I have been using Gpants for quite a while now and my baby seems to be loving it.

We use gDiapers and they are super easy! I use gCloth inserts at home, and the biodegradable/flushable gRefills on the go and overnight. Your hubby would prob like the gRefills- my husband is terrified of cloth but does not mind the flushables. See www.gdiapers.com for more info, or the FaceBook group! Or you can messgae me for more info, but their website it great! We've used g's since my LO was born 7 months ago.

I just keep the dirties in my Diaper Champ and wash every 2-3 days.
I use Bummis Bio-Soft liners to catch the poop, and then just flush it! You can wash the liners that are just peed on. (ie no hand in the toilet)
For washing, I use Maggies' Soap Nuts instead of detergent (www.maggiespureland.com), and I add a small scoop of Oxi-Clean and a big scoop of Baking Soda. Do one rinse-only cycle in the wash on cold, then a full wash cycle on hot.

I also use cloth wipes- just Gerber washcloths that I spray prior to using. Spray bottle with a home-made mix: 4 cups water, 4 Tablespoons Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap (I use the one with Almond oil to moisturize), and 8 drops of Tea Tree Oil. I just mix it in a big bottle, shake it, and store. I have a small spray bottle to use on the change table. It lasts me a few weeks, and is definetly cheaper than buying wipes!

Good luck

https://www.facebook.com/AngelsRainbowBottoms Must check out ARB Diapers. She's the best! Affordable and adorable, what better combo! My stash is made up of all her diapers. She sells in stock and does custom orders. Also makes wipes, nursing pads, wet bags, mamma cloth, doll diapers and blankets.

Prefolds for very young (1-3 months). Then i tried a number of different types ~ having an outer wrap was great for runny bf poo.
We are now all guns blazing with bumgenius only ~ it's taken me 16 months, but I've now decided on this brand only!!

I have 31 growing green http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/grow... size diapers with thirsties covers size 1 and 2. If anyone is interested let me know. Only 10 of them have been used. All have been washed the first time suggested washes. They are awesome diapers. I am only trying to sell because washer and dryer broke and I am a laundry mat girl now. Enough said. I am so sad.
Please let me know. thanks.

Kushies have worked well for us and are a little more affordable than a lot of the other brands. These are what our daycare uses on all of their babies.

I LOVE my happy heinys one-sized and also had good luck with the fuzzi bunz (just didn't care much for the snaps). The bum genius was too small for my kiddo to actually take us to potty training, and I had a stink issue with it on the second wash. I probably could have figured a different wash routine to make it work, but the happy heinys were easier to care for and fit better. GOOD LUCK!!! It really depends on what you like and what your budget will allow. Try several different brands before you buy a whole stash and if you go with pocket diapers...don't underestimate the importance of the stuffer that you use and how you use it. Most of my leaks the first week I used pocket diapers were operator errors :)

We tried Bum Genius 3.0s...I had 24 of them and LOVED them. However, we had to change diapers because my 2nd son was allergic to the suedecloth inside of the diaper. Grrr. It made me so sad to part with my lovely and expensive stash of dipes. :( I then bought a new stash mixed with Onesize Fuzzi Bunz and Medium Fuzzi Bunz and I can honestly say that I love them even more than my Bum Genius...never thought that was possible! :) I guess that every baby is different and will fit into each diaper differently. I would suggest if someone is starting out with the cloth dipes to get a few of each brand and experiment That way you can decide which one works best for your baby.

I can't wait to start using cloth with our little one once she comes - my best friends are the ones that've turned me on to them and they're most fond of Fuzzibunz brand. They have a One-Size diaper as well as a Perfect Fit version (that comes in 3 diff. sizes, but most babies will never fit into a Large in these).

Bumgenius have been my favorite after trying prefolds, fitted diapers, mommys touch pockets, haute pockets & others. Very durable and good. I've heard good stuff about their new flip, and also fuzzibunz are great - I have the fitteds but I bet their one size are awesome! I find the fuzzibunz mediums fit a huge size range though. But still, I'd say - bum genius.

Bumgenius and Blueberry Minky's work really well for my daughter. the bumgenius are multi sized so go from birth to potty. the blueberry minky's come in multi sized and sized nappies. I also tried bambino mio - they seemed like a good idea but i found they didn't keep her dry even with their own brand of liner.

I just found out about Super G diapers and it's nice to have the option to use biodegradable liners for when you're out and about. I have the BumGenius and haven't had any leaking issues. I chose them to do the one diaper system til they're in regular undies. I didn't want to keep buying different sizes. Fortunately I had someone else gift them to me so it wasn't an expense out of our pocket. I tried the chinese-prefold and didn't like that it was cotton because just like if your jeans got wet, the moisture stayed against my baby's skin. I don't like that I have use fleece but it works better for us. If someone has the same model of the BumGenius but has it in snaps, GO FOR IT! That's the only draw back, snaps last longer and don't stick to everything in your laundry and don't need to be cleaned out once in a while like velcro does. Good luck in your search. Cottonbabies.com is a great website, too.

I found them to be shaped weird inside for us but I also didn't use them exclusively. I think if you use them with all of their components and that's it you'll maybe have better success. I don't know I didn't use them past NB. They are sized so you'll have to invest in more covers as baby grows. Look into GroBabys. They are one Size AI2 or hybrids and they are organic cotton. They are a little bulky on a NB but really save you when baby gets bigger. I don't think either one will be great for nighttime though. I know my son wets through GroBabys at night. I never used Gdiapers at night. I like Sustainable Babyish the best at night with a wool or PUL cover.

I can's suggest any that I have used since I make and sell cloth diapers and have only ever used the ones I make. But i think i make a pretty mean diaper. In fact you can see a review and enter to win one here if you are interested!

I make a one size that will fit all the way through potty training. I have a tutorial on my web page on how to make a front snapping diaper fit little babies and helps the diaper grow with them. you can see that here

I hope you find something that works for you! :)

I like prefolds a lot too, nice organic, fluffy indian or pakistani cotton ones......Swaddlebees are my favorite covers, thirsties a close second! I like the Huggabuns new one size for a dipe that will grow- and they are cheaper than some of the more famous brands out there. BunGenius was my least favorite- they were the most expenseive and leak constantly for us.

My friend really likes the GroBaby organic line. I use contours and covers and have been happy, but my baby is on the small side and I find they're a little less bulky.

Fuzzi Bunz OS (one size)! I tried the g diapers, and poo instantly ran everywhere! I know others have had success, but it wasn't worth it to me when my FBs were so much easier and better! They are the only (truly) fully adjustable one size diaper. Granted, they are a tad bulky till baby is about 9 lbs, but still so worth it. It may seem less messy with the g diaper style insert, but I didn't find that to be so. The Fuzzi Bunz seem pricey, but they dry so fast you can get by on less of these than other dipes. And how can you beat 7-35 lbs!?
