What to try next?

I want to buy a few more AIOs for out & about with DD... I like the BGE's for this, but I'd like something stay dry. Fleece liners shift around and bunch too much for my liking. I've got a couple of inserts ITW/OTW to try out as well (grovia staydry doublers, and ME staydry/cotton liners), but it would be nice to have something for DH to use that doesn't require a lot of extra parts... just pop it on the tush and go.

Looking for something with a trim fit, narrow through the crotch, stay dry, and natural fiber soaker. DD is a bit of a heavy wetter, but the BGE is absorbent enough to last her a few hours while out. I don't have a preference anymore with snaps/aplix. I like the idea of the AIO because unstuffing a soggy pocket after it's been in the wetbag a while just isn't appealing.

Does this diaper exist?

You could do the itti bitti d'lish SIO (sized diaper with bamboo and suedecloth topped) or the itti bitti tutto (one sized diaper with bamboo and suedecloth topped)

I know you want stay dry -- the best stay dry I've tried is Rainshine Designs, but they are hard to get.

My best diapers are everything you want but stay dry: Bottombumpers and peachy greens. Their natural fiber soakers do the job. The fact that they get wet doesn't seem to bother baby one bit.

I really like the new bumGenius Freetime! It's really easy to use (even my husband thinks so) it's stay-dry, very absorbant, pretty trim (about the same as the Elemental) and it dries really quickly on my drying rack in my house. We absolutely love them!

I'm curious to try the new (to the US) ones & twos AIOs. They're economical, seem really trim, and have cute colors. The only drawback is that they're microfiber.

Swaddlebees one size has a stay dry layer. It's an aio with cotton. It's pretty narrow through the middle although I think that the simplex 2 is narrower. It doesn't have a stay dry layer though.

Re: What to try next?

The only one I can think of with natural fibers and stay-dry is Simplex OS AIO. I love 'em, but they are pricey. I guess another option would be stuffing a hemp inserts into a pocket like Sweet Pea, Thirsties, or Smartipants that don't have to be unstuffed. HTH!

Okay, so I think I'm ready to buy a few AIOs. I'm going to just use stay dry inserts or liners to get the stay dry I want, instead of finding a dipe with it built in.

Of these dipes, which is the trimmest, narrowest but still decently absorbent for a moderately heavy wetter?
- Bottombumpers
- Peachy green
- Swaddlebees simplex 2.0s
- Bugga Bugga boutique

I'd like to try RSD but they're a bit more than I'd like to spend, especially since I'd like to buy 3-4 dipes.

I tried out a grovia shell, and the fit is just odd on DD... if the AIO fits anything like the AI2, I don't think grovia will work for us.

Posting from my iPhone, hope it's legible
