Snap-EZ Review performed by Kristen.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰ at 13.49 at Dapa Diapers for a seconds version of the Snap-EZ you don’t get an insert. Inserts will run a couple dollars, depending on which type you choose. This is still cheaper than a new pocket diaper so you are getting a great working product for a reasonable price.
Overall- I was really happy with it. I had never tried fleece before and was skeptical and nervous but it proved that it will hold us as well as any of my other diapers and I like that it allows her a little more air than her other diapers. It was super cute and i bet it would be warm for winter as well. It seems to me that it has a lot of the advantages of wool, without the hassle of lanolizing….so it gets a thumbs up from me!
Monkey Doodlez Fitted performed by Kim.
Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰✰ It doesn’t get much easier than a fitted with a velcro closure. To put the diaper on it goes on just like a disposable. When you remove the diaper you do have to secure the laundry tabs, but this is not a bother at all.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰✰ The Monkey Doodlez Basic fitted from Dapa Diapers runs 9.99! That is what I call a good deal! You do get what you pay for, the diaper cannot be used overnight alone (at least for me), but it is perfect for daytime, especially since it is pretty trim!
Performance ✰✰✰ Like I said, the diaper is more of a daytime diaper than overnight. We had a leak with it at night. During the day it works just fine. The worst part about it is that when you dry it it takes a long time. The soaker is sewn down so it will take at least 2 dry cycles. I like to let mine air dry after the first cycle.
Fit ✰✰✰✰ The Medium which I tried fit pretty well, but the rise was pretty high on my son. Depending on what kind of cover you use this could be problematic. The legs were plenty tight on him, and since the waist uses velcro it fit very well.
Overall- the Monkey Doodlez basic fitted it just that, basic. it is a no frills economical way to use cloth diapers on your baby. Because it is flannel it will start pilling when you wash it, since that is how flannel wears. This diaper was a second, but I never saw a flaw on it. I would suggest these for knocking around the house with a wool or PUL cover.
