Babykicks 3g Review

Babykicks has released a newer and improved version of their Bumboo Pocket diaper, now called the 3g.  This diaper shares most of the features with the Bumboo (front stuffing pocket, bamboo fleece lining, fleece gussets, multi-colored coordinating snaps) but has an improved sizing and comes in colors as well.  The insert is still hemp, but has been improved to better fit the 3g.  Babykicks has a few fun videos you might enjoy viewing as well: Babykicks Youtube Channel.  You can also view my previous review of the first version of the Bumboo. I am also hosting a giveaway which end on Jan 10.  Go enter!

Ease of Use ✩✩✩ Since the 3g is still a side snapping diaper, and the diaper itself it still more difficult to stuff than most pockets, I gave it a 3 star.  To adjust the size isn’t that hard (unless you are using the newborn setting, this one takes some practice).  Snapping the side snap first is the easiest way to put on this diaper.

Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩ The 3g is still 18.50, right at the same price point as many other one size diapers.  Plus you get a thirsty hemp insert that is great for overnights.  The fleece is bamboo, another more luxe feature compared to most OS pockets.

Performance ✩✩✩✩ This diaper is very absorbent on both kids.  I preferred using it for my youngest.  On the 3g I didn’t have any leaks on either kid, and the gussets performed wonderfully.

Fit ✩✩✩✩ The fit is improved on this diaper compared to the Bumboo.  This is partially because the insert is shaped to fit the diaper better, and the new contoured front.  Plus, the snaps on waist and rise have been adjusted to fit larger babies.  I found it extremely trim on my youngest son even with the rise snapped down. It looked great on him.  Same for my toddler, but with a different look since it was unsnapped more.

Overall- I like the new 3g more than the previous version.  Now that the diaper comes in colors, including the exclusive chocolate versions carried by Kelly’s Closet, you can get more than just the white with multi colored snaps.  I still think the fleece gussets are the best feature of the diaper.
