If you really want ease of use, I'd go all Happy Heiny's. Your child sounds just like Eliza - too big in the thighs for Fuzzibuns and you'll constantly be upsizing, whereas with Happy Heiny's and the aplix closure, the thigh fit is not a problem and the size range is huge. Medium fits 14-22 lb and I just looked up my boys health records adn they were not that weight until about 15 months, and Eliza is about 2.5 lb smaller at 4 months than they were, so Im anticipating about 18 months in one size.
I'd skip the prefolds and just go joeybunz, keep it all nice and simple and you cant go wrong. I keep disposables in the house too and am virtually never tempted to use them, they're just for the odd occasion that Im going away or am going to be out somewhere difficult all day, which virtually never happens anymore.
Baby washcloths do fine as wipes, I've found no need to buy anything fancy and I have a basic nappy bucket. A couple of bummis totes and a decent nappy bag and you're set to go.
I go cold all over when I think what I've spent getting set up, I must admit, but when you look at it logically, I probably dont have to spend anything else for almost two years.
