Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

I want to know what your best {and worst!} purchases have been during your time cloth diapering?

My best is a tie between my BGs and my diaper sprayer.

My worst was probably my Gdiapers. They didn't work for us at all!

Re: Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

My best was my AMP Duo. (I immediately bought 6 more )

My worst would be the velcro Rumparooz. Ugh. They were only $15 so I bought 5 of them (plus a snap one that works ok). They don't work on ds at all. They are bulky and the tabs wick so much his clothes get wet. I contacted the company, and they determined it was a fit problem.
Plus the fleece on one of them is so thick that ds can't wear it- the legs won't get even remotely snug and the leak out the legs immediately.

Re: Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

My best accessory was my diaper sprayer. I think I would have given up on CD long ago was it not for this. My best diaper purchase was the BG Bamboo (Rayon, LOL?) fitteds. They are awesome for little ones!

My worst purchase was KL0. I got them because EVERYONE recommended them but DD2 peed through them like nothing.

Worst were some crap ebay dipes when I first started. Kushies were a close second.

Best would be my diaper sprayer and GoodNights.

The best are 5 Dream-Eze fitteds I traded with another DS Mama.

The worst was 10 ATD AIOs they didn't work for us at all and we only ever put 2 on DS.

Re: Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

My best = any fuzzibunz I bought on here for a good price.

My worst = paying over $25 for fancy diapers. I love the fancy diapers...and a lot of them work great...but I've discovered that the "fun" of new diapers wears off and I would rather have the money.

Re: Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

best purchase ---diaper sprayer!! hands down. just got back from a week on vacation without it and i almost kissed the darn thing~!!

worst purchase--cheap inserts off fsot---they were so old and stinky i had to throw them out, they were far from salvagable. i learned quickly that YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR especially on fsot

I agree with the fancy diapers. I have a bunch of fun & fancy diapers that are cute {and were expensive!} but in the back of my rotation. I should have bought some practical diapers!

I think we all learn the "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" on FSOT. I've gotten some yucky inserts too. Oh the ammonia!

Re: Best and Worst Cloth Diapering Purchases?

I think my best purchase was my planet wise wet bag. i looove it and i use it for tons of stuff. actually, i have about four of them. I think kushies would be my worst. I just wasn't terribly impressed. I've bought a couple of fancy dipes, but I always return to my tried and true prefolds in the end.
