***UPDATE: I ventured into using inserts and doublers recently (Hemp only because this is not a pocket diaper) and discovered that a good hemp insert on top will extend the wear time of this diaper. Woo! This would be a great idea for parents who want to extend the life of this diaper especially if it still fits their baby and you don't feel like you wasted your money on the diaper AND because there is strong likelihood that this may be one of the few diapers that actually fit your baby from day one (such was the case with our baby). I know some reviews say "don't waste your money, just get an AIO', but I can't agree. AIOs were enormous on my almost 7lb newborn, so it's worth a shot to invest in 1 or 2 or these and rotate maybe with some prefolds especially if cloth diapering from day 1 is important to you. My favorite hemp insert is BabyKicks. Hope this helps.
- The ease of an all-in-one, especially if you are newbie to cloth diapers, or if your little one has other caregivers.
- Nice snug fit for those tiny bodies.
- My daughter outgrew the absorbency capability before she outgrew the size. Since it's an all-in-one and it's so tiny, it's difficult to add inserts for extra absorbency.
- No newborn cord cut-out. My daughter's cord fell off very early (4 days) so this wasn't a huge issue, but these diapers still irritated her belly button for several days after the cord fell off.
I only had three of these, and they were my go-to diaper the first month when I wanted something "cute" if we were going to be somewhere where people would see her diapers. But she outgrew the absorbency quickly, and there are better options out there for sizing and newborn cord issues. I would buy these again for the cute factor if money weren't an issue, but if you're trying to be penny-wise, keep looking! (My favorites are the Softbums Echo).
My baby came home from the hospital weighing 6 lbs 13 ounces and was 18.5" long. The diapers didn't fit right at first. They fit nicely around her tummy (although the rise is much too high for the umbilical cord) but was too lose around her legs.
Because these diapers irritated her umbilical cord (even when folded down) and the leg openings were too large, I had to wait until she was 2 weeks old to begin using them. At that time, they worked and fit amazingly well. I initially loved them. However, by 4 weeks of age, she "outgrew" the absorbancy and leaked through these diapers constantly. (This wasn't a repelling issue and I change diapers every 1 - 2 hours during the day.) I don't consider her a heavy wetter. Bumgenius does offer newborn doublers for these diapers, but it makes them quite bulky and sort of defeats the purpose of spending extra money on a diaper that is supposed to be an "all-in-one."
Now that she is 5 weeks old and 9 lbs 15 ounces, these diapers are starting to get too tight around her tummy. They also don't seem like they would hold up all that well. I used these in a rotation of 36 diapers for a mere 3 weeks. They are pilly, the outside has a bit of wear in the back where the velcro tabs rub on them and the velcro tabs look like they are beginning to curl. I have washed these according to manufacturer's instructions. I've also been washing diapers for years - so I'm not inexperienced with this. I've never had another brand of diaper wear like this. Overall, I am pretty disappointed with these.
I started off wanting to exclusively use one type of cloth diaper (gDiapers) but quickly found out that, since babies come in all different shapes and sizes, not all cloth diaper solutions work for every baby in every situation.
These diapers say they are for babies from about 6lbs to 12lbs and I would say that is about right although we only wore them twice at about 8lbs and they were very trim but seemed to for just fine.
I tried this diaper with my twin girls when I was looking for an overnight solution that would allow me to go 4 hours between diaper changes without leaks. They were about 7-8 lbs at this time and very tall and skinny. This diaper did fit them just fine and seemed to seal well around the legs, which was an issue I was having wih most other diapers. The problem was with absorbency, it just wasn't there when compared to other newborn diapers like Lil Joey's AIO and Blueberry Pockets.
The Velcro secures quite nicely and the fit is very trim, but I feel this is partly because it completely lacks in adequate wet zone material!
Bottom Line: Pros: very soft, Super cute designs. Easy to use. Good in the small baby range that most cloth diapers miss.
Cons: you can't add absorbancy since this is a trim fittin AIO. ALSO, they are so small there is no way to add an insert on top. Which unfortunately it needs as it can't hold the urine that anything other than a few day old infant will produce
For my little Skinny Minnie's, I preferred Lil Joeys until they got some leg chub, now that they are starting to top out on the weight scale (we probably will still get 14 lbs out of those diapers) we purchased Rumparooz diaper covers as they are the mother company of Lil Joey and also have the double leg gussets!!
