In Reply to: Questions from newcomer to ME diapers... posted by daisymommy on December 12, 19103 at 18:29:05:
Hi and Welcome. I will try to answer your questions as honestly as I can. These are just My oppinions.
-Are unbleached Onesize diapers softer than the bleached ones?
I find the Unbleached A bit softer then The Bleached. I really preffer the unbleached myself.
-Do the ME Onesize diapers really still fit at 35lbs.?
Not on my little girl. She is 16 months and weighes about 23lbs and is about 33inches tall. They JUST still fit her. So I am not sure what 35lb baby they fit but I would say they only fit until 25lbs, just my oppinion though.
-Do you diapers stink even after being washed? I've heard that diapers with polyester can retain odors.
I have never had an oder problem after my diapers have been washed. I wash on a long wash in very hot water with Tide Free. Then I run them through once more with no Soap. Just to make sure there rinsed well.
I think that the OS are o.k but for myself I preffer the Sandy's. I know going with OS is cheeper but in the long run I would have had to of bought at lest Toddler Ease to get me through until potty training. I also find the Sandy's more absorbent. I started with Cloth late so i have never used the X-Small or Small sandy's but I can say that I like the Large Sandy's over the OS. I Hope this Helps. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask away, alot of the ladies here have some great info and advice. Take Care for now and Keep Smiling.
