Review: Bumkins One-Size Stuff-It Cloth Diaper on a Newborn

Our little bundle is finally here and we're so excited to be trying cloth diapers on a newborn little boy! It's very interesting, let me tell you. I thought my stash was huge. Then little baby T reminded me that newborns can go again, and again, and again - all in half an hour. I'm getting the hang of it and no longer change him the second he goes!

We recently tried the Bumkins One-Size Stuff-it diaper on our 5 day old son. Of course I didn't expect it to fit perfectly, it is huge really. If you're looking for a trim newborn diaper, this is not it. Now that he is a week and a half it actually fits a lot better. If you want a pocket diaper that is super easy to use, will do the job even on a newborn, and will fit all through cloth diapering years - Bumkins nailed it. I'm starting to really warm up to aplix closure, especially with a newborn. It's so much easier than snaps when the baby is kicking and wriggling, not to mention crying and waking everyone up in the middle of the night. You can see in the photo that it is huge on a 7 pound newborn, but nevertheless it works. Since the baby isn't crawling anywhere, it actually contains newborn poop quite well because it is so absorbent despite the gaps around the thighs. For wet diapers though it doesn't do so well with just the one insert it comes with, I would use a small hemp or bamboo doubler.

The diaper is extremely light, not at all bulky, a feature that I really like. I anticipate that after the baby puts on a few pounds it will fit really great, just need some of that baby fat on the waist and thighs. I also love the prints, we have the gender neutral green/blue Turtle print. The outside fabric is very nice to the touch, it is silky soft. It is reasonably priced at $14.95 each.This diaper washes great, I love that the insert comes out on its own in the wash. Overall just a very user friendly diaper - I like simple!
