My name is Kimberly, I've been cding my second son since he was 7 months old, now i wish I'd started with my first son. oh well, some learn late.
24 factory seconds premium prefolds 4X8X4
3 thirsties duo wraps
10 Kushies ultra AIO (don't use these!!!) they were a gift
18 coolababy pockets (love these)
6 gerber pull on covers (for emergency use only, lol, i hate these)
2 homemade wool soaker longies
2 homemade wool wraps
*currently in the process of making more wool covers
I really enjoy prefold and covers for my diaper system, their simple to clean and dry quickly, well except for the wool covers, lol. I wash all my covers by hand and hang to dry, this way they last longer and don't shrink.
My dipes I will wash hot/cold cycle with soapnuts and a touch of baking soda in the wash cycle. If I am in a hurry I will pour some vinigar in the rinse and then dry all in the dryer or line dry if it is sunny out. If I am not in a hurry I will follow my hot/cold cycle with a cold/cold cycle and add vinigar in the cold/cold to kill bacteria. I don't feel the second cycle is completely necessary but it does help to further work out stains left behind. Unfortunately I can't always line dry, which is the best stain remover.
While I do like my thirsties covers I prefer wool, so much softer. Currently I am in the process of making several wool covers so that I don't have to use my thirsties covers. I use his longies when we go to bed, we cosleep, and even before I lanolized them they lasted all night and weren't hardly damp on the inside the next day, and were completely dry on the outside.
I love caring for my babies in the most natural ways I can, although I won't go so far as washing his diapers by hand, I'm not that eco-friendly yet.
I recently purchased 18 coolababy pockets from ds, I love these and now use them exclusively. No leaks, and the momma who sold them to me added a hip snap to prevent wing droop. They fit beautifully on my now 10 month old son. If you're looking for a cheap pocket diaper that works great I definately recommend coolababy's. Just $5 each just about anywhere. Come in many bright colors too.
