People will argue with you until they're blue in the face. Cloth diapers are not EASY, you're just saying that because you like them and want to convince people to use them. But they are easy we protest, well at least there are easier methods and tips that you can learn to cloth diaper more easily.
Having had twins in cloth diapers I was surprised to find that the easiest method for me wasn't the most modern.
While at home I preferred to use cloth cotton prefolds and diaper covers, specifically Thirsties diaper covers. With aplix fasteners and different sizes, the covers are easy to put on and hold the prefold in place without needed a snappi or diaper pins.
You don't HAVE to use a fancy folding technique if you don't want to and you don't even have to change the cover with each diaper change, just the prefold.
Another tip to make it even better, wipe out the cover, even if you think it didn't get soiled. I found that without wiping, after a few changes it began to smell like urine. If you wipe the inside of the cover before putting it back on I discovered that the cover could be used for even longer without needing to be washed. This was a big deal considering that I had two in cloth and required a lot of diapers.
Do you use prefolds and diaper covers? Did you imagine them to be complicated and a hassle only to discover like I did that they are super easy to use? Do you prefer them over more modern cloth diaper styles?
