The Bottombumpers One Size was just released on September 1, but I was fortunate enough to be a tester. I have had this diaper for a few months. There were no changes to the final diaper other than rounding out the tab corners.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩ The adjustment for the Bottombumpers One Size is unique because the snap down rise is inside of the diaper at the back, versus on the front on the outside like many snap down rise diapers. The principle is the same, however, and is easy to snap down. The two layer soaker snaps in at the back as well. You do not need to unsnap it to wash unless you want. I have been leaving it snapped and it stays attached and has caused no damage. There are a total of 4 snaps to affix when putting the diaper on the baby, and they are on the side. There are many choices since it is a one size diaper, but it should be fairly intuitive after a few times using it.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩ I would be more than happy to pay 22.95 for this diaper. With organic cotton, bamboo velour, one size, and being made in the US, that is more than a fair price. Of course you can find cheaper diapers, but often you get what you pay for.
Performance ✩✩✩✩ I used this diaper for day times and naps. You have to be careful when putting the diaper on the baby to tuck in the cotton around the elastic. The elastic is not encased, similar to the BG Organic AIO (Elementals) so when you wash it rolls out and scrunches up. To avoid any leaks keep that in mind. The soaker was adequate for us for both day and nite. I did find when my son slept on his side he occasionally got a leak, not a major leak, it was a small spot of wetness. I imagine this is just because it is a side snapping diaper.
Fit ✩✩✩✩ I used the diaper on the third snap setting, so I have one last snap left for him. There is plenty of room for him waist wise as well. It fits very, very trim on his and looks nice and sleek thanks to the unique rise adjustment. It is definitely a good diaper for under those jeans! When you use smaller snap settings you will have to fold the soaker for it to fit inside the diaper, but at his size this wasn’t needed.
Overall- I love the way this diaper looks and fits. It dries relatively quickly, within one dryer cycle. If you air dried it it will take longer than a pocket with a microfiber insert since it is cotton and bamboo.
