We've heard the debate about doubling vs. inserts, but what about a diaper with higher capacity vs. one with a lower capacity with inserts?
Other than a recent bag of Molicare Soft Super (which I didn't really like), I haven't worn diapers since the start of my last long-term vanilla relationship, and I understand that a lot has changed about product offerings since then! I used to like Lille Supreme Maxis as a good and cost-effective product, but - you've guessed it - the new cloth cover puts me off.
Here is my dilemma: for the same price per diaper as a Lille Supreme Maxi (stated absorbency 3370ml), I could get the Lille Classic Extra, which IS plastic-backed for now, and add a couple of boosters (2400ml + 600ml + 600ml = 3600ml - both options are around £0.50 in total). Would that be as effective, or indeed better? Or would I just be better off paying a bit more for a plastic-backed diaper still in production, like a Tena Slip Maxi (despite the lower stated capacity - around £0.60) or a Abena Delta Form M3 (around £0.68)?
It is vital that any option:
1. Can take flooding
2. Fit closely (I am on the very bottom end of the sizing for medium and am also a girl, so mediums tend to run a bit big for my waist, though smalls too small for my hips and the absorbency so much lower)
3. Have the comfort and working capacity for extended wear
Help much appreciated... I'm confused by all the choice these days! Thank you!
