bumgenius one size 3.0 pocket diaper review

The bumgenius one size 3.0 pocket diaper is the first diaper I ever purchased before baby K was born. I had read so many great things about this diaper. And I agree with most. This diaper makes up most of my cloth diaper stash.

It comes with 2 inserts. One large one that snaps down for different sizes. And one newborn/doubler insert. I used the newborn insert when she was tiny and it worked great. As for the larger one, I do not like the snap down feature. It just seems way to bulky. I honestly use a different insert when going out to keep her happy bottom from looking so huge. But at night, the larger snap insert works great. And since she has gotten older, I have to use both the large snap insert and the newborn/doubler for nighttime absorbency.

The hook and loop (Velcro) is okay. It doesn't stick as well as her Gro Baby diapers. But the laundry tabs work really well. And I have read that some other moms have had problems over time with their hook and loop (Velcro) wearing out. But so far, I've had no problems with mine.

The snap down feature is great! It's supposed to fit a baby from 8lbs-35lbs. And I really believe it's true. They do start out a little bulky on the little wee one's. But after they put on some weight it doesn't seem so bulky. Baby K is almost 9 months and about 21lbs. She is currently on the middle snaps.

Since this is a pocket diaper and it is either lined with suede cloth or fleece. Your baby's happy bottom stays fairly dry.

They recently came out with 4 new colors. My favorite is Zinnia.

Lastly, this diaper is one of the most reliable diapers I own. I rarely have any leaks!

  1. I love your blog. I'm glad you reviewed these since I was about to ask you what you thought of them anyway. Right now I'm thinking that I'll do 1/2 prefolds with covers and 1/2 other (thinking Bumgenius after a lot of reading).
