bge questions

I use a bg freetime with a help insert underneath for overnight. Is a bge more absorbent? I have a belly sleeper too? Thanks!

Re: bge questions

No BGE, would be less absorbent. Both have the PUL strip to help with belly sleepers.

I like the organic flip instead of a pocket diaper at night. No matter what I did wiyh my bg pockets at night they leaked. My kids were all belly sleepers.

Re: bge questions

We use a bumGenius Elemental with a Hemp Babies diaper doubler under the soakers for our night time diaper. For us, this is more absorbent than using a Freetime with a Hemp Babies diaper doubler under the flaps. I've tried both and she leaks out of the Freetime at night, but no leaks with the Elemental!

I think the freetime is more absorbent than the elemental but like the elemental much more when it comes to putting on and spraying

Hmm I think the BGE are MUCH more absorbent than the free time. We have 24 of them, they make up almost our whole stash and were the only diaper my 2 year old couldn't soak through before she potty trained.

Guess I'll be the voice of dissent. We hated our BGEs. They leaked on my LO abd he hated the wet feeling. We use Freetimes and and BG4.0s with a doubler.
