I like the Kissaluvs much better than the ME. Neither are very absorbant but the Kissaluvs seem slighty more so, esp. with the doubler added. They fit my son much better and I like the lower rise. The ME come up too high and cut off his chubby belly when he sits and are also harder to get a good fit. My son is 9 months and almost 18 lbs and we are still using size 1s and they will probably work for a while longer. Good luck!
