Ease of Use: 9/10
We had been wanting to try a fitted diaper for awhile but were always put off by the price. Imagine Baby Products offers a one size fitted diaper for the same price other companies charge for a sized fitted so I jumped at the opportunity to try one.
The Imagine Baby Products one size bamboo fitted diaper is meant to fit babies from 8-35 pounds. Pumpkin hovers around the 15 pound mark and this diaper is fairly large on him. I can’t picture this fitting a baby under 10-12 pounds but I can imagine it fitting past 35 pounds. Even though this diaper seems to run large, you shouldn’t have a problem using it from a few months in until potty training. These use a snap in soaker pad too so you can customize absorbency based on your baby.
These are a decent quality diaper- everything is sewn properly and the snap placement is symmetrical. The only complaint I have about the quality is that this fabric tends to fray along the edges after a few washes. This is just inherent to the fabric but it annoys me when the edges aren’t perfectly smooth and there’s little stringies hanging off.
With the soaker pad snapped in, these are so bulky on Pumpkin. Bulky to the point that it’s hard for us to fit a cover over and hard for him to crawl around. We’ve started using these without the snap in pad and that helps a ton. There is still enough absorbency that we don’t experience leaks, without all the bulk. I’m sure we will snap the pad back in once Pumpkin is larger. And because this diaper seems to run large, there is a lot of extra fabric when used without the insert and the diaper has a tendency to droop. I’m sure this will fit great once pumpkin is a little larger but for now the fit is awkward.
Ease of Use:
The Imagine Baby Company fitted diaper is so much easier to use than a prefold or snapless fitted. Just snap the fitted diaper onto your baby and put a cover over it. There is no folding or snappi required. The elastic is also nice and stretchy, making these a breeze to put on baby. The snap in soaker pad also allows this diaper to be easily washed and dried. The one thing I dislike about fitted diapers, and especially ones with snaps, is that each time we change Pumpkin the snap area is soaked and we can’t avoid getting pee on our hands when undoing the snaps. This is an issue that has caused my husband to hate fitted diapers but maybe there is a trick to it we still need to learn.
At $16.95 each, you would need to use this diaper almost 68 times before it becomes cheaper than disposables. Since this is a one size diaper that can provide years of use, you shouldn’t have a problem using it so much it pays for itself.
Honestly these are some of the cutest diapers meant to be hidden by a cover I have ever seen. Normally diapers meant to be worn under a cover are white or unbleached; Imagine Baby Products fitted diapers come in a variety of pastel shades that look absolutely darling. It’s hard to tell in our pictures but the one we have for Pumpkin is an adorable minty green.
While I was dying to try a fitted diaper, and do like Imagine Baby Products fitted, it is not the first diaper I reach for. Now that we have tried numerous fitted diapers I have come to the realization that we would rather have a snapless design and would rather have a trim, sized fit. Bottom line: No, I would not buy this again. This is not a bad fitted diaper but because Pumpkin is such a small kiddo the fit isn’t great and I’m just not a huge fan of the fabric.
