My last post was about how much liquid cloth diapers hold. I actually really enjoyed doing the experiment. Sophia did too because of all the water that ended up on the floor by the time we were done! I use a lot of All in One cloth diapers as well as night time fitteds and was curious how they would stand up to the test. This time, I actually was surprised about how much liquid these held!
For testing, I used the all in one as it arrived off the shelf. No additional absorbency added. The overnight fitteds were tested including the inserts and doublers that came with them when purchased. I used all one sized (OS) or the large version of the cloth diaper.
Overnight Fitted Results (check out the amount on that first one!!! I was blown away!)
37 oz…Twinkie Tush Night-Nights OS cotton velour
30 oz…Kissing Blake Extended/Night time Hybrid Fitted OS organic bamboo fleece
28 oz…Sustainablebabyish size large organic bamboo fleece
I can honestly say all three of these fitteds are EXCELLENT choices for night. Pair with a lanolized wool cover and you really have a perfect night cloth diaper. Obviously, Twinkie Tush blew it out of the water on this. They are a little bulky because of all the included absorbency. But the trade off is the amount it can hold…wow! Also, the Twinkie Tush has stayed incredibly soft even months of washing in my hard water. It’s pricey, but if you want the ultimate solution for dry mornings, I suggest trying to get your hands on one.
All in ones (or AIO for short) are the supreme in easy when it comes to cloth diapers. You wash, they wear, you take off and repeat. That’s it. No stuffing and no assembly required. Super convenient for you and perfect for daddy, grandma or daycare.
13 oz…Chelory AIO OS Stay dry bamboo and zorb
12 oz…Ragababe AIO Large bamboo
11.5 oz.Opulent Monsters OMMO OS bamboo/ cotton fleece
10 oz…Sweet Pea AIO OS bamboo velour, bamboo fleece and microfiber
8.5 oz.Bum-Ware AIO BWX2 OS microfiber
I’ve often said that Ragababe is my favorite AIO. It fared really well in these tests. The Chelory AIO did hold more liquid. The trade off is that it can take a while to dry. You can separate the soaker layers before drying to help the process along though. The Ragababe AIO when hung overnight is totally dry in the morning.
