Five Great Cloth Diapers {and a giveaway!}


Cloth diapering is a great choice.  But choosing cloth diapers is overwhelming, isn't it?  There are so many options out there. When my husband and I recently decided to make the switch to cloth we contacted some of the cloth diaper companies we've heard great things about and asked for a chance to review their products on our twin baby girls.  Today I am sharing my thoughts on five popular cloth diaper brands.

1.Apple Cheeks Envelope Cover with Bamboo Insert

The Pros:
  • I love the trim fit.  These diapers don't make my babies waddle like cowboys at all!
  • The colours are super cute. 
  • The large prefold-style bamboo insert is a great combination of absorbency and quick drying
The Cons:
  • The waterproof layer isn't quite waterproof enough for my heavy night-time wetters.  I need to use a different diaper or add a diaper cover at night time.
Conclusion: These are  fabulous day-time diapers.  Plus, they are made in Canada, which is a big plus for this Canadian mama. 

2. Bummis Easy Fit Diaper


The Pros:
  • The easy fold-out liner means that the diapers dry very quickly but also that there is no matching to be done when the diaper comes off the laundry line.  I like that.
  • It comes in some really cute fairy-tale inspired prints.  I want one of each! 
  • The minky liner is so soft that my husband commented that I should start making him underwear out of this stuff.   I'm pretty sure he was kidding...
The Cons:  
  • I wish I hadn't made the rookie mistake of choosing the hook and loop.  Next time I would pick the snap-up version; they are more difficult for wanna-be-naked babies to undo and they  are easier for laundering. 
The Conclusion:  Just a great diaper.  I don't know what else to say...I like it a lot!

3. Thirsties Duo All-In-One


The Pros:
  • Super absorbent
  • Easy.  No stuffing required, the diaper comes off the line ready to use.
The Cons:
  • This diaper took the longest to dry of all the diapers we tried. 
Conclusion:  This is a handy diaper to leave with care givers or to have in the diaper bag; it goes on just like a disposable and isn't intimidating for people unfamiliar with cloth diapers.

4. Fuzzi Bunz One-Size Elite


 The Pros:
  • Was definitely the fastest drying of all of the diapers we tried.
  • Adjustable elastic in the gussets and at the back to make for a snugger fit.
  • It comes with 2 minky inserts
  • My apparently nudist babies haven't figured out how to get out of this one yet.  It fits too snug for them to squirm out of and they can't undo the snaps.
The Cons:
  • Not always absorbent enough for night-time use, even with the extra insert.
Conclusion:  I like this diaper a lot.  The fact that my crafty clever babies can't figure out how to take it off is a big deciding factor for me.


5. Charlie Banana One Size Diaper


The Pros: 
  • It comes with two very absorbent inserts.
  • This is the only diaper we've tried  that can consistently hold up to a full night-times worth of pee (with the second insert in it ).  
  • Considering how absorbent it is, it dries relatively quickly.
  • I just kinda love the name of the company.  Does that make me shallow?
The Cons:
  • Even with just the one insert, it is a very bulky diaper. Which can be difficult when trying to dress baby in super cute snug fitting jeans.
The Conclusion:   I love this diaper for night time!!!  I strategically diaper all day so that I can always use this one at night.

  6. I cloth diaper, but don't have quite enough of a stash to make it "convenient". I've never tried either of the diapers listed, as they've been out of my price range. I'd LOVE to try them, because I've heard great things about both diapers. I share my cloth-diapering success with friends and would love to be able to give them personal experience about these two diapers! Thanks!

  7. cloth diapers have certainly changed since I tried using them for my kids!

  8. I use some thirsties covers with prefolds and love them...I have not ever tried Charlie Banana, but they have the cutest little prints and seem pretty simple. That thirsties duo is adorable, and I agree with you, would be great to leave with a caregiver or take when we go to the church nursery!
    I sure hope I win!!

