I use prefolds and flats exclusively with my crawling 7.5-month-old with no trouble. We use mostly wool during the day, and always use wool at night (the other daytime covers we use are the g-diaper covers . . . my ds is sensitive to PUL, but does fine with nylon). I have no interest in using fitted diapers. They're harder to clean, take longer to dry, are more expensive, and can't possibly fit every baby equally well the way flats/prefolds do. I prefer to spend the $$ on nice wool covers since that's the part I see anyway.
Fleece covers are fine enough, but I prefer wool. Fleece isn't as leakproof as wool.
Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
