7. — I am set to order fitted diapers. I am wondering which is better - Velcro® or all snap closure? Does either one wear-out any faster than the other? Pros and Cons? Is Velcro® easier for baby to get out of than snap? HELP!!!! [Answer]

8. — I would like to know when to use the doublers and liners. Can they be used with fitted diapers for toddlers on a regular basis or for those long car trips or mall walks? [Answer]

9. — I am really anxious about switching to cloth as I am familiar with the disposables since I used them solely on my first child. But at the same time I need to save money in the long run. I have a 3 year old who refuses to train for nights and I believe that using cloth may be a better option for his training, and I have a one year old who is already at 30lbs. I would like the convenience of a disposable diaper (as much as possible) in a cloth diaper that is easily put on and cleaned no wrapping or folding please. This cloth diaper will also need to be able to absorb well as we tend to be out a lot and baby could wear a diaper up to 3-4 hours on occasion. Also any advice on how to get a sitter to change cloth more easily? Scared of spending and losing out convenience!!!! HELP!!!! [Answer]

10. — I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter, adopted at 20 months. She is not yet using the potty, and I would like to switch to cloth diapers now. Can you recommend what is best for an older child who might be working on potty training soon? She is pretty slightly built, and I don't want a really thick diaper etc. that wouldn't allow her free movement. Thanks! [Answer]

Do I need to purchase the covers a size up in order for them to fit over the diaper? Is it different depending on the brand of the cover? [Answer]

21. — I am currently using a diaper service with hand-me-down Prorap and Diaperap diaper covers. The Proraps seem to prevent urine leaks, but not poop leaks. I have to wash the diaper cover (and sometimes his clothing if the wetness wicks to his clothing) almost every time he poops. It seems like I might as well be using AIO's since I have to wash the diaper covers anyway. Is there a diaper cover that is especially good for this problem, or will this occur with any cover? [Answer]

22. — I really only have one question as far as cloth diaper reliability. Do they leak any more or less than disposables? When I used them on my nephews, the covers were still made of plastic and were scratchy and not terribly reliable for containing everything. Has that improved also? [Answer]

23. — My goal is to have something that is breathable and waterproof. I hate changing my baby's clothes because of the wetness coming through. Please advise me on the best thing to solve my problem. [Answer]
