Best Bottoms All in Two Review

Best Bottoms AI2
Best Bottoms AI2
One of the most requested reviews lately has been the new Best Bottoms All in Two.  This diaper was created by Nicki, founder of Nicki’s Diapers.  She has seen a lot of diapers and knows what customers want, so she made her own.  This All in Two answers many concerns.  The cover is very generously sized and fits babies from birth to 35 pounds.  Rather than having a one size fits all insert, which adds bulk to smaller babies, they made affordable sized inserts.  Small inserts fit babies from birth to 14 pounds, Medium inserts fit babies 11-22 pounds, and large inserts fit babies 16-35+ pounds.  They also have inserts of different materials and abosorbency to suit every family’s needs.  I really love this diaper and I think you will too!
P6210006Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰ This is a super simple All in Two.  The rise adjustment is very straight forward, and you only have to do that once in a blue moon.  To snap in a new insert there are 2 snaps, one at the front and one at the back of the diaper.  It doesn’t get much easier.  To put on your baby there are a total of 4 snaps, 2 on each tab.  This is very easy, though not as easy as velcro.  If the baby has soiled the cover you toss it in the pail and grab a new one.  If not, you reach for a fresh snap in insert and remove the wet one.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰✰ 405 dollars can diaper your baby from birth to potty training!  This is a great deal, especially when you consider these covers are adorable!  I am in love with the colors and  the contrasting binding.  I chose to review the Sherbert one since it was Orange and Blue, Syracuse colors.  The covers run 16.95 alone, and the stay dry insert seen in the video is only 3.75.  You can spend more and upgrade to a hemp/ organic cotton insert for 5.75 or an overnight insert for 6.00.
Performance ✰✰✰✰ I only reviewed the cover and stay dry inserts, not the overnight or hemp/ organic cotton.  For day use this insert was adequate.  I was able to test this diaper out while traveling and noticed that my son did wet through the insert on 2 occasions.  He happened to drink more fluids while we were in Texas, plus on one occasion he was on the plane and I waited too long t o change him.  I would not suggest the stay dry inserts for overnights, but you can buy overnight inserts.  I just didn’t review these so I can only assume these will hold enough.  The covers did very good at holding in messy poo, something else we were lucky enough to experience while traveling.
Fit ✰✰✰✰ I am convinced these will fit an average baby at birth.  Just looking at how small the cover gets, and the fact that it would use a smaller insert, makes me think so.  I will try them on my own newborn in the fall, but I will need to buy some small inserts to do so.  As for the fit on my toddler, it was very good on the third largest setting.  I shoce to get the Large insert based on the size chart, but his rise was more towards the middle.  The large insert stuck out just a tad so I scrunched it in.  It will be great on the unsnapped setting.  No noticeable red marks from the cover, though I think a time or  two I have seen snap imprints from the tabs, but not deep.
Overall- I am not a huge All in Two fan but these have been working great.  I used them for traveling and for the diaper bag and it has saved space both ways.  I think the creator really thought about what customers want and addressed those issues with this diaper.  The ony thing I noticed is that it was hard for me to change him wearing these in odd places, like a car back seat.  He was sweaty and I was trying to get the insert centered and the PUL would not move against his skin.  It took a long time to get it on him and caused me some frustration.  Other than that it has been a pleasure to review and use.
I received a Best Bottoms cover and 3 inserts free of charge for the purposes of this review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced by the company.

    It seems like these are based on the SoftBums design. How does this system compare to the SoftBums diaper system?

  • @MJ I owuldn’t compare them to Softbums. The Softbums uses a drawstring elastic adjustment and the inserts are one size and fold over. Also, the Softbums are lined with Microfleece but the Best Bottoms have a laminate PUL inner. Their inserts are sized. Similar concept, but similar to Gro Via and other All in Twos as well.

    I do like both diapers, but I love that BB have sized inserts so it helps with bulk.

    With the BB, do you have to wash the inserts multiple times before they have reached maximum absorbency? I know some diapers say you should wash them up to 6 times before you should use them.

    Thanks,

    Love your videos 🙂  Did you have a chance to use these on your younger son? I’ve read mixed reviews on the fit of these, and just wondering how they fit over the range of newborn-toddler for you. And did you try any of the hemp inserts, or doublers, or overnights? I love the concept, and really want to try these out. Hoping they fit my daughter. Thanks!

      I did use the cover with other inserts on him as a newborn. They fit well on him when he was super small. I didn’t have any smaller BB brand insters to try with him though.
