Cool I am really liking the new FBOS! Pics inside! :)

I decided to give pockets another go just so that we have an "easy" diaper for other family members. I got some of the clearance BG 4.0s and really like them but after reading that the new FB elites get really tiny I decided to get a few.( I was also looking for an "easy" option for our newbie on the way and I knew the BGs wouldn't be small enough)

I am using the FB elites on my 23 month old and really like them! They are so trim and I really like the way they adjust. I can get a really good fit on him and they do get really tiny too! They will definitely fit my newbie! (usually 8.5lbs)
The only thing I would change about them is the way the pocket opening is. I really prefer the way the BG pocket opening is. The FBs are really trim and narrow in the crotch so it looks like it is more comfy for my LO w/o all that bulk between his legs. He's worn 2 so far and no leaks either! Great diapers.

Here is a pic of my guy in one:

Do you find them hard to stuff? I have two, one red and one light blue, and the inside PUL is so sticky that I find it really difficult to stuff the inserts in. I am trying to put both in, maybe that is my issue? Do you use both inserts?

They are harder to stuff but with the PUL being sticky it keeps the insert from shifting so there are pros and cons.
I am using both inserts.

Re: I am really liking the new FBOS! Pics inside! :)

I totally agree, we LOVE the new FBOS, we switched our entire stash to them when they came out and are VERY happy with our decision. In regards to the stickiness of the PUL when stuffing, try not to let your nails touch the PUL, it helps ALOT, they slide in MUCH easier. We stuff our diapers after the wash, so the extra few minutes it takes to stuff them really doesn't bother me, the inserts stay put and never shift because of the PUL...

Re: I am really liking the new FBOS! Pics inside! :)

I also love the FB Elite that I just got. It is super trim and sooooo soft. In love. I don't find them hard to stuff - but could not see my hubby doing it as they are super narrow. I have small hands and its a bit of a squeeze for me. Although the minky inserts are much nicer to stuff with then MF - which just feels so gross on my hands anyways.

I love them and we use a lot of these with my guy. The only negative for me is that they are hard to stuff.
