I really like that they don't leak, and Cas is very skinny and lots of diapers have leaked on us (although it is happening less as he gets chubbier). They are also much trimmer than other cloth diapers and fit underneath his onesies without looking weird.
It looks big on him inthe pictures but in person they actually look and fit quite trim and tidy. We'll keep using these, as they are Chris's favorite cloth diaper so far, and I will use them in conjunction with the rest of my cloth diapers.

Everything else is going good. Chris is back at work, so Cas and I just spend our days with him eating and sleeping and I try to clean when I can mnuster up the energy to do so. Cas is starting to sleep better during the night- still getting up every 2 or 3 hours to eat, but now he falls right back asleep and that is a huge improvement from the first couple of weeks we had him home. During the day he is staying awake longer between naps and it is really wonderful to see those beautiful blue eyes looking around him and taking it in. The dogs love him, they always want to sniff him and lick his head.

For those of you who don't know, a pocket All-In-One is a diaper that has "built-in absorbency and waterproof outer shell. Includes a pocket opening to stuff a doubler or insert when you need extra absorbency. Inner layer of stay-dry microfleece keeps baby feeling dry and leg gussets are an excellent protection from blowouts" (from the Thirsties website http://www.thirstiesbaby.com/products.htm).
The diaper itself was VERY easy to use, even easier than the disposables, in my opinion- but I am really bad at putting the disposables on, for some reason. He had some major poops and a lot of pee while wearing the Thirsties diaper, and, even though it was slightly too large, we didn't have any leaking or mess. It was slightly bulky, but I think that is more related to it being too big, for example, the crotch went down to his knees, and I don't think they normally do that. The fabric and craftmanship of the diaper was great quality, and it will definitely last a long time. I appreciate the double gussets, as well, I think they will keep everything where it's supposed to be better than if it only had one gusset.
The only thing I don't like is that because the inner absorbant layer (the stuffer) is sewn into the pocket instead of being removable, it took a long time to completely dry. But because of the ease in using this one-step system, I can deal with the longer drying time.
