Will I regret buying BG 4.0s?

So I ordered my very first BG's yesterday and am excited to try them out. DD needed some diapers for daycare and they have such a great deal on Cottonbabies right now that I couldn't resist. I bought 7 (Buy 5, Get 1 Free, plus Free Bubble with $75 purchase) and I'm seriously considering ordering another set of them while they are still on sale.

Should I wait until I get my first set and then decide? I always hear such great reviews on BG's so does anyone not like them?

FWIW I'd be comparing these to our Tots Bots which I LOVE!!! I know the aplix won't be as great (never seen aplix that compares to Tots Bots) but I'm hoping these will give us a trim fit on my skinny DD.

No, I don't think you'll regret your purchase at all. Most people love BG.

Even if you do, they have great resale value! I don't personally like them, but I think I'm a minority on here.

I'm not a fan of their aplix. I have a 4.0 and a freetime and have had two very different experiences regarding quality so I have mixed feelings about bgs. As pp said though LOTS of people love them, so I wouldn't worry too much.

I love them! You'll probably only regret that you'll want more I'd say get a batch of snaps, LOVE the snaps on the stretchy tabs.

BG 3.0 were my entire daycare stash. they held up great. I loved them/DH loved them/and daycare loved them. They fit till DS2 PT at 3, 33lbs, 34 in tall. (he is stalking build). Personally I thought the aplix held up great. One set was almost 3 years old and still going strong. I plan on using them for the next babe too.

This! I have used BG since the first batch of 1.0's came out. But let me tell you, my whole world changed when the 4.0's in snaps came out. I didn't think I needed them, but my best friend bought 4 of them for our newest baby. Now I want 2 in every color for her!

BG 4.0s were our DC stash when I was working FT. They are fantastic diapers!! I would deftly buy 6 meier (or 12 more ). Just don't open/unwrap them until you've tried your first batch, though. Then you can return them for just the shipping cost if you hate them. I think you can actually return the first batch too, within 30 days if you really dislike them (assuming you bought from CB). I love the diapers but most of ours are snaps...their aplix leaves a whole lot to be desired. I would highly encourage you to buy mostly snaps.

I love Tots Bots (most of my stash) and I also love my BG 4.0 (they make up the rest of my stash!)
