Sometimes you see a cloth diaper come out and say to youself- “Hey! Why didn’t anyone think of this before?!” That is what I said to myself (talking to yourself is not a sign of insanity when you spend 95% of your day alone with little people and no adults) when I first saw the Swaddlebees One Size Simplex.
The reason I exclaimed this was because the One Size Simplex gives you the option to have stay dry microfleece or natural fibers against the baby’s skin! The tongue-style soaker is designed to either stuff inside of the pocket which leaves the baby’s skin next to birdseye cotton, or lay inside of the diaper which leaves a stay dry microfleece next to baby’s skin. So smart! Not everyone will think this is as cool as I do. That’s fine. I like having options, and options that don’t require buying multiple diapers. Speaking of options, this is a One Size diaper and should work with babies until they learn to use the potty.
The reason I picked the Swaddlebees One Size Simplex as a great diaper for daycare is that I know some parents prefer snaps all around. With only 4 snaps total and 2 per tab this is a manageable amount even for someone completely new to cloth diapers. With a little hands on demonstration it shouldn’t take more than one change for a teacher to learn the ropes. Thanks to that tongue-style insert (you know I love this style of diaper, right?) regardless of whether the insert has been laid in the diaper or stuffed in the pocket you won’t have to un-stuff it or touch the insert again before washing it. And rather than it being a thick, sewn in AIO, it will dry faster. It is also one of those diapers I love using and I think anyone looking for diapers that work well for daycare should also consider that the diapers they choose will get lots of use at home too.
Not related to how it works for daycare, but in general, another added benefit to the two linings is that when your baby approaches the age of potty training you can switch over to the natural fiber side (if you normally used stay dry) to teach them to recognize their wetness. Snapping diapers will also pull up and down pretty easily, and the Swaddlebees One Size Simplex will as well, for potty training at home or at daycare. If you want to learn more I’ve also reviewed this diaper.
