Here is a review/comparison for the new Bambino Diapers vs. Bambino Teddies.
To begin with, the taping panel is smoother and stick A LOT better then the Bambino Teddies'. The new Bambino print is quite colorful and offer different characters and other images to give it a unique look. They are getting more creative with their prints.
I'm not sure if you can distinguish the difference in this photo, but the plastic backing is definitely different from the teddies. The New diaper is a more textured than the Teddies. I can't really say if one crinkles more than the other, I can't really tell the difference.
From this picture the New Diaper looks thicker, but, its not really noticeably thicker from what I can tell. When I squeeze the padding I really can't tell the difference at all.
Now we can start to see some differences when the two are opened up (sorry for the glasses lol)
First of all, the padding in the front and back is quite wider giving more expanded absorbency.
You can see that the New Diaper has a better fitting system by seeing that it pulls towards the center. The Teddies Diaper seems to just lay flat out.
The front panel of the New Diaper is shorter, and you don't have that excess plastic below the taping panel around the front part of your legs allowing a little more comfort when walking.
Another major difference between these diapers is that the tapes are closer together lowering the top tape some. It helps to fit the diaper better in my opinion. I always had trouble a bit with getting the tapes to fit without the gap on the back/side panel in between the two tapes. I couldn't make the bottom tape fit right because it was so low.

They have greatly improved the leg band to help give a better fit around the legs and helps the diaper feel more snug all around and had no trouble with leaking at all. It was tighter and stretched a lot more the the Teddies did. See how the New Diaper has 4 elastics instead of 3. and it looks like it has more bubbles for farther stretching and snugger fit.
Also the leak guards have been improved. Remember how it seemed like the leak guards were glued to the diaper lining? And you would have to pull/stretch on it to make the leak guards usable? This diaper doesn't have that problem at all. The leak guards are the same height still.

The New diaper has a wider crotch area which I love, a little more bulk down there.
It also has a softer inner liner making it more heavenly to wear. It's really not much thicker than the other Bambino Diapers at all, I really can't tell the difference.
The absorbency is definitely superior. I had quite a few voids in it and failed to completely soak it after about 13 hours of wear. I wet it with a full bladder and I have a pretty big bladder and it soaked it right up. Then I went to sleep and woke up 7 hours with another full bladder and wet it in a few long squirts until I was empty while laying down testing how it absorbed while laying down and it didn't leak at all. I couldn't make enough urine to test it before I had to take it off. It absorbed more than other Bambino Diapers with a Quadro pad in it. The padding didn't fall apart after tossing and turning while sleeping or walking. It bulks up nicely as well.
It is more comfortable to wear than other Bambino Diapers in my opinion. And for the price, its great. The thickness fooled me and I thought It wouldn't hold much more than a regular Bambino, but boy was I wrong. I say give it a try and Great Job to the Bottom Half Group for making a mighty fine diaper!
Another quick note is that the address label on the boxes no longer say Bottom Half Group... It says "Shipping Warehouse" and that's it along with their phone number and address. Even more discreet shipping for us. They also put plenty of tape on the box so no one can try to sneak peak
If you have some other questions I will try to answer them if I can.
