Do your favorite diapers get used and used and used or do you just spare them so that they will stay pretty for longer?
I am a user and abuser myself. :LOL My favorites will wear out first I'm sure.

We use everything, often we are on the very last diaper while waiting for the load to dry.

O i use them

I am that way in all areas of life though. Lovely things are to be enjoyed. I wear my favorite shoes and outfits into the ground... lovely diapers and covers...we dont really stress out here when favorite things break or wear out. That is how life is !

O yes, I use them all. We mainly use PFs, but I do use the few fitteds in and among them. We're doing laundry every day and half, which is about how long our stash lasts, giving us enough to get through until the wash is done & dried.

I do, but I tend to use them more when I'm out and about and people will see them! At home I stick to the slightly more boring ones in an effort to keep my favorites available at a moment's notice for going out!

definitely!

I did recently get a fancy wool cover that I thought twice about putting on ds a lot because it's so cool. Then I started thinking "if I'm not going to use it, why have it?" and I couldn't bear the thought of selling it. So we use it. And I don't put pants on over it, unless we are going somewhere. Makes me to look at it.

Sometimes first and sometimes we save them until the end of the pile. But I think all the diapers get used over a few day period of time. Right now we love all the dipes in the pile. Makes it a bit easier.

I bought a new cover from FMBG once and it was so pretty I admired it but didn't use it for 2 months. During that time we had leaks every time ds napped and every night. Well, one night all my other covers were dirty so I had no choice but to use my new beautiful FMBG cover. Wonder of wonders, we didn't have any leaks with that cover. I was so mad at myself for not using it sooner! Now we use it all the time - it's my favorite cover. Needless to say, now when I get new diapers, we use them regardless of how beautiful they are.

When ds was in smalls, we only had one really nice dipe other than our prefolds and kissaluvs and I was always saving it for when we went out. I think it only got used a couple times a week. So, now I make sure to have lots of dipes I love and to use whatever my very favorite is of those available.

We are now to the point where all of our diapers in rotation are our favorites. So they all get used

Yes, but...

I don't use wool covers as an outer layer at mealtimes because DS is such a messy eater.

I don't use favorite dipes at mealtimes if DS is going to be eating something that stains - I have a beloved lennon print dipe with blueberry stains!

I often don't use my favorite wool covers or soakers around the house because I don't want them to get caked in dog hair or otherwise trashed. But I can't bring myself to sell many of them either, sigh!

I don't use wool longies outside right now because DS crawls everywhere including concrete, which I'm sure would trash wool (it even does a number on his jeans, LOL).

I don't restrict DS's activities to protect the dipes, but I do refrain from putting a favorite diaper or cover on if I think it might get trashed. I'm especially careful if I'm not sure I like a dipe or cover yet and I'm trying to protect its resale value in case I don't like it after all.

Almost the diapers in Anwyn's stash are our three favorite brands, so basically, yes, we use our favorites. I have some favorite soakers that get used over and over and over...
