Rock-a-bums 5-In-One One Size Review


Update: There is a 2.0 version of this diaper.

My little one is crazy about her daddy. She has taken to singing “Dad da daddy da da da daddy” all day long. I’ve begun working from home in the evenings after he gets home from work, so he has an hour or so all to himself with her until she goes to bed now. The one-on-one time seems to have strengthened their relationship so much already, and is helping with the separation anxiety that can occur at this age when away from mom. I love to see him strap on his own khaki Ergo and take Harper for walks in the neighborhood, and when I clock out we have a late dinner together and he tells me about their night. It’s hard being away from her for even a short time but I love that they are becoming that much closer.

Today I’m reviewing a five in one diaper from Rock-a-bums. They come in cool color combos and look very sleek and hip.


Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩✩

The Rock-a-bums is very easy to use and has lots of options. I love that the microfiber insert is lined on one side with bamboo charcoal so you can lay the insert against baby’s skin without letting the microfiber touch them. This is a great feature if you’re out and about and want to pack light; you can just stuff some of these lined inserts in your bag and use the diaper as an all in two. I also like using it as an all-in-one because the inside is a cool shade of grey which is great for hiding discoloration, I haven’t had to sun these yet.

Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩ At 16.95 these diapers are a pretty good deal. They are well made and look like they will last a long time. Each diaper comes with two inserts which you can use independently or double stuff for night time. You can also use the diaper with your own accessories if you prefer, the site points out it can be used with disposable inserts or over disposable diapers as a blow-out-proof cover to prevent leaks. I didn’t use any disposable inserts, and I am curious whether the sticky underside (editor’s note: most hybrid inserts don’t have sticky backings) would damage the soft fleecy lining. But I can definitely imagine my ‘sposie using friends rocking this cover to deal with containing messes and also for pictures, I don’t think anyone can deny the visual appeal on these cool modern diapers with an urban aesthetic. Performance ✩✩✩✩

The versatility of these diapers really impressed me. I was concerned that the soft interior would make the diaper less useful as an all in two since it doesn’t appear as wipeable as a slick shell. When it got messy, however, I was able to use a damp paper towel to clean the shell quite easily. I also like stuffing this diaper as an all-in-one, especially for babysitters and grandparents who need a no-fuss option. The opening for the pocket is very generous and easy to stuff.


I tested the snap version of this diaper, they also have a Velcro version that will be available soon. They have a three step rise and cross over tabs, and I was able to get an excellent fit on my nine month old. I also like how thin the diaper material is, it feels soft and looks trim.


You’re buying these diapers because they look cool. They come in rock star color combinations that are graphic and bold. I love the style and the graphic on the tag. I hear they are planning on doing prints soon, and can’t wait to see them. All that said, these diapers are more than just nice to look at. They work really well in a variety of ways. I like them a lot and am excited to see what they come out with next.

    any idea how small of a baby this would fit? I am looking for some good diapers to fit a newborn and I tend to have small babies (5-6lbs) and Have a hard time finding cloth that fit! these look amazing, so I am wondering, do you think they would fit that size?

    • kimrosas

      I doubt these would fit a baby that small…. most 3 step rise OS diapers won’t. Rocky Mountain One Size, Softbums, and Fuzzibunz were the one size that fit my newborn best.

    Thanks for the review. I don’t think I’d have stumbled onto these on my own. They’re exactly what I’m looking for in a cloth diaper.

    Is it just me? I can’t get my RABs to not leak. They contain the poop very well, I’ve never had a blowout. (But to be fair I haven’t had a blowout on my $7 diapers from Nikki’s either). In the early days I figured the leaks were from a not so tight fit around the legs. But the legs fit my little guy well now and no matter how much I stuff or how often I change, the outside of these diapers are always wet. I don’t trust them enough to use them out of the house. I tried drying them ( per RABs suggestion). Got rid of the onesies , still leaks. What a bummer I have 9 of their 1.0’s they make up the majority of my stash and I am so disappointed.
