@bluestriped bee: I found that I had to strip my microfiber anytime I started to notice a stink. I smelled them right after they came out of the wash usually just to make sure there wasn't any barnyard smell going on.

We use mostly BG (pockets & freetimes) with a few Rumparooz pockets. I bought a few 4.0s (pockets) and freetimes before she was born so I could figure out which we liked better. I fully expected to love the ease of the freetimes, but we ended up with mostly pockets because the freetimes rarely fit snug enough around her legs. She's always hovered around the 50th percentile, but she's not THAT skinny. We've finally been able to comfortably incorporate our freetimes into the usual rotation once she turned 14-15 months or so.
We love our BG and Rumparooz, though DH finds the Rumparooz more difficult to put on (they are stretchier and you have to pinch and pull a little to get a good fit - I don't have issues with it).

I have Softbums but I might do Best Bottoms instead if I was going to do it again.

@petitenoisette: We use the Thirsties hemp inserts, size large. They are great.

My sister-in-law is a cloth diaper guru. She has tried them all and prefers diapers that are made locally, but have an online business. Nicki's diapers. They are one size and have snaps all over the place to get the right fit. They have pocket (which she preferred) and AIOs). They have both velcro and snap versions, we got her hand-me-downs.

@avivoca: Yeah, I'm not sure what it was. I was using BG newborn diapers and the wash was fine. It wasn't until I started using the OS BG pockets and freetimes that I noticed that they weren't getting clean. They were brand new, too.
@bluestriped bee: are you using enough detergent and water when you wash?

I have a couple BG Freetimes and lots of BG 4.0s. I prefer the 4.0s. I think they fit DD better. I don't mind stuffing them.
@avivoca: Yeah, prewash is on medium setting but the main wash is on large setting. I'm using 1.5 cups of F&C detergent with borax and oxiclean in the main wash. Half a cup of F&C in the prewash. I do have moderate hard water so the borax should help that.
