Why I Love Bottombumpers Side Snapping AIO

All-in-One (AIO) diaper come with a waterproof outer layer and an absorbent inner layer. It sometimes comes with extra piece of soaker to lay on, which can be separated for washing and drying. This already spells convenience at my fingertips, as far as laundry, and no insert stuffing is concerned.

Size M on the left, and size L on the right. Sanju fits both at their respective settings

Bottombumpers AIO is one such diaper with an absorbent certified organic cotton as the inner layer, and a snap on soaker of 4 layers of organic cotton, topped with bamboo velour for baby's skin contact. A whopping total of 6 absorbent layers for an AIO diaper is very generous indeed! To make it work better for night use, I have recently discovered that adding a bamboo doubler totalling the layers to 8 are sufficient to last the whole night for my kiddo.

Another special feature about the BB is that they are side snapping diapers, which means we can reduce the bulk of the front snaps. It is an advantage when putting on the diapers on an active toddler who moves and walks around more often during diaper changes.

The soakers are designed to be longer than the body, because as we put it on the baby, the elastics would stretch the body longer and hence covering the soaker sufficiently. Access front soaker length proves to be rather useful if you have a boy, who are front wetters.

My personal love for BB is the fact that the organic cotton soakers are indeed a jiffy to care for, and so far have showed no signs of molding or staining despite long use. If you kid ever poos in the diapers, you can easily knock it off in the toilet and wash off ther rest with water spray.

No doubt BB is my top favourite together with the Itti Bittis for the trim cutting. When I purchased my first BB of M size, I realise it managed to fit my chunky kid pretty well, and hey the side snapping feature gives it a unique and neat look!

thx mamas...

Hanz - the M looks quite small cutting oso, i think at the smallest size may fit our baby later right?

M size bottombumpers can last for quite a long time on baby. Am loving my bottombumpers too!! Thought of letting go my plain bottombumpers and keep only the embroidered bottombumpers.. Hehehe...

But the OS bottombumpers soaker is kind of short compared to the sized bottombumpers. Too short for my liking. The soaker size will fit better if you use the cd at smaller setting. It seems they can make the cd OS but they still need to do more improvement on the soaker so that it can fit well on small and large setting.

MH - i was surprised with the M fitting too.. its great, no?

They can perhaps make a foldable portion for the OS soaker... so that it can be folded in smaller settings, and will fit fine for Large settings

hi Qarezma, i bought 1 pcs of BB CD but i'm kinda upset with the result. The top soaker that intact with my baby's bum does not stay dry. After 1 hour of CD'ing, the soaker is very badly wet. Why is that so ? Am i doing anything wrong ?

QarezmaV said...

Hi Jenny, the top layer on the BB soaker is bamboo velour and it is not the stay dry type. it is gentle and safe to be in contact with baby's skin as it is of bamboo nature, unless yr baby has a sensitive skin.

Great review! I have a 2 1/2 year old who will begin potty training and these bottombumpers are sound fabulous! Can't wait to try them! :)
