Do BG OS really last until potty training?

My 5 month-old son has a few BG OS 1.0 and I have a few 2.0s on the way. When I double stuff for nighttime I have to adjust the rise to completely unsnapped. The rest of the time I have them on the middle setting. Here's the thing, he's only 5 months old. He's a little big for his age, but still. I'm concerned suddenly that these won't fit him all the way until potty training. Plus, I keep hearing about wiley toddlers pulling them off because of the velcro. It's time for me to size up from small dipes to mediums, but I was thinking of just going all BG so I won't have to size up to larges eventually. What do you all think? Go BG or go to medium FBs and HHs (which both fit great btw.)

Thanks!
Marie

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

My son is tall and bigger than alot of kids his age. I used them from about 4 months to about 14 months? that's a long time though. I only started on the medium setting. I'm sure they would have worked on the small when he was smaller. That being said, they are good, IMO, but I needed bigger diapers -the rise was fine but if he moved the right way, the applix came undone.

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

I love variety myself. So I'd say some of each! But for what it's worth, my 14mo old also used the larger rise early on. Still fitting great now though. He really packed on the weight for the first six months and since then he's really grown more length-wise than anything.

BG certainly don't fit all babies till potty training, but my four yr old is just outgrowing ours.

None of my babies/toddlers have taken diapers off except a few times while in the bed w/o pants. A onesie or bottoms for bedtime took care of that problem.

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

Ya know...I started with FBs. When I went from the smalls to the mediums, the leg change was so drastic on the dipe. The mediums were useless for us with a 1" gap at the leg.

I don't like BG's just due to the aplix issue...and that suedecloth (ick)!

I opted for ME AIO. They offer a great fit. You can lay in a liner with no probs.

And honestly, the ME dipes are the ONLY AIO dipe I've had that can take a beating and last YEARS and still not be leaky, have working snaps and elastic. The others...they would never last that long, and they don't.

Getting synthetics off the bum is also an issue with me. Did ya know that lots of fleeces are made from recycled plastic bottles? Who wants a plastic bottle/chemicals on your babes bum? Perhaps I'm just a bit too green...and growing more green.

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

I haven't tried BG..but I've had great results from Med FB's. I have a 9 month old 24 pounder and a 26 month old that 33 tall and 33 pounds. I'm pretty sure I won't need to up the size for either..the M will fit both my kids until potty trained. I've only tried the M though..I started CD when my youngest was 6 months..and althought the M fit wasn't as snug as I would have liked, I didn't have any leaks and it wasn't very long he was able to wear them just as snug as my 2 yr old daughter. My littlest one has chunky legs which probably helped. But I've had great luck with FB's (had to sell most of my HH's because of the velcro). FB's are my vote!

well the aplix on ours is becoming really horribly fuzzy, so I don't see how they will hold up until she's p'learned....but they do fit my four year old so who knows?

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

My stash is BG OS and MEOS with wool. I always make sure to keep a snap bottom shirt on with the BG OS so as not to tempt DS with the velcro. He already loves to play with the snaps while I am dressing him...

Re: Do BG OS really last until potty training?

My son is 18.5 months and I have both medium FB and BG OS. I love the FB more they leak less and he can't take them off. I have to have the BG all the way unsnapped and he takes them off if I don't put shorts on him.
