This post is part of my Intro to Cloth Diapers Series! Each week I will be adding a new video detailing an aspect of cloth diapers that a “newbie” would have questions about. This week the video is dedicated to Elastic One Size Diapers.
There are 3 major types that you will see:
- Button Hole (ex. Fuzzibunz OS, Charlie Banana OS, Lollidoo OS, and Sprout Change)
- Snap (ex. Rocky Mountain OS)
- Sliding (or “drawstring” ex. Softbums, Green Line, TK Cuddlers, Evolution Diapers)
Pros of Elastic Sizing:
- More size possibilities than Snap Down Rise sizing
- Cleaner looking due to lack of unsnapped settings
- Good for babies with skinny thighs
- More sizing possibilities also mean a higher learning curve and more chances for mistakes/leaks.
- Harder to adjust size.
- More potential for leg leaks due to bunching.
- Can be easy to over tighten and cause red marks.
- Not ideal if you have 2 children. More time consuming to switch between sizes if needed.
