I'll bump it up for you but I went and found it and she had updated and said she adjusted the rise and said it was less bunch and was hoping once the cotton shrunk that it would work better. I'm going to bump the thread and ask for an update. (Seriously, I have no life these days)

Its okay, we have had a slow week this week and I have spent way too much time overanalyzing these diapers that I probably will never have the chance to buy I thought I read about that but I don't remember pics of it.

I'm thankful for this board so I don't feel like such a nut.....although at least other people obsessing over this diaper still have babies in diapers......I don't even have that (I do have a hope that one day I'll have another LO to diaper).

I guess that's not a big deal to me because my most recent diapering experience was with a kid who demanded to be changed immediately upon peeing. Like, I'd take off the diaper and the pee was still hot. Lol! So there's no time for bunching if you can change right away, you know?

But I also am just not that worried about the TPU side of PUL touching skin. Skin touches things.

Re: So who actually likes the new elemental?

I know skin touches things........just if I had my choice, my skin wouldn't be touching PUL, it would be touching soft cotton and it was bunching when dry too. I've also always changed my babies as soon as they wet but sometimes (especially while out and about).....it may wait for longer then a few minutes. I was just pointing it out in case people didn't know and some didn't. I know I'm not the only one who is worried about exposed PUL sitting on their baby's skin.

If I was to have another baby (not very likely) and had the $, I would strongly consider buying only a 24 pack for an entire stash. I'm boring like that.

I did actually briefly consider getting a few but I just can't justify anything beyond Flips and prefolds or flats for an 18mo who may PL early. I loved the old style Elemental and I am definitely a fan of Flips, so I while I'm disappointed with certain changes I am sure they will still be great.
Is the PUL exposure the same in the new BGE and a Flip cover and insert? It would be no more or less PUL exposure in the new BGE than those that use flats and covers for example, right? Or am I totally off on this?

That's what I was thinking. No different than a padfold or trifold in a cover, though I can see why some don't like the exposed PUL.

Yes, I do understand the PUL exposure too for some. It just seems lots of people like Flip covers and flats or Flip inserts . . . maybe people will grow to love this too (if PUL exposure is actually the same). Although, cover and flat users are usually a whole different group than AIO users so not sure you would get anyone to convert

Re: So who actually likes the new elemental?

im definitely going to try one. hated the design of the last cause I knew it would get holes or leak cause there was no protection at leg binding. BUT it seems this is way less fabric than the flip insert. am I wrong?

This is what I was trying to say. Im interested to see what happens with the AIO users and if they end up loving it. Im a covers flats mama so of course I think it looks cool. But Im a covers flats mama so I won't spend that amount of money on it either. lol
