Re: Am I the only one who des not love

They aren't my favorites, but I really like that they are one size. I keep them around because I know they will fit him until he PLs. What I dislike the most is that the BG suedecloth gets and holds more stains than any other inner I have ever seen.

Re: Am I the only one who des not love

I actually really don't care much for pockets in general. We've kept a few around thinking that people love them so much, we might one day understand the pocket love. I doubt it will ever happen though. Lately I have a hard time putting a BSWW on my dd for car trips b/c it's plastic... we're normally either 1) coverless, 2) wool cover or 3) fleece cover, so it's a shock to feel her hot tush after taking off anything that's plastic, pocket OR cover!

Not a pocket gal, either. They have their place (going out and don't feel like using wool) but we use fitteds probably 90% of the time. The bG! I tried was okay, but since I'm used to GADs, I just couldn't get into the look, feel or size.

Yep, don't really love mine either...it's okay and does the job...

BUT like everyone else has said it's kinda ugly, doesn't seem like it's going to hold up in the long run, and it seems to stain really easily for some reason at the leg casings, turns yellow

Re: Am I the only one who des not love

I have a couple to try out once the baby arrives, and if I don't like them, I figure I can still use them as covers, kwim? They have a great resale value too, and if I do end up liking them, I will kool-aid dye them.

Re: Am I the only one who des not love

i never intended to make a big deal out of my frustration with the BG's

main problem with the BGs is that I always have a hard time trying to stuff the insert inside the darn dipe. I have about 6 wonderoos and I like them fine, have been using them for almost a year. I have 2 in dipers right now and I am thinking of economical ways to cd them . First dipe I ever bought was a FB and I LOVED it but can not afford to buy them .I guess I compare every pocket dipe with them.....silly me I know.

Re: Am I the only one who des not love

Don't feel bad, Sara, I don't think this turned into a big thing. I think it's a long thread because so many people have tried them, so lots of people have an opinion.

I think the WAHM diapers vs mass produced is so true! I don't like Wonderoos, either. In fact, my 'Roos have been lightly used for just a few months, and the elastic is shot on 2 of them! Luckily they are a cheaper diaper, and I can fix the elastic, but I have some Little Rain Dancers that have been used everyday for more than 6 months (because I reach for them first ) and they are still perfect.

Take this with a grain of salt, though. I'm just not a pocket fan. I think I am going to unload all of my pockets. I haven't even used one in almost a month, they just sit there. I don't mind stuffing them, but I hate unstuffing them. Yuck!
