Good Diapers?

I've used "traditional" cloth diapers (and disposable at night and when we go out) since my daughter was born but lately I can't get her to stay still long enough to get the diaper tight enough and get both pins in (yes, I've given her toys but she still wiggles!!). I really liked the cloth diapers and looked online but haven't been able to find any all-in-one/one size fits all that's in my budget. I know in the long run it will be cheaper but I'm in a pinch and am going to need diapers within the next few days.
I've tried Pampers, Luvs and Huggies and only liked the Pampers but it seems like they've changed their diaper or something. They don't seem to be as absorbant as they used to be and the liner on the inside seems to be smaller (doesn't go the whole length of diaper). Is it just me that's noticed this?
I want to try a different brand of diaper and was wondering what other moms use. Can anyone recommend something? Preferably something that has a really good absorbant liner that goes the whole length. I've seen them but don't remember what brand they were..
One more thing, I know some people will probably recommend the wal-mart brand but the closest one to me is over an hour away so I rarely go there. Thanks in advance ladies!!!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

I tried using the Pampers Swaddlers (purple package) and according to the weight they should have fit my daughter but she's on the small side so they're still way too big on her. I'm still looking for the wraps or other cloth diapers that are in my price range...still looking! lol Thanks to everyone who replied, you all gave me some great advice!

I use cloth diapers but I use the covers. They are awesome! They run anywhere from $8 - $30 but you can re-use them when baby is just wet and then wash them when they get soiled. I love them. I got my latest few from wai baby. Reasonably priced too.

We use Costco disposables and have had no real problems. I think I've pulled off 2 tabs as I was trying to fasten them and that's been over the past year. Nothing significant! We use Fuzzibuns pocket diapers and have been using the size medium for about a year. My daughter is now 16 months and 21/22 lbs and they still fit her fine and we're starting to potty train a little so I don't anticipate we'll need to buy anything bigger. A friend of mine loves the "mommy's touch" AIO's, but it seems to me like they leak quite a bit.

I have only tried Pampers Swaddlers and Huggies snug and dry, but I thought I would put my two cents in. :) The pampers work great, rarely ever leak. One time we got a bag of huggies because there was a really good sale, but I swear every other time we changed her the diapers had leaked! We will never do that again!

Oh my goodness, girlfriend! Pins! Oh, I was so glad when I found a good brand of diaperwrap so I never had to use another pin! Not sure if you're using rubber pants or wraps ... if wraps, the rest of this can be ignored, except the "where to get wraps that actually WORK without 'help' from pins" part ;) ... if rubber pants, this is all about the Wonder of Wraps ;). If you want to make your cloth as convenient as disposable, get about 6 (maybe 8) good wraps. About $6 each, which seems like a big chunk of change until you consider how fast disposables add up ...

However, the ones at Babies R Us and Target and suchlike are NOT worth buying(!) except as temporary solutions while you look for good ones ... the velcroes don't last long and they aren't actually waterproof. There are lots of fancy types online (for more than $6, but again, it's an investment), but if you are in a city with a diaper service, that business has a real reason to want moms to be happy with the cloth diaper experience, so they sell wraps that _work_. I got mine from Tiddee Diddee here in Portland (unfortunately you have to drive out there unless you are getting diaper-deliveries; they aren't internet-available).

[Or .. well ... you could call them and arrange to get a comforter washed in their big machine (I think it was $10 last time I checked); I think they pickup for that, and "oh by the way could I order 6 diaper covers, my baby is a skinny 18 pounds, which size do you recommend?" ;). (Not having to drive to SE 92nd and Foster is maybe worth $10 to me ... plus I'd get a comforter washed ;). I wonder if their prices have gone up because of gas ...)]

But anyhow, once you have a wrap, you just fold your diaper to be that "center liner" section (no fussy shapes or pulling out the sides for pinning) ... I keep two wraps 'active,' and never fold a diaper until I change a diaper (pull wet one off baby, put dry one on baby (same design as a disposable), let baby loose to run and play, dump wet diaper into diaper pail, fold new dry diaper, load wrap with diaper, leave dry-loaded wrap ready for next time).

