Glow Bug pocket style one size cloth diapers are awesome. They are effective, cute, and very affordable!
These truly are one size diapers. They have 4 rise settings instead of the typical 3, and they have 2 rows of waist snaps with crossover tabs to really allow them to get tiny. The photo on the left shows the diaper on the smallest setting, with the rise snaps and waist snaps snugged in tight. At this setting, you can get the diaper down to 10 inches around at the waist (about 12 inches when you stretch the elastic fully). The front would wrap around the baby’s back on this setting, but it works! The photo on the right shows the diaper on the largest setting. The waist is about 21 inches on this setting, and stretches to a full 24 inches around when you pull the elastic to the max. That’s a huge size variable!
Another really cool feature is the double leg gusset for an extra barrier of mess protection. The elastics used in this diaper are very stretchy but stay snug, and the fabric is very soft. No red compression marks from this diaper! The SlimDry fabric is ultra thin, making this a very trim fitting diaper.
The pocket opens at both ends for easy stuffing and unstuffing of the insert. The insert snaps in to keep it in place. You’ll see in the photo below that the insert is snapped in, but not tucked in the pocket yet. The diaper comes with 2 inserts so you can either use one or double up – they do not snap together though, so the second insert would not be secured in the same way as the first insert, but it seems to “stick” to the other insert so it stays put. I have left the insert snapped in when washing (cause I forgot to unsnap it, oops!) and when it came out of the wash, the insert was out of the pocket, but still attached to the diaper. So I honestly just leave it snapped in at all times and just tuck it in when it comes out of the dryer and gets put away. I’ll never lose this insert!
Also, you can see in the photo above that there is a waterproof flap that keeps wetness from seeping out the front of the diaper. What you can’t see in this photo is that there is also a waterproof flap in the back as well. This diaper means business!
Glow Bug diapers are sold in pre-designed packages of 12 for just $150. So you get 12 diapers and 24 inserts, plus, each package comes with a free coordinating wet bag! I have to be honest, there are actually cheaper options out there – I’ve seen them for about $8 per diaper, but those only come with one insert and the quality of materials and design is no where near as good as Glow Bug Diapers. These are truly excellent, and I highly recommend them.
