Fit: I really like the fit of these fitteds! Usually fitteds tend to be on the bulky side, but I didn't find these bulky at all, even when using the added hemp booster (as in the photos accompanying this post). I love that I'm able to customise the fit of the waist and rise by folding it down and fastening it with a snappy. The fit around the legs is also spot on, without the elastics leaving angry red marks on his legs. Crotch width is good - not too narrow and not too wide, with good back coverage as well. At a year old and 9.5kg we are folding the rise down for J and there is a small gap between the waist tabs, so still plenty of room to grow. I do find that if I'm putting the diaper on in a hurry (or while J is trying to escape), the waist tabs aren't properly secured by the snappy and looks a bit funny. But it doesn't affect the fit on the rest of the diaper or the function. [Rating: 4.5/5]
Performance: For use during the day we can get away without using the hemp booster and we have not had any leaks. Bear in mind that J is a fairly light wetter, but I think this would work well for daytime for even heavy wetters and certainly will with the addition of the hemp insert. I also tested this fitted for night use, with the hemp insert as well as an additional hemp or bamboo insert and it lasts the whole night (approx 10 hours) with no leaks. The diaper is fairly saturated in the morning when I change him though, so probably not the best option for a very heavy wetter. J feeds throughout the night and I consider him to be an above average wetter at night. With regular use I had no issues with the snappy snagging on the fabric. As is normal for natural fibres, the diaper gets a little stiff when line dried, however it softens up again when placed in the tumble dryer for a few minutes. [Rating: 4/5]

While I aim to provide detailed, objective reviews of all the diapers that I've used, please bear in mind that this is my opinion and that every mom has her own preferences and every baby is built differently. So what works well for me and J, might not necessarily work well for you and your baby. J was 13 months old and 9.5kg when these photos were taken.
