Review: Fitted Diaper - Drybees Bamboo Onesize


Material:
This is a OS fitted diaper. It's made of 2 layers of bamboo velour. Comes with one 2 layers lay in bamboo soaker/doubler for extra absorbency.
This fitted is very roomy and still able to add one piece of boaster.
Unfortunately, as for my case I find the elastic at the leg casing is not that stretchable and strong after many uses and washes. It becomes loose and therefore is not advisable to stuff too many boaster in it.

Lasting?:
Only good for a daytime diaper for heavywetter. It can last for 2 pees on my dd but bamboo draws liquid very fast and more than cotton. But since it only has 4 layers with the lay in doubler... it doesn't really can hold alot.

Wash & Care:
Wash in cold and this diaper retain smell stronger than the bamboo doubler. The diaper itself needs more rinse compare to the doubler. The reason could be bamboo is very good in absorbing fast and once it absorb it keep the urine in the diaper more than the doubler.

This is confirmed that bamboo takes longer to dry than cotton and hemp fitted because of its great and fast absorption of liquid.





PRO:-
1)It is Onesize, can use from young till potty train.
2)100% natural material (I won't say it is soft as the hemp & cotton fitted that I have is much more softer than this one)
3)The snap is great and easy to use

CON:-

1)Drying time longer than pocket diaper.
2)Not absorbent enough for night time use on heavywetter.
3)Lay in soaker/doubler will misplace if you have wriggle baby when putting on... personally I prefer snap-in soaker

All in all, it's a good daytime fitted diaper. Not very impressive for me or perhaps I shall try out other bamboo fitted in future.
Rating: 3 out of 5

I am enjoying myself reading your review on each type of diaper Sharine.. And still waiting for you to review the best diaper for heavy wetter baby. Have you find out what is the best CD for heavy wetter so far?

Babybeehind hemp fitted... I always thought it's gonna be BB Beehind bamboo fitted but up till today I haven't get any bamboo version from BB Beehind.

In fact... I have methods to increase absorbency on DB bamboo but the drawbacks is bulkiness... but it still works!

i have this type of diapers, but I feel that after we wear for few hours it will have smell, but it really can lasting for few hours, I let my bb wear it as night diapers, it not leak, I use the insert that come together with diaper, 1 big & 1 small for night use.

I also hope it can last on my girl but without additional insert or boaster... by using only its bamboo soaker only can last my girl for 2 hours. Worst case now is the leg gusset is never as snug as before and this is the only fitted that I encountered leak even I snap on the waist tightly! I wonder how to use on smaller baby then...
