I wanted to try this brand because of the high reviews here, but honestly I don't know how they got such high reviews. I've been trying to make them work for nearly a year because they have such cute prints, but they leak more than any other diaper I have. They're also very hard to sell if you aren't trying to sell a desirable print. At first I liked how the diaper seemed thicker but I notice it leaves red marks on my baby no matter how I try to get it to fit properly. The price is ridiculous. I can buy a whole stash of other diapers for 10 ragababes. It also wears out very easily. I noticed pills on the shell and velcro curling only after a month of use. It's so over-hyped.
I did my research before buying my diapers for my newborn in 2012. I read reviews here on the DiaperPin and I stalked all Ragababe sales. back before the baby was born, this wasn't an issue, I was at work and always online so I could easily jump in on those announcements and sales and obtain a few diapers. Over the course of 5 months I was able to score about 3 AIO and 2 AI2s from Ragababe. The prints I got weren't the cutest, but I didn't care, I just wanted diapers!
I ended up giving birth to a large baby that grew very fast. These diapers didn't last very long for me, so given the price, it was a bit disappointing that I couldn't use them for as long as I had hoped. These diapers are way over priced for that reason. There are sites out there that teach you how to 'hack' the diaper and put snaps on the rise of a L so that you can make it last longer, but honestly who wants to pay $30 for a diaper that you have to then modify? Now that I'm expecting my second, I'm eager to use the diapers I spent so much money on again, but there's no way I'm buying more of these. I prefer my bum genius investment over the Ragababe. I know the whole WAHM business model needs to be supported, but at the end of the day my wallet can't afford this luxury.
I have tried most diapers out there, and these are, without a doubt, the best. We've cloth diapered for 18+ months, and this is the first time I've been happy enough with one brand that I've sold off everything else! My entire stash, including wet and laundry bags, is Ragababe. They're a little harder to come by than other brands, but that keeps resale value very high - also a huge plus. They're very trim, easy, and we've actually never had even one leak! The owner, Joy, is am amazing person, a s I just can't say enough good about these!
This is our diaper bag favorite. Easy on and off, even he pediatrician isn't afraid of it. The cut is trim and the legs fit our skinny son well without gaps. We don't use it for overnight, but for daytime it is great. It has gotten a lot of wear from us using it so much that the outside fabric under the hook and loop strip is getting pilly. Sometimes it can wick there if the diaper is totally saturated, but like I said, it has gotten a lot of use. The diaper cleans up great and dries very quickly. I just wish they were easier to get. :)
