Some have snaps ( I prefer those) and some have Velcro to secure them. I didn't have just one favorite brand. I had favorites for each occasion lol. Pocket diapers are the best for over night in my opinion becuse you can stuff them with extra inserts. I liked all in ones for out on public because they were thinner under clothes. I actually have some different kinds just sitting in a box if you want them PM me you are welcome to them! My son has been potty trained for over a year lol. I sold some but the ones I didn't sell I still have.

ETA:
I washed mine in cloth diaper detergent, my favorite was Crunchy Clean. You need probably at least 24 so if you change baby every 2 hours you will have to wash every other day. I always washed mine every day but if you are super busy you could buy more diapers and wash less often, like every 2 days or something.

 1. The best IMO are KuWaii baby and Little Fancy Pants , BUT always have some cheap Sunbaby on hand in case of a suck day :0

2. In a basket dedicated to only cloth. DO NOT soak. It has been changed as far as recommendation goes!

3. I use cloth diaper wash only! ALWAYS wash in ONLY cold, as hot water sets in the urine and feces kind of like blood! Wash in cold, and hang dry if possible. NEVER use fabric softener or dryer sheets as they will ruin your absorbancy!

4. When stripping use ONLY cold water and wash them until there are no soap bubble in the washing machine!

GOOD LUCK MAMA!

 I respectably disagree with the amount of 24 diapers needed! Depending on the age of the child, you need about 12. Wash 6 at a time, and you will be fine! Definitely buy online, you will get wholesale prices and save a TON! Boutiques are really expensive, but convenient! Make a choice...lol I will put up some websites in a minute!
