Grovia fit like dreameze, right? We tried those and they left super deep red marks in LO's thighs.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into some of them
Th BGEs do have a flap, but they still take a while to dry

Re: AIO suggestions

Grovias are super trim. Probably my trimmest diaper. I've only owned mine for 3 months and I like them well enough but reviewers have said they have problems with the elastic wearing out overtime. I don't have a problem with them drying in one cycle in my drier either and if they do come out a little bit damp then I just leave them laying open on my changing table and that usually takes care of it. They do fit smaller though so its a bit weird at first but thats a good thing if you like trim.

Re: AIO suggestions

itti bitti d'lish - all in one or snap in one. Personally I love the snap in one because I have the option of unsnapping the diaper for a fast dry cycle. And carrying just the insert in the diaper bag takes up less space than an AIO. Our generation is lucky to have so many awesome diapers!

Re: AIO suggestions

our stash is mostly OS AIOs.
easy, easy, easy.
we use BGEs which we like - they have a flap, but it's sewn on both sides so it's attached but flaps out for easier drying.
we have the grovia but it just doesn't fit our LO well
we have some kissaluv marvels which we didn't like at all - wicking and wing droop issues
we have a totbot which works well but hubby doesn't like having to stuff the tongue back in
we have an envibum which are cute and minky. have more OTW
we have totwraps which we love, love, love.
we put everything in the dryer (we live in Oregon!) so can't speak to non-dryer drying times, though

Re: AIO suggestions

I don't like one-size diapers, because they tend to be much bulkier. My whole stash is BottomBumpers side snap sized dipes. With the snap in soaker, they dry really quick. Super trim. And they work great for us. I highly recommend trying them!

They aren't one size but I really love our Motherease Uno AIO's. They have a cheaper intro offer on the ME website.

Re: AIO suggestions

AMP stay-dry AIOs are rather nice and trim i don't like AIOs as a rule because they take forever to dry, but these are a hundred times better than the kushies ones i tried. so much more comfy feeling and just nicer overall.
www.ampdiapers.com

i have (and love!) their pockets. try ordering some of their hemp or bamboo inserts for your pockets, they're VERY nice and absorbant, don't stink, easy to use/clean.. i put them in my Happy Heinys pocket diaper because i couldn't stand microfibre. in my humble opinion, they're the best of everything.. more absorbent than cotton, less repellant than microfibre, and very easy to wash and dry since it just unfolds.. it takes about the same time to dry as my prefolds. and no stink.

might be a good compromise for you if you otherwise like your pockets.

Re: AIO suggestions

ps. i don't know if it matters to you, but AMPs are made in canada, and except for their microfibre, their fabrics are also made in north america.
