Goodmamas hype. Explain!

Ok, I risk being mocked for my dumbness here, but it won't be a new experience.

Can someone explain to me what the current hype over Goodmamas is? What's so special about them?? Understand I don't mean this in a negative way, they sure look beautiful, but I don't understand the crazy.

They're a BTP, right? I've never had a BTP that I've got a good fit with, DD is super skinny and quite long in the butt, she outgrew SOS on the rise before she was off the tightest waist snaps.... I'm just wondering if it's worth me stressing over getting one to try if they're unlikely to work.

Share your love of Goodmamas and enlighten me!

They fit my 19 lb 14 month old and my 40 lb 3 year old perfectly. No red marks on either of them. They are super soft and I love that they are organic bamboo. Not to mention they are supercute!

I had to try them to really understand, but I am hopelessly in love.

Re: Goodmamas hype. Explain!

If you do a search for Goodmamas you'll get a bunch of threads just like this one But here's my reasons...

They're cute, they're one size, they're organic, they're very absorbent, they fit my son perfectly, and they're super soft and stretchy. I'm probably forgetting a few others, but I think that's enough.

Also, I don't know what BTP means

I'm assuming BTP means birth to potty. I have tiny babies, so they wouldn't have fit at birth, but they'll def. last till PL'ing. They fit great, are soft, absorbant, cute. I didn't want to love them, but I do.

I didn't understand until I tried one. My first 2 came a couple of days ago and I am in love.

Too true!

-Best execution of the OS idea I have seen. That is to say, the snaps are easy to figure out, and you can pull one out of the pile and put it on a toddler or a newborn without having to adjust rise snaps first.
-Not too bulky on a small baby
-They are THE softest and squishiest diapers I have ever encountered!
-Ridiculously absorbent but the double-layer snap-in soaker dries fairly quickly
-100% guaranteed...if the elastic goes out or a snap comes off, Suzanne will fix it for you no matter what (if you're the original purchaser)
-Suzanne is a fantastic mama who pays her workers fair wages
-Diapers are made in the US from organic fabrics

And oh so many other reasons...but those are my biggies

-Sara

Re: Goodmamas hype. Explain!

The fit is WAY better than an SOS on a toddler. My skinny long 19 month old is on an outer snap on an SOS (sold it immediately -- ugh), but I can still fold down the rise AND cross the snaps on a goodmama.

They're the only OS dipe we really get a perfect fit with.
