I know I am late on this but I wanted to let you know that you will see all sorts of set ups over here. I use a little of everything right now with wool covers (just starting those).

Hey covavanessa!

I'm actually looking to sell my stash. I live in Japan, not Okinawa but shipping would still be super cheap. I have pre-folds, covers, and a few never been used pocket type diapers. Let me know if you are interested and I can give you more details!

If you use PFs or Flats, the Japanese covers are great for holding them in place even if you just tri-fold them. The covers cost between 750-1000yen each. They even have wool wrap covers at the same cost, but only until size 70cm or 9kg. Most online store ship to APO/FPO address at the same cost as continental US.

HTH

Welcome! I've found the most important thing is something that dries quickly. It's humid here! AIOs and wool are too much for me to bear, but everything else goes!

I use wool and have no issues with it drying any slower than then anything else. They are usually dry overnight.
