So what's so great about FB?

Just curious... I've never personally used one... but I'm really starting to wonder what's so great about them since in a week alone I've had 10-12 of them sent to me for repairs!

Re: So what's so great about FB?

we used to use them alot bt IMO they are not so great- they are reliable but they make me mad! LOL I find the sizing to be very inconsistent on them and some it is hard to get the insert in because they sew too far in on the dipe. I prefere WAHM made dipes.

I thought that they looked a little different to me when I was fixing some... like the snap placement didn't seem the same on them all. I mean I expect things to differ slightly but some seemed pretty obvious.

I use them sometimes. But they are not my fav either. I prefer HH for pockets.

They fit my skinny boy well, I haven't tried too many other pockets so I don't have anything to compare to.

I don't really like them. The snaps never seemed to be symetrical. They got the job done but I used to have 5 smalls and he could fit into two of them on the tightest setting and the other three he fit to on larger settings (??)

Well, mine never leak. So they work! But the quality really varies and I find the elastic gets stretched out very easily. I have 4 and use them a lot for long outings when I know I may not get to change her.

Re: So what's so great about FB?

I have a superduper soaker and FBs are always reliable. I know if I put him in a FBs to go out he won't leak or wick. Also at night, the FB with a nighttime insert from Leobaby has been the ONLY thing that will keep him dry. Not sure the magic but there is some. They get a for us in keeping my supersoaker from peeing all over the place.
