I first heard of Mom’s Milk Boutique shortly after starting my cloth diapering journey. Of course, they have lots of cloth diapers, but they also sell tons of accessories (wipes, solutions, creams, detergents, dryer balls etc.), carriers, wraps, nursing accessories, skin care, Haba toys and so much more! U.S. orders over $25 get free shipping every day and they use eco-friendly EcoEnclose polymailers. They have a gift registry, affiliate program and a brick & mortar store for those of you in Southern Illinois. (Please note that while I have an affiliate link to Mom’s Milk Boutique on my affiliates page, links within this post are not of the affiliate variety!)
Mom’s Milk Boutique sent me a Bottombumpers one-size all-in-one cloth diaper to try. I received the buttercup color, but they also have colors like black, cherry, pumpkin, espresso, and a gorgeous cobalt blue (among others!) The one-size diapers retail for $22.95 and the limited edition prints are $2.00 more.
The package included a Bottombumpers business card, which had handy washing instructions right there.
They have gentle, but effective leg elastic, and a soft inner lining.
The Bottombumpers is a really trim one-size diaper, thanks in part to the side snap closures (which also makes them nice to use in the early stages of potty training.)
What makes them far trimmer than other one-size diapers (in my opinion) is the unique size adjustment, which is inside the rear of the diaper, under the soaker. To picture what you’re looking at, the elastic you see at the top of the photo is the rear elastic of the diaper.
The soaker has two parts (better cleaning & quicker drying) that are 2 layers of organic cotton each, and it’s topped with 2 layers of super-soft bamboo velour (6 layers of absorbency total.) The soaker snaps to the white snaps in the rear of the diaper, so it covers any unused size adjustment snaps.
On a side note, I consider this an all-in-two (AI2) since it has a snap in soaker (Bottombumpers recommends removing the soaker for laundering.) However, some people consider a diaper an AI2 only if the shell is reusable. You will see this style marketed & sold as both an AIO and an AI2, it depends on the company. I don’t think it matters what they call it, as long as you know what you’re getting. I was mighty confused the first time I received an “all-in-one” that looked like this. As a cloth diaper newbie, I had only seen AIOs with sewn in soakers and AI2s (or fitteds) with snap in soakers!
There are 4 size adjustments. The top (white) snap is what the soaker snaps to. The green snap is the male snap used to adjust the size. The blue snap is newborn/small which fits about 8-15 pounds. The orange snap is small-medium or 12-20 pounds, yellow is medium/large or 16-28 pounds (the size my 23 pound 2 year-old is using) and unsnapped is large/x-large for 25+ pounds.
I’ve measured each setting folded and stretched, but as always, it’s not an exact science!
I did notice that the difference between sizes is a little more subtle than some other diapers. Here are the sizing snaps on the Bottombumpers compared to another brand with 4 rise snaps, so you can see that they are a bit closer together:
I put my 23 pound, 2 year old son in the medium/large setting. This seemed to be a great fit for him. He still wears a lot of mediums, but I’ve had to move him up to some larges, just in the past few weeks.
He has lots of room to grow, and I think he could probably fit in the small/medium setting as well!
To make a long story short, this diaper was on my son the other day, while Daddy was on diaper duty (I took a blissful solo trip to the grocery store!) I typically change him every 2-2 1/2 hours (or sooner) but this ended up on him far longer than that! It is very absorbent and we didn’t experience any leaks!
Mom’s Milk Boutique also has Bottombumpers Sized Side snapping AIOs and Bottombumpers Sized Hook & Loop Closure AIOs
