We're going back to cloth. Surprised? I did really like the 7th Generation diapers. I liked them much better than any other disposables I used. HOWEVER, after a couple bouts of stomach flu and loose stools, I'm longing for cloth again. Nothing keeps poop in as well as a cotton diaper, whether a pinned or snappied prefold or a fitted diaper (definitely the best performer!), and a well fitting separate cover. I'm disgusted at all the money I wasted on buying pocket diapers. They may have been easier to use, but they were harder to get clean, did not hold up well at all and weren't as leak proof as separate diaper and cover systems. Once I saw that Bummis was coming out with a cover that fixed the problems I'd had with their previous versions, I knew we'd be going back to cloth. So I'll be getting new covers and Snappis and using our old threadbare and holey prefolds until I save up enough money to consider new prefolds or fitted diapers.
