Hi, I am new to the cloth diapering world. I have fallen in love with my unbleached chinese prefolds & thirsties covers routine. I have one problem, though. I purchased the correct "size" prefolds for my daughter but they are SO small around her waist it seems. I can secure it with a snappi but the snappi claws catch right at the edge of the corner (if you know what I mean). Is this the correct fit and I just don't realize it?

[For reference, I purchased these in the standard baby size. It says it should fit 8-18 mos, and up to 30lbs. My Leah is 8 months, and 19lbs 2oz. They fit fine around her thighs; it's her waist I am concerned about.]

TIA!

My twin's cloth diapers are starting to acquire a bit of a stench. I'm looking for some diaper stripping advice. We use Bum Genius 3.0s. TIA !!

Hello,
First time Mom here to newborn BG twins (they are 9 weeks). I'm currently using Bum Genius 3.0s and I've recently run into a problem with the boy leaking during the night. I've doubled up on the liner (one new born liner and one regular liner folded in half) and have tried strategically placing it in the diaper to no avail. Any advice on how to handle this? I'm getting tired of changing him multiple times a night and having to wash his sheets every day :(

One more question about the BG's...or a couple!

I keep reading that *every* time you wash them (BG 3.0 OS) you have to wash them twice, once in hot water and then wash again in cold. Does anyone do this, or do you just wash them once? Why do you need to wash twice every time?  If I'm going to spend the money on a full supply, I want to make sure I take care of them properly, but I also want to make sure this is really necessary. Also, do they stain easily? My baby is still exclusively breastfed, and her poop stains her clothes. Won't it stain her diaps too? One more....What detergent do you all like best?

Thank you SO much for all of your help!!

Hello. =] My 4-month old has been in disposables since she was born. I really want to switch her to cloth but I have some questions. I have been trying to do my research on them, but I am having CD brain overload as there is A LOT more to it than I ever imagined!!  So...

Has anyone ever used Bumgenius 3.0  OS? If so, did you like them?? I like the idea of DD being able to wear them for a long time, so I like the OS. I was also looking at the AIO's though. This will for sure be a stupid question...but what is the difference really (besides the size thing)?? With the OS do you need a cover? I was trying to compare bumgenius to the Fuzzi Bunz OS since I saw someone say the Fuzzi Bunz may last longer due to the snaps V.S  hook and loop closures. They say the hook and loops may wear out faster.

Sorry for my stupidity but I am super new to all of this and like I said, my brain is mush after reading so much about it!

TIA!!

Prefolders- snappis or pins?

 If you use prefolds, do you use snappis or pins? Why do you use the type that you use?
Reason I'm asking is because I've been using snappis since i started cloth diapering, but my diapers appear to be shredding more and more each wash and I was wondering if that was possibly caused by the snappis or something else, and if I should switch perhaps to pins. But seeing as i never used pins with prefolds, I wanted to know the advantages and disadvantages of pins and snappis before i make the switch...
