Not So Good Anymore When Your Baby Gets Bigger
on March 2, 2008
I LOVED these diapers---AT FIRST. They are very absorbant still. They are way, way less likely to leak or blow out than landfill diapers. However after 7 mos the first one we got doesn't fasten very well. The velcro has not held up. Sometimes when we lift my daughter up one side comes undone under her clothes. There is also lots of pilling next to the velcro, even though I always use the laundry tabs. It's ugly. Also, my tall baby is 9 months and 20 pounds, and we already have the diapers unsnapped to the biggest setting. I thought I was saving a lot of money getting these. especially since I would use them for the next baby, but now I don't think they will last until potty training. I got a few other brands to try, and so far I like the Happy Heinys One Size because it snaps out into a bigger size. There isn't a flap to keep the insert in the Happy Heinys, but it hasn't been a problem.
I whole heartedly recommend cloth over landfill diapers. Just buy a few different kinds to try for a while instead of a TON of one kind that everyone likes. Most of the recommendations are from moms who have not been using them for very long.
