Nicki's Best Bottom Diapering System

Nicki’s Best Bottom Diapering System is a one-size, all-in-two system designed by Nicki’s Diapers.  If you visit the website, for heaven’s sakes, don’t leave the “diapers” off the web address, take that from me!

Best Bottom AI2 DiaperOne Size Diaper System

I received a “mint chocolate chip” (yum) diaper along with medium and large stay-dry inserts.

Leg GussetsOne Size Diaper 4 settings

Two things that stood out to me about the Best Bottom diaper were the leg gussets, and the four size settings.

velcro closure and laundry tabs

The diaper has velcro closures, which I love.  However, I think they would be even better if the laundry tabs were rotated 90 degrees.  They don’t seem to want to stay attached in the wash, so I may try turning the tabs and attaching them at an angle!

Inserts snap in Medium and Large Stay Dry Inserts

The features page has a comparison on features/pros/cons and cost of various diapering systems.  The Best Bottom system actually has a leg up on covers and prefolds as far as cost goes.  I think they have the additional advantage of being super easy (inserts just snap in) and having a stay-dry insert.  I see no reason why you couldn’t use the diaper as a cover over prefolds as well, if you already have some in your stash.

Here is the Extra-Small setting:

The photos below show the Best Bottom diaper on the medium setting with a medium insert.  I was able to use the large inserts in the medium setting as well.  I just had to fold/tuck the excess insert in, and of course, it was a little bit bulkier!  My son is about 18.5 lbs and 30″.

You may be thinking to yourself, “Maria, these photos look like you put the diaper on him while he was standing, then chased him around trying to take photos of him!”  If that’s what you’re thinking, you’re exactly right.  I was able to get this sucker on him while he was on the move, and I still had no leaks at all.

Hemp/organic cotton inserts are also offered, as well as overnight inserts and doublers.  This system is so easy to use and affordable (8 covers and 24 inserts are recommended) I think it would be a great way to get started in cloth or pump up your stash.  They’d also be a fantastic choice for road trips and vacations since they take up less space than pocket diapers, fitteds or AIOs.

Each shell retails for $16.95; stay dry inserts are $3.75 each.  The hemp/organic cotton inserts are $5.75 and the overnight inserts are $6.50.

Giveaway: Nicki’s Best Bottom Diapers is offering one winner a one-size shell and 3 stay dry inserts!

>I love the way you're doing giveaways! It makes it so much easier to enter. I may change the way I do them too. Is this form easy to create? I pretty much stopped entering giveaways unless they were multiple winners, really big prizes,etc, just because of the time it took. This is awesome!

>My friend has one of these shells that she uses with prefolds. A few months ago I invested in some pocket diapers for church nursery, easier changes in the back seat of the car, etc., but I am kicking myself that these weren't available then. If the diaper is already snapped together, it goes on just like an all in one or pocket diaper, so easy for others, but you get the economicalness of a two-part system. Prefolds and covers are my favorite, but a "fancier" AI2 system is pretty awesome, too.

>Amy, I emailed you about the forms but yes, very easy!Hannah, you are exactly right! I think the key is having a couple of covers so you can have them pre-snapped for the next change! Simple!
