What diapers do we use?

I get asked this question a lot: "What diapers do YOU use?"

Our daughter is 3 1/2 but still wears a diaper overnight. Over the years, we've used everything I carry but some favorites have floated to the top. Our current stash has Knickernappies, Fuzzi Bunz, and Snap-EZ.

Why those three brands? First, we prefer snaps. Snaps vs velcro is just a personal preference and a couple of years ago we decided on snaps. Snaps don't wear out so properly cared for, the diapers can last a very long time. Second, all of those are sized diapers. We found that sized diapers fit our daughter best. Finally, those three brands just fit her really, really well. No leaks, no fuss, just good dependable diapers.

Now that we're expecting a new baby, I'm not sure what we'll try when he or she arrives. Probably a little of everything to start the experiment all over again! But certainly Knickernappies, Fuzzi Bunz, and Snap-EZ will be among the first we use.
