Re: If I had known...
I don't consider my 3 week old to be a heavy wetter, but he pees through the Simplex pretty quick. And then with the legs gaps (I think I have a pic somewhere) it leaks poo, too. Not every diaper is for everyone, and I really disliked the Simplex on my newborn. I just wanted to put up a different experience. I preferred Little Joey and Rainshine Design AIO's, but they still didn't fit nearly as well as his Goodmama fitteds and Graham Bear Wear.
I think stay dry is more comfortable for the baby, so I prefer it. I know ds gets fussy when he feels his diapers are wet.
