That's pretty much a personal decision. If you don't know much about cloth, there are a few groups on here that are GREAT, especially when you're first starting. Hubby prefers prefolds and covers (so long as he doesn't have to use a Snappi or pins), but I prefer pocket diapers (LOVE my Bum Geniuses!). Check out those groups here on CM. They have a lot of great info about any kind of cloth diaper you could want. Also, there are some sites that offer mixed "trial" packages of different kinds of diapers. I'd say more about it, but I'm tired. Check out those groups or PM me and I'll give you a bunch of links.
