Sell me on simplex

Everyone seems to rave about swaddlebees simplex!

As you can tell, tots bots are not working. I want to give a simplex a try.

Should I get sized or OS?

I hesitate even trying these because they are for daddy & we both prefer aplix. Also I like the idea of a one size more because they can fit the next baby.

Is there something else that is rocking right now that is a natural fabric diaper, a pocket or AIO with aplix?

Depends on if you like/need stay dry and if you like side snapping diapers or not. Sized are side snapping with no stay dry and OS are front snapping with stay dry if you want it. I love both.
However daddy can have trouble with them. But with snaps at least you can tell daddy "he's on the second row of snaps" or something like that.

Re: Sell me on simplex

Iniatially I like the OS. I don't do side snapping diapers because I can't get them sized easily so I went with the OS. Both boys wound up out wetting them and I wound up stuffing and I found them difficult to stuff so, back to BG 4.0s we went. Our nanny also needs aplix so, that pretty much killed them simplex love for us. I did like the NB size though. I use the 4.0s for my almost three year old and fitteds for the one year old.

The OS are my favoriate diaper of all time. It's the diaper I reach for first. Fits my son like a glove. I know I can always rely on them for a long car ride or a nap. They are trim and great quality. Wash up well, don't take super long time to dry. Great quality, pricey but worth every penny.

I love my simplex! I have nb, sized, and OS! If you're looking for natural fibers with aplix though, check out nanas bottoms or bum-ware.

I love os Simplex!! Great fit and plenty absorbent! I'm a snap girl myself but if you prefer Aplix you might like Bottombumpers, Bamboo Baby, Nana's, or OsoCozy AIOs better.

I would go with OS because:
1. The stretchy tabs on the sized leaked for us (I have 2 boys) whereas the OS has PUL tabs.
2. If you're expecting another baby you can easily switch from one rise setting to another, which is very handy!!
3. overall it's cheaper to do OS than 3 different sizes.
