For reasons of money, my husband and I have decided to go the route of the cloth diaper. Does anyone have any recommendations?

This is my first child, and I've decided to cloth diaper. My friend gave me about a bazillion different brands. She really liked the Bum Genius 4.0 one-size diapers. I have 11 of them, I think and plan to use those primarily and use the size specific ones as my stash runs low. She did say, though, that they are kind of bulky for a NB. So, if you go the one-size route, maybe invest in some NB as well. Good luck!

oh yea forgot to metion i love and i mean love my diaper spray i still use it.It hooks to your toilet so you can spray poop and pee out of the cloth which makes it easy to do and keeps stains away. plus when your kid gets older you can spray there butt and under wear when they get poop in them. great for muddy clothes its amazing how handy it has become.

I love Bumgenius 4.0 cloth diapers. They are a little bulky for a newborn as someone previously mentioned but I have been using them for over 18 months and they still look brand new and I don't remember ever having a leaky diaper. Got ours at Pure and Simple Baby:

They are very nice and helpful.

I use Smartipants for my baby. They are made with breathable fibers and are free from chemical and irritants. And the major advantage is that they are reusable diapers, are easy to use and easy to care.

I have been using “Just Simply Baby” brand cloth diapers for 6 months now. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE!!! They are affordable and work just as well, if not better, than the expensive name brand diapers. I would recommend these to anyone if you are going cloth diaper. I have never had any problems with them. They have all kinds of adorable prints, they ALWAYS have good deals and sales, and they have a 30 day money back guarantee, so they are deff worth a try! The double gusset diapers are my favorite, and you can save some money by doing a package deal if you are needed to buy a few. I also have a coupon code for a 10% refund on your first purchase. And it doesn't expire!

Heres the code: JSBAR197

We actually got a regular bucket and leave it in the bathroom. After rinsing and poop diapers, we pour vinegar in the bucket so that at night I can just throw it in the wash once I get home from work. Before bed I toss it in the dryer (or hang to dry) so it is ready in the morning.

We use flip (one size fits all) with change in inserts and Kushies (just like a regular diaper but cloth) We love both of them!

bum genius snap 4.0 all the way. a little expensive to start out but I have saved around $1000 per month on diapers just by putting our little ones in them.

i have to say after cloth diaper after cloth diaper i fell into bum genius it was the only one my mom could use my husband could use. there is also the one i cant remember the name of right now but you snap the pad in and only have to change the cover not gdiaper because this one snaps in but that cloth was nice too. (Grovillla)There are cloth web sites that sell that have a program where you can try some different ones out with out costing you an arm and leg and you can return the ones you dont like which is nice. I didnt like prefolds intill i tryed Econobum cheap to buy and work great i still use them for potty training. they are great plus for my older one i took the pad cut it to fit the underwear to give him night time protection and use the water proof cover over his underwear when we go out. so not only where they cheap to buy but they lasted till my both boys so they last through more then one kid but till my boys are 3 and 2 and still using them worth the price.Same goes with grovilla i use for potty training.Happy Heiny was also a nice one for my second baby he had chunky legs and they fit him my first they kinda leaked because he was so skinny.But for a new born i start off with kissluvs they work great for just borns

I use Gdiapers. Brought off eBay but available for around 19.00 each
From website. As a full time cloth diaper family, we rotate about 7
Of them. Like that they have a disposable and cloth pad option and
That they come in a lot of colors.

from everything i have researched it really depends on what your lifestyle is and of course how sensitive baby's skin is. I plan on using gDiapers they are not AIO's but they are not anywhere near as bulky as other cloth diapers out there and you can use the gCloth, Geffen cloth, prefolds etc in them just like every other diaper cover out there. So i dont want to sway your decision to any one system but this is a great site that gives you all the info you need to decide which type of diaper system would work well for you :) www.diaperjungle.com also check out www.realdiaperassociation.com if you would like info on gDiapers you can see reviews at walmart.com, target.com, diapers.com, amazon.com or even visit the facebook or yahoo group page for gDiapers. if you are trying to be as thrifty as possible prefolds are the cheapest option and you then just have to get covers for your diapers. getting prefolds for diapering is a must (generally not sold in stores) gerber for example they do make cloth prefold diapers but they also make cloth diapering burp cloths which are for burping so make sure you check the wording and look at reviews. also, shop around i have found so many great deals and coupons this way :) if you want some more info on gDiapers feel free to message me :)

What are you using as a diaper pail system? The big box stores really don't have anything that looks like it could work.

I love my cloth diapers! I really like the rumparooz best, but like just about everything else. If you are trying to save money then prefolds or flats and covers are the way to go, but less husband friendly. I like pocket dipaers over all in ones because if baby is a heavy wetter you can add more inserts. My favorite places to buy diapers all have a trial program, if you do not like them with in a certain amount of days you can return them for your money back. I have founnd that I love snaps because the velcro wears out after awhile. There is no brand that is best, what works best for one person might not for you, I recommend getting a couple of each brand to try and returning the ones you do not like.

We're planning on using CD as well. I can't stand the idea of pockets, but AIOs sound great. For financial reasons, we're planning flats and prefolds with covers. I've registered for a bit of each over at kellyscloset.com I picked different brands just to give people the option of variety as well as to see what works best for us.

Now, none of this is from experience. The ladies over in the cloth diapering community should be able to help you more.
