Drybees Gone Natural bamboo diapers have been eagerly awaited. The just arrived and they are
causing quite a flurry of activity! These soft, bamboo velour diapers are available in two sizes. The small size is supposed to fit 5-15 pounds and the larger size is supposed to fit 12-36 pounds. Our little tester tried a size 2 (larger size) Drybees Gone Natural. I think this diaper would have easily fit her at about 8 pounds.
She is 12 pounds now and is wearing it on the medium rise setting with plenty of room to grow. The smaller size 1 bamboo diapers should fit well on a newborn of almost any size. They are definitely small enough to use on a 4-5 pound premie through about 12-15 pounds. I would have moved Eva up to a size 2 well before 15 pounds though, as the rise is just not long enough for her on the size 1 diaper.
The Drybees Gone Natural is the next generation of Drybees adjustable bamboo diapers and I much prefer it to the original. The first Drybees one size was soft and absorbent, but was too bulky for a little baby and the lay in soaker was too much trouble to keep track of. The new bamboo diapers have a trimmer fit and two attached soakers for fast drying time.
The inner soaker snaps in and is covered by the bamboo velour topped sewn-in top soaker. The whole diaper is made with an unbleached bamboo velour outer fabric and super-absorbent bamboo fleece inner layer. This is a very absorbent diaper!
These diapers are serged in a nice rainbow thread, so they add a bit of color while still maintaining the natural look and feel of bamboo.
