Well, I've been around the block a few times with all different kinds of diapers and finally settled back with ME sandy's and airflows. I love both and have never had any problems with them. I tried all kinds of WAHM dipes, but the really good ones are pricey and hard to come by, and really didn't work any better than ME. The only other dipes I still own are my prefolds (always great for backup)and one SOS hemp diaper (which I managed to snag before the prices increased and demand skyrocketed). I sold off everything else, never looking back. Ditto what Karen C said about all the concerns--all diapers have their drawbacks, I guess.
About nighttime systems, ME was the first system we used that NEVER leaked for us. That was using one onesize and a snap-in liner. Everything else we tried leaked. Once we got the ME, we've never used anything else at night.
I hope you enjoy the hunt for diapers--it can be really fun! But I'll always stand by my ME!
: I am interested in cloth diapering and am unsure where to start. I have a friend who uses ME diapers and has said that they are the best. I recently found a website (diaperpin.com) which has reviews on cloth diapers and I was surprised at how many cloth diaper systems there are and that ME is not rated as highly as many other cloth diapers. The negatives about the ME OS diaper that people on this board posted about were that the diapers are no good for heavy wetters, they get scratchy, they get smelly and need to be washed extra times, and lastly that the only cover that fits over them is the Air Flow. The main negative about the AF was that they leave red marks on baby. Some people posted that this is dealt w' by leaving gaps in the legs and oddly enough no leaks occur?!
: I'm assuming that most people on this board use and love ME diapers so I'd like to hear what you think (as well as other people). There's so many cloth diapers out there I'm unsure of where to start and would like to take my friends word for it that they are the best but I'm thinking twice after reading the reviews and seeing that other diapers on that board have higher ratings then ME.
