Opinions on Swaddlebees AIO

Just wondering what you all think of the Swaddlebees AIO's? Are they still slim fitting?

I love mine. DD wore hers last night with no leaks!! I thought I'd gotten the wrong size when I first got it, but it fits her perfect. I just wish I had more. I don't think they are super trim or anything but they're not as bulky as some. This is dd in hers!

They are nice, not trim though and if you add an extra insert it doubles the bulk. Kinda long drying time though.
Hey what insert do you use for night? I was going to try CB, but it won't fit.

Re: Opinions on Swaddlebees AIO

they are still trim--if you stuff an infant cpf in a sb pocket thats the bulk of the aio!!I love mine & am trying to sale some pockets to fund more I find the fit about the same as a sb pocket.They are very very soft & work great even unstuffed.

The only thing I do not like is they are so hard to stuff....the insert catches on the sewn in micro soaker & its really narrow.I have a very small hand & had trouble.However,I believe the newest ones will be having a bit wider crotch.

The dry time is about 70-90 minutes depending on your dryer but you can turn it inside out to help it dry faster.Mine usually are dry at the same time as my hemp.

too funny your dd was born on my ds bday his is 7/6/05

I love the fit they are very soft inside. I don't stuff them with another whole insert--I usually use a little wash cloth or a happy Heiny stuffer oval up in the front for extra absorbancy. The drying time is very long--that is the biggest draw back for me. I love the trim fit--and leg elastic holds everything in (we have the sz large and my kids are 25 & 35 pounds...)

I stuff with a microfiber towel (from Target) that's fold 3 times. So it's skinnier and easier to stuff works great!!!

Re: Opinions on Swaddlebees AIO

I use the swaddlebees hemp insert and 2 daisydoodle doublers for night. And dd can be a heavy wetter. We usually make it to morning but if I don't change her as soon as she wakes up we get side leaks (not that I don't change her morning dipe first thing but we cosleep and sometimes lie in bed for a little while before we get up or I have to go to the bathroom first KWIM).

For day time I don't stuff it. Overall I really like it and turning it inside out helps the drying time.

Anyone know when there will be more colors and velcro available from the retailers?

great fit, but not absorbant enough for a heavy wetter, hard to stuff if you have big hands, and slow drying

Re: Opinions on Swaddlebees AIO

I love ours and I dont usually stuff it. It holds up fine and even kept in a very runny poo today! I have stuffed it with a JB and that worked great and still very trim. The only downside for me is that I dont like that it feels wet on the inside...for that reason, I dont usually put it on when we go out in case I cant change him right away.

If you turn it inside out, I find it dries in the same amount of time as my other diapers (all AIOs).
