I asked some questions about CDing in general a little while ago but now that I am planning to purchase some within the next month or month and half I just had a couple more questions.

I really like the look and design of the Bum Genius AIO 2.0 Diapers.. I think that is what they are called.. I may be wrong.. and if I am I'm sorry I'm terribly new and confused about this.. they are the one size diapers that are supposed to fit unitl 35lbs or so.

I have seen bad reviews on the Bum Genius diapers but everything I have seen about the 2.0 diapers have been positive. Is there anyone who has used theese one size wonders.. and how do they really work.

I think I am planning on using something else either spoises or prefolds until she get s a bit bigger to fit in theese, but how do they work on a little baby seeing that they can fit a 35lb child? Any problem with leaks or anything else I should be aware about? I don't have anyone else that I can try theese out on to see how they can work so I just want to be prepared to succeed when our lil girl gets here.


*Thank you *Sharon* for my amazing siggy!*

WEll, you ALMOST got them right. The BG One Size diapers (2.0) are pockets, not all in ones (AIO). Which basically just means they have a microfiber insert that goes in between the two layers of the diaper, hence the name, pocket diaper. This is actually a good thing because from what I heard, AIOs take a long time to dry. Plus, with the one size diapers, you might need to adjust the amount of layers, or size of insert you use from size to size, age to age, night time, day time, etc.

I plan on using the prefolds until Caden is about 12 lbs and then go with the BG one size diapers. This was't my plan until recently when they all went on sale, and I managed to snatch up 10 of them for pretty cheap. So now I've got them.

The way they work is that they have snaps to adjust the size (this is called the rise, I believe) of the diaper. For the first size, they are snapped at the smallest size and are about the size of a size one sposie. Then you unsnap then to move up in sizes.

I didn't start CD'ing until Lily was eight months old so I have no experience using BG 2.0 OS on a newborn. I've heard the fit isn't that great and due to the fact that new babies eliminate so often in one day, you'll tear through your BG stash in no time flat. My SIL uses prefolds with covers and a Snappi and loves them - that's my plan for baby #2!
