It really depends on what 'type' suits you.
I have tried all different ones and have found that I prefer Pockets. There have a waterproof outer and have a 'pocket' that you put the inserts in. Inserts can come with the nappies or you can put anything in. I use cheap microfibre clothes from Poundland etc to boost them up a bit
Or you can go for pre-folds. They are like the old fashioned terry nappy but are already cut to shape. Some have velcro tabs or some need a nippa. Then you put the waterproof wrap over that.
here are some links to show you the difference:
One example of the Pocket nappy (There are LOADS more on the market though)
I use an old fleece blanket cut into liners and when he has pooed, I wiggle the liner over the toilet and then hold it by the edge of the loo as I flush it and this usually rinses the poo off. I then put them into a bucket. When it comes to wash them my 'routine' is
Cold rinse with a few drops of tea tree oil (Cold rinse helps get rid of smells as hot water sort of seals it in) Wash on 50 with a very small amount of washing detergent Rinse nappies.
If I tumble dry I put a small piece of fabric in with a few drops of essential oil on.
Hope this has helped?
I really don't have a nappy addiction......honest!!!

i don't use them myself, but when back home a lot of the peeps still uses them. It's not as bad as peeps make it to be, really i wish i could use it but hb does not like nappies being soaked and all that. If you get into a routine you'll be fine.
