Product Review: Monkey Doodlez Micro and Bamboo AIO Cloth Diapers
I started my search for the ideal cloth diaper just after I had my first son. For us, an AIO (all-in-one) was the best choice to keep things simple for my hubby. I learned early that too many diapering steps would frustrate him and cause him to abandon ship.
Recently, I was introduced to Monkey Doodlez. This Canadian company offers parents three different kids of convenient diapering choices: AIO Bamboo($24) and Micro cloth diapers($23), Micro pocket diapers and swim diapers($20.75).
For our test Monkey Doodlez sent us a Bamboo AIO diaper. In order to make sure that we were able to test the product efficiently, I purchased another Bamboo diaper and 2 Micro cloth diapers from the company.
On arrival, I was very impressed with the quality of both diapers. Monkey Doodlez uses microfleece on the inside of their diapers for comfort. While the micro AIO is made 100% polyester, the bamboo AIO is a blend of Bamboo (33%) and polyester (67%) which offers silky softness matched with durability.
And unlike other diapers I've tried the Monkey Doodlez never smell or need to be washed twice even after a couple of days in the soaking bucket.My hubby and I have found that both diapers have a nice fit without the bulkiness that sometimes comes with cloth diapers.
They also feature a generous strip of Velcro that ensures a good, secure fit for babies of all sizes.
I believe that success with cloth diapering comes from having the right tools.
If you are going to cloth diaper always remember to:
Our little tester is 9 months old and weighs 22lbs. He fits perfectly into Monkey Doodlez Medium long diapers.
