Re: Just for fun - 20 Q's Survey - All your favorites!

1) Favorite AIO- Simplex 2.0

2) Favorite AI2 or Hybrid System- Never tried one

3) Favorite Pocket- BG

4) Favorite Fitted- MEOS

5) Favorite Prefold and Flat- GMDs for both

6) Favorite Cover- Pretty big fan of Dappi pull-ons, actually

7) Favorite Wool Product- The shorties and longies I've made with the Ladybugz Farm pattern

8) Pins, Snappis or Biongos? Pins. I've been wildly disappointed with both Snappis and Boingos.

9) Favorite inserts and/or doublers Hemp Babies Little and Bigger Weeds

10) Favorite wetbag/pail liner- Wahmies

11) Favorite cloth wipes- Gerber

12) Favorite WAHM shop- CJ's is probably the only one I've ever patronized.

13) Favorite Online CD store- Wherever I can get free shipping. Recently very impressed by Kissed by the Moon

14) Favorite Natural Detergent- 7th Generation

15) Favorite Mainstream Detergent- Tide Original

16) Hook & Loop or snaps? Snaps

And a few more questions just for fun

17) Why do you CD? Saving money (and I still maintain I actually have), keeping carcinogenic chemicals off my babies' bottoms, and they don't leak like sposies do.

18) How many LOs do you have in diapers and when did you first start CDing them? For the next few weeks, I only have 1 in diapers at night, and none during the day. But ask me again in a few weeks.

19) What diaper are you REALLY wanting to try next? Fancy Pansy covers

20) If you could only pick ONE diaper for your entire stash (not counting the newborn stage) which one would you pick? Either pfs or Simplex, as long as I'm allowed to keep my hemp doublers.

Re: Just for fun - 20 Q's Survey - All your favorites!

1) Favorite AIO--Thirsties...didn't use them very long, but I did like them a lot

2) Favorite AI2 or Hybrid System--Bumstoppers without a doubt!

3) Favorite Pocket--Sunbaby

4) Favorite Fitted--I really loved Mutts and Thirsties when DS3 was a newbie. Never used any bigger ones

5) Favorite Prefold and Flat--Bumkins. I use them as inserts and LOVE them!

6) Favorite Cover--Again, I really liked Thirsties, but haven't tried much

7) Favorite Wool Product--never used wool...too intimidated by the wash process

8) Pins, Snappis or Biongos? never tried any of these

9) Favorite inserts and/or doublers--prefolds!

10) Favorite wetbag/pail liner--I have one Planet Wise liner and one WAHMIES...I like them both equally. My wetbag was custom made and I LOVE IT!

11) Favorite cloth wipes--I have some flannel ones I got off FSOT here years ago. They still work so good and I have no interest in buying anything else

12) Favorite WAHM shop--BUMSTOPPERS!!

13) Favorite Online CD store--I've only every bought from Smartipants and I was pleased

14) Favorite Natural Detergent--never used anything but Tide

15) Favorite Mainstream Detergent--TIDE!

16) Hook & Loop or snaps? Snaps, for sure!

And a few more questions just for fun

17) Why do you CD? I started because they are cute. Now I do it because of the day to day ease and cost (or lack thereof). I like that even if we are flat broke, I have diapers for my babies!

18) How many LOs do you have in diapers and when did you first start CDing them? 2 in diapers fulltime, plus 1 who still wets at night. I dabbled in it when ODS was a baby (4.5 years ago) but didn't CD fulltime til DS2 was born (2.5 years ago)

19) What diaper are you REALLY wanting to try next? FB XS, Swaddlebees Newborn Simplex, FB OS, Swaddlebees OS Simplex

20) If you could only pick ONE diaper for your entire stash (not counting the newborn stage) which one would you pick? As of now, my Bumstoppers.

18) How many LOs do you have in diapers and when did you first start CDing them? My son was CDed from 2 months through a little over 2 years old. He's unfortunately in sposies now at 2.9 years because I thought he was gonna PL and we fell into the sposie rut when he didn't We also have another boy due in September that we plan to CD from birth (god willing).

19) What diaper are you REALLY wanting to try next? Tons! Funky Fluff, Swaddlebees Capri, BG Freetime, Thirsties Duo AIO to name a few

20) If you could only pick ONE diaper for your entire stash (not counting the newborn stage) which one would you pick? For older babies or OS, I'd say bumGenius Pockets. For newborns I'm loving FB XS and Bummis Covers and Prefolds, but we'll see!!

16) Hook & Loop or snaps? SNAPS

And a few more questions just for fun

17) Why do you CD? -- MAINLY: not generate a bunch of garbage, not spend as much $$ (in theory... LOL); secondly: I LOVE it and think CDs are super cute, but I did not know I would feel like this prior to starting, so the main reason is to prevent generating garbage

18) How many LOs do you have in diapers and when did you first start CDing them? -- ONE, he is now 3 and still in CDs. I started as soon as he came home from the hospital, when he was one day old.

19) What diaper are you REALLY wanting to try next? -- trainers or undies I've been sewing our own Trismsies training undies

20) If you could only pick ONE diaper for your entire stash (not counting the newborn stage) which one would you pick? -- HARD QUESTION! I like to have daytime diapers/naptime diapers/and nighttime diapers. If I could only have ONE, I would have pocket fitteds sewn from the new Fishsticks pattern "Green Beginnings" LOVE the fit, it's sized and super trim; has snaps, can be stuffed differently for day, nap, or night; I would go with EmotiBums fleece covers over it cause we can't use PUL
