    Default I've entered the Dark Side...

    I have a huge stash of cloth diapers. I need a support group. Haha. I don't have even half of what my friends have but I'm still feeling incredibly guilty at the moment.

    Must.Stop.Buying.Cloth.Diapers!!!!!!

    Anyone sharing my pain?

    I was excited about pockets, but both of my cloth diapering friends say they hated them, so I steered away from that and got lots of AIOs.

    I think it's good you got one to try it out though Then you can decide for yourself.. AIO's are easier though!

    There is plenty of room for more dipes! (SOrry I will stop enabling now!)

    We used mostly BumGenuis dipes for Sam. We had both pockets and AIO's. I loved the AIO's for daddy and friends to use but they took so long to dry (we didn't have a dryer). I used some prefolds, but ended up using the prefolds mostly to stuff the pockets with!

    Later on I used fitteds with covers and loved it. These were great when he was older and a heavy wetter. I still have these stored, but they are mediums and larges.

    We plan to buy once we know this little man's size. The bumgenius dipes didn't fit well until Sam was over 9 pounds.

    I am thinking about getting some kissaluv fitteds and covers to get through the little stage.

    PICTURES!!! Sounds like a great stash to get you going, though if you think you're gonna need nb, you might need a few nb covers. I hear they can start using the OS size stuff around 10-12 lbs. You have a nice sampling of different types though, so you can see what you like and what you don't like. Also, take those prefolds. IMO, you can never have too many prefolds because they can be used as stuffers as well.

    My stash is totally out of control, lol. I'm going to try to remember off hand, but can edit when I get home. I skipped NB sizes because my family tends to make big ol babies and I won't start until her cord falls off anyway. I have I think:

    15 or so OS pockets (mix of BGs, FBs, Alvababys, and one Sunbaby),
    one set of yellow edge and one set of brown edge prefolds from green mountain diapers
    4 sm Thirsties covers
    3 or 4 medium Thirsties covers
    1 or 2 larges Thirsties covers
    3 good mamas OS fitteds
    5 or 6 misc fitteds from a WAHM in large and XL
    2 Thirsties large fitteds
    4 OS covers from Blueberry
    1 small wool soaker from Aristocrats
    2 med/l fleece soakers from a WAHM
    tons and tons of inserts in all fabrics!

    I have so many pockets and wish I had more fitteds.

    Also, MIL learned to make wool soakers, so I know I'll be OVERLOADED on those quickly, lol.

    I like pockets and they're really daddy friendly too. I steer clear of AIOs because I feel like I get the same functionality in a pocket except I can customize the absorbancy, I think it's easier to get them clean, and they definitely dry faster.
