I didn't think we'd be getting any BumGenius' for size Medium... as I figured velcro was not as cost-effecient as the s-hooks. But hubby has expressed his love for BumGenius several times to me. My favorite are Cubbies, his favorite are BumGenius. This morning when he changed Seamus' diaper I told him he could "use whatever he wants" on him... and I was surprised that he used a Cubbie, because Gwyddion isn't a huge fan of the s-hooks. He likes the simplicity of velcro... but (his words, not mine) "all the velcro diapers we have suck". lol. I don't think they suck, but whatever, lol.

Anyways, so this morning I made a proposition to DH: I'll sell the 7 Kushies we have (and one of the Bumkins AIO's), and replace them with 6 BumGenius. "I would really like that" He says. And he told me to buy them NOW. haha. So 3 blue and 3 green BumGenius AIO's have been purchased this morning (from AbbysLane). I will take pictures of the Kushies/Bumkins in a day or two (after I wash our current load of diaper laundry since one of the Kushies has been used recently), and they'll be in the Buy/Sell/Trade section... so be on the look out for them!

Kushies are not bad at all... they actually work fairly well for us... but they're not great. They're not as good as BumGenius. And hubby loves BG. Kushies are basically seen as the generic brand in the "cloth diapering world". Great if you're on a tight budget, but they're not the best out there.

This way we'll have my favorite diapers (the Cubbies) AND Gwyddion's favorite diapers (BumGenius). So like I said, anyone interested in Kushies and/or Bumkins, be on the lookout for them in the BST section! (also, to add as a reminder... there's still a Bumkins cover I have for sale there too. )

...there wasnt a real point to this thread... just diaper chat hehe.

I do have three BG's of my own, the one sizers, but, although velcro is easy for dad, it's also easy for babe! Devin knows how to undo the velcro tabs, so if he's just running around in a BG and no pants, I often find a streaker in my house. Therefore, my pocket stash will consist of Cubbies and FB's.

AJ can undo his velcro too - I have to make sure his dipe is covered or he is bare bottomed within minutes of a diaper change.

ETA: I have kushies too - and they were a favorite of mine for awhile. They were great for the price and everything to start with. I would probably use them again - need to sell ones I have to get bigger dipes.
