Pros: Cute colors, poo comes off easily, easy to replace elastic
Cons: Leaked, hard to get the right size, elastic is exposed
I bought these used from a Mama here on MDC. I wanted a night time diaper that was very absorbent, but wouldn't leave my LO feeling wet and getting rashy like my cotton prefolds had been doing. The six I received were all in excellent condition - one was even new, unused.
Initially I liked these diapers. I thought the design was cool. I spent a good hour painstakingly fitting all the diapers to my son - six buttons to adjust per diaper. I tucked all the little 'tails' in their little 'holes' and we tried them that night.
I'm forever wondering how people get these diapers to work. I mean... fleece repels water. Is it any wonder that my son's pee would just roll right off the diaper and out the leg hole??? That's precisely what happened in my bed. We tried again, thinking it was a fluke, but no - another leak, another wet bed!
We were not using any diaper creams or anything, so I'm not sure what our issue was. I re-adjusted the elastics and whatnot, but we always had the same issues.
Also, every time they are washed the elastic 'tails' come out of the 'holes' and you have to re-tuck them all again. Plus stuff the diaper. I just thought they were a lot of work compared to a prefold and cover!
Anyway... I sold them. I'm not a fan.
