Another Sunbaby Update

First off, they have the cutest frog print right now!

But I wanted to update you all on how it's going with us. We have been using our Sunbaby diapers for nearly 4 months now. Still loving them. I had originally said I was worried that poop would get into the pocket opening. It hasn't really been a problem. When I spray them off, I just make sure not to spray the poop in the direction of the opening. I usually hold the diaper sideways.

I had also mentioned that some off the snaps weren't tight enough-- never been a problem once they are fully dressed. I'm not saying that it's because of me, because I imagine others said something too... But I did mention it to her when I had that one replaced. I told her it appeared that the snaps were being pressed on crooked. I have placed two other orders since, and have not had problems with any of them. They all snap perfectly.

I generally change diapers every 2.5-3.5 hrs. Unless a) their clothes are getting tight or b) they are playing in their exersaucers, we hardly have any leaks. I have noticed that if they poop without me knowing that their pee might leak out. I am assuming it's because the poop acts like a dam, causing the pee to puddle up. This happens with all of our diapers though.

For our babies these diapers fit very well. They are my DHs favorite ones to use. We are very pleased. I want to say well worth the investment, but it makes me feel like I've spent an arm and a leg when I haven't. Let's just say that this is one instance where the saying "you get what you pay for" doesn't apply. These diapers are worth more than what she's charging for them, IMHO.

Yay!! I finally got around to my first Sunbaby order on the 17th. I have two of the frog prints coming (Figure it'll make for a cute diaper picture of my boys Wink ), one blue grid and one blue dot. I will still need more diapers so I'll probably order more but she updates prints so often that I'm hoping she has some more cute boy prints next time. I think someone said every 2-3 months she has new prints so I'm thinking by October, which will be right around the time I'll want to order some so I have enough one-size diapers once this LO outgrows the newborn diapers.
I am really glad to hear how well you are liking them! I don't think I'll ever spend so much on diapers again. I've had the worst luck with some of my more expensive diapers whereas the 'cheap' ones haven't given me problems!

I really still like mine too. I had no problems with snaps, leaks, or anything else. I had stink and rash issues, but that was with ALL my diapers, not just the Sunbabies. They are adorable, easy to use, and seem to hold up well. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, although they are on the small side (my stringbean 12 month old is on the largest snap setting for the leg and 2nd largest for the waist) so maybe not good for chunksters.

And yes--thanks for the continued review! Your reviews are what convinced me to buy in the first place, and I am so glad I did!

Ours are still holding up great too. I tuck the outer flap into the pocket to prevent any messes getting in there, but right now its not an issue because DS is trying to get used to more solids in his diet so his poop is quite hard/firm. We do get the occasional leak, but its usually my fault, and I don't notice any more leaks with the Sunbaby's than I do with the Fuzzibunz. When we get pg with our next baby I will definitely be ordering more of these Biggrin

Hmm.. I missed the blue dot and grid. That might be a good thing.. Smile

Lol I'll post pictures when they get here. They sold out fast, the blue dot was gone the day after I ordered and the blue grid shortly after that. I've been following a message board that the owner of Sunbaby diapers frequents and so I knew when the new prints would be out. I guess there is a Sunbaby fan page on facebook too now, I'll wait to fan that one until I get the diapers Wink I'm anticipating really liking them though, it seems a lot of people do.

Hmmm... Just read on the fan page where the lady is saying she is too buy to fill small orders right now.. :/ I placed my order for 3 before reading that. I'm hoping she will take the order and not refund my money. Sad I could use the two black ones, and I LOVE the frogs, but I don't need another 12, that's for sure.

Oh, and there was a post saying that the newer prints are larger. They are now on version 4.0.
