Re: BGE or BG 4.0? Am I crazy?

Soooooo... We are in the process of switching to natural fibers because of stink issues. Most of my stash consists of prefolds and covers, and I'm really happy with them. But I am wanting to get some AIOs for my refuse-to-use-prefolds DH and MIL, and for on the go. I am aware that 4.0 is not an AIO and the inner lining is poly not cotton. I was thinking I could stuff them with my prefolds that are too small for pinning. Also the I have used BG pockets before and felt like the stink issues are more prevalent with the inserts, not the covers.

I like that BGE are all cotton and all one piece, but they are pretty pricy and I have heard they are hard to spray poop off of. I plan to use these for my 13 month old now, and hopefully for another chunky little newborn someday, so the OS is important to me.

Thoughts?

Re: BGE or BG 4.0? Am I crazy?

I have never used a BGE so i can't speak to that. I do however have 3 4.0s and like them. We have pretty hard water and I have had problems keeping microfiber stink free. Never a problem with our 4.0s though. We stuff with Flip organic night inserts.

LOVE our BGE. Have been our favorite diaper for years. Haven't tried the new style though.

Even with the extra flap? DD poops in LARGE QUANTITIES and I have to completely submerse my PFs to rinse them. Sorry for the gross images going through your head right now...

BGE would probably work well for you.

Maybe, I don't know the difference btw free time and elementals except that the inner fabrics are different. Do elementals have the extra soaker?
