Kawaii Baby One-Size Cloth Diaper Cover Review

Updated on July 6, 2015

Turning Back Time

When I think of the word “cloth” diapers I think back in time more than 2 decades ago when my mom was using those big old cloths that looked like cheese cloths on my sister, trying to pin them close without poking her. Since then, cloth diapers have come a long way.

Now, cloth diapers and diaper covers look like and are almost as easy to use as disposable diapers. So when I got pregnant I made up my mind to mainly use cloth diapers. And I did, as soon as my son’s belly button stump fell off.

The Kawaii Baby One-Size Cloth Diaper Covers make cloth diapering much easier. You can use them over prefolds, fitted, and contour diapers. They have three layers of snap buttons on the outside to re-size them to fit small, medium, and large sizes (approximately from 8 – 36 lbs.). They have a double-layer of water-resistant fabric that can be wiped clean and dry, which makes them reusable until they become soiled. They come in hook & loop (velcro) or snaps closure. The velcro tabs can be folded back to keep them from catching onto other clothes that may be washing at the same time. The legs are made of gentle latex-free elastic to avoid irritation and protect against leaks. They are made in China.

Pros

  • Using them is simple.
  • They are adjustable. You can adjust the length with the three rows of snap closures, and around the waist with the velcro or snaps.
  • They don’t leak. The elastic around the legs and on the back keep accidents from happening and they are waterproof, which means no leaks.
  • They can be washed in the washing machine. They don’t need special detergents or maintenance required; just rinse, wash, and dry.
  • They come in all sorts of prints and colors.

Cons

  • The elastic leaves marks on baby’s legs and back. However, cloth diapers are prone to leave marks on baby, but he is not irritated by them.

Overall:

I didn’t start using cloth diapers on my son until his belly button stump fell off, which was around 3 weeks. I started using the pre-fold diapers with these covers and they fit perfectly on him. However, he was born a big boy weighting 9 pounds, 12 ounces; so they may not fit as well on a smaller baby.

I have had one accident with these covers and the reason for that is because his diaper was not all the way tucked in on the right leg. Besides that, we have not had any blow-outs or leaks. I am very satisfied with these covers. I have tried both, the hoop & loop kind and the snaps and I like them both equally. They are definitely worth investing in. Not only are you being more environmentally friendly, but you will not have to buy disposables. Yes, they are a little more work because they have to be washed; and they are not as convenient when going out, but I feel it is worth it for me and my son. I am not sure if cloth diapers have anything to do with it, but my son has not had a diaper rash since he started wearing cloth diapers. He did get a diaper rash once while using disposables in the beginning.

Some people have mentioned that the elastic does not last very long. If you dry them after washing in the dryer at high heat, it may cause the elastic to wear off and become brittle. I recommend hanging them up to dry on a rack or clothes line, or drying at medium heat.

Other people say that the cloth diapers do not stay in place. I suggest using Snappis with your cloth diapers. They make it much easier to put them on and keep them in place. I will be making a review on Snappis next, if you would like to learn more on those.
