Has anyone here bought any of these dipes? If so, what did you think?<br><br>
I just *love* the teapot prints and the pear prints!<br><br>
I've never tried an organic diaper, but these look pretty sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm digging the gussets! Do they require any "special" care, or can they be used and abused right along with all my other diapers?<br><br>

I think someone mentioned those before on here, but of course I can't remember who it was or what they had to say! I just recognized that adorable little baby on the diaper page. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> They look nice to me and the gussets are a big plus, imo. You should be able to wash them like you would the rest of your dipes... I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to.<br><br>
If you try one out, be sure to give us a full report! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod">

I just got a natural organic diaper and its really nice and soft, but it is really big! I think I got a large and the waist is too big for my 24 pounder. I've only washed it once, though, so maybe it will shrink more. I really do like the design of the diaper, though. She also sent me a doubler and a wipe to try and they are both incredibly soft too!

Unfortunately, this problem with size seems to be a problem with organic sherpa. Ask me how I know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: ... The fabric is so dense and stretchy that it causes the diapers to run a bit big. I'm currently working on my problem, but just doling out some answers to why it may be happening. IOW, maybe size down?

Yah, I was a little disappointed that it was so big <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> And the crotch is a little wide but not excessively so. However, I expect gusseted diapers to have a very narrow actual crotch width (you dont need a lot of width in that area if you have gussets)<br>
I was going to return it and get the next size down but I put it on Dylan to try the size out. He literally had it on for 30 seconds and peed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> So I'm keeping it.<br>
I may try to alter it a bit with some extra snaps to get it more snug in the waist.<br><br>
Agreed on the stretch of organic sherpa. It really needs a middle layer of french terry or something to reduce that stretch.<br><br>
Anyway..its hard to guess by weight. Dylan (22mo) is about 26ish lbs, maybe a tad more, and has a thick waist. Alex (3) is over 30lbs, but thinner than Dylan, so this diaper would probably fall down to Alex's knees

Thanks! I'm thinking I'll have to get a size smaller than she normally wears... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
