Diaper question...

What kind of style are Fuzzibunz? The ones where you slip the inserts into the hole/pocket. I want to make sure when I'm looking up new dipes I know what kind I'm wanting.

Also, who uses Flips? I'm not sure my feeling on them so far. I don't like the fact that they don't feel as "in place" as the FB's, but I do like that it's just the liner that goes into the pail and I can use the same cover (given nothing is on it). That cuts down on laundry a bit. Still, I think so far FB's are my choice. I haven't tried the Thirsties yet cause I'm positive she'd just unvelco them :(

I LOVE Flips:) I think they are my faves so far. But I have big inserts and they fill the diaper, when I use a smaller insert it seems like they won't catch everything, but they always do:) I've never used FB's or Thirsties. I just got some Happy Flutes (Love them) and some ALVAS (Havent tried them yet) So excited to though! LOL Can't believe I'm so excited about diapers!

 I have large trifolds I'm using in the Flips. Maybe I'm being vain about it. I don't like how it makes her butt look big (lol...didn't know how else to say it). Plus, she lays right down for a FuzziBunz but the Flips she throws a fit :/ She can't talk well yet so I don't know if they are causing her discomfort or what.

Fuzzibunz are pocket style diapers. I've never used flips but if it isn't secured with a Snappi it makes me nervous. Thirsties has covers that have snap closures. I love Thirsties covers and AI2s.

You can use a Thirsties cover over prefolds and secure the prefold with a Snappi. We love Thirsties

The Flip insert is probably too big if its making her butt look big. Gracie wears bigger size prefolds, she's 5 months & 16 lbs, under a Thirsties cover and it doesn't look big.

And a trick for toddlers who like taking their diapers off.... Always keep a onesie or pants on them while they're wearing a Velcro closure diaper. They can't get into it

 Thanks for the tip. I'm making a mental note to use the Thirsties with onesies :)
