Cloth diapering help

I'm looking to switch my 3 month old son to cloth diapers, I've been doing endless research and have found that I think pocket and AI2 diapers with snaps would be best for us. But the cost of the top brands are outrageous (yes I know in the long run you save, but upfront I'm trying to budget) I'm not looking to buy used as I'm a weirdo like that and I know they can be sanitized, but I'm just not interested in that route for us. I've read awesome reviews about Alva and would love personal thoughts on that brand as well as baby goal who I heard was owned by Alva. If you have any other suggestions for budget friendly please let me know. Also good insert suggestions would be fantastic as well! Thanks moms!
