Fitted vs aio

I am just getting started in the cloth thing. May I ask what works best for people with a 2-3 month old. I coupon and have gotten free disposables to last me to the point but need to start planning for when my stash runs out

This site has tons of information it's just hard to sift through it all... I am getting overwhelmed.

Fitteds need covers, all-in-ones do not. When my baby was 2-3 months I liked fitteds or prefolds with covers the best.

Re: Fitted vs aio

You can always just fold the prefold into thirds and lay in the cover. I did that with my LO. it is very easy. When the baby is young most people like prefolds. A fitted is kind of overkill because they are not very heavy wetters at that point and they get changed so often. Pockets are very popular and after trying EVERYTHING I came back to BG 4.0's. They are one size so they will work at 3 months on to potty learning. The great thing about pockets is that you can change what you stuff them with as your babies needs change. I used to just put a prefold in or the microfiber inserts that they came with. Now that my ds is 1 and sleeps 14 hours at night I need more absorbancy. I use a Thirsties Hemp prefold. Hemp and bamboo are more absorbant then cotton or microfiber. I can even add an extra booster if I need to. Hope that helps a little.

Re: Fitted vs aio

So far, with my 3 month old...pockets work best....but I do like prefolds w/ covers and just got a few AIO's (Blueberry Basix) that I really like. Still...different brands fit better than others for us....every child is different!
