Re: Drybees?

I had one -I could stuff the crap out of it and it was definitely heavy-wetting nap worthy. It was just huge - tho if you use FB, prolly not that huge - and we can't do Aplix without having a nakey baby

Re: Drybees?


I'm totally watchin' this thread.

I found them at www.nickisdiapers.com the other day. I love our fb's, but I need a few "Grandma friendly" diapers. Whenever I leave her a fb, I come back and it's sagging off, because no matter how many times I show her, she can't figure out the snaps!

I ordered one to try, but I'm interested to see what others think. Plus, they have cute colors!! (I'm easy to please, apparently!)

Re: Drybees?

I absolutely LOOOOVVVVEEEEE them. One of my first diaper purchases, and I went back and bought a few more. I can stuff them with all sorts of things and get a great fit--- better than the FB or HH by a landslide. They've contained huge poops and overnight pees without a problem.

I've got a medium in navy blue I'm looking to sell (to buy a more girly color) if you're interested.

Just my two cents.

I probably need larges. Thanks though and thanks for the reply I think I need to try one at least.

Re: Drybees?

I have one I got used here. I haven't had it long but I do like it. It is big I got a lg and it is kind of big on my dd who usually wears large. You could stuff a lot into it and I haven't had any leaks. They aren't as trim of a fit or as fun as I prefer in a diaper. But I prefer it to fuzzi bunz and bum genius.

I like that it has a suede cloth inner and that the pocket is elastic the stuffing stays in better. IMO.

Have you looked at angeldrys? I have 4 pockets and 1 AIO. You can get suede or fleece lined and snaps or velcro closures and she has some fun prints. The pocket is in the front instead of the back and snaps shut, which is a really cool feature IMO. They are a little poofy in their fit like the drybees, but I have never had a leak in them even after more than normal wear. I don't use them at night though.

Re: Drybees?

The Drybees I bought was my fave of all the pockets I tried. They seemed to hold the best. Yes, a bit poofy - but they held wonderfully. I've given up on cloth so I'm selling mine beloved DB now.

Re: Drybees?

I have one I got used. . . IMO, it's quite stiff, and dd "crackles" when she wears it. Had some issues getting the stuffing right, but I'd say it works just fine. I'm not going to run out and buy more, but it gets used regularly . . .
