Re: What dipes does your DH prefer? If any ... LOL

My DH isn't too into CD'ing, which I can't figure out because I always told him to leave the poopy ones for me to clean out and always had a stack of pockets stuffed and ready to go! The best for him seem to be prestuffed pockets with aplix...he can never figure out proper snap placement, I have finally taken to marking DD2's XL FB's for night time with permanent marker on the snaps he needs to use as it gives him a guide and does wash off within a few washes.

BG newborns. I actually ordered a whole bunch more cause she fits in those the best anyways. For me its a toss up between those and my small smart fit prefolds. Our other diapers that get neglected until we have to use them are bitty bliss fitted (think thats the name) mutt fitted, grovia newborns, lil joeys and xsmall blueberrys.

All in ones or else fitteds with wool pants. He doesn't like to put on covers over the diapers (It seems to confuse him whether it is an AIO or a fitted and needs a cover so wool is easier).

His favorite diaper that he grabs for first is the Imagine AIO.
THIS!!

He wants it all the same- doesnt' care one bit what it is. lol. This is our second baby, first CD, so he sees all the benefits and is on board. Talks with the moms he works with I get the impression he's popular with these young ladies

He only does snappied prefolds. He's more adventurous now... he's ok with snapping WH (he has the GMD love, too) You should have seen the push back with the boingo (had never seen it)... I was in the shower... then for my night time change 30 min later, I realized I only gave him one (snappless sbish to prefold). LOL no wonder why he complained- he fastened it but I don't think I could have! (I won't even use the boingo). When he has an opinion, I listen! He has his fave covers out (which are mine, too). I bet he'd use a flat as a blanket, though. But he was diapered in flats as a baby. DH and MIL (she gets snap WH only) always grab wool longies--

I only leave out pf and WH... I slipped in sbish with no complaints... but works for me because I like all one thing. We agree no aio-- to hard for us to wash.


for your dh, I like the idea of aios themed with things he likes... whatever that is.

Sized fitteds. Any brand doesn't matter which. Now that our youngest needs large the diapers can have rise snaps as he just ignores them. When our son was smaller he would use prefolds rather than try to figure out rise snaps.

Neither he nor I like PUL. They make us think sweaty and clammy.

This EXACTLY! DH preferred aplix early on but now uses the basix or FreeTimes almost exclusively!

DH hates pockets because of unstuffing wet inserts.

We use aios or trifolded prefolds in covers. He'll use either but I think we both prefer the aios, they're just too expensive to have a whole stash of them.

anything he can put on as one piece. I'm keeping a dozen pockets to sastify this the rest will be cover and insert which he can also do but he'll do the pockets or AIOs first.
Overall though as long as he doesn't have to snappi or pin he is good.

DH HATED the free times he could never figure out how to lay the soaker part.
