Another vote for prefolds (I used the old-school "infant size") and flats for newborns. I LOVE flats because you can customize them so well, but the husband is folding challenged so he stuck with prefolds. My favorite covers were Thirsties, both the extra small and duo size 1.

I also had 12 little joeys, which I had read great things about. I was SO SAD because they just always leaked all over his clothes. :-( They were so darn cute but useless compared to good old-fashioned cotton on a newborn. For baby 2 I will definitely be buying some GMD newborn size for the first weeks before switching to my trusty infant size. They worked, but were awfully bulky on a newborn.

Starting at 4 months or so, we switched to using almost exclusively bum genius 4.0s. They've been great but now they need their elastics replaced. Plus now we have an HE top load washer and it seems harder to keep the microfiber clean, so I'll probably stick with cotton a lot more next time.
