Just curious. We are currently in Huggies size 2 and I am not a fan. We have lots if little leaks. I usually use Pampers swaddlers which I love. They have always worked best for my boys and their "fat baby" bodies. lol

If you are using cloth diapers, which ones do you like?

An update on our diaper situation - we were going to run out of our Pampers before our next delivery from Amazon made it to us so I picked up a small package of Target's store brand size 1. It has only been a couple days and so far they are pretty good. They looked kind of cheap when I first took them out of the package but they are easy to put on and haven't leaked yet (even overnight). They also have a nice polka dot pattern -not that it matters but sometimes I don't like it when DD1 is in something light in color and you can see Elmo's face on her butt.
The Target diapers were cheaper than Pampers - even using the discounts I get on Amazon Prime. So I think I might get a small package in DD1's size to try them out as well - she will be a bigger test with all the moving she does.

I would take them, Kim. You can use them to stuff your pockets. I agree with Erin that you should wash them or even boil them before you use them.

I'm absolutely obsessed with CDs. You have no idea! Maybe it's because it's the first time that I'm doing it. I used to blog when I was doing online dating, so I decided to blog about it, as opposed to annoying my friends and family with it all. I'll review the diapers that I have and add a review any time I try a new one. I'm also looking into selling them.

I'd take them and try them but while you're at home. That way if they do leak it's not a big problem. I wouldn't think anything could mess with prefods even if they are 14 years old. Just wash them a few times on hot before using them just incase there is anything built up in them after all these years.
When I was starting out cloth diapering I went crazy with the purchses for my son and bought way more diapers then we need. Now that my daughter is able to wear the one size and some medium sized diapers I'm overwhelmed by how many we own.

I just started cloth diapering two weeks ago. We are trying out fuzzibunz and BumGenius. I've only had a few leaks and a couple poop leaks. Mostly around the legs since jb's legs are still pretty skinny. I just got a one size fuzzibunz today which I'm excited about. They have lots of buttons and internal adjustments to the waists and legs. Dh still has had the worst poopy blowout, which was in a pampers Swaddlers.

Question for those of you who cd. I have a friend that cd-ed her twins 13-14 years ago and possibly her 7 year old (I can't remember how old she was when she was adopted). She has Chinese prefolds that she has offered to me. Would you take them? I don't know how good of condition they're in but I also wondered if age could affect them. I was thinking they could be good overnights.

I didn't know that anyone else was CDing full time. I've been using Softbums almost exclusively since Sebastian was born. They were the only OS diapers that I could find that fit from birth, even though he was less than 7 lbs. I didn't want to buy every size. I had a handful of Babyland diapers that were horrible and I'm tossing them. I just discovered AlvaBaby diapers and I love the 4.0s. (They're listed as the Color Snap Double Gusset diapers on the site.) I've been buying the cutest designs on FB in a private group. I asked my FB friends for a cloth diaper intervention. LOL!
I totally agree that you get way less leaks and blowouts with cloth. I shudder to think of the poopsplosions that have been contained by my cloth! I've only had it leak out twice and that was because of the sheer volume of poop.

We are a Pampers family. DD2 is in size 1 Pampers Swaddlers and DD1 is in size 4 Pampers Cruisers.
For the FTM's out there, when you get into larger size diapers there are way too many options. I remember reading lots of reviews to try to pick the best ones but in the end I just had to try them. For DD1 she can either wear the Pampers Baby Dry or Cruisers and I find the Cruisers to be better. It is hard to say why exactly, but they just seem better and worth the slightly higher price.
We also use Pampers Soft Care wipes. I used Huggies wipes for a long time and then got a sample of the soft care from Pampers which convinced me to switch.

I've been using Pampers size 1's since Costco didn't have the smaller size Huggies.  I like both brands though.  Everything I use has an eventual blow out.. it seems comparable to me.  I have even had her blow out the cloth diapers.  We use both.. but I have been doing more sposies as I've been lazy.  When I do cloth, it is an indian prefold newborn size, with a cover.. usually Thirsties.

We do cloth diapers full time. We mostly use Green Mountain Diapers prefolds (love them) and kissaluvs size 0 (starting to leak without a doubler) with a thirsties duo cover. We also have one groviva, a rumparooz and a couple thirsties duo pockets. At night we use Bum Genius 4.0, which works well but are super bulky.
We use Fuzzibunz perfect size for my son's nightime diaper and I love it! It hasn't leaked yet, which I can't say for the Bum Genius ones. He's two though so he's in the size large.
It's funny all the people having leaks with huggies since my son would always leak with pampers but huggies had fewer leaks. I still find the fewest leaks with the cloth diapers. We have yet to have a blow out!

Ok, I'm not usually brand loyal with most things but after the third poopy diaper blowout with the huggies, I'm going with the pampers. We were jut given a box of pampers today, they just fit my JB better. The huggies seem to be better for shorter and stockier. My sister uses them for her kids (both in the 90th percentile for weight and around the 50th for height) but for my peanut, I'll stick with pampers for now. Oohhh, I am getting some cloth diapers to try out soon. We got 6 weeks of a pocket diaper service as a shower gift and he's finally big enough for them. We'll see how that goes, they use the fuzzibunz perfect size.
