BumGenius Freetime AIO One-Size Cloth Diaper Review

BumGenius Freetime in Albert
The Freetime is an all-in-one (AIO), one-size cloth diaper from BumGenius. This diaper, designed to fit babies 8-35 pounds, makes cloth diapering about as easy as it's ever going to be. It's all one piece, and there are no pockets to stuff or unstuff and no cover or extra inserts needed.   

The soakers are attached at each end, which allows this diaper to dry extremely quickly for an AIO. Inside, mine will dry overnight. On a warm day outside, it will dry in about 3-4 hours. I find that these do dry a little quicker than the BumGenius Elemental, because of the way the diaper is able to lay completely open when drying. 
The flaps are made of two layers of microfiber topped with suedecloth, so there is a stay dry layer next to baby's skin. For added absorbency, there is an extra layer of microfiber inside the shell of the diaper, which is also topped with suedecloth. When both flaps are folded over, you're left with five layers of absorbency.

The soakers fold over into the diaper -there is no wrong way to do this, so it's easy for Grandma or the babysitter to figure out. Just lay them in and it's ready to be put on the baby. I had some concerns at first that Jaxon would knock the flaps around while I was trying to change him (diaper changing time often turns into a mommy/baby wrestling match). However, the flaps stay in place and aren't easily moved. 
You can also fold the flaps like this to add extra absorbency in front for little boys!

Like it's other BumGenius counterparts, this diaper features two rows of snaps for a great fit, and the standard BumGenius snap down sizing options. I do find the fit to be slightly trimmer between the legs than a BumGenius 4.0.

As you can see in the picture below, the Freetime is just a tad narrower than my 4.0, but is a little thicker. For us, that means a better fit between the legs and a slightly fluffier butt than we would have if we used our Elemental or 4.0.
This diaper fits perfectly and we have had no leaks.

This is definitely my favorite BumGenius diaper for daytime use. I love how easy it is to use. I love not having to stuff it. I still like the Elemental for its organic material, but even after sunning, mine has several stains. I was pleased to see that stains on the Freetime sun out easily. I know that's not a big deal to some people, but I really like for my diapers to smell and look clean.

The BumGenius Freetime retails for $19.95 and can be purchased at Kelly's Closet.

Have you tried the Freetime? What did you think?


My sweet husband bought this diaper for me, but he didn't require me to review it (lol) and I didn't receive any other compensation for this review. All opinions are my own. My affiliate links are present in this review.
