A bit bulky.
I have a few swaddlebee and blueberry diapers and while they are very well made, cute, and use decent fabrics they are significantly wider and poofier than some other major brands that we use. I know that with cloth, bulk comes with the territory. No cloth diaper is as thin and trim a sposie but this is probably the bulkiest that we own.Also I’m not really a big fan of the birdseye fabric in this one. It’s pretty rough even after washing and using vinegar to soften. Just the nature of that fabric I guess? I definitely prefer velour or bamboo fleece.I do like that the insert can come out for washing and drying, and can also lay across the top part so there is stay dry fleece against baby’s bum instead of rough birdseye (they probably have an illustration explaining this better than I can).Definitely not the first diaper I reach for, but not the last either.
Not impressed with quality
This diaper has a great design and cute prints, but I think the quality is inferior to Grovia and Bumgenius. A minor issue is that the PUL doesn’t feel as nice and quality (which it should for such and expensive product). I also wish it were more stretchy. The MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR issue is that the rise snaps kept popping open. My son was between the small and middle settings, so when the rise opened up while he was wearing it I could see clear through the crotch of the diaper. This demonstrates very poor quality control and I have heard of others encountering similar issues. I also found the snaps small and hard to fasten compared to Grovia, Bumgenius, Thirsties, Best Bottom etc. Hopefully in the future Blueberry will resolve these issues!
I used to LOVE these diapers….
I still like the diapers, and they worked perfectly for the first year, but now my daughter leaks with them constantly (not up the front or back or sides, but through the outside barrier. When my daughter was younger, she didn’t pee as much, so obviously leaking was not an issue. Now that she is older, 17 months old, the cotton is much much thinner than it used to be. The cotton in a new blueberry diaper is much much thicker than it is now…I realize that they are going thin out with time, but I didn’t realize it would be this bad. Plus, my daughter is a heavy wetter. I still love these diapers, but I have to use an insert or she will leak. These would work fine for a heavy wetter if they were new (up to a year of use- depending on how big your stash is, my stash is only about 30 diapers), but don’t expect to use them for two children without using inserts. They just wont last that long. Plus, the cotton doesn’t keep the wetness away from baby, which may cause rashes.
cute & absorbant
I love swaddlebees! I started out with the swaddlebee’s newborn AIO’s and they quickly became one of my favorite diapers. They fit amazing, come in lots of cute prints, they are so absorbent and most of all they don’t leak!Swaddlebee’s makes up a lot of my stash.
Great but bulky
I really like this diaper and how well it held the wetness and kept my son dry. My only complaint is that it is quite bulky. Other than that, no problems. Recommend.
this particular version of swadlebees is the only one that has prevented leaks for us. easy and soft against baby’s skin — i love them!
Love This Diaper!
This is one of my favorite diapers in my stash. The print is adorable, but I’m mostly blown away by the quality of the diaper and how well it fits my son. I’m seriously trying to restrain myself from buying a ridiculous amount of these diapers since I already have a decent sized cloth diaper stash!
Good diaper, a little confusing
My wife and I are using cloth diapers with our firstborn he is currently 3 months old. This diaper compares pretty well to the others we have tried. I like that it has a fleece lining built in to keep the baby dryer. I also find the cotton soaker–in place of they synthetic microfiber option–to be unusual and neat. It seems to have a large urine capacity and to fit well. Additionally, it has a "pocket" of sorts that allows you to put in extra soaker pads. The only thing that keeps this diaper from getting five stars is the lack of good documentation, either on the website or on the package. The diaper has a cotton pocket, and then long cotton soaker that is attached at one end to the diaper. This soaker comes tucked into the pocket and some of the literature on the diaper suggests that you are supposed to leave the soaker in this configuration. This doesn’t really make sense though, because the soaker is part that bears the "wicking fleece lining" that protects your baby’s bottom. If you pull the soaker out and line the inside of the diaper with the fleece side, everything just doesn’t seem quite right to me. The soaker is a bit too long and the fleece doesn’t immediately start at the front, pee-catching end of the diaper, where you would think the fleece would be most important. Don’t get me wrong, it works well, it just seems like I’m missing something but I have not been able to find pictures of instructions anywhere online. Some of the other diapers we have tried came with much more helpful instructions. I will update my review when my son begins taking solid food and the diaper experience gets more unpleasant.
