So I have been broadening my horizons a bit and venturing out from the household names. Diaperpin.com has reviews of every brand out there, so it's easy to see what other users think. This is what I have ordered:
Bububebe - these seem to be a favorite for a lot of people, so I decided to give them a try. I went a little crazy and got 5! Two are multi-color striped, one is rainbow striped, one has pastel dots and one has adorable horses and carrots. It's hard to find gender-neutral dipes!
Wee Ones - solidly good reviews, I found these as seconds and ordered one each of cream, red, green, and yellow. With added optional snaps they were $12 each with shipping. Normally they would be about $20.
NRSS Sticky Peas - I had to Google to find out what this meant! NRSS stands for "No roll, simply stick." They are $28 new (if you can get them) and I got these for $12 each. I got one with jungle animals and one with giraffes. They are so cute! These need pins or a snappi but I decided to give them a try anyways.
I have been looking at reviews of covers and am realizing more and more that wool seems to be the way to go, at least for nighttime. The wool absorbs any overflow from the diaper and keeps the bed dry. It's also softer and not crinkly like a lot of synthetic covers. They have the cutest little shorts and pants available. They are horribly expensive, so I think when the time is right I will ask my mom to knit me some. So far I have onyl bought one wool cover, a Loveybums. It's pretty plain but I think it would be good for daytime use.
I also found out that a lot of people use the adorable Goodmamas without a cover during the day because they are so absorbent. I love this idea!
My total stash is now 15 fitteds and 5 AIOs. Getting there fast!
