Newborn Diaper Comparisons

THX Newborn AIO

Type: Newborn AIO

Waist/Width: (circumference) varies between 10" - 19" based on snap setting and elastic

Rise/Height: (front to back) varies between 9.5" - 13.5" based on snap setting and elastic

Outside Material: Extra fluffy/shaggy minky or PUL

Inside Material: Fleece

Gusseting: Double Gussets

Absorbent Material: Microfiber (I think)

Absorbency: TBD

Leg Gap Rating (0-10): Rated a 7 - this has a fairly trim leg gap for a diaper of this size.  It should fit an average baby or a slightly skinny baby well.  For a very skinny thighed baby, I might try something else.  

Price Paid: Approx $5 - $6 

THX is a textile manufacturer that makes various cloth products including newborn sized all-in-one cloth diapers.  THX does not sell in small quantities to individuals so the best way to get their products is through a retailer or co-op.  I got mine through a great co-op on facebook as I do with most of my diapers.  

At first glance these diapers are top notch!  They have a PUL or minky outer, a fleece inner, double gusset lining, and several fluffy microfiber absorbent layers.  The quality of the stitching is pretty good, I don't see any loose threads or missed fabric, and after a few prep washes nothing is piling or starting to pull apart.  The absorbent layers appear to be at least 4 layers of microfiber, they quilted up very nicely after prepping and are about the same thickness as a pocket diaper stuffed with 4 layers of microfiber. 

Its a little disappointing that these diapers only come with snap fasteners, there is no option for a velcro closure which means there are only a limited number of sized settings.  Nonetheless, there were enough sizing options to fit baby Faylee quite well  so the diaper should be able to fit a newborn as small as 5 or 6 pounds but that newborn might outgrow these guys quickly, maybe around the 8-10 pound mark.

Alright, time for pictures!

The leg/wing droop is pretty good!

The wing droop looks a little worse from this angle but keep in mind this fake baby's legs are much smaller than any real baby.
