Swaddlebees simplex OS vs BGE or freetime?

If you were going to spring for 6 more diapers...would you go for swaddlebees simplex OS, BGE, or freetime? I already have BGE and freetimes and pockets but I want to add a few extra. I am going to be unable to wash but once or twice a week...give me your opinions

If you have BGE and BGF and like them, why not try the Simplex? On the other hand, why mess with something that's working for you? Sorry, that's not any help!

Re: Swaddlebees simplex OS vs BGE or freetime?

I just sold my BGE and ordered 3 simplex, they came yesterday and I liked them so much I ordered six more right away!
They look better and seem to be comfortable for her. I really like that you can add a doubler if needed. I have the sized and I think they will fit nicely under clothing but they are almost too cute to cover up!

I've never tried the OS Simplex, but BGE and FT are going to be somewhat similar (same cut), so why not try something different and go with the Simplex? Did you see the sized simplex (side snapping) are on sale?

Re: Swaddlebees simplex OS vs BGE or freetime?

I saw the sized but I hate the idea of buying selling and buying more. Dh has told
Me this is our last baby so I have no reason to save dipes for another child kwim? I just really likes the idea of being able to do the cotton or micro fleece against skin so if you see a sensitivity they are changeable

The medium lasts FOREVER though. My DD is PLing and still fits into it with plenty of room to spare. Just food for thought!

Re: Swaddlebees simplex OS vs BGE or freetime?

I'd do Simplex as well Apart from the fact that I'm a sucker for a cute print, I really like how they fit and they dry faster than BGE. I'm not a fan of microfiber, so Freetimes don't appeal to me all that much. Happy shopping!

I like the idea of the micro fleece liner too but I didn't really want to pay extra, I thought I would see how her skin is with all cotton and if needed use a fleece liner, so far she's been ok and she's super sensitive.
My DD is about 26lbs and the larges will fit until we are done with diapers.
The reason we didn't go with BG Freetime is because of the microfiber, they look interesting though.
The simplex Dry faster than any AIO I have tried so far which is a huge plus!
