The feeling I get is that most moms find something that works for them - you really just have to try a few out! If you buy them gently used, it won't cost as much. OR, you can "test-drive" a few from website - www.peekaboobottoms.com

Personally, I only like two kinds (And I've tried LOTS). Apple Cheeks during the day (because they are cute and organic). And, my new love - I have recently picked up a FLIP diaper (made by Bum Genius) and LOVE IT. It's very trim for under jeans. It is also VERY absorbent for over night! Both companies are AMAZING!

I'm not familiar with b n b rainbow diapers. What kind are those? What I can tell you regarding choosing the best modern cloth diapers is that it depends on what type of diaper you want first. For example, if you want a prefold diaper, I agree with the other poster that Clotheez is best. However, if you're looking for an All In One diaper - then I love a good Bum Genius 3.0. The options are endless on this one. Not knowing what a b n b rainbow diaper is I can't really offer you a suggestion on that.

I would say -
1. first start with how much you want to spend
2. then choose the type of diaper you want (i.e. pocket, prefold, etc.)
3. then the type of material that you want (i.e. some babies are very sensitive and so you'll want to stay away from synthetic materials like PUL or fleece).

Narrowing those down I can give you a better idea of what type of diaper and brand would be best.

In the meantime. I recommend some light reading to narrow down those options. Check out these materials.

I love the bum genius. I've tried other brands of pocket diapers - haute pockets, mommy's touch easy clean and others but I definately prefer my bum genius!!!!

I really love Cloth-ezz prefolds w/ a cover like bummis ect.. I have tryed Happy Heineys and Kissaluvs and the prefolds seem to clean so much better and they don't stink as much either.

I also love the bumGenius diapers! I have several different kinds of CD's and they are by far my favorite!

Definately check out GroBaby...I am so happy with my decision and I'm a first time cloth diapering mama. They aren't the most inexpensive, but I feel the inexpensive ones are the ones that probably leak the most. These don't leak unless I make a mistake. Sign up for their newsletter to get the info on specials. I got everything I need to full time cloth diaper and do laundry every 2-3 days for $318 plus shipping with a cyber Monday deal. Otherwise I think the regular price is $380 for the big package.

I love my bum genius 3.0. They have been on my DD for 17 of her 18 months (I did not try cloth until she was 1 month old). We have never had a leak or any other real issues. At the 1 year mark we did have some issues with nighttime wetness. We just added one more large insert. Also, the velcro does tend to wear out a bit but if you buy from the manufactuer (cotton babies) they will send you new ones if you complain with a year.

For my second we could not afford to buy more bum genius, so I tried my hand at making them. So far I love as much as the bum genius the pocket diapers I made with the the little comet tail one size. I made them with PUL, microfleece, bamboo and zorb inserts with snaps from Kam Snaps (got the snap pliers too). I found making 12 diapers cost us about $100 compared to the over $200 we paid for already made diapers.

If you sew and have time it might be a good investment since you can share some of the costs with your sister.
