I love the inner lining of these diapers, made with OBV (organic bamboo velour). I've sampled this fabric before on some cloth wipes I've tried and was so excited to finally receive this fabric in a diaper. Even after many washes and dries, it stays so buttery soft. The whole diaper is lined with this velour, and a snap-in soaker pad is also constructed of the same. The great thing about bamboo, of course, is that it is even more absorbant than cotton, but does not add extra bulk to achieve this level of absorbancy.

I love that this diaper had a good amount of waist snaps (with cross-over capabilities) in cute, punchy colors (mine came in a vibrant orange color). The only downside I found to these snaps is that when the diaper is snapped to a larger size on a chubby tummy, the snaps that are undone can dig into the hipbone and leave a mark on your baby. I mentioned this to Shannon with the idea of adding hip snap covers (I know other brands sometimes offer these), and she said this is a great suggestion and will be looking into it. The digging in did not bother me for daytime and playtime, but for my side sleeper, I didn't ever have her wear this diaper for napping or bedtime for that reason. However, with a cover overtop, I have no doubt that this diaper would have the ability to just absorb and absorb and absorb, even all through the night. In addition to the waist snaps, and to allow for one-size fitting, there are also rise snaps to adjust to your baby's size, whether small, medium, or large.
