I ordered my Fly to the Moon set back when I was hit with a surge of hyena frenzy. By the time the order was ready, I was somewhat soured to the whole hyena experience. So, I trimmed my order down to one hemp fitted, no sidewalls, b/c I just wanted to have one to try. Laura thought a medium would fit my chunky DD. I was skeptical.
When I opened the package, I thought for sure this tiny dipe would not fit. But when I put it on....WOW. This diaper could not have fit her better if Laura had come to my house with her tape measure in hand. This is by the far the trimmest, best-fitting diaper I have ever tried and I am SO IN LOVE WITH THESE DIPES!!
Now, of course, I'm kicking myself every day for cutting down my order. In all honesty, I would love to have a whole stash of these dipes, and replace my ME OS with them as my "workhorse" diaper. They are so trim, I swear they are no bulkier than a disposable. They are truly that amazing. They are also absorbant. But alas, I really can't justify buying any more diapers right now. So I'm just going to have to have another baby!
I haven't had any problems with not having sidewalls, but DD is eating solids and has somewhat sticky poops. I think I would order sidewalls if diapering a younger baby. And what she says about size on her website is very true. These diapers are designed so well, I can see that they do last through a large range of weights. I think smalls and mediums would be all I'd need to diaper from newborn up to toddler. I can't see my DD getting any chunkier, but we still use two snaps per side on her medium diaper.
If I had to stretch for a "con" to these dipes, it's that I do find they take a bit longer to dry than my other dipes, but it's a very small price to pay for the quality, fit, and absorbancy.
Oh, and can I just say that her website is one of the prettiest designs I've ever seen. It's easy to navigate and just....well, beautiful!