[Oh, and for poops? This is specific advice for any cloth diaperers who are reading you advice because they feel like they just can't rinse another full-of-nooks-and-crannies wrap ;) ... it took me a couple of kids to figure this out. DON'T try to rinse the wrap in the toilet like a diaper: just wipe the guck off with TP. (Brilliant!, I know ;). Man, I was amazed when I realized this! )

However, it takes some technique even with the TP. Here's my technique:

I put a clean diaper on the floor next to the toilet,
open the wrap on the floordiaper,
remove and stash the poopy diaper itself in the toilet (high up, out of the water),
stand on the two flaps of the wrap with my toes,
and pull up the front of the wrap with my left hand, to pull it 'flat' for my right to wipe ...

once you get the hang of it it's fast, really ;) ...

and then I velcro shut the wrap and lay it on the floordiaper,
fold the floordiaper over it,
rinse the poopy diaper (like you always do, sigh ;) ),
and put the poopy diaper on top of the folded floordiaper ...

then I use the folded floordiaper to transport all the nasty stuff to the diaper pail ... no more carrying sopping nastiness to the diaper pail!

I know that was off-topic, but if any other cloth-diapering moms out there are reading, maybe I cut the learning curve a little shorter. If I'd only had one or two kids, I would never have known it could be easier ;). (Of course, maybe everyone else figured this all out and I'm the slow one ;). ) ]

Anyhow, cloth can be just about as easy as disposables, with good wraps.

We love Pampers Cruisers. The only time we ever have it soak through is if we waited too long for a diaper change! If you pull the ruffles of the legs out, it really helps! We've tried Huggies (they stink to high heaven when they get wet), Pampers Baby Dry (don't let the baby move well), and generic brands (all around bad idea). We finally settled on the Pampers Cruisers. My youngest is two and we've used them the whole time also with our 4 year old until he was about 3 and went to pull ups. Now, we like the Huggies Pull Ups the best for potty training. Luckily my 4 1/2 year old is completely potty trained and my 2 year old is already showing an interest! Good Luck! I hope this was a little helpful.

I know you are asking about disposables, but since you are a fan of cloth (and it is a HUGE money saver in the long run) you might consider looking into geting AIO or pocket diapers used. Between craigs list and ebay I was able to get bum genious one size diapers for over half off of retail. These diapers look brand new (and some of them are). Both people I purchased from thought they wanted to do cloth diapering and decided to go other routes so the diapers were bearly used. You can find most any brand this way, so that may be a way to allow you to fit it in your budget.

Whatever route you take, good luck!

Have you tried finding some snappi clasps instead of pins? That's what I use to hold on our prefolds and then just put the cover over it. I was given the snappis I have, but they can't be more than a couple dollars apiece and they are amazing! You might not be able to get them in the next couple of days, but I highly recommend them and if you end up hating them (which I can't really imagine, but still) then you're only out a few dollars.

I can't recommend any disposables, but I can recommend some cloth diapers that I've really liked and that have velcro, so it's easier. The 2 brands that I've really liked are Prorap (I think that's the spelling) and Polar Babies. The Prorap are easy and light weight. With the velcro, you don't need to pin the diapers. The Polar Babies are made of polar fleece, have a snap and velcro attachment so you don't need to pin the diapers either. They also make a very absorbent hemp pre-fold diaper. They are kinda spendy, though. The Prorap covers you can find online for as little as $4.50 each. Also, have you tried finding used diapers and diaper covers at consignment stores or on craig's list? Both of those have been a big help for me.
And yes, I remember that super squirmy stage when the kids will not keep still for diapers--and it does pass (only to come again when they're big enough to run away and laugh "escape!" while avoiding diapering). But I've had 2 that have been cloth diapers (one is still in them at 2 years old), and I found it worth it.
Good luck!

T.,
My mom was a purist from the old school when she had my brothers and I.(I'm 29 and have an older brother)
She had my littler brother when I was 11 and stayed with her purist ways of cloth but disliked what they had on the market and knew that with an 11 and 13 year old helping out with diaper duty pins were probably not going to go well with the baby. So the seamstress in her came out and she made her own. She made the diaper with velcro and a special fabric used to make bibs on the outside for leaks. Then she made the liners seperate so she could make them as long or as short as she wanted. They were all flannel and very cozy for baby. And quite usable for us.
So if you have a sewer in your life, design your own!
Good luck!

And what's probably happening is as your girl grows older she carries more pee and #2 so she's most likely just going more. It scared me when my little one pooped atleast two times a day but changing foods can cause that but it's not bad just her body is adjusting.

I use cloth diapers as well but have never even attempted to pin them, I'm sure I would get frustrated. I use Velcro diaper covers. You can often find them used on Craigslist or at some kids resale stores. I like the brand prorap and purchased some new at www.thanksmama.com. They are only $6.99 each with free shipping for diaper covers which means you can get two for the price of one package of diapers and as mentioned by another poster you can let the wet ones air dry and reuse them and wash the soiled ones. There are also a lot of patterns available online for diaper covers if you know how to sew.

