When my husband and I started collecting our stash before our babe got here, we got a variety of diapers. Thought we’d end up using those cute pocket and aio’s the most. Now, the pockets, aios, and fitted are in a basket in the closet out of commission til I get the guts up to sell them and we only use prefolds, flats, and pul and wool covers. They make so much more sense to me for us. I never have to worry about pee repelling off the microfleece pockets and they are much easier to care for in my opinion. As her needs change I fold a little differently to accomodate that need with the same diaper. They also seem trimmer to me because I can put the majority of the absorbency where she needs it instead of all over. I love prefolds! (and flats)

My newborn stash was half prefolds and I was really surprised how much I loved them. So simple to wash and yes cheap! I have 12 that fit my 23 month old now but don’t use them as much as she is squirmy. But my sis, is using my prefolds for my 2 month old nephew and they are her favorite diaper. Looking forward to using the tiny prefolds again as baby #3 is on its way!

It’s amusing that the more ‘advanced’ our civilization gets the more we realize we need to buy simple, natural and eco friendly products.

I started cloth diapering at 10 months and I was rather surprised to find that I love my prefolds. For the next baby I plan on using mainly prefolds with covers until baby is out of the newborn stage. Who knows, maybe even flats!

I started with AIO. Hated the routine. Took a break from them all together for a few months. Switched to Econobum prefolds & covers (no snappis) and I am in love. Cheap, easy, effective. About to have another baby & we’ll see how CD with 2 under 2 goes!
