bum Genius questions

I am seriously considering selling off all my stash and buying bum Genius solely for my 4 mth old 2 year old. I have a few questions, though.

-I like the fleece insides of my fbs. I know that bgs can come in fleece. Is it a lot bulkier than suedecloth? I love how trim the bgs are and I hate to ruin that.

-Where's the best place to get good deals on them? I like the colors.

-Is there another one sized diaper I should look at before taking the plunge? I do like snaps over applix, but I don't mind the ones on the bg.

-Is the outer layer pretty sturdy? I unsnapped it and it seemed like it might break if yanked. Any problems with that?

Thanks for your help.

I doubt the fleece BG! is any bulkier than the SC.

I like Superstars (Wonderoos) and they have snaps. They are also coming out with applix ones in a few months. I like the fit a little better of the BG! but I like that the SS can be washed in hot and they still look brand new.

The fleece-lined BGs *may* be a shade bulkier, but it is really hard to tell. I still think they fit pretty trim. I think you can only get the fleece-lined ones at cottonbabies.com and only until they sell out - it's a limited time offering.

GL deciding!

Re: bum Genius questions

I have both wonderoos one size (from right before they changed to superStars) and bg's. I love Bg's for daytime on my toddler, all her clothes fit over them nicely. I use wonderoos at night with both pieces of the Wonder-fulls insert and a doubler. They hold up great, no leaks so far. My bg's can't go all night even with a doubler, I probably should try with two inserts and a doubler!
BG's have limited colors unless you want to get white and dye them yourself. SS come in a large array of beautiful colors and the colors I've had don't fade in hot wash.
Both cotton babies and wonderworks have excellent customer service. So I was probably of no help was I
I'm waiting to try a ss with aplix I think I'll get a better fir on Jen

Re: bum Genius questions

The sizing is so great on both of them that I'm worried that the snaps will ruin that. Although I do like that the superstars are made with pul. That's a major bonus. I guess I'll have to get both and decide from there.
