Re: If I had known...
The Simplex are my least favorite AIO. I don't like the birdseye inner, it's all bunchy and hard to put together. It leaks. It's HUGE compared to my other newborn AIO's. I'm glad I only bought 2. For my little guy, who was under 6 lbs at his lowest, fitteds and covers work the best.
But I'm with you, I hate prefolds. I was convinced I'd love them with #3, and then I realized I hate them, lol. I have trifolded them on occasion for #4, but they are not absorbent enough, and leak. I really love fitteds, though.

All these places have their moments with lovers and friends I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living. In my life I've loved them all." John Lennon ~For my dad, whom I will miss dearly.
