Nicki’s Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

I have to be honest, with the beautiful spring/summer weather we’ve been enjoying, I haven’t been spending much time inside to blog.  And with our new house comes new landscaping projects…something I REALLY enjoy doing!  So, with a little more dirt under my fingernails and a lot more green in my flower beds, I’m ready to get back to sharing some of my favorite baby products with you today.

You may already know I’m a huge fan of Nicki’s Diapers and their Buy One Give One program from past blog posts.  I’ve tried all their one size cloth diaper products, so when Caleb was born, they were kind enough to send me some of their newborn diapers to try out as well.  Of course, they did not disappoint!  Today, I’d like to share Nicki’s three newborn cloth diaper options: an All In One, a cover, and a fitted.

Newborn Bamboo All In One

Fit: Of the three Nicki’s newborn diapers, the bamboo AIO (All In One) is the smallest.  This is perfect for really tiny newborns and fits nice and trim under onesies.  As you can see in the above picture, it’s already on its largest waist setting for 11 lb Caleb.  There are no rise snaps on this diaper.

Function: With the bamboo insert that can snap out for easier washing and drying, this AIO is very absorbent.  However, if your baby is a super soaker, they still may be able to out-pee this diaper within a few weeks.  You have the choice between snap and aplix closure, and I prefer the snaps for Nicki’s brand.  Nicki’s also has a newborn Ultimate AIO you can choose, if you prefer stay dry material for your baby.

Favorites: If you have small babies and want a diaper that is easy to use, this newborn bamboo AIO is the perfect choice for you.  The natural fiber bamboo insert is soft against the baby’s skin and is quick to put on.

Newborn Overnight Bamboo Fitted

Fit: Another great choice for tiny babies, the Nicki’s overnight bamboo fitted can snap down nice and small.  Caleb finally outgrew it around three months old (12-13 lbs), but it was a favorite of mine for when he was first born.

Function: Since the entire diaper is made out of absorbent bamboo, this is a great choice for heavy wetters.  You need to put a waterproof cover on top to keep clothes dry.  It also has an insert that snaps in for extra absorbency.

Favorites: This diaper is SO soft!  I also love the umbilical cord snap down in the front, so your baby can wear this diaper from day one.  The multi colored snap closure and edging is also a fun feature.

Newborn Cover

Fit: This cover can get very small, but also has the most room to grow because it includes rise snaps.  Caleb is five months old and still easily fits in these covers!

Function: The cover has lots of great features like the crossover snaps for tiny newborn waists, inner flaps to hold inserts in place,  and rise snaps to adjust the size to perfectly fit a small or large baby.  These are also perfect for covering the Nicki’s Newborn Overnight Bamboo Fitted diapers.  You can reuse the covers a few times as long as they aren’t soaked or soiled, so you get the most bang for your buck with these.

Favorites: I personally love the snap closure on these covers, but aplix closures are also available.  I also like how they fit so nice and trim under clothing (I used flour sack towels as inserts the first few months) and the double gussets for holding in any messes.  These covers are definitely my FAVORITES as far as newborn diapers go!

How does the newborn cover compare to Nicki’s One Size cover?  Here is a picture of both on the smallest settings.  You can see it is quite a bit smaller, and while the OS cover can fit newborns, the newborn cover is much less bulky under clothing and leaves no gaps for messes to escape.  🙂
