I was super excited to review this BabeeGreens fitted diaper. Why? Because it is made in Asheville NC! I am a NC girl, born and raised. Even though I didn’t live in Asheville I have been there a few times for vacations or a day trip. I have fond memories of the town. I haven’t been back since adulthood but I imagine it is a lot like Ithaca NY, a crunchy town I like to visit often. It is always nice to see US Made diapers, and even better to find some made to close to “home.”
Ease of Use ✩✩✩ Like many other fitteds, this one utilizes a Fold Over Rise. There are snaps on both sides of the top. You can fold to different levels and still use the inside snaps, which makes for an easy way to size the diaper. With the rose folded there is no way to snap in the Contour Booster seen in the video. You can however use the lay in boosters that come with the diaper. To snap the diaper on it isn’t hard. The snaps lie lower than some diapers so it might appear weird but it is correct, I promise.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩✩ So, at 18.95, made in the US, using organic materials, this is a steal! Also, you not only get a good fitted, you get the newborn contour which can be used at birth. I doubt it will fot for long since it is tiny, but it will fit a teeny baby that most one size’s won’t. And you get the boosters with it! You have enough absorbency to work all night.
Performance ✩✩✩✩ I mostly used this diaper overnight, although I did test for days as well. Since nights are the true test anyway, who cares? Days I only used the contour snapped in. My son is on the unsnapped rise setting, but it is high on him so he has room for growth still. This was plenty of absorbency. For overnight I used the contour and one booster. This was also good for us as long as I made sure the cover was on nicely. I did have a front leak once and I suspect the cover wasn’t tight enough so some wicking occurred at his tummy and got on his pajamas.
Fit ✩✩✩ Getting this diaper to fit correctly might take some practice, especially if you are unfamiliar with this form of rise adjustment. You can play with it, fold it different ways, to get it going. We probably could have folded it over, but since it fit him unfolded I went the easiest way. It isn’t the trimmest fitted, hence why we used it mostly at night. You need to consider this when looking for covers. Most pull on wool and fleece covers are going to be a great pair with this. I used the Smartipants OS most times since it has a lot of room. Some trimmer cut styles (bikini cuts on legs) might not work as well. An example would be the Kissaluvs OS cover.
Overall- This is a workhorse fitted that is going to last forever. The durable materials and quality workmanship definitely show. 18.95 is a small price to pay for what you are getting. If you want to support a great WAHM you should give this diaper a look.
