Look out cloth diaper-ers, there’s a new (natural fiber) diaper in town! I had the opportunity to test Wonderful Bambino’s one-size fitted diaper prototype back in June, and was excited to receive one of the finished products when they hit the market last month. I’ve talked about how great of a fiber hemp is for diapers here and here, and Wonderful Bambino presented my first opportunity to delve into bamboo to see how it performs for a diaper. In a nutshell, bamboo works wonderfully!
My first impression of this diaper was that it was really flimsy & floppy – I doubted it would be able to hold much liquid. This, however, is one of the amazing qualities of the Wonderful Bambino one-size fitted diaper — it’s lightweight (read: SUPER TRIM) and really thirsty.
Made of 100% bamboo, the bamboo’s properties pull in and distribute moisture beautifully. As I’ve said before, D is not a heavy wetter, so these work really well for us with just a cover. Those of you with heavy wetters, or looking to use this diaper for nighttime, would do well to pair this fitted with Wonderful Bambino Bamboo Inserts. The bamboo inserts are made from the same material as the diaper and are comprised of three thirsty layers of bamboo — these inserts are slim.
So, how does the Wonderful Bambino Fitted perform? As a one-size fitted diaper, Wonderful Bambino features plenty of areas to adjust sizing to fit your little one. The rise contains two rows of snaps, easily allowing you to fold the top row down and in to accommodate smaller babies. The body contains two additional rows for sizing, again allowing for adjustment. For those smaller, leaner babies, there is an additional snap on the waist to allow the tabs to overlap to secure (this feature is what got us through the first year of diapering with Declan’s lean waistline):
- Made from 100% Bamboo
- Machine Wash AND Dry
- A VERY trim diaper, compared to other fitteds on the market
- Very absorbent diaper, even without bamboo insert
- Great diaper for chunky babies
- Great diaper for overnight, when paired with bamboo insert
- Leg gussets create snug fit, deterring any leaks
