This is a review of the Wink All In One Diaper. This is a bamboo AIO diaper, and it’s been in my stash for a while. I purchased this shortly after doing the interview with Bailey from Wink Diapers, and I am finally sitting down to write about it.
What is an all in one diaper? an all in one diaper is a simple one piece cloth diaper. The inserts are sewn into the diaper and it has a grab and go functionality. All In One diapers are good for one pee before needing to be washed. If you want to learn more about cloth diapering, I would recommend checking out my book on cloth diapers.
About Wink Diapers
Wink Diapers is a US-owned cloth diaper brand. The owner Bailey is a mom who had a passion to create a product. You can listen to the full story on the cloth diaper podcast.
Today, Wink Diapers are sold almost exclusively via Winkdiapers.com, and a variety of different products are available to meet your needs including a pocket, cover, and newborn sizing. I’ve also purchased the cover and inserts, and will follow up with a review at a later time.
About the Wink AIO Diaper
The Wink AIO diaper is a one size diaper estimated to fit babies 8-35lbs and features a 3×4 rise setting to give you a wide array of sizing options. It also has a triple waist snap, cross over snap, and a double gusset. This is a diaper with features, and lots of them. Don’t forget the front tummy panel, the ruffle back elastic, and the hip snaps!
Inside you’ll find 7 layers of organic bamboo Terry (remember, bamboo is a viscose rayon product). This is presented in a double insert presentation. By that, I mean that there is two flaps sewn into the diaper, one at the front and one at the back. Such a set up in an all in one diaper is ideal because it allows for easy growth of the diaper. I find that this set up really reduces bulk and gets the absorbency where you need it. You also find this with the Omaiki AIO, and the Nerdy Mommas AIO. However, this diaper differs because it has a sewn in layer of absorbency in the shell of the diaper. This does not mean it’s more absorbent, but rather has a different absorbency lay out.
The diaper retails for about $25.99 USD or about $35 CDN. It is a higher priced product in this niche.
What I Love about the Wink AIO Diaper
- The inside inserts sewn on both sides. I love that means this diaper will fit small babes without bulk all at the from to the back.
- Belly panel at the front.
- Double gusset because sometimes that’s what you need to get a nice leg fit.
- Back elastic
What I don’t love about the Wink All In One Diaper
I try really hard to not come into product reviews with a negative attitude. I try really hard to like a product, but sometimes when a product lands on my desk, it’s easy for me to know that this isn’t something that I immediately love and want to recommend. I never did get to try it on my child but I do have 5 years of intensive cloth diapering experience, and my gut doesn’t love this diaper.
Remember reviews are one persons opinions, there are many other reviews out there and it’s important for you to find a product that works for you family, your child, and you. That’s the pinnacle of my life, and movement.
- I don’t love that the absorbent bamboo material extends out past the back ruffle (see picture below). This gives me anxiety about leaks as I have had similar issues with other ruffled cloth diaper products in the past.
- This is a small fit diaper. It only features 6 waist settings and small wings in comparison to a lot of more modern cloth nappies.
- The hip/waist snap combo is not a favourite either, I question the functionality of the hip snap as it’s fairly low and in.
Wink All In One Comparison
I pulled out a few other diapers to compare the Wink All In One diaper too. I felt it was a small fitting diaper in my hands, but when laid out it’s not noticeably smaller. The nice thing about the Wink diaper is that it is incredibly thin and trim compared to the other products – bumgenius Elemental and the Rumparooz Pocket.
Thin and trim is nice but it gives me anxieties as it also means subpar absorbency. I would have to do an absorbency test to learn more, but 7 layers of pure bamboo suggests to me about 7 ounces… that’s just a guess. do you know?
If you have a small child, or smaller babies, I might recommend the Wink All In One diaper.
I would not recommend this diaper to those of you with chunkier babies.
