Monkey Doodlez was kind enough to provide us with the opportunity to try a Bamboo Doodlez AIO with W. We received a Bamboo Doodlez in the Ocean Breeze color. We got a size medium based on W's weight. He is almost 20 pounds now and the medium's weight range is 14-28 pounds.
The second thing I noticed about the Bamboo Doodlez is the softness of the inner. According to the Monkey Doodlez website, the bamboo fibers are the reason for this as they are extremely soft and feel almost like silk. I can attest to the fact that this diaper has one of the softest inners in our stash. This is a diaper that I didn't mind having up against W's skin!
The microfleece in this diaper is made from blend of rayon made from bamboo and polyester which accounts for the softness and is supposed to be very durable. According to Monkey Doodlez the microfleece should not pill in the wash. We have not experienced any pilling and I will be interested in seeing how it holds up with more use in the future.
Since the Bamboo Doodlez is an AIO (all-in-one) the insert is sewn in. Inside this diaper is a layer of heavy weight cotton flannel and a multi layer cotton terry soaker pad. As with most AIOs, the dry time for this diaper was longer than a pocket but that is to be expected.
Monkey Doodlez Doodlez tape. The goal of Doodlez tape is to hold securely while still being soft to the touch and it definitely accomplishes that goal.
As you can see, there is extra hook and loop in case you need to overlap the tabs. We do not have that problem but it's nice to have just in case you need it to get a better fit! I also like the laundry tabs as they have stuck very well every time the diaper has been washed.
Overall, we got a wonderful fit with this diaper. I like the way it fit around W's legs and at his waist. There was no gaping at his waist in the back and the legs did not leave any marks on his thighs. These are issues we have suffered from with other diapers but the Monkey Doodlez passed in both of these areas!
This diaper has been a very good daytime diaper for us and is very easy to use since it is a hook and loop AIO. It will definitely be good if it still fits in the fall when W goes to his childcare provider. It is easy on and easy off. That is one of the major perks of a hook and loop AIO -- just as easy as a disposable!
We have not tried out this diaper overnight as I originally intended because we used it during a nap one day and had a leak. I blame some of that on user error though because normally W only takes a 30 minute nap so I don't worry too much about changing him before he goes to sleep. On the day he was wearing this diaper for his nap, he ended up sleeping for an hour and a half! I think we would have been fine if he'd been put in the Bamboo Doodlez right before his nap. I do plan on trying it again though and I still really like this diaper!
Overall, the Bamboo Doodlez Medium AIO is a diaper that works for us! It fits well and stays on securely. It is also very trim which is something I can really appreciate. Finding pants that fit when W is in cloth can be a challenge especially with his chunky belly.
I recommend you stop by the Monkey Doodlez website and take a look around! You can also find them on Facebook!
