bumGenius Freetimes vs. Blueberry Basix . . .

For those of you who have used both, which do you like better, bumGenius Freetimes or Blueberry Basix? I am not usually someone who likes a sewn-in MF soaker but I am intrigued by these both as I like the stay-dry feature and ease of an AIO.

Thanks for sharing!

Freetimes are more absorbent while Basix are easier to spray. Plus one is sized and the other isn't.

Good point - forgot about the OS vs Sized. Are the Freetimes a lot more absorbent?

I don't like the freetimes at all! I would totally recommend the bluberry. BG pockets are a whole different story. But if you're considering Freetimes or blueberry, I would say blueberry. I don't think Freetimes are all that absorbent, hard to spray, and i really didn't like the fit on my son.

I find the Freetimes to be more absorbant but the Basix are trimmer. DD is still EBF so I have no experience with spraying poop yet.

Re: bumGenius Freetimes vs. Blueberry Basix . . .

I don't have freetimes, because I can't do suedecloth but I love my basix, I do add a hemp booster for naps, nights, and long times out, but I don't hesitate to boost any diapers in those times. What I love about the basix is how easy it is to clean up and that when I do add a booster it is a tunnel opening, soooo much easier than stuffing a pocket! DS is 25 pounds in fits in M and L, but I moved him up to L and expect he will PT out of them.

Freetimes aren't that absorbent, I haven't had to spray one yet, but I assume it would be difficult. However for a 3 hour stretch during the day they are one of my favorite diapers. Never tried a blueberry basic AIO

I was thinking that they, along with my SS Simplex would be great for PL'rng!

Basix don't have stretchy sides like the Simplex so using them as trainers would be tougher. My toddler has never leaked out of a Freetime but has out of a Basix. Granted that was over a 3+ hour stint so she really should have been changed but Freetimes lasted that long with no leaks. However, the fit of the Basix is so trim and the prints are so cute!! Also my toddler has almost outgrown the Freetimes and has more room in the L Basix.

Ooh, good to know Mama, I just assumed it also had stretchy tabs. And great info on the absorbency and fit of the two - thanks Mama
