I'm looking for two new diapers:<br><br>
1) For the diaper bag - an AI2 or a pocket but NO synthetics (laundry issues). I need to stick with natural fibres, preferably not hemp. I don't mind doing a pocket that I can stuff with prefolds, or an AI2 with a PUL cover.<br>
I'd prefer something with a large size range and very absorbant, as baby is only 7wks and around 11lbs, but is already a really heavy wetter.<br><br>
2)Fitteds.<br>
Again, baby is soaking through her infant prefolds really quickly. I like the Sandy's we have, but they are really bulky. I'd like something all natural fibres, around the same price as the Sandy's (ie cheap!).<br><br>
I'm in Canada, but have a chance of buying some things to try that can be delivered to a US address if I can get them there by the beginning of next week!<br>
Thanks!

Since you like the Sandy's, how about the Mother Ease one size? It will be a bit bulky but will keep fitting better as your little one grows. It's less "poufy" than the Sandys though in how it fits. I'd recommend getting the snap-in doubler since you have a heavy wetter. I've also seen these on craigslist and such sometimes which might be a good option for trying it out cheap.

I heard the one-size isn't nearly as absorbant. Right now, I'm using the Sandy's with the doubler as my night-time diaper. I haven't tried it during the day without the doubler, but with my other kids I always needed the doubler during the day or it wasn't nearly absorbant enough.<br><br>
Anyone like the dream-eze fitteds and aio's?

My AI2 recommendation would be SoftBums with the bamboo inserts! Love ours, and the adjustable elastic system for the one size is awesome.<br><br>
For a fitted, what about Tiny Tush OS organic cotton - they also have a hemp if you want. I think they work better and are more trim than my DreamEze...although due to rebranding you could find some DreamEze right now at great sale prices.<br><br>

What about the Bamboozles from Bummis, the size 2 is good for 10-35 pounds and works great with either the Bummis Super Brite or Super Whisper Wraps. DD is 9 months and I don't have to chance her in the middle of the night... and her diaper is a good 5 pounds in the morning, lol.

I LOVE the Dream-eze fitteds (haven't tried the all in ones). They're a great day time diaper for us and dry really quickly. I love the way the snaps work on these - no leg gaps!<br><br>
I also use the Growing Greens (one size) quite a bit. They would need an extra liner for a heavy wetter.<br><br>
Anyone know where to find the dreameze on sale right now? I need more mediums.

I've used the one size for my baby (she is now 11 months) and it is GREAT - we use it overnight with the snap in liner - no leaks EVER. I'd try one - I use the bamboo material.<br><br>
Also, for going out I use the Bum Genius AIO - I find it SUPER absorbant and real easy to change.<br>
that's my recos - I'm in Canada too but got the BGs via a US addy for real cheap from Cotton babies.
