I took advantage of the annual Black Friday sale at Wink Diapers to pick up a few diapers for our baby on the way. We have previously tried Wink one-size diapers, and I was curious to know how the size 4 to 18 pound styles would work. Now that Mary Kate has arrived, and we’ve had about 4 weeks to try the diapers out, I’d like to share our experience with you. Bailey at Wink Diapers has also offered to do a giveaway.
I bought the 4-18 lb Hybrid Cover (in the Orville print) which retails for $11.99 and the 4-18 lb Organic Bamboo AIO (in Rebel Red) which retails for $17.99. Both of these diapers are also available in a larger size for older babies and toddlers.
Here are the two diapers opened up.
The (red) bamboo AIO is made with a waterproof outer and a six-layer organic bambo terry core. At the inner front is a waterproof leak guard. The diaper has double gussets at the legs, back elastic and extra hip snaps to prevent sagging. The rise snaps give you 4 sizes to choose from.
The diaper cover also adjusts to 4 sizes via the rise snaps, and has double leg gussets and back elastics. The front and back inner flaps for holding diapers or insert in place are very wide.
Wink diapers come with a 12-month warranty.
The Wink cover is highly adjustable at the waist and legs, thanks to all the snaps. This also means there are a lot of snaps to fasten – not always easy on a wriggly newborn. I mentioned above that the front and back flaps are very deep; this helps hold diapers and inserts in place very well. But you don’t have to use them, and can just lay a prefold or flat inside.
Both diapers fit well with the rise snapped to the smallest setting on newborn Mary Kate, who was 9 pounds and 20.5 inches at birth. After the first 2 weeks, I moved to the next rise snap, and we still have 2 to go (photos below). It’s nice to have a cover that will continue to grow with your baby!
Because the bamboo AIO has layers of fabric sewn inside, there is more bulk at the front when you snap up the rise. For this reason, I ended up using the cover more. It’s just more trim. As far as absorbency goes, the AIO is very good, holding our little girl for an average of 3 hours. It does take a little bit more than one cycle to fully dry, though.
You can purchase Wink diapers, covers and inserts at their online shop with free shipping on orders over $50. Sign up for the newsletter while you’re there, because Bailey has really impressive sales periodically!
