I picked fitteds. I don't think I'd be big on AIOs for their drying time, and some's non-ability to add more stuffing. I used to like pockets a lot, and I still have some, but my twins were getting red from the microsuede in BGs. I do not think fitteds are any harder to put on at all, but my kids are usually pretty good about letting me change diapers (well, Evann's starting to say OW the whole time, but mostly he's okay). I like PFs too, but not for when out and about.

AIO's and fitteds. I can't pick one. My stash is made up of PC's, Gro-Baby's, and BG Organics.

I picked fitteds but I really do love the simplicity of a flat folded into a cover.

All of them depending on the child (both kids have different needs) and also depending on how lazy I am or how long I will be out, etc.

I'm not a fan of pockets. Why stuff a diaper, when you can just lay a flat inside a cover? It stays in place perfectly. Pockets really seem so unnessary to me.

I like pockets because they keep DS's skin dry. As long as you strip them pretty regularly, there isn't any trouble with stink, in my experience. I like fitteds too, but they feel so bulky sometimes. I use a trifolded prefold in a cover, too. Super easy, super quick!

I'm actually thinking of trying the Flip system too...guess we'll see!

I can't pick any ... I have never used fitteds so I have no idea about those. Honestly I'd say I like AIOs and flats the best, with prefolds a close second. The AIOs for night, the flats for the day. I have a few pockets too.

I started out with pockets only and I thought there were great. I didn't mind stuffing and the BGOS were most like disposibles so were great for DH and grandparents.

Then I discovered the fitted love. And hvae never looked back. I can't believe I spent all that time and energy buying different pockets when I could have been buying fitteds! I have mostly PC's and The Raven Tree and they are the most absorbant fluff I have tried. DD can out pee at BGOS (even boosted with hemp) in 2 hours but can wear a PC for 4 and its barely damp on the outside.
