Cloth diapers...

When my son was younger I made some cloth diapers for him and we did that for a while, I have started to do cloth with our baby girl and it's going ok, I need to get some already made pocket diapers cause I think this is the kind we want to go with. I got a few off brand ones just to see if I liked them....for cloth diaper moms, which ones are your favorites? I know there are a lot of name brand ones that are way beyond my budget, what others do you prefer?

    I prefer Kawaii's. (theluvyourbaby.com). They are more affordable than the big brands. And my sister bought the big brands 5 years ago when we bought these and is in the process of replacing them. Mine don't need replaced.

    I know I checked them out on that website... I think that's one of the sites that shipping is SO expensive on but I can't remember. I may have to break down and try them though. I ordered a few of the Alva brand today so we will see if I like them. I thought about trying the econobum with the prefolds but I think it would hold the wet on her skin too much. I like the pocket ones so far because of how dry her skin is when I change her. It's helped her rash go away too, which is one of my main reasons for switching. I'm not so concerned with leaks (the child leaks through everything, even disposables) lol its crazy how expensive some of them are...I would never pay the price for them...I just couldnt.

    Prefolds are nice when they are newborn because their butts are so little! But you do have to change them more.
    Go to a fabric store and get a couple yards of fleece then cut it to the size of the diapers and put between her skin and the diaper. Fleece pulls the water off the skin. Then you could use the prefolds a bit longer. A couple yards should give you enough for about 18 diapers. I have to buy more prefolds if we get pregnant again because my gerbers got holes in them.
    Have you tried diaper exchange pages on Facebook? I got my first batch of diapers that way and they were fairly cheap. In the city near us there's a maternity shop that does a second hand diaper sale every 6 months or so-maybe there's something like that close to you?
    Something else I have sitting around (my sister used to make diapers). Is the fancy clothes men use on their cars to dry them off so it doesn't scratch them (I can't remember the name), but it's basically the diaper inserts. Fold them in thirds and gives you another insert and more absorbency for nights or nap time.
    With Eva I had to use baby powder on her for the first 6 months or so because she leaked through everything-including the cloth. If I didn't,she'd be back in disposables from a yeast infection.
