Did anyone NOT like NB swaddlebees simplex?

i'm just curious. i always hear raves about them, and although i really don't NEED any more NB diapers, i feel like i should have a small stash of simplex because people seem to love them so much? thoughts?

They are my favorite NB diaper and the only ones we use on dd now. However there were a few things I was disappointed in...

1. Dd was 8 lbs 9 oz at birth and these didn't fit well in the legs until 4 weeks or so. She does have tiny legs, but I'd think they'd still be a lot bigger than a 6 lber (or whatever the beginning weight range is). She's 7 weeks now and I still have her on the tightest thigh setting.

2. The inserts don't agitate out for me. They do with the OS, but I have to pull all the NB ones out before they go in the drier.

Other than that, I love them.

I think they're...meh. Not awful but not a good fit for us. I find them bulky and I don't like the thickness I guess of the PUL. It feels plasticky or something. IDK I can get a trimmer fit and equal absorbency with a small flat and Nikky cover. I don't really care about cute so that's not enough to sell me on them. DS2 was able to wear them from birth at 7lbs 2 oz, but they were so bulky his little legs stuck out. Better fit now at 4 weeks but still not my favorite.

You guys that don't like them are insane- they were my favorite newborn diaper and if we are blessed with a #3, my entire stash will be these! (sorry I'm no help, I'm an enabler)

Re: Did anyone NOT like NB swaddlebees simplex?

okay, any other thoughts? The only think that's keeping me from buying them at this point is i really want at least one of the cow print and that is out of stock!
