Suggestion needed

I really need some help. I am just about finished my diaper trial and need to purchase diapers to convert my 7 moth old full time to cloth. The diapers I tried are ok but not what I want to buy. I am thinking of buying some Softbums, Thirsties duo diapers and Kissaluvs Marvels AIO. Please give me your suggestions. I am not set on these I just need to buy asap. TIA

Just wondering -what dipes were in your trial and what did you like and dislike about them?

Yeah, we'd need to know this before giving you suggestions on what else to try

I'd stick with the Thirsties for over night. So many mama's have a hard time finding a good night time dipe solution... if you have one that works stick with it!

I'm not sure what about the FB fit you didn't like but we had the same trouble and have had great luck with HH OS pockets.

I would go with the Thristies Duo if you like the fit of Thirsties. And stick with anything that works, especially for overnight

Re: Suggestion needed

If you liked the concept of an AI2 like GroBaby but not the fit, other options include Softbums (which you mentioned), Bestbottoms and Flip.

I agree with PP -if you liked the Thirsties fit you might like the Duo pocket too.

I haven't used the Marvel AIO so I don't know about that -sorry. If your DH liked the BG AIO, why not stick with those?

Thanks Ladies. Is there anything different you would suggest I try or stay away from? I am open to all suggestions. If it helps my son is 7 months and long and skinny.

Yeah, if thirsties fab were working for overnight, stay with that, or add to your stash for night time with a thirsties duo. SoftBums are really awesome, I haven't tried grobaby to compare but I really like the convenience of the SoftBums. I sell both Thirsties and SoftBums.