I know you've got a lot of responses already, and I don't have time to read thru and see if anyone else has reccommended this but...I went thru the same thing with my son who is now 14mo. Two things I reccommend, one try sticky velcro. It's cheap and you can buy it anywwhere. What I did was wait until my son was alseep so he would be super still. Then I put a diaper on like I normally would but didn't pin it, instead you can gauge where exactly the velcro should go. Once you get one diaper just right you can do others from that one. You just have to remember to close the velcro when you wash them. Also, I reccommend wool covers. They work great as long as they fit right and you can either buy they cheap on ebay from SAHM's or you can make them yourself from old sweaters. At first I thought the idea of making my own was crazy, but after I purchased a couple different styles on ebay I realized it wouldn't be hard at all. Their great for night time too. I know you said you do disposable at night and when you go out, but I've found that just doubling a cloth diaper at night (taking one prefold and folding it in thirds and the placing inside another prefold) and then using a wool cover works great! Cloth is best for baby and the environment and wool is as natural as it gets when it comes to covers. Plus, using the velcro make it almost as easy as a disposable. If you're intrested in making your own wool covers but need some tips, let me know I'd be happy to help with a pattern. Also you should check out this website, it has all the info you'll need to know why disposable are soooo bad! Especially huggies and pampers. I couldn't believe it when I came across this so I had to verify, and it's all true. I'm having a hard time finding the specific article I was talking about (it was my favorite on the subject) but here are a couple other good ones that have the same general meassage.

Pins? Get some Snappis. They stretch across the from of the diaper and grab on with little "teeth". You can find them online at most any store that sells cloth diapers (cottonbabies.com, bananapeelsdiapers.com). But like some other moms suggested if you have a good wrap, such as Prowrap, Thirsties, or Bummis you don't even have to use Snappis. You can just lay the cloth diaper in the wrap then put onto baby. And the wraps are great because if they haven't been soiled with a bm, they can just be wiped out with a damp cloth or baby wipe (unless it is really wet) and set out to dry until the next diaper change. Easy!

Pampers and Huggies have both changed, and both of their "standard" diapers are not all that great anymore. Try the Pampers Cruisers, or the Huggies Supreme. If you want super absorbent, especially for nights, try Huggies Overnights. If you want to keep using cloth diapers, then try a velcro cover for them so you don't have to bother with pin. The liners will probably cost about the same as a package of diaper, but you use it over and over. I used them once upon a time for another reason, but they worker fairly well. If you really want to save money on them, you can buy them on ebay or some other resale site. Just be sure they are not nasty first.

I recently posted here about my 7 month old daughter soaking through her cloth diapers at night. Several people recommended checking out Zoom Baby Gear in N. Portland (not far from my house at all). I spoke with the owner and she was SUPER helpful. I ended up getting 3 hemp doublers and 1 wool soaker. Not only is the diaper significantly less bulky, she hasn't leaked through once. I have also begun using fleece liners (against her skin). When she poops is comes right off the liner and the diaper is barely dirty. No stains or anything! I'm thoroughly impressed. Zoom Baby Gear has all the major brands, but she makes and sells her own wool soakers for an extremely reasonable $17! Her feeling is that everyone should be able to afford the wool. I would highly recommend visiting her website and calling her if need be.

I usually get the huggies from costco. Pampers seemed to have a little too much plastic and did not breath as well. My boys would get heat rashes in their little bums everytime I used them. When I tried cloth years ago, there was this holder that I used to not have to use pins called Cooshies (i Think. they came in several sizes and you just fold up the diaper and place it in. It velcroed on just like a disposable. At night I would just double up on the diaper. Maybe having something like that would make it easier to keep the cloth. I wished I had been able to stay on cloth with my kids, but it was had with daycare and stuff would not take them.

I witched my son (2) about 4 months ago to cloth. I use an all in one that I got from a SAHM who makes them. I love them and they are great. They are a little spendy, but the ones I got are one size so I can use them for the next child.
There are also these things that hold the prefolds in place like the pins, but are way easier to put on (so i have heard I have never used them). Here is a site to them.

If you like cloth diapers why not stick with them.
If you want to chat more about the AIO's I got you can send me a message.
Good luck!

Have you tried diaper grabbers they are like a giant letter "Y" they hook to both sides of the diaper and then the middle and they hold the cloth just like pins but are a lot faster. If you look an e-bay or lots of the diaper sites they sale them there. I used them with my twins I cloth diaped and they were a lifesaver. Good luck to you .

I used cloth diapers with a fleece cover that had velcro, so I didn't need pins - I just relied on the cover, which worked quite well. Now, if I could just remember the name of those great fleece covers....
