Re: The "I <3 Mother-Ease" Thread 2012

On where to buy sandys - motherease has good customer service and gives 1 free for every 12 purchased. Fluffy cheeks offers a % off for DS users. Mothers milk offers sev dollars off each diaper when u order 12 or more. That's a few good options...

The covers really are that great. We have used the Airflows for years. My 9 and 12 year olds wore the ones we have now, as well as ds who is 2. They are still in perfect condition & held up beautifully in storage, too. They are over 10 years old & on their 3rd user.

One thing I really like about the covers is that they never wick around the legs. We use Rikki wraps and wizard duo covers. They are known for never leaking.

Also, I think ME has the best stay dry fabric in all the cloth diapering world

Our cover isn't leaking...it just looks bad (lots of pilling, curling velcro, etc). I'm surprised by this, too, as it doesn't get used a ton and this is the ONLY cover (or diaper for that matter) that has these issues). I must've gotten a bum one. To be fair, it is working fine (less the velcro being hard to stick b/c of the curling).

I find this kind of amazing!

I had a MEAF cover for Sully, but it was too small. I guess I need to get him a L. I think they are kinda goofy and poofy, but in a cool, old-school way.

Re: The "I <3 Mother-Ease" Thread 2012

I can't wait to start using my ME diapers again! Unfortunately I had to sell all my sandy's and most of my airflow covers. I only have M/L and L size covers, and half a dozen MEOS. I loved them as night diapers with my DD a couple years ago. If I get enough money perhaps I'll be able to get some newborn sandy's, they look TOO cute!

Re: The "I <3 Mother-Ease" Thread 2012

One of the main things I like about ME on boys is that there is a bit of room for their parts to not get squished. I know that most people are looking for the trimmest, most absorbent diaper, but I personally wouldn't want to wear something that is all tight and layered up, I would rather my son be comfy.

This is one of the reasons that I love these diapers. I feel like my son is much more comfy in them because it's roomy. I sell anything that remotely looks like it's squishing his boy parts. I use the MEOS fitteds and I love the Airflow covers. I use size large and just close it as loosely as possible to not leave marks. I like the Sandys but the side snaps would leave impression marks on his hips no matter how loose I closed it. If they were not exposed, I would love them too.

I agree that the covers are not that pretty and they are poofy but they are so dependable that it makes up for that. They wash well and are very gentle on the legs. They are simple but do the job very well.

I am actually considering just using the Airflows and MEOS for the summer. I have 2 wool shorties that I'll probably use to alternate. They are so much easier than folding prefolds or flats and using snappis.
