So far so good...deciding what you like and don't like as far as style of diaper is fairly easy. The prefolds are our least favorite. I really like the fitteds with a cover over top they seem to be the slimmest and then we are also going to use the pocket and all in one styles. Probably those two more for nighttime and they can be a bit bulky. It really is way easier than I thought it was going to be. I just needed to buy that one diaper and actually get started. I just ordered a ton more today at She is a Michigan mom who makes them, I found her through Hopscotch one of the stores I sell Petunias stuff through. I have really liked her product, just from touch and see comparisons in the store and now using them a few times for ourselves. NOW comes the fun part. I am getting some custom covers done in fun fabrics (I needed that, who wants plain old boring when I can use some of my fabric stash and get it made into custom covers : ) ) And we also need to try out and decide on some of the different fabrics that are out there for the main diaper parts. There is suedecloth and fleece in the all in ones and pockets. We have a suedecloth pocket which seems fine but I ordered a fleece one to try out. And in the fitted there is cotton, hemp and bamboo. We have a hemp one that seems great, it and bamboo are supposed to be VERY absorbent so we are trying a few more hemp ones from a different company that I ordered from as well today. Then we also have to decide if we like snaps, velcro (aplix) or no closure (use a snappi). I think velcro is going to be my choice because it is so adjustable but the hemp one we have in snaps and I ordered another snap one today just to try out ; ) SO that's the new for now. I'll get back to you when I know or have more info. ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE UP FOR TRYING THIS OUT WITH ME???
