I started cloth diapering with Ellie when she was about seven months old and used them until she was potty trained at 22 months. We saved a lot of money on diapers this way and, maybe this makes me weird, but I actually enjoy cloth diapering :) Chase was a little hesitant when I began this endeavor but when he realized how much money we were saving (about $50/month), he was thankful and didn't even mind changing the diapers! I only invested about $50 in covers and pre-folds when I started out with Ellie so they paid for themselves after the first month.
The Flip brand of covers are my favorite because they hold up the best in the wash and are reasonably priced. I have also used Econobum (which is the cheapest!) but they only come in white and aren't quite as good of quality.
I use all types of traditional pre-folds on the inside of the covers.
I just take the pre-fold and fold it into thirds, place it in the cover and that is it! Unless the cover gets soiled, I can use it several times throughout the day and only have to replace the pre-fold.
