Or all
?!?

I never see anyone post any downfalls to OC or OV... are there any????

Just curious! I personally have never had any OC dipes or felt any and I hear I am really missing out!!

well, I just got my custom order of 6 organic short velour inner & outer loveybums, and they are DELICIOUS. I absolutely, positively, haven't ever felt anything as nice as these dipes in my life
I wish I could wear them. It wears really well, I have a pretty old OV loveybums that looks great. Again, IT'S SO SOFT!


So if it's a love/hate relationship, I'm def. in love!

I
our organic velour and organic cotton fleece Sugarbums. I find them to be just as absorbant or MORE than the hemp ones. We use them for our nighttime diapers.

My organic cotton fitteds from Valor Kids are the most absorbant fitteds we own! They're soft and trim too. I used to have a organic long velour mammamade that was super absorbant also. I love love love OC/OV and haven't bought many hemp dipes since I started loving it. Hemp gets too stiff and of course, the stink factor.

I think the absorbancy varies--some of my OC are as absorbant as my hemp--others are not at all! I like it because I'm terrified of hemp stink--and some is softer than others but even my "roughest" oc is softer than my hemp.

good to know VKs are so absorbant! We need that. I have an oc/ov custom in the works.


I just wish thar ov would arrive already! We are down to a minimum stash since dd is busting out! (I had to size u p my VKs to meds....at 8wks she's at *least* 10 lbs if not more)

baaaaaaad time of year to need dipes. there are several stores on the oc list (
to the mamas who did that), that are closed and one reply was she was backed up.

LOVE our organic cotton. Have not had a chance to try organic velour but may be able to with our Elbee order, a long long long time away...

I much prefer OC to hemp, it's so much softer and has more "give". I find it to be just as absorbent, if not more, than hemp... don't know why all the fuss with hemp's absorbency... I'm actually getting not to like it as much, although our precious RB FLAGs are hemp and I can't give those up. Hope she introduces OC eventually!

our OC/OV dipes are awesome in every way! no stink, very soft, very absorbant. if i HAD to list any negatives i'd say maybe only that i find any cotton item to shrink a bit more than hemp, and possibly attract any dyes that might bleed more than other fabrics (i say this having just noticed a few red spots on some of my OC/OV dipes this washload...they didn't come that way and i most likely threw in something red. but it's not anything i can't fix). anyway, it's not like shrinkage is excatly a negative...it's to be expected w/any cotton fabric, IMO. i just wash/dry accordingly.

you don't hear negative stuff about OC/OV because they ROCK!!!

I thought that Ann was waiting for oc. I thought I saw on her site that she was waiting for it when she opened up for customs or something.
I *totally* want some FLAGS now, is that what is the next step after FLAM? I'm thinking I'll be able to find stores wide open now with mamas trying to pay bills!
We need dipes!

Ok, so yours was in the first batch and yeah, what I saw was she's waiting on more when she opened for customs last. She did order more.


just please save me some


seems like OV, in particular is taking off! Seems like more and more WAHMs are offering it. I appreciate them listening.
There are some WAHMs offering it in the future too!
