Baby City Diapers Review

A review of Baby City Cloth Diapers. These are also known as "China Cheapies" and can be found for sale on ebay for cheap. Read the review to find out why I DO NOT recommend them.

Baby City Diapers were the first cloth I tried on my girls.  We wanted to give CD’ing a go and didn’t want to put too much moolah into it.  I knew that these were not going to be the best quality but wanted to try anyways for the practice of not-going-to-throw-that-away diapering. I ordered them on ebay and got 10 diapers for around $44 with free shipping. They came from China and took about 3 weeks. I did get a tracking number which was nice to follow.

Read the review to find out why I DO NOT recommend them. In the beginning we were not sure how to use the snaps correctly, there were so many and I didn’t realize that you could snap the rows together to adjust the rise.  Once I figured this out it made things easier. Needless to say, we had some leaking issues from the beginning. Once I figured out how to get a good size on them, we still had leaks.

With my infant, who is a heavy wetter, we would and still do get leaks around the legs. I think we had an issue with the fleece inner repelling as well as the microfiber insert not absorbing a whole lot. Instead of stuffing the insert into the pocket I layed it on top of the fleece with a fleece liner on top of that to keep the stay dry feeling and that seemed to work better. At night I would use a prefold instead of the insert and that worked. I tried stripping to solve the repelling problem and it worked ok

I tried snapping the wings in different ways to prevent this but it never seemed to work. She would also wet through the insert and get compression leaks.

Pro’s: affordable, inserts usually work their way out in the wash so you dont have to unstuff, can work pretty well with some tweaking, lots of snaps for adjusting.

Con’s: no hip snap, leaking issues, not very absorbent insert, take a while in the mail, not many colors to choose from and they often fall apart quickly.

If you are looking for a low-cost cloth diaper option please check out this post or visit some of my favorite retailers for their low-cost diapers:

Diaper Safari Indian Prefold (1 Dozen) and Diaper Safari One Size Covers (free shipping) should get you through 1-2 days of diapering. If you purchase 1 dozen prefolds and 2-3 covers it will be about the same cost as 12 of these Baby City diapers and will last you so much longer!

Nicki’s Diapers has a package which contains diapers to fit from newborn until the toddler stage. This Bare Minimum package includes 24 small and 24 large prefold diapers and 8 one size covers for just over $150 (free shipping). You can even upgrade if you think you will need more. (Think about how fast $150 in disposable diapers will go).

  1. I would have to agree. I purchased 1 lot of 10 diapers. When I received them 5 of them the outer pul had been pieced and sewn together. One of the other ones the snaps would not work. The inserts were not sewn together good and fell apart before the initial washing and drying was even over with. The diapers also leaked a lot. I would definitely not recommend these diapers.

  2. I ordered 5 of these on ebay. 3 of them delaminated after only 1 wash. The one I’ve tried that didn’t delaminate leaked.The seller was kind enough to agree to send more, that’s about the only good thing I can say about them.

  3. I had bought several of the babycity and babyland diapers from eBay from march tthrough may. My baby is not due until July and I just washed all my diapers today and five ofthe babycity ones completely delaminated I wish I had read this post before purchasing these diapers

  5. I purchased a lot of 6 with inserts and I have to agree that the inserts are terrible. I have to use 2 with my 5 month old daughter or she leaks. I have also noticed that all of mine are delaminting and I’ve had them for about a week maybe two. I emailed the seller today to see whats going to be done about it.

  6. I wish I found this first…. I haven’t washed mine yet I SAS hoping to find the website for what they recommend I only ordered 1 lot of 10 I hope they’ll be better than nothing though till I can get more of something else. And that for the price they won’t be horrible

  7. Just read your review. Wondering your babycity’s held up since your post. I got 9 off ebay for about $30. I recieved them around Sept. 9. Here it is the 18th && they are falling apart. The plastic is separating from the fabric layer. (delamination) i wrote & sent a picture & hoping to get my money back. If someone is looking for a cheap way to cd check out flips & econobums. I use those and can’t rave enough. At least you know what you are getting.

  8. I am not sure which sellers you are using but I’ve been buying Baby City since the beginning of the year and I haven’t had a single one fall apart or leak. The inserts were thick micro fiber and are the exact same ones that I had previously been buying at our local baby stores for $5-7 each, which was a complete rip off. We currently use ours for our developmentally delayed 4.5yr old and our 2 month old, our 4.5yr old is a heavy wetter and suffers from chronic diarrhea and hasn’t blown a diaper out yet, he did however blow out of our BumGen’s constantly and almost had us switch back to disposables. I think it all depends on the seller and whether or not you’re getting real BabyCity or the knock off of the already cheap BC’s.

  9. I have baby city I never have had any problems with them my inserts were very thick ones and got better with every wash. Are you sure that you have not brought a knock off

  10. Maybe the they have gotten better. My wife and I got 14 of them 2 months ago we wash then all the time. Never had a problem with them seperateing. We use 2 insurts and never have a problem with them leaking. We are very satisfied with both price and quality.

  11. Don’t like baby City Diapers. Was given 2 of them at my baby shower. super bad leakage. I LOVE my “g” diapers however. If you want to use cloth, that is the way to go!

  12. Does “delaminating” mean that the inner plastic-y liner separated? This is the problem I’m having with these….no leakage problem otherwise. But, after only a few washes, over half of them have done this. Very frustrating. Followed the laundering instructions, and hung to dry. Ugh.

  13. I have a few that look like this (I’m sure they’re made by the same company). We didn’t get inserts with ours, but we use a prefold or another insert in them and they work pretty well for short time periods. We don’t put these on our boy if we think e may nap soon, and when we use them, we just know we have to change his diaper a little sooner because like you said, they are more prone to leaking. I do like them because the fabric has a little stretch to it, and they are a little bit shorter in the back for a little bit of a trimmer fit. While these aren’t our primary CDs, we’ve had them in rotation for about two months and haven’t had a problem with delaminating. We also will use them at night as a cover over a disposable diaper (when he’s had a long day and will likely sleep longer….too long for our thickest CD or when our thicker CDs are in the wash).

    • I agree Wendy, they did work for short periods of time. I never tried using a cloth cover over a disposable, interesting tip!

      • Yeah, we only do that if he’s been sleeping really hard through the night….so hard that he barely moves in his sleep….so his disposable would get super saturated in the front. These clothies worked well to soak that up and keep his skin a bit dryer when layered on top!

  14. I ordered 2 lots (20 of them). I plan on just using them as diaper covers. I’ll be using flats or pre-folds (i can add inserts I’m sure to double up for night-time.)

    I think if I do it this way it would be solid and I can use them until potty training. I hate wasting money no matter how cheap I paid for it.
