Bge, grovia aio or grovia ai2? or swaddlebees?

Which would you pick, and why, for a almost two year old boy who is tall and average build and a semi heavy wetter?

If you have pics of your toddler in these id love to see them.

ETA: what if swaddlebees simplex were thrown in the mix?

Re: Bge, grovia aio or grovia ai2?

The Grovias have a lower rise- DD is tall for her age and she grew out of these before she grew out of her BGEs. She started PLing right after 2 years old, though. I'm not sure how much longer they would have fit her.

I think that the Flips are a little bit bigger than the BGEs, so those with the organic insert might work best.

BGE's. Ds outgrew the Grovia's ai2's at 12 months & the AIO's not long after. The BGE's are very absorbent for days & nights.

BGE's for sure. Grovia tend to run a bit small, IMO.

My vote is for BGE as well they absorb more and rise is longer than the Simplex OS I have both and the BGE is sized more generously and fits my 2 yr old better than the simplex OS

I hated Grovia Ai2s. I thought the covers were poorly made.
We switched from BGs to Capri covers. I've been using zorb/bamboo inserts

BGE don't have the OS simplexes but the sized ones run small and Grovias have a somewhat low rise

geesh it sounds like none of these will fit. i tried grovia AIO and BGE today and both are too small. Well BGE fit now, but not much longer at all.

My 30 pound 3 year old fits in a GroVia snap shell with the stay dry soaker, they fit more generously than the velcro.
