so i have a stash of iD expert super slips in size small, and i just can't figure out if it's considered a cloth, or a plastic backed diaper. here's why i'm confused about it: on every review about the iD expert super slip that i've read online, it was said that it's plastic backed, really crinkly, and comes with double tapes (blue and white tapes). but every review was for a size medium, and i have them in size small, so i figured that there could be other differences between them than just their size.
anyway, my small sized iD has almost no crinkle sound when compared to my plastic backed attends S10, which are REALLY crinkly, and does not have those double blue and white tapes, but just one, single use tape.
i cut the tape with scissors to see if there's another tape there, but it wasn't. also, when the tape is used, it can't be removed without ripping the backing of the diaper, and losing almost all of its stickiness. (so, no double tapes)
the backing looks, and feels like cloth, so i checked by ripping a bit of it off, and to me, it doesn't look like a piece of ripped plastic, but more like paper/cloth.
then there are the front wings, which are see through, feel like a piece of thin cloth, breathable (didn't make my butt sweat, unlike plastic backed attends) and not water resistant. i already had a bad leak through the front wings.
so i messed around with the diaper to see what else i can find, and i found out that the cloth sheet can easily be peeled off the diaper, and when it's peeled off, it reveals a nice, smooth plastic backing underneath.
so, the thing i want to know: is this an example of an ordinary cloth backed diaper, or is this just a plastic backed diaper with a cloth sheet over it?
i'm still on my first stash of diapers, and i had no idea what kind of backing they all had when i ordered them, and now i'm thinking about enhancing my stash with some cloth backed abenas, so i want to know if they are similar to those iDs, which i really like so far, putting that one and only bad leak aside.
sorry if i was too long, but i love writing long texts, and i really like to get into details, so i don't fail to explain anything
