Cloth Diapers Giveaway Made in the USA Microfiber Natural Fiber One Size Diapers Pocket Diapers Side Snapping Snap Closure

Giveaway – Knickernappies One Size Cloth Diaper w/Loopydo Inserts (CLOSED 3/8) U.S./Canada

Knickernappies 1

Last year, I reviewed the Knickernappies one-size cloth diaper. My son was 23 months old and about 22 pounds when I posted my Knickernappies one-size cloth diaper review, wearing the medium rise setting and next to smallest snap setting. Be sure to check out that review for all the nitty gritty details, measurements, and photos of my son at that size!

Prices have gone up a little bit since I posted my original review, but you can get the diaper with small and large microfiber inserts for $21.95, or with small and large loopydo inserts for $26.95. Loopydo inserts sell for $7.49 each separately (worth every penny BTW) so $5 extra for two is a great deal!

I received a diaper in Knickernappies’ very first print, Ooga Booga! It’s adorable of course (I do love Ooga monsters!) and I love the matching inner.

While the diaper comes with small and large inserts, they are available in small, medium & large. I’ve been using Superdo inserts at night for two years, and I continue to sing their praises! The small inserts fit in my mini one-size diapers that are a bit wider through the crotch, the mediums fit in most small one-size diapers, and the larges are what I’ve been using since my older son was in mediums (he’s still using them now in the large setting.)

Knickernappies 9 superdo loopydo inside

Both the loopydo and superdo inserts are hemp (6 layers for the superdo, 2 for the loopydo) sandwiched between 2 layers of microfiber.

The loopydo is barely thicker than a microfiber insert alone, but far more absorbent. The superdo was a lifesaver at night for us, getting through every night dry. I had tried two microfiber inserts with a hemp doubler, but they were so thick, we ended up with leg gap. Thick insert + 12 hours of use=a little stinky, so I used to bleach my inserts once per month (I don’t need to anymore since adding Oxiclean to every load.) Bleach isn’t good for natural fibers, so after two years, there is some wear on the hemp of my superdos, but they still work fantastically!

Of course, all that absorbency makes the diaper a little bit fluffier! Above is a diaper with a microfiber insert and one with a superdo.

Above is my son at 10 weeks old and around 10 pounds. It fits him with no leg gap, and is quite trim for a o/s diaper on such a small baby. He’s wearing the blue with a large microfiber insert & the ooga with a small loopydo.

My older son is now 2 years & 9 months old, and about 29 pounds. He’s wearing the largest rise setting, but it hits him quite high, and he has two snap settings to go. He has tons of room to grow!

Giveaway: One winner will receive a Knickernappies one-size diaper in their choice of color (subject to availability), with Loopydo inserts. The retail value of this prize is $26.95. Entries go in the Rafflecopter form.

Knickernappies One-Size Pocket Diaper Winner

I had a lot of fun reading these entries. Some people made me a little envious that they had a cloth diaper store literally right down the street from them. Then again, I felt bad for those who are even further away from one than I am! Then there’s poor Breanne…her closest retailer is 2398.3 miles away. However, since she is in Hawaii, I can’t feel too sorry for her!

Congratulations Kristina! I’m emailing you so you can claim your prize and choose your color!

Cloth Diapers Giveaway Made in the USA One Size Diapers Pocket Diapers Review Side Snapping Snap Closure

Knickernappies One Size Pocket Diaper Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 5/3)

knickernappies cloth diaper

Last year, I won not one, but two Knickernappies 2G (sized) pocket diapers (now called Knickernappies Custom Fit Pocket Diapers,) but I’ve never tried a Knickernappies One-Size.

I tend to gravitate towards one-size diapers, even though my son has been in mediums since 4 months/14 lbs and is still in mediums at 23 months/22 lbs! My daughter was an itty bitty peanut, but my son started out so much bigger, I thought he’d be my hefty kid. His growth slowed and he’s been at the bottom of the charts, just like his sister. I kicked myself for not cloth diapering her, since she wouldn’t have needed anything bigger than a medium. (This was almost 7 years ago, when the only modern cloth I could find was one brand of sized diapers; I thought I’d need 25 each XS-XL and balked at the $2k+ price tag. Dumb me.)

I was so fortunate to receive a Knickernappies One-Size Diaper courtesy of Knickernappies. The diapers and the inserts are made in the USA. Knickernappies provides a two-year warranty on elastic and a lifetime warranty on snaps!

knickernappies cloth diaper 1 inserts

I received the turquoise, which is a gorgeous, gender neutral blue. The one-size diapers include two microfiber inserts (small and large) for $19.95. They are also available with the Loopydo inserts (my absolute favorite inserts) for $24.95. Definitely worth the $5 upgrade, though the included microfiber inserts are incredibly absorbent too!

knickernappies cloth diaper 2 snaps

Like the sized diapers, the one-size is a side snapping diaper, with 5 snap settings for a great fit on any size baby.

knickernappies cloth diaper 3 rise snaps

The one-size diaper adjusts to 4 sizes by way of rise snaps; Knickernappies refers to the sizes as small, medium-short, medium and large. Knickernappies has tested the diaper to fit babies from 8-40 pounds.

