I was given the opportunity to review the Baby Babu Cloth Pocket One Size Minky Diaper in the Abstract Brown Fuzzy print. I have to say, I really like minky material, it's so soft and fuzzy but oh so buttery at the same time! Things that I noticed that were different right off the bat with the Baby Babu diaper:
- There are 2 openings on the diaper, one on each end.
- The included insert has a snap on one end to help hold it in place
- Double gussets to help prevent "blow-outs"
- 3 snap closure
So something to note about our current diaper stash is that Kiggster is already on the largest settings of all our one-size diapers and she is no where close to the maximum weight guideline. She is currently around 21 pounds (a tad shy of it) but she has these awesome, super cute thighs that just don't fit well into most diapers. We retired some one-size diapers in the past because it was so tight around her thighs it would leave these deep red marks. So I wasn't sure how the Baby Babu diapers would fit for her either. It is said to fit between 8 to 35+ pounds and I am happy to say she is not on the largest setting! There is still plenty of room to grow! Below is a picture of Kiggster in the diaper on the largest setting-notice the serious sagging because it's so big on her?!
I really like the snap on the insert because it helps keep the insert in place, especially since I have such a little wiggle worm when it comes to diaper changes! I do wish the openings were a tiny bit bigger but having the snap for the insert helps tremendously. The website says that there are 2 openings on the diaper so that you don't have to take out the inserts for each washing but it will self-agitate out. However, since I have to pull out all the inserts in my other diapers anyways, I did not take full advantage of this option and was a little afraid it wouldn't come out since the opening seemed a bit small.
I am in love with the double gussets on this diaper, it is such a great idea! My daughter is a heavy-wetter for night times and so for her sleep diaper, we put in a second insert (also from Baby Babu). In our other diapers, if my daughter slept the wrong way or moved too much during her sleep, we would have leakage on our hands, but with the Baby Babu double gussets and snap-on insert, we had dry sheets the next morning and didn't have to worry about how she slept!
The diapers washed really well too. We've been trying to potty train her but we can't let her go diaper-less since she's not always telling us when she needs to go potty yet. So for the accidents that have happened in her diaper, after throwing it into the wash, it looks like new and still does after a month of usage!
