So.....what is Dad's fave cloth diaper??

Anyone have a dh who uses prefolds successfully? (I'm thinking of making half my newborn stash prefolds and covers....just wondering if there is hope for the dads in that area LOL)

My dh loves any kind of AIO, especially my bubblebubs....hates anything with more than one step LOL But I'm convinced I can at least teach him to tolerate PFs and covers when the time comes LOL

Yes my dh will use prefolds but not with the snappi, has to be in a cover with velcro. I made it really simple and showed him how to fold it, how to put it in the cover, and now he does. He likes the fitteds better but will use the prefolds if the others are dirty.

DH had no problem with prefolds and a wrap, but wouldn't have anything to do with Snappis or pins.

DH was fine with prefolds and a snappi until he saw a fuzzibunz and now that is all he will do.

It took my dh a month before he would give a pf and snappi a try on my toddler. They eventually were the first thing he would grab

My DH can do a prefold with a snappi if he is forced to but he usually grabs the Bum-ware

My hubby would only do kissaluvs and Proraps at first when that was all we had(those and prefolds). Well okay, he would do a kissaluvs and skip the cover and let her pee through it onto mommy! :LOL Now he's discovered the joys of fuzzi bunz and refuses to do anything else. I couldn't pay him enough to use prefolds.

I've got a PF lovin' husband. He just folds them in the wrap and he's done. He gets confused by every other kind of diaper/wrap/soaker etc we own. He actually gets annoyed if there are no prefolds on the shelf. :LOL

My DH was a little bummed when I replaced all "his" prefolds with fitteds and prefitteds. He will pin a prefold without blinking good hubby!

His favorite though? snap-ez PUL pockets because I prestuff

My DH did learn how to use CPFs and snappis when my toddler was a baby. His favorite diapers are Very Baby AIOs, then Fuzzi Bunz (prestuffed), then HHs (prestuffed).

My dh started with prefolds and covers when ds was a newborn, and then front (aplix) closing AIOs, and now he'll use anything. His fave is FCB AIOs. Of course everything is assembled for him in their respective baskets or drawers, so there is no assembly required. He doesn't really use our wool a lot, but that's because he lives in mortal fear that he'll hurt it in some way. :LOL

we don't have a very big stash for my older DD who only wears dipes at night, and DP always puts her diaper on. So he's the expert for that one. He tells me that he doesn't mind the snappi/PF (and hemp doubler)mix, except that he can never find the damn snappi:LOL I also have a Crystal's Cloth nighttime dipe and it's like the deluxe:LOL But we only have one, so it's always the first to get in the diaper pail.... I told him if he doesn't like looking for a snappi, he should give me more money to buy more diapers like the CC

We have prefolds and wool and AIO's. The other day dh was complaining that there weren't any diapers left. There were 5 prefolds on the shelf. All the AIO's were in the wash. Silly dh. He can do all the diapers, but prefers the easiness of the AIO's.

I have a hyena hubby too, his fave cover is a BBH! We only use prefolds (no snappis here either) and he does just fine.

Dh's favorites are aio's or pockets, but he will do fitteds with covers but sometimes forgets the covers because he can never remember which prints are aios and which are fitteds (I gave up trying to explain) He will remove a prefold if I have it on her, but will not put one on.

My DH is ALL about FB's, too. He wouldn't care if I sold the whole stash and used those. But his favorite fitted is FCB, so I guess he has a hyena streak in him. :LOL

DP is better at using PFs than I am and he also likes them better than I do. He has never tried pins or snappis because I have never bought either. (Well, I bought one snappi, but I never even took it out of the package.) We always just used velcro wraps and they worked fine. He didn't like it when I switched to fitteds because he said he felt like once he fastened it he should be done. So he would forget to put on a cover. So I bought VB AIOs for him and he likes those. Truth be told, though, he'd be just as happy using PFs and wraps.

He definitely prefers velcro. He doesn't like snaps.

My dh loves our FCB. He actually was gushing with me about them today. And I quote, "Their prints are so cute and they're so well made." :LOL He definitely knows how to snappi a pf since that is half of our stash. I hate snappis but save them for him. I think they will learn whatever they need to. I am sure dh could learn to pin but it frightens me a little.
