I feel like a flats sell out
I have been using flats only for 2 years, loved them and had no plan to change anything, then my 2 year old started showing interest in the potty and we needed something easier than flats for when we were out and about so I ordered a motherease sandy. That was the start of a very bad week for our budget :blush: they are sooooo nice, and after tiny flat diapered bums I loved the soft squishy diaper. My dd calls them her "whale pants" and doesn't want to wear anything else.

Then comes my next bad idea, I went ahead and tried a small for my younger dd and I'm sold. My older dd hardly ever had a leak in flats and wasn't an explosive pooper, but my little girl was having multiple blowouts a day and we use only wool covers. The sandy got all the poop and nothing on my longies :thumbsup:

So here I am a flats sell out :blush: I used to love them, but I'm really enjoying fitteds now, so easy to use and no more poopy longies.

So from all flats to all fitteds. Eep. Lol

Of course I plan to keep flats on hand too, couldn't part with my old rugged imse vimses's but I sure do like the snap on and go fit of the sandies, so easy my older children or even dh could use them ;)

Re: I feel like a flats sell out
whale pants! lol!

truthfully, your story just makes me want to try them (and I'm prepping 1/2 dozen flats right now... it is a slippery slope...)

Re: I feel like a flats sell out
I hear you! I planned on doing prefolds again, then had some of them converted to fitteds. Yeah...should have never bothered. One Sandy and I was hooked. I bought most of them used, but man I love them. All I use, other than a few prefolds here and there for fun. But nothing beats the fit and poop catching of a sandy!

Thanks for posting, this dd is poo-sploding out of everything (never happened with my other 2). I've been resisting the urge to try some fitteds, but I might just have to.
Do you add a doubler to your Sandy's?

Sandies are awesome and fit for a really long time.

We love our Sandy's for night time. They ate definitely a workhorse.
