Thirsties vs Bummis Super Brite vs ABC wrap

Which one is better in your opinion? I need another cover for night time (we use wool during the day and for naps).

Re: Thirsties vs Bummis Super Brite vs ABC wrap

I don;t have any of the ABC wrap but we do have both Thirsties and BSB wraps in medium. I will say that I reach for the Thirsties way more - I like the fit on my son better. (My son is about 19 lbs or so). I think they'll fit forever though - the tabs are touching when it is fastened on so he has lots of grow room. I wish the rise were a bit higher (the rise on the BSB is slightly higher than the Thirsties IMHO).

The BSB works well too - I just don;t like the fit quite as much as the Thirsties.

I'm partial to all things Thirsties myself as that's what we use, and thus, that's what I sell.

I hated Bummis as they leak but I haven't tried Thirsties. I can say Bummis is not so good for overnight though so try the other.

I have tried each of them and I must say, I LOVE the ABC wrap the best. I sold all others (except one super brite pink) to buy more abc wraps. I have five in my stash and LOVE them! THe fit is awesome and the sandwich PUL, IMO, holds up better against leaks than just the regular PUL in the thirsties and super brite. I find that the binding on teh abcs isn't wet like the other two even when the diaper inside is soaking.

HTH!

Thanks ladies.

I just ordered an ABC wrap and a Thirsties so hopefully one of them will work. I'll just keep the other for day-time back-up if it doesn't work for night time.
