I like trim fitting diapers that fit easily under Stinky's blue jeans without being ultra bulky. I like diapers that have a similar fit to a disposable, without being disposable. That's hard to find!
I wish I'd found BubuBibi sooner!
BubuBibi diapers are super trim. They truly are a trim fit! They're cute. Don't you love the jeans look? It's like those blue jean Huggies a while back, only reusable! And they're absorbent, even though you'd never guess it by the thrimness of the bamboo inserts!
The blue jean diaper came with two inserts. It's a one size pocket, and most of the time one insert is plenty, even for Stinky. I do use the extra insert for overnight, but when I do this, I put one insert in the pocket and lay the other in the diaper. I could easily stuff both in the pocket, but I just don't.
The fit is good. There are cross-over tabs, which I love, and which I think I would need if Stinky were any smaller. He's right in between two snaps on his waist, and since the diaper is stretchy enough and doesn't leave marks, I choose the smaller size so that he's less likely to leak. This does cause a tiny bit of pulling on the bottom of the tabs, but not enough that it disrupts the function of the diaper!
The BubuBibi diapers are pretty trim though the crotch, too. I'd like them to be just a tad trimmer, but this is just a cloth diaper "issue," I think, not a BubuBibi issue.
Check out that Cheeto face! Here he is in action in his jean diaper! Stinky actually wore this diaper a couple weeks ago for the Race for the Cure. He was in it a looooong time...probably about 5 daytime hours...and had just started to leak a tiny bit around the legs. I think that's pretty absorbent!
I also received a soccer ball print diaper! I don't know if you can tell, but the tabs are different on this one. On the jean diaper, the snaps are in a triangle shape, so there's one down below that helps hold the wings in place. On the soccer ball diaper, they're just in a straight line. I really prefer the triangle snaps of the jean diaper!
This is also a pocket, but the pocket is at the front of the diaper and has a snap to hold in the insert. I tend to
just snap the insert and lay it in the diaper, although it is easy to stuff. I just think that since I have the option to lay it on top, and it's easier, that's what I do.
It's the same deal with the snaps, though...Stinky's in between sizes! Since the material is stretchy, I can pull them just a bit snug. Stinky doesn't mind, and the stretch of the fabric gives enough when he's crawling that he's still comfortable.
Hes not always in the mood for a photo shoot! He's got extra stuffing here for overnight, because the single insert in this diaper isn't enough for my heavy overnight wetter!
BubuBibi sent me a wetbag to review as well! I'm not in love with the print of the bag, but I do love the bag! On the day of the Race for the Cure, I was able to stuff 5 diapers in the bag with room to spare. Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture of the stuffed bag.
The bag was leak proof and held up really well! It's the same stretchy material as the diapers, and it works really well!
We were also sent disposable diaper liners. I have used them a few times and really like them, but haven't been able to for a few days because of a major diaper rash. I really enjoy using them, though! I hadn't even really given it a thought before.
Thank you, BubuBibi, for this awesome package! I'm really impressed with your diapers, particularly as a great way for lower income mamas to start a stash! At just $8-10 a diaper, they're much more affordable than many! You can purchase BubuBibi diapers and accessories, as well as products from several other brands, here!
