I love the BG fit, but these are my least favorite. If you're looking for a microfiber diaper, the BG 4.0 pocket diaper is SO much trimmer, and it only takes a couple of seconds to stuff the insert. I don't like the Freetimes because of the bulkiness. That is really the only negative. They're not as absorbent as organic fibers, but that's true for any MF diaper. I would buy the BG elemental over this if you're looking for a great AI1 that is trimmer (by far!) and more absorbent. The only downside on those is they take forever to dry and have some crevices that may make them more likely to build-up.

Did not live up to the hype
I recently started cloth diapering my 3 month old son full time. I bought these diapers because they got fantastic reviews. I've tried these quite a few times, and they just don't fit my chunky boy well at all! I really wanted to like these because everyone that I know that uses them, raves about them. I'm not sure if they will fit him better when he thins out, but as of now, they will be the last diaper that I reach for.

We have had our bumGenius AIO snap diapers for a couple of weeks now and love them. We started out with a different less expensive AIO. The higher quality of the BumGenius was the first thing I noticed. They are a better fit as well. So far they have washed beautifully and they don't take too long to dry. I am looking forward to buying more. My only disappointment is the limited color selection/availability for the snap closures. I don't want to shop elsewhere because Nicki's has been great and the customer service is wonderful, but I would like a better selection.

Work great for baby with vesicostomy
This review is intended for parents of children with a subcutaneous vesicostomy or other urinary diversion. We had a lot of trouble finding a diapering solution for our daughter. Hopefully others will find this info helpful!
Our daughter has a temporary vesicostomy to protect her kidneys from infections. We cloth diapered before her surgery but used covers and flats or snap in inserts. After surgery, all the other diapers we had would slide down and rub on her stoma. We had one Bumgenius Freetime in our stash at that time. They have a high rise and the front flap can be folded to come up higher and cover the stoma. They worked so well that we returned all of our other diapers and bought sixteen Freetimes. She is scooting and crawling and always stays dry. These are currently our nighttime diaper with no additional insert.
Love them. Comfortable for our daughter, easy to rinse with sprayer, easy to wash, easy to strip if you have to use creams.

These have become my favorite diaper of all! I have several brands of pockets, WAHM diapers and these. I love that they are just like a pocket without the stuffing. They have flaps that can be folded over as a doubler depending on boy or girl so these are great as overnight diapers. They wash and dry as well as my pockets. The flaps can be stuffed with additional boosters or it can be laid on the bottom under the flaps. These are by far the trimmest diaper I have. Like all BG they are a little wide in the crotch on my 2 month old but she will grow into them a little more. They work well with BF poo and we have not had any leaks. Love them!
