A pocket diaper is sort of like an AIO without any absorbency. So yes, you have to stuff it or else you won't have anything to absorb.<br><br>
A prefold diaper is a rectangular, multi-layered piece of cloth that's thicker in the middle. Yes, you need a cover if you want it to be waterproof, though you can pin and leave it coverless for breathability.<br><br>
My favorite brands are Mother-ease, Bummis, and Blue Penguin.<br><br><a href="http://www.geocities.com/[email protected]/types.html" target="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/[email protected]/types.html</a>

Alright, I think I got it straight now, thanks, those sites really helped<br><br>
Has anyone ever made their own diapers or bought from WAHMs who make them?

I've just started making my own fitteds. It's really not that hard if you have some basic sewing skills. I think I calculated that my materials cost about $4.00 per diaper, so it's well worth it to me even though getting started has been time-consuming. There's lots of really helpful info on the Diaper Making board above.

I prefer pockets because you can put in as much or as little bulk as you need/want. For nap times you can add it and for day time, you can keep it minimal. There are one size diapers too that are really nice. One size POCKET diapers rock.<br>
If you choose to make them, I've heard that <a href="http://www.wahmsupply.com" target="_blank">www.wahmsupply.com</a> is the place to go for the material.

require cover<br><br>
Prefold<br>
Fitteds<br>
Contour<br><br>
AIO's no cover<br><br>
pockets generally do not require a cover but could depending on how it is made<br><br>
has a slot to slide stuffings inside diaper<br><br>
You can add additional layers into a fitted diaper as well it is just on the exterior of the liner instead of inside the pocket -- not a lot of difference in building a diaper soaker layer.