  12. I have a niece that is having a baby soon and am hoping to get her a stash for her as a baby shower gift. These would be great for her to try herself. I also want to know what to get when I have a grandbaby one day myself. My daughter and I have already talked about her wanting to use cloth, so this would be great for one to try out so I can know what to use for the other. Thank you for the tip on hoop and loops, was debating on that one myself. Also, thank you for the opportunity. goochville at live dot com (use the symbols for at and dot of course ;)

  13. Into cloth diapering with my second, I changed my stash to the Kawaii brand diapers, canadian company but the diapers are made in china, they are the least expensive of all the ones I have tried, and have AMAZING cute designs. And now because I have so many its really convenient, just don't leave the diapers in the pail for 4 days.... yuck

  34. We love our cloth diapers! We tried to start when we got home, but found that the covers we had rubbed her umbilical stump so we waited until it fell off and haven't looked back since (that was six months ago)! To start off we used Diaper Rite small flats with bummis super brite covers and Thirsties duo wraps. We also had 24 Diaper Rite prefolds, but just never really fell in love with them. I love flats for itty bitties that don't wiggle too much. Around three months ago we invested in a stash of 26 (two to test then we invested in 24...half snaps half velcro) BumGenius 4.0 pockets. I didn't like the microfiber inserts for diapering so they became my counter/mess rags when we switched our kitchen over to all cloth. The newborn prefolds came back out and they were PERFECTLY on the smallest rise setting of the 4.0s. Since my daughter is our first we will continue to invest in prefolds to stuff them with for the middle and largest rise settings. All of the diapers will be passed down to future children. Our daughter is 6 months old (tomorrow) and we wash every other day with our stash of 26. I still have 6 flats and two covers out in case I don't get laundry done on time, but have only had to use those once. The rest are packed away for the next kiddo. :) A lot of moms get into cloth diapering and have to try the next best thing all the time, but I love that I've found what works for us and will be done once we have the other two prefold sizes. :)

  35. Thanks for the info this will be really helpful! I have seriously been considering switching my 14 month old and any future babes to cloth diapers. We go through so many disposables I feel so guilty every time we fill up a garbage bag with them. Here's my email haileymacd@gmail.com

  36. We have been using Fuzzi Bunz for all of our four kids, and love them! We have recommended them to many of our friends and family. I used the perfect sized diapers, smalls and mediums, for the first three kids. I needed to replace a few for the fourth and decided to try the one size, which are nice and have adjusted much better than I expected. I do use two inserts for naps and bedtime. Our youngest, and first boy, is the first to be able to undo the snaps and take his diaper off. Hopefully yours won't figure that out! hopes@columbus.rr.com

  42. I am cloth diapering my second child currently and I use Kawaii diapers and LOVE them. They are also made in Canada :) and are pocket diapers and I find they leak less than disposables. My only complaint is that they don't hold up very well for night time diapering, they do leak if I try to use them for a 12+ hour period of time. They were also SUPER cheap for cloth! :)

  47. We started with cloth when we were given 3 months of a diaper service for a baby gift. After the 3 months expired, we got lazy and went to disposable. Last night we spent about $100 on disposable and realized we really need to switch back, to both save major $ and for environmental reasons. Thanks for your helpful reviews! I love both of your blogs!

  49. I am 25 weeks pregnant with my first baby! Considering cloth diapering, but don't really know all the ins and outs of how it works... I mean, what do you do with a poopy diaper?!? Wash it with a water hose in your yard? I live in the country, so if that's the case, no big deal for me. :)

    1. Melody,
      I love how gung-ho you are about cloth diapers:) There are actually sprayers that you can attach to your toilet to spray the poo into the tiolet instead. I'm sure you could just use a hose too, though. It would work about the same, I'm sure!

      I blog about cloth diapering over at my website, and I'm actually working through a series about the basics of cloth diapers. If you're at all interested, it's over at www.thelittlemother.com.

      Good luck with your pregnancy!

  82. I just got three of the new Bummies Tots Bots ones and am in LOVE.
    You would also really like the new BabyKicks Premiums. Side snaps are the most streaker proof and the hemp insert is so very very absorbent.
    The Thristies AIOs can cause trouble when unstapped in boys because of where the absorbent part falls. The velcro will also unstick so be prepared to convert to snaps at some point.
    I like Thristies and CB on FB.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Never tried either and would love to try them out! I have tried Bum Genius, and satisfied. I have a boy who loves to undo the velcro, now that he is 8 months,though! Should have done the snaps, the few I have like that are the ones that stay on!

  84. We love cloth diapers! Some of our Mother-Ease are wearing out and we could use more diapers. My two year old just wears diapers at night, but he pees a lot. I would love to find diapers that hold up at night. Our six week old goes through so many diapers. My favourite for him are the size small from Rearz that I bought on well.ca They have snap down fronts for the umbilical cord. We pair these with econobum, Blueberry Coverall or Rumparooz covers.

