Been using the echos for 15 months with my son. Baby number 2 is on the way and just ordered more!

Love em- the elastic totally gets the fit just right and once we learnt to TUCK IN ALL FLEECE we didnt have any leaks.

Have had to switch to disposables on occasion due to yeast rashes and allergy/teething rashes. He has sensitive skin and the creams have wrecked some liners so now I dont even use the AIOs when we are dealing with this.

I do use Rockin green soap - has worked the best for getting them all clean

LOVE our softbums! With a bamboo pod, they are super trim and my go-to for leak-free outings. I use the super thick old style fleece topped microfiber in our echos with no problem too. The pods are nice and wide and sometimes you have to run a finger along the fleece to tuck everything in once it's on so you don't get leaks, but I LIKE this, as the pod goes to the edge and I truly get to use the system as an AI2. We usually only use 2-4 shells a day, some shells get used as many as 5-6 times! I Love the super sticky aplix for a great fit, and the slide system is awesome, because I can easily adjust the fit in only a few seconds while on the bum. We use Omnis for overnight and have no leaks there either. These make up a majority of our stash!

Noticed some other reviews about bad red marks and lots of leaks. I'm wondering if maybe they just didn't have the fit quite right. In the beginning it did take us a few weeks to get everything all figured out (we were new to CDing in general), but now even my husband has zero problems getting a great fit on our 17lb 7mo old. I have a large rotation of shells, but I find they're of high quality and hold up very well. Also, I've yet to find better aplix out there. For those that have velcro coming loose or other quality issues, I'd contact Softbums, as they have great customer service, and really do have quality products!

Since I got my Softbums, they are all I want to use. I had become very apathetic about cloth diapering, but have fallen head over heels in love with it now. This is by far the BEST cloth diaper I have ever had my hands on. It is surprisingly trim, works fantastically, and I can tell my little one is more comfortable in Softbums than in anything else I've put on him. They shells alone work great as a reusable swim diaper too. I have their other system too and slightly prefer that because it has a pocket too, but other than that this diaper cannot be beat. The sizing system shames any other diaper on the market. No red marks, no leaks. I hate all my other diapers now!

I bought one of these used and liked it, so I bought another one brand new. I liked them at first because of the thick inserts for nighttime and the slide2size legs. Very trim, especially between the legs. But these great things are also drawbacks and I've come to not like them as much. The super nighttime pods are very large--long and wide and they are tough to keep tucked into the diaper and we get leaks at night. I have to add a hemp insert, and even that doesn't always work. They are bulky and hard to get a tight fit on my 27lb 14 month old. The dry touch daytime pods are also pretty wide and you have to tuck them in to make sure they aren't hanging out the crotch area. Also, the inner fleece lining is ""rolling"" outward on the shell at the waist and tabs, causing wicking. The older used one is holding up better, so maybe the newest ones aren't the best quality. Lastly, the fleece always ends up wet once DS pees, so it's nearly impossible to use as an AI2. Overall, they are absorbent, but you have to be very careful to avoid leaks and the quality of the shells isn't great

Owner at Kushie Tushies. This was our first cloth diaper. Excellent fit, very trim, love the bamboo pods. One mistake we made was not adjusting the diaper to fit snug enough, once we did we rarely had leaks. All out great diaper! :)

I spent weeks researching the cloth diaper route I wanted to take for my children and when I found Softbums I knew I had found the best of the best! They are so wonderful! Fit any baby/toddler anytime and are so easy to adjust! Plus I know I can call Softbums anytime I have a question for anything and they will take the time to help me through anything! And they are so cute!

Purchased in /. Used this item for 13 months. Date Posted: 5/27/2012

I have been using softbums for 13 months on my son. I wasn't able to use the fleece lined microfiber inserts because they wicked almost every time. We got the bamboo inserts and I LOVE those! They also sun very well. My main issues with these is that the velcro seems to be poor quality. It has become super fuzzy and the stitches are coming out on quite a few. I want to replace it myself with either snaps or better velcro. The other issue I have is that once DS started walking and moving around a lot he would get horrible red marks on his legs. I couldn't figure out what it was from until I stopped using the cover more than once. The red marks were gone after that. When he wasn't mobile it was fine. Also, some of the bamboo inserts are wider than others, so some don't fit into the echo shell. All in all though, these diapers are leak proof (as long as not using as a pocket.) I have had only a few leaks with the omni pockets. These are my boyfriends 'go-to' diapers for ease of use (no snapping down, no snaps to secure it to baby, and no stuffing.)!

I have been using softbums since January or February and have loved them from the start!!! It is an amazing diapering system, and its so easy to use!! I use both the echo and omni and go back and forth on which is my favorite between the two. I use the dry touch pods only and love them. The fit is always great and nice and trim. I have been using them on my daughter who is now 18 months but am due to have a little boy in a few weeks and hope that they work as well for him as they have with with her. I've never had any leaking or repelling, stripping, or stinkies. I just can't stop raving about the product because I am so pleased with it. Starting cloth is a big investment and its scary but I know I made the right decision with softbums
