Re: So what's so great about FB?

I never had leaking problems with them, but once I started building up my stash of diapers, I became less and less impressed with them. I can say that they hold in bf poop very well though!

Re: So what's so great about FB?

Funny you should ask. I have a love hate relationship with them. They are very reliable, never leak and fit my son pretty well (petites), but they do seem to vary a lot by size. I think the quality is consistent, but the sizing can vary quite a lot. I still use them and buy them because they don't leak. There are cuter WAHM diapers out there, but it's hard to beat the 1 ml PUL that FB's uses. I also find the front wrap very effective for a boy, no LEAKS!

Personally I didn't like them. The fit was wonky and we tried M, PT and L. I couldn't find an insert that I liked that fit in them for anything either. So I sold mine and now I'm a wool convert .

However, I did LOVE my medium HHs! Just sold those because DS outgrew them but would use those again in a minute!

They work great for us, my son is a heavy wetter, and the rise works wonders for us too I plan on getting more, when I get the money but I also want to try other stuff out too.

Really? I'm sorry to hear that, mama! Next to FBs, FFs are my fav dipes for DS and we never had any probs. I can even use them overnight (12hrs).
