It is without a doubt that we will cloth diaper QB2 when she arrives. We will probably start once she’s home and I will be doing reviews again; this time, mostly on newborn/Size 1 diapers which I didn’t really get to cover a lot with Leo last time. We will still use disposables as and when necessary and will bring those to the hospital too. I just don’t wanna stress about cloth while in the hospital or the first few days (from being an emotional wreck maybe).
I’ve collected enough newborn dipes for this bub and maybe even too many! I just hope I have enough time to review each one before she grows out of it.
For the most part, it is the newborn hybrids and fitteds that I will review more on as there are little information/reviews on them. These are often WAHM (Work at Home Moms) diapers from the US and they make superb quality diapers. Made from all natural materials such as bamboo, hemp, and cotton, these diapers are often more expensive then regular market brands. I will also review and re-review some market brands as well, just to see how they fit and if it makes a difference on a boy or a girl.
Here’s a list of what I have and will be reviewing.
Newborn Hybrids and Fitteds. It is hard to get the exact picture of each of these brands as they are not as widely known to all. But I will attach the brands here. And actual photos when baby arrives!
They usually look like this; no matter which WAHM. Typically comes with an umbilical cord snapdown and fits from 5-12 lbs (2.5-5.5 kg). I have 10 brands to review.
Other market brands worth reviewing. These are typically fully waterproof; with PUL or TPU outer and will not require a cover. Some has the umbilical cord snapdown and some doesn’t. They are also AIOs (All-in-ones), except Applecheeks which is a pocket diaper.
- Tots Bots TeenyFit
2. Simplex Newborn AIO
3. Lil Joeys by Kangacare (same company as Rumparooz)
4. Grovia Newborn AIO
5. Thirsties Newborn AIO (old version)
6. Thirsties Newborn Fab Fitted
7. Applecheeks Size 1
That is all for now. These reviews will be for newborn/Size 1 diapers. Will probably do One-Sized diapers later on if there is a need or demand. OS diapers typically will not fit baby until they are probably 7-8kg or 6 months onwards for a better fit.
Speaking of reviews, I would like to review some of our local WAHM diapers too. YES, we have Malaysian mamas here who make diapers as well and I’ve heard good stuff about them! Let’s see if that will happen 🙂 We must support local WAHM.
If you want to read about my previous cloth diaper reviews on my son, you can find it below. But please bear in mind that those reviews were done when he was below 12 months old and some of my experiences have changed (especially on absorbency)! Do read all 5 parts for a better understanding.
