We have been cd-ing for 3 and 1/2 months now and by far my most favorite diaper is BumGenius One Size 3.0 http://www.bumgenius.com/. We only have 3 and use them as night time diapers. I had bought some other One Size Pockets for a good deal but they do not compare. The design is so similar I can't possibly tell you what is different about it but they leak and the BumGenius do not. I wish I could have wrapped my brain around spending $18.00 for a diaper but it for sure would have been the way to go. Brian says he likes them because they are so easy to use. I like them because they never leak. Tuli has been one for 12 hours and still no leaking.
Secondly I love my homemade fitted diapers. They fit Tuli very well and are very absorbent. I love fitted diapers because they catch the poop before it gets on the diaper cover. I always reach for my homemade fitted diapers when we go out because I know the fleece wicks the moister away and they are really absorbent so if we have lots of errands to run I am not changing diapers every few stops. I have also found that Tuli has pretty sensitive skin so if I do use a prefold I have to put a piece of fleece in the diaper to help wick away the wetness. I really need to make more but I am afraid that may not happen till after Xmas.... sigh! I have used organic bamboo batting bought at Joann Fabrics as soakers and as diapers and really like it. It is not quite as absorbent as 3 layers of bath mat terry cloth but still can soak up a lot of pee. They make the diapers much less bulky too. I think I will just stick to using the bamboo as a soaker because the fleece inside and flannel outside work great and it is much for economical, which is frankly one of the main reasons I started cd-ing
My favorite diaper cover is Thristies. They fit Tuli good and hardly ever leak (and when they do it is my fault for not getting to them sooner). I feel like them are the less bulky of the diaper covers I have tried. I have bought several used through the bargain basement at http://www.babycottonbottoms.com/ and have been so happy with them.
