I use the bum genius 3.0. I really like them cause they are so easy and so cute! I also like these becuase they fit 5 to 35 pound babies so you don't have to keep buying and selling up. They make flushable inserts, I think you can get them at greenmountain.com, which make flushing poop easy or a simple poop scrapper (putty knife works well too.) Good luck.

Hello! We use Coolababy system and they are awesome!!! We are on a tight budget as well and have two boys 15 months apart! We were already cloth diapering our oldest and wanted to buy some more for the new baby, so I searched and searched and found Coolababy's on ebay!! They are VERY similar to Kushies, but are much less expensive! On eBay they usually sell for about $7.00 a diaper (including an insert) and more times than not it's free shipping! SUPER CHEAP and they work GREAT! We actually just bought some more! Good luck and hope everything goes well!

Melisa, how many grobaby diapers do you have? What is the price point? I have been looking at them. Do you have to order them online? I am in Vancouver and have yet to see them in a store.
I like my prefolds and G diapers, and I believe the grobaby are similar? I am getting a bit nervous for when my baby starts crawling as I have heard prefolds tend to leak :S

After testing a few different types of CD, my system of choice is Fuzzi Bunz Pocket diapers. Easy to use, easy to wash, easy to wear. However, I have seen some new diapers out now that look interesting enough to try, but I don't really have a need. There were some initial kinks that I had to work out (wash routine, inserts, etc) but I really do love them and encourage anyone to try them!

I just recently started using gDiapers and so far I love them! No issues with leaking or anything like that. I hope they continue to be this great! I use cloth inserts at home and the flushies when I'm out.

Tots bots bamboozles or motherease toddlease now with ME airflows. Just down to a night nappy now! The bamboozles are soooooooo absorbant but it's a trade off because they take longer to dry. Never had a leak with them though and I've used them in size 1,2 and 3

Itti Bitti convert here, although we use Green Kids at night (my 10 month old could wee for England). I find the snap-in-ones are more absorbent, but husband prefers the all-in-ones. Trim, cute and absorbent!

Gro Baby is awesome. I love them, have never had any leaking issues with them. They are a "hybrid" one-size! We have used them from day one and just bought a whole lot more! We have tried all sorts, (bum genius, happy heiney, kissaluvs, mother ease, pre-folds) and Gro Baby were the easiest, cleanest, cutest option for us yet. Not to mention The Natural Baby Company that manufactures them has ridiculously awesome customer service!

Hemp fitteds and wool for at night and gdiapers with homemade cloth inserts or prefolds instead of flushies. DH prefers the fitteds and covers over the g's but I like the trim fit of the g's and the fact that I can use preemie prefolds in them until baby grows out of the small pants and then infant sized prefolds for ever after that in the mediums and larges. and more prefolds and inserts fit in a load of laundry then fitteds do, so it means less laundry.

I initially used Baby Beehinds fitted bamboo & hemp nappies with covers (wool cover overnight). Now he is more mobile, I find all in ones, snap in's or pocket nappies MUCH easier to get on him & they are often a more trimmer fit.
I have Baby Beehinds Magic Alls (they are a pocket nappy with bamboo inserts that I put in once dry so they r ready to go)) & Bubba Moo all in ones (they have snap in inserts which I put in once dry so they r ready to go) with gorgeous minky prints. Both are good & really easy to use & dry. although I do find the Bubba Moo's are a little on the small side as they are hipsters so would be a challenge to fit a larger baby.
My friend sears by itti bitti - so all depends on what u like & what fits bubs best :D
The Australian Nappy Network has demo kits they can bring out to show all the styles, types & fabrics - great idea me thinks!

Just because I am curious and I have so many ppl ask me. My daughter is 6 months and prefolds are getting a bit more tricky but with tight income we will most likely stick with them until shes more mobile I suppose and see what happens. But I will totally keep in mind the fleece and wool! Thanks so much.

Are you asking because you're trying to figure out what system is best for you or are you just curious?
If its the former, I'd say that what works for one person will most likely be different for you. Here's a simple video that explains the different cloth diapering systems and the pros and cons of each.
If its the latter, then I would say it depends on what stage of baby. When my son was a newborn I used only prefolds with a cover because it was trim and cheap. When he got older and more mobile I had to switch to all in one and pocket diapers because they were faster to put on and easier with him wiggling so much. When he started sleeping through the night, I had to add fitted diapers with fleece and wool covers to my rotation to prevent leaks. So the short answer is... it depends.
Hope that helps.

I sold at my Kushies AIO now I just use Motherease or the Bummis Prefolds. I just liked that they were easier to make fit my DD rather than the Kushies which I personally found I couldn't.
What are the bamboo 2parts?

I like the Kushie system. It's an AIO that lasts a long time and is simple to use. I also love that they have flushable liners for poopy diapers and I can get refills of them online at Walmart. Free shipping then because I use the site-to-store.
