Cloth diaper fans overwhelmingly select the BumGenius One-Size cloth diaper as their preferred choice. These cloth diapers feature a patent-pending snap system to adjust the size of the diaper to fit babies between 8 and 35 pounds. A pouch accommodates inserts to absorb wetness; the newborn insert can be used alone to reduce bulkiness for new babies, and later it can be added to the standard liner for extra leak protection. Even though the price seems high at $20 each, the adjustable size makes it possible to use the same diapers longer and purchase fewer diapers overall. BumGenius One-Size cloth diapers now feature snap closures, avoiding the hassle of worn-out Velcro. FuzziBunz One-Size cloth diapers are similar in design, but offer elastic leg bands to help keep leaks in.
