Surely one diaper cannot be all those things, or can it?  Many diapers claim to be.  Some are very close, but fall short in one category or another.  Only one so far in our cloth diapering adventure manages to wrap all those things up in one fabulously adorable diaper--and that diaper is none other than Bright Star Baby!

The diaper featured in this review is a Bright Star Baby AIO, size 1 in the gorgeous black butterfly print.

Front.  Mmm!  The top panel is nicely finished with a turned & topstitched seam.  I love the crisp, clean look of side-snapping diapers, and Bright Star Baby is no exception! 

Back.  Two unique features of the Bright Star Baby can be found in the back of the diaper.  The first is the unique way the elastic is sewn in, and the second is the serging at the top back.  Many diapers have elastic at the back, but none have it sewn in such a way that it not only acts as a barrier agains leaks, but also contributes to the ultra-trim design.  The serging at the top also keeps this diaper super trim, because it means that no layers have been folded over (thus creating extra bulk).  Also, notice that while the diaper is very trim, it is amply cut through the bum so those cute little cheeks stay covered.

Side.  Notice how the side-snaps contribute to the Bright Star's slender silhouette?  From the side view, you can also see the unique leg openings--the elastic is not sewn into a casing, nor does it roll--ensuring that even the chubbiest of baby legs won't get red marks!  I love how they picked snaps to coordinate with the print too ;)

Crotch.  You can tell just how trim the Bright Star Baby AIO is, just by looking at how little bulk is at the crotch.  

Waist.  You can see just how thin the "shell" of the diaper is.  It's no wonder this diaper is so trim!

Wings.  The wing tabs are not only nice and long with four rows of snaps to accomodate a growing babe, but they are also nice and stretchy!  You're sure to get a perfect fit :)


Inside the Bright Star Baby AIO, nothing but soft organic cotton/bamboo fabric touches your baby's delicate skin.  Snaps are hidden beneath the inner lining.  The insert snaps out for easy laundering & quick dry time.

The insert for the Bright Star Baby AIO is made of buttery soft bamboo fleece that is amazingly absorbent!  Don't be fooled by how thin it is--it soaks up liquid quickly and holds quite a bit.

The insert design is unlike any other snap-in insert I've seen!  At first glance, it looks like a bi-fold soaker like most other diapers with snap-in soakers have.  However, if you look closely at it from the side, you can see a third layer in the back panel.  

We love our Bright Star Baby AIO's!  In fact, sometimes, I wish I needed more so I had an excuse to buy more of the fabulous new prints :)  These are some of my favorite "showing off" diapers that I save for outings.  I love that even under leggings you can't tell she's wearing a cloth diaper because it's so trim!   Given its trimness, the amount it can absorb is rather surprising!  Although I prefer to change J every 1.5 hours or so, in our experience, Bright Star Baby diapers can withstand 2-3 hours of use without wicking.  In circumstances where I know ahead of time that I'll need it to last a bit longer, I use our Bright Star hemp booster for added absorbency. Thankfully, we've never experienced poo escaping!

Aside from the trimness, the fit of Bright Star Baby is probably my favorite aspect of these superb diapers.  I love that the bum is cut generously enough to cover, but not so wide that it puckers from the excess material.  The crotch is amply narrow so to speak--it is just perfect!  The elastic in the legs is so gentle that even when J was a chunky monkey at 6 months, it didn't leave red marks.  Now that she's 13 months and is lean through the legs, the same size 1 diaper still fits her perfectly!  And of course, the front looks like a million bucks thanks to the side-snap closures.  I could not be more please with the fact that the same diaper that fit J 7 months ago, still fits her perfectly now, and will continue to fit her for months to come!!   She has 10lbs to grow before she'll need the size 2--and hopefully by then she'll be potty trained ;)

For reference, J is almost 14 months old and weighs around 18lbs and wearing a Bright Star Baby size 1.

If you've been holding out for the day time diaper that has it all, look no further!  Bright Star Baby AIO really is trim, absorbent, cute, and a great value for your money.  I highly recommend them!
