Re: Does anyone NOT have pockets?

Technically I have pockets and AIO. My cousin was given 21 well loved AIO. She passed them on to me.(plan to ffs) My sister was using some pockets as covers. When life got to hectic for her to deal with cloth she passed all her diapers to me. (may FFS not sure yet, she may yet need them) All are in storage right now. We use flats/prefolds/fitteds under wool when home or out and about. My son has been in PUL(except for swim diapers) 4 times since birth.

I didn't have pockets with my oldest, as they weren't invented yet. I did with my second, and now this time no pockets again. For out and about I usually use fitteds and a cover, but prefolds and a cover really aren't any harder out than they are at home. I have at least one prefold in the diaper bag at all times, a snappi, 2-3 covers, and some fitteds. Works fine.

Well, we technically have some pockets, but we never use them as pockets. Out and about we use aios or trifolded prefolds and covers.

In the beginning we used pockets, but DH hated unstuffing wet ones and they also never got clean enough and started repelling like mad. For a while we put them up and didn't use them at all. Then I had an aha moment and realized you can use pockets like covers, so that's what we do now. No unstuffing and the fleece can repel all it wants!

We have one. That hardly ever gets used. Haha. We use prefolds and covers just like we normally do at home. It never occurred to me to use anything "special" just for going out.

Re: Does anyone NOT have pockets?

We have a few pockets that I virtually never use until I decide I want to try the ease of pockets again.

I don't like the stay dry of pockets, I feel like too much exposure to stay dry gives my babies a rash and I really don't like stuffing. Also, it seems like any time I use a pocket it leaks rather quickly. We use pfs or flats with covers. For out and about I use tri folded pfs or padfolded flats and for home sometimes use the snappi.

Re: Does anyone NOT have pockets?

We have some pockets - used as overnight dipes only. We use AI2 normally and that's what we use when we go out. I've not tried AIOs until recently and am obsessed. I'm building a stash now for our LO since our son is almost out of diapers!

Re: Does anyone NOT have pockets?

We don't use pockets or AIO/AI2. I use snappied prefolds or fitteds with a PUL cover at home and at night and fitteds for outings. Works great for us right now. It seems like too much work to use pockets and AIOs
