I received my New Bambino Diapers last week and I have had a good chance to look at them and test them out fully before doing this review.  I wanted to do a complete and thorough review of this diaper since there seems to be a lot of misnomers and falsehoods out there.  So, here we go.

The New Bambino Diaper comes with a brand new and very cute print on it that I actually like better than any of the other prints on the market…it doesn’t look too fake but more resembles a baby diaper print which I like.  The best way I could describe it is that it looks like the “Hello Kitty” type graphic…here is a quick photo of the face of the diaper.

The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the bag besides the cute print was that it was definitely a bit thicker than the Bambino Classico, Classico, or Teddy.  We are not talking inches thicker so don’t go exaggerating what I am saying but its noticeable.  After I let it sit out for awhile you can definitely tell that it gets a bit thicker after it decompresses.  Many people are wanting to compare the thickness factor to other brands of diapers.  This point is not a big deal to me because I don’t like having a super bulging diaper that I can’t wear in public.  But, I would say besides a Dry 24/7 or Abena X-Plus…it is thicker than most every other diaper – especially after you let it decompress.  When I say it is not as thick – we are talking centimeters…negligible amounts basically unless you want to nitpick.  Here are a few comparison photos with a Secure X-Plus adult diaper and the New Bambino Diaper:

I left both these diapers out for over 24 hours and you can definitely see that the New Bambino is thicker than the Secure X-Plus diaper…again its not huge amounts.  I did notice a lot of thickness was in the SEAT of the diaper which I appreciate and I like the feeling of a little more padding in the seat of the diaper.  Honestly, the whole thickness factor is really sort of inconsequential to me as long as its not super thin.  The performance, absorbency, and fit are the most important things to me in a diaper and in those categories the New Bambino Diaper in my opinion beats it’s competition.

Absorbency: Bambino advertised that this diaper has more absorbency and they were not kidding.  While I am no scientist about it – I like to think I am a pretty good judge of diaper capacity since I wear full time.  The New Bambino Diaper definitely had a little more powerful absorbency than the other Bambino Diapers did and in my opinion, is the best absorbency diaper you can buy.  They use the most SAP in their diaper which is what does most of the absorption.  A lot of other companies want you to think their diaper is absorbent and use wood pulp or “fluff” in their diaper which doesn’t absorb much at all but makes a diaper look thicker.  Bambino uses a lot more SAP which makes the diaper the most absorbent diaper on the market.

Performance: I thought the performance was just as good as the other Bambino Diapers – maybe a little better in terms of wicking the urine away from you so as to prevent diaper rash.  But, it was a perfect combination with the absorbency I think to get maximum use out of this diaper.

Comfort: The fit is PERFECT on me now…the sizing is a little different (not much) but a little – just enough to make the fit perfect on me now! Which made me happy – I know some people are a little different sizes so this can vary but the fit is really important to me and is where this diaper shines in my mind as well.  Besides that, the INNER LINING of the diaper is SOFTER also in my opinion…not sure what they did but I compared the softness to the Bambino Bianco and while they are both soft – you can tell a difference and it feels really nice against the body.

Appearance: The appearance I think is really well done this time and I think they put a lot of time into it.  They are even having a naming contest of the diaper on their Facebook page where you can win free diapers from them basically.  I think the cuteness factor of the diaper is one of the best out there.

Tapes: The tapes have been as secure as the original Bambino Diapers – I have not experienced any tapes popping off but then again I am not squeezing into the diapers.  If you are trying to squeeze into the diaper or any diaper for that matter – tapes may pop but based on my experience and some others – this does not seem to be the case for the majority of people.

Price: While the price has gone up – this is probably the only negative but then again you can’t really call it a negative if they put more money into making the diaper better plus the fact that its a unique diaper.  The combination of better absorbency, better fit, performance, and a cute print on it make the price worth it to ME!  Others will of course feel different based on what they think is appropriate and their own preferences.