    A as side note when your newest princess arrives if you want to keep your diapers in good shape you will want about a weeks worth of disposables for that meconium. Hard stuff to get out!

At night & for part-time daycare we use BumGenius pocket or FuzziBunz pockets. Would love to try either. Never used Charlie Banana & Thirsties I've just used their covers & really like them!

  113. I used old fashioned cloth diapers on my first child and her sensitive skin couldn't handle it. I just found out we will be diapering again and I would love to try these. Perhaps this kid won't have such a sensitive tush!! kdestiny427@yahoo.com

  118. Wow your babies bottoms are soooo cute! Please could you tell us how you wash them and how many to buy for one baby ? I'm expecting number 3 in April 2013 - tried it with number 2 but didn't quite manage it!!
    Cool article!!

    1. I know you're not asking me, but we wash ours with like a tablespoon of regular detergent on a cold cycle (our washer doesn't have the right temperature cycle that the instructions say). The instructions also say to use a special detergent, but we haven't had a problem with Sunlight. I hang them in the sun as much as possible to bleach them.

      I have 15 diapers and do a load every day or two. Our baby is three months.

  123. Ahahaha! I too am plagued with nudist baby. I actually used disposables for most of her babyhood, now that she is nearing two, I am using cloth diapers to potty train her. Much more willing to pee on the pot if the alternative is a soggy diaper :D

  125. Not sure if this is open internationally or not, but if it is, I would love to enter! Especially for the Charlie Banana one - as you say, awesome name, and something that can last all night would be wonderful. We use Bambooty nappies, which we absolutely love - they sound pretty similar to the FuzziBunz ones, except they're bamboo fabric - but their nighttime one is not quite enough some nights!

  127. I tried cloth diapering with my son and then with my daughter for a short time. We always had issues at night with my son. He always leaked through so we ended up switching back to disposable. We used gdiapers which I loved since they also had a disposable option when we went out that could just flush away instead of going in the garbage.

  132. Love your reviews of the cloth diapers. With our first, we used prefolds, which we loved, but babysitters and Grandparents not as much. With the second I am hoping to add a few of these "easier" cloth diapers to my collection so that my husband and I might be able to go out at least once. :-)

  135. I used cloth diapers with my last child. I love them! I plan on doing it again with baby number 4 and wish I would've done it with the others. I've even convinced some of my friends to go cloth.
    I have tried several of the brands you mentioned but not the two you are giving away. I hope I win! :)
    I did like them on FB as well. Do you know if they are sold in stores or only online?

  137. This post is so timely for us! We just switched to cloth diapers full time yesterday when the 12 FuzziBunz Elite we ordered came in the mail. I love them as a trim daytime diaper, and use KaWaii's at night. Your reviews made me interested to try the Charlie Banana's though.

  138. Yay, for clothing diapering! We use Bum Genius cloth diapers and have been so pleased. The same diapers used on our 3 year old, are now being used on our 1.5 year old. They are still in awesome shape! Not only are cloth diapers good for the environment (no waste), are filled with of chemicals, they're so convenient (no midnight runs to the store if one runs out), they take up less space in your home. We have so tried and promote them to friends and family - no one seems to 'get it'. Many negative reactions. People, what kind of environment are leaving for your kids??? I hope more people catch on. It's great to see so many comments! Thanks a lot for writing this article.

  141. Our two year old has been in Gdiapers since he was about three months old. We love Gdiapers but they work best as a daytime diaper. So I loved your reviews and really would like to try the Charlie Banana's! I can't resist an awesome giveaway :)

  142. I have been pretty interested in cloth diapering ever since I got linked in a gift exchange with a woman doing cloth diapering. I have a 5 week old little girl and I am thinking that I may try to build up a stash of diapers for the next one.

  143. I am a mom of 4 little ones and have debated about and trialed some cloth diapering over time, but never made the full switch. With only one currently in diapers I am seriously considering it again and would love to try out a new kind of diaper! Thanks for the reviews! the_foges@yahoo.com

  144. I just started cloth diapering our newborn in July and I love it! I wish I had started with our daughter. We where blessed with about a days worth of BG 4.0s and they are fantastic. We also have Thirtsties covers and flats. I really like the covers. He's growing so fast we are about to have to move up to size 2. I am thinking we might spring for a few AIOs. I really hope cloth diapering is as much as a blessing for your family as for ours. It does save money and I really think it helps teach my daughter as she helps mommy hang up laundry to embrace the concept that a little extra work can be a joy if its for the good of our family.
