Babykicks Organic Cotton and Hemp Cloth Diaper Review (Give Away + Discount)

I am reviewing this nice and cute diaper provided by 3W. I have been using this diaper for a few months before writing this review just to make sure I have fully tested the CD and to have a fair bit of review for this CD.

  • Air Gussets - which is made from fleece material which allows for air flow inside baby bump to prevent diaper rashes. 
  • Available color: Meadow/ Green ; Poppy/Red ; Sunset/Orange ; White with multicolor snaps

When I first received the diaper via postage, it give me a "wow" effect.. which the color is striking.. and the feel of the material on the outer fabric is very soft and smooth.. 
 some details on the CD
 My reviews are below (scale * Very bad ** Poor *** ok/fair **** Good ***** Excellent)

Prewash - *** it just came one piece of cloth diaper without any packaging and instruction how to prewash it. so I just do my routine prewash 5 times before use in hot (wash dry wash dry) before using. 
Ease of Use - **** Side button/snaps system - this is my first side snapping system CD. I pretty love it as it look very trim and modern and is pretty easy to wear it on.
Absorbency - *** it can last 3 hours at least for my baby.. and is good for day use diaper. but what i not really like is the inner layer is not stay dry due to it is cotton material.. so I have to add on a stay dry liner so baby bum won't feel wet.. but other than that i am happy with the performance.. 
Fitting - *****  the overall cutting is big but fitting is just nice.. so far it doesn't leave any red marks on my baby tights due to its soft air gusset design. my baby is 8.5kg now on large setting.
Trimness - **** it is trim and it can be wear over romper. for pocket cloth diaper.. it is consider very trim design :) 
Quality - ***** the sewing workmanship is very good. after numerous washes it still look as new and it is still very soft.
Drying time: *** it need 1-1.5 days to totally dry under hot sunny day 
Overall - **** I love this diaper due to the design and trimness.. it look good and comfy for my baby..
