I also have the Gerber DSQ prefolds that are absolutely wonderful. They are very absorbent and stand up well to the abuses I subject them to, with washing and drying. You can't beat the price!
-- morning glory (Mar 28/00)

I absolutely ADORE the Chinese cotton prefolds I bought from Earthbaby!! Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about them. My first cloth diapers were just those awful non-Diaper-Service-Quality diapers. Then I tried some from a homeschooling catalog that were SO much better. I guess they were Gerber DSQ because some of them were stamped Gerber. They had the color-coded stitching, and were thicker and more absorbent than the regular diapers. By baby #3 some of them were starting to get pretty worn out, so I decided to replace a few with Chinese cotton prefolds to see what all the excitement was about. My husband talked me into getting 12 rather than 6. I'm really glad he did!! They are even better than the Gerbers!!! I love them so much that I ended up getting another dozen to replace the Gerbers that WEREN'T worn out!! Do try them!!

I love Gerber heavy duty prefolds. They hold up the best in the long run.
-- anonymous (Feb 9/00)

I've had pretty good success with Gerber newborn sized DSQ prefolds. I've used them with a combination of Dappi, Prowrap and Diaperap covers and so far so good! I'm new at this, but using the prefolds and Velcro® covers has been pretty hassle-free and I'm happy enough so far.
-- Amelia W. (Dec 13/99)

I use the Proraps covers and the Gerber and Chinese prefolds. I like the Gerbers better because they seem more absorbent to me, but both are fine. I was able to buy the Gerber diapers retail for $11 for 6. The Proraps are the greatest. Nice leg gussets, Velcro® holds up and not much leakage out of the cover (unless my husband diapers her). So far I have been using the Prorap colors, I just bought the Classics and Basics so I will let you know. Cost-wise, Proservices will sell seconds -- call and ask. Only $3.00 each.
-- Amy Weinheimer (Dec 11/99)

I like Diaper Service diapers - flat prefolds - Gerber or Proservice. Diaper pins get fast with practice! Prowraps are wonderful, and I really love the quality and value of the Zippidy coverups! A better value can't be found!
-- Lisa Durand (Nov 1/99)

I have found that on BOTH my children the GERBER Velcro® wrap works the best. It does not slip off, it holds the wet in, the diaper does not slip down. The Bumkins newborn diaper cover was awful!! My daughter would slip right out of it, and she was a normal sized baby. The diaper would bunch up and slip down. Some brands of diapers which worked VERY WELL with both methods: plastic pants and GERBER Velcro® diaper covers are the pinnable Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby and the Snuggle Ups with out the Velcro® from Simple Alternatives.
-- Diane (Oct 29/99)

I have just started using cloth, and am using the Gerber DSQ that BabyJ recommended. They are working great for me! I use them along with the Bumkins wrap cover and I love them! I haven't had one leak -- even overnight and with diarrhea! I also use the Kushies flushable liners because you can toss them in the toilet if they are soiled. If they are just wet on, you can actually wash them and lay then out to dry and re-use them, something I find to be very cost-effective. I plan to try the Bumkins all in one next, and can't wait. I will keep using the pre-folds as my foundation, though.
-- Kelly Roberts, Ocala, FL (Oct 13/99)

Gerber Diaper Service Quality diapers paired up with Dappi covers work wonderfully for my DS. I just pin the diaper first and then make sure to tuck all of the diaper into the Dappi cover and haven't had a leak yet!!! We love our Gerber DSQ diapers. Do not recommend the Gerber Birdseye weave diapers -- way to thin to use as a diaper, but they work great as a doubler placed inside the Gerber DSQ diaper for overnight or long trips.
-- Melanie (Sept 30/99)

Gerber Prefolds -- My rule of warning is: Not all Gerber prefolds are created equal! I bought some from Mommy's Little Helper and these were nice and thick. Then, I bought some off of an auction -- supposedly DSQ -- but VERY thin! Be careful what you buy. Overall, it's a nice diaper for a non-mobile baby. Once my daughter started moving, so did her diaper!
-- Sinead's Mama (Aug 25/99)

I like the plain prefolds by Gerber. They are very absorbant and seem to last. I just pin them on and use a plain plastic pull on pant.
-- Lena (Jul 12/99)

I've used Gerber diapers from Wal-Mart (not worth buying), prefolds from K-Mart (worse than Wal-mart's), Gerber AIO (leaks terribly), Gerber covers (Velcro® is great!!!!) I got mine used and they are still going strong.
The Dappi wraps are alright, but the Dappi Lites are awful. I've used them for 2 weeks and the Velcro® is shot. I like the Gerber DSQ diapers, amazingly thicker than what Wal-Mart sells. I love the Bumkins Velcro® cover.
I suppose that is all I've tried so far. Give me a little more time, and I'll have tried everything out. (I have an 18 month old heavy-wetting daughter and a son on the way) With my daughter we put 2 cloth liners in her disposable Huggies™ at night to get it more absorbent.
-- Victoria Gabhart

As for diapers, I purchased Gerber brand Diaper Service Quality regular sized diapers 16 months ago. They are excellent!!! I've never been disappointed. Some friends of mine have had their "comparable" diapers for less time, and they are all falling apart or the middle sections are balling up (yuck). My DSQ's are in such good shape I will probably be able to use them not only through my 2nd, but even my 3rd or 4th child! They aren't even frayed after continual use for almost a year and a half.
-- Cathleen Oldenburg

I love my Gerber DSQ 4-8-4 prefolds. After the first day or two of getting used to what I was doing, I haven't had any leaks. At night I use a doubler, and even after 12 hour nights I haven't had one wet morning.
-- Jessie Davenport

Gerber DSQ 4x6x4 and 4x8x4 prefolds work well. I only use them (with a doubler) at night.
-- Linda Peirce

I love the diaper service quality trifold diapers (with blue thread) available from Biobottoms, Natural Baby Company, and Walmart stores. I think they're made by the Gerber company. The diapers are very thick, absorbent and well-made. I also prefer nylon pull-on covers.
-- Debra Goodman

Proservice Super 4x8x4 prefolds are nice. I have Gerber DSQ's also and I like them equally as well. The Pro's are a bit bigger and softer and the Gerber's are of a stiffer material and a bit smaller but I am able to pin these easier and have not noticed them shrinking anymore as the Pro's seem to do.
-- Kellie Varner

Gerber 4x8x4 DSQ prefolds. I have 2 dozen of the 4x8x4 Gerber prefolds and really like them. They've quilted up nicely and are holding up well; they are now over a year old. They have no real signs of wear and have not shrunk much at all.
-- Laura Bouslaugh

Hates: Dappi covers, flimsy Gerber gauze prefolds (don't waste money on these)
-- Sue Ellen Wilson
