I totally :hb: my goodmamas, but when it comes down to function ease of use for all of us, our BG 3.0s would probably win (although I have way more GMs than BGs) :wink:

Fitteds with wool!

When I first started, I swore I would not buy fitteds (too pricey! you have to cover them up anyway!) and I thought wool would be a pain to wash, AND too expensive.

Now they are my faves. :wink:

Soft, squishy, breathable, natural ... no scratchy velcro or "plasticy" feeling PUL. :D

I voted pockets, but fitteds are a close second. It depends on my mood I guess. If I'm looking for simplicity, pockets are great. If I am having a lazy day at home, I love fitteds :)

I've never used (or owned) anything but prefolds (when DS was a newborn) and fitteds (our entire stash now). So. I am under-informed for this poll! Maybe I would love AIO's or pockets, and I just don't know it! ;)

I'm an AI2 lover, it's the ease of a AIO without the ridiculous drying time and the versatility of a pocket without the stuffing, just snapping. But for this poll, I voted for fitted because I love those too.

Fitteds with wool!!

Leo's stash is made up of mostly Elbees, Goodmamas, Sustainable Babyish and Fluffymail at Etsy, with some Mutts and Motherease to round out the stash. We also use flats and prefolds, so CArrie you are NOT alone. I used prefolds almost exclusively with Leo for the first five months :)

I voted pockets as my BG's were my first venture into fluff and I look at them with fondness :lol:

However, my fitteds come a very close second as I wouldn't be able to use cloth at night just by using pockets alone.

I voted fitteds because the pocket fitteds really are my faves, but I love my prefolds too...I, also, used PFs exclusively for about 2 months. Also, the pockets are probably my second choice because they're so easy for babysitters! I've never tried an AIO, but I imagine I would be annoyed at how long they take to dry. I have one BG fitted, and although I absolutely love it...cute, soft, absorbent, easy to put on, it does take forever. I dry everything in my dryer and that one diaper I have to hang afterwards. Oh, well.

Right now I said AIO. However, if you asked me a few months ago I would have said fitteds. Needs change over time so my favorite changes. ;) For the newbie I plan on using mostly PF and then fitteds until she fits the AIO.

I voted pockets b/c right now I have to have something that I can get on and off DD at diaper changes quickly......she seems to grow extra arms and legs at diaper changing time, and it feel like I'm trying to change an octopus :roll:

I'd prefer fitteds, but these days she doesn't like to wait for me to get those snapped.
