They advertise that they use PUL and I can see that the fabric has PUL characteristics, but they are SUPER leaky, and a terrible fit. We went to baby kangas and have never looked back.
I have also heard that about funky diapers. I had a mama bring hers to me and I added a snap to each wing. This really helped the wing droop and now she is happy with them again. I wonder if the leaking is due to the poor fit? When I first started converting our stash of BGs, we had the same setup as funky diapers. After I added the exta snap the end result was way better. IMO, the one snap = crap rule is great for ANY diaper. It causes wing droop and leaking!

Re: Which diapers have you had worst experiences with?

I absolutely hated pocket diapers, but of the two I tried I liked fuzzi bunz the best. My BG 3.0 leaked all the time, I always had stink issues and my DD is sensitive to every detergent out there. I guess maybe the stink was my fault but my fuzzi bunz didn't seem to stink like the BG 3.0 inserts. I didn't like the fit of the BG 3.0 and long before my DD was 2 years old (less than 25 lbs and very thin, wearing 18 month size clothes) she had outgrown the rise in the BG. I switched to prefolds because I learned more about synthetics and decided I only wanted natural fibers against my babies. So I bought cotton babies prefolds. The premium size was ok but again before age two my DD outgrew those (too long and not wide enough) so I switched to GMD prefolds and I am in love. I had no idea you could love diapering but I do, paired with thirsties covers and Disana wool at night, we have found the perfect diapering system. Oh and sposoeasy wing droop is easily solved, just tuck the wings into the laundry tab opening.

I had constant wicking with Happy Heiny's and leaking from the tabs on BG 2.0's. I used Fuzzibunz and GAD's on DS1. Now, for DS2, I did prefolds and Thirsties covers (which I love) till 6mos. Now I'm loving the Flip.

I HATED my happy Heiny's! They leaked ALL the time! I switched to prefolds with wonder wraps covers , and then added some bella bottom bamboo fitteds to the mix as well and I LOVE my dipes! They NEVER ever leak, and no stink issues

Re: Which diapers have you had worst experiences with?

I have to say that I bought about 100 cloth diapers! I got a bunch of different brands. I am hooked on Bum Genius!

Re: Which diapers have you had worst experiences with?

I've had no luck with pocket diapers of any kind. Now the only way I use them is as a cover over a prefold.

The absolute worst I've used are Thirsties AIO's. They leaked from the first time I used them, and the pocket is too small to stuff anything into.

I really want to love the AMP fitteds, but I have to cross over the tabs and the rise is just barely hgh enough. Hopefully they will fit for a bit longer since I got them just over a month ago.

Side snaps never really worked for us either, because Alice is a side-sleeper and they tend to leak out the snaps if she wears them at nap time.

Re: Which diapers have you had worst experiences with?

I've had quite a few...
I have a love hate relationship with BG OS. We starting cd-ing when ds was 18mo- a small boy and they fit great and rarely leaked. Then 1.5 years later, the elastic shot, the velcro is curled and the laundry tabs don't stick. I think that's crap craftsmaship. I am in the process of converting to snaps but mad and won't likely buy BG anything again- certainly nothing with applix.
Microfibre sucks constant stink issues.
I alos had some Whammies OS (hooks) and didn't love the hooks. They were softer than BG but were prone to leaks.
Son number two arrived in Oct and in general, I'm disappointed with OS for infants- I won't ever waste the money on OS- but use fitteds or sized pockets/aio.

I like haute pockets.
Kawaii baby OS are huge - minky are fine but the PUL OS and their OS covers I am not happy with.
I found a ME sandy's bamboo in a stash of hand-me-downs... I LOVE the way it fits, love the fabric and absorbancy. It's trim and fits my chunker well.

I am not a fan of Kushies- bulky, leaky.

I never really liked BG or BK. I tried a bunch of stuff then started my own. Every kid is a bit different. I always tell mamas to try 1 or 2, if it works get more.

I'd have to say my HH OS. I'm sure they'd be great for some, but my little guy is long and lean so his legs are too skinny. I'd be interested in trying the new mini though
