Also the rise on the prints is shorter than the OBV's. For me it didnt justify the cost.
wow, it's nice to know I am not the only one bothered by the snap marks. Why do they do that?

I thought the snaps were covered by the soaker?

And yeah. I might want to buy more! I do have my limits though. While some mama was totally blessed at getting a box of 6 of those new prints, there was no WAY that I would consider spending the $725 that she did!!!
what was 725?????

Re: Why Do We Need a GM

I had 2 at one point and they didn't work well for us, so we passed them along. But they do work for a lot of people. So you never know. Maybe try one that is similar but costs less to see if you like that "style" of fitted before you try a GM?

Nope. Not the hip snaps.

Re: Why Do We Need a GM

if you dont want to get addicted to expensive diapers (I've been there, done the whole $1500 shopping spree) then I would say try some cheaper alternatives first, and fall in love with those! (fattycakes I LOVE, loveybums are nice -- but not so stretchy, nanipoos are cheap and get the job done great IMO!).I had a stash of all sweetiebums and gm's and changed it all and I'm much happier now.

No, I always see snap marks there. Then again tho, it's not like dd is uncomfy regarding that issue.

IME the snaps always got him on the hips really bad and across the tummy also (but not very deeply -- it was the hips that I couldnt take anymore, it was rubbing him raw!)

Well I changed the whole stash to all Fattycakes from Butterfly Baby w/internal soakers, My Precious Baby By April SS fitteds and Nanipoos. I still have a few sweetiebums that I'm going to put up here soon. Fattycakes just fit the bill perfectly for us and at $18 a fitted and free shipping over $100 I couldnt beat the price
