Re: SBish: HLC or OBF for nights

How do I know if they are the old style or new style?

Obf run very small in my experiance but do hold more. I prefer the hlc because of the stretchy squooshyness

What does T&T mean? And while I'm at it, what does HLC mean?

I have some OBF BBHs and they get stiff even when I dry them in the dryer on medium (they're still damp and need to sit out on the drying rack until they are completely dry). I have been drying them on the "light dry" setting, letting them dry all day on the drying rack (by the time the diapers are ready to go into the dryer, it's morning), then I collect them all up in the evening and throw them back into the dryer for a 10 min timed dry. Then I lay them back out again and let them finish drying overnight and they end up nice a floppy and soft when they're completely dry. So idk why, but it helps to give them a short spin in the dryer before they're completely dry. (And, yeah, it's a pain, but the things we do for our babies Besides, it only takes 5 minutes to lay them back out again).

I think it was the Fall of 2011 when they switched. If its from sloomb it will be the new fuller cut, but if it's off FSOT ask when they got it. I only say this because I got an old one Mocha from a retailer not too long ago. I got it out of the dryer and it was about 1/2 the size of my other ones.

T&T mean turned and topstitched. Like the snapless or HLC (happy little clouds) which are a snapped version of the snapless with a different soaker. No ruffles around the legs.

My guess would be the nature of the OBF makes it difficult and expensive to do. It probably would take forever to dry too. On ODC's website she explains why her loops aren't T&T, so I just assume it is probably very similar reasoning.

We are able to use both overnight; I think the OBF is slightly more absorbent though.
