Thirsties fab fitted... anyone?

Postby Mor_to_4 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 6:50 am

anyone have these? i am ordering 3 more covers, and wanted to try the fab fitted of theirs. anyone have a review on it? im going to look at the diaper pin too, to see any reviews there, BUT how does it fit? does it fit snug like say a pianissimo? do they run small? large? how about leg elasticity?

I haven't tried them before, but you were comparing them to the fit of the PC fitteds. The fab fitteds aren't traditional fitteds and have microfiber in the core for the absorbency instead of something like bamboo or cotton in other fitteds.

I have a bunch for the newborn stage, but obviously I haven't used them yet. I like that they have a Stay Dry inner, too. And you can build absorbency by adding a doubler to the sleeve part of the diaper. I can let you know how they hold up in a couple of weeks after DS2 is born!! I'll use them and post some reviews. The plan is to try to use them mostly overnight at first so we don't have to fool with a Snappi when we are delirious in the middle of the night!

I have a couple size medium fab fitteds. They still fit DD at 16 months. I definitely have to use a doubler with her since she's a heavy wetter. They're very soft and cozy.

I have 3 size smalls that I use on my 2 week old. He is almost 10 lbs and they fit great. So far they have contained the messy BF'd poo's, I wish I would have bought more of them. At first I used them at night until I was good at using snappi's. Now I leave them for DH to use when he changes diapers.

I just bought 2. They are the newer version that has a pocket for better drying and a place to stuff if needed. They fit well with great elastic. They run pretty true to size (size 2 20-40lbs). They are a bit more bulky than I thought they would be and they take SOOOOO long to dry. Even longer than my BG AIO size med diapers. They have a scoop shape though to help hold all the "mess" in. They are not gonna be a favortie of mine though. I prefer prefolds over them if that says anything.
