Re: Simplex vs. Basix

I have a few Basix and love them, I'm not sure if the elastic not being encased would bother me on a simplex... I have to add absorbency to the Basix but my son outwets nearly everything in an hour without a booster.

Yes, must be version 1. The V2 have stretchy tabs like swimsuit material.

Re: Simplex vs. Basix

version 2 simplex is cut more narrow, does have the stretchy tabs, and has no stay dry feature (when you pull the flap out on mine, there's no staydry side-- only birdseye cotton--- but maybe another person can tell you if there are 2 new versions). Not sure what it means about elastic not encased... I'd say in V2, it is (maybe another change)

just FYI

AND, I do think they run small (I have one up on fsot because it's waaay too small-- DS only wore it a couple times before he out wet it-- I like a dipe with a high rise for him... really wish I'd gotten it 5 lbs sooner for him! size up early IMHO.

OS Simplex have the stay dry option, sized do not.

I tried a med on my 28 lbs 3 year old to check fit for someone. It fit her with room to grow still. My YDD is 19lbs. (13 months) has been in the med for 7-9 months now and on the smallest setting again she did move up a setting but has slimmed in the waist.

I've actually thought about trying a large but I think they will be WAY to big on my YDD still. I'm pretty sure she will PT out of the med.

Re: Simplex vs. Basix

Awesome thread, OP!

Not sure if anyone has seen this, but here is a blog post about the differences between the OS Simplex, Simplex 2.0 and Basix.

we must be talking about different diapers. I thought this was about the sized simplex swaddlebees (2.0 vs 1.0) ... maybe people are only talking about the OS?? DS is 25 lbs and there is NO WAY he could ever wear what I have. I would have loved it right after newborn but didn't get it soon enough.

Just went to the website since now I'm curious and pulled the specs on the medium swaddlebees simplex 2.0 that I have.

Medium:
12-25 lbs (I say no way that high)
rise:16 in
waist: 11-20
thigh: 8-13


Sorry if I jumped in the wrong discussion!! Likely why a lot of it didn't make sense to me
