I first heard of Sweet Pea many months ago when they contacted me to do a review of their One Size Pocket. I loved that it was very economical! This time they asked me to review their new All in Three, which consists of a hemp soaker, a microfiber soaker, and a cover.
Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰ The All in Three by nature is a 2 step process. You have to take the soaker of choice and snap it in. In this case you have two anchor points, 1 at the front and 1 at rear of the diaper. The soaker snaps in those places, making it a total of 4 snaps. This can be done ahead of time. But, if you have multiple snap in soakers and use the cover over and over, you would have to snap the soaker in while changing the baby. Then you close the diaper, with 2 snaps to close. The scrunchy nature of the soaker can make finding the snaps difficult, but when you know where to look it becomes easier.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰ The AI3 retails for 18.95, which is a good Price point for a multi functioning diaper. Especially considering that it comes with a hemp soaker. You can buy bamboo from their website as well in addition.
Performance ✰✰✰✰ I would say this is a good system to use for daytime. While the soaker is absorbent enough, the fact that it just covers the middle strip might not bode as well for nights. I didn’t test it for overnight for that fact. Since my son sleeps all night (mostly) I didn’t want to run the risk of him waking up wet. If you want you can just use the microfiber soaker, or the hemp soaker, or both together.
Fit ✰✰✰ I happened to like the fit on my son. Though the middle was bulky with the hemp insert, the fit around his legs and back was good. The tabs cross over in a weird way, most cross over tabs have snaps farther back but these only have the two on each end. I don’t expect that this will fit a tiny newborn, but if it did I would only use the microfiber stay dry soaker to keep it less bulky. I do think it will fit a high weight range though.
Overall- I am not a huge fan of All in Twos or Threes since I love my pockets. If you need a diaper in this category it is a good price point, plus it comes in neat colors. I like that you can buy a bamboo insert for it as well.
