Best Bottom Diaper Cloth Diapering System Review

Header1 Header2

I had the privilege of reviewing a green giraffe shell with 2 microfiber stay dry inserts and a microfiber overnight insert from Nicki’s Diapers. I love the idea of the Best Bottom diapering system, you have a cover and inserts. When the insert is dirty you simply remove the insert and snap in a clean one.


The shell comes in one size that adjusts to 4 different sizes, ranging from newborn to 35+ pounds. My favorite part of the shell would definitely have to be the leg gussets. For small or skinny babies it has the cross over tabs to ensure that nice snug fit.  You have the choice to get your shell in snap closures, or hook and loop… so whatever your preference they have you covered. The inside is fit with a snap at either end to ensure your insert doesn’t move around on your baby, and a nice wipe-able surface for easy cleaning before inserting a new insert.

Best Bottom offers 2 different kind of inserts: a stay dry insert which is made up of 4 layers of microfiber and topped with a super soft no-pill fleece to keep the wetness away from your babies bottom allowing them to feel dry, or you have the choice of the Hemp/Organic cotton which is made up of 5 layers of hemp/organic cotton topped with a super soft hemp/organic fleece. Even though the shell is a one size, the inserts are available in 3 sizes to give a less bulky fit in small, medium, and large. The overnight insert is available in the same options as the regular insert. The overnight is made up of 6 layers of either microfiber or hemp/organic fleece. You simply snap in the over night and then snap a regular insert on top to give you a leak free night. McKenna is a heavy wetter at night and we have had some very successful dry nights. I do find it is pretty bulky with that over night insert in there, but dry nights = great nights!

Best Bottom diapers are so easy to use. Simply snap in a insert and your ready to go. When the diaper gets dirty you snap out the insert give the shell a quick wipe down if needed and snap in a new insert. Being that you can use the shell over again it means more money savings. It is suggested that you only have to buy as many shells as your baby would poop in 2-3 days. So instead of having to put on a whole new diaper on your baby when dirty, you just have to put on a new liner.

Overall I do like Best Bottom diapers, but I do find on McKenna that it does fit a little tighter on her thighs than I like. She is 20 months and weight 26 lbs and she is on the very last setting already. I find there isn’t as much elasticity in the back as I would like, so I think it is a snugger fitting diaper for more rolly babies. The only thing I would change on this diaper is adding more elastic in the back to give more room for the chubby babies. The color variety and prints the shells come in are super adorable and Best Bottom has a great selection for both boys and girls.

You can purchase a Best Bottom shell at Nicki’s Diapers for $16.95 and a insert for just $3.95, for the hemp/organic it’s $5.95
