Q'leros

I know there was a post on here before. They're not as new now, so...Who has tried these? I have read from some people that they are just as trim as sposies, if not trimmer. Which'd be really cool. And someone on another forum said that it's a great nighttime dipe with the doubler. (Though she did say she was new at CDing so she doesn't have huge experience...no leaks though.) I just bought one from qleros.com She's got great feedback on ebay.

So what'd you think?

I'm here I'm here

I do think they are as trim as a sposie, or trimmer dare I say at the upper end of the range :gasp:. We did used them overnight with a birdseye flat folded into the wet zone and their doubler with the fleece that comes with it.
Now we are using fanciful fanny and they do work better overnight but we didn't have leaks with the first they were just SOAKED! (I think we might have been putting a dappi nylon pull cover over top too just to be safe.) However we can't use them for 2 hours without a doubler, of course we can't use anything minus a cover for 2 hrs without a doubler.
I have had a couple with the aplix come lose a little but I have 12 (10 smalls and 2 xsmalls) and we do use them pretty often. I like that the range seems to fit for a long time. The smalls we could use at 10lbs with the cross over tab and till now at 16lbs and growing with a doubler there is still LOTS of room left on the aplix. We can still use the xsmall too but I don't know about a doubler inside I can't remember LOL
I'd like to buy a few more one day ... when we need the next size up.

but make sure you wash them a few times first and use hot water and the drier a couple times, as well as make sure the birdseye inners are tucked inside

good luck!

Re: Q'leros

I'm with nothing_butt_cloth. I don't love them but I don't hate them. I'm pretty sure I will be passing mine down to my sister and a friend (though, their babies are still much too little for mine). The fit is weird on my skinny baby and they are not nearly absorbent enough. To add enough absorbency, I have to make them quite bulky. Plus, they leak like crazy on us...urine and bm's. They're okay in a pinch but the last diaper I reach for, pretty much.
