Rainbow Diaper Reviews
ADD A NEW REVIEW:
I used to have diaper service (Baby Diaper Service in Seattle), but it was expensive and the diapers were pretty flimsy. I ordered Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby and was pleasantly surprised... I like the Rainbow diapers very much, and I use them exclusively now, but I do not order anything else from their catalog or web-site. -- Sarah Turner (Mar 28/00)
I bought the Rainbow diapers from the Natural Baby Catalog and the Nikki diaper covers. I love them. I think they work really well, I've also heard from other people that have used them through two and three children (The Nikki covers) and the Rainbow diapers couldn't be easier, no folding, or pinning, just lay them in a cover, Velcro® it shut, and tuck in the parts hanging out. -- Abby (Mar 20/00)
Some brands of diapers which worked VERY WELL with both methods: plastic pants and GERBER Velcro® diaper covers are the pinnable Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby and the Snuggle Ups with out the Velcro® from Simple Alternatives. -- Diane (Oct 29/99)
Rainbow diapers - don't last, fall apart, aren't absorbant and too expensive!!!! -- Erika (Oct 21/99)
I was really looking forward to using cloth diapers, mainly for economical and medical reasons. I ordered the Rainbow diapers and Nikky covers from Natural Baby and found them to be useless. They leaked. I called the company several times to discuss the problem (not once did I talk with anyone who actually used the diapers) and I followed their suggestions such as make sure your child is changed every two hours. I did this and either the diaper was dry or they were soaked through to my daughter's clothes. I'm still trying to use the diapers I purchased (along with disposables which make me feel terribly guilty) until I know of a company that has cloth diapers that do not leak. By the way, my child is not a heavy wetter. I have another child on the way, I'm hoping to find good cloth diapers as soon as possible. -- Mary (Oct 17/99)
My Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby Co. have lasted 3+ years, and I just recently bought another dozen to supplement the ones I bought back in '96 and they seem to work better... The old ones had a tendency to build up lint and get a little bunchy but the new ones have an extra seam which seems to be keeping the bunching away. -- Kris (Oct 13/99)
I used Rainbow contour diapers for a while, but they didn't wick the urine back to the rest of the diaper fast enough and we always had leaks. Just one small part of the diaper would be wet and then the rest would leak out onto her clothes. I did have better luck using two of these at once, but that made for a pretty bulky diaper. They are very thick and take a long time to dry, too. I have heard that these make excellent doublers inside another diaper, though, so I know some people like them. -- Serena Johnson
Rainbow diapers- the hour glass shaped ones - I found these to not be very absorbent at all and constantly had to wash my covers because the diaper didn't contain the poops. -- Shannon Brousseau
A friend of mine uses Rainbow diapers. I don't know where she got them, but inside of 5 months of use, the insides pilled up and got all lumpy and weren't very useful at absorbing anything. I wouldn't recommend those! -- Cathleen Oldenburg
Rainbow Diapers: Absorbent enough for day, but not good for nighttime use. The stitching on some of mine is starting to come apart so I can't say they are very durable. -- Mary Russell
Biobottoms and Nikki Velcro® wool covers: I tried them with Rainbow contours but then the covers would get soiled and constantly have to be washed. -- Shannon Brousseau
I use two Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby inside one wrap. They don't have to be folded down in front. Their diaper and wrap sizes are way off for my child. She is 27 months and weighs 30 pounds and is in the 15-30 pound wrap and we used the 'tighest' Velcro® setting. I imagine she will be in them until potty training.
Their Rainbow diapers, while absorbent, fall apart readily and are very expensive. The Grandma's Wool Soakers do leak, but I use them over doubled diapers; and I have followed the wash/dry instructions precisely from day one. -- Debra Goodman
I use one Rainbow diaper inside of their snap wraps. The snap wraps leak very easily at night. The diaper can be practically dry and the bed is totally wet. The wraps also stick out in front and you can look down inside to see the diaper. The Rainbows have to be folded down in front about 2 inches to keep from popping out and getting her clothes wet. The shape of the diaper allows the poop to get all over the wrap and it is quite a mess. In the last 3-4 months (I guess as my daughter waits longer and wets more) the wraps have a strong urine scent and have to be washed after only one or two potty-only changes. Even then the smell often remains until we double wash and/or use vinegar. Now the extra washing is ruining the wraps and we will have to buy new for baby number two.
I have tried the Rainbow diapers from Natural Baby and been disappointed. They have been hard for me to fit on my baby and they also do not seem very absorbent. In fact, I am going to start using the Rainbows as burp cloths instead of diapers. -- Allison Gatto
Watch out for Rainbow Diapers. I ordered 6 to try and liked them, ordered 2 dozen 4 days later and they were completely different. Customer service told me they had switched manufacturers. -- Kim (Sept 7/99)
I love my Rainbow diapers, covers and doublers. Have had none of the problems others describe. No bulkiness, no rips, nothing. They work quite well. -- Lani (Aug 30/99)
I have only tried the Rainbow contours. I really like the convenience, but after about 2 weeks, the stitching has begun to ravel. -- Wendy Jane (Aug 25/99)
I did not like the Rainbow Diapers by Natural Baby. The flannel outside doesn't last as long as the terry inside and eventually I had holes in the flannel. Also the rainbow stitching started to unravel. They are not as absorbent as a 4x8x4 prefold. -- Lena (Jul 12/99)
Rainbow diapers are really a poor excuse for diapers. They claim to be the most absorbent and they are the least i know of! -- Krista
DO NOT LIKE: prefolds, Rainbow diapers (the worst) -- Tina Olson
Rainbow contoured: much too large for newborns, will not fit in small covers without big time folding. -- Deborah Grace
