I know everyone is different, and has different experiences,

But what is the 1 brand or style of diaper you hate?

^Ditto.

And I am going against the grain here...I hate pockets. All that stuffing, random inserts that don't fit, the shifting around of the insert, the bulk...not.for.me. We stick with prefolds for babies, AIOs for older kids, and some fitteds. I just can't handle the time suck it takes to stuff enough diapers for two children in cloth (possibly three in the future).

OMG Ashlee with THREE in cloth you are going to have the most awesome and vast cloth stash of all time!!!!! I can't wait to see pictures

I am having a hard time thinking of cloth I hate. I always hate overspending on stuff that doesn't seem worth it, and I also hate stuff that's hard to get clean. And M is very sensitive skinned, we figured out that certain bindings and synthetic stay dry fabrics by her skin were bad for her.

Oh, I know. I had a Mommy's Touch cover that I hated. It had so many snaps that just looking at the front made me dizzy. I could not figure it out for the life of me.

hmmm, I think I would say that I hate my babyland diapers WITHOUT a cover with them. They leak really bad but were so cheap so it's not a big loss and they actually work just fine as long as you double stuff them and/or put a light cover over them.

Have not found a diaper I hate. I dislike using prefolds. Fuzzibunz (I only own 1 though) have been awesome for me, it fit my son from birth nicely.

My 3 year old HATES snapping diapers

I hate the AI2s that have the "tongue" snap in soaker. It always seems too long and awkward. The ones I am thinking of in particular are the BottomBumper side-snapping sized diapers I used to have.

(I happen to love the side-snapping Simplex 2.0, though!)

I don't HATE anything really. I am a big fan of pockets. I make my daughter stuff them as one of her chores, so that's not really on my radar, lol. I'm just now starting have have microfiber insert issues and they've diapered quite a few butts now over several years (not just my kids, my friends have used them too), so I feel like we got a good life out of them.

I'm not a huge fan of prefolds on their own. I have to have some sort of liner to keep the moistness away from the skin. Even at the newborn stage. I use them because they're cheap and they get the job done. But they have issues for us.

for me it changes daily, right now im not liking any pockets because they just arent absorbent enough for my kids, they are near the end of their life and have had a good run but im pretty fed up at the moment

my 3 in cloth stash is pretty simple, i bought a bunch of flats for home some fitteds (daddies request) and a few AIOs for the diaper bag

AIOs. Hate not being able to control the absorbency in most and I do not have the patience for drying. Not to mention they are more expensive usually.

Happy Heinys.

HATED them when my son was in cloth... they fit him terribly because he has no booty, lol. I don't mind them too much with my first daughter because she has a gigantic bum, haha... but I still don't like HHs. We'll see how the one HH we have fits my youngest daughter.

I'm not a big fan of AIOs. Yes, they are quick and easy... but I find that they don't do as good a job containing the messes than other types of diapers. I like AIOs that are stuffable (so you can add more absorbency if needed), but even then, I'd pick a fitted or even a pocket diaper over an AIO any day.

I haven't gotten to the diapering stage yet but in theory I'm already hating pockets because I know my husband will not stuff them.

When not pregnant I drink a glass of wine while stuffing all my pockets at once. I miss being able to do that.

Pockets are easy imo. Stuffing takes all of 2 seconds and theyre just like a sposie. Easy for husbands My DH will NOT use anything but a pocket on Nicholas lol. I've tried showing him just to fold a prefold into a cover or put on a fitted or hybrid, heck no! too complicated he says.

I think I am beginning to realize just how lucky I am with my hubby. He stuffs diapers, washes bottles, changes diapers, does the entire night time routine on weekends and goes to school part time and works 55 hours a week. I think I scored in the hubby category!

Fuzzibunz one size. They are an awful fit, and when I tried them the pocket was "sticky"

I'm not a fan of minky diapers. I know they're super soft and that's good and fine, but all the minkys I've owned seem to leak much easier and quicker which eliminates the cute "oh my baby's butt is soft" factor for me.

I also don't care for fitteds. It doesn't make sense to me to have to cover up all that cuteness with a cover. And then you're spending the time putting on two diapers basically on a squirmy kid. Just not for me.
