I love them because they are trim and absorbent. Two of mine did get tiny holes but Cotton Babies exchanged them with a receipt, no questions asked.

Re: What is it about BGE...

I like them because they're trim but I never use mine. I like DD to have a stay dry material next to her skin. Honestly, mine have been just sitting here for a few months. Maybe I should list them FSOT.

So trim and soft! I wish I'd gotten them earlier. For four months I stuffed pockets with microfiber... I shudder at the memory. No more stuffing!

Is the OS an issue? At what size did they really start fitting well? And what are they made of?

I seem to have a love hate relationship with my BGEs. They are trim and absorbent but I hate how it's not stay dry.

I think they are pretty trim for a OS and fit earlier than other OS dipes, but of course the older the kiddo the more trim the dipe. I love that they are super absorbent, cotton, and trim. I would think you could use these around 12 lbs, maybe a bit sooner. They are awesome and reliable dipes.

The only con IMO is that they take a while to dry. Not a big deal to me since I wash/dry at night, or leave outside all day. They aren't stay dry, but we dont need that here.

They are made of organic cotton, definitely worth getting one to try.

Like others, trim and absorbent. These are my most dependable diapers. I never have to worry when we're out in these unless I accidentally leave it on too long or I forgot how much dd had to drink. It's the diaper I've consistently used since I began cloth diapering too, I always stick with it.

I really disliked them (and couldn't understand why everyone loved them) until DD was about 9 months. That was when she fit into them beautifully and they were trim on her. Before that they were pretty bulky on her. Not bad bulky....but not AIO trim. They are organic cotton and that's why I LOVE them. I'll take natural fibers over stay dry any day of the week! I change DD every time she's wet so I don't need stay dry.

Well these might be something to consider for when dgs outgrows his small Nana's Bottoms. I already have some medium NB too for him, but a OS might be doable at that point. My dd doesn't want to use them while he's small.
