Newborn Diaper Trial Results: Peachy Green All In One

Today I am sharing the results of the newborn diaper trial for one of my favorite trim diapers the size zero Peachy Green All in One.  These were some of the first newborn diapers I bought after I found out I was pregnant when I saw a rainbow of them on the buy/sell/trade page and decided I had to have them!  I already own a bunch of the one size AI2 and size 1 AIO diapers and I have long been a fan of how trim but absorbent they are.
I conducted the newborn diaper trial exactly the same as my normal diaper trial with the exception of how I logged the leaks.  Overall I would say that the newborn diapers I used leaked more often than the one size diapers I have tried in the past.  For that reason I decided to track the severity of the leak to give the results a little more color.  With each leaks I ranked them from one to five with one representing a tiny leak that you might not even change their clothes for and a five being soaked.  Now for the results of the Peachy Green size zero:

Number times of uses: 17
Number of leaks: 6
Longest wear without a leak: 3.5 hours
Average severity of leaks: 1.5
Big Booty factor – 2

·      Very trim!
·      Soaker detaches for ease of laundering and drying
·      Lots of great print options that are gender neutral

·      Sized diaper so no rise snaps or umbilical snap down
·      One the expensive end at almost $25 a diaper but I bought all of my used
My love of the trimness of Peachy Green continues.  These diapers are intended to fit from 7-16 pounds and that was about right.  As a true newborn diaper this did not fit as the legs had gaps but once he was in the advertised weight range it fit well.  I used these with a booster for a long time and was really happy with the absorbency for my heavy wetter.  The biggest con is that they are very expensive relative to other brands but because its not really a true newborn diaper but rather the first in a line up of sized diapers you get more use out of it than most newborn diapers.  There is also a lot available on the buy/sell/trade page for a good price which is how I acquired all of mine.
The pictures below are when Lachlan was 2 weeks old and about 6.5 pounds.  The fit on the legs was a little loose. You can see the rise is up over his belly button so it wouldn't work until the umbilical cord falls off. Also the tag is listed as "fishnoodles" which is an old brand name for the same diaper.
The next set of pictures I took were at 1 month old (5 weeks) and he was 9 pounds, 4 ounces.  The legs fit well at this weight. Also the tag is listed as "Fishnoodles" which is an old brand name for the same diaper.

 At 2 months old, my son was 11 pounds 2 ounces and 23 inches long.  The fit here is great as its just below his belly button and there is still plenty of room in the waist. I actually am still using my size zero peachy greens (as well as my size 1) on him at 3 months.
I am and will continue to love the trimness of Peachy Green diapers.  I loved these diapers on my little man since they were so adorable but still worked so well!
