BG Freetimes

So the freetimes have been out for a while now, and I am wondering how everyone likes them and how they are holding up? Ive had not the best experiences with the holding up part of BG. These look SO EASY!!! Oh, and snaps are better than the aplix on these right?

Thanks mamas

Re: BG Freetimes

we love them! I only have used the snaps, so I can't speak for the aplix...
thinking about minimizing our stash down to just freetimes and RaR pockets...those 2 are always my first ones I grab for...

I love mine. I only have one so not the majority of our stash obviously. Considering I haven't had good luck with MF in other dipes, this one is easy to clean! Never had any issues!

I do find the layer under the two soakers is starting to pill. I always line dry so not sure what's up with that. That part doesn't touch baby so no big deal I suppose. Never tried the FT aplix, but I don't like the 4.0 aplix and I assume they are the same. We are a snap family for sure.

Re: BG Freetimes

They are OK but I wouldn't replace my stash with them. I prefer my BG 4.0, personally. I am not thrilled with cleaning poop off of them. With my 4.0, I just kinda shake and hold the back if I need to spray off any leftovers. With the FT, I don't like how the flaps separate when you shake and try to spray them. Just not as convenient, IMO.

Re: BG Freetimes

I'm a fan of them! I have 10, so half my stash (other half is Thirsties duo pockets). At first they were a PAIN in the ..... to get poop off, BUT then I learned how to do it properly - back flap over front flap, fold in half to spray (there is a youtube video on how to do it). They hold Lulu all night, but yet are not bulky - her sleepers still fit perfect. I've never ever had a leak or even wicking on one of them. They dry really fast, and *crosses fingers* so far have cleaned perfectly with no problems at all *keeps fingers crossed*. As for snap versus velcro, I prefer the velcro, DH prefers the snap. But when she was waking up at night and getting a change, even DH used the velcro as the matching snaps can be hard to see in the dark.

It's taking ALL MY WILLPOWER not to buy another 6 of them while this sale is on

My Mood:
I just got more freetimes, I love them. I have about 4 in Aplix, the other 6 are snaps. I use the Aplix first thing in the morning because its easy. Before I invested in my stash I bought one used in Aplix to see how it held up. It's doing pretty good. It holds well and isn't very pilly. I wouldn't get my while stash in it but for easy of use at 5am, I like having them.
