    Lalabye Baby One-Size Cloth Diaper Review

    Lalabye Baby One-Size Cloth Diaper Review

    Although I originally loved all-in-two diapers on my daughter, I know find that I prefer all-in-one diapers on my son. While doing some Black Friday shopping last year, I saw the gorgeous limited edition Happy Laladays diaper from Lalabye Baby. Having never tried the brand, I purchased one to test and review on my daughter and son. I immediately grew to like the all-in-one/all-in-two/pocket diaper.

    Price

    Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diapers currently retail for $19.95 or $20.50 depending on the snaps. Colors with matching snaps cost $19.95, and colors with different colored contrasting snaps cost $20.50. Each diaper comes with two bamboo inserts, one small and one large. Extra insert sets retail for $8.50. For an all-in-one or all-in-two with inserts, I consider the Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper reasonably priced.

    Colors

    Lalabye Baby offers dozens of gorgeous colors of prints. I purchased a Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper in the limited edition Happy Laladays, which is green with red and rainbow snaps. Unlike many other brands of cloth diapers, Lalabye Baby frequently changes the colors offered and frequently releases limited edition colors and prints. If you want to collect every diaper from the brand, then Lalabye Baby is probably not the cloth diaper for you. However, if you simple want a great diaper available in a wide variety of color options, then you are sure to find a Lalabye Baby to fit your taste and style.

    Design

    Recommended for babies between 8 and 35+ pounds, Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diapers are made of stretchy TPU that is waterproof and provides a trim, snug fit. The interior of the diaper features micro-suede, which is a stay-dry fabric that protects delicate skin from wetness. A waterproof belly band/insert stopper prevents leaks at the tummy, making the diaper perfect for tummy sleepers. Wide slot openings on both ends of the diaper make stuffing in inserts easier and allows the inserts to agitate out in the wash.

    Closures

    I almost exclusively use snap closures within my cloth diaper stash. Perfect for me, Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diapers comes only in snaps. The torso features four rows of two snaps that allow the diaper to adjust between small, medium, large, and extra large rise settings. The waist features two rows of ten snaps with two snaps on the top of the hip flap and one snap on the bottom. One side of the hip flap also includes one row of two cross-over snaps for an even snugger small fit. Rainbow color waist snaps on many of the diapers facilitate quick and easy diaper changes every time, making Lalabye Baby perfect for caretakers and grandparents.

    Inserts

    Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diapers come bundled with two snap-in style inserts: a small insert for newborns and a one-size insert for older babies. Combined with the one-size insert, the newborn insert works as an overnight booster or as extra absorbency for heavy wetters. I personally use both together for extra protection and absorbency. The inserts snap into the front or back of the diaper as well as two each other, allowing for an impressive range of customization. Snap the inserts in at both ends to create an all-in-two, or snap the inserts together at one end to create an all-in-one. Use the diaper with the inserts stuffed in the pocket or laid on top of the micro-suede interior. Lalabye Baby offers a diapers that meets so many different preferences and needs!

    Lalabye Baby inserts consists of four layers of rayon from bamboo. Bamboo is very absorbent without extra bulkiness. Lalabye Baby bamboo is made without fertilizers or pesticides and is naturally antibacterial, eliminating most ammonia smells. Bamboo is also anti-allergic, very soft to the touch, and breathable — perfect for sensitive skin! Because of the high absorbency of the bamboo inserts, I am able to use my Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper on my son overnight for up to nine hours.

    Laundering

    I am generally not a fan of pocket diapers because of the need to stuff and unstuff inserts. Most of the remaining pocket diapers in my stash function as covers with an insert laid on top. However, the versatility of the Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper fits my laundering preferences. First, I can use the diaper with the inserts laid on top of the micro-suede interior, meaning that I do not have to stuff any pockets. Second, when I do chose to stuff the inserts into the pocket, the inserts agitate out in the wash — even when snapped onto the diaper! I personally appreciate that the inserts generally remained snapped to the cover, making putting away the clean diaper even easier.

    Because I am lazy in the laundry room, any new diapers that I purchase for my stash must fit into my current wash routine. Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diapers fit right in! Between washes, I store the dirty diaper in a pail liner with the rest of my dirty fluff. I do not unstuff the inserts. On wash day, I wash all my diapers in warm water with detergent and OxiClean followed by two cold rinses. I then allow the diaper cover to air dry on a drying rack in front of a fan and toss the inserts in the dryer. The bamboo does take a little longer to dry compared with microfiber, but 12 hours on my drying rack or about an hour in the dryer generally suffices. I thus rate Lalabye Baby extremely highly in terms of laundering a pocket diaper.

    Performance

    My Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper works on both my infant son and my preschooler daughter. I first used the diaper on my son at nine weeks old and approximately 11 pounds. He wore the diaper on the small rise setting and the smallest waist setting without the use of the cross-over snaps. Because of the cross-over snaps, he could have worn the diaper at an even smaller weight. By four months and 15 pounds, my son wore the diaper on the medium rise setting and still the smallest waist setting. My 28-pound preschooler wears the diaper on the large rise setting with two sets of waist snaps exposed. I therefore agree with the 8 to 35+ pound recommended weight range.

    Because of the bamboo inserts, I am able to use my Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper on my son overnight for up to nine hours. I generally stuff the inserts inside the pocket so that the micro-suede interior rests against my son, which helps prevent rashes by wicking moisture away from him skin. I can also use the diaper on my daughter up to 12 hours overnight by adding an extra insert in the pocket.

    During the day, both my children can wear the Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper for approximately four hours. My daughter generally goes a little longer between diaper changes because she has no problems with moisture against her skin. My son generally needs changed a little soon because he dislikes a wet diaper. However, that I can use the diaper on both my infant and my preschooler attests to the versatility of Lalabye Baby.

    Final Verdict

    If you are shopping for a versatile cloth diaper that converts between pocket, all-in-one, and all-in-two, I recommend the Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper. Recommended for babies between 8 and 35+ pounds, the diaper fits both my infant and my preschooler with plenty of room left to grow. The snap-in bamboo inserts are extremely absorbent and customizable, allowing for the perfect fit for any baby. Laundering the diaper is a breeze because the inserts agitate out of the pocket in the washer — even when left snapped to the cover. I rate the Lalabye Baby one-size cloth diaper very highly.
