ZiggleBaby is a family owned and operated Canadian manufacturer of cloth diapers that owns the ZiggleBaby and Ecobumz brands. I recently received a ZiggleBaby one-size cloth diaper in Bubble Gum Pink to review. As a huge fan of the Best Bottom all-in-two diapers, I was excited to try the similar style all-in-two diaper from ZiggleBaby.
Currently available in six bright bold colors, ZiggleBaby cloth diapers are a one-size diaper that fit babies of all shapes and sizes from 6 pounds to 45 pounds. In other words, ZiggleBaby diapers are a complete diapering system from birth through potty training. ZiggleBaby diapers are available in six colors: Tangerine Orange, Lemon Yellow, Sky Blue, Razzle Red, Majesty Purple, and Bubble Gum Pink. I received the Bubble Gum, which is a gorgeous pink. I would like to see the company offer a wider variety of colors in the future, but the current limited number does offer a good collection for the parent seeking to put together a basic stash.
The outside of a ZiggleBaby cloth diaper consists of a super soft, non-wicking fabric. Similar to the Ecobumz all-in-one diaper, the aplix of the ZiggleBaby one-size attaches to anywhere of the outside of the diaper, which means a perfect fit for each baby every time. Although I am not generally a fan of aplix closures, preferring snaps instead, I do like the way that the aplix on my ZiggleBaby works. With an active toddler, I can definitely get a great fit around her waist without having to worry about lining up the closures perfectly. However, because my daughter can remove her own clothes, I have to always put a onesie or pants over my ZiggleBaby to keep her from pulling the diaper off.
One of the features of my Best Bottom diapers that I love is that the inserts snap into the shells. In a similar fashion, the insert of the ZiggleBaby one-size sticks to the inside of the diaper via aplix “magic buttons.” The magic buttons also allow for smaller sizing of the actual diaper. Instead of torso snaps, the ZiggleBaby diaper can be sized down by folding down the top of the front. Just fold down the front of the diaper and attach to the insert with a magic button.
Although I like the concept behind the ZiggleBaby diaper, I do have some concerns about the magic buttons. So far, I have remember to remove the magic buttons before throwing my dirty ZiggleBaby in the laundry. However, should I forget one day, the buttons could be lost forever in the wash. Similarly, I am notorious for losing small parts. I can just see myself unattaching and losing the magic buttons forever. One improvement that I would suggest for the diaper is to adhere the magic buttons to the insert. The diaper could still function similarly but without the fear of losing the buttons.
Another feature that I like about the ZiggleBaby one-size all-in-two cloth diaper is the fluid proof leg gussets that contain all messes. I prefer a cover or diaper with a double leg gusset. The double leg gussets on the ZiggleBaby truly do contain messes and moisture. I have so far not had any problems with leaks from the legs of this diaper because of the double leg gussets. Furthermore, the material used on the ZiggleBaby leg gussets is soft but stretch, offering a perfect fit for the size and shape of each individual baby.
Final Verdict: Despite my concerns about the potential to loss the magic buttons, I generally like my new ZiggleBaby one-size all-in-two diaper. I am not completely sold on the aplix closure and would like to see a snap version as well because my daughter can easily and quickly unaffix the aplix. But, for a younger child or even a toddler not interested in undressing, the aplix works just fine. I also really like the double leg gussets, which are a must for diapers in my house. Additionally, I really like the design of the inserts of this diaper. All-in-twos are my favorite, and the new way in which the inserts stick to the inside of the ZiggleBaby cover is ingenious. If you are interested in trying a new type of all-in-two diaper, then I highly recommend the ZiggleBaby one-size all-in-two cloth diaper.
