Re: Diapers- "Must-Haves" and "Stay-Away"
Every mama has her own preference! For instance, I don't like AIOs/pockets because even if it's a bit wet you have to change and wash the whole thing - but lots of other people like it for the convenience factor since it's more like a traditional diaper. I like the cover/insert method (though I didn't like gdipes) - it just seems so much simpler and you can use a variety of things for inserts, even homemade stuff.
I haven't been crazy about microfiber, either, though some of my inserts are made from that material. This time around I'm excited to try wool covers/longies, which is a natural fiber that blocks moisture. My old standbys are flip and blueberry covers.
