This fitted cotton diaper from is made from soft, 100% organic cotton and features an aplix (velcro) closure and soft hidden elastic around the legs for extra containment. This high quality organic cotton absorbs moisture very well while still feeling dry and is great for sensitive baby skin. For a waterproof system, this diaper should be used with a cover, and it may be used with any cover of your choice. It fits nicely with our organic wool covers.
Fabric: The fabric is fluffy and soft, and this cotton is very absorbent. There's nothing better than 100% organic cotton next to your baby's skin- this diaper is very comfortable for the baby.
Fit: This diaper has a high fit in the front and back, so you'll want to be sure to use this with a cover that also has a higher rise. It features soft elastic around the legs and waist that is comfortable and does not leave red marks on the baby. This is a great diaper for both day and night time use.
Our Review: We really love this fitted diaper. Its high quality organic cotton fabric and excellent absorbency make this one of our top choices for fitted diapers. We like it because it's not too thick, but we always have the option of adding an extra doubler when we need more absorbency (e.g. at night time). This is one of our favorite diapers for both nap time and night time- we use this with a double-knit wool cover and an organic cotton doubler for more absorbency. This is a wonderful night time or nap time system because the diaper contains leaks and messes very well, while providing several absorbent layers of breathable, 100% organic fabric, allowing the baby to sleep comfortably.

Made by Engel, this diaper is made of 100% organic cotton, certified organic by the International Association Natural Textile Industry (IVN) and the Global Organic Textile Standard. High quality organic cotton such as this is antistatic, robust, moth-resistant, and can be washed at high temperatures in washing machines. It is suitable for the most sensitive skin, making it an ideal choice for infants.
Made in Germany.
Care: This diaper may be machine washed and dried on low to medium heat. It should be washed before using it on a baby for the first time, and we recommend washing it 3-5 times before it becomes fully absorbent. This process is necessary to remove the oils naturally found in organic cotton.

This is a great diaper in terms of quality (so plush, super absorbent, wash well) and value (great price). The only notable cons are the fit (these are a bit bulky though I think this will be less of an issue as the baby gets bigger since this is a OS diaper and have the added benefit of having room to grow) and the aplix design (a little unwieldy to get on just right sometimes, i.e., without leaving gaps around the legs); but once it is on right, virtually leak proof.

Engel Natur stands for quality. I agree 100%. The fabric is great, soft and organic. Made in Germany was very important to me because they have stricter regulations manufacturing clothes without toxins.

I love this diaper- the only thing I'd change is make the velcro fasteners snaps instead, but otherwise these are magnificent. My 12 mo old wears the 12-24 mo. size and its so soft, plush, and fits well with room to grow. We just adore the Engel line- great quality.

I am usually not a fan of aplix closure diapers. However, after battling day after day with my toddler at diaper changes, I bought a couple of these to try out. Success! Diapers off and on in seconds. These are silky soft and absorbent. The fit is incredible, a nice high rise in the back, snug elastic around the thighs. These contain very well. They get very fluffy and somewhat pilly looking after washing, but that is the nature of the cotton material. I love love love these! Another great product from Engel!
