OK I am totally burned out on my cloth diapers right now. I have mostly goodmamas and mutts and we use covers and wool. I'm sick of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
None and I mean NONE of my daughter's clothes will fit over these diapers with covers. We wear wool wool wool and I've had it.<br><br>
I love my wool but I think we have had too much of a good thing.<br><br>
I actually went and bought a huge box of sposies just so I could put my DD in some of her cute clothes for once. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> I hate the sposies though because they stink and leave that nasty gel stuff everywhere.<br><br>
I am seriously considering buying some Dream EZE AIOs to use. Tell me about them. Are they trim? Are they absorbent?<br><br>
Also we have a couple of Dream Eze Fitteds. DD wears a medium on the smallest snap setting. According to the AIO size chart though she would need a size large?<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

I can't speak for dream eaze but we use bumgenius AIOs and my ds cries if I try to put jeans on him! They are just too thick, so we need to buy bigger pants, I guess. They are less bulky than the one-sizes that we have, but not trim as 'sposies!

I bought the Dream-eze AIOs specifically to use as super trim diapers, and I've been pleased with them. That said, I ended up cutting out one of the two sewn-in soakers in each diaper because I found them to be too bulky (and sort of oddly bulky) with both soakers. They are still plenty absorbent with just the one soaker, so long as I change ds at least every 2 hours (which is generally what I do anyway). But they are not that trim as they come. Without one soaker, they are definitely the trimmest cloth diapers in our stash. You'd think he was wearing a sposie when he has one on.<br><br>
They do run a bit smaller than the fitteds because the snap wings are not as long on the AIOs as they are on the fitteds. My ds just barely fits into a medium AIO (with one soaker removed), and he is 16 months old and 26 pounds. The rise is perfect, though. It's small in the waist (my guy is a little bit thick through the middle).<br><br>
HTH!<br><br>

I have several of the Dream-Eze AIOs and I like them. They aren't absorbant enough for us, so I actually have to add a hemp doubler! But, they are still pretty trim--my dd's clothes fit over them....everything except the slim fit jeans (which won't fit over any cloth, IMO). I bought 2 mediums and 2 larges and they both fit well, and have since I purchased them months ago. My dd is 17 mos., 22 lbs and a very average build.<br><br>
I like them ok, but <a href="http://www.bottombumpers.com" target="_blank">Bottombumpers</a> are my absolute favorite. I love them--seriously, love. They are way more absorbant than the dream eze, AND they are trimmer. Also more $$ and hard to get, though, unfortunately.<br><br>
Bottombumpers are pretty much all I use, and when they are all in the pail, I reach for the elbees and a pull on wool cover, which is just as trim <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">. I know, I 'm no help <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">.
