In case you haven't noticed, cloth diapering is a lot different than it was when my mom used them on me. The thought of plastic pants makes me cringe. It didn't take long for me to realize that I didn't have to worry about rubber chafing my kid...

I really thought about making my own covers, but as the days passed, I realized there is just no way that I'd have time for that. Let's be real. I was comfortable using the bumGenius diapers, and I thought used would probably be fine. Besides, cloth that has already gone through prewash is much more exciting to get in the mail (you have to prewash and dry them 6-8 times before using the 1st time). I took a shot in the dark and ordered some used covers without inserts on eBay. In the lot are 3 different brands: Alva, Babyland, and Rainbow BB. I have only received the Alva ones so far, so that's all I can talk about (although I've heard good things about Babyland and better things about Rainbow BB).

All in all, I'd totally buy them again, but I'll wait and see how I like the Rainbow BB and Bablyand ones to make a decision on that. Stay tuned for more on cloth diapering - it's kind of an adventure (c:
