Question Tell me about BG Elementals

I tried cding with DD2 when she was an infant and we had to stop due to reccurent yeast infections (we think she was allergic to the diaper service detergent). Now I pulled out the Fuzzi Bunz one size diapers to use at night and low and behold they worked well and I am now thinking about getting some all in ones to use when we are at home. DD2 is in daycare M-F so these would mainly be for holidays and weekends (and DH will probably just use sposies).

So what makes these any different than the regular 4.0s.

For just mainly weekend use 8 diapers would work, right? I have 5 Fuzzi Bunz right now.

Or should I try something else?

DD2 is about 22lbs.

My dd is 26ish pounds and I love them for her. If I was doing it all over these would be the only diaper in my stash (past newbie stage). My dd is 18 months and she usually goes through 6 diapers a day so I'd go for 12 but I tend to go overboard. Using only on weekends though you'd be able to line dry - they take a while - but they'd last for a long time that way.

They're different from the 4.0 in that you don't have to stuff them and they're cotton not microfiber. The only think I don't like at this point is dd needs a rise setting between the medium and large right now. But I don't mind because they work so well, don't leak for us, and do not leave red marks.

Yeah they are super easy, but dry slow. I line dry all of my covers (anything with pul in it), and they take 2 days to dry. Pockets dry QUICK and I throw all the liners in the dryer but you have to stuff. Still love both!

They are our favorites and most of our stash. They do take a long time to dry, but that is because they are SO absorbant. We find them to fit from about 1 month old all the way until potty training and even on my 1mo he can still fit nicely in his regular size clothes. They are very trim. I prefer them to the 4.0 because I hate stuffing pockets and I want natural fibers. I go through about 7 per day including nights for my 21mo and about 10-12 diapers per day for my 1mo. I would go for a dozen of them if you want to use only those.

Re: Tell me about BG Elementals

I am most likely just going to use them on the weekends and when daycare is closed. I work full time out of the home although my DCP has done cloth before and is still agreeable to it, but at this time I think it's best to try them out at just home. We have Fuzzi Bunz at night.

Favorites here too. DD is 25 or so lbs, 18 months, but I've loved them on her since I first tried them at 5 months.

They are our favorites too. They are all we use besides flips at night. They dry in an hour on medium heat with a large towel in our dryer. I tried the 4.0's but didn't like the suede cloth or how wide the crotch was.
