Diapering > Favorite cotton AIO?
AKislandgirl's Avatar AKislandgirl 06:03 PM 09-06-2009
We pretty much use prefolds and a few fitteds. I'm thinking of trying out some AIO's (mostly for DH!). I don't want to use synthetic fibers. Do you like the Dream Eze, Sposo Easy, of BumGenious Organics best? What has been your experience with these? Am I missing another kind of cotton AIO? DD is long and skinny if that makes a difference.

TIA!

no necssarly most poular or fun but I hnestly loved out Alltogerther deluxe AIOs I bought mine VERY used from a local cloth diapering service the insides were kinda torn up from sooo many washings (years worth) but I got them for like $2 each so was willing to try.. They worked fablously LOVED them.

I voted Bum Genius organic AIO's b/c they are my favorite... but I also love Dream-Eze organic AIO's - they are really trim, but I think either would fit a tall, skinny kid. I would get more than one kind to see what you like.

BG organic AIOs are also my favorite, but I haven't tried the other ones. The aplix ones are discontinued, so they're on sale most places too

i like my bottom bumpers. theyre technically an ai2, but the inner lining is cotton so you dont want to re use it.. the soaker snaps out but im not really sure why for the reason i just stated, lol. there is a bamboo velour inner which may be a consideration, i know some people aren't into the bamboo because its processed. i do want to try the bg organic aios too though!

SposoEasy for me: Made in the USA and great size range: small is 8-20lbs., medium is 19-30lbs. and they have a medium long

I haven't tried any of those, but I'm interested. We did like the Reuzm Elite AIO's with dd.

i loved bottombumpers too. i also used dream-eze AIO and liked them, though they were a bit bulkier then the bottombumpers.

Sposoeasys do NOT fit my skinny kid. They gape on the legs and leak. I voted Other--my faves are Imse Vimse. They do have a bit of microfiber so might not meet your requirements but they do. not. leak. Very trim, come with snaps or velcro and the IV velcro is excellent.

Second favorite are BG Organics, very trim, very absorbent but not as nice a fit as Imse Vimse and you have to be careful that the legs are rolled so you don't get wicking.

My favs were Baybee. I also like the birds-eye Very Baby's too.

We also liked the older style Bumkins.

I love Sposoeasys - we've had ours for 11 months (size S) and they're still going strong. At this point (DD is 15 months, 19lb) the absorbancy isn't as good as PFs but she'll be moving to size M soon. Fit has been great but she's short and round! The main benefit has been the cotton fabric - MUCH easier to care for than microfiber.

Another vote for Very Baby AIOs. They have been workhorse dipes for me! Great fit, super cute, and very reliable.

I got my sposoeasys only a month ago, but I already love love love them. My girl is 16 mo, 19 lbs and long and skinny and they fit great on her and we haven't had any leaks. I washed mine at least 3 times before using them to prep them, and also the way they're made, you can tuck the front wings into the back and that totally prevents any wing droop which keeps the legs snugger. Just the other night, she fell asleep in a sposoeasy before we could put her usual nighttime diaper on (fleece liner + prefold + microfiber and/or terry/hemp doubler), and Not One Single Leak! To top it off, I usually change her at least once in the night, but I was so tired that night, I didn't. NO Leaks

I was going to post on the other thread, about which diapers would you have if money wasn't an issue, because sposoeasy would be it for me. I only wish I had discovered them before I bought my pockets.

Those are all good choices. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. Why not buy some of each and try them?
