RagaBabe has been a favorite on All About Cloth Diapers since it first hit the market back in 2010. A lot of my personal cloth diaper stash is made up of RagaBabe. That says a lot when a cloth diaper blogger says she’s bought a lot of something! I did receive a diaper in return for this review. However, all opinions expressed are honest and true. Remember I said I’d bought a ton of these myself…true story!
Don’t want to take my word for it? You don’t have to! ;) See what everyone else is saying about RagaBabe! These awesome cloth diaper bloggers have allowed me to share their thoughts here with you. Make sure you send them some love! (Click the blue link above each quote to get more info and read their full reviews!)
Without sounding like a rabid Beiber fan I will just say that these diapers are Uh Ma Zing. Yeah, I went there. They are very much my style and any little punk rock kid would love to wear them. The prints are unique and the colors are still bold and fun.
…it really is as fabulous as everyone says it is…This diaper is crazy, even through unexpected naps and missed changes, unbelievable poops (WHY in the unicorn diaper as soon as I got it? WHY??) I want more…

Are RagaBabe diapers really all that? In a word, yes….I now have more Rags than any other brand in my stash…I am not a velcro fan (for the most part) but the RagaBabe velcro is super sticky and stays looking great. The laundry tabs have never come undone for me like they have with other velcro diapers I’ve owned.
Now I’m not going to lie. I’ve always hated velcro. After a while it just stops working. That’s not the case for Ragababes. Even the diapers I have bought on the Ragababe Market (Used) these diapers have fantastic hold. This is something very unique.
What makes RagaBabe cloth diapers so fabulous? Honestly, where do I start?
Amazing craftsmanship and SUPER high quality materials. These are made in the USA right in a little Main Street shop. It’s a family affair! Joy, her husband Andy and her parent’s Carol and Dave are all a huge part of the operation. Even their six kids pitch in!
Since RagaBabe first debuted, there have been a few improvements on an already fabulous diaper. RagaBabe cloth diapers feature an outer waterproof polyester TPU shell that is less susceptible to pilling, “Last-Ever’ elastic that should never need to be replaced, a double-thick soft interior lining, and ‘stickier’ laundry tabs. Believe me when I say these are among the stickiest hook and loop I’ve ever tried. Even if you are scared of velcro, I can promise you this will stay stuck!
The fit is unsurpassed. Super trim and super absorbent. RagaBabe stocks All in One and All in Two styles. The All in Two is the more popular version and the one I’m going to featured here.
Each RagaBabe AI2 comes with:
- A waterproof TPU cover which is heat sealed instead of chemically sealed. It’s better for the environment ;) Since these are All in Twos (AI2), that means you can get more than one use out of the shell. Just replace the soiled insert with a clean one and you are good to go. If the shell is slightly damp, I just lay out to air dry until the next change. If it’s soaked or soiled throw it in the wet bag. I could typically get 3-4 changes out of one shell before washing! The covers feature wide back elastic that is GREAT at keeping poo in and a generous waterproof tummy panel to help stop leaks for babies that are belly sleepers.
- A Bulletproof Hemp/Organic Cotton Sherpa snap in insert. They are five layers of hemp with organic cotton sherpa on top for faster absorption. There is an option to upgrade to a stay dry insert if desired. These inserts scored pretty high on my absorbency tests. Something else that makes the insert unique is the top layers are a looser knit than most hemp blends on the market for quick absorbency. The back layers consist of natural tight knit hemp/cotton for long lasting absorbency.
The RagaBabe All in Two is a sized diaper. It is available in 4 sizes that you can further customize with rise snaps allowing you to get the PERFECT fit for your baby. Available are:
- Size 0: 4-18 lbs
- Size 1: 9-30 lbs
- Size 2 : 15-40+ lbs
- Size 3: 23-50+ lbs
The size 3 is made to fit bigger toddlers or children with special needs. And I do also want to briefly mention the RagaBabe Newborn Cloth Diaper. They can fit really tiny babies starting at 4 lbs and go to about 12 lbs. So you have a wide size range and potential for them fitting for a good time period. While not the most economical option, it is one of the best fitting and absorbent newborn diapers I used. You can often find a deal on one in the RagaBabe Buy Sell Trade on Facebook.
Here is Sophia in her Size 2 Ponies. She is 38″ tall and 34 pounds and just wears diapers at night now. You can see that this diaper still has PLENTY of room.
I’m truly surprised when I don’t see celebrity mom’s like Alyssa Milano and Serena Williams using RagaBabes on their babies. I mean, Ragababe seems like the height of what a hip, Hollywood mom would look for. Trim, absorbent, well-made and adorable with the trademark star closure. Hollywood needs to get with it because these cloth diapers are COOL.
RagaBabe also sells wet bags, wipes bags, super soft cloth wipes and blankets and a selection of t-shirts and hoodies.
I hope you won’t miss out on all that amazingness! The price tag on an AI2 is high at $39.95. But the resale on RagaBabes is great due to a loyal following of very happy, long-term customers. When you are done using them you can recoup a good percentage of what you originally paid.
RagaBabe does keep a variety of styles and prints in stock. You can find them at https://www.shop.ragababe.com/
All stockings are announced on their Facebook page, so be sure to LIKE them because stuff can go fast!

I could go on and on about how much I love RagaBabe but I am literally running out of space!
