Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One Cloth Diaper Review

Despite my love of all-in-twos and covers, I recently took the plunge into the world of all-in-ones with great success and happiness. As a frequent shopper of Nicki’s Diapers, I have had my eye on the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One cloth diapers for a while now. A few weeks ago, I decided to add two of the bamboo all-in-ones to my stash.

Price

Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One is affordably priced compared to many other brands of all-in-ones. The diaper currently retails for $17.95 at Nicki’s Diapers. I purchased mine on sale for $14.95. Nicki’s Diapers often runs sales on the Nicki’s Diapers Exclusives line of cloth diapers, so you rarely need to pay full price for the bamboo all-in-one.

Prints

I purchased two Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One cloth diapers, one in Dreamsicle (orange) and one in Candy Cane Chevron (red and white chevron). Nicki’s Diapers currently offers a rainbow of solid colors, chevrons, and houndstooth prints. Additionally, the insides of many of the diapers coordinate with the outside. For example, the Dreamsicle features an orange bamboo interior that coordinates with the orange exterior.

Closures

Because I prefer snaps, I purchased the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One with snap closures. However, a hook and look closure is also available on all colors and prints. For both closure types, the torso features three rows of three rise snaps that adjust the diaper to small, medium, and large rise settings. For the snap version, the all-in-one features two rows of ten waist snaps plus one row of cross-over snaps for the smallest waist fit possible.

Inserts

Similar to the interior of the Imagine One-Size Bamboo All-in-One, the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One features a snap-in soaker pad consisting of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. The interior of the diaper consists of a super-soft bamboo blend terry. The diaper also includes a flap on the interior of the back of the diaper that covers the soaker pad snaps. More importantly, the soaker pad remains attached to the diaper during laundering, making the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One a true all-in-one cloth diaper. Nothing annoys me more than a snap-in all-in-one diaper that comes apart in the wash!

Fit

At 28 pounds, my toddler daughter currently wears the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One on the medium rise setting. Nicki’s Diapers recommends 8 to 15 pounds for the small rise, 15 to 23 pounds for the medium rise, and 23 to 35+ pounds for the large size. However, my daughter is definitely more comfortable in the medium setting, although she can wear the large setting with some extra bulkiness on her belly. She is definitely a low-rider type of girl already! Additionally, because she still wears the all-in-one on the medium setting, I am confident that the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One will fit her well past potty training!

Around the waist, my daughter wears the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One on the second snap in on one side and the third snap in on the other, leaving five open snaps in the middle. At a little over two and a half years old, she still has plenty of room around the waist with this all-in-one. Again, I am confident that the entire diaper will last my toddler well past potty training.

The only feature of the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One that I do not love is the unencased leg elastics. Getting a proper leak-free fit means taking a little extra time to make sure the leg elastics roll under the insider of the diaper properly. Otherwise, some of the bamboo interior  remains exposed, causing wicking and leak issues. Instead of simply slapping the diaper on my daughter during diaper changes, I must take a few minutes to roll the unencased leg elastics properly. My daughter holds still pretty well for most of her changes, but the unencased leg elastic may pose some problems for more active babies and toddlers. I would prefer encased leg elastics on future versions of the all-in-one.

Overall, I have not had any major leak issues with the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One. The key is to roll the leg elastics under completely to avoid wicking.

Laundering

Because of the natural fibers in the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One, the diaper requires additional prep and longer dry times than similar diapers made from synthetic materials. First, the diaper requires a recommended three washes and dries before the initial use to prep the natural fibers. I do recommend washing and drying the bamboo all-in-one at least three times to achieve maximum absorbency. Otherwise, you will need to change the diaper more often at first.

The Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One also takes longer to dry than similar all-in-ones with synthetic soakers and interiors. I like to hang my diapers to air dry but have found that the bamboo interior of this all-in-one requires at least twelve hours in front of a fan to air dry completely. The bamboo then still feels slightly damp, so I usually toss the diaper in the dryer for a bit to zap any remaining moisture. In the dryer alone, the bamboo requires almost two hours. I typically allow the bamboo version to dry overnight and then toss the diaper in my next full load of laundry to get rid of the remaining wetness. If time is a consideration, the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One may not be the all-in-one for you.

Final Verdict

If you are searching for an all-in-one cloth diaper that offers natural fibers, I highly recommend the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One. At $17.95, the retail price is more affordable than many other brands of bamboo all-in-ones. Other positives of the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One include the rainbow of colors available, the availability of both snap and hook and loop closures, the bamboo-cotton soaker pads, and the extended fit for older toddlers. The only two negatives for me are the unencased leg elastics and the longer dry time due to the natural fibers. However, if you are a fan of bamboo cloth diapers, I highly recommend the Nicki’s Diapers One-Size Bamboo All-in-One!
