All In One Diapers Cloth Diapers Giveaway Newborn Diapers Review Sized Diapers Velcro/Aplix Closure Virtual Baby Shower Event

Bumgenius XS / Newborn AIO Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 10/14) US/CAN

BumGenius XS Newborn AIO 1

My newborn cloth diaper stash just wouldn’t be complete without a Bumgenius newborn diaper!

Bumgenius 4.0s are designed to fit babies from 7-35 pounds, though I have heard some people say they don’t fit well until 8-10 lbs (depending on baby’s shape.) I will find out soon enough, since we started cloth diapering my son when he was over 14 lbs and needed the medium setting of Bumgenius 3.0s. (He is about 26 lbs, 28 months old and still in mediums!) Anyhoo, the XS/Newborn AIO is designed to bridge the gap there, and fit babies from 6-12 lbs. At just $12.95 each, I think they are very reasonably priced.

They have velcro closures, which I still think are the easiest! I know many people prefer snaps because of their longevity vs. velcro, but I figure most people won’t use newborn diapers long enough to notice. I definitely think velcro will make it easy for middle of the night changes, and trying to change diapers as quickly as possible. That’s assuming your babies scream bloody murder when they are put down, let alone diapered, like mine did. 😉 Since they are so small, they have just one laundry tab in the middle, and the other closure tab goes on the overlap of the first one.

They look just like the one size diapers as far as the leg elastic and the stay dry inner. However, the soaker is sewn in. The now discontinued Bumgenius sized AIOs in small, medium and large had an additional pocket to add absorbency. This also allowed you to turn the diaper inside out to get the insert cleaner. The XS doesn’t have this pocket. I don’t love AIOs as much as I do pockets and I wish Bumgenius would release an XS pocket diaper, or a mini one size pocket diaper. Hint, hint, hint… 😉

Here is the XS measured folded and stretched:

They are definitely a bit smaller than the one size diapers, but not really any narrower/trimmer through the crotch. It seems a bit larger than some of the other newborn diapers I have. I’m guessing I will either have to fold it down under the umbilical cord, or gently place it over. Of course, that also means it will fit longer!

    Hey, I have a question. I can’t remember if I entered this one. See if I can learn something about Rafflecopter–I just entered it now, does it show me twice? Or is it not allowing people to enter twice? Thanks! 😀

    • October 13, 2011 at 11:06 am

      It uses cookies, so if you’ve deleted your cookies (or occasionally if it hiccups!) it will allow you to enter again. I always check for duplicate entries before I select a winner (and I don’t disqualify people if they accidentally entered twice!) so it’s no problem really!

      You already entered on Sunday, so I just deleted the second entry! 🙂

    • October 8, 2011 at 10:40 pm

      It seems to really depend on the baby’s shape! I’ve heard quite a few weights thrown out by different people!
