The velour interior is softer than fleece and stays that way even if you hang your diaper up to dry. (Which is something that I like to do because it saves energy and prolongs the life of your diapers). It wicks moisture well.
The insert is the smallest one-size insert that I have ever seen and would certainly be small enough to use on most newborns. Seeing how small it was, I had to wonder whether it would work for an older child so I tested it on my 2 year old daughter. It passed the test with flying colours! (Given that it's made of bamboo, I shouldn't have doubted.)
This diaper has a snap-down front and therefore I would be cautious about recommending it for infants with skinny legs. However, for infants with average to chunky thighs this would be an excellent, affordable diaper.
On a completely frivolous and fun note, some colour options offer a different (from white) colour on the inside of the diaper. After 2 years of changing diapers, I have to say that it's nice to have a bit of variety of colour to look at when doing a diaper change.
