Please tell me about Swaddlebees Simplex..

I keep hearing HUGE raves about these diapers... Im an Elemental Snob but after hearing all the rave about them they sound great!!

Could someone tell me the fit and sizing of these. My DD is 16months and about 21-22lbs ...Ive heard that they run small so would Larges fit her best?

Are the new ones sized differently and what is different about them vs the first version (which i know some are on clearance)

TIA!!

I love them! They are side snapping. The insert comes out in the washer so you don't have to take the big "tongue" out. They are pretty trim, about as trim as BGEs. I would for sure order a large. My son is a slender 22 lbs (long) and amost a year old (cry) and they fit him perfectly. Very absorbant, but of course you could stuff with a small hemp/bamboo doubler. IMO, they have some of the cutest prints out there.

Re: Please tell me about Swaddlebees Simplex..

my dd is 19 pounds and is in size medium on the middle setting in version 1. havent tried 2 yet. i love them they are trimmer than the elementals. absorb a decent amount without stuffing anymore in them and they dry much quicker than bge.

They are All in ones. They have an attached soaker and a pocket opening for faster dry time. Oh dry time, I should have commented on that. IMO, they are a pretty fast drying AIO (it's all relative ya know), they dry faster than BGEs, but probably not as fast as AIO with microfiber.

Sorry, I'm not firmiliar with TBs.

Re: Please tell me about Swaddlebees Simplex..

I am debating getting some of the OS Simplex instead of more BGE in hopes that they will last longer (the cotton). I hear BGE get holes fast so maybe the birds eye cotton in the simplex wont How are your simplex os (or regulars) holding up?

I only have the side snapping simplex (sized). I'm curious about the one size though, but I don't like front snapping dipes (I use front closure dipes but only velcro).

I'm curious about how long they last two, sorry I haven't had mind long enough to know this.

Eh...I didn't love them and just sold them actually. I hated the outer PUL, it felt and looked cheap to me, functionally they were fine though.

I know what you mean- it is a littke slicker on the outside as opposed to fabricy. But thicker than many other brands.
