I just don't get it!
I had a stash of half FBs with Isis and I hated them, they were so leaky, and forget about using hem overnight, regardless of how much I stuffed them!

They've changed since then, and come in OS and I hear people rave about them, especially for nbs since the crotch isn't overly wide. I have one what is labeled "one size" fb and put it on my 8 pounder last night. How is this one size? There's no rise adjustment!! She looked like she belonged on a golf course in FL sporting the latest hearing aid, and there were still gaping holes around her legs!

I just don't understand how a diaper w/o a rise adjustment can be consider one size. And I still don't understand why there's so much love for FBs. But that's just me. To each their own. :)

Same here.. :o) 

Quoting JoyfulJ: It is different for everyone, but I have about 5 of them and I do use them a lot. I don't hate them but they aren't my favorite.

We just trifold the prefold so no snappis necessary-I can totally see my DH being overwhelmed by them :)

Quoting FrumpyMama:

  Ditto. I have a bunch of BG's and Kawaii overnights.  I just didn't love them as much as wool and prefolds. They never leak and are so easy to wash. Not as dh friendly but he does try with the snappis and he loves the wool longies.

Quoting TrentsMom84:

Mine leaked every time I out them on my son.  They never held in a pee.  I bought them brand new and prepped them and they sucked every time I tried to use them.  The longer I cloth diaper the more I just like prefolds and covers.

Quoting jconney80:

Yeah Bumgenius rock! I just wish their Velcro lasted longer. I love Thirsties covers too.

It is pretty easy to convert them over to snap closure diapers when the velcro dies.  :-)

 Those sizes don't make any sense.

A lot of it is personal preference and your baby's body shape.

We use flip diapers and I really like them. They fit approximately 12-35 pounds and they just came out with a larger size too for potty training.

Quoting nkkk07:

Hmmm.. I'm planning to cd this baby and was considering FB because of the one size deal... But clearly I need to research some more. Thank you!!

I have some xsmall fuzzibunz for my newborn and I like them because they are so trim. I do not use them at night though because they do leak. What kind do you use?

 I've never heard of them.
