WeeHuggers Bamboo Diaper Review

Guest Author - Julie Renee Holland

All in one diapers are a one piece diaper that offers the most convenience in cloth diapering. WeeHuggers all in one diapers are made with super soft bamboo inside and bamboo jersey PUL outside. Weehuggers also makes diaper covers. Lisa, the WeeHugg founder (WeeHuggers.com), sent us a gorgeous all in one to review.

For some cloth diapering parents, the biggest concern is finding a daytime diaper that fits trimly but still does the job. The WeeHuggers all in one is one of the trimmest diapers I have seen.

I always have my little tester wear a diaper several times before I write a review so I can see how it performs under various conditions and how it holds up to washing. I am happy to report that the WeeHugger all in one holds up beautifully in the washer and dryer. This is the first diaper I have seen using the new bamboo PUL, so I was curious whether the PUL would wrinkle or separate in the wash. It has stayed smooth and waterproof despite my hot wash and hot dryer treatments.

WeeHuggers are advertised as a daytime diaper, so I also wanted to test how long the outer fabric would stay dry. Like any other natural fiber PUL (cotton prints, cotton knits, etc.) the outer fabric will wick moisture if the diaper is very wet. I first tried it for a 4 hour block of time that included a good long nap (yes, my little girl does nap from time to time!). As I expected, the outer part of the PUL did wick and was pretty damp after 4 hours. So, I tried it again with a Little for Now hemp diaper doubler. This time the outer part of the diaper stayed dry. When we used it for normal daytime use (no nap that day!) she stayed dry for over two hours.

The WeeHuggers diapers are designed with tiny mitten like Velcro-like closures that look like hugging hands around your child's waist. When I first saw them, I was worried that the two layers of hook and loop tape would come apart in the wash. After 6 washes they are still tightly sealed together. Most hook and loop diapers tend to roll in at the waist on my skinny little tester, but this one rolled less than most.

Drying time was surprisingly short for an all in one. The WeeHuggers are designed with a flap style soaker made from bamboo/organic cotton french terry. All of the fabrics are bleached with peroxide instead of chlorine, so they are environmentally friendly. Another bonus - the WeeHuggers are made in America.

If you are looking for a very trim, environmentally-friendly diaper, the WeeHuggers all in one is an economical and adorable option. They will work best for daytimes and frequent changing, but with a doubler they do last longer. I really like this diaper and it is fun to use.
