OhSewCrafty:I absolutely love my shells and inserts!!
I've tried the shells, inserts and OS AIO.
I like the shells. They are really trim and cute.
DD is a peeing machine, so the snap-in inserts just weren't absorbent enough. I prefer to simply tri-fold a prefold in the shell instead. More absorbent...and dries much faster when laundering.
The AIO also was not absorbent enough. And took forever to dry. I live in a coastal area, so it seriously took 4 days of line drying or 2+ hours in the dryer. As much as I wanted to like it, I didn't and these were the first diapers I ended up de-stashing about a year ago.
I love the shells. The inserts are still too big (have to be folded in front) at 6 months, so I mostly use them over fitteds. They are kept for extras in the diaper bag because of how little space they take up. The aplix is good, still very sticky. I like the snaps, but DH and our parents have trouble figuring out the hip snap (horizontal instead of vertical). The nb AIOs didn't work out well. The were adorable, so I kept using them, but the cotton lined ones wicked like crazy. I would think the stay dry ones would work though, and you can stick extra absorbency under the tongue.
Kovak:Do you all prefer the snaps or aplix on these?
