Which AIO should I add to my stash?

I am planning to add a few more diapers to our stash and have had experience with all of those listed below, but just cannot decide which one to get (so indecisive):

- Bottombumpers (sized or OS)
- Swaddlebees Simplex 2.0 (sized)
- bumGenius Elementals

Or, should I add a mix of a few of them?

FYI: Currently, I have 18 bG4 Pockets (going to sell 6-9 of them though), 9 Rainshine Designs AIO's/AI2's and just 3 BottomBumper AIOs.

Thanks for your help

Re: Which AIO should I add to my stash?

Have you thought about Simplex one-size? I love those!

Out of the ones you mentioned I like Simplex 2.0 the best. I liked BGE's until I got annoyed with spraying poop out of the layers (eww!). I'm not a fan of the floppy, snake-like soaker that Bottombumpers have.. I like the flat surface of a Simplex the best.

I'd go with Simplex!

I have the OS Simplex and LOVED them but ideally, I like a diaper that does not have snaps on the rise (at some point they always end up rubbing on LO's thighs). Guess the BGE would end up doing that too . . .

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts Mama

Definitely the simplex... I prefer the OS over the sized, though

No, the sewn in MF scares me a bit. Do you like them?

You want a sized AIO? How about a Bum-ware?

I am very intrigued by these but the sewn-in MF scares me a bit. Do you have them? Like them? Any stink issues?

I love them. I have never had MF issues though. Plus when my toddler poops in them, I literally let one flap fall in the toilet and the poop comes right off, where as my pockets I have get more manual with it. I should probably buy a diaper sprayer but I found I don't NEED it haha. They also dry just as fast as the MF inserts and prefolds when on my drying rack.
