The absorbency is fantastic with these diapers! My heavy wetter can go all night with no leaks! These diapers are SO soft and I like the rolled elastic at the legs (make sure you roll it in to avoid moisture wicking). They run a little smaller than other brands, but have a perfect fit for my skinny legged little girl (the elastic is soft so larger legs would not have a problem). I absolutely LOVE the snap version, and would recommend it to all cloth diapering parents; however, the hook and loop is not the best. I wish I could trade it in for another snap, because the diaper fabric is too soft/flexible to protect my baby's belly from the rough strip-it rolls into her belly, leaving red rub marks. The laundry tabs, on the hook and loop, do not hold the wing tabs well enough, so it gets stuck to other items in the load. Yes, hook and loop is easier for many, but I would not recommend it.
I absolutely love these diapers. My LO is an extremely heavy wetter and "power ***'r". He pees through most diapers immediately. Not these! These hold him until a normal change time. They are very generously sized, he can fit with no rise unsnapped and one rise unsnapped at 8 months old. They are not bulky at all. I personally love the rolled elastic feature and don't find it takes me any more time than a diaper without it, as I usually check the legs for a proper fit anyway, so I just tuck in the elastic at the same time.
Pros: *Incredibly good fit, even on my chunky-monkey 2 month old who is wearing 9 month clothes! I can tell it is going to fit him until *****-training (we ***** trained his brother at 22 months and plan to do the same with him). *Velcro seems strong and well-attached. *Very soft, well-designed, well-made diaper. *Holds huge BM's like they aren't even there. *Incredibly affordable. *Wide range of colors and prints for the same price. *Very trim - surprisingly - for all the punch it packs. Cons: *Not made in the USA. That is literally the only bad thing I can see. Good to know: *The snap-in bamboo-terry insert takes a long time to dry. This is not a con; it just IS (because they absorb SO much liquid, they take longer to dry). Bottom line, I would buy 30 of this diaper if I had the budget, I would recommend them to friends and strangers alike, and the company has been easy to work with. Two thumbs up. Just really, really wish they were made in the US.
Technically I would give this diaper 4 1/2 stars, because it is allllmost perfect, but not quite. This diaper never leaks, is trim, and at a great price point. The only thing I don't care for about the diaper is that you have to roll the leg casing in after you put it on. I feel like an AIO is supposed you be quick snap and go, and that kind of defeats the purpose of having an AIO. There are other brands of diapers that have rolled elastic, but the difference is that they are sewn so that it automatically rolls in, these are not. If they would just tweak the pattern slightly, and have them roll in automatically (think old bGE) it would be the perfect diaper. Since rolling the legs in got old, I stretched the elastic tightly and sewed a casing on each side, so now I don't have to roll it every time, and it is so much better. It hasn't led to any wicking or anything like that, just a much quicker diaper change with an awesome diaper!
