SBish HLC v. OBF - help!

I'm looking for a great night-time fitted for my heavy wetting twins ... I love the snapless fitteds by SBish for daytime use, and have heard good things about both the Happy Little Cloud and Organic Bamboo Fleece SBish fitteds - but I'm curious to hear some hands on experience between the two. Anyone?!

Thanks in advance

Re: SBish HLC v. OBF - help!

I have some hlc on the way! We used m obv before but they don't fit anymore. In my experiance they run extremely small (we only got to wear them for a month!) that being said my little lady does have some chunky thighs. The diaper lost it softness pretty quickly but wasn't too bad once I started using ecover with it. It was very absorbent! I never even had to use te doubler it came with! I have heard the hlc are made of the same material as the snap less and dont hold as much liquid as the obf but stay softer. I'll letcha know more details once mine get in

A quick update ... I did some research and some emailing, and found out that the Happy Little Clouds are basically the same as the snapless fitteds, but just sized, and with snaps.

But the OBF SBish are much denser, and apparently a really good one for night time use!

Re: SBish HLC v. OBF - help!

^^^ Agreed. We pretty much just do sbish. I have snapless and HLCs for daytime. I do find HLCs to hold a little more but its just because of their soaker style. I use them to go out a lot.
For nightime we use OBFs. They no longer run small and they are fairly true to size. You can keep then soft by air drying, ECover and not using super high heat. The OBF fabrics works best for nightime. My son fell asleep last night in a HLC and I couldn't bare to wake him so, I put a soaker over it. It lasted all night, but he was visibly annoyed in the morning with how wet he was (trying to get the diaper off). The terry gets really wet and looks uncomfortable.

It's always so good to get reviews from actual users! Thanks!!

I think I'll be splurging on some OBFs and Disana wool covers for night time use

Can't go wrong with that combo. Disanas are bulletproof after two lanos and a little felting int the wetzone (to speed this up, just gently rub the crotch area together between your hands when wet, otherwise just let it occur naturally).

I do use a fleece liner at night too. You will love it.

Where did you find Ecover softener? I've looked everywhere and no one in my area carriers it.
