On eBay- has anybody tried these? I would like to try one or two, they are very cute and very inexpensive. Just curious if anybody has any experience with them. Thanks!

i bought some in NB size after reading good reviews somewhere BUT i have since then learned that lots of moms say they wick quite badly. i am sure others will have something to say but they seem less than popular here and i would guess their re-sale value is limited but maybe folks would buy em up on ebay. the NB ones have super cute patterns though and i am not sure i can part with em until i am sure they leak/wick!

I have 2. Got them on ebay cheep. OK is the rating I use them short at home times never overnight or out. DH is tall and the rise is a bit short on him. I do use the LL TD hemp fitteds and like them.

Do a search for them. You'll find plenty of info, good and bad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Also, read the reviews here and at Diaperpin.<br><br>
ETA: They've actually been around for quite awhile. I started cd'ing 2 yrs. ago and they'd been around awhile then.

They worked great on my ds when he wasn't a heavywetter, but on my newborn dd they wick pretty bad. It could be because her legs are chubby and I can't snap the leg snaps, but I still love them because of the cute prints <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Hopefully my dd will grow out of being a heavywetter and I can get more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Funny, I never had any wicking/leaking problems with mine, my only complaint was they are bulky.

They work, eh ok on my guy. He's not a heavy wetter by any stretch of the imagination, and if the soaker pad is spread out and not folded so thin, they don't wick so badly (so he's peeing directly on the absorbant cotton rather than the microfleece). They are rather poofy looking, even tho he's on the last snaps.

These actually comprise the bulk of my stash for my 3yo. I just take it knowing that hidden PUL will wick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br>
But it's easier to get him into a clean diaper when it has Blue's Clue's, or Bob the Builder on it. Also, in a pinch, I can use them on my 6 month old.<br><br>
I did pick out the front elastic though, and dried them on hot once to re-seal the PUL, so that may help.

I had some that I used quite a bit and I never had a problem. I always thought they were pretty cute too. They are so inexpensive you could try one out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I got two off of ebay a few months ago and they took a while to figure the fit out, but they work fine so far for us. I had my 4 week old asleep in one for several hours with out a problem today.

Little Lambs aio's actually saved me from going to disposables b/c ds had reached the very squirmy, wormy stage and would not tolerate putting both a cover and fitted on. They are so fast to put on, very cute and I even got him involved in chosing the prints we bought. He loves to pick out which one he is going to wear next. I use all kinds of soaker types as well as the LL ones, like infant prefolds, flats, whatever is handy. I don't bother to even snap in the soaker so it just drops in the pail easily and I put the covers in another pail, which IMO is much easier than fishing out the soaker from a pocket.

I just got some and I hate them<br>
1) they are butt ugly. The note on the listing "inner micro color may vary" did not lead me to believe she would put poop brown micro on the inside of a pretty sage PUL outer *hurl*<br><br>
2) they do *not* fit my chunk very well at all. Its like they dont fit well around his waist, but are super poochy in the crotch (rise much too long?)<br><br><br><br>
I bought them knowing full well the past issues they've had but figured..cheap, I'll give 'em a try. I learned my lesson and will stick to what I know, and what I know well.
