My favorite system so far is GMD workhorses with a wool cover, my SIL made us a few. I also really like the Swaddlebees Simplex newborn AIOs but they are too expensive. I liked the Lil Joey AIOs at first but he quickly outgrew the absorbency. Prefolds haven't worked out for us so far, he's leaked out of them every time I tried. I'll try again once he's bigger or experiment with different covers. I have a Thirsties Duo and a Bummis Super Brite cover that I like but they are still a little too big for him. MH does all of the diaper laundry and he says that we need to order a few more so we can make it two days between washes. We have 12 workhorses and 4 AIOs that we like to use, plus 3 more AIOs and a bunch of prefolds that we use if everything else is in the wash.
We visited my in-laws last weekend and used disposables the whole time we were there, so for about 36 hours. I didn't find it to be any easier than cloth, and not nearly as cute! My son's big cloth diaper but makes my heart melt. I can't wait to buy more fluff!
We weren't sure we were going to fully commit to CDing, so we started out with some Rumparooz (Snap), AIO BumGenius, BumGenius 4.0, and Fuzzibunz. We loved it, and like laurenann said, don't find disposables any easier. We decided to stick with it and just purchased some more Rumparooz (APLIX and Snap), BumGenius (4.0 and AIOs) and are trying the Blueberrys.
So far the Rumparooz have been our favorite and seem to fit M's skinny legs fairly well. The BunGenius have been really absorbent and are easy to use. Our least favorite have been the Fuzzibunz because they are more difficult and time consuming to work with. The liners are harder to put in and the sides are more difficult to adjust.
mandy_marie:I wanted to start CDing soon, but I tried them on her, and she's still swimming in most of them I didn't want to invest in NB diapers. nbsp;Plus, how are you all handling the ohsofrequent soiled diapers?? nbsp;I don't think I would have enough cloth diapers to get through a day right now. nbsp;
My baby is still too small for our Bumgenius pockets! I didn't want to buy newborn sized. I hope they'll fit next week. We also have some prefolds and Flip covers.
For those who have used them, the BGs don't have side gussets. How are they at containing poop?

We have never had a poop issue in any of our BGs. They seem to contain it pretty well.
I have for. My nb stash: kissaluv size o, swaddlebees fitteds, gmd orange workhorse, gmd prefolds, bg xs, and some wham.
i semi hate prefolds. I can never get it tight enough because he s so wiggly, screaming, and legs are super skinny. I can trifold it and that seems to work but. Afraid of poop explosion which would only get on the cover not a huge deal. I will keep trying the angel wing fold and jellyroll. Hopefully he will not always hate diaper changes.
i plan on stuffing my pockets with the prefolds.
the workhorse work really well. I also have the snap version and can see why the got rid of it.
I use the klo at night along with the swaddlebees in case he gives. Us a good stretch of sleep. I haven't tried the bg yet but will today.
I have only this thirsties covers. Both duo and xsmall. I like the xsmall has it doesn't have as much bulk. Duo is okay but get a better fit with the xsmall.
Overall I really like it. I too love the big fluffy bum.
