Bagshot Row Bamboo
were the first bamboo snappiable/pinnable fitted diapers on the market. They’re very popular, quickly selling out after each store stocking.
Like most other cloth diapers, Bagshot Row Bamboo (BSRB) diapers were created when Joyce wasn’t able to get quite the right fit with the snapping bamboo diapers she was using. Her two-part soaker was also unique at the time, though many imitations have followed. She made them extra long to allow for folding to gain more absorbency, and they were sewn in two parts for faster drying.
For those of us that prefer a waterproof diaper, Joyce created the Bagshot Row Bamboo Hybrid All In One.
The BSRB Hybrid AIO has two full layers of non-pill fleece, and a decorative layer of cotton knit in the outer shell of the diaper. Note that there is no PUL, so it’s a great alternative for Mamas who want a waterproof diaper, but have babies with PUL sensitivities.
There is no absorbent material sewn into the shell. The diaper comes with a two part soaker made with bamboo/organic cotton fleece which snaps into the shell. This is what I
would call an all in two.
However, as I’ve discussed before, some people feel that only hybrid systems like the flip
, where the shell can be wiped and reused for multiple changes, are all in twos. Anything that can only be used once before laundering (in the opinion of some) is an all in one, despite being made up of two pieces.
I had no issues with wicking on this diaper, and I think that’s because the decorative cotton outer is sewn toward the back of the diaper, and not in the wet zone, where the legs would be prone to wicking.
The soaker is purposely made extra-long, to allow for double, or even triple folding. If you double both soakers over, you will have 12 layers of absorbency.
This diaper is closure-less, meaning it does not have snaps, Velcro or another closure method built in. You have to use pins or a snappi
to secure it. The benefit is that you’re not constrained by rise or snap settings; the fit is infinitely adjustable. I only have one other closure-less diaper
, so I’m really not the best at using snappis. I am sure if you use them more regularly, they will be easier to use. I’m getting better at it already.
Even so, I still prefer snaps, and Joyce offers snaps as an option. However, they are done by another WAHM, so you would need to contact her for a quote, pay, and wait for Joyce to send your diapers to her for the addition of snaps.
Not too bad for my first attempt! My subsequent attempts were better, I swear!
Even though these diapers are waterproof, you should not let your baby wear them alone (no clothes) and also follow Snappi Baby’s safety instructions to NOT use a Snappi fastener on toddlers who have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes. Snappi fasteners do have somewhat sharp grippers, and the plastic tabs could potentially be chewed/choked on.
The first time I used my BSRB AIO, the soakers were hardly wet when I changed it. The second time, he pooped in it immediately (soakers didn’t stain at all by the way.) So, the third time, I purposely left it on him longer than usual, so I could really test the absorbency. I was quite surprised when I realized I could have left it on him even longer still! There was no leaking, no wicking, and the soakers had tons of absorbency left. They weren’t even fully saturated.
If you want your own Bagshot Row Bamboo Hybrid AIO, you’ll have to stalk her Hyenacart store
. She stocks each Friday at 4 and 6 P.M. central time. Her diapers sell for $20-$25 depending on style.
Or, you can win one! Joyce will make one lucky blog reader a BSRB diaper in their choice of style and print!
