Awesome Blossom Cloth Diaper Review

The Basics of Awesome Blossom:

The Basics of the Diaper:
  • One size pocket diaper with snap closures
  • Claims to fit babies approximately  9lbs to 35lbs
  • Outer waterproof Cover/Shell with hidden PUL
  • 3 Snap Rise for S,M,L settings
  • Looks similar to other imported diapers
  • Stay-dry soft fleece inside which helps to wick moisture away
  • Elastic Waist for a snug fit
  • Comes with (1) 3 Ply Microfiber Terry Cloth Insert 
The Basics of the Model:
  • 16 lbs
  • 8 months old
  • 5 th percentile for weight
  • 10th percentile for height
  • SUPER CUTE, don't you think?
  • Very lean/skinny build

My Thoughts: 

This diaper fit my son very well. I have used a lot of imported diapers and this one seems to fit better than most. My son is approximately 16 lbs and fits on the end range of the smallest  rise setting. The diaper fit snugly around his thighs and waist and my son did not have any leaks in this diaper. Since I have a skinny baby, I like the cross over snaps allowing for a snug fit. 

The prints are awesome. I received the Blue Blubble Time Minky! It is super cute and soft! This diaper held up well after multiple washes. The pocket is big enough to "stuff" with multiple inserts for a heavy wetter. Overall, I liked this diaper a lot and tend to reach to it because of the cute print!

Some Observations:
  • To me, these diapers seem to run a little on the bigger side. I am not sure if my son would be able to use this diaper at 9lbs with his build (see above). He is currently 16 lbs and it is on the smallest setting. All babies are different, and some babies may fit perfectly well into this diaper at 9lbs. 
  • I would love to see some bamboo inserts for this diaper in addition to the microfiber inserts. 
  • I love the Awesome Blossom also has cute handmade Newborn Diapers and Cloth Trainers.

You can add this diaper or one like it to your stash for only $12.99 - $21.99. The diaper itself comes with 1 microfiber inserts. You can also add additional inserts for heavy wetters or overnight use for only $5.00.

  9. Crossover snaps are super helpful. I wish more manufacturers would allow for selection of insert type -- I have WAY too many mf inserts that we don't use (we prefer natural fibers most of the time)

  15. I like the amazing orange diaper. Or a handmade newborn fitted.

  16. I like that you can buy in bulk and save, but even individually $13 is reasonable for a pocket diaper. I'm a fan of the crossover snaps too. My girl's a skinny minnie, and crossover snaps are definitely handy.

  17. I'm impressed that they offer newborn diapers as well! I also agree that bamboo inserts would be a great addition.

  20. i love the blue bubble fabric! thats too bad they run on the big side my baby tends to be on the skinny side

    ReplyDelete
  21. My girl is on the bigger side with her chunky legs, she would have no problem fitting into these diapers!

  22. My LO is small too and most OS pockets didn't fit him until he was a few months old. That being said, I really do love the OS pockets now, but in the beginnning we just used prefolds.

  23. My babies are always on the larger side so these diapers being on the bigger side might be just what I need.

  24. The Blue Bubble is by far my fav!! Lovin the crossover snaps!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the print you reviewed. The blue bubble time is so cute! Besides, it's minky, and I have a weakness for minky diapers.

  26. Love the print and the elastic on the pocket to stuff

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have some chunky babies and I love that this diaper would probably fit mine from birth. I also like the prints.

  28. i love 'magnificent blue' color! and i appreciate the fit

  29. I like the Happy Green Flowers Print!

  30. I love how this diaper has a wider pocket then I'm used to seeing, it's sometimes really hard to stuff pocket diapers but that doesn't look like it would be an issue here.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wish it fit smaller babies too...My LO was 5 pounds, 12 ounces at birth, so I had to wait quite a while before my one-size diapers fit her.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great price for cloth diapers, especially if your on a tight budget. I'm also a sucker for cute prints and minky fabric. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. i agree that the prints are cute! my son is 25lbs at 7 months, so it sounds like this pocket might fit him nicely. thanks for your review!

  36. Awesome blossom has bright colors, which I love! I've got my eye on Amazing Orange. Pretty sure we will be using pocket diapers in our house..I'll add this one to the list of those I want to try..though for when LO (due 9/1) gets bigger, since they run large.
