Change-Diapers received product samples at no cost for review purposes. We were not otherwise compensated for this post and all opinions are our own. Buttons Diapers were designed by a husband and wife team in Washington, and are CPSIA certified after being manufactured responsibly in China.
One size covers are designed to fit babies from 9-35 pounds and have inserts and doublers that snap in (or use your favorite absorbency laid inside).
Covers have a single row of closure snaps with a hip snap and overlap, a snap down rise and belly elastic.
PUL is thick and sturdy and each cover has double gussets to contain messes.
I received a daytime microfiber insert which is 4 layers of microfiber topped with soft microfleece. Inserts are available in small (9-20 lbs) or large (20-35 lbs). Need more absorbency? You can choose a 4 layer hemp/cotton blend insert that is also topped with microfleece. Night time doublers are available in small or large sizes and are 5 layers of hemp/organic cotton or 6 layers of microfiber to snap beneath the daytime insert and get your baby through the night dry.
Here is the small rise setting:
My son is 3 years old and a petite 28 lbs. He wears the medium rise setting of most diapers but I put him in the large:
I’ve never been able to get a great fit on him with any diaper that has belly elastic since he’s on the slender side & it tends to slide down. Even so the diaper worked very well for him and we had no leaks or issues.
Katie tried the diaper on her 27 lb chunky 1 year old. She also used it on the largest rise setting and said it reminds her of another brand with similar snap in inserts, but was a bit bigger and fit her chubby son better. She was also able to swap another brand inserts in. The snap in insert is great since it stays in place as he has started walking.
The double gussets keep messes in and the double thickness PUL is nice for a heavy wetter. Katie also received the daytime insert and noted that additional absorbency would be needed for night time. The front elastic is perfect for her tummy sleeper since it keeps the diaper right against his belly with no gap for leaking.
One size covers retail for $11 for solids and $12.50 for prints. Microfiber inserts are $3.50 each and hemp/cotton inserts are $7.75 each.
