I received a diaper at no cost for review purposes. I was not otherwise compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own. The name Chelory is a combination of owner Rachel and her husband Cory’s names. This WAHM has been a popular brand for several years and had often sold out at stockings. More than two years ago I bought a SD AIO, and the stock was so limited I had to take what I could get! Chelory recently sent their organic AIO for Katie and me to try.
Diapers have a snap down rise to fit babies from about 12-40 pounds. (Mini diapers fit 6-12 lbs.)
You can choose from hook & loop closures or snaps, and a variety of solids, prints, and even fun scrappy diapers.
Soakers and the inner are made of rayon from bamboo and Zorb, and the top soaker layer is a rayon from bamboo/cotton fabric. As you can see, the soakers are sewn in layers to dry a bit faster than if they were sewn all together.
A polyester border prevents wicking.
Small rise setting:
My son is not quite three years old, and about 27 pounds in these photos, on the medium rise setting.
I found this diaper to be very absorbent, and my son loved it. He would point at it hanging to dry and want it on again right away. I had to be sneaky when I packaged it up to send to Katie to use on her son. I did find (like any natural fiber diaper) it got a little “crunchy” when I line dried it, so I tossed it in the dryer for a few minutes to soften. It also takes quite a bit of time to dry, but flipping part of the soaker over the diaper seems to help.
Katie used the medium rise setting on her 7 month old, who weighs about 25 pounds. She did experience a bit of red marks across his chubby belly from the Velcro strip rubbing against his skin while he was sitting.
It was absorbent enough for long naps, and Katie feels it would be a good night time option for average/light wetters. It does take a while to hang dry, and needs a few minutes in the dryer to fluff up and lose the “crunchy” feeling.
Chelory’s AIO diapers sell for $32.95-$36.95 each – a bit more for unique, hand made “scrappy” diapers. You can also find AI2 shells at Chelory.
Have you tried Chelory?
