That's really funny you should ask this, because my DH is totally confounded by my uncanny ability to automatically remember what soaker goes with what diaper. It is kind of weird. I'm like some kind of diapering idiot savant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
If they are all mixed up right now and you are confused about what goes with what, the only advice I have for you is to sit down some night and see what soaker/diaper combos work best, and mark them like you were talking about so in the future they will all match up easily. You may not end up with the original set, but at least they will fit, KWIM? Or, you could go back to the website you ordered each one from and see what the soaker looks like and match them that way. Sorry, not much help.

I love that! I am the same way. I never miss, either!

I am the very same. I know which soaker goes in which diaper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Diapering Idiot Savants, untie!!! Errr...uh.....unite!

I must not have enough fitteds, or else I have a really good memory. I just know what goes where.<br><br>
My poor DH is clueless about it, though. I have to watch him if he's pulling stuff out of the laundry basket to put a fitted on DD (he usually uses snappi'd prefolds on her), because he'll try to put an outer shell on her without the soaker. Baaaad idea!

Same way. I know exactly which diaper type goes with which soakers. I have roughly 90 diapers, mostly quick dry made by at least 8 different WAHMs. I don't think its any big deal if you mix and match, though... as long as it works. For instance I have some Hippobottomus I got used which came with some weird tri-fold sherpa lay in soaker, so I took a soaker from some too small Liz's Cloth size 1s and snapped them in (luckily same snap type/size) and they work like a charm with an extra doubler.

Many of the Angel Wraps have different colored snaps, so I match them up that way. Otherwise, the only other snap in soakers I have are from SP and the Bunny Patch, and it's easy to tell the difference. I agree -- if it works, use it!

:LOL<br><br>
I only use FMBG fitteds and Terri uses the same color snaps on the inner soakers that she does on the outside of the diaper. I also have snap in doublers for all my diapers, but that's easy because the velour matches <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I love matching them all up after washing... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:
