BG Freetime vs. Tot Bots Easy Fit

Anyone have an opinion on these two? I would especially like to hear from those who have tried both. I want to simplify my stash and only have 2 kinds of diapers (a good aio or pocket for daytime & MEOS with wool at night).

I'll tell you my hold backs on both diapers...

The Tot Bots seem great. Only thing is I don't really like stuffing pockets. Mostly because I'm a little ocd and always think I didn't stuff it right. Some diapers, like the lone HH I have, are a pita to stuff. Are these easy?

Now for the Freetime, these seems perfect except I'm wondering if they will be good babysitter diapers?? I would get the velcro ones but for some reason I'm scared the inserts would be folded in some weird way that the microfiber would touch baby's skin. I could just tell everyone how to use them but I'd rather have a self explanatory diaper. Are these easy for those that don't know about cloth diapers?

Thanks for listening to all of this!

I'd say Easy Fits because I've heard that Free Times are hard to spray off but I haven't tried them. I don't think Easy Fits are very hard to stuff because everything's attatched, but I'm not very particular about it. Easy Fit Aplix is amazing too! Do you need stay-dry or prefer natural fibers?

Re: BG Freetime vs. Tot Bots Easy Fit

How old is your child? I found that the Tots Bots were not absorbent enough for DS. You must line up the insert in the pocket or I got leaks, we also had issues with the velcro rubbing DS. The free time is really easy. They lay in a way that makes it self explanatory. Its also really absorbent. I don't have any issues getting them clean.

His is 16 months. Thanks for your input! This makes me lean even more to the freetime diapers.

Ditto on the absorbency and leaks with the Tots Bots. They are very trim and squishy though. I like the freetime a lot, but it is not as trim as the Tots Bots.
