It depends how tight ur budget is vs. how important trim diapers are.

Whenever ur making ur cloth diaper purchasing decisions, its important to remember what ur goals are - and keeping ur budget in mind in light of that. Otherwise its like asking if u want leather seats in ur car when car shopping. Well, of course I want leather seats. Ok, can u afford leather seats? That's a different question.

So, I would encourage u to think about these things - there may be more, but none comke to mind right now:
1)what's ur budget?
2)how important is trimness?
3)how often do u wanna wash?
4)how frustrating will it be for u to have to size up and buy a new stash after ur babe grows out?

I used 36 infant prefolds and 6 thirsties duo size 1's and was totally happy. Washed every 2 to 2.5 days.
