Bottombumpers Onesize Side Snapping All In One Diaper Review
How easy is it to use?
The Bottombumpers Onesize Side Snapping All In One Diaper has a completely new and revolutionary way to change the size of your diaper.  There are four rows of snaps inside the diaper at the rear that adjust the size of your diaper, and it is super easy to figure out, as Bottombumpers has colour coded it for us!!  This diaper also has a two layer soaker that snaps in at the rear (above the adjustment snaps), and because the soaker is not permanently attached to the diaper, means a super quick drying time! (The soaker does not need to be detached, but if you wanted to line dry the cover and dry the soaker in the dryer, that is possible!)
The cover is made with the same durable waterproof soft outer, as their other popular diapers, and is lined with soft organic cotton, which means you do not have to purchase a separate cover or liner for this diaper!  And no stuffing is required!!!
Because this diaper is a Side Snapping Diaper, I found it rather difficult to get the hang of getting it on and fitting right on my baby.  After a little practise, it is not too hard, but I think anyone with a super wriggly baby might have issues to start with!  (This is just my personal opinion.  A lot of people swear by side snapping diapers because they generally give a really good fit to a large number of babies!)
How well does it fit?
The fantastic thing about this diaper, is that it is very trim fitting, and looks much more like a sized diaper than a onesize diaper!!! It also come is 10 great colours (5 bright and 5 pastel), and the ruffle at the back makes it look super cute on your baby!
The sizing should fit babies from 8-25+lbs, however I found that even on the smallest setting all around on my 15lb little girl, that I still did not have a good fit around her legs!
I would think that this diaper would last us, well through to potty training though!
How well does it work?
Even though we did not have a great fit around the legs with my little girl, after extensive daytime testing, I still did not have any leaks to speak of!  I attribute this to the fact that Bottombumpers Soakers are super absorbent!  Each 2 layer soaker is made with 4 layers of Organic Cotton, topped with soft Bamboo Velour.
The only other thing I will mention, is that the elastic around the legs is sewn in such a fashion, that the Organic Cotton liner can poke out.  To ensure there is no wicking, just make sure this is tucked in each time!
How long will it last?
I have been testing this diaper extensively for over a month now (washing almost every day!), and it still looks brand new!! I am not kidding, I could put this diaper in plastic, and put it on the shelf in a store, and no-one would be able to tell the difference!!!  Another good thing about this diaper is that unlike my Bum Genius Elementals, the Organic Cotton still feels super soft.  This diaper will easily last me throughout diapering a couple of children!!!
Is it good value for money?
At C$23.95, this diaper is FANTASTIC value for money!!  Think about this for a moment....  This is a One Size Diaper, so will fit your baby in the first month, right through to potty training and beyond.  It is durable so is able to be used on more than one baby.  It has side snaps which ensures a good fit on a wide range of baby body types.  It has a durable waterproof soft outer, so no separate cover is needed.  It is lined with certified Organic Cotton which also covers the back of the snaps, so no red marks on baby!  The Soaker can be detached from the diaper if you like and is made from 4 layers of Organic Cotton, and topped with silky Bamboo Velour, and to top it off, the diapers are made in the USA.  How can you get better than that?
I like my Bottombumpers Onesize Side Snapping All In One Diaper, and think everyone should have at least one of two in their stash!  This diaper is super low maintenance and a great addition to every cloth diaper stash!  There are not a lot of Onesize All In One Diapers out there, but this one is one of my favourites!
I was provided this diaper Free of Charge by for the purpose of this review, but was not compensated in any way.  All opinions are my own!
