Prefolds and My Cloth Diapering System
Since starting to cloth diaper almost a year ago, Bumgenius 4.0 and the Blueberry Pocket diapers have been my favorite. They cost around $18-$20 a piece if you buy them brand new but they are so convenient because you just stuff and go. You treat them just like disposables, a one time use before washing. I finally figured out a system that works well for us at night. I bought four hemp inserts (these from Amazon) and they are amazing. I double those with a microfiber liner in one of the pocket diapers and I swear some mornings Rhett's diaper weighs more than he does but he is still dry as can be!

I now have enough diapers to go three days in between washes. Which is about perfect for us. I am still debating taking prefolds on vacation with us because I am worried about Rhett's skin with using disposable wipes and diapers all week, I haven't made up my mind yet. I am a little different than other people who cloth diaper (I think) because I didn't really choose to do it, but I couldn't stand how red and raw Rhett's bottom was when we used disposables, so it was an easy choice for me, and now that we have a good system I love it.
