What else should I try (sized AIOs)?

I used to be a pocket girl, but I'm wanting to switch my stash to AIOs. During this pregnancy I developed a condition that causes chronic fatigue and dizziness, so I'm no longer line-drying (plus, it's just harder to find the time to do that with two LOs!). Since I'm drying in the dryer anyway, I'm loving AIOs and no longer having a crazy pile of miscellaneous inserts to match up.

So I'm switching my stash over. I have 12 or 15 Thirsties Duo AIOs in size 1, but (sob) those are those not going to last forever. DD is long and lean and we're about maxed out on the rise. But she's only 13 pounds so I worry that size 2 won't fit for a while???? I also have a few sized Blueberry Basix, and I love the prints and the way the tongue comes out for faster drying, but DH doesn't like side-snapping, and frankly neither do I. So what else would I like? I prefer sized, and I prefer stay-dry, and front-snapping. I also like the ability to stuff for extra absorbency. I know people have problems with the Thirsties leaking, but I just add a Kissaluvs booster if we're going out.

TIA!

Re: What else should I try (sized AIOs)?

We have been using the itti bitti d'lish. They have an all in one, or a snap in one which we love. You don't need to unsnap the inserts.. just fold them in. They are made from organic cotton and bamboo so they are really absorbent, and have a stay dry top layer. The rise is pretty low, just to give it a trim fit, but the large fits my 10 month old 24 lber, and my 2 year old 35 lber. No leaks, and they dry fast. We love them! I used all the d'lish diapers I had in our inventory because I liked them so much :/

I love the Itti Bitti D'lish Snap in One, but the AIO is nice too. Super soft, stay dry, minky outer.

Re: What else should I try (sized AIOs)?

I just ordered an Itti Bitti d'lish in medium and a one-size Tots Bots from Kelly's Closet. And I threw in another Thirsties AIO so I could get a free one size diaper and qualify for a $30 GC. Totally justifiable purchases, right?

Thanks for the suggestions! Keep 'em coming!

Have you tried Tots Bots? They are not sized, but I really like them on my baby and think they will fit well for a long time. I also like the Thirsties and will be sad when my LO outgrows her size 1s! The Tots Bots function like an AIO/Pocket combo. I haven't tried the new ones, but the V2 are amazing!

Do BGE's fit like the 4.0 pockets? We're having terrible wing-droop with those right now (says the woman who doesn't like side-snapping, ha). I figure we might need to wait until she's bigger for those.

Nana's bottoms or Drybees. They are all sewn in, but I thought they dried rather well. I use the dryer most of the time anyway.
