Please Help Me Decide

What to buy! I think the lack of sleep lately is making me totally indecisive. I have two DSs, one 4 months (Rian) and one 18months (Brady). Brady's stash is complete. I use wool, 6 toddler pfs and 12 kissaluvs w/ doublers (just a kl is not enough absorbancy) for him. He also has two fbs for going out. Rian has outgrown his infant stash. I had him in pfs and bsww during the day and fbs at night. Now he is way too big for the infant pfs and the premiums I saved that were Bradys are too bulky on him but I'm trying to make them work. Rian also kinda sorta fits in Brady's size 2 kissaluvs- we are usually putting him in those and a pair of Brady's longies. But I only have 12 size two kls- so not enough for them to share. And the longies are too long. I still have Rian in the small fbs at night and they are leaking every night. I need to do something fast but I hate making hasty decisions so if you could help me make one that would be great.
Some other things: I like my kls but don't want to buy anymore as they have worn a lot in the 9 months I've had them. I like my llamajamas but they too have worn too much in the two months I've had them. I love fbs, but am wondering if I should try bgs, so both boys can wear them. DH is a wool freak (ok so am I!).
Thank you so much if you got through this whole post!

Never had BGs so cannot help you there, but how about premium prefolds? Both boys can wear them and you will get a long life from them. You could use a snappi or pins to fasten if you have longies or pull-one wool covers.

Hope this helps!

I love pfs- they are my favorite diaper. I think I might go get some thirsties premiums! Thanks! Any suggestions for longies?

You could try a few kinds of fitteds off the FSOT to see what else you like. I haven't used BGs, and premiums are too bulky for my ds too. Medium fitteds might fit both boys...?

They probably would. Their waists are pretty close in size b/c my 18 month recently thinned out as he got taller. I really l ike the thirsties pfs- so I was thinking of trying their fitteds too.

I say go to FTF (Fair Trade Family ) on HC for longies. She has great prices, excellent costumer service and a decent turn around time. Just email her regarding customs.

I was going to suggest placing an infant trifolded inside your premiums (or get some Thirsties), that'll make them last a bit longer and help "fill" him out and fit into Premiums a bit better (also may want to try a different fold). Once you get wool you could still use your FB at night if you wish with the wool over it, sounds silly but a lot of us actually do that. I don't do OS dipes so I am not much help there and we don't get the best fit with our KL1's so we won't get any KL2's.

I do am a prefolds and wool gal!

Re: Please Help Me Decide

You ladies are the best. Thank you for replying so quickly. I never thought about using wool over the fb that is a little snug to make it last. Awesome. Thank you!
