To be honest, I'm not positive what brand of prefolds we used, but when Myles was an infant, we LOVED prefolds with covers! I thought they were the best bang for our buck, and they held in EBF (exclusively breastfed) poo. We very, very rarely had leaks of any kind using prefolds. And even though we use mostly pockets now, I'm definitely planning on using prefolds again when we have another baby.
My favorite PUL cover, especially to use over prefolds, were our Thirsties Duo Wraps. They have the extra gusset around the leg, which helps to prevent leaks, and I loved that they came in two adjustable sizes. Even though that meant buying more covers, we got a better fit, especially when Myles was littler; I sometimes feel like one-size diapers and covers can be really bulky on little babies. So I liked that Thirsties had two sizes with the snap-downs available on both!

We haven't used many types of creams, but one I love is CJ's BUTTer cream. It goes on nice, isn't too thick, and smells delicious! We've never really had a "rash," but if a diaper is left on too long and we get some redness, this clears it up really quickly.
We've tried a few different types of detergents since we've used cloth, and my favorite is Allen's Naturally. It comes in a giant, gallon jug and lasts forever!! We've used it for almost a year and have never had to strip our diapers.
Our favorite wipes are the hemp cloth babies wipes from Babee Greens. They're still soft, even having used them for almost a year, and are thick enough that I feel like my hands will stay clean :)
