Charcoal bamboo inserts, when used correctly, can work wonders – but can be a disaster, too! Read the combinations that work best and what to avoid.
Different Cloth Diapers
You read the title right. I have doubted the Bum Genius Pocket Diapers from Day 1. But it always tries to impress me. NO LEAKS. VERY ABSORBENT. NO WET BEDS. I have no right to complain at all. But why did I not end up buying more of this instead? Read more about our experience with the Bum Genius pocket diapers.
The Osocozy prefold might be the best option for parents who haven’t found their perfect newborn cloth diaper yet. It comes in sizes and size one is perfect for babies from 7-15 pounds. Should it not fit your child who might be less than 7 lbs, you can just adjust the fold before fastening accordingly.
For toddlers, expect to use it as an insert inside a pocket diaper. If you lay it flat on top of a reliable All-In-Two cover like the Best Bottoms cover, you can have better results. It has been a cheap, good backup every time I ran out of inserts. Although not highly absorbent as the other cloth diaper inserts I have, it is a step higher than training pants.
My daughter used the Imagine Baby pocket cloth diaper for nine months (last few months in our cloth diapering stage). Here’s my verdict.
When I first bought the EcoAble Baby Charcoal Bamboo All-In-One from Amazon, I was a bit hesitant. The brand “Ecoable” was not very familiar with me, but the product has something that my other cloth diapers don’t have. It is a combination of an All-In-One cloth diaper and a pocket cloth diaper. That means the inserts are already sewn with the cover (inside the pockets), and you still have the option to put an extra insert inside to boost absorbency. After using this cloth diaper for exactly 9 months now, can I confidently say that this is a top rated cloth diaper? Read more about our experience.
I still don’t understand why parents seem to praise this combination like a star. The cover is of average quality and the inserts, oh, don’t let me start talking about it again, LOL. I just hated it so much I returned it to Amazon. Here’s my take on the Thirsties Duo diaper covers and inserts.
The saying “first impressions last” is not applicable for this particular diaper we own. Read more to learn what I love and hate (mostly hate, LOL) about the Grovia cloth diaper.
Not bulky, lightweight, unique style and nice feel of soft materials used but the diaper will be outgrown easily. Read my verdict of the Bum Genius diaper.
If I am given the chance to be a mother again, I would definitely go for this All-In-Two system. I can reuse the cover for 2 days and they dry so fast even when hand-washed. But I will definitely get the same charcoal bamboo insert to answer the absorbency needs I want without getting too bulky.
If you are after the best one size cloth diapers for newborns, Rumparooz One Size Cloth Diaper Snap and Soakers is definitely more ideal as it can be resized to the smallest setting compared to all cloth diapers I have in my stash. And if you happen to have a 29-month-old toddler who is not chunky as mine, you might just be able to still use the covers until you have a potty-trained toddler.
