I want to start out by saying that this is an unsolicited review. I purchased these diapers with my own money and am not being compensated in any way.
My little guy is getting bigger, so some of the cloth diapers I had in our stash are getting a little too short. I headed back to e-bay to seek out my next purchase. I was really pleased with the Rainbow BB cloth diapers I got earlier this summer, so I thought I’d look for the same or similar products. There are so many off brands out there at such low prices I always wonder what quality I’m getting. A few months back I purchased a Fuzzi Bunz second that I have really love. Mostly, I wanted it to compare to the ones I bought on e-bay since they are similar styles. While searching for the next great deal, I came across Babyland diapers. I mentioned them before, but I think I may have misspoke. The older photos in the Babyland listings made the diapers look cheap, but the newer updated photos really changed my mind. I ordered a set of 8 pocket diapers…mostly because of the cute prints. Here’s what I got:
Diaper Style: Pocket. I wanted to compare them to my Rainbow BB diapers. They are very similar in style. Fleece inners with a pocket for inserts. The elastic that I had problems with in the Rainbow BB appears to be better quality in the Babyland diaper, but time will tell!! The PUL of the new diaper is nice quality and the print fabric feels very soft, almost like flannel. I think it will wear very comfortably!!
The Interior: The Babyland fleece insides are plushy and soft and would rival a Fuzzi Bunz any day!! I was really surprised and happy with the quality of the interior lining!! From the picture, there’s a huge difference between the Rainbow BB and Babyland fleece, but keep in mind we’ve used the Rainbow BB all summer. That being said, I think the Babyland fleece is nicer than the other was to start! I still don’t have any stains in the diapers I have.
The pockets for both are very similar and I’ve been very happy with the Rainbow BB through out the summer. I’ve had almost no “blow-outs” and the absorbency of the inserts are fantastic. I usually double the inserts, and add a third for nap time. Yes, unlike some hard-core cloth diaper-ers, I do not have the time to change my kiddo every 90 minutes!!! The inserts do the trick and my guy has had no diaper rash that was cloth diaper-related (only diet related!).
Fit: These will easily fit my 14-month-old in rise and waist. Like the Rainbow BB diapers, the Babyland diapers offer rise adjustments with two sets of snaps down the front. UNLIKE the Rainbow BB diapers, I actually believe these would fit a average/large newborn! The elastic is more snug in both the leg and waist, BUT the selling point is that the front snaps have the ability to overlap for a good fit at the waist.
Look: These particular diapers were also sold in two prints, so I got ONE of the other just to see how they looked. Both are soft and comfy, not to mention cute! At the time there were only these two prints available, but I think right after I purchased, they started offering more! Figures! Babyland diapers are also available in a standard fare of solid colors as well, and at a slightly lower price than the prints.
Good: Price first and foremost, fit, adjustable snaps, fabric, PUL, insert absorbency
Not So Good: to get a good price they only came with one insert, you definitely need more inserts than one, possibly the elastic (we’ll see, I’ve had problems with other brands, but its and easy fix)
I would definitely recommend these diapers if you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to the name brands that are out there. Please feel free to ask me about anything I haven’t covered, and leave your comments! I’d love to hear what you think!!!
