I'd like to share with you a very fun one-size diaper (2.0 -- this means there is a snap on the back of the diaper, for the insert, it can be used as an AI2) that is in a print called "Home Tweet Home." This is one of the most unique diaper PUL prints that I'm come across and being a bird nerd, I fell in love. It is covered in birdhouses, tweety birds and tree branches. It's adorable and I'd put it on a boy or girl!
I have been really successful in potty training efforts of our toddler (about 34 lbs. for your reference) but at night we still need help. Most nights he'll make it dry, but if I've forgotten to make sure that he's peed before bed, or if we are sleeping in a bed that is not our own (hotels, family and friends) I try to use a diaper or trainer to make sure we don't have any accidents. This diaper is a perfect way to make sure that those little leaks or giant accidents don't turn into a mountain of laundry for me!
Having a few years under my belt with cloth diapers I can say that this diaper would work great for most of your cloth diapering adventures. I wouldn't recommend one-size for newborns, but I can say that it is a pretty standard one-size diaper, and that it will fit a range of babies. Our toddler is on the very end of fitting, but it is still not uncomfortable for him to wear.
The inside is suede cloth, which is a BREEZE to rinse and wash but can hold onto stains, so make sure to take care of anything that looks particularly tricky right away. Sunning is a great remedy for suede cloth (and most all cloth diapers) but a thorough rinse of the offensive material from the inner of the diaper will save you time and appearance of suede cloth.
The outside is PUL. The diaper comes with TWO inserts that are bamboo. I love the natural fiber and trust it on my son's skin. The diaper is an envelope style pocket, so it helps to keep the insert in place and also allows for a snap-in insert.
I thought that the suede cloth of the envelope on the back end of the diaper was not quite long enough to be awesome for staying put. You can see that illustrated in the photo collage above, where my finger is tucked into the backside of the envelope as far as it goes. It's about 1/2" or so of fabric, maybe a little less. I LOVED the different colored snaps and rows of risers in the front. The diaper is adequate to 35 lbs, so like I said, we are on the very end of that, but it still fits well enough to keep nighttime troubles away.
I also REALLY LOVED that there were snaps on BOTH ends of the envelope pocket (on the inside.) I've encountered several that have back side snaps, but not front and back. It really allows the insert to stay put. You get a regular and a snap on small bamboo insert, so really you are getting several layers of protection in addition to the PUL.
