Since starting your cloth diaper journey?

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 am sure there is more, and I may add later on.

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.

I have learned that I'm a complete CD addict! lol

I am trying to destash right now, and I'm heartbroken... but I know it must be done as I never end up using half of them

I've learned that prefolds are AMAZING. Next baby my stash will be mostly prefolds. I love trifolding them, they are bullet proof. Flip covers or thirsties are my favorite for that.

I've learned that I should always keep some aplix pockets around for babysitters. They never do the snaps right.

I hate Fuzzibunz. Will never buy one again. That bamboo vs cotton vs stay dry really doesnt matter (for my son) as far as absorbancy. And to just go with Tide.

I have learned:

- 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.

If the laundry tabs on aplix worked properly, I'd have all aplix.

To not use hot water when rinsing poop out of your diapers!


'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!
