Do most people prefer to use a mixture of AIO's and prefolds? Also, if you use AIO's, do you use all one brand or a variety? I am very interested in cloth diapers (simply from reading about the benefits) but have never actually seen them used. I think I would prefer AIO's, but I don't want to spend a ton of money getting all one kind to find out I don't like them....

People like different things. I have prefolds, pockets, & fitteds. Right now, I'm loving the ease of pockets (Fuzzi Bunz), so i'm using them most of the time. When warmer weather comes, it will be coverless prefolds & fitteds.<br><br>
You have to try different kinds to find out what works for your baby & for you. It's hard to say that one kind will work for you if you don't try them. Your best bet would be to get different kinds to try, like used ones off of the Trading Post (You need more posts & time here to access it; 50 posts/60 days).

I like prefolds for newborns but when the baby gets older I think pockets are the best because they make diaper changes so fast when the baby is trying to get away from you. Pockets are better than AIOs for us because they dry faster. I don't have one favorite brand, I don't really care what brand it is.

i agree with pp .. prefolds are good for when they are younger and we are feeling the pocket love for ds right now --he is 11 months old <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Different people use different things. I use mostly prefolds with a few AIOs, but I tried a number of different brands before settling on my one favorite and narrowing down the stash to just that. However, most reputable brands work on most babies, so don't tear your hair out.

My son is almost 8 months old now and all that I have ever used is prefolds and I guess I always will. But I do think that AIOs and pockets . . . . . oh and the one size diapers seem like they would be nice to have.
