Any fellow cloth diapering mommas know if one is better than the other or are they both just as good?! Or If they've had any other brand reccomendations, I love the hybrid option!

Ive been cloth diapering my babe with the starter bundle from gdiapers since birth. I love them , however, I do have leaks at every day. Totally not the end of the world, but sometimes it would be nice to not have to wash his covers so much. 

thanks for any responces in adavnce!

The Charlie banana are pocket diapers. Each cover must be washed after every use. I like them for skinny babies but the waist is snug on my kids when they are in the chunky phase:)

I wouldn't use either, too expensive. For pockets I use alvababy pockets. I generally use thirsties or kissaluvs covers with flats or prefolds.

I have had problems with my Charlie Banana leaking, but I only cd part time, so I'm not going to claim to be an expert. :)

I have only experience with Charlie Banana and I hate it. I have tried all sorts of brands, and CB gives me the most trouble with leaking. It's a waste of money, IMO.

I have Charlie banana. They are OK. You have to use the correct size insert or they will leak. I prefer prfolds because I hate stuffing the diaper inserts.

I hated Gdiapers honestly...they were such a pain with 3 pieces and they leakd.  We like out charlie bananas alot, we used onesize CB so they were adjustable
