Who DOES NOT use pockets?

And if you don't what do you use? I was stuffing the FB's I have last night and let me tell ya, I don't think I am the biggest pocket dipe fan. I love them once they are stuffed but stuffing them is a PITA! I would love to know what the non-pocket users have in their stash. One of these days I might be able to do some diaper shopping and I want to know what to look for.

And BTW I had a couple of AIO's but they dry sooooooooo slow. Are AI2's better?

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

I don't like pockets either! I think I would go mad if I was stuffing them all the time. People say they are easy but I am too lazy for pockets. It hink AI2's might work great for you since they will dry quicker. My favourite that has worked for us is actually trifolded prefolds in covers. For us they work like an AI2. It is just a matter of figuring out what you like. Have fun!

I'm kind of old-fashioned and just use prefolds and wraps. They are just so much easier, in my opinion. I do have some fitteds and snap covers that I use occasionally, too, but always seem to go back to the pfs and wraps.

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

I had bought some pockets on sale & really don't like them... IMO they leak more & are a pita... I sold most of them but keep two in the stash for no apparent reason... I think b/c a friend made them I can't let them go. But they're rarely used. I stick to PFs mostly & also have some hemp OSFs that I like for night b/c I don't even need a cover w/them!

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

Pockets always leaked for us so I sold them all. I use fitteds and prefolds now. I almost never have leaks now. I really wanted to love pockets or AIOS because I wanted a one step change system but they ended up being more trouble because of all the leaks.

Prefolds w/BSWW or Bumpy Night covers. I kept 2 pockets (a white FB and bug FB--i love the bug print!) to use as part of our night stash and i stuff those w/microfiber. But i really loooove pf, they're so easy and convenient IMO.

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

When I'm not using pockets, I use prefolds with the BSWW. These will never last overnight for us, so pockets it is.

I have pockets, but I don't like them. I would sell them, but I don't think I'd get enough for them to cover the trip to the PO, lol. The thing I dont like about pockets is pulling that nasty insert out. Yuck.

I mostly use AIO/AI2's. AI2's do dry faster, and I just leave the snap-in snapped in during the wash so they are just like AIO's. You can also add absorbancy under the snap-in if you need.

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

I'm not a big pocket user, either. I have a handful - mostyly used for DS overnight. I prefer prefodlds and wool or wraps. I just use a more absorbant prefold for overnight, sometime I added a hemp doubler as the kids get older.

Re: Who DOES NOT use pockets?

Well I am glad i'm not the only one that doesn't LOVE pockets. Like I said once they are put together they are great but BLECH! I have a friend who wants more FB's and I am thinking about selling them to her and just investing that money in some cool covers and some more fitteds and pf's!
