UPDATE: just wanted to update. My thirsties aios came and so far I am really happy with them. They come off easy and I can put them back on with DD standing (a real benefit for potty training). I did order some thirsties duo diaper pockets as well bc I found them on sale but they arent here yet. I will probably try to review when theyre here. I did not get a freetime yet....and may not. The more I thoguht about the suedecloth and the crotch width of bg in general, the less excited I became but it seems like the reviews on them are great. If I get anything else it may be nanas bottoms so info/pics on those would be much appreciated!

Thanks for all the help and votes!

If you had to pick one strictly for daddy/grandparent/daycare, which would you pick?
Freetimes or Thirsties duo aio? For a one yr old and up?

Out of just these two? Freetime

But if I could pic another it would probably be bge or grovia aio bc I am paranoid that someone would put the mf the wrong way. I tend to over think these things though

I'd want freetimes. BUT, for completely foolproofness, thirsties definitely wins. The flaps in the freetime need to be situated before putting on so that when you pull the front up its not stuck under the butt leaving gaps at the belly.

Of these two, Freetimes. Assuming they fit.

Freetimes are a terrible fit on my skinny dd, and I tried both snaps and aplix, so I'd go with the Thirsties.
I would buy Thirsties from a retailer and save the receipt; if anything goes wrong (i.e. their velcro blows, which is really a shame, I love their products otherwise) you could make a warranty claim.

Wellllll truth be told I already ordered some thirsties...but then I started reading freetime reviews and was thinking I messed up. The freetimes look really wide thru the crotch..but I hear absorbency is iffy with the thirsties aios. We have lots of small doublers so hopefully theyll help. I did buy them from a retailer I trust.

Eta my dd is pretty long and skinny, no butt or legs

Re: Vote! Thirsties duo aio or bg Freetime

I am not a fan of the Freetime, it is wide and the flaps are hard to get situated on my dd. I have not tried a Thirsties aio so I can't say for sure but dd is not a heavy wetter and I know I don't like the Freetime so my vote would be for the Duo.

Re: Vote! Thirsties duo aio or bg Freetime

I would have to go with the Freetimes - and this is from a hard core Thirsties fan. The Thirsties AIO's didn't work at all with my girl, every single time I got a leaks (both snap and velcro). I wanted to love them, I really did, but nope. The freetimes are bullet proof for us, car trips, over nights, heck - even GRANDPA changing them!

Yeah, this baby went from total roly poly bottom to it being like trying to put a diaper on a pencil.
What about pockets? Those can be pretty foolproof...bgos fit my dd1 (who was also super skinny) around 1 year.
