As I mentioned in one of my recent posts, the Kiwi Pie One Size Fitted Diaper is my favorite diaper for night-time. We only had one until today when I picked up a second one (in Toadstool print) from Diaper Junction that my mother in law had bought us. Look how cute!
So I thought it was time to review the Kiwi Pie.
(BTW, talking about Kiwi Pie is making me think about my Avocado Pie the other day…)
We’ve used a Kiwi Pie One Size Fitted Diaper every other night for a few weeks now. It’s in the Ooga Booga print -a popular print for cloth diapers, I’ve noticed.
The two rows of snaps on this diaper allow it to be adjusted from a small to large setting, making this a one-size-fits-most diaper. It’s designed to fit approximately 8 to 35 pounds. There’s elastic around the legs and across the back. My son is quite large for his age, but his legs aren’t super chunky. This diaper does not leave marks on his legs.
This diaper is extremely soft! The outside is made out of 100% cotton, and the inside is 75% bamboo and 25% spandex, so it has a nice little bit of stretch to it.
It comes with two inserts, that can be snapped together and laid inside the diaper to double the diaper’s absorbency. Bamboo is a fantastic fabric for cloth diapers. It’s 60% more absorbent than cotton, and can hold up to three times its weight in water. It’s also naturally antibacterial and a more sustainable crop to grow than cotton. Since it’s bamboo, it needs to be prepped before the first use by washing and drying it three to five times. This helps the diaper reach its full potential for absorbency.
Since it’s not a waterproof diaper, it has to be used with a diaper cover. Recently, I’ve started putting a fleece-covered microfiber insert in the diaper as well (see my tutorial here). The diaper’s absorbency was fine without it, but the microfiber just wicked moisture away from his skin a little better than the bamboo alone. The insert I add makes the diaper a little bulky, but that’s normal for nighttime cloth diapering. Mr. Stinky Pants has never had a leak in this diaper, and he’s worn this diaper for up to five hours overnight (without the additional insert). When he’s a little older, and peeing in greater concentration, I may have to adjust what inserts I’m using for more absorbency.
I have other bamboo diapers, but the Kiwi Pie is my favorite because it dries much quicker than the others.
And possibly the best thing about the Kiwi Pie One Size Fitted Diaper…
It’s made in the good ol’ USA!
