If you have been browsing around my site, you will probably know that we have been religiously using the Charlie Banana One Size Diapers. Nearing my 2nd year of cloth diapering, I began to get curious as to how other brands perform as well especially at night.

So I have bought the Rumparooz One Size Pocket Diaper as one of the diapers to compare with my Charlie Banana.

Rumparooz One Size Pocket Diaper For Starters


 

Adjusting the Rumparooz to the right size uses a button system. All the buttons outside the snap cover represent a certain size. Look for the furthest button and that would be the newborn size (6 pounds) and keep it unbuttoned to get the largest size.

You can put the inserts in the pocket. If you are not using the pocket, you have the option to lay the soakers (inserts) outside.

I feel that they have a good design of the interior. A double inner gusset is available in Rumparooz to prevent leakage. See the photo.

Covers Reusability


 

My then 26-month-old daughter (31 pounds) initially wasn’t able to use the one size cover at all. It fits so tight on her waist I cannot even take a photo.

After successfully giving my other cloth diaper cover a good stretch using a baby hanger, I have decided to do the same for Rumparooz One Size pocket diapers.

It did manage to loosen up a bit but not to the point where I can use two buttons on each side. Nevertheless, my toddler doesn’t seem to mind the fit anymore. She slept comfortably last night from 12:30 am to 5 am without any leaks. 🙂

I would keep on giving the cover a good stretch every after wash, and hopefully, the covers will also loosen up after several months use.

The covers also never fail to keep the wetness inside. I have tried to use them on my daughter for overnight and it can last for 3.5 hours of comfortable wetness without leaking – and we are talking about a heavy-wetter here.

 

Quality


 

The covers are soft to touch and the soaker feels soft on the skin.

The Rumparooz soakers are one of the most reliable inserts that I have in my stash. I have been using them for 11 months now and they perform better the more we use it. The covers also never fail to keep the wetness inside.

The Best Part


 

The thing I like most about the Rumparooz One Size is the buttons outside. No more digging into the pocket to adjust the size, and no more struggling with adjusting the strap system (Charlie Banana).

Also, worth noting is that the cover’s sides have a thing (technically called as inner gussets) to prevent leaking. And did I mention that the buttons (snap closure) have a LIFETIME WARRANTEE? Yup. The only cloth diaper I know (so far), that confidently gives a lifetime warranty on buttons.:)

How To Take Care Of Your Cloth Diapers


 

We don’t use baking soda anymore and we also stopped using the wet pail system in exchange for a wet bag. It is way cleaner and the smell is all hidden and doesn’t stick to the bag nor to the diapers as long as you wash them within 2 to 3 days of use.

No Bleach. No Softeners.

The wet bag not only kept the smell hidden, but it is also tidier to look at. It is way better than the wet pail!

As for the detergent to use, I AVOID TIDE AT ALL COST. The Tide advice from another mommy blogger during my Charlie Banana’s early months made my stash stink. I almost hated cloth diapering. I still stick to the normal baby detergent Purex, in normal washing mode.

Also, NEVER USE BLEACH AND FABRIC SOFTENERS as it will alter the supposed-to-be awesome performance of the inserts.

If you don’t have access to direct sunlight, expect to wait at least 24 hours before the diaper cover and soakers dry if you hand wash them. Otherwise, it is okay to spin them dry.
 

The Tough Part


 

I wouldn’t say “tough” per se, but if you are going to get this diaper system for full-time use, the price difference per diaper compared to other pocket diapers will surely have a bearing when added up. Full-time cloth diapering parents should have at least 18 pieces in their stash to last for 2 to 3 days (6 a day) unless of course, you are washing them every day.

To justify the price difference, I would like to look at how easy it is to adjust the size using the button system and how soft the interior and the soakers feel. And of course, let’s not forget about the lifetime warranty of the buttons.

I am a sucker for lifetime warranties, and I could’ve bought Rumparooz if I hadn’t been so impulsive about buying the Charlie Banana then. But then again, my almost 2-year old stash of Charlie Bananas are all still fine.

SUMMARY


 
In summary, here are the pros and cons of the Rumparooz One Size Pocket Diaper

Pros:
Soft feel of the inserts (soaker)/inner lining
Lifetime warranty on buttons
Easy to adjust to different sizes
Very absorbent inserts

Cons:
More expensive than most cloth diapers
Covers cannot be used for chunkier toddlers

 

Conclusion


 

I thought I have just wasted money on the Rumparooz one size cover until I decided to give them a good stretch with a baby hanger.

But we have stopped using the Rumparooz cover when my daughter turned 29 months old. She is too chunky to fit in it. Although the soakers are all still good, I use them as spare when we run out of inserts.

Since the Rumparooz soakers stashed inside the Charlie Banana pockets seem to work well (20 ounces of milk for 3.5 hours), the soakers might be a good option for use with an All-In-Two system.

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.

I have submitted my summarized review in Amazon for others to know, too. Check out what others have to say as well.

  1. I’m a big fan of cloth diapers. I used cloth diapers with my son and I always had a difficult time as he grew, because I had to get bigger cloth diapers. I’m really impressed with the rumparooz and how they grow with the baby.

    I was wondering is this cost efficient for first time parents?