I have always been a loyal fan of Bambino Diapers because of their professionalism in designing these diapers.  They obviously put time into designing and making these adult diapers for the ABDL community exclusively.  I am not going to complain about that at all.  Their customer service is unmatched – especially if you have a problem.  If you have a problem with their diaper such as you received a defective product they are very quick and good about replacing that product for you if it occurs.  They also listen to their customers…hence this diaper.  We all wanted a different print – well we got one with a bit more thickness and absorbency.  They have always listened in my opinion – and if something is defectively wrong with any diaper – they will fix the problem.  You have to respect that in a company because not all of them do that.

Overall: The New Bambino Diaper is a phenomenal adult diaper with probably the best absorbency and performance on the market.  While it is not the “Thickest” diaper on the market – it is not too far off either.  The cute print appeals to me and is definitely a big positive as I think it is more babyish than a lot of other prints on the market.  I am not one too look for the thickest diaper visually but I care more about how a diaper absorbs and performs and when it comes to that – this New Bambino Diaper is unmatched in MY opinion.  The fit is perfect on me but this is highly variable to everyone else as some people will like the fit and others won’t.  Just how that part goes.  I think it is a GREAT addition to the Bambino Diaper line of products and if you can you should definitely check it out.  The price is a little bit more right now but understandable in my opinion considering the added absorbency, performance, cute print, and uniqueness of the diaper.

Note: These are my opinions and my experience with the diaper – everyone is going to have a different experience – good, bad, better, worse – I LOVE this new diaper – someone else might not or think its not worth it.  Definitely understandable as everyone is different and wants different things.  Overall, you have to give a company credit for giving good customer service and producing great products for our community in the end because not many companies do that..

    Hey Adrain. Nice review you got here for the NEW Bambino Diaper. I just got my sample in the mail today and placed the order for it this past Friday. Have yet to try it out myself as to not want to waste a very good diaper. I also sent them an email hoping that they will put these in with them variety case. I just can’t decided which ones I like most myself if not all of them. Yeah, who wouldn’t mind to win diapers from Bambino?!?! I don’t have a facebook account and I myself don’t really care about things like that to much.

    A good ways back while listening to the ABU RADIO SHOW, they did have a winner on a contest and that winner got a years worth of Cushie’s Diapers from ABU. Oh, I also mentioned to them that I came up with Lazy Comfy Diapers as a possible name for the new diaper. Say, by any chance can you tell us the name you thought of for the new diaper?!?! Yeah, I guess it can be kinda of hard to think of a new diaper name that is for AB/DL. Well, I’ve had a long day and I’m going to get to bed and go to sleep. Goodnite everyone and no pun intended to Goodnite’s. P.s. A tad different spelling, but you all I’m sure get the idea. Later. Black-Dragon

    Thank you for your review of the new Bambino. It doesnt sound like it comes with a plain white print, but then again the biancos have worked great for me both day and night. Though i will think about trying this new yet unnamed diaper for night time. I wish it were possible for you to review every kind of diaper on earth, you know what matters most and do a good job relaying that information to your readers. Again i say thank you.

    Thank you for the review of the new bambino, Couldn’t wait to try them before your review, Now I am dying to get some. LOL, I also agree with you about them listening to their customers, but i did email them with an idea that they should make a line of diapers like the blue jean type for little babies, for adults. I thought that would cool to have. Anyway, Thanks again.

    Too bad there isn’t a version of this new diaper that was themed more for girls, eh? Check out what it might look like at http://tinypic.com/r/nf1lyb/5.

    Thank you for a great review, Adrian (always interesting to read your postings, by the way). 🙂

    Looks like a great diaper, like how the rest of the Bambinos appear to be.

    So it is just too bad Bambino are not able to ship them outside the U.S..

