Today I am reviewing three all in one cloth diapers: Koala Huggerz, Blueberry Basix and Tot Bots Easyfit. All three differ in many ways.
Actually, the similarities are pretty much limited to the fact that they are an all in one (AIO)!
First up is a Koala Huggerz AIO. Jen Arevalo is the owner of Koala Huggerz and provided me with a diaper for review.
Koala Huggerz is the largest fitting of these 3 diapers. With 4 rise settings you get a fit that expands from 17″ to 11″.
The bamboo soaker is hidden or sewn in making this truly a “sposie-like” cloth diaper.
Having a bamboo soaker is a huge plus. Microfiber is the most common soaker fabric used yet it tends to get the stinkies. Bamboo is not as absorbent right away but after several washes the absorbency increases.
Koala Huggerz AIOs are available in snap or velcro closure. I have the velcro version and while I love the ease of velcro it is not as sticky as I prefer.
Made in China and retails for ~$20-$25.
Next, is the Tots Bots Easyfit AIO.
Several months ago I showed you the new Tots Bots prints and colors. Today I’ll show you the details of the AIO.
(Let me tell you, the prints are some of the cutest I have ever seen. And they have even newer ones out now!)
Tots Bots Easyfit AIOs are one-sized with 3 snap down rise settings. The largest rise is 17″ and the smallest is 12″.
The inner and soaker fabric is a super soft minky. Minky remains soft wash after wash but I find it to be less absorbent than bamboo, microfiber and hemp. Although, it can hold enough moisture to last a couple of hours between changes.
Minky is not stay-dry so your child will feel the wetness. However, a fleece liner is included with every diaper for those sensitive to moisture.
The tongue soaker is long enough to tuck in and fold where your baby needs the absorbency. For Camden I add a fold to the front.
The pocket opening is in the back and there is no unstuffing needed–it will come out in the wash.
Tots Bots Easyfit AIOs (Go, Baby, Go!) are available in snaps (poppers) or hook&loop.
The hook&loop is sturdy and strong.
Retails for ~$23.95. Prints are limited at retailers (I linked to different retailers throughout this description). But, the solids function just the same!
Last, is the Blueberry Basix.
Rana Cox is the owner of Dearest Diapers and she sent me a giraffe print Blueberry Basix in size medium to review.
Blueberry Basix is a sized, side-snapping AIO. Side-snapping diapers are awesome. I wish more makers went this route.
Side-snapping cloth diapers give you a trim fit plus in the past I’ve found them to be excellent for babies with chunky thighs. With Paisley I used Blueberry sized, side-snapping minky pockets that are now discontinued. Cry.
This AIO is similar to the Easyfit in that the soaker is a tongue style.
However, the soaker is microfiber and it comes out the front. It is not long enough to customize the fold but lays evenly from front to back.
The inner is a stay-dry microfleece keeping baby feeling dry. Another difference with the Basix is a pass-through pocket. It is easy to add additional soakers to the back and allow them to come out on their own in the wash.
On its own the Basix is an absorbent diaper. Essentially you have 6 layers of microfiber as the soaker (3 are attached, 3 fold in as the tongue).
EXCITING NEWS: Blueberry/Swaddlebees just released new prints! But, I’m not sure if those prints will be available in the Basix. Still lots of cuteness to look at.
Retails at ~$16.95.
Rana had this to say about the Blueberry Basix:
They are super trim- great for under jeans/pants! Daddy friendly because they are an AIO (so no stuffing/assembly required-like my hubby likes to call it ;)
They are side snapping, so if you want to use them as a pull up for PL you could. Love the prints! Super soft/comfy cozy inside lining. AND they are Made in the USA!!!!!
One more comparison photo for you involves the overall size of the diapers. Koala Huggerz are the widest in the crotch are, Blueberry Basix the narrowest.
I imagine that Koala Huggerz would be a great choice for a large toddler. Camden is tall but fairly lean and he has a short rise. I don’t forsee him ever wearing a Koala Huggerz on the largest settings.
Last but not least!!! I have a giveaway for you!!
When Jen sent me a Koala Huggerz to review she included an extra and Rana would love to give a Blueberry Basix away! AND, at the very last minute (seriously) my friend Liz owner of Go Baby Go in San Antonio offered to include a Tots Bots Easyfit AIO!!
