We are exclusively using BumGenius 4.0s and I loooove them. Used them for nearly 7 weeks now & no complaints.

The only other brands I've tried are Fuzzibunz XS & S...hated those...the leg holes are not adjustable so they just didn't work for us, but perhaps the FB all in ones are better?

And Rumparooz; really like these because they have the 'double wall' around the legs like disposables do. I like these just as much as bumgenius, but the BG are cheaper, so that's the only reason we went with those. If you could find a good deal on rumparooz or find some used ones I'd say they are well worth a try.

There's a deal today on OhKaty's on Green Baby Bargains. They are pockets. I bought 3 last time. The lining is sooo soft. I really like Thirsties Fab Fitteds. They need a cover but I found they fit so well and are really absorbent.

We are using the BG 4.0's too and also love them!! I can tell she is so comfortable in them compared to sposies. They also wash really well, I thought they'd stain a ton but I'm happy with them!

cool. I have prefolds and rumparooz covers and I really like rumparooz. I have two Smart Snugs pockets but I haven't tried them yet. I'm going to try to stay with prefolds for the most part but I want to buy some more pockets or AIO's. Wish me luck because i really want to do cloth!

We're still in NB cloth but I'm loving our Happy Heineys pockets and Swaddlebees Simplex.

The first time I used them they leaked (she was too small and I didn't know when I'd have to change it) so I used 2 NB inserts and no leaking since

I like osocozy prefolds (surprisingly better than green mountains) with flips covers. I like those better than the thirsties since they kind of cut into her legs!

Good luck, I hope it works for you this time around!

I commented on your post of Facebook but I'll still share here.

We mostly use Imagine Indian prefolds (from Nicki's Diapers) with snap pies and Thirsties Duo Wraps. I love them. In our diaper bag, I keep two Thirsties Duo AIOs, which make diapering while out of the house easier and less complicated.

We also have a handful of gDiapers that I use occasionally. They're a bit more complicated than I like but they're cute, effective (when sealed properly), and more trim than pre-folds.

Our OS pockets still don't fit right around his legs so I can't share how they work for us yet and I'm expecting a fitted in the mail (from a blog giveaway) so I can let you know how I like that once I've used it.

I didn't see this until after I posted. Lol.

We use Imagine diapers and I love them. They are super absorbent, gentle against his butt... Just great diapers. I got 24 unbleached of the infant sized and plan to get 24 (or more) organic premium size pre-folds when he outgrows the ones we have. They're a bit bulky since we have to fold them down some but it doesn't seem to bother him and it was more cost effective than buying the newborn, which he probably would already have outgrown.

I've read good reviews for them online but I've never used them.

I hate our Kawaii pockets. They are too bulky and they fit weird. I also hate the Imagine fitteds (loved the prefolds, though). The Imagine ones are sewn so crappy they're already falling apart. Not a good buy, IMO.

I use the Sunbabies and they are my favorite! I don't use the microfiber insert, but get the Fuzzibunz minky inserts and a thirsties hemp insert and LOVE that combo. Sunbabies are by far my favorite diaper I've ever tried.

They have great reviews, but for some reason they just don't work for us. I still use them, but not if I have my Sunbabies or LotusBumz available.
