I know this has been asked a million times but I can't seem to find any of the old threads in the search.<br><br>
What do you recommend under wool soakers?<br><br>
My two nightime fitteds are Motherease Sandies and a Clothbaby. I have a couple LHC fitteds too. I also use cpf's (at night I add a doubler). I just ordered a couple of Sugarplum quickdry hemp so we'll see how those work under soakers.<br>
Is there any "must have" diaper I should be ordering next? I know I've hear fireflys are good but those are pricey and hard to get, although I'm keeping my eye out for some.<br>
I'm starting to love my soakers and seem to reach for those a lot lately. I need more soaker dipes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Just about any fitted diaper works well under soakers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Are you looking for recommendations on fitteds in general? Do you like front snapping or side snapping? Is your baby thin or chubby, etc? How much does your baby weigh?

Abby wears Kissaluvs size 0 mostly. That could also becuase that is what we have most of.....she also has a Jo-Bo's front snapping that we love for nighttime. But pretty much any dipe will work. Just made a 6 layer hemp one that fits great (it should its custom made for her) that we really like too....

I have a couple of kissaluvs but don't like them. Mostly because the rise is too short for him. The other thing I wasn't crazy about was that it soaked through really fast. The entire diaper was soaking (back and front) in just one pee!<br><br>
My boy is on the chubby side. He's in the 25 pound range. So far I pretty much only have side snapping but am willing to try front snaps. I believe the Sugarplums I ordered are front snapping so I'll know better what I like after I get those. I am definitely preferring fitteds. Diaper changes are becoming a struggle (hoping it's just a phase lol). Cpf's are a bit too difficult to maneuver lately. Plus they're pretty bulky. I use them as my "emergency" dipe; when I'm in between washes.<br><br>
My problem with the Motherease Sandies that I'd like to avoid is that the front waistband droops a bit so the soaker folds under in the front. This could be a sizing issue and might be different when he fills out the diaper a bit better, it does seem a little big for him but works great for nighttime soaking so I still use it a lot.

Oh! I forgot about my snappi. I have a snappi contour that I like a lot. In fact, I was planning on getting some more of those maybe. Soooo, contours are good too.<br><br>
I guess my question is really just to get recommendations to try for my next purchase. I like trying new stuff and having a bit of everything.