    1. Hi Goya,

      The Rumparooz pocket diaper is the first cloth diaper that my daughter outgrew, around her 29th month. I like how you can use it from your child’s first day (since it is the smallest of all) but I think it will only be cost-effective IF you manage to potty train your child before they even outgrew it.

      I know some moms who manage to potty train their kids at 2 years old. If that is the case, Rumparooz is a good choice. BUT if you are like me, who, doesn’t really put pressure on potty-traning at a certain age (my daughter is already 36months), then that means you will be needing a bigger diaper since my child outgrew the Rumparooz pocket diaper at 29 months old.

      I’m just lucky to have a lot of different cloth diaper brands in my stash.

      Regards,

  2. Wow, thanks for the super detailed review! We used cloth prefolds with newborn size Rumparoo covers, and they worked out beautifully! The double gusset and the sizing with the buttons on the outside were really helpful, and a great intro to the world of cloth diapering. I ended up moving on to the Flip diaper covers with prefolds once my little one got older.

    1. Hi Melissa,

      Thanks for sharing and dropping by my site. 🙂 I haven’t tried the Flip cover yet but I heard it’s pretty amazing. Will definitely look into it.:)

      Cheers,

  3. My daughter is currently 6 months pregnant with her first child. When I tried talking to her about what type of diapers she was going to use whether it’s disposable or cloth… and she asked… What’s cloth diapers. She thought they were only used for burp cloths. LOL I have been trying to tell her how much cheaper it is to use cloth and better for the baby… but she’s not having it. I think this is very informative and she can learn something from it. Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Hi Tanya,

      I, too, was very hesitant until I tried them. Cloth diapers have come a long way. Maybe it’s good to let your friends and family give her a few different brands and types of cloth diapers she can choose from. Depending on her lifestyle, I am sure there is one cloth diaper type that she will love and can start building her stash from there. 🙂 Cloth diapers in general, was a major turn off for me, mainly because of washing and stinking. But not when you think of long term cost savings and healthier skin of the baby too!

      Regards,

      Pitin

  4. Can you use the Roomparooz soakers in any cloth diaper? I have Fuzzi Bunz with inserts. But once my boys even have a single potty episode, they’re fully soaked and I can’t put them in cloth diapers overnight. Maybe my boys are just super soakers. But I was hoping to find some inserts that will absorb better without adding more bulkiness and so I don’t have to invest in a new set of diapers.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      My daughter is a super-soaker, too!

      If you are looking for an insert that will absorb better without adding the bulk, you should check the the Bum Genius pocket diapers.

      I believe the Fuzzi Bunz has a similar design as the Charlie Banana. If you are using the sized version (i.e. small, medium, large) the large soakers should go with the large cover. Same thing as the small soaker should fit the small cover. Unless what you have is the One-Size Fuzzibunz, then you should be fine using both the Rumparooz soakers (large/small) without worrying that it would not fit.

      I have tried using the Rumparooz Soakers in my Charlie Banana pocket covers, Best Bottom Covers, Imagine Baby Pockets and Ecoable All-In-One with pockets and they fit nicely.

      The Soakers I have come in two sizes. The large one cannot fit the Bum Genius AIO width-wise but the smaller Rumparooz Soakers does fit nicely. The Bum Genius pocket diapers also can fit both the Large and smaller-sized Rumparooz Soakers. I haven’t tried the soakers in my Thirsties Duo cover – but I am very sure they would fit since the cover is so large.

      Regards,

      Pitin

  5. Oh my gosh they are so cute!!! I feel really strongly about the use of cloth diapers. There is so much waste from plastic diapers. It’s hard to even imagine, but 1 baby probably gets changed anywhere between 5 and 20 times a day. I think it’s awesome that you are doing reviews of these. I hope it helps to reduce waste 🙂 And they are adorable!!!

    1. Hi Natalie,

      Unlimited cuteness is actually one of my major deciding factor 2 years ago when I decided to start to go cloth all the way, haha. It’s a “shallow” reason but hey, it made me realise a lot of things as I used them. The physical look of the diapers are only a plus. The main benefit I am getting now is that my daughter has been rash-free since birth and also I have already saved approximately $2,000 for going cloth for 2 years now. And by the way, I read an article before that disposable diapers take longer to decompose (100 to 300 years) – that is our lifetime x 4!

      Regards,

      Pitin

  6. The disposables are convenient but make the cost of raising a newborn higher. In addition to the cost, where do they stand in relation to disposables? I realise convenience is just that, but always comes at a cost. I wonder if cloth is practical for families who are just getting started. Good article.

    1. Hi Hook,

      Cloth can be an expensive upfront purchase, but if you are using it for more than a year, It is indeed more practical. If you haven’t read my detailed computation as to how we saved $1k a year using Charlie Banana Cloth diapers, you should go and check out my review. One month to go and it’s our second year of cloth diapering which means we already saved $2k on diapers alone by going cloth.

      I feel that aside from the cost, the next advantage of using it is that it is more friendly to the skin. I remember during my early months of using disposables at night, there are times I would accidentally not change them for 4 hours plus. My daughter’s skin look very red. Compared to when I forget to change cloth on time, although the inserts is soaked, my daughter’s skin is still normal in color.

      Regards,

      Pitin
