Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

Well, as a previously avid pocket user (I still am), and newly converted fitteds/wool user, I would think you would regret selling your wool. It's just so darn purty!! Plus, won't you get bored of just using one system? Honestly, that's a major reason I started with fitteds. I don't like using pockets all the time. Some days are only fitteds w/wool, especially if I want to show off how cute DS's woolly bottom is!

That said, I'm sure ppl will snatch up whatever wool you do decide to sell!

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

Shoot, honey, I'll take that wool off your hands for you! LOL!

Seriously, though, even if you decide to get some pockets, I wouldn't sell all your woolies off. I can't tell you how many things I've sold and lived to regret!

I got rid of fitteds & covers to go with pockets because DH was sort of awkwards with it and I figured pockets would be easier. But now I'm back to trying to get together some fitteds and wool, mostly for around the house or at night. I love a wooly little tushie!

That being said, you might like fleece pockets. Sort of a compromise? Breatheable but easy. I don't like fleece for all the time, but it is great for around the house or nighttime, too.

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

I started out with all pockets and I LOVED them (still do). But, there was so much to "try" in the CD world, so I slowly expanded.

I now have prefolds, fitteds, AI2s, one wool soaker, and a few misc. things. But, you know what? I still use pockets like 90% of the time!!

I would say keep a few things, so you can still use both kinds, but I wouldn't hang on to it, just to hang on to it. That's just me though!

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

I just went on back to back trips for two weeks and we only use pockets or AIO's when we travel, for packing and laundry ease. I can only say this, I was very happy to come back to my wool and fitteds, etc. The thing out fitteds I love is the security: no wicking, no blow outs... I am a 50/50 gal, I use pockets and AIO's for going out in public, and diaper bags, grandparents, etc....at home I am mostly a fitted gal!

I started with pockets and I like them so much that I do not want to try anything else (yet ). They are super convenient, and we are leak free!

I love love love pockets, but do use a few fitteds around the house and for bed time for our 6 week old.

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

I used to LOVE pockets until DD began to get a weird reaction to it overnight. So, we switched to fitteds and wool and it's the best thing we've done. I have posted this before, but I'll post it again. DD doesn't have leaks anymore at night, no more irritated crotch area, and the system isn't much harder for DH. He didn't like stuffing the pockets we did have. He used to make ME do it! LOL

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

I'm actually in the process of trying to switch my stash to wools & fitteds from pockets. I'm going to keep a few pockets, as they're great for nighttime. But I don't know, I'm a very "natural" type person, and wool and fitteds (and prefolds) feel more "natural" to me. I also like the breathability.

Re: Anyone Just Use Pockets?

I have all pockets right now except for 1 fitted. That was until 2 days ago, when a wool soaker was calling my name on ebay. Then I had to buy 2 more fitteds I love love love my pockets, but think wool will be the way to go for us at night. My ds is a big time supersoaker, and we have to stuff the pockets so full, that I think he'd be more comfy in a fitted and wool at night.
