I am planning on buying the box set from CottonBabies this Friday for my DD. It will be our first try at cloth diapering. I am so excited. These seemed like the best option for starting out, to me. They are well-priced. If cloth diapering seems to work for us after I buy this set, then I plan on purchasing a supply of BumGenius for DH and Daycare.
I have the set and am sort of 50/50 on liking it or not. The covers are sooo thin and the prefolds are really bulky. It's enough that I have to adjust my baby's carseat straps to allow for the extra bulk. I don't need to do that with my Flips. I use them when she's going to be eating a messy meal or due to poo. The rest of the time I use the Flips. I'm planning on picking up some BGs or more Flips this weekend so the Econobums will be going further down the line.
I really like the econobum. The prefolds work great for ds, but I think they would be too big for a younger baby. The thinness of the cover doesn't bother me, it seems to hold in all the mess, in fact better than my g-diapers. I will probably pick up a few more because they seem to fit Eli really well.
I have all econobums and love them..Some ppl say they are bulky but I have less bulk with these than my pocket diapers I used to have..The covers are thin but durable as long as you don't rank on them..the prefolds wouldn't fit a newborn well but at around 4 months they can be folded down in the front or back a bit and fit well..they are also super absorbant and the customer service at cotton babies is amazing..I ordered 4 more of these 5 days ago and received them 3 days ago and the shipping was free(econo shipping)..I'd grab one and try it..I havent had a prob with mine yet..
