I know I have been meaning to post this review for a long time. I bought the diaper myself to review it since I knew so many people were wanting a video review!
Ease of Use ✰✰✰ Goodmamas and snaps are synonymous. Each tab has 3 snaps that need to be secured, so while putting the diaper on you need to secure 6 snaps total. This can be no big deal, or torture depending on your baby/ toddler’s temperament. To size the diaper, you can just fold the rise over, which reveals more snaps. When left unfolded, those snaps will be against the baby’s skin.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰ The ONE is close to 30.00. You are paying mostly for the cuteness factor and the rayon from bamboo which makes up the interior of the diaper. You really only buy this diaper because you love the way it looks.
Performance ✰✰✰ I experienced a good number of leaks in the beginning. The wetness wicked onto the decorative material on the front of the diaper around the legs. I contacted Goodmama and they offered to help me troubleshoot. I tried working with how I was sizing it and between that and perhaps some extra washes (prepping) it didn’t leak through the legs.
Fit ✰✰✰ The diaper isn’t the trimmest. Even the fitteds are a little bulky since they use quite a few layers of rayon from bamboo. Trimness doesn’t mean the most to me. The rise can be adjusted but I don’t feel this would fit a baby until they get some length and chunk on them. The legs weren’t as snug as I would like to hold in leaks, but I never had any solid waste leak out.
Overall- I do enjoy how cute the diaper is, and always appreciate softness next to the baby. I don’t like that the snaps are not hidden, so when unfolded, they are against the baby’s skin. The only way to avoid that is to buy socks that go over those snaps. It is absorbent enough, but I always worry about him leaking while wearing it so I don’t leave it on for long or use it while we are out. If you like the look of GM’s I would much rather get the fitteds. At home you can use them coverless. There are tons of people who do love the ONE’s, but I am not in love.
