The RagaBabe Easy AIO/Medium/heart print was my “unicorn” diaper. I had been pining about that darn thing since the first time I laid eyes on it. My pictures are kinda terrible because I wouldn’t wait to put it on him, and I didn’t want to get all my stuff set up to take good photos, ha ha!
Since this was my “unicorn diaper,” I’m using it for June’s Blog Hop post! Link yours!
It wasn’t the price tag ($29.95 plus $3.95 shipping) that kept me from buying. They are really difficult to buy! Only certain types, prints and sizes are stocked, and it’s always in a very limited quantity. You have to be paying attention to catch a stocking, and items often sell out before you can click. If you have a specific item you want (like I did) it’s even harder. I’ve never actually gotten one from a stocking, but after you buy, there’s an additional step of filling out a spreadsheet or something like that. I would much rather pay more and wait, for a custom diaper. I did ask but the owner doesn’t do that.
If you like my Facebook page, you’ve already heard the story of how I came to own (two) of my unicorn diaper. I have been looking for one for months, and had a saved Ebay search. I had considered buying diapers that came up that weren’t quite what I wanted (different color, different style etc.) but couldn’t bring myself to pay $50 for a diaper that wasn’t quite what I wanted. When a Ragababe Medium Easy AIO/Heart Print, new in package came up on my saved search, my heart skipped a beat. I hemmed and hawed, finally bidding, justifying it with all the $ I’ve saved by cloth diapering 2 kids! I was outbid, but a cloth diaper angel sent me a message and made my day. She had snagged a few in the “seconds” stocking, including my unicorn diaper, which turned out to actually be 1st quality. She agreed to sell it to me for only her cost (around $37.) I agreed, but I didn’t tell my hubby quite yet. I honestly don’t think my husband would care if I paid $100 for a diaper, but saying the price out loud made me feel a little sick.
I was outbid on the Ebay diaper, and found out shortly after that the winning bidder was my husband!! I love that he was paying that much attention to know how much I loved that diaper, and to buy it for me. It meant way more to me than if he had spent a small fortune on some expensive jewelry, because of the thought behind it!
So, now I have two of these diapers, and part of me was hoping that I could tell you that it wasn’t as great as people said it was, only so that I don’t have to pine away for the tie dye, aqua, olive and black colors too, or sob when my son outgrows them. I’m a little sad to say….it really is as fabulous as everyone says it is.
The RagaBabe signature is the adorable star shaped hook & loop overlap with laundry tabs that actually work.
The diaper includes a pocket in the front, with a PUL flap to cover it and to stop leaks/wicking onto clothing. You can stuff the included organic cotton sherpa liner, or a doubler or insert (sold separately) inside the pocket (or lay it inside the diaper) for additional absorbency. The diaper has a stay-dry, suedecloth inner (way softer than other suedecloth in my opinion) and a sewn in, bamboo rayon soaker that is contoured for a trim fit.
The AIO comes in 4 sizes; Newborn or 6-15 lbs, Small or 9-20 lbs, Medium or 14-30 lbs and Large or 23-40 lbs. I bought the medium for my 16ish pound 9 month old. Here it is measured folded and stretched:
The diaper has a wide waistband and contoured leg gussets.
I think my son could probably fit in the size small, but I’ll never get my hands on one to find out, ha ha.
The best part though is the amazing fit an insane absorbency!
This diaper is crazy, even through unexpected naps and missed changes, unbelievable poops (WHY in the unicorn diaper as soon as I got it? WHY??) I want more, and I honestly don’t regret all the money we paid for them! What a memory, right?? Too bad I will probably never get my hands on another one!
My husband and I paid (way too much!) for the pictured diaper(s). I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.
