PAST REVIEWS:

Plastic pants! You could probably get a product similar in quality. I only want to profess to the superiority of plastic pants and cloth diapers over disposibles. I can never go back to disposables. -- baby care (December 28/02)

I am a mother of 4 cloth diapered babies. I have always used diaper service quality prefolds with covers. My oldest is 16, youngest is just 1 year, so we started with pins (yuck) -- Judy; Davenport, Ia (Nov 18/99)

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)

In starting out with cloth diapers, I have come to a conclusion: the old fashioned pins and plastic pants are still THE BEST thing to use. The old fashioned method is a foolproof way of almost NEVER having accidents. BUT I think when baby is newborn you may want to use a Velcro® wrap. After all, newborns are up several times a night and mom is tired. 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 awfull!! 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. ANOTHER key point with cloth diapers are they need to be washed seperately from their covers. And some brands of cloth diapers end up ruined when bleach or borax are used on them. -- Diane (Oct 29/99)

I LOVE the AIO diapers. They are so convenient! -- Rachel (Oct 4/99)

And the cheapo diapers at Target are good for dolls - not real babies, lol! I started out with these and I hated them, I'm so glad I found what real diapers are all about. -- (Oct 1/99)

I also like the flannel terry prefold diapers for their absorbency, but they are also bulky. -- Mary Russell

I like all-in-ones, but have found them more difficult to clean. Fitted diapers and Alexis covers work great for me. I find that hand washing the covers makes them last a lot longer and the diapers can be soaked for better cleaning. People try to tell you what works best in cloth diapers, but I think your should sample before you buy. You have to find what works for your budget and baby. I wish that their were more resources for trading gently used items so if you get something that does not work well your can trade it for something else that might! -- April Flake

Homemade wool soakers: These are my second favorite. They have proven to be almost as reliable as the Aristocrat. Advantages - you can make them any color or pattern, adjust the fit for your baby, and they cost about $5-6 a pair to make! -- Shannon Brousseau

Flat Fold Diapers: These wear out quickly and are not very absorbent. You have to do a lot of folding to make them fit into diaper covers and are awkward to pin on. These are better used for clean-up. -- Mary Russell

Standard Prefolds: More absorbent than flat folds, but not by much. Also tend to wear out quickly. Many "tightwad" publications advocate this type of diaper used with pins, but I could not use pins after my son turned six months old because he wiggled too much for me to pin them properly. Also I found I could never pin them around the legs without gaps and whenever my son pooped (especially when he was exclusively breastfed), they leaked. Will fit into diaper covers though. For day time use only. -- Mary Russell

Terry/Flannel Diapers: Very absorbent, but bulky. I mainly use these at night with a doubler and a wool diaper cover. -- Mary Russell

Loves: 4x8x4 DSQ prefolds, Prorap diaper covers, Baby World and homemade soakers (from the Back to Basics patterns), and fitted diapers. Most diaper doublers fit perfectly inside newborn Velcro® covers. Don't waste your money on newborn diapers ... plus these are doublers for later. My favorite tip!! -- Sue Ellen Wilson

My favorite diaper are the pops, but my second favorite are plain old ordinary pin-them-yourself FLAT diapers -- folded in the origami ...Very absorbant and less bulky under clothes than a pop. -- Keppy Boone

Diaper service quality prefolds are very durable and absorbent but tend to be bulky, especially for a small baby. I really like them. -- Mary Russell

4x8x4 prefolds are great. They do leak a little more often then fitted diapers but are very absorbent. This is one of the more economical choices. -- Shannon Brousseau

I bought some diapers called the All in one diaper. The ad says the diapers do not need an insert!! UnTrue!!! These diapers leak right thru. My son always has a wet bed and his nightclothes are wet because they leak so much. We bought diaper doublers and his diapers still leak. Unless you have cloth inserts to put into the All in one Diaper do not buy these. Leak, Leak, Leak!!! -- Tanya Denton (Jul 28/99)

Love- the Kooshies Classics and Kooshies Ultra and DSQ prefolds. -- Robin Wilson (Jul 3/99)

Big rubber pants (not plastic or goretex or anything, just thick rubber) - they had soft trim, but the trim wicked moisture out - otherwise, they stayed soft for many babies (mine was about the 5th). Good investment if you don't want to pay $20-$30 for a diaper cover, or for when all your other covers are in the wash.. -- Stephanie Fehler (Jul 2/99)

Homemade fleece/flannel contours - easiest to pin, trimmest under diaper cover. -- Stephanie Fehler (Jul 2/99)

Prefolds - basic dept. store - good for newborns, I found. -- Stephanie Fehler (Jul 2/99)

Homemade prefolds (flannel/terry)- the most absorbant diapers i have found. -- Stephanie Fehler (Jul 2/99)

B. Coole Designs in California sell a cotton prefold made in Europe, identical to Chinese service diapers. Murphy Diaper System in Massachusetts sells prefolds from China. Both are excellent, just like diaper service diapers, and very reasonable. -- Wendy

DO NOT LIKE: prefolds, Rainbow diapers (the worst). -- Tina Olson

The Bummis products are really great, as well as shaped diapers. Nylon taffeta covers are very effective. -- C. Dana Evans
