It’s been a while since I did a diaper review, and I have one today to share with you. Buttons diapers recently came out with new newborn and super sized diapers to add to their one size (OS) diaper collection. When I first started cloth diapering, I only wanted to spend money on OS diapers, but now that I’ve been using cloth for over four years, I can see so many benefits on spending the extra money and getting sized diapers for the different stages babies go through.
Why should you add sized cloth diapers to your stash?
*They fit better under newborn clothing. I started out with OS diapers when Jeremiah was one month old. While they did fit him without leaks (check out my blog post on OS diapers that DO fit newborns here), they were bulky under clothing, especially onesies. I quickly realized with Evelyn how nice it was to have a handful of newborn covers to use the first few months so she could fit in all her adorable outfits. The Buttons newborn cover is one of my favorites because it fits both tiny newborns, but also has rise snaps so it can grow and fit a baby well even after they aren’t newborns anymore. Caleb easily fit in his Buttons newborn cover at three-four months old.
*They fit larger toddlers better. Buttons super covers are perfect for toddlers when they are close to outgrowing their OS diaper covers. They are roomy enough to fit larger inserts (or even a fitted for night time), but can still get small enough to fit seven month old Caleb! They have flaps inside to hold inserts in place without them poking out the top or back. If you have chunky babies or toddlers that potty train later, the super covers are perfect for you.
*If you’re going to have two kids of different ages in cloth at the same time, you’ll need twice as many diapers anyway. So why not get the second set in a size that better fits one of your kiddos?
Want my honest opinion? If you’re on a tight cloth diaper budget, I’d stick with OS diapers (because Buttons OS diapers DO fit newborns and my 2.5 year old toddler). BUT, if you plan on cloth diapering more than one child and have the extra money, I’d totally take some of your budget and get some of the Buttons sized diapers…either newborn, super, or some of each!
