I think I may look into doing flats and covers in newborn, they do seem much cheaper than the other styles.

That's what I did (prefolds and covers) and I hated it. The system depends on re-using covers, but newborn poos are so messy they get on the cover almost every change. I bought a stash of newborn (6-12) and small (8-15) all in ones for #2

I read that with prefolds and with fitteds, but I've read a lot of blogs recommending the flats with covers so I may try those. I like the idea that theres really no folding it on the baby involved with flats. But I plan to get a variety of different diapers so I'm not stuck with one thing. I put all kinds on my Amazon registry so hopefully I'll have different ones to try.

Oh that's lovely I hope you get to try everything! Regardless of style well cared for cloth is so much nicer than disposables

With my son, I used pockets and prefolds. I preferred the prefolds and covers and would actually take the inserts from the pockets to use in his night time diaper.

With this potato, I plan on using flats.

If you're having horrible blowouts with prefolds (and I am assuming flats), I suggest a tight jelly roll around the legs and a good roll down in the back.

I have AIO, but tend not to stuff them because its time consuming and I'm the usually one changing diapers. If my daughter is going to Grandma's house, I stuff a few for her and I also send the hook and loop diapers so its more like a disposable; but there are still issues. But she is stubborn. I find the snaps, although last longer, really throw most people for a loop and the diaper ends up too tight or too loose.
