It’s been a while since our last cloth diaper review. I made myself a promise that I would get through my stash list and review all of the diapers I own. I own 17 Rumparooz, so they account for a good part of my stash.
I have to say that when I first started cloth diapering, one of the things that appealed was not necessarily the functionality of the diaper but the cute designs on them. After my initial diaper trial, my first purchase was the Kanga Care diaper by Rumparooz, and I got delighted every time I used it on my little one.
The first thing you notice right off the bat with these diapers before you even open the package up is how beautifully smooth the texture of the fabric on the outside is. Rumparooz uses 1000 thread count fabric on their diapers, unique. The second thing you notice on the outside is the adorable prints. They have the best designs, especially for the little boy diapers.
If you have a boy, you probably know that every single store carries tons of adorable stuff for girls and only a fraction of the cute fluff for boys, so it’s refreshing to see some cute boy stuff for a change! The Soar print (available here on Amazon) is to die for, and the Wander (also available on Amazon) is my older grandson’s favorite diaper-he asks me to put it on the newest baby every single time he sees it.
But it gets better. The inside of this diaper is cloud-soft, and it has double gussets, which keep all of the messes in. As you can tell, I love these! These are pocket diapers with stay dry no-pill micro chamois on the inside. The diapers come with two inserts that snap to one another, making the diaper super thirsty.
For the absorbency test, I used one cup of warm water and soaked the diaper. Right away, the water sank into the diaper, the stay-dry portion of the diaper was wet at first, and as the water moved its way down to the inserts, the top layer became less wet. As I pressed down on the diaper, a bit of the water came back up-I noticed that at this point, if your baby peed a cup of water (you would have to take him to the hospital. lol), compression leaks would happen.
Typically though, for regular, slow-building urine, I think the diaper would do just fine because it would soak up the liquid slowly. I LOVE this diaper. The double gussets hold everything in so well. I have never had a blow-out with this diaper. It is super stretchy and fantastic for tiny babies and large ones. I find myself reaching for it if they’re clean every single time.
