We wanted an easy to use, inexpensive cloth diaper, and these are definitely that. We started when my son was 11 months old and still use them for night time at 3 1/2. Pros: relatively inexpensive, adjustable fit, easy to wash, only had blow outs when it was the big D. Cons: they are wearing out and the elastic has lost its stretch. They are not absorbent enough to hold all his pee most nights, even with inserts, and haven't been since he was 2. However, we just deal with it and change his pjs & sheets every day.