    Best wishes,

    I submitted my suggestion to produce a pink version of this new diaper (for the girls), along with the mock-up I created, and they emailed me a discount code for 5% off my next order. Thanks, Bambino! Great that a company really listens to input from their customers. Wish other companies did the same. I already put in my order so I will not be using it anytime soon. Would the discount work for others to use instead?

    I’m pretty excited about this new product too. I must be tough to balance all the financial and production factors to afford to stay in business for a niche market like this, and we’ve seen them miscalculate the supply and demand for size medium, but amazingly they now have three distinct diaper designs with four different panels. Color me impressed.

    Yeah, I definitely confess to sticker-shock on these new ones, at close to $1.80 each in a case – wowzers. My stock of Biancos is really low and it’s getting to the time of year with chilly nights when I like to snuggle up in a thick, soft Bambino under my footed jammies. (And they somehow found a way to make it thicker -and- softer?) But I’m holding out to see if they’ll bundle them in another Variety Case so that I can try them out with the Teddies. I’m more of a DL and Adult Kid than AB (I don’t care for the Classicos), but these are just so darned cute…

    I like Bambino diapers alot but they allways seemed a litle tight on me in the medium size. I still might try a case of the new diapers some time,
    I just wish they made a size of these betweem the lardge and medium in the new diaper style,
    I ordered 10 cases at one time last year of the classico diapers and from my exsperiance I must say I was vary much sold on them but allways seem to have minor fitting problems.
    And then ordered 2 cases of lardge and they were way to big.
    Then I switched to the Dry Care 24/7 Diapers and those have been the best fitted
    disposable diapers Ive ever worn in my book I recomend them to every one who has the same issue that I had in this case.
    And they have had the most vallume of comfort and dryness that you could ever hope for these are the best in my book.

    I just got the sample pack of two medium. I have tried one and agree with John. The leg holes seem a little tight. I love the moisture retention capacity. I didn’t mewp_e what was in it but I was in the diaper for several hours and gave it a work out. Just before it was time to change the upper tape failed, breaking away at the connection point between front and back. I don’t know if it was just this one or if they neglected to increase the strength of the tabs when they increased the capacity. It would probably be worth beefing up the tabs a bit to secure the extra capacity. Otherwise a cute, fun diaper

    John and betsybell – Bambino has stated on their website that the New Diaper sizes and fits differently from the Classico, Bianco, and Teddy. They are now offering a special “Combo Sample Pack” of this diaper containing one medium and one large, specifically for people who are in the gray area between these two sizes. If that’s you, then I would definitely recommend trying this to determine your size in the New Diaper before ordering in a larger quantity.

    Adrian, you know what would really be nice to have, is some pics of you modeling these awesome new diapers for us, to show us how the fit, and where on you they are not comfortable in anywhere. Just a suggestion, We haven’t really seen any recent pics of you, I’m not trying to sound like a perv here, but you are beautiful and we all love your blog and pics so much, with these new diapers it would be a real treat to see a beauty like yourself in them. Thanks for you blog. Addy

    Hi Adrian. Do you (or anyone else here) know if Bambino’s new 2011 diaper-making machine is going to result in the Biancos (and the Classico and Teddy models too) are also being made like the New Diaper style because of how the manufacturing is done? I ask because I noticed today that the sizes for the Biancos are now 31 to 42 inches for medium. If so, I cannot understand why the New Diaper style is more expensive, and if the Biancos (and other styles) will also increase in price accordingly. Will the New Diaper style be the only diaper with the added absorbency over the Biancos, Classicos and Teddys? BTW, I like the new fit (mediums) of the New Diaper style (just got them an hour ago), but wondering if Bambino will make the Biancos the same, but at the current price or if the price will increase.

    I just tried an M/L sample pack of the New Bambino Diaper. The medium is much smaller on me. I actually had to use packing tape to keep it on. I have used medium Bambinos during the day (when staying home) and large at night for more coverage. Only the larges will work for me now.

