Shortly after I started cloth diapering in 2008 I stumbled on bamboo fabrics and was mesmerized by the properties of bamboo. I purchased my first handful of fitted bamboo diapers after a few weeks of cloth diapering and they were soft to the touch and had good absorbency, but after a while they had more of a towel-like terry texture than the silky fabric when they first arrived. They were still absorbent and soft, but I remember wishing they had stayed as soft as day one.
The first thing I noticed as I held the Little Comfort Bambee diaper was its silky smooth texture and it was something I was excited for my little guy to have against his bottom. After all, when you wear a diaper for two or more years of your life, comfort and softness is a big deal! I think that the notable difference with this diaper is that it has a higher thread count and there is some polyester in the fabric blend designed to reduce drying time, which may also add to the silkiness. It is losing a little silkiness as it continues to get washed, but remains soft and smooth to the touch.
The inserts of this fitted diaper set-in for the size 1 setting and snap-in when using the size 2 setting, and you can customize the absorption using just the small, large or both inserts. The two inserts have a stay-dry fleece layer that can also be turned over and set in the diaper to have no fleece against baby’s skin if that is your preference. I like having the option of a stay dry lining in a fitted diaper, especially for naptime and overnight when they will be sitting in it for a longer period of time, but this diaper allows both options for parents.
The stretch allows me to get a good fit that still gives my toddler flexibility to bend and move and the absorbency has been good. The width of the crotch is trim, but still has plenty of coverage for my two-year-old and the elastic seems snug, yet flexible as he bend and runs about. I liked having the inserts snapped in to keep the diaper in one piece for washing, drying and to reduce shifting when putting the diaper on, so I will have to see if I like the diaper similarly when setting the inserts in the diaper with the new baby.
