What Diaper would you NEVER buy again? - Page 3

post #41 of 85

Bumgenius, or any other with microfiber.  It's just too much of a headache to wash them. 

 

Actually I probably shouldn't even answer here, because I've become such a flats snob.  I got some free Babykicks Hemp one-size diapers that are pretty amazing, but never use them because they're a pain compared to the flats.

 

We started with 3 dozen flats from Green Mountain Diapers (they now have organic).  We snappied them under a Thirsties as a newborn, or a Imse Vimse wool cover.

 

Now we just pad fold the flats and put them in a Flip, Imse Vimse Wool, or G Diaper cover. 


Everything else I have tried collects stink, or needs complicated washing routines.  I've given away a few hundred in fancy diapers because I so love my flats.

Me too!  I bought some Gerber ones that were on clearance, they went to straight to the rag pile.  I need to get some good quality ones.

Side-snapping diapers. Specifically, GAD--I love how they look, but they just don't fit my kiddo at all. 

 

I do love bamboozles (while in NB stage especially), though.

FB One size. I hated them. Almost swore off CDing altogether because of them.

 

As much as I love the way they look and fit, the perfect size FBs arent much better. After 3 months of use, ALWAYS being line dried, nine out of twenty of my diapers have delaminated. Infuriating.

 

I hate any AI2 system. Drives me nuts .. I don't get the hype. Definitely more of a pocket/AIO kind of gal, I guess.

And see, i love the SP wool. I dont find them to be small, they fit the contours perfectly. And they were our go-to dipe for long car rides until his bladder started outstripping the smalls (I had to start putting him in Meds because of capacity long before size, not just the SP, but everything). I will say that the most recent wool SP covers i purchased I am not impressed with at all, but the ones i bought 16 mos ago and all the ones i bought used work great.

Bumgenius OS pockets. I do love bumgenius sized AIOs and the OS aio with snaps, but the OS pockets were my least favorite diaper ever. The velcro didn't last the duration of diapering my oldest...they look like absolute hell now, and I really hate stuffing pockets in general.

It's a good thing there are so many varieties because for every diaper someone loves another person wouldn't buy it again.  :)

post #49 of 85

For the record, I use bum genuises and gerber prefolds and I love them both!

 

Rock Mountian Diapers. Super Cute, but the leak and they dont fit well.

Any Little Beetle product with snaps. I bought a bunch of their dipes for DS1 and the snaps immediately fell off half of them. I sent them in for repair at my own expense, and when I got them back....the snaps again fell off of one dipe after another. Thankfully, my $ was refunded. I have seen enough reviews of these diapers to know that this is a continuing problem for them.

 

Also, I detest the Weehuggers cover. The material on the inside that holds the flat or PF in place gets so soaked with each use that it needs to be dried OVERNIGHT before it can be used again. Yes, I change my DS about every hour, so it's not like his diaper is bursting with pee or anything.

 

Also, like a PP said, I will no longer buy CD's with microfiber, velour, minky, suedecloth, hemp, or whatever else they come up with. I just ended up with major stink problems with all that stuff. Especially since I have a shared laundry situation, CD's MUST be easy to wash and dry. It's 100% cotton for this kiddo!

See, I really like AI2s.  I have a couple of passed down Pampered Bunz A12s that I *love*, and wish I could find more of.  There are a couple of other brands that I like, too. I like how easy and trim they are.  And I don't have much problem with hemp or anything else.  I just throw it all in the washer, and wash it all together.  I don't have a complicated wash routine, I have too much going on in my life for that, lol.

Muttaqin Baby...so very sad.  They have made up the majority of my stash for nearly 8 years of cloth diapering and 3 kids.  Unfortunately, the last dozen I bought 2 years ago for my last baby are not going to be usable with our new little one coming in June.  I am so disappointed.  The quality and workmanship went so far down.  Within weeks, some of the snap in soakers came unsewn and separated, and by the time 6 months had gone by the outsides were starting to shred.  :(  I have muttaqin baby diapers that are still going strong with nary a tear after nearly 8 years and 3 kids and all of the newer ones just fell apart.  I'm not sure what happened.  My wash routine never changed and we don't use bleach.  Now, I'm scrambling to find something similar.  I *love* the 3-step-rise.  So bummed!

I LOVE gDiapers! They work for us.  We had some leaks in the beginnig, before I figured out the liner needs to be in one certain spot, like underwear.  Velcro never curled much even if dried in a dryer, usually I just hand dry the covers though.   We only use gDiapers - with gmd prefolds, sometimes with the disposable liner when traveling and don't have access to a washing machine.  smile.gif

I don't think I'll buy another of the Kissa's Marvels OS cover. my 21 pounder is wearing it on the largest setting, and it's still tight in the belly and legs. it has very tight elastic.

I will never buy another Rump-a-rooz diaper. I ordered 6 before ds2 was born, and 2 of them had fleece inners so thick that they would've probably been hugely bulky on him even now at 20 mos. They were all sent as "first quality." They also ALL wicked wetness out the tabs. The CS was bad- they tried to "troubleshoot" by telling me to redo things that I'd already done. Nothing else. And I've heard other stories of people with awful CS from them, too. 

 

And Kushies. Though to be fair, I had some kushies fitteds that were ok. I used them when ds2 started getting diaper rashes, before I had other fitteds that I liked better.

they have to work for some people, otherwise they wouldn't be so easy to find. they just didn't work for us. (well, they did for a while, but later we started having lots of issues.

Did you buy your FBs new? If so, they have a one-year warranty and the company will replace them.

Sugarpeas hemp 2 size.  So many of them lost the leg elastic, and while the store I bought from would replace them, it got ridiculous.

 

MEOS, I love them, but they aren't absorbant enough IMO.

 

BG - it pains me to say it, because I do like the design, but the Apilix goes too fast.

OsoCozy Fitted. Says it fits 7-15lbs and there is just no way this is true unless you have a very skinny baby. I only bought one and Im glad.

I had the same issue with OsoCozy. I got the size that starts at 13lbs, yet it seemed rather snug on my 12 pounder! Also, this diaper is so thick that it's hard to wash. I only used it once, and I can't get the stink out, plus it takes way too long to dry.

I will never buy Rumparooz again.  I made the mistake of stocking up on these before DS was born because I liked the concept that they "fit" from birth through toddlerhood...which of course they do not.  They are HUGE for a newborn (even the tiny little joey's) and have a strange fit for older babies too.  They really do not fit my baby at all (he has a long body and skinny little chicken legs!).  I guess it depends on the size and shape of your baby, as does every brand and style of diaper, but it seems that the Rumparooz have a very funny shape- they are very tight around the waist and too loose around the legs, so we have had leakage issues every since we started using them.  They are extremely bulky as well.  An even bigger problem has been the horrendous stench that I cannot seem to get rid of, no matter how many detergents I try or different washing methods.  

 

I LOVE my organic cotton pre-folds and wish I had invested only in those.  I also really love my Engel tie wraparound nappies (similar to the Disana tie wraparounds).  Once you figure out how to tie them properly, which can take a few tries, they are actually really wonderful, especially with an extra insert for more absorbency...  Overall, I have discovered that sometimes the simpler (and cheaper!!), the better!
