I have been using cloth diapers for a couple months now. I wish I would have started from the get go.
I currently have:
14 ebay cheapies one size pockets
4 bumGenius one size velcro pockts
1 Fuzzibunz pocket size medium
6 old school Kooshies AIOs (they are from the 80's lol)
40 or so prefolds various brands and sizes
6 receiving blankets
50 contour inserts/ diapers
1 Bummis cover white
1 Green Eden cover white
5 bio bottoms wool covers size 27-32 lbs
1 bio bottoms wool cover size 32-45 lbs
3 Gerber pull on vinyl pants
3 Dappi size medium diaper covers
My favorite is bumGenius by far but they are pricey. I love my Fuzzibunz (I got it used for free
) I mainly use prefolds or flats with covers. My favorite covers by far are the Gerber pull on vinyl pants, they aren't cute but they hold like nothing else and if they get poo in them I just have to rinse. I like my Bummis and Green Eden covers but I have to wash them more often. The Green Eden is wipeable where the Bummis is not. The Biobottoms covers work really well but they don't fit very well (too big for my son). I really don't like the ebay diapers but use them for emergencies (with contour diaper as extra insert) and without an insert for swim diapers. I tend to just use prefolds with pins or snappi (just bought the snappi a couple days ago, love it!) I use smaller prefolds or contour diapers as inserts and they work great. I use the kite and origami folds for my flat diapers (just discovered origami and prefer it) I use the small prefolds or contours as inserts with these as well.
For washing I have a pail with a wetbag liner from Mother Eden (it leaks bad) I don't have a diaper sprayer but recently discovered that the shower head reaches the toilet. I will use this until I can convince my dad to make me a sprayer. I currently use Ecos detergent but want to switch to Soap Nuts or Charlies when I get some money. I do a cold rinse cycle no soap then do a warm wash (no hot option) with soap. I then hang all PUL and vinyl items and put the rest in the dryer. I sometimes use vinegar in the wash to help with smells. I don't have a way to hang dry my diapers outside so I have some stains. I really love cloth diapering and so does Marcellus. He tries to rip off sposies when he has them on and never gets a rash with cloth. I am currently packing for a weekend long trip, I will let you know how that goes.

That's all I have pics for now. I will post more soon in the chat thread
