The Best One Sized Cloth Diaper for a Newborn

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

One sized cloth diapers are great but they usually don’t start fitting well until your baby is at least 12lbs.

This creates a dilemma for new parents:  Buy newborn cloth diapers or use disposables until baby fits into one-sized diapers.

I am elated to have found a solution to this dilemma!

Peachy Baby cloth diapers is a brand new line launched by successful owners of Anne Marie Padorie cloth diapers.  Peachy Baby is and All-in-Two system proudly made in Canada.

The system consists of a waterproof shell and bamboo inserts.  The shell has serging all around, 3 rise settings, crossover snap and a soft microfleece inner.  The inserts are bamboo and are available in small or large sizes (sold as a 2pk).

Peachy Baby diapers are designed to fit babies starting at 6lbs and ranging up to 40lbs.

The placement of the rise snaps allows for a greater adjustment for newborns. The newborn rise is 10 1/2″ and the largest setting is 17 1/2″.

FIT:  Finley was born 8lbs 2oz.  Peachy Baby surprised me when I tried it on him.  I did not expect to find a one-sized diaper that fit a newborn and that wasn’t bulky.  The design of the shell combined with the bamboo inserts allows for a very trim fit on a small baby.

Camden hasn’t had the privilege of wearing the Peachy Baby diapers because I hoard them for Finley.  I went in as he was going to bed last night and told him he had to model it for me.

The best part about Peachy Baby on a newborn isn’t the trimness.  It’s how beautifully it wraps around my baby providing full coverage at all areas.

What is the one thing every new parent wants to avoid with any diaper (cloth or disposable)?  Blowouts and leaks.  Peachy Baby totally has this covered.  Elastic in the back AND front plus the very gentle serging and elastic at the legs ensures that no runny poo is getting out!

With the crossover wing snap and infant rise setting I am able to get a snug fit on Finley.

Oh, and guess what? No red marks on those precious baby legs!

SOAKER: Peachy Baby soakers are made of 70% bamboo/30 % cotton and come in small and large sizes.  The small can be used by itself for a newborn or combined with the large for heavier wetters or longer periods of wear time.

ABSORBENCY: This is my slam dunk nighttime solution for Finley and has been since he was born.  I wish I had more than 2!

When I put a Peachy Baby diaper with both the small and large inserts on Finley for night I rest easy knowing I won’t have wet sheets in the morning. 

I don’t change babies at night so finding a diaper that will absorb and contain is crucial! 

peachyfit

VALUE: Shell retails for $18, 2pk of inserts for $10. With the size range of Peachy Baby this is a great value.  Investing in them from the beginning could mean years of use.  Peachy Baby is a choice system for cloth diapering an infant and a toddler.

WHERE TO BUY: In Canada you can purchase from PeachyBaby.ca or AbbySprouts.com and in the US from itsybitsybums.com.  More and more stores will be added to the retailer list as the word of this great line spreads.

    My currents babes in diapers are 2yo @ 28lbs and 11.5mo @ 19lbs. IF we were to have another, I would NOT use disposables!!! I didn’t start cding until my youngest was already 6 months and am STILL kicking myself that I hadn’t been doing so all along (she is my FIFTH child).

    5lbs 15oz at birth and is now 7 weeks and according to our bathroom scale, 8.8 lbs. Most one size diapers are too big though we do use BG 3.0 leftover from my 4 yr old. I’ve tried Grovia OS and Flip and both are HUGE on him.

    My Fav diaper http://www.chelory.com now has a newborn too but it’s not one size. Now my first was 9 lbs 3ozs at birth. She was also only 19.5 inches long so a chunky monkey for sure. I expect my next will have no trouble fitting in O/S diapers from the start as well so I guess having smaller ones isn’t a huge need around here but if I do get graced witha small baby I’ll keep these in mind for sure.

    My 2nd baby (1st cloth diapered baby) was 12 lbs 8 oz at birth! It was a little shocking to have a baby that big. He didn’t even fit into newborn disposable diapers! Too bad I hadn’t even considered cloth then! By the time he was 3 months old and going through loads of size 3 disposables, I started using cloth and have loved it ever since. I am now pregnant with #3, due in October and hoping to have a baby under 10 lbs, lol (my first was a reasonable 7 lbs 10 oz). So I’m looking for some one size options that will fit from birth, whatever the size of the baby. My big guy is 27 lbs at 16 months and always 99th percentile for height, getting quite tall and slim!

    We cloth diapered from the very start. We used lil joeys and prefolds and covers in the beginning, but it didn’t take too long till he was able to wear the OS…he grew SUPER fast! By 3 months he was almost 18 lbs!!! Thankfully his growing has planed out now :)
    I love Cloth diapering!!!

    Great review-I’m sold! My 11 mo old was born @ 7lbs 9 oz and we stated CD at 6 wks with prefolds and Grovia aio for newborn. It’s good to know of another trusted AIO. I can always rely on my prefolds but I like the ease of pulling out my AIO. No leaky gussets is a huge selling point for me!

    My little guy weighed in at 7lbs 14oz at birth. I would have lived to cloth diaper from birth but couldn’t afford the investment. He is now 18lbs at 7 months and just started fitting nicely into most of his one size diapers. I definitely want to cloth diaper from birth with our next baby!

      I have a 27 lb 6 month old. I am sadly having to switch back to disposable because of the trouble I am having: 1. He fills up the front so fast that my diapers aren’t able to keep up and he leaks after 30 min of wearing them. 2. He has very very sensitive skin. He was getting horrible yeast infections from wearing them. Even if I changed him every hour to an hour and a half. Any suggestions?
