Green Mountain Diapers: Blueberry Simplex AIO OS Cloth Diaper Review


Green Mountain Diapers was born in 1998 and 10 years later was moved out of Karen's home, to the nearby Cotton Mill (in 2009). Green Mountain Diapers is a small husband and wife run business with the addition of 4 employees to help out, making them a wonderful team of people helping to serve every families cloth diapering needs. They are dedicated to quality service (which I can attest for) as well as providing natural fiber diapering. Their mission is to inform others about cloth diapers and help provide the very best for today's modern diapering products focusing on those natural fibers.

Blueberry Simplex OS AIO

The Simplex AIO OS ($25.95ARV)diaper has pocket openings on both ends to allow for increased absorbency to be added to the diaper by using extra inserts. There is a cotton or stay-dry sewn in soaker as well, you choose which you want. The double opening pocket, or what I prefer to call a tunnel, also allows for the insert(s) to agitate themselves out while in the wash. Even though several of my diapers have this double opening pocket, I still prefer to remove the inserts before tossing in the wash, it's a personal choice.

 You can stuff the soaker into the pocket or leave it lay on top of the pocket, your choice. I have used this diaper with it both ways and like it both ways. You can fold the soaker in half so there is more absorbency in the wet zone too. What an awesome customizable diaper hey!? 

So how does it fit? Lets see!


Ezio is 2 years old, just under 30 pounds and 30.5" tall. The Blueberry Simplex OS AIO fits him with tons of room to grow, which is awesome! The above photo on the right is a tad blurry, but the snap down rise is snapped down to one of the two rise snaps placements and the tummy panel snaps are on the second to smallest settings! This makes me believe that this diaper will in fact fit Cade who is 3.5 years old, 40 pounds and 35.5" tall. I have not yet tried this diaper on Cade as I love the Simplex so much on Ezio, plus Ezio seems to really like the cute little monkeys on this diaper as it is one of the first ones he picks out. I will eventually try this diaper on Cade and update this post with how it fits on him. As for Ezio, like mentioned above the fit is great! This diaper, as well as many other one size diapers has a recommended fit for a max. weight of 35 pounds, however I foresee this diaper fitting past 35 pounds, it does depend on the child's body build though. The absorbency of the sewn in soaker by it's self is fairly well for awake playing time, as for nap time and bed time I do add an additional insert, just because he usually has a bit to drink before going to sleep for both. Rather be safe then sorry. We love our Simplex AIO OS diaper! 

Green Mountain Diapers has many other products as well including, but not limited to wool items, prefolds, etc. Be sure to stop and pay them a visit.
