This is one of those diapers that just has so many things I love. That being said, I do feel it’s a bit of a specialty diaper because of its larger size. I’ll get more into that below. The Supreme All in One was released in early 2019 in response to a need for bigger sizing in the Lighthouse Kids Company lineup. The original one size all in one was trim, but fit small. Having both diapers allows Lighthouse Kids Company to serve a much larger range of sizes.
I received this diaper from The Green Tot Spot in exchange for a review. All opinions stated are honest and true.
The Green Tot Spot has a great selection of cloth diapers including Lighthouse Kids Company. They also feature a cloth diaper rental program. The rentals are great to try a few different brands or styles without having to commit to buying before you try them. Make sure you follow The Green Tot Spot on Facebook so you get first dibs on new Lighthouse Kids print releases!
FYI! The Green Tot Spot has free shipping US at $5 and rewards points!
What I really love
The quality of materials and craftsmanship.
The TPU outer looks as great as it did the day it was new. It has a nice, soft feel to it. Not stiff at all. Though not floppy feeling like some covers can feel. I’ve been using and washing the Lighthouse Kids Supreme all in one for about 3 months now. So far there are no pulls or imperfections on the outside.
The snaps are STRONG. They give a nice POP when closed. Good for kids that like to remove their diapers. While not impossible, they would really have to do some work to get this unsnapped.
The inner fabric of the shell is athletic wicking jersey. That’s actually one of my favorite stay dry fabrics. Although, it’s not serving that purpose here. The site description says it is hypoallergenic. I’m guessing that it was also used to perhaps speed drying time because it allows for better air flow? The fabric does now have a few pulls here and there buy nothing major.
More about the what you get
The Lighthouse Kids Supreme is labeled as an All in One (AIO). And it is, until you add the detached insert.
The attached insert is made of 2 layers of bamboo from rayon with a layer of microsuede to provide a stay dry liner. You can fold the insert to either have the stay dry against baby or fold it in to have the bamboo against baby. This is helpful if you need it for babies with wetness sensitivity and also good if they have a sensitivity to synthetic fabrics. It becomes a 4 layer insert when you fold it over, just as any prefold would work when you fold it.
I tested the absorbency of both inserts using the standard method I use on all my tests. The attached insert came in at 9 oz.
On to the detached 4 layer insert!
It’s really a prefold and is constructed the same way the attached insert is. Four layers of bamboo rayon and a layer of microsuede. It becomes 8 layers when folded. In the absorbency tests the detached insert scored 11 oz.
Using the attached insert by itself certainly makes for a trimmer fit.
However you decide to use it, you are getting quite a bit of absorbency with all included pieces which total 20 oz of absorbing power.
The Lighthouse Kids Company Supreme AIO is labeled to fit 15-55 lbs. It’s always nice to see a larger sized cloth diaper come to the market as I feel it’s a undeserved segment. I think this diaper really shines in the 25 lb and up range as a great day diaper for a heavy wetters or times when you need extra absorbency like long naps or car rides.
I personally wouldn’t recommend this as a night diaper unless your kiddo is a light wetter at night.
I can’t say how the Lighthouse Kids Company Supreme AIO fits a 15 lb baby because I didn’t have this diaper when I had a 15 lb baby. In my experience, I would imagine there would be no way to use the included detached 4 layer insert on a small baby. I think you would end up with legs gaps at that stage using all the absorbency. You might also have difficulty containing the inserts due to their length when the diaper is snapped all the way down. Obviously, the age where your baby will fit well will vary because they are all built differently. If you have used this diaper on small babies, leave a comment and let us know how it fit!
I think this diaper really shines on chunky babies, ones with chubbier thighs, and older toddlers.
Norah is almost 3 years old and is around 32 pounds. I keep going between snapping the rise one down or leaving it all the way open. I think leaving it unsnapped gives a slightly better fit at this point because it allows extra space for the inserts to sit. There is still LOTS of room to grow in this diaper.
Things I might change
The inserts seem to be sized to fit the diaper when the rise is unsnapped. On the lowest rise it tends to poke out of the front. You can fold and tuck to keep in contained. I would really like to see the front tummy panel be a small flap instead. That way you wouldn’t have to worry about the inserts poking out on the smaller settings because a flap would contain it better.
These are priced at $23.99 with the attached insert only or $27.99 when you add the detached insert.

LKC has updated their absorbancy by adding extra layers recently. Has this review been updated or an absorbancy test been run since the Seaglass release? I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
This is missing the extra layer. One layer won’t significantly raise absorbency but it certainly does help. I’d have to see if anyone was willing to send me the new ones since I JUST got these.
