|M's diaper drawer - this is all BumGenius 4.0s or Rumparooz |
(RaR's are the bright yellow and purple on the middle left)
Another of my favorites right now are Grovia's hybrid diaper which is a shell (or cover) with a snap-in insert. I like these because they are definitely trimmer than the pockets but probably not quite as absorbent. There are different inserts you can get for these - organic cotton or hemp & I have both; however, I definitely prefer the organic cotton. For some reason, the hemp ones seem to be the ones that cause leaks if there ever are any. These also have the choice of hook and loop or snap closure. I only purchased the snaps because of my issues with the BumGenius (BG), so I can't tell you how the Velcro holds up, but I've heard it's very good! Also Grovia's have the option of using disposable inserts for those times when you need the added convenience or have to battle diaper rash. The disposable insert is not as absorbent as a disposable diaper which seems like they can suck in anything, but it's nice knowing that it's made of renewable resources and doesn't have the nasty chemicals of regular disposables... I use these sometimes when M has a bad diaper rash and I want to use a non-safe cloth diaper cream like Desitin or A&D to treat it.
Fuzzibunz one size pocket - I really like the trimness of this diaper - it is less bulky between the legs which is nice however we've had a hard time sizing it right and seem to get leaks. These not only have a resizable front like the BG's but you can also resize the elastic around the legs and in the back. I really want to like these but just haven't gotten the hang of it I guess.
Baby Beehind bamboo fitted - M is a very heavy wetter, so I had to try a few different things to get a system that works for me. I bought one of these and put a wool cover over it as that was a system that was suggested to me by many people. I thought it worked pretty well, but M seemed to begin waking up during the night needing changing, so I don't think it's quite absorbent enough for her. Love the diaper though - think she just outwets it!
The Sleepy Sheep wool cover (over Baby Beehind fitted for overnight). This took me a long time to try as the wool intimidated me for some reason but it was really easy to care for actually and did work pretty well. I didn't fall in love with it like many seem to but maybe it's just because my daughter is such a heavy wetter. This brand is from a WAHM in my town so I don't know if other brands would work better or the same but this is what we went with - no longer use it though.
