Someone who has on of her pocket diapers help me out here. I just got one of the hemp and an AIO. I opened the package and they are so tiny. The label says MED/LARGE but I really can't imagine that these would fit my 25 pound son. Also, I can't imagine using the hemp at night. Are these things like those washcloths that expand with wetness? :LOL Fill me in!

:LOL Only laughing because I got some used Harleyz in the mail yesterday and I said oh. my. goodness. There is NO way these will fit! They looked like smalls to me but I tried one on him this a.m. and it fit! The tapes even cross over a little in the front. I was amazed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Try it; you'll like it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I got one on the TP not too long ago. Having used Daisy Doodles, I wasn't too freaked out by the small look out of the package, but it certainly is the tiniest of my pocket diapers. It fits great, though!<br><br>
I think you could use it for nighttime with the right stuffing. I'm not too much help on that, as I only have one Harleyz hemp pocket, but the seller sold it with what was described in the listing as a "heavy wetter" insert--hemp & microfiber trifold. That thing fits in the narrow pocket, but it is thick!!! It could work at night, I think, if dc isn't too heavy a wetter.

My 25 lb DS wears his harleyz at night with the basic hemp stuffer it came with. I just fold the stuffer down in the front for more protection in the wet zone.

I was quite freaked when I got my first Harleyz in the mail. It fits my 19 lb baby just fine and I also tried it on my 32 lb 4 year old. Fits fine, though I don't know if it could handle a 4 yo bladder. I am still working on the stuffing.

I said the exact same thing when my first one arrived yesterday. Even hub looked at it and mentioned it's a good thing we're having another babe to grow into it. It looks like a Speedo on my 30 pound Moose, but fits great <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Ha! Exactly what I said too. I have a 27/8 lb boy who is round and I thought no way. But it fits with the wings meeting exactly in the middle of the front panel! Wow!

Harleyz fit great! Shan uses Lastin elastic so it has a nice and gentle stretch, fitting over almost every type of baby, slim or chubby. I stuff it with two of their hemp inserts, as I have a heavy wetter. Works great, no leaks as of yet.

It really will fit! It actually fits my 30 lb DD on some of the tighter snaps. I wouldn't use it at night, but my DD can saturate a VB Simply Night with the extra stuffing. I use an extra FM snap-in insert (obviously not snapped to anything <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) along with the insert that came with it.

Yet another mama amazed with the Harleyz here! I stuff the hemp ones with two birdseye cotton flats at night, and it works fine for my light wetter 15mo old. And the best part, no hemp stink, because no thick hemp inserts!

:LOL That's how I felt when I got our "tryout" Harleyz a couple of months ago. I looked at it and said, "you've got to be freaking KIDDING me, there's no WAY that'll fit." But of course it does, perfectly. It really is one amazing diaper. Now if Shan would just stock some more custom dyed hemp outer/dyed OV inner pockets...hint hint hint...(does she ever post on mdc?)
