diaper review & giveaway!


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.

I love the concept of these diapers! The chocolate covered ones are too cute. I think these would fit Julia well, as she has some chubby thighs and a skinny little waist. I can never get her BG's tight enough on the waist without leaving huge red marks on her legs.

These diapers looks great - I hadn't heard of them either.

And speaking of cute...your baby is soooo cute:)

Jackie said...

These diapers are so cute! I love the chocolate covered ones. We have a diaper in our stash that has this kind of adjustment (can't remember what it's called though) and I love it. It fits my daughter great!

What an awesome idea to do the elastic like that! The monkey diaper is so cute. My husband calls her his little monkey so I think he'd love to put her in that one =)

They look a lot cuter than the BG's! I agree with Erin - USA made is even more awesome!

Nikki said...

I think these diapers are so cute! I have been eyeing them for awhile now. I love the chocolate covered ones and love that there are no size adjustment snaps on the outside of the diaper which makes the diaper so much cuter than other OS pockets.

Oh, these look like something I want to try. I love the chocolate covered ones. The snugness is great for my little guy.

I love that the inners are different colors instead of just white! The leg elastics sound like a great idea, similar to fuzzibuns.

Urban Cowgirl said...

I love the look of these diapers - I, too, like the idea of OS diapers but don't really dig the millions of snaps look! They look pretty trim, too, so maybe they fit in pants better than my BG?

These diapers are adorable! I have never heard of them until now. I might have to order one ...

Becky said...

Oh - these look great! We use BG almost exclusively, but would love to try some new OS pockets w/ a stay dry inner (which is the only CD combo that works for us). I really love their "Moovin" print diapers - perfect for my cow-obsessed little man!

We use flats with covers, and I've been experimenting with making my own T-shirt prefolds (can you say, cheap?)

Though we use the cheapest stuff, I'm always looking at pockets and all-in-ones, and am so intrigued. I like the microfleece inside, and wonder if these would suit my very heavy wetter???

Very cool - the chocolate covered and cow prints are adorable!

Ok I may have an obsession with chocolate paired with another color because those chocolate diapers on the homepage are super cute!

I love the colors and esp the cow print!
We're just starting our CD journey and the hubs insists on using AIO's or pockets.

I love my one size diapers and to have one that was truly one size is awesome. I also like that there are no snaps showing when the size is moved up. I hate snaps showing when I take cute pics of my DS in his one size diapers. I also enjoyed the history of the adjustable elastic feature.

Wow, they look great! We're trying to increase the number of snap diapers in preparation for toddlerhood- these seem like they'd do the trick!

Wow! That's an awesome idea. And good grief, I LOVE those chocolate ones that are featured on the site...

Love the chocolate covered look to the diapers on their site! Only got to peak around for a second as Rain demanded "Hudsee, Hudsee, Hudsee" as she wanted to see pictures of Hudson. I can't wait to try them out with their Stay-Dry inner. I like the orange one better than the greenie you had last week :) ~Molly kimesm@yahoo.com

Mica B said...

I love the chocolate colored diaper! I am so jealous that you have a local diaper store. I live in a big city, yet we have nothing. I'd love to broaden my stash a bit and try out these new Rocky Mountain diapers! micabutler@embarqmail.com

Emily said...

Super cute! I have a skinny 22 month old and a 4 month old with the squishiest thighs. I love the idea of the adjustable leg bands :)- we are very familiar with adjustable waist pants here already! Like everyone else, love the chocolate dipes.

I think the idea of the adjustable leg is great. One size for all is a great design ond on top of that they are so cute too!!

Nicole said...

kathleen said...

I'd love to try one! I am interesting in the different technique for being a OS diaper.

I really like the chocolate covered diaper...that is so cute! We've had some issues with Luke's BG's leaking out the sides when he has a runny poop. I'd love to give these a shot to see if they work better.

Those look so comfortable! I'm tempted to purchase one even if I don't win the giveaway. =)

How cute! I want one! I like the idea of the adjustable casing, that would probably help out with leaking. These are so much cuter than the BG's!

anondad said...

these diapers look great i think my wife would love one.... sorry for not commenting in a while been real busy with family stuff. but when are we going to see picts of you trying on some cloths enough with the kids already. joke. still love the blog

Stasi said...

They sound great, Erin. Two of our biggest problems - the skinny legs and the constant rash - seem to be addressed. We've had to go 'sposie for nighttime b/c of the rash problems, and most dipes leak out her legs (Fuzzibunz, I'm looking at you!!).

Anyway, you know my email - hope I win! Hugs, Stasi & Maggie
