I have tried a lot of different brands. So far I have learned that I don't like Thirsties, because the snaps aren't reinforced. I LOVE Bummis products. RaRz cover are the bane of my existence.
I have also learned that my OCD will not allow me to have a stash of multiple different types of diapers. I don't care if it is multiple brands, but for some reason, if I am using pockets, they must all be pockets.... Strange I know.
I have learned that I hate prefolds and all those prefold diapers I got when I was pregnant were a waste of money. Well, I shouldn't say a waste because I still use them sometimes but I have waaay too many. I am a pocket or AIO type of girl. I also learned that I am lazy and having just enough diapers to get through 2 days was never going to work for me.

- simple is good. When I have 8 different types of diapers and half of them need snapping in inserts or stuffing or folding or even just matching up their special inserts, laundry is a PITA and I am the only one who can properly sort/fold/put them away. When I only have 2 kinds it is easy and DH can do it too.
- Like Ashley... I love prefolds I should have stuck with them from the beginning instead of getting obsessed with trying everything, and I should have started trifolding sooner to stretch the fit range. (I can still trifold medium GMDs on DD but she outgrew snappiing or even pinning them when she was like 6 months old!)
- Even though most people love snaps for durability, my hands are dumb with snaps and despite the tattered look it often gets and the occasional laundry chains, I love hook & loop/aplix for adjustable fit and fast changes.
- I love wool but the less time I have, the more I put off washing and lanolizing it, and I just can't do it anymore for #2. I will be doing more fleece instead.
