Buns Up Baby sent me a minky one size cloth diaper for reviewing.

Buns Up Babypocket diapers are one-size and will fit babies approximately 8-35 pounds. Each diaper comes with a micro-terry insert. Most Buns Up Baby pocket diapers are priced around $9.99!(CAD)

Buns Up Baby also carries its own line of wet bags , diaper pail liners, and additional inserts in both micro-terry and bamboo.

This review is for the Beefy Buns print Minky pocket diaper.

These diapers have a large sizing range and can unsnap to fit a large toddler. Their most unique feature is a set of FOUR hip snaps on each side. Most cloth diapers with hip snaps only have two on each side which allows wing droop once the child outgrows the hip snap size.

The Buns Up Baby one size has two rows of rise snaps to adjust the length of the diaper. Each diaper has crossover tabs to size the waist down to tiny proportions for newborns.

The inside lining of the diaper shell is microsuede. The pocket opening is in the back f the diaper and has elastic on both the shell and the lining. I like the extra elastic in the back, since it keeps the insert from creeping up in the back.

I started using this diaper on my newborn when she was 8lbs 3oz. I will admit the diaper was pretty billowy on her. However, it fit fantastic in the waist with the crossover tabs. Although an extra row of rise snaps might have helped the legs fit better, the smallest rise setting did hit the right area on her waist.

The leg openings are still a bit large on her skinny newborn legs, but the diaper did not leak at all through several uses. I imagine the Buns Up Baby one size would fit better around 10 pounds like many other one size cloth diapers, but the loose legs did not affect the function.

I also used the Buns Up Baby cloth diaper on my 22 month old. At 25.5 pounds, my son still had plenty of room to grow in this diaper. Plus, it is a very wide diaper with a large pocket, so it was really easy to double stuff with more inserts for nap time.

My toddler is on the thin side, so the four hip snaps are very helpful in getting a secure fit with no shifting.

Overall, the Buns Up Baby cloth diaper is a really nice, basic pocket diaper. The minky shell is super soft and the microsuede lining didn’t stain at all. The elastic is very stretchy so I could easily fasten the diaper snugly without it being too tight. The stretchier elastic paired with the extra room in the butt area made this diaper practically leak proof. It felt very gentle and plush on both babies. I imagine it is a very comfortable diaper to wear!

I don’t have much experience with minky, but this diaper felt like a much higher quality than I would expect for the price. I would definitely recommend Buns Up Baby as a resource for bulking up your cloth diaper stash.
