What CD have you HATED!?

post #1 of 102
Thread Starter 
Simple as that... have you had a cloth diaper that you hated??

I am in the stash making process and see a lot of recommendations but I want to know what you didn't like and why...

These: http://www.ecobaby.com/catalog/product.asp?pf_id=pcabs These are the reason I tried and gave up on cloth diapering two seperate times with each of my two boys. They look and feel AWESOME and I was so excited to be given them for free- the whole set-up with lots of inserts and some covers and everything-- but those diapers-- ugh-- they were such a disappointment. I was given them by someone else who, ironically, also gave up on cloth diapering while trying to use these. I didn't make the connection before but now I wonder if these diapers played a role in quitting for her, too. Anyway, we found that they fit poorly (a narrow range of sizes), leaked, and the worst thing about them is that the snaps come off SO easily-- and you can't get them back on because they totally tear off. I am so glad I didn't spend any money on them because they are expensive!!! I gave them back to the lady who gave them to me-- well, except for the many that were unusable due to missing snaps.

I didn't hate bum genus, but I didn't love them either. The velcro was was too small for my big baby.... I was using the One Size and she was only 3 months old and I could see that the velcro would not be working for very long.

my favorite cover is thirsties so I tried their AIO and had leaks every time we used it. I guess I could stuff it with inserts but then what's the point in an AIO?

I really don't like the wonderoo OS pocket... we get horrible wing droop and it just fits all sorts of funky.

bum genius 3.0

After seven months of use, this one size diaper is falling apart. Not worth the money, imo.

Yep, me too! I don't like that it only has two sets of snaps for the sizing, so it always poofs out in the middle. Dd always seems wet around the legs, no matter what I do.

Swaddlebees pockets. Never worked for us.

Little Lambs AIO. I bought a few of these when I was pregnant with DS, and they never worked for us. The first time I took him out by myself to go grocery shopping I thought an AIO would be convenient. No. We ended up with pee all over him, me and the sling. I gave them a few more chances then got rid of them. Life is too short (and I'm not patient enough) to use crappy diapers.

G-diapers... a waste, just a waste.

I don't like Swaddlebees. They're too trim, and we always, always had leaks. I also don't really like the Bum Genius. They're not durable. I have fuzzi bunz that have been in continuous use for 4 1/2 years, and they're still in good shape. Our bum genius were worn out in less than a year.

I'm not a big pocket diaper fan to begin with, actually.

Dappi fitteds and wraps! Someone gave me some of these when my LO was born and I almost gave up on CD because of them. Leaks, leaks, leaks!

I couldn't pass up without a smile at this.

now back to my answer.

IMO -- any cloth is better than a chemically loaded disposable.
Please keep in mind as your building your stash, what works for some may be just the opposite for the person across the table. You may have the Best, Most popular, cutiest diapers purchased by many and it can be exactly what does not work for you, for many reasons.
You can have a great diaper and if you have a crappy cover it alters your thinking about the performance of the diaper itself.
You can have prefolds, the cheapest, most budget friendly diaper out there and have an awesome cover and get a better performance than the high end 50.00 diapers.
You might want to also factor in that you could have a light or heavy wetter in comparison to others. Have a child with thin or thick legs, which again alter the performance of the diaper. Long waist/short waist.

There are so many variables to consider when building a stash as your collecting testimonials. I would suggest several types/brands of diapers so you can feel out what is the best fit for YOUR baby.

To answer the question -- AIO's were my least favorite.

WOW I love swaddlebees because they're trim and I think they're super absorbant. My dd is a heavy wetter and it still contains her!

While I didn't hate them, Swaddlebee pockets never worked for us. Too narrow in the crotch = leak city. I just love their fitteds though.

Vermont Company Diapers were a big disappointment. Not very absorbant at all.

I agree with Ifluffedthree - everyone likes something different, so beware. For my dislikes - All Together Diaper's fitteds/AIO. Fit was just not great and take forever to dry. Also hold more stink than our other dipes.

HATE is a strong word, but Wonderoos OS pockets were my least favorite.

I HATE disposables
post #18 of 102
I didn't really like Happy Heineys (to be fair, the ones I had may have been prints. I also didn't like the fit at all).
I didn't like Little Lambs aio's either, but I had a print. My friend who has solid ones loves them and says they work perfectly for her.

Other than that, with ds (started cd'ing at 5mos) I hated pf's. I also tried some fitteds/covers that I couldn't stand.
Hopefully that'll be different for the newborn this time around- cuz I bought a lot of fitteds!

Swaddlebees AIO did not work for us at all. It was a really bad fit I guess.

This.

My least favorite diapers are actually Fuzzi Bunz. I am so glad that I only bought one of them even though I thought I would just adore these. I've found that snaps just annoy the heck out of me in general and that I can never get a really good fit out of my Fuzzi Bunz.

The diapering system I never thought I would enjoy is prefolds/covers and that's what I've liked the best.
