The diaper has pocket openings on both ends that allows you to increase the diaper's absorbency by adding extra inserts (also called doublers). This also enables any extra stuffed-in doubler or insert to agitate itself out in the wash. (Note from Karen: in theory should but it might not depending on your machine and the contents of the particular washload. Even so, they wash quite well for an all-in-one style diaper.) Half of the soaker pad is attached, while the other half also comes out through one of the pocket openings during the washing cycle.
It is made with a waterproof outer layer and 10 layers of 100% cotton birdseye fabric in the wet zone and one side of the flap has stay-dry fabric.
The unique thing about this diaper is that it has an attached stay-dry microfleece layer on the soaker pad that will keep your baby's bottom dry. To use this feature, simply pull out the other half of the attached soaker pad and lay it over the body of the diaper.
If you prefer all natural fabrics touching your baby's skin, simply keep the unattached portion of the soaker pad tucked inside the pocket. This way the stay-dry part of the soaker is tucked inside and only cotton touches baby in the wet zone.
on a 13 pound 10 ounce baby. The fit is snug to the body. It doesn't sag and it is not poofy.
Look for matching Wet Bags
I honestly can’t believe how many 5 star reviews this diaper has! It’s my least favorite diaper that we own. We also have grovia and thirsties AIOs, and have never had leaks blow outs with those. However if baby poops with the blueberry AIO on it’s pretty much guaranteed to blow out around his legs! I have a pretty good idea of when he’ll poop throughout the day, so I only put this one on him when I’m not worried about it. Bummed that it didn’t work better for us, especially since it was so expensive.
I have mixed feelings about this diaper. The first one I got from green mountain diapers seemed pretty thin in absorbency… I was kind of taken back and wondered what all the fuss was about. A tear developed after its first initial wash, so I contacted blueberry and they sent me a new diaper which seemed superior in quality than the first one.. (?) The first diaper was made with what I would call “prefold fabric”. The second diaper had Birdseye cotton. So I do like the second diaper. (More absorbency) That being said, I do feel that it is pretty over-priced. It probably won’t fit my 20 pound 4 month old very much longer, as she has only one snap on each side left to grow into. I like the rolled leg elastics and I like that I can add absorbency. I will say that this diaper has never been enough absorbency for my daughter on its own. I do find myself reaching for it though, so..
Excellent organic diaper - no blow-outs yet! and we've struggled with many different diapers.
I love these! My baby is now 1, and we started these when she went to daycare at 6 months. They are the best. They never leak, rinse well with a sprayer, and haven't given me any issues like the Thirsties AIOs have. They fit her well, and she's 20lbs with a smaller waist but muscular legs. I had an issue with a snap once, and Blueberry customer service was fantastic.
We have moved to AIO for nighttime and this vs the thirsties (which we do like), is our favorite. It’s not too bulky and our LO stays dry all night. She is 10 lbs and 11 weeks old.
