Re: Talk to me about sunbabies.

I love them for the fact they are really cute, I like the fleece inner, the way the pocket opening is, and they snap easily. However, they seem SO small. I got a few to try and my DD is tiny but I know she will probably outgrow them. I got a Kawaii and Alva to try and those are bigger.

Yeah, that's how ours was after we turned up the water heater. My whites were so white, lol! But now it is back down to 120, which is NOT steaming hot. So if yours is steamy it is probably more like 140 degrees, which yeah...killed my sunbabies. (at least, I assume that is what did it, maybe because it is TPU instead of PUL?)

IMO they are much more absorbent too!! When I doubled a bamboo insert they bunched and I had leaks. I had stink with microfiber. I liked tri-folded prefolds but they tend to get bulky. The receiving blankets are my favorite!!!

If you're handy with a sewing machine/serger you could buy some flannel and sew your own too!!

So glad to see this thread I am thinking of ordering for lo due in may but wasn't sure about which inserts to get. So micro fleece is better then the bamboo?

I looked at the sub baby website and the paisley prints are super cute but I don't understand about size one and size two. I thought they were OS pockets?

Re: Talk to me about sunbabies.

I wash on hot, (its probably not that hot) and the waterproofing is just fine on my sunbabies.

I love ours and stuff with prefolds. I've had them for 6 months now and they are holding up good so far. Still very soft and good elastic.

I have both sizes and there really is not that much difference. I actually prefer sz 2 though because after my son was 6 weeks old, they both fit him fine.

So which one is bigger. My LO is short with a fat tummy. I don't want her to grow out of them too quickly. Thank you.

Size 2 is bigger.. and will last just that much longer because of the small difference in there cut. I looked in Google and found this comparison picture:

Hope that helps! (:
