As soon as you start to read a little about cloth diapers you find that there are different kinds of cloth diapers. Todays cloth diapers are no longer have to be folding cloths (but it can if you want) but they come in a variety of shapes, including pre-folded cloth diapers, all-in-one diapers with a waterproof cover, fitted diaper with covers or pockets (cloth diapers you can fill yourself). All consist of a water-resistant outer PUL layer to keep bodily waste in often with an opening sewn in the diaper for insertion of extra absorbent material inserts.
Here you will find an overview of the each of the different types. Each type has a short description and their pros and cons. Hopefully, this helps you make a choice for a cloth diaper that suits you and your baby.
As you can see, you have lots of choices. What works best for you depends on how much time you want to invest in the diapers and your budget. I started with different systems; pockets, all-in-ones and fitted diapers (I did not want to fold diapers) from different brands. By trying them out I found out what I like to use and what suited my daughter. I choose fitted diapers to use at home and I also bought a few pockets for the daycare. As those were easiest to use for them.
Which system did you choose for you and your baby?
