Incredibum Bamboo Cloth Diaper Video and Review

incredibum_bcd3

Update: This brand no longer exists.
The Incredibum brand of diapers was a new one to me. That might be because it was only released in October 2011. The Incredibum is what I consider a “snap-in-one” meaning it is a one time use diaper but instead of it being an All-in-One with layers attached, the layers snap in and are customizable. The soaker pads are made from bamboo with cotton and a small bit of polyester. You can find my review below and watch my video demonstration above.
Ease of Use ✩✩ The Incredibum is not the most complicated diaper I have ever used but it does have a number of size adjustments on the rise, ways to adjust the soaker, and many snaps per tab that give it a pretty high learning curve. There are 4 snaps per tab, but you don’t have to snap them all. In some cases you might not have to do the hip snap so you are down to 2-3. I also had to get used to the position of the snaps on the tab. They aren’t in a place I am used to and would often forget one and have to go back. That only takes an extra few seconds, but it can be kinda annoying when you have an impatient baby. The soakers confused me at first too, and I will admit to still not understanding all of the options. The bamboo soaker snaps into the diaper with 2 snaps on the front and you can snap the other side into the back. You also have an optional snap in booster that snaps in the front. OR you can put this booster in alone when the diaper is set to the smallest setting.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩ The diaper retails for 16.85 and can be found at a few retailers. I like that the material is mostly natural fibers (67% bamboo, 23% cotton, and 11% polyester. It is One Size fits most but I have not tried it with a smaller baby so I can’t say if it fits well on an infant or not. It does fit both my 15 month old and my 3 year old on the middle rise snap. It is slightly less than most One Size pocket diapers.
Performance ✩✩✩✩✩ I tested this diaper in every scenario and it passed. Days were no problem, nights with the booster and main insert were also successful (even with my 3 year old, who has accidents at night), and naps weren’t an issue with just the main insert. This was a good alternative for a fitted and cover at night for us because it is a natural fiber, which in my world, is better. I like natural fibers versus synthetic stay dry fabrics because I feel they give less chances of leaking.
Fit ✩✩✩✩ The diaper fit Everett fine and performed well. I was happy with the absorbency but it just looked a tad bit funny on. I wouldn’t say this is the prettiest diaper ever since there is some gaping in the rise due to only having a rise snap on each side. The diaper fit around his legs and waist well.
Overall: The snaps on the rise and tabs are all white- I prefer the snaps to match or coordinate in a fun way somehow. White snaps aren’t a deal breaker for me but might be for someone. This style of diaper is a favorite for many people. I’m still a pocket girl at heart but it certainly worked well, was absorbent enough, and has a lot of options to it, and is pretty affordable.
