I purchased 24 One Size Dry diapers over a year ago to use for my second child. With my first child, I used the original bleached One Size diapers (I had the part-time package). But I hated how wet his skin felt at each diaper change: especially after a nap or when he woke up in the morning. Then to my delight, Motherease came out with the new Dry One Sizes. I am so pleased with how they work to keep the skin dry. I don't ever use the original One Size diapers on their own anymore. I snap a One Size Dry Liner into a regular One Size diaper for naps or night time, which also works pretty well to keep most of the skin dry.
However, like owen's mommy, I found they are not as stretchy as the regular bleached One Sizes, which means my oldest, who is quite skinny, grew out of them right after he turned two years old. That really disappointed me. I called Motherease-this was over a year ago, by the way, so things might be different now-and asked why they aren't as stretchy. The customer service woman said it is because the One Size Dry diapers are made with only the unbleached diaper material, which isn't as strechy as the bleached diaper material(still doesn't make any sense to me!)
That's the only problem I've experienced with them so far. Otherwise, they dry just as fast and are just as absorbant as the original One Size diapers. So, my advice is to go with the Dry diapers if you can afford to buy toddlease or another larger size diaper when your child grows out of them and still isn't potty-trained :)
Sue B.: Wondering if the One Size Dry diapers work as well as the regular. I hate to invest hundreds of $$ in a purchase without some input from users!
: Are they as absorbant? Do they fit the same? Are they easy to clean? Do they take longer to dry? Does the "dry" material wear out faster than the rest of the diaper? Do they pill?
