I hated Happy Heinys. They leaked from the beginning. Despite being my least favorite, and least used diaper, the elastic wore out very early on. When I emailed them about a diaper replacement they offered to "fix the elastic" Which only made the diaper work worse than it did in the first place. Other companies (such as BumGenius) that I have contacted about diaper problems, offered to replace the entire diaper. No questions asked. I just never liked my Happy Heiny, and their customer service made me dislike them even more.

I think they've overhauled them since we used them a couple of years ago however!
ohhh ok, i know what you mean. i hate that but that only happened when DS2 was quite a bit younger. he's a very big boy at 5 months and it's not really an issue now.

I thought I would love PFs, and I really dislike them!!! DD got red bumps when wearing the PFs for one day. I guess it's from the pee staying next to her skin versus being wicked away.

I actually love my BG 3.0s! I don't dry mine in the dryer (just the inserts), so maybe that's why I've had luck with mine. But I haven't been using them that long, either. DH even loves them.

I disliked the BSWW covers. They are just too stiff and I didn't like the fit around the legs. I loved the Thirsties covers best of all. Great adjustable fit. Love the leg gussets. I have two Litewraps covers and these fit a little weird, too, and are stiff. I'd only buy Thirsties from now on as far as covers go.

Swaddlebees newborn fitted.
I had one of these because I bought a few diapers to check out when deciding what to do for our newborn stash. I loved this diaper but couldn't justify the price so we went with Kissaluvs before DD arrived.

The swaddlebees fell off DD every single time. I have no idea how it kept coming off, but it did. I'm so glad I didn't base my stash on these.

Am I too late to join in?

Dh says anything with velcro. They were fine themselves but it wears out too fast and they are scratchy and come open.

Myself - BG's - the original ones from about 3 years ago and I am not too fond of the Kissaluvs contours, although I like the fabric and got a fitted and really like it. Also, I've been drooling over Sugar Peas Wool covers for years and finally bought one and I am so disappointed. I got a medium when my daughter was only 3 months and it was too small around the thighs, cutting into them, and they leak when compressed so I can't take her out in it either.

i cant really say ive tried anything i hate yet... i guess the closest ive come to "hate" is the bg 3.0 . and really it was just that i was disappointed with the velcro wearing out. the fit and everything was fine.

wanted to add that i always hand washed these and hung to dry. we don't have a washer so i hand wash my pockets and covers to make the wash loads smaller.

Oh no!

I'm in the middle of planning a newborn stash, and Swaddlebees fitteds and Sugar Peas were going to play a major role! Guess maybe I'll just buy one of each and see.

You know, I've been using my BG 3.0 for as long as they've been on the market, albeit not in heavy rotation, and I have never, ever had a leak, or had the velcro get messy on them. Maybe they just haven't been washed enough to ruin the velcro.

I'm not really a fan of AIOs. I am much happier with a regular old prefold covered with a bright Thirsties.

I really don't like the bumgenius one size. the velcro ripped in the middle of the diaper. they always makes a diaper chain in the wash. I also didn't like the kissaluvs fitteds. cute colors, but both products gave my kid the worst rashes and didn't fit right or feel soft after being washed. big waste of money. I use only prefolds and good quality covers now. we will be usein gmore wool covers with the next baby.

The ruffles around the legs always sneak out from under the cover and cause pee seepage.

I also hate snaps.

I hate how Happy Heinys inserts always stick out and can rub against baby's skin.

Also, I'm surprised that a lot of people dislike BumGenius one size diapers. I have the velcro ones for more than a year and while not in new condition, they work perfectly. I love the snap ones more. I like snaps in general because my daughter can't rip them off yet.
