Couple of questions about the new Totsbot easy fit

I am considering these because of their fast dry time.

How do they hold up to heavy wetters?

When will US retailers be getting more? - I would love to try both aplix and snapps but can only find snaps.


Thanks!

Re: Couple of questions about the new Totsbot easy fit

DS is nearly 22 months and we do fine with them during the day for 3-4 hours, but I don't trust them for naptime or at least not without adding a little something extra (like one of my old newborn pocket inserts). Incidentally, no trouble with the attached insert or a doubler unstuffing themselves in my FL'er like some complain about. I have both old bamboo and new minky and don't notice much of a difference between the two. We are kind of at an awkward place with fit on these, snap two is getting a little short and unsnapped is too big- so some of my leak issues may be fit and not absorbancy issues. We wouldn't even consider this one for overnight even with something added- the bamboozle with an extra hemp added just barely keeps it all in for 12 hours for us. Biggest perks of this diaper for me- love how they wash and dry super quick, trimmest fit of anything we have tried by far, and best aplix you can get (snaps are ok too but nothing special like their aplix).

I bought most of mine earlier this summer (not sure which came from where) from Diaper Junction, My Blossom Bottom, and Toasty Baby (our local CD store in Indy, but is online). I've got all I need for now, so I have stopped stalking them

Re: Couple of questions about the new Totsbot easy fit

We still have apix and snap in stock, FYI.

I can't say about their absorbency personally, we only have used the old style tots bots, but, everyone I have heard says they absorb a good amount...I really don't think I've heard of anyone who said they don't absorb well...

I think they are very absorbent, and they are very flexible so roomy to add more absorbency. It's easy to stuff an extra doubler into the pocket with the tongue.

How do they wash up? I don't want to fight to get diapers clean.

These ones were the least stinky of the stash when we were using RNG and everything else got nasty.

The minky in the new ones does not stain much with ebf. They stay soft. The inserts agitate out in the wash 99% of the time in my TL. they dry very quickly. The laundry tabs don't come off ever.

If they were not so expensive we would have lots more.
