Dimple Buns Fitted Review and Giveaway
XS Fits: Up to 13 pounds, 3 months
Small Fits: Up to 18 pounds, 6 months
Medium Fits: Up to 22 pounds, 12 months
Large Fits: Up to 26 pounds, 18 months
XLarge Fits: Could not find range
Price Per Fitted: ★★★★☆ Depending on the size, the price will change, but most are under $15. You can contact Dimple Buns if you want to order and she can give you the exact price for what you want.
Absorbency: ★★★☆☆ For day time use, this fitted was very absorbent and held up well. However, during naps, this diaper did not hold up to my daughter’s heavy wetting and we had frequent leaks. I think on a smaller child this fitted would be great, but it did not absorb enough on my heavy wetting toddler. I also think that my daughter would have been better in a larger size and that would have fixed the absorbency issues.
Fit: ★★★★☆ This diaper is constructed of very soft fabrics and is very comfy on baby. The back and legs have stretchy elastic that are able to hug baby to contain messes without digging into baby. This fitted does have side snaps, which traditionally, I do not like. However, these snaps are easy to use and there are enough snaps to create a good fit without having too many snaps that overwhelm you. This fitted is very trim and will fit under any cover.
Ease of Use: ★★★★☆ I don’t love side snaps. But that is a personal preference. Other than that, this diaper is quite easy to use.
Washing: ★★★★☆ This diaper washes very well. We have used this diaper many times even while my daughter has been sick with diarrhea. This diaper has not stained at all. However, I am a little saddened by the fabric. Due to this diaper being made of cotton fleece inner and flannel outer, the diaper does show wear and the fabric is pilling. This does not affect the function of the diaper at all, but it is sad when the diaper looks so worn so fast.
Overall Performance: ★★★★☆ This diaper did not absorb as much as I had hoped. I do think that my daughter may have possibly fit a larger size better and that may have helped on many fronts. I love many features of the diaper, it is made of very soft/comfy fabric for baby and it is adorable.
Total Stars: 23/30
