Maybe someone can direct me to a thread where this was already discussed?<br><br>
Are Thirsties Fitteds good? Are Kissaluvs much better? I have 24 CPFs, 2 pockets and 6 Kissaluvs fitteds for my NB. I wanted a few more fitteds, and thought about getting some Thirsties since they're much cheaper. Good idea?<br><br>
Thanks!

I have two Thirsties fitteds. They work great as far as absorbancy, but I don't care for the white flannel. They seem proned to staining. Perhaps this would not be an issue for you though as my dc is a 15 months old nursing toddler and eating solids.<br><br>
My favorite fitted is <a href="http://hyenacart.com/nanasbottoms/" target="_blank">Nana's Bottoms</a>. They are only a bit more than Thirsties, and you can order them with a stay-dry liner and cute prints.

I had some Thirsties hemp fitteds (got seconds at babycottonbottoms.com for about 6 bucks, I think--they're sold out, and I've had trouble finding "firsts" of these dipes!). I really liked them--a higher rise than the KL fitteds, and more absorbant. The cotton Thirsties I liked less--fine, same fit basically, but just not as absorbant. When my DD outgrew her nb stash, I wanted to go to all Thirsties hemp fitteds, but couldn't find them. Then I got BG 2.0s and HPs and now I'm a pocket convert! They just feel so much drier than fitteds... I don't have to change dipes with every pee now!

I really like my Thirsties fitteds. I have 5 of them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have gotten stains but they come out just fine in the sunshine. I think for the price they work great. I also use kissaluvs fitted (and like them), which are pretty but cost more, so I just go with my Thirties.

I have 3 Thirsty's hemp fitteds that I got as seconds from babycottonbottoms too! LOL GREAT DEAL! Too bad they are sold out now... anyway they absorb a lot more than Kissaluvs size 1 do. The fit is decent, not superb. The fit of the Kissaluvs is better on my son but the absorbency on them is the pits IMO.

I wasn't super impressed with my Thirsties fitteds...I only had a couple but not my fave dipe....they didn't hold up well for me in the wash compared to my other dipes even though they were all washed together. I wouldn't buy another one even though they are a good price. If I were going with an inexpensive fitted....I would use the white terry fitteds on bellabottoms....they are $8 each I believe and hold up better and always absorbed more for me than the Thirsties did (although, I used a hemp trifold doubler inside mine so that might be why)....plus they are only a tad more $ than Thirsties and they are OS so they fit a lot longer. haven't tried Nanas bottoms before....I should check those out and see!

Those Nana's bottoms look like a good deal....not much more $ than the Thirsties and you can get a flannel outer or a woven (I'd go with woven since flannel pills)....plus you get to pick what the inside is lined with....not a bad price for a custom dipe either!
