It’s time to welcome the New Year with another cloth diaper review and giveaway! My friends at Green Team Enterprises Distribution sent us a Little Comfort Bambee One-Size Fitted Diaper made of soft, luxurious bamboo for Susanna to try out over the Christmas holidays and we sure do love it!
Little Comfort diapers are made in Ireland and just recently became available in the United States, so this is something else to celebrate for the New Year! Their line-up includes fitteds, Popeasy Mini and Maxi pocket diapers, prefold boosters, diaper covers, changing mats, wipes, liners, wet bags and more.
The Bambee one-size is made of 80% bamboo pico/20% polyester and 70% bamboo/30% cotton fleece. The addition of polyester means this diaper dries more quickly than 100% bamboo. The snap-in bamboo/cotton soakers can be used together or separately.
I love how this diaper feels! The outer material is like super silky terry cloth; it’s definitely a luxury fabric. And the diaper itself is very soft and squeezable – if babies could talk I’m sure they would say it feels amazing to wear!
Here is the diaper opened up so you can see the two soakers snapped in, plus a close-up of how the soakers are constructed:
This is the second fitted I’ve tried this year, and I’m really learning to appreciate this type of diaper. Pretty much every part of a fitted diaper (the wings, the front, the back) soaks up wetness, which is why they are so incredibly absorbent and a great choice for naps and night time. Susanna is almost 18 months old so we used the Size 2 setting for her.
Switching to Size 1 for smaller babies is simple; you just fold the rise down before snapping the diaper into place. When using the Size 1 setting, the soakers don’t snap in since the rise is folded down and it covers the snaps inside.
The fit is excellent and Susanna can even wear it a little while without a cover. However, it fits best and stays put without any sagging when paired with a nice trim PUL cover. For overnight, pairing with wool is a great combo!
I’m very impressed with the absorbency of our Little Comfort fitted. It’s great for day and night and gets Susanna through her naps just fine. I’m not sure how it would perform with a heavy-wetting toddler, but it would definitely be worth trying out. And is it quicker to dry than 100% bamboo? Yes! We have other bamboo diapers in our stash and they do take longer to dry than the Little Comfort. So I think adding the 20% polyester was a smart choice, as it gives Little Comfort a bit of an edge compared to other fitteds, yet it is still primarily a “natural” diaper. The fleece-topped soakers also provide a nice stay-dry effect that you don’t find in all fitted diapers.
There’s only one thing I noticed that might be an issue with our Little Comfort fitted. You can see from the photos that although Susanna is wearing the diaper at the Size 2 setting, the waist is almost maxed out with only one more snap. What that means is this diaper might not get small enough in the waist for a skinny newborn. I will be trying it on my little one due in just 10 days and share my feedback with you in January!
The Little Comfort one-size fitteds are very reasonably priced at $18.00 to $19.00 each, and because they are adjustable you’ll get lots of use out of them – quite possibly from birth to potty training.
