>I was very excited to get my package today (yesterday by the time I got around to finishing & publishing this).  The colors are lighter than I’d expected, which is the opposite of what I’d experienced with the bumgenius. 

The monkey print I chose for the Happy Heiny’s diaper is adorable!!  It confuses me a bit though because it has 4 rows of snaps.  Most one size diapers have 3 rows.  All open for large, 1st to second for medium and third for small.  I’m guessing it must be an extra small setting?

The Blueberry Minky diaper is super soft and very cute.

My initial instinct is that the Bumgenius are nicer than all of these others. 

The BG pockets are kind of hidden, rather than just open at the top of the diaper, and it has additional waterproof material at the front and back to prevent wicking onto baby’s clothing if the insert were near the front or back. 

The BG inserts also seem much larger, which makes me think they would be more absorbent & would be more likely to work with the single insert alone on the larger settings, rather than having to use the doublers.

Lastly, as much as I’ve heard people say the BG laundry tabs stop working over time, these other diapers’ laundry tabs seem useless already.  I had a heck of a time getting them to stick when getting them ready to wash the first time.  After I’ve washed the BGs, I actually struggle to get the velcro OFF the laundry tabs!

I had a bit of a diaper chain when I got them out of the wash.  They are hanging to dry and I am starting the process of washing the blueberry diaper’s insert multiple times.  It is made of hemp and it comes with natural oils on it that need to be washed off.  It has to be washed separately to avoid causing absorbency issues on other items, and it will not reach it’s maximum absorbency until after 6-10 washes.

I will with hold judgment until I have seen them in action, but if I had to pick RIGHT NOW which diapers I would prefer more of based on just this initial assessment (and price aside) I would choose more BG 3.0s.
