Pros: Soft, absorbent, insert pocket
Babykicks Organic One Size Fitted Diaper
Pros: Trim, Absorbent, Washes Well
I love this diaper for my heavy wetting daughter. The first time I used this she took an extra long nap and I was sure she would wake up with wet clothes. The fitted wasn't even soaked through! It is one of the few diapers we use overnight. I never have to put a doubler in it so it stays super trim. She can wear this during the day without a cover and never a leak. I love the color coded snaps. I can tell my husband what color she is on and it makes it so much easier for him to her the right fit. I also like that it is front stuffing making unstuffing messy diapers a chinch. I am looking forward to trying this on our next child due in a few weeks. On it smallest setting it is comparable to some of our newborn diapers. I love how well this diaper washes, never a stain or smell issue. Overall this is my favorite fitted that we own. BabyKicks sent me this diaper to try.
Pros: Super absorbent, fits well.
Cons: Snaps "backwards," needs a cover.
First impressions: Soft, comfy, really cute snaps. And I love anything in hemp--such an absorbent material--and this diaper is both made with hemp/cotton as well as coming with a hemp/cotton blend insert. They had me at hello. (Seriously, if you haven't tried hemp blend cloth diapers DO IT NOW. Your cloth diapering routine will be changed forever.
As for those "cons", the are both things that could be seen as negatives, but that certainly didn't bother me. I'm used to diapers with the bottom snaps on the middle bit of cloth instead of on the side flaps (the opposite of here), so I had to fumble a bit before I was used to putting this one on. But now that I am used to it this is my new favorite night time diaper. I add two extra hemp inserts and don't have to change my daughter for 12+ hours. At first I was a little disappointed that I needed to use a cover with this diaper (for some reason I had noticed this when purchasing), but at this point I am really glad. A large number of our all-in-one diapers have been failing us lately, with liquid leaking right through the "waterproof" material. So at the end of the day I'm glad we didn't go for an all-in-one here, because this diaper is still working just fine.
Other observations: I get a great fit around the leg on this one (my daughter is 13 months, and is a bit of a banana baby ie long and skinny, and we've had problems with leaks around the legs with a lot of cloth diaper brands--but not with this one).
Pros: absorbency, fit
I received this diaper from Babykicks to try and this has become my favorite fitted diaper!
I always use fitteds for nap time with my 10 month old, 22 lb baby because or else she ends up soaking through the diaper and her clothes. What sets this apart from the other fitteds I have is:
The absorbency - this is hands down the most absorbent of my fitted diapers. For me it did take more than 4 washes to really be fully prepped and able to hold up to my heavy wetter, but now it works great.
The fit - A lot of fitted diapers get to be bulky and this diaper is still able to be relatively trim while still being absorbent. There is still room to grow even with my chunky baby.
I definitely plan to get more of these.
Pros: quality and fit
First, I would like to note that I did receive the BabyKicks Organic One Size Fitted for review. I have given this diaper an overall rating of five stars based on the following:
Absorbency. The absorbency of this diaper has far surpassed what I expected in just a handful of uses so far. As with all cloth diapers, there is a prepping process to go through to ensure that the diaper reaches is maximum absorbency; the more you wash, the better this becomes. I have only put this fitted through roughly 4-5 washes, this does include normal wash routines after use, and it is holding up perfectly for my heavy wetter! I have to say that I was a bit skeptical when I pulled it out of the package, as it seemed so thin. So far, we have had no problems with this fitted keeping up with my little one. We have been able to go anywhere from 4-10 hours in this diaper alone. It is a great option for overnight use.
Fabric. This diaper is super-plush and oh-so-soft for baby's bottom. You can rest assured that this fabric placed against the skin will not cause irritation, dryness, or rash the way that a fabric such as microfiber would. We have quite a wide variety of diapers that we use in rotation that include some minky fabrics. This diaper is softer than every one in our stash. It is made of 50% certified organic cotton, 33% natural hemp, and 17%% polyester. Hemp eliminates the occurrence of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus, which means less diaper rash and less worries about damage to the diaper between washing. One of the things I am noticing more and more with this fitted is that the more we wash, the softer it becomes. You "wear it in", not "wear it out".
Pocket. This diaper has a front pocket where you can add to the absorbency of the diaper. It did come with One Size JoeyBunz insert which I have been using in the pocket. The pocket fits to the shape of the insert so that there is no slipping, sliding, maneuvering, etc ... as the child moves around; and let me tell you that I have quite the little gymnast! For the sake of this review, I did take a few other inserts that we had sitting around to see if they would fit in the pocket. Pretty much any of the other inserts were able to fit properly, however I did find that it made the diaper much more bulky if they were not a JoeyBunz insert.
Snaps: One problem I have had recently is buying a diaper with snaps, and the snaps are difficult to fit; even in brand new diapers. These snaps easily fit together, no weight training needed to snap these together and no prying to get them apart. They are quality snaps. Plus, who can resist multi-colored accents? Also, if you are shopping for fitted diapers, you will notice that many of them do not include snaps. They simply fold together, so they must always be worn with a cover or you will need to purchase an accessory item such as Snappi fasteners, Boingos, or diaper pins. No need for those here. Another thing to note is that side-snapping fitted diapers are not exactly mainstream, although I have to say they should be!
Breathable. While this diaper does need a cover to be waterproof, it is a great option for letting your little one get a little air to their bottom without the worry of the infamous 'finger painting' (isn't it lovely?!) or just messes on the floor. We have tried this option in many other combinations of flats, prefolds, etc... and it always ends in disaster. When using with a cover, be minded that any cover will work with this fitted. There is no need to purchase specific covers to fit. You can use any PUL cover. Even if you have a favorite pocket diaper, you can just pop the diaper over the fitted, without the pocket insert of course.
Fit. This diaper, even with an insert and cover, is extremely trim. I have found that most BabyKicks products have this in common. I do not mind a fluffy bum, but who wants a thick, bulky diaper when you can opt for a trim fit? I was able to compare the fit of baby's pants in a BabyKicks fitted vs an Earth's Best natural disposable, and found that there is generally no difference in fit of pants with either one. It is that trim. I really like the placement and fit of the elastic around the legs. It does eliminate that pesky leaking.
Overall, I absolutely love this diaper. It is great quality and well worth the investment. I love it enough that I am off to purchase more online today! Keep this product in mind if you are in the market for fitted diapers. You will not be disappointed.
When I bought this I didn't realize it was a POCKET fitted. What a great idea! So nice to be able to put an insert in it during the day and more heavy duty prefolds at night. I have never had a leak with this diaper under a cover, and that's what I love about fitteds - absorbency wraps around the baby. So no matter what, there is material there to absorb. The fabric is thin, which allows the diaper to be very trim. Obviously depending on what you put inside the pocket it will affect how trim it becomes. My son is 9 months, 19 lbs and he'll be able to wear these well beyond 1 year. Still lots of room in the rise and the waist at this point.
