Have you tried the organic Simplex? I would say the exact opposite. Less staining, quilted up super nice and was really soft. That may be because the regular are birdseye and thatís the difference, but I liked my organic NB and organic one size better.

I personally am a fan of the growing practice and I like the idea of less potential pesticides against babyís skin. I read about them before I got them and people swear they are slightly more absorbent, but I canít say I really noticed a difference. They are way softer than the Birdseye.

Yeah, I figured that people like the growing practice; I just didn't know if there was also something directly related to diapers that made "organic" a better option. I noticed that simplex went all organic now and I didn't know if that made their diapers better or just different.

You know.... I have recently gotten a big lot of Simplex of both kinds and haven't paid attention but I will start keeping tabs and update.
