Im wondering if there are certain brands or styles that work better for boys vs girls? Anyone have experience using cloth on both?

Hmm, the only thing I can think of right off the bat is that the jelly roll diaper fold for prefolds works best for boys. Other than that, I think the main thing is chubby or skinny legs instead of boys vs girls in my experiences. Oh, and for pockets with inserts, you put the folded part of the insert in front for boys whereas for girls, you put it in back.

I also have some all in ones that have flaps/tongues that you flip back and forth for a boy or a girl.

I'm new to it but I've read that it seems to be more about what folds/positioning are needed for boy/girl. I think prefolds seem to be better for boys(still great for girls) than other dipes just because they absorb quicker and you have more control with folding. I'd ask in the CD forum...they are a slowmoving board but have great knowledge!

CD both sexes (3 kids total so far) and I've learned no 2 babies are the same. What worked perfectly for one child did not for the other. My older DD needed petite everything since she was so thin but long. Most of the diapers that I used on her didn't fit DS however even FB didn't work with him. (Leaked bad). I also found that he was able to figure out velcro at 6m and would crawl out of his diapers.
Next DD, was a piece of cake however none of his diapers fit her since she had thunder thighs but thin waist.

Moron, don't buy too much before you see how you like them on this baby. I make mine now and I still only make a few of each pattern before the baby comes. I stay with prefolds and covers since they usually don't have issues between body types.

And yes, boys do pee more upfront but my heavy wetters have been my girls since they learned early on to hold their pee longer and then would dump at once. I found I needed 2 inserts with them by 6m whereas my DS went to over 1 year with just 1 (except bedtime)

I'm not sure about the difference since we are still new to this and only trying them out on Elijah at night since he goes to the potty during the day. I do know that out of 5 different brands of pockets I have to put in 2 insterts at night to keep him from leaking but he does still drink a few cups of milk at night so he pees a ton.

Thanks for your input! There is so much to figure out and it drives me crazy not to be able to plan everything out in detail and get everything ready to go! I have to wait still on the fb group as my facebook is still off limits as far as anything baby/pregnancy. By december, I want to join!
