Performance Review:

Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥♥ - This diaper is pretty easy to use as far as cloth diapers go.  Yes, there are snaps on the wings, but there are only two snaps per wing which I really appreciate with my wiggly toddler.  I'm also a fan of the snap down rise.  It really makes rise changes quick and easy (especially if you have two in cloth that are different sizes).  I like that the insert snaps in, and although the insert is a snake style insert I still like it.  I'm usually not a fan of snake style because I hate the hassle of folding, but this one is just the right length so all I do is fold it in half, lay the doubler on top, and put it in my diaper basket so it's ready to go come diaper change time.  It doesn't take any longer to put on than any other petal soaker.  Now, this may not be true if your baby is smaller though.  I'm guessing there would be more folding involved.

Adjustability & Fit: ♥♥♥♥♥ -  I really like the adjustability of this diaper.  The rise has 4 settings and the wings have crossover snaps.  I also love that when the baby is smaller, I can just remove the long snake soaker and just use the lay in soaker for a trimmer fit.  The legs get pretty small too, so I can see how this would fit a smaller baby well.  That being said, this diaper does not have separate waist and hip snaps, so you can not adjust them differently if your child has legs that are extremely large or extremely thin for their waist size.  Luckily we didn't have a problem.  The wings did curl a bit while wearing the diaper, but it does not affect the function.

Leak Protection: ♥♥♥♥ - I was actually pretty surprised by the leak protection of this diaper.  I generally try to steer clear of cloth diapers that have hidden PUL and cotton on top.  I just find that they usually wick a lot more than diapers that do not have cotton on top.  Anyways, this diaper didn't seem to wick any faster than those that are completely PUL on the outside.  I think it lasted about 3 hours on average.  It's by no means a nighttime diaper, but great for the day.  Linc also had a massive wet poo in this diaper and nothing escaped!  Bonus! *Please note: This is an All-In-Two diaper and no additional diaper cover is needed*

Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥ - Wash routine is fairly easy for this diaper.  I separate the shell from the soaker and throw them in the wash.  When they come out of the wash the soakers go in the dryer and the shell gets laid out to dry.  I like that the soaker is in two parts and the main soaker long, so that they get much cleaner than a bulky soaker and dry a lot faster too.  When everything is dry I just snap the soaker in, fold it in half, lay the doubler on top, wrap it all up, and it's ready to go.  You do have to spend the time to pair the soakers back up with the diaper and put it all back together, but I still find it's way faster than a pocket diaper.

Bang For The Buck: ♥♥♥♥♥ - This is a SERIOUSLY AWESOME  price!!!  A diaper this cute for this price, that works this well is totally rare.

Quality & Durability: ♥♥♥♥ - So far the quality and durability of this diaper seems great!  All the seams look straight and the materials look to be of a nice quality.  I really like the feel and look of the soakers too.  They didn't curl, bunch, or get wavy after repeated washes.  All the snaps worked, but a few could have snapped a bit more securely.  What can I say?  I'm a stickler when it comes to snaps working perfectly.

The Look: ♥♥♥♥ - Super cute!!!!!  I love wing to wing designs where there is one fabric on the wings and back, with another fabric on the front and between the legs.  It gives a nice contrast and she's chosen very nice colors.  I even love the interior lining color as well as the attention to detail she's put into the snaps.  My only complaint is that the wings tend to curl a bit while on.  It doesn't bother me that much.  It's just something I noticed.  Oh, I also am not keen on the white thread over brown PUL.  I wish she would have changed thread color.

In Conclusion:
I would totally recommend these diapers!  They're super cute, they work great, and they're available at an awesome price!!!  What more could you possibly want?

  16. They are so cute and are made a little different than what I have used so I am thinking they might just hold better than what I am use to, from the sounds of it.

  25. These diapers are very cute. I love minky interiors - so soft and more resistant to stains, and the idea that it's an AI2 is awesome! Plus, the price is right! Thanks for the detailed review! ~Celeste

    ReplyDelete
  61. These are adorable! I know what you mean about the cotton wicking, i'm glad it doesn't wick, because i am a sucker for the wing to wing design. Great review, and it doesn't like the price it perfect too!
