Can someone explain BG Elementals to me?

They seem super popular...and super expensive. But I see them FS with HOLES in them all the time...and they sell! I just don't get it...

Are they really that wonderful? why?

The organic cotton is very nice the OS option is too. I prefer the GroVia AIOs over these though and they are two dollars less per diaper.

Some people love them. They were ok but the fit on DD2 was poor and she hated the wet feeling.

I think the appeal is in organic cotton with a fast drying soaker.

1/3 of our stash are BGE's & we love them. The OS feature is nice, they're SUPER absorbent IME, & easy to use (no stuffing or cover required).

I don't think I want to try BGE. I wish they hadn't discontinued their other AIOs.

I have a couple and it certainly isn't fast drying. It takes me 2-3 days to hang dry it, or 50 mins in the dryer, with another 12 hours to hang dry. How long it takes to dry is one of the main cons of this diaper.

I do really like it though. It's super trim, fits my son well and we can only use natural fibres on him, so it gets a lot of use in our house. I haven't experienced any holes or anything yet.

Re: Can someone explain BG Elementals to me?

personally we love them. Since I have been in nursing school full time since DS was 5 days old DH was the main diaper changer. He preferred BGs so thats what I got for DS. We had used them previsouly for DD too, but she leaked more. They have been heaven sent for DS. He doesn't leak, and they fit him great. They also hold up really well. I don't mind paying a higher price for them since I know I can resell them for around 9-10PPD each. I stocked up on them when I found a great deal, and it was totally worth it.

I forgot to mention we only used the sized AIOs.
