ever hear of rocky mountain one-size diapers? i hadn't, until i received a free one as part of a black friday promotion through banana peels diapers, my local cloth diapering store. i wasn't expecting much from a free diaper, but i have to admit, i'm kinda in love. i'm a real fan of one-size diapers since they don't need to be replaced as baby grows. i don't generally adore the look of the extra snaps that make one-size diapers so adjustable, but hey, sometimes functionality has to trump cuteness, right?
not as far as the rocky mountain one-size pocket is concerned. instead of having all those extra snaps on the front, the leg elastic is adjustable. the people over at rocky mountain refer to this as the "internal adjustment system," and it's the exact same concept as those adjustable waistbands on nice toddler jeans (and some maternity pants). basically, the leg elastic has 4 snap settings that adjust the diaper from extra small to large. you pull the elastic to the setting you want and snap it in place. then you leave it that way until baby grows enough to need a bigger setting.
the result is a CUTE one-size pocket that really fits well, even on small babies. hudson's got some pretty skinny legs, and this diaper works very, very well on him. a common complaint of one-size diapers is that they don't fit well on babies until about 12 pounds. i agree that it can be hard to get a good fit on those bitty legs. if i'm not veeeeeery careful with how i put on our bum genius, hudson ends up with damp clothes or jammies. with our rocky mountain diaper, this isn't an issue. check out the fit...
elastic so snug, lucy's dolly could wear this diaper...
the inner of this diaper is made of nice, soft microsuede. it keeps hudson's little bum dry, which is nice because it's seems he's prone to rashes from exposure to dampness against his skin. all those fitteds i so lovingly made for him? yeah, we can't really use them too much at this point. gotta keep that little guy super dry or this mama is breaking out the butt balm.
i wrote to the people over at rocky mountain to let them know how much i was loving my diaper, and they offered up TWO for me to give away here on the blog. i wish i could keep them, but i don't think that's what they intended. so here goes a giveaway for you!
to enter, visit the rocky mountain site, peek around, come back and leave a cute comment here on the blog. don't forget to leave an email so i can get a hold of you if you're one of the two lucky winners! deadline for entry is sunday at 8 p.m. pst. winners will be picked by a random number generator and posted shortly after. good luck! and if you don't win, i still urge you to check out these diapers, especially if you're building a newborn stash and looking for a pocket that will fit your bitty baby.
