I only started using cloth when Nell was about 4months old and tried out loads of different types before I settled on the ones I really liked (or rather loved ).
I have one LL bamboo which I quite like but I definitely prefer pockets eg Fuzzi Bunz, Blueberry Side-snaps, Weenotions Side snaps, Bumgenius, etc etc. What I like about pockets is that you can stuff them with loads of different combinations to suit your baby/water hardness/drying options. I tend to use a microfibre insert (quick drying) plus either a bamboo square (folded into 3) or an Easy Peasy hemp insert (slow drying but very absorbant).
Sorry if I've confused you, but there really is sooo much choice out there
