I'd love hear reviews on Megaroos sized fitteds and AIOs..Action pics a plus :)

So, I finally got around to getting my things listed on FSOT. It's about 1/2 of my stash so I'm looking to supplement my stash with a handful of extra diapers. I've been looking at the Megaroos sized fitteds and AIOs. I read tons of raves on her prefolds but I don't see much about her fitteds or AIOs. I love her ETPF but I'm wanting something I can just snap on. My DS is petite and about 28-29lbs and I prefer sized diapers.

I'd love to hear reviews from anyone who has the fitteds or AIOs. Are they absorbent enough for a heavy wetter? If you've used MAR ETPF, is the absorbency equivalent to those? I just listed a bunch of the Ultras which have that extra layer of absorbency from cotton velour and those work fine.

How is the sizing? My DS is over the weight limit for the medium but I'm thinking the large may be too big because of his build. He has about a 16" rise.

Are they trim and fit well under regular clothes?

How gentle is the elastic? My DS gets red marks super easy.

If you have action pics of either diaper, I'd love to see those since they are always very helpful.

***Megan, if you see this post, I noticed that there is an exposed snap on the snap in soakers, are you able to put the velour over that so that there are no exposed snaps on the inner?***

i have a nighttime fitted by her and love it.. my LO uses 2 of the 3 inserts and never soaks through. It has a nice but not bulky fit. I can take a pic tonight.

I find them to be true to size, i have a 21lb 1yo who wears a medium with plenty of room to grow. I find her elastic to be comfy too.

I have 40 ETPF by her, some of each kind she offers. I think they are comparable to them in absorbency if not (much more) absorbent. mine is snapless so no idea on the snaps being exposed but im sure you could always get covers for them. my lo rise is 16" too and i dont find them to be too low.

Thank you! I LOVE her prefolds but I'm just at that point where I want something easier that I can just put on and not deal with a Snappi. More absorbent is even a bigger plus.

pictures?



the only thing i *dis* like is there is some gaping but i know its because there are so many layers within in the body of the diaper that causes it (ive experienced it first hand when making them).. BUT the fact is the volume this diaper can hold makes it null n void because its so wonderful otherwise.. if nothing else at least you know its gentle elastic


i think it looks *too* low because i had put it on a little high in the back, its not normally so low in the front

hows that for a snazzy pin job

I can't speak for the fit of the sized because I use her OS but I can say that I find them VERY absorbent, very soft, and very easy to snap. If I could have an entire stash of the OS fitteds I happily would and I definitely plan on ordering more once tax money comes in .

Nice pinning. I can't pin a diaper to save my life. For a night-time diaper that isn't bad even with the gapping. When I used cloth at night, I always had gapping on most fitteds but with a good cover it was never an issue. Hopefully the regular ones won't gap because it's less layers.

I like the look of the elastic. It doesn't look all cinched up like most diapers and seems gentle.

Thanks for the pic!
