This is the basic diaper. It has 3 size settings. Small, Medium and Large. It only has one row of snaps at the top. The outer is made of TPU with the inner being a microfibre suede ( not fleece)
Currently I have it on the medium setting for my 2 month old son is who 15lbs
|The insert is very easy to insert into the diaper.|
|All stuffed and ready to go.|
|The pocket is elasticized to keep the insert from falling out.|
This is my son wearing the diaper. Although the snaps for the body of the diaper are adjusted to medium, even at 15 lbs the waist snaps are still done to the tightest. I don't see how a smaller baby would be able to wear the diaper.I have used these diapers for a few days now. The ten I have get me through about 2 days. I use a different diaper at night. Even when the inserts are soaking wet, my son's bottom is still dry. I have had a few leaks with them along the top and the legs when he was really wet and had been wearing them for at least 2 hrs.
Pros: Really easy to wash and dry. I put them in the machine on cold with a bit of liquid detergent. I then hang the covers to dry and put the inserts in the dryer. The covers dry very quickly hanging up as they are very thin.
Really affordable. I bought 10 diapers for $50 and the shipping was free.
Cons: Some leaks. This could change though as the diapers are washed more and no longer have any oils and such on them.
The waist is not as adjustable and would possibly not fit some smaller infants.
Overall for the price, it is a good diaper. My son seems to like them and they are easy to put on and take off.
Update: I originally posted this review 2 years ago. Since then I have continued to use these diapers for Benjy and now for Johnny. We have recently begun potty training Benjy who is now 30lbs. The diapers still fit him fine, although they were starting to get a bit tight. These diapers were part of the stash I sent to the sitter's everyday as they had no hip snaps and could quickly be put on. The Chief preferred these ones as he found them the easiest to put on.
Johnny now wears the diapers. After 2 years of use, the elastics have relaxed in some and the PUL is a bit thinner. The diapers still work great. I don't find I have any leaks any more as I double stuff the diapers since Johnny pees so much. I imagine if I had double stuffed them when Benjy was smaller I would have not had the leaking issues.
Another update on my washing process is I wash on hot now. Hot kills bacteria. Rinse cold, hot wash/cold rinse, extra cold rinse with free and clear detergent.
