your favorite diapers/covers

i am new to cloth diapering and so far have used only flats and dappi and thirsties covers. but i am interested in buying more, maybe something more comfortable. would you guys recommend wool? fleece? i want something that wont leak but that will be comfortable for baby. i now use a diaper service but eventually want to buy and use my own diapers. which would you recommend?? thanx guys!

Re: your favorite diapers/covers

welcome
we used a diaper service for the first couple of months too.
it was a good way for us to ease into everything. now I have way too many wool covers... LOL, but I really like them for overnight. the only thing I don't like is that I have to wash them if/when they get poop on them, and lately, that's often, so more lanolizing, that can get a little annoying
I like the bummis super whisper wraps, mother ease, and pro wraps
we use prefolds and I think that's what we're going to stick with, esp. to keep costs down (not only with materials, but washing & drying too - we have a pay-per-use w/d)
this is def. the place to be to try out different styles. I bought some used things for cheap on here and sold them back if I didn't like them or they didn't work out for us

i love fleece, and other mamas swear their loyalties to wool (but fleece is cheaper and can be washed with your diapers... only reason I have never tried wool)
I also love FMBG and GEN-Y pul covers.

thank you for your reply. that is actually very helpful. i didnt think of the stripping and lanolizing. i dont want to do that at all. so im not sure anymore, maybe ill just stick to regular covers ive been using. do fleece need special care??
