Do you mostly use one-size diapers/covers or sized?

Thank you Natalie (MrsStuartD) for my Beautiful Siggy!!!

I like sized thirsties and fishnoodles best, But i am also liking size 2 duos. For some reason size 1 duos only fit during the NB stage. I also like flip covers, but they only started fitting when ds was 3 months old.

my dd is REALLY tiny, so I LOVE sized diapers! I've been using the same small dream-eze and small bum genius diapers since she was 3 months old and now she'll be a yr in 9 days!!!! but I can see the benefit of one-size if your baby gains weight fast/normal!

*thank you meddleman (magda) for my siggy!*

I love sized Fuzzibunz and ME Sandy's (also sized) best of all. One size are practical, but they tent to be bulkier than a sized diaper.

well my initial stash was OSFA pockets, so I use them a lot - more because I HAVE them & don't want to not use them, after the money I spent on them.

I think if I had no money issues & could do it my way, I would do sized diapers right through.. particularly during the first year, because the OSFA just seem so bulky - even though she's getting bigger really fast...

We only have OS for Olivia. But I do have infant prefolds for the LO on the way. As soon as she's able to switch to OS that's what she'll be using, too. Sized would probably be great, but we are trying to spend as little money as possible.

Thank you so much, Kiliki, for my gorgeous siggy!!

I have to say that I have gotten rid of almost all of my OS in favor of sized. I just like the way they fit better and have better luck getting them to not leak. If my budget was unlimited (I wish), I would have all sized. But I am getting some OS for the new baby coming and will be using my flips and best bottoms with him/her too.

Mostly OS, but now that he's in Larges, I'm more willing to buy sized diapers since I'm guessing (hoping!?) they will fit him longer. I'm very glad I didn't invest in many small diapers. But I think if I had a smaller baby, I would feel differently
