Tell me why! What are the pros & cons. Apparently my washer is putting holes in my BGEs (that are 6 weeks old and not very used).

I bought 7 new. And my son spent 2 weeks on antibiotics (I don't use cloth then) It is crazy! I'm so so sad. My stash is small but I give in to sposies often too. He is in one now but we have a tummy bug here & he grodied up a Thirsties insert & Grovia shell a bit ago.

WAY tighter than their shells. I still use them but they are not my fav. I still like the BGEs the best. I really want to try that wahm dipes. I've heard really great things.

Oh crud. Those won't work then. The baby has sensitive skin.

Re: Other AIOs that are equal to BGE

Wow, holes already?? The BGE's are my favorite but I only have 6. I've had one for about a year now and the other 5 I've only had for 4 months but no holes and they are used every day. I only have 15 diapers and the BGE's are the first I grab. I always leave one for night time tho. I wash them every day. Too bad they don't make them anymore so you could get them replaced

Re: Other AIOs that are equal to BGE

I've started doing prefolds in my grovia shells and am loving it. I know its not a replacement for the BGEs but it might be a cheaper alternative than buying a bunch of new aios.

I tried the Grovia AIO one time and did not like the fit at all. The elastic was funky.

You are probably right. I use Thirsties hemp inserts in my Grovia shells. I just hate the bunching then the poop gets in the mesh... I only have 3 shells. I had 6 but sold some.

I would absolutely LOVE the simplex if they made them the old way without the stretch tabs!! So maybe if you could find some of those used.
