AIO from Blueberry Simplex
Information/ description of the diaper
The cloth diaper is an all-in-one diaper, that is, a complete diaper to which nothing more needs to be added.
The diaper is a one-size diaper, which means that it grows with the child and can be changed in the waist height by means of snaps. The tummy width is also adjusted here with snaps. The Blueberry Simplex has single leg cuffs with elastic, and there is another elastic in the back. According to my research, it fits well from about 5 kg to 16 kg, which is according to the manufacturer's specifications. So for newborns, this diaper is usually not yet suitable. With a price starting at 27,00€, it also belongs to rather more expensive diapers, especially since this system always requires the complete diaper to be washed and accordingly many cloth diapers are needed.
Material of the cloth diaper
The wetness-protecting outer layer is made of PUL (polyurethane laminate), which is partially sewn inside with another layer of polyester. In the inner area, a cotton insert is sewn to your sides, the ends are not sewn in each case, so that the cloth diaper additionally has a pocket function as with a pocket diaper. For this purpose, the additional insert, if any, can be tucked under the polyester flaps. In the front part of the diaper is sewn an additional absorbent pad, which has one side made of cotton, the other side is made of microfleece. Now there are two options: 1. put soaker liner in the pocket so that the microfleece is under the cotton or just 2. use the liner as the top layer so that the microfleece is directly against the baby's skin.
Here are some impressions of the size settings of the cloth diaper
I have now tested the diaper several times on my 2 ½-year-old son, who now weighs in at something like 12kg and has a slim build. On him, the Blueberry Simplex sat very well in the largest setting. Even after wearing it for a long time, there were no major marks from the cuffs on either his legs or stomach. The leg cuffs held tight well, which was also due to the good fit on him. The absorbency of the diaper was quite good. However, since my son often stops for a long time and then gushes pee, the suction power is not enough without further suction insert. In such cases, the diaper was then immediately more than saturated.
When washing the cloth diaper I could not find any problems. Since we do not have a dryer, I dried the diaper on the line. Due to the sewn parts, this took us about 2-3 days in the winter. The removable absorbent pad was of great advantage.
Conclusion AIO from Blueberry Simplex
I am thrilled with the fit for narrower children. The design is appealing and there are a few different models. Unfortunately, the price is rather high in relation to other cloth diapers. However, I cannot recommend the diaper for gushers or frequent peepers, but this is also due to the system of all-in-one diapers itself. The absorbency is otherwise good, though. The tock time is okay. For narrow children who are not frequent peeblers, the Blueberry Simplex is well suited!