    What an amazing diaper though. It is the most comfortable I have ever worn. Getting into one feels like snuggling up with a teddy bear. Absorbency was easily adequate for all night with no duo or quadro stuffer like I have to do with other Bambinos. So, if your experience is like mine you may save enough on the liner to pay the higher cost for the diaper. While dry nights are extremely rare for me I woke up this morning thinking I had one. I had certainly not but the diaper felt so dry.

    Thanks Bambino!

    It is nice to get a litle feed back to see that some people agree with me,
    Let’s hope that they will come out with something in between in size to match up
    what we need.
    For now I am still hooked on the Dry Care 24/7diaper in the meaium size.
    Those seem to fit me the best. But as I allways like to see what is allways avalable in style and funktion today I just ordered some Abeana 4163 Abri form Origonal X-Plus M4 diapers.
    I will test these out and see how good they fit, I still have 10 cases or so of the Dry Care diapers left and intend to use every one.
    I will let you know what I think as soon as I try them, You all take care.

    I can’t believe how much these will take. Incredible absorption. Bambino has really outdone themselves.

    Once I got my hands on some of the new Bambino diapers, I felt I had to test one to learn its practical limits. After wearing it for five hours, I decided to give it an overnight tryout. For added protection, I wrapped it with a cloth diaper and a diaper cover to contain any possible leaks. When I awoke in the morning, the cloth diaper was still bone dry, with not a trace of leakage from the Bambino. There also was no sign of any chaffing or rash, not even the red marks I often get from snugly fitted disposables. I didn’t change until after breakfast, when I had to shower and get on with my day. They could have called it the 16-hour diaper, ’cause that’s how long this one lasted for me, or maybe the Energizer diaper, ’cause I kept going, and going, and going… (Your mileage may vary.)

    I just got a case of these diapers today. Since I haven’t had time to give them a good test, I can tell by the thickness that they should do a very good job at holding what others here have attested to. The bulk does give that baby diaper feeling and the cute prints on the front definitely get my compliments. Only a couple things that I might drop points on. The tapes don’t seem to hold as well as some other diapers I have tried. Not a major holding problem but you do have to make sure they are fastened snuggly. I didn’t at first and had to reattach a couple of them. A single larger tape on each side would really be cute. The other thing is more of an opinion of mine and some might not agree. I like the glossy plastic diapers of the earlier years. Very few adult size diapers have them anymore.

    These are super comfy, ultra cute diapers and so much fun to wear! They fit differently from the Classicos so next time I think I’ll order both because I love the Classicos as well. I love the fit of the Classicos so I hope they don’t discontinue them. Bambino rocks, and can be purchased in Canada from B4NS.

    Good review. Fairly accurate. Only thing is that I would say the thickness of these is considerably thicker than the Abenas and Drycares. It’s not just a matter of centimeters, its in the width as well. I’ve worn M4s for years, and only recently stopped wearing them due to recent defects and Abenas threats of shopping their plastic backed lines. I did use the 24/7s a few times, but found that they tended to smell of ammonia really bad. << Never had that problem with other brands and it was bad enough for me to say, "never mind" on the Dry cares. I was very well hydrated, BTW. They just suck at odor control. The first Bambino I tried was this one. I agree with others that the sizing is a little small. I'm a 30" waist, so usually a medium fits me about right. However, I think I will get a large in these next time because I didn't like wheere the bottom tapes ended up. They came just past the bend point to get to a snug point and sometimes I had tapes pop off. The construction of the tapes Is my main gripe. They weren't attached nearly as well as other brands. Take a look at it before you even use it next time and you'll see that parts are already threatening to come loose. Which is why I recommend you go a size up, so you don't put so much strain on the tapes.

    So, all in all, probably one of the best you can get. I am yet to try the Ravines, but they also look promising. The price is just prohibitedly high for a poor chef like me, hehe.

    I have to say that I still prefer the Molicares. I have to be in them all day and need to be stealth about it. Molicares are quieter and still let me pee in them 6 times before I need to panic.
