AIO suggestions

We use mostly PFs, flats and flips around the house. I have 12 pockets on hand for easy diaper bag options and for DH. I'm not a big fan of them though. I think they are bulky under clothing and I hate MF.

I'm thinking of selling them to fund some AIOs. I know BG Elementals seem to be popular. What other options are there that are trim? I like how the elementals have the flap for quicker drying and less prone to stink.

We had the BG 3.0s AIOs before and they took forever to dry and we had stink issues.

Re: AIO suggestions

I haven't tried them yet but grovia's are supposed to be similar to BGEs. The pink (cosmos) and blue (ice) are discontinued colors and you can get them buy 2 get 1 free right now. They are also cotton and the soaker is partially detached so it's supposed to dry quicker as well. They are side snap instead of front snap if that makes a difference.

Re: AIO suggestions

I love my BGEs but they take a while to try, most AIOs with a sewn in soaker will take a long time to dry. I also really like Bottom Bumpers, sized or OS, and Tot Bots-some MF but I havent had any problems since it is so thin. Great design and very daddy friendly.

I didnt care for grovias fit. Almost to trim for my liking.

Re: AIO suggestions

I really like AIO also (so easy for a quick diaper change for a baby on the move!) I am loving my bottombumpers fitted and ragababes
hoping to score some cheap Tots Bots to try also!

Re: AIO suggestions

Nana's Bottoms. We had them for the nb stage & loved them. So cute & soft & trim. I just bought a couple mediums from FSOT for when she outgrows the small aios we have (which are BG's, no stink issues so far but I dry them outside in the Texas heat, inside out).

I also have a BGE that I like & use occasionally but it does take forever to dry (I line dry it then fluff it in the dryer). We use Flips at home, too, with the aios for the diaper bag.

Have you looked into bum-ware? Not too pricey and they just came out with OS too

Re: AIO suggestions

I love BGEs, but they do take a while to dry. GroVias are great too!

Re: AIO suggestions

I love my BGEs! I don't have a WHOLE stash only because I line dry, and it takes a little longer than pockets, so i need something for my ds to wear while my BGE's dry haha but all aio's take awhile to dry too. I tried grovia on my son.. they fit soo small...very narrow in the crotch, almost like a thong! I didn't like them at all!

Re: AIO suggestions

Oh, I thought the BGE had a flap thing that makes them easier to dry? No? I have no idea where I got that in my head

Grovia fit like dreameze, right? We tried those and they left super deep red marks in LO's thighs.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into some of them

Re: AIO suggestions

I like the BGE's but I LOVE the sized 3.0's better! Will have to look into Nana's bottoms. I really prefer a sized AIO.
