Thirsties V2 Pocket or Kushies AIO? Need advise.

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

I'm looking at getting some all-in-one type diapers to use instead of disposables when I'm away from home. I want something simple that won't take too long in a store/restaurant bathroom to change. Currently, at home I use pre-folds or mother-ease diapers with a variety of covers. I've seen the Thirsties V2 Pocket diapers and Kushies All-In-One diapers at a local retailer. I registered for both on Amazon - so I may be getting some for Christmas, but if I don't I'd like some feedback from those of you who use them,,,



Thanks!

Any thoughts on HuggaBuns? A local retailer has a sale on the shells (so I could use my infant prefolds as inserts) for $5 each......

Quoting Ruth:

Thanks! Sounds like Fuzzi Bunz are great. My husband doesn't want to deal with cloth diapers while we are out, so the simpler the better. A friend said she felt like stuffing the pockets was an unnecessary step. I'm thinking of heading in that direction simply because they will dry faster. I have one small FB pocket that I bought at a consignment shop used and I love it. Unfortunately, my LO will grow out of it in no time because he's in that in between small and medium sizing. My hesitation with the snaps is that they aren't infinitely adjustable like the aplix are and with the aplix it's closest to the disposables that my husband is so fond of.

The big thing for me is that I don't have the facilities really to be sewing my own and I literally have next to no money to spend on them.

For larger babies has anyone had luck stuffing a pocket diaper with a cotton prefold?



Seeing that you bought at a consignment shop, I'll recommend diaperswappers.com - you can buy and trade on that site and I have had good luck purchasing basically brand new diapers that have been prewashed and used 1 time only to be put up for sale b/c the parent didn't like them for 1 reason or another.  I'm getting ready to sell my Thirsties v2 Pocket dipes on there, as my daughter wasn't in them for very long and should we be lucky enough to have a 2nd baby, I'll probably go out in search of small FBs.  Wish that I knew how to sew ...



We have used cotton prefolds in a pocket diaper ... in fact, my husband was the one that stuffed it in there b/c one of the FBs was without its insert.  It worked just fine and our LO is a heavy wetter and a big baby --- she is nearing 5 months and just weighed in at almost 17 lbs.! 



Good luck!

I used Thirsties v2 Pocket diapers when my daughter was 2-3 months old - I bought a few of them. Pros: Exactly like disposables, could supplement with an insert, fit well. Cons: Velcro/Aplix is a pain to rinse the poop out of and it irritated my daughter's skin, they take forever to dry and they came undone when my daughter started to roll around. I ended up going with sized FuzziBunz, which I like, as I really do prefer the snaps. While adding the insert into the pocket is an extra step, I just launder everything and put the insert into the pocket part as part of the "folding" step and then stack 'em up and put them away on the changing table. My humble $0.02.

Well, i used to use thirsties and prefolds..then I tried happy heinys one size and now i have 15 of them. I think those ones are great. I also use one size fuzzi bunz and those i think are even better...more able to custom fit them. I have two bumgenius and I was not as impressed with those. I thought those were supposed to be the cadillac of CDing but just didnt like them. I liked the thirties and have heard more good things about them then the kushies. I would recommend contacting a diaper company like bumrite diapers out of napa...just call her and she will give you the best advice in the world. hope that helps...
