What kind of diapers do you use?

We used cloth for all 3 of my kids. (pockets for my oldest, then prefolds and fitteds for my daughter, then mostly prefolds for my youngest). I have tried AIOs and found some I loved before, and not really sure why I didn't use them. I think I just liked how "fun" prefolds were!

This time, I was on the fence and considering disposables, which I did use with my first for a while. So I was considering Honest Company. I liked that they deliver and have organic products, etc. But I was also considering using AIOs. They take forever to dry, but I should be fine if I get enough diapers for 2 days but do the laundry on them daily.

Anyway, I bounced back and forth for a while, but eventually decided we were doing HC diapers for the newborn stage (this would actually be cheaper than having a newborn AIO stash) until we fit in the one size diapers. Then we're using cloth during the day from about 10lbs on. We'll use HC diapers for nighttime, babysitters, and long trips out of the house. It will probably put us at using cloth and disposables 50/50, but we'll see. If the baby isn't a heavy wetter we might use them at night, too.

I figure we have a lot of cloth diapering mamas, but even those who aren't, what do you use?

We use the Honest Company! I love, love, LOVE them. The diapers work really well, and the patterns make a dirty task a little more fun

We also use a lot of their household products...it is nice to just be able to use things without worrying that I'm harming my kids with some kind of awful chemical. The home delivery is a lifesaver as well, and their customer service is fantastic. I highly recommend them.

SO glad to hear that, KMH! We plan to use their products, too. I'm getting the sample for now, but after that I am switching. I'm SO excited about them, too!

We use cloth pretty much 99% of the time. Liam often wears a sposie for bedtime if I don't have any of the super-soaking nighttime diapers clean (I have three...and sometimes I don't wash but every four or five days). But the rest we use cloth.

We switched from sposies when Liam was 9 months. And really haven't looked back.

We use a bit of everything. Newborn stages it's generally prefolds, covers, fitteds, and wool. Although we have pockets and AIOs for the newbie stage as well. Once they hit the medium-large stash, it's generally AIOs and fitteds with wool. We have come hybrids with cloth inserts (flips, best bottoms) too. But we don't use them much unless we travel. My cloth stash is massive and not exactly the *most* economical. But I am still saving money (considering liam isnt keen on training and they will make it through 3 kids at least) and I enjoy them. So it's all good.

We CD almost exclusively but I decided sposies were easier for traveling, and on rare occasions of M on nasty antibiotics, when I had bad morning sickness and M was pooping multiple times a day and I couldn't face spraying off so many poops, and her grandma pretty much only uses sposies. We use Nature Babycare because they don't have any SAP gel and M does not get too rashy in them (I think her skin gets dry too easily and that's why she reacts to other sposies). They are pricey so I try to minimize our use of them. Plus I hate the garbage and our city gives us a TINY bin with an insert in it to make it HALF SIZE and then we'd have to pay twice as much for a bigger bin, we had major trash issues when I had morning sickness.

My friend just told me about Honest Company, I had never heard of them. Their diapers are adorable.

When I was pregnant I did look into cloth, and I knew I would be traveling and cloth would not be an option. We started to travel when Drake was 15 days old. But anyways, sometimes I still think about it, but then sometimes I am like it is so easy to throw a diaper away. I use Pampers. They work the best for me. I think they are the softest.

I really should look into getting them! I am at the point though where I feel like well Drake is almost 15 months old now, but I KNOW that does not really matter. I still have a while in diapers.

I use sposies, I own cloth, but I keep having problems with cleaning them. I had to share a washer and the neighbor lady kept throwing them on the dirty floor after a double cycle (because we took too long I guess), so I would have to rewash them, and in our new place we need to get a new washer before we start on cloth.

I use up&up diapers, because they're the best deal I've found by far, and I can get them delivered.

I use pampers when I use disposables.
For cloth I had pockets- mostly cheapy sunbabies and alvababies. They annoyed me and always leaked.
Recently, though, I had to switch back to cloth after many months of using sposies. Avery had this bum rash that would not go away and I was wondering if it could be the diapers so I switched back to cloth. I also found now she doesn't leak nearly as much.
I just bought some bum genious elementals organic, which a sooo nice! They are an AIO but have a unique design I don't think it will take long for them to dry. I still need to get them pre-washed , morning sickness is still really kicking my butt.

I tried using cloth full time but got burned out fast since we live in an apartment and our washer dryer is 3 flights of stairs down (and back up)...
But I bought indian prefolds and flip covers after trying bumgenuis pocket style and finding them too much to deal with.
As soon as the weather warms up a bit, we're switching back to cloth full time and then potty training. =)

We use cloth most of the time. For trips out of the house I use sposies a lot because I'm not always in the mood for carrying a lot of cloth plus I have to be sure we have access to good changing facilities. At home we mostly use fitteds but I dont want to touch a wet one without knowing I can wash my hands. Pockets are a good option but if they get too wet they'll leak on skinnieminny.

When we use sposies we use nature's baby care. In here they dont cost any more than other sposies. I feel much better about using a sposie that a) wont be around for centuries in a landfill and b) is not full of creepy chemicals. I also find that they dont stink as badly as some sposies I have had the displeasure of using.

We use cloth full time. I figured out great nighttime diapering combos (took long enough) so we haven't bought a sposie in quite a while. I love it! We use a combo of Kawaiis, fuzzibunz, blueberry diapers, and sunbabies which I don't really like but it's the majority of my stash because I figured they'd be like Kawaiis. Hope to get more of other brands eventually.
I started with the cloth when Ash was 3 or 4 months old and we did sposies a lot with her due to some pretty bad detergent allergies (bleeding bum rash with all but one detergent! and we tried about 4-5) and she peed a LOT at night. But now she's 99% potty trained except for bedtime and pees less at bedtime.
Matthew pees a LOT, but I figured out the right combo for his bedtime diaper!

We use cloth 100% of the time. We are leaving the kids with a sitter for the first time on Tuesday and I bought a package of sposies for her. I actually had to ask what size to buy because I was totally clueless. I haven't looked back since switching with our second child. We have mostly bgs and happy heinys with a few other randoms thrown in.

Cloth. Well, DS uses 7th gen at night because everything else gives him blisters at night. During the day DS is mostly in Blueberry and Kawaii pockets. Zoe is mostly in fitteds now that I've started sewing my own.
