I didn't like the BG 2.0s that I used on my daughter. I agree that the velcro wore out quickly and those darn microfiber inserts got so stinky! I switched to prefolds and Bummis and loved it. With the next baby I will do NOTHING SYNTHETIC!! Going to try cotton prefolds and fitteds with wool and Bummis covers.

Bum Genius 2.0, velcro wore out in about a year. I hear you can order more for free from the company, but I am not crafty and I couldn't put them on myself I'm sure.

I have fat round chunksters and Bumgenius OS was NEVER big enough around their bellies.
Blueberry pockets with Aplix: the aplix did NOT hold up well and it often rode up on my fatty's tender belly.

This is a great thread! I always wonder what people hated and why. I believe the one-star reviews on products are more useful than the five-star reviews!

Got to admit it's getting better, getting better all the time.

Kissaluvs Contours--totally useless. Either put in the work of a prefold, or put in the money of a fitted.

Bumkins AIOs--leaky, slow-drying, and stink stank stunk

Swaddlebees pockets--Also leaky in the leg area

Happy Hineys pockets--didn't fit right at all, so tons of leg leaks

I really dislike BSWW covers, but the SuperBrites are okay.


I hate sposies.

No, same here--but it's because I have a chunky-thighed heavy-wetter. They left red marks and were soaked front to back in 5 seconds.

Bumkins AIO - Cute but leaked.

Kooshies - Leaked like crazy

Swaddlebees stuffable AIO - For some reason I have to wash and wash and wash and wash and wash to get them to smell clean.

Mutt 3SR - Snaps are confusing, rise is short, soaker is bulky and waaay too long for the diaper.

Whamies OS - Works well, but the hook thing is a lot of trouble.

Goodmama - Soaker is way to long on a tiny baby, it's bulky, it really doesn't hold anymore pee then my bamboo prefolds, the snaps leave horrible red marks.

My favorite two diapers of all time are by a HC called Cottage Babies. I have used those diapers until they are thread bare!

I like the Bummis Whisper Wrap and Superbrite covers, but they do leave marks on her legs sometimes.

Did not care for Mother Ease Rikki Wrap... huge waistband that kept her from curling her legs up and leaked bm poos every time. All together way too big.

After giving them chance after chance, I have finally put the kissaluv fitteds away for good. They always left red marks on my LO's thighs, and she's not that chunky IMO, and they also left marks and indentations all over her front and rear as if they were too small, but she is well within the weight range for that size.

I have to put in a good word for prefolds though...I've experimented with different synthetics, AIOs, and pockets trying to solve the bm poop problem, and while I will say those alternatives do hold the poop in better, I still love my prefolds the most. They always seem like the softest thing against her skin, are totally adjustable, absolutely hold the most in terms of absorbency, and I think there's nothing cuter than a little prefold-wrapped, diaper-pinned baby bottom

I'm with you guys on the kissaluvs. They held no pee and were still super bulky. I just don't have the love.

I also may as well have no diaper than a Thirsties AIO. They were the worst diaper I've ever tried. No matter what I stuffed or didn't stuff pee was everywhere. They were awful, and I really like AIOs for the most part.

Kushies and Bumkins AIO's. Ok for a small amount of pee, did not hold in poo at all.
Also didnt like the Motherease Airflow covers. They are bulky with small leg holes that leave marks.

I love Fuzzi Bunz, Thirsties covers, and Bummis super snap covers.

I HATED Happy Heinys- I DID NOT have prints and they leaked terribly anyway- right through the fabric as if they were a fitted! Horrible!

I also didn't like Drybees- not so much for function but more for fit- they are SO bulky! Talk about fluffy butt! I found it difficult to find clothes that fit nicely over them.

I also have a word about pfs- I disliked them until I really got right down to it and only used them for a week- no exceptions! That time period got me through the learning curve and allowed me the time to try nearly every fold until I found one that worked and kept everything contained. After that we had great luck with them!

bg 3.0 as well, i love them but they are wearing out and my munchkin can undo them too easily i dont think they are going to last through pl either if i can even use them that long with the way she pulls them off

I much prefer these: http://ittibitti.com.au/index.php?main_page=page&id=1 i am so in love! they are holding up great look great, almost as trim as a sposie but hold well and have a super funky velvet outer not sure if you can get them in the us though but they are incredible!

I don't care for HH.


I acutally love Fuzzibunz the best. I'm suprised to see how many folks dislike them. They fit my DS really well. He has chunky monkey legs.

We had the same experience with those! I wondered if I was snapping them wrong, because the wing droop was the worst I have ever seen. Totally unusable for us.

I'm SO glad its not just me!!!! I am wondering if they will fit him better when he is bigger around? We only have 1 so I'm not overly concerned.

I was really disappointed with Baby Kangas. I want to love them - they're Canadian like me, and I love JamTots - but Baby Kangas + my DD = serious wing droop.

HH prints - loved the prints, hated the wicking. I used the cool dragon print one anyway b/c I loved it so much. I also found that they didn't last when machine dried - they developed holes around the leg casings.

Kushies AIOs - they seemed to hold everything, but fell apart after a few months of normal use.

And Berryplush AIOs (sorry again JamTots) - loved the idea, but they gave even my super-skinny girl red marks around her legs.

what is wing droop? i like my baby kangas so far, esp. with BG inserts.

my kushies AIOs are falling apart too. we've had them for about 2 years though and they were gently used when i got them, so not TOO bad. not great either.

Me too! Tehy are impossible to keep from wicking. They need a border and gussets. I think once a fuzzi bun user sees Bum genius, thirsties or other styles they may realize Fuzzi buns are not so great. I will never buy another one agian. Plus they are not even made in the USA anymore :

DD is very slim, and when the snaps were done up, the inside "wings" (the far ends of the top part with the snaps) would slip down inside the diaper, and then the leg casings would start to gape. You can guess the rest.

I think they've overhauled them since we used them a couple of years ago however!
