A question for cloth diapering mamas

What kind of cloth diapers do you use/prefer? I am planning on cloth diapering, and will be home laundering my diapers. I'm looking for a relatively easy system to use, and I'm kind of in the dark on what the best way to go would be... all-in-one diapers, pre-folds with a cover and insert.. ext. Also, where do you buy your diapers. I have found many discount stores to have very few option, and I have point of reference to use on what would be the most efficient, easy to launder, and with little to no leaking problems. Any advice on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • I use Koshies from they are all in ones and I do my own laudary. I have heard from other people that they take longer then the other ones but these are the only kind I use.

  • I love fuzzi bunz. Aside from those I like prefolds and covers from Wiggle Worm Bottoms.

  • I have found Tiny Tush to be the best pocket easy to use, clean, adjust to size (one size from 7-35 pounds, so you save lots of money there!!) Check out my site for information and how-to and to purchase these great diapers. Best prices!!

  • I use prefolds with a cover (a good cheap and efficient way to go) and I also use pockets. BumGenius and Haute Pockets mostly. I buy them from I put all of them in a dry diaper pail and then launder when it gets full. I make my own laundry detergent, but I still only use 1/3 of the amount and a little vinegar in the rinse cycle. I do a hot wash with an extra rinse.

  • Liz, what do you put in your home made laundry detergent? I've read that regular detergent (even dreft) can cause unnecessary wear and tear. GREAT idea on making your own. I hope you don't mind sharing your recipe with me!
