If you could use pockets full time would you?

No. We gave up on pockets and switched completely to fitteds and wool.

I use pockets full time on C. Have done since he was about 5 months. Fitteds were awful for him. Left marks on his legs terribly.

Use Minkis at night and Blueberry side snaps during the day. Have had Upsy Daisies during the day but prefer Blueberries now.

I do prefer pockets and AI2's and would use them full time if I hadn't discovered wool :giggle: and my lovely DnF's. I am in a pocket phase at the moment I think because Kacie is wearing dresses a lot more with the weather being so nice and I only have one soaker.
I've honestly never found them any less reliable and would say our Itti's and DnF's last about the same time :wink: but then Kacie has never been a very heavy wetter and Little Boo may be a mega wetter and I may change my mind completely :lookround:

We used pockets full time and Martha was a fairly heavy wetter. Some BG's boosted with hempeasy boosters, a lot of Fuzzis with bamboo and microfibre inserts, and a few random others.

We never got on with Ittis, bought one and had to sell it on as she out wee'd it in less than 2 hours. Otherwise she would go 3-4 hrs.

I use pockets full time. Isaac is a heavy wetter so sometimes will leak after 1.5hr, sometimes no leaks in 3hr. I did try fitteds some time ago but found these leaked even faster than pockets :shock: . I love the look of wool but personally prefer Isaac in 'normal' clothes. I'm happy using pockets full time during the day but always use bedbugs at night with a fleece soaker (PUL over-night causes rash) :)

I love my pockets, but they don't seem to be doing as well as fitteds at the moment, so I am having a thin down of my pocket hoard to bring some fancy (and not so fancy) fitteds into play ;)

I use pockets full time, only have a few fitteds. I find the bg's can be stuffed pretty full - recently use a large muslin square and 2 mf inserts when going out for a while and no leaks. I am supposed to be buying hemp inserts but everytime I get some paypal I spend on more fabric to make him clothes d'oh.

I get frustrated with fitteds because he really won't sit still during nappy changes and need to do it mega quick.

I use pockets during the day, and ai2's, ittis, wn, and bgs, and fitted and wool; for night. just don't get on with him wearing wool during the day. its not practical and is quite expensive, constantly having to change his trousers. I love them at night though, and if I had a girl she would be in wool full time cos skirties are cute!

We have a mixture of pockets and fitteds in our stash, and i occasionally have a wobble and think i am going to use fitteds 100% of the time (i do reach for them alot more than our pockets and aios). I like having the choice though :)
