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.

    I don’t have a baby yet but I am due in July. I just started researching doing cloth diapers since it is so much cheaper and better overall for your child. I was not going to start with cloth diapers due to the umbilical cord still being there but this diaper looks interesting.

    I used disposables on my daughter because I simply wasn’t educated on cloth. I was curious, but didn’t know how people really did it… until I started reading about it after she was potty trained and got hooked. We’re TTC #2 right now and will cloth from the start! Our daughter is currently potty trained and sometimes has accidents at night, so we use cloth overnight… I use Super Undies pockets and Best Bottoms.

We didn’t start cloth diapering until he was about 12 weeks old (I had been experiencing a lot of bad diaper rashes with him, and a friend sent me a starter pack of cloth to test out). 10 months later and we’re hooked on cloth…. definitely plan on starting from birth with the next little monkey!

    I wish my baby was a few months younger, not older than your baby; you have given such great information for newborns. Our little peanut was only 5lbs when he was born and we just couldn’t find a diaper that would fit him. Even now at 10 lbs 6oz he still doesn’t fit well in a lot of the one size diapers. I will definitely be buying one of these to see how they fit our trim little guy.

    My baby boy is now 1 year old and is still tiny. He weighs about 18 pounds now and is trim. I don’t worry too much about his weight though since his father was the same way as a baby and all of my children have been small compared to others. He weighed 7 lbs at birth but wore preemie sized diapers and clothing since he couldn’t fit newborn sizes. I usually only make diapers and have yet to buy one since my mom makes them also (sewing is her hobby so it gives her an excuse to sew). It would be nice to hae a store brand one and see the difference in quality. I hae another baby on the way and he feels like a 7 pounder! I am making diapers for him now and this time I am preparing with newborn and preemie sizes! So excited! I would like to win a diaper though so I can hae some excuse to buy something other than fabric on sale. I love to shop!!! Maybe that is why I cloth so I can use my saved money for shopping lol. Not really, since I have 3 kiddos and 1 on the way, I guess its more kid shopping and mani and pedi for me (plus those cool new cleaning gadgets that come out, I love a clean house)! Plus my husband saves more money for groceries which means more man food for him and workout supplies. Ok I am done rambling on about things. Love this post!

    We had our first baby in November. He was 8# 2oz & is a really long baby (22.25″ @ birth). He’s already in 6-9mo clothes! We started using Rumparooz when he was a month old & are really happy on the savings of cloth diapering & eliminating so much waste. We haven’t tried any other type of diaper yet but these look cute!

    My son was 9lbs 2oz at birth and grew crazy fast after that, so newborn diapers pretty much never fit well for us. On the other hand, it did take a couple of months (and a few pounds) for any one-size to fit snugly and not leak. We basically filled the gap with prefolds and covers. I’m super excited to try Peachy Baby for #2; it would still fit my big 2 year old at 36lbs! Definitely worth the money!

    My daughter was 6lbs and did not fit in her OS well until she was 5-6 months. It wasn’t so much the weight that we had an issue with but mostly the rise since she was only 17inches at birth. Even now as we are getting ready to potting train her, she is still not on the highest rise.

    We are expecting baby number 2 and def. want to CD from the start.