The diaper has a super soft, pill resistant microfleece (stay dry) inner and a rear pocket opening.  The elastic is lastin elastic, which won’t “go out” like the usual stuff.

Here is the small setting measured folded and stretched:

You can view my Knickernappies Custom Fit Diaper Review for measurements of the medium, but here are a few photos to show how the two compare:

Obviously one is sized and one is one-size, but they are otherwise very similar. My one-size doesn’t have the front elastic that my sized diaper has though.

and the medium compared to the one-size on large and small:

I put my son in the medium setting. He is on the next-to-tightest snaps, so he has one more rise setting and three snap settings to grow into! Again, he is 23 months old and about 22 pounds (estimated, not totally sure!)

For some reason, he looks like he has a wedgie in these pictures, but he didn’t! It was just the way the PUL creased. The insert and inners weren’t giving him an atomic wedgie as it appears!

I can also assure you that the inserts are extremely absorbent. At the risk of making myself sound like a terrible mother, he had this diaper on (with the large insert only) for nearly twice the time I’d usually leave a diaper on him. We went to visit my Grandmother at the nursing home and when we came home, my husband was outside. The kids wanted to play outside, so I seized the opportunity to cook dinner uninterrupted. When it was ready, we got cleaned up, ate dinner, cleaned up again and…oh no! it had been almost 4 hours since I changed him. 🙁 The insert was pretty darn wet, but not a single leak!

Mailbox Mondays

Mailbox Mondays 11/8/10


email me

Every Monday I will answer user submitted questions. They don’t have to be about cloth diapering! I’ll always answer questions via email, but if you would like your question to be answered in a Mailbox Mondays post, send an email with the subject “Mailbox Mondays” to Maria at change-diapers dot com.

Naomi says:

Hey Maria,

Talk to me(us) about hemp vs. bamboo. Any recommendations of brands for a hemp or bamboo insert?

Overnight diapers for my 3 year old are getting pretty bulky. I usually sandwich a terry hemp doubler between two microfiber inserts in a generic pocket. That usually does the trick, but I’ve only got two of the hemp guys and when I’m out, I stuff the poor pockets to the gills with microfiber (3 inserts or 2 inserts with a mf towel). While dd doesn’t seem to care about the bulk, it gets hard to stuff and when family sees her overnight diaper it is pretty comical.

I don’t mind bulk, but am wondering which material to try and get inserts of. I’ve heard a lot about wool covers, but right now can only afford to stay with my pockets for overnight and just get a couple used inserts.

Great question!  I’ve been fortunate in that several of the diapers I’ve purchased/reviewed came with natural fiber inserts, and they are definitely top notch for nighttime diapering.

natural fiber inserts

babykicks hemp insert babykicks

In no particular order, first is the insert that came with my Babykicks Bumboo Pocket Diaper.  This is 55% hemp and 45% cotton.  Babykicks also sells Joey Bunz, Joey Bunz Premium (both sized) and doublers separately.  (There should be some in the CSN giveaway in the Merry Fluffy Christmas event!)  

amp insert

My Amp Duo Diaper came with a 2-layer hemp insert, as well as a bamboo insert.  The inserts look like a smallish prefold that you trifold, and they also come in 3-layer hemp, as well as organic cotton.

blueberry hemp microfiber insert

My Blueberry Minky was one I bought after only cloth diapering for about a month, and it was my first experience with a microfiber/hemp combo.  It’s a one size insert that snaps down to different sizes, and a 3-pack retails separately for $19.95.

cotton hemp doublers

These doublers were kind of random.  They were loose in the package with the Blueberry diapers I bought last year.  I believe they are organic cotton and bamboo doublers but I’m not entirely sure.  I use both of them at night.  I have 4 night time diapers in my rotation right now.  My Guerilla Fluff Utilitarian with a Mobums Wool Interlock Night Night Soaker, a Dypes by Dixon Sweet Slumber fleece pocket stuffed with the superdo, and two Bumgenius 3.0 pockets, one stuffed with a microfiber insert and one of the random hemp/cotton doublers, the other stuffed with the loopydo with the second random doubler in between.

loopydo insert

Speaking of which, I wholeheartedly recommend the Knickernappies Superdo and Loopydo inserts.  I purchased these out of utter desperation when my son was soaking every insert I had, and I was creating a monster leg gap by putting 3 inserts in a pocket.  They really are rather pricey at $7.50 for a loopydo and $12.95 for a superdo, but I think they are worth it.  I tried to be cheap and buy the large size for my son’s medium diapers, but they are quite bulky folded over.  I love the microfiber/hemp combo because the microfiber whisks the moisture away from my son’s skin, and the hemp locks it away. 

OK, I feel like a paper towel commercial.  Really though, if you are looking for a solution for a heavy wetter, I highly recommend them.  The only problem I have with them is that they can become quite stinky.  When I notice that, I wash (inserts only) with about 1/4 cup of bleach, then rinse rinse rinse until the water is clean and the inserts don’t smell like bleach anymore!
If I had the money to spend, I’d love to have more superdo/loopydo inserts.  I’ve been wanting to buy some mediums for a while but I’ve been trying to stick to the budget!

These are just the inserts I own, there are of course lots of other natural fiber inserts/prefolds out there!

So how about the rest of you?  Do you have a favorite natural fiber insert?
