I need to supplement my diapers for my son who's about 16 pounds (and 8 weeks old!) I'd like some sherpa fitted in around the $10-12 range. Right off it looks like a few brands fit this criteria: Kissaluvs, Bitty Buns, Heiny Huggers, and Loveybuns. Anyone have experience with more than one of these and have some advice to give?<br><br>
Thanks!

The only ones from your list that I have used are the kissaluvs. They have a short rise, so bear that in mind if your baby is tall. I don't find them terribly absorbant. You might also want to look at MJ's and Sammy's-one-size, which can both be found at <a href="http://www.thebabymarketplace.com" target="_blank">www.thebabymarketplace.com</a>. I think they fit better than the kissaluvs and you can get the MJ's with either snaps or velcro.

Thanks jest, I'll check out the ones you mentioned. I have read that Kissaluvs aren't too absorbant, does anyone have an opinion on Bitty Buns, Loveybuns or Heiny Huggers?

Loveybums are the most absorbant ones! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I've tried Bitty Bums and wasn't impressed at all. They run really small and aren't very adjustable and are quite bulky though absorbent enough. I really like the ones I got from <a href="http://www.angeldrydiapers.com" target="_blank">AngelDry</a>. Mine have a 2 layer internal soaker of microfiber which works fine for my 25 pounder. She makes them with a 3 layer internal soaker of microfiber for about $13.50 each but that includes shipping and insurance. These diapers are the most adjustable that I've found and fit a broad range making them more economical since you don't have to upsize as soon. HTH!

I have tried kissaluvs and heinyhuggers. The heiny huggers are more absorbant due to the extra layer of sherpa inside. I LOVE fitteds. I have prefolds pockets and fitteds and the fitteds are by far my favorite.
