  • Never heard of them. I like Huggies and Luvs and not all diapers are the same...some give horrible diaper rash and some are very leaky.

  • I use the FLIP diapers by Bum Genius. There are loads of demonstrations of different diaper brands on You Tube, also, join a cloth diapering group on this site- you will get a lot of helpful input there.

    I believe diaperpin.com has diaper reviews. Do know that with cloth you need to use a different type of diaper rash cream- traditional creams (desitin, etc.) are "barrier creams" They will build up on your diaper and eventually effect the absorbency. I love California Baby booty cream and LuSa organics booty balm. Hope this helps:)

  • I use the ones with the color changing line in the front to back. The line goes from yellow (dry diaper) to blue (not dry diaper). As my son got older I got ones with a lot of elasticity. They tend to keep everything in the diaper. That stuff was more important to me bc I change diapers constantly so my kids don't get a rash. And we had an episode in Walmart. Lets just say thats when I made the decision to get diapers that hold everything in.

  • are those a cloth diaper brand? I've never used cloth so I don't know if they are good or not. I use Comforts from Kroger. They're just like Huggies only cheaper.

  • From what I can tell so far is they are flushable diapers. they have re-useable covers and then the liners are replaceable. what I have read is you can choose either an insert that you flush when dirty or cloth inserts. I was just hear someone who has had experience with them or if there was another brand that could be recommended

  • I have heard that the flushable liners clog some toilets. I recommend FLIP cloth dispers. Target brand disposables are my fab disposables (size 1 and up). I always used pampers swaddlers on new born babies.
