our little fabs was a bit of a pip squeak, so i found that fitted diapers worked best for us in the newborn stage [which lasted a couple months as she gained weight so slowly.] my favorites were kissaluvs size 0 and thirsties size xs. my favorite covers were thirsties and the fabulous aqua cover found on etsy.
for the last few months [once she reached about 9 lbs.] my go to diaper has been my charlie banana's. i love the colors, i like that the fleece lining keeps her nice and dry. i also have some bum genius dipes with velcro and i've found that i prefer the snaps. just a personal preference thing. although it is nice to have some velcro as they seem easier for others to use [babysitters, etc.] the pocket diapers have an insert that go inside the pocket. i recently purchased some hemp inserts as i read they are trim and very absorbent... the jury is still out on those.
i have a couple wet bags for soiled diapers. i have an xl, which holds about 14 diapers. the perfect size for a couple days worth of diapers. i found my wet bags at monkey foot designs, they are extremely well made and she has great fabrics to choose from. as a matter of fact, would someone get me this one. please and thanks.
i also have a medium bag, which holds about 3 small diapers. it's the perfect size to go in the diaper bag.
my amazing mooms found these swim diapers at salva's! i have yet to use them, so i should probably go buy a kiddie pool right this minute and put them to use. especially considering it is going to be so dang hot this week.
i purchased all my diapers on sale or gently used, which has kept the expense down considerably [all my charlie banana's were 40% off!]. here are some helpful sites i have used:
