Thinking about using cd’s and trying to figure out where to start. I want to go with what is easiest and less leaks. So would that be All-In-One Diapers or Pocket Diapers. Is there a brand that is better than another? My ds is 6 ½ months old. He is bf and is eating a very little amount of solids. He is very tall and weighs 24lbs. Also I have a high efficiency washer will this cause problems with properly washing them?<br>
THANKS

I don't think that there IS any one answer, everyone is going to have an opinion.<br><br>
That being said, I really like pockets. They go on as easily as an all-in-one, and with an extra step in the washing process, they dry faster and can be double-stuffed for nighttime use.<br><br>
Then there's the velcro vs. snaps issue- I thought I'd like the velcro (Aplix) but I found that snaps are the best for me- makes it super-easy to get the diaper on evenly.<br><br>
I haven't tried so many kinds, but Fuzzi Bunz are my friends. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> You can adjust the thighs and waist separately, which works well for my chunky baby. You might want to try a few used ones first though, because no one diaper works the same for all kids.<br><br>
If you do go with pockets, remember to get a few extra inserts for nighttime doublers, and either a diaper sprayer or liners for non-water-soluble diapers.<br><br>
I don't have an HE washer, but take a look at this adorable page- I think she does: <a href="http://snipurl.com/1asfh" target="_blank">http://snipurl.com/1asfh</a><br><br>
Good luck, hope that was some help!

I like pocket diapers. Your baby is in the size range of in between med and large right now though. When my kids were that size, too big for medium, too small for larges, I found one size diapers worked well. Mommy's Touch or BumGenius. I don't have any experience with HE washers, but I think pockets would be easier to clean that AIOs. AIOs can be hard to clean in a regualr washer sometimes because of the thickness and the waterproof on one side. Except the Mommy's Touch AIOs, the soakers for those are totally free floating, so they can get rinsed on all sides.
