I am making the venture over to cloth diapering this summer. I am really excited but am a little confused about the different brands. I know that bum genius is one of the top brands to use but I have also read about kiss a luvs and Dappi diapers. Has anyone used those and how did they work for you? They are much cheaper by the dozen than the other brands and since I have twin girls, I am looking for the best bargain!

What can I do next?

Hi S.,

I used kisssaluvs with my son for the first 8 months and they were really annoying and they leaked alot and he always smelled :) Then I switched to bummis with the inserts and I love them so much. Go to papaya patch and ask them when they are having a diaper exchange. People sell their used diapers there at 1/2 the price or even less. Also my friend orders from they are insert diapers custom made and are only $10... they are so great and really cute you can choose all of your own colors and fabrics... I'm going to get them for my next baby.

Good Luck, Allie

Have you been to Papaya Patch in West Hartford Center? They are a great resource as they have the actual diapers there for you to see and touch instead of just purchasing from the internet. They also offer diapering classes. Prefolds with a cover most likely will be the most cost effective.
I haven't had the chance to use them yet, but here are a couple of websites I like.

Hey S.,

I use G Diapers, I LOVE them,

they are great,

I use a perfold insert, and not the flushable,
so far its been nearly 2 years and never had any problems
no need to buy any extra inserts either.

but they fit really well and are so easy to clean, and they look really KEWL.

I do every once in a while buy the flushies for traveling and things, ( I mean who wants to smell a stinking diaper in the car for 4-5 hours)and carry it around with you for the weekend--- LOL----it makes it easier.

What i normally do is keep a few plasticbags from the grocery store in the car an put the poopys and other garbage in there til I get home,

Since I say at home, I just dump the poops right in the toilet, and flush, swish the poopy prefold around in the bowl
and throw it in a soap bucket i have in the bathroom,

every other day I toss them in the machine

The poops do stain the liners and prefolds, but a little creamy clorox bleach get the stains right out and vinegar freshens them up.

I am so glad I switched to cloth diapers,

the way I look at it you wipe the poop off their bums, whats one extra step.
