Ease of Use ✩✩✩ Side snapping diapers take longer to get used to than front closing diapers. Sometimes because of the shape of the baby it can be harder to close. Still, there are only 4 snaps total and you can leave the soakers snapping into the diaper when you wash. That essentially makes it an All-In-One in practice, though I would call it a Snap-in-One.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩ The Trim AIO runs 20.95 direct from the manufacturer. I think this price is worth paying for the super trimness you get without losing absorbency. Plus there are some super adorable prints to choose from!
Performance ✩✩✩✩ There were some leaks with the diaper. I would definitely consider it a “daytime” diaper for the level of absorbency it has. Without the hemp doubler I had leaks, but after adding it in this solved the problem. Sometimes side snapping diapers in general have a tendency to leak on the sides if the baby is sleeping that way, and this happened once for us as well. But it has happened with others, this isn’t an issue solely associated with this brand.
Fit ✩✩✩✩✩ This diaper looks amazing on! I feel this is the strong suit of the Trim AIO. It looks so sleek and trim. We tested the size 0 which fits 7-16 pounds. Everett was already towards the end of that range when the diaper arrived, and as it happens, he is JUST growing out of it now. Size 1 will fit babies the longest range of time, typical of the Medium diaper, and would be the best investment.
Overall- I loved using this diaper on Everett because it looked so great on him. I will readily admit I prefer diapers with middle closures but I am willing to use side snapping diapers when they give such a trim fit. He can wear some outfits with this diaper that won’t fit over his OS diapers. The soakers look a little wrinkled after being washed while snapped in, but this is nothing that concerns me. I would love to get a Medium which would last longer and fit both of my boys to have around for those skinny outfits!
