Name: Jackie
Kid(s)/Age(s): Aiden/21.5 months
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): He's in a pink Kawaii mom label with 1 bamboo insert and 1 hemp insert (poor kiddo is wearing diapers I've gotten for his baby sister lol)
Favorite diaper: Currently all about our pockets - mostly Kawaii with a few Blueberry and Alva thrown in. We mostly stuff with bamboo and hemp.
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: Wool! Well, I actually bought a couple of upcycled larges hoping they'd fit my son, but they're just a tad too tight. I have a couple of newborn on the way to try in November!
Current frustrations: Just that my son is an expert at removing our pockets with snaps (which is what we mostly have). Trying to do relaxed PTing to help with this issue. lol

Name: Amber
Kid(s)/Age(s): Mason/3 & Isaac/2
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): Buzz Lightyear underwear & a red Fuzzibunz OS
Favorite diaper: Right now I'm diggin Alvas, both the regular OS and the 4.0 double gussets
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: I want some QQ baby china-cheapies, just because they have adorable prints lol
Current frustrations: Absorption!!! Isaac is leaking through everything right now, even pockets stuffed with prefolds! I'm waiting on some charcoal bamboo inserts right now and will be ordering some bamboo inserts with my next Alva co-op order to replace all his MF.

Name: Danielle
Kid(s)/Age(s): Adam (10), Logan (6), Xander (2.5)
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): a sposie because my washer/dryer are outside, I'm alone with my youngest 2 and don't want to leave them up here alone while I retrieve diapers. I hate it and want to scream but as my mother seems to think she has a monopoly on my oldest son (who is very helpful at either getting the diapers or keeping the younger boys from getting hurt while I get them) then I really don't have a say in the matter.
Favorite diaper: My favorite is one of our Better Bums diapers that has become lost in the house somewhere Sad
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: a goodmama Smile
Current frustrations: lack of indoor washer/dryer!
Share a recent fluff pic! I don't have a recent one but I will get one. Smile

Kid(s)/Age(s): Teagan, almost 2!
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): I dunno. She's at daycare. Wink A fitted and cover, most likely.
Favorite diaper: Right now I'm loving her Blueberry Trainers. Not really diapers but still cloth awesomeness
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: Nah, I'm ready to be DONE with diapers for awhile.
Current frustrations: Not wanting to put on night time diapers.
Share a recent fluff pic! Ummmmm.... I'll see what I can dig up. She's really not wearing them much at home anymore.

Name: Wendy
Kid(s)/Age(s): Ronin, 23 months (can't bring myself to admit he is nearly 2)
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): A sposie because it's night and he is teething and gets serious urine burn to the point of bleeding in cloth overnight when teething
Favorite diaper: I like my Alvas and babyland
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: Some of the MCN style trainers
Current frustrations: Needing to wait so long to wash a load and urine burn at night
Share a recent fluff pic! I haven't got one, he is toilet training so doesn't wear nappies much

Name: Mara
Kid(s)/Age(s): Benita, 2y4m, Zintis, just shy of three months
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): Beni is naked, because she is always naked these days- although when she's not she's usually in a BG AIO or Dora underwear. Smile Zintis is in a Bummis prefold and Thirsties cover.
Favorite diaper: I just love our Bummis prefolds!!!
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: I'm kind of over it, because we already have more diapers than we need. I did get two Grovias this summer, which were probably the latest ones I was really interested in.
Current frustrations: Only not having a dryer, because air dried diapers are hard and crunchy, and it makes me sad for little baby bums. I have to rough up the prefolds before putting them on Z, otherwise its like trying to wrap him in cardboard. But thanks to Jackie's detergent recommendation, I finally have stink free diapers, which was always my big complaint/frustration.
I don't think I have any pics!!!

[INDENT] Name: Kayla
Kid(s)/Age(s): Jordan 2 years, Nora 3 months
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): Jordan is in a sposie b/c she is down for the night. Nora is in a GMD prefold and a Loveybums wool cover.
Favorite diaper: Probably BG Elemental since they fit both girls, I love the colors, they do not leak and they are so easy!
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: I've never tried flats (haven't made it to Target, Jackie). I am curious... I'm sure there are plenty of fancy AIO's that I would love but will not spend the money on.
Current frustrations: Just trying to change Jordan. She has been fighting diaper changes for so long now but she doesn't want to use the potty.

You will love wool! I had no idea how well prefolds were going to work for us but they are my most reliable diaper. I love love love our Loveybums cover so much that I want to get a medium in the same cover. She is about to bust out of the small. Makes me sad b/c it's one of my favorites!

I'm really excited to try wool! I got a couple of etsy wool newborn soakers. A local mama said she'll sell me a couple of hers in smalls and mediums after her little girl outgrows them. :mrgreen:

Wool is probably the one thing I might want to try if there was ANY possible way to justify it... but there really isn't. And given that we live in a sub-tropical climate, I'm not so sure it would be so good anyway.

Mara, I bought a newborn soaker for $10 that worked great. Plus, wool is breathable so I've always been told it still works well in the warm climates. Some wool is thicker than others too, so that plays a factor. I guess you have to factor in a little extra since you have to lanolize but a little lanolin goes a long way and wool can be washed in baby wash. I know what you mean though, it can be very expensive (assuming that is what you meant by it cannot be justified?) which is why I have bought wool used, on sale, or seconds. I know I'll be able to sell them without any problems since they've held up really well. Plus, it really is bulletproof, as they say. My kids seem to fit in the "super soaker" category so it's nice to have a cover that can keep up.

Took some "fluff" pics and finally got them off the camera!

Here's T in her Blueberry trainer that I got on clearance recently. Its a size large. These things run pretty small. She's about 26 lbs and of pretty average build for her age.

Here she is in a BubuBibi bamboo minky that I got just the other day.

Woah. Those are huge. Meh. You'll just have to deal with it because I'm feeling lazy. Wink

Kid(s)/Age(s): Lyla (almost 2), Kole (almost 5 months)
What's currently on your kiddo(s)' bottom(s): Kawaii Minky OS pocket with microfiber insert
Favorite diaper: none [Update: Pockets]
Any diapers you're curious about and wish you could try: All of them! All I have are 21 KaWaii Minkies and a few prefolds (with no covers) [Update: I think I'm good. I'm a little wool curious, but happy now that I've got some other pockets and some covers for my prefolds]
Current frustrations: Leaks, Diapers not getting clean. CDing is like getting a free puppy (There's no such thing as a free puppy, the costs keep on coming). [My wash routine is still a little ridiculous and I have to strip more often than I like]
