Swaddlebees fitted, which is best?

I am going to get some Swaddlebees fitteds in size small to use on my new baby once they fit. Which kind absorbs the most? There are too many choices! I know people like the OV, but is it just softer, or more absorbant than the cotton terry?

They are more $$ than Size one Mutts, which do you like better if you have used both?

Re: Swaddlebees fitted, which is best?

I havent used the NB size myself. But my customers have ordered both and the feedback I have gotten is equal for both being excellent and high quality. I think the biggest thing they commented on was how soft the OV was, but no one has said either was more absorbant. I use the SB OV Onesize. It is very absorbant and so soft. I also have used the pocket fitteds and love them.

My favorite is the OV pocket fitteds...but I also like just the OV fitteds. The terry are nice too just not as soft. I havent noticed one being more asorbant than the other. The terry are definetly lighter feeling though.

HTH,
Karen

The OV are definitely more absorbent than the regular cotton terry, I couldn't say about the organic cottot terry though. The regular terry ones don't hold much.

Re: Swaddlebees fitted, which is best?

I have both the OV and organic terry fitteds. DD started wearing them at about a week old. Both are absorbant -- I haven't noticed a difference between them. I believe Swaddleebees still has some small organic terry fitteds left in their outlet store.

^^ Yeah, that^^ I have both, and both the OCT and the OV work great. It's not like the OCT is a roof shingle or anything, but the OV just stays so velvety soft.

ETA if they have anything in the outlet store go for those! Usually it's just a minor serging flaw and it doesn't effect preformance or wear at all- so you get a great diaper for nearly 1/2 the price!

Thanks for the replies, I think I will try a few OV. Any one else have a thought about them?

Since they are so trim, do they hold newborn Bf poo very well?

DD hasn't had any blowouts in the OVs. They've been very good at containing her poo.

Yeah, we love the OV ones for daytime in daycare. I use premium PFs and find them as absorbent for my baby.
