Banana hanging diaper bag - I prefer not to hang the bag instead I use it as a liner in my arm & hammer diaper pail and it's great...it's washable and goes right in the wash with the diapers. No cons.

cbwilke, can you send me a link to the diaper at the website it can be purchased? I can create the product in our Reviews system but I want to make sure I place the correct one and correct picture. :)

I tried to submit a review and it says I am not authorized. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be appreciated. I have never used Charlie B's but would love to try them.

short mom, all of your reviews are in the Reviews section. I think everything is fine. I don't see any outstanding reviews being held in our system.
