Ease of Use ✰✰✰
I always take a star away from snap diapers, for the simple fact that snaps make putting diapers on harder than velcro. But, I prefer snaps. That said, I had to give the Sweet Pea 3 stars because of the front pocket opening. It took some getting used to. When putting the diaper on, you need to roll it in to make sure you don’t get any leaks, or that the microfiber is poking up at the top, which could transfer wetness to your baby’s clothing. Once you get that figured out, you will be ok!
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰
This diaper has an attractive price point at 15.95. This is 2 dollars less than the leading pocket diaper. You get two inserts, which is pretty standard with one size pockets. You do get two nice features, the double open pocket, and the tab in the back for hanging your diaper shell to dry. The pocket openings allow for the inserts to agitate out, and it works! It is a cute diaper, and it has some great color options.
I had some leaking while using this diaper overnight. I had to add another insert, basically triple stuffing the diaper. There is enough room to triple stuff it, but I can’t say this is the best overnight diaper. It works great for daytime use, and naps. I will say upfront that I do not like pocket diapers for overnight, I prefer fitteds and covers. I have just had too many mornings with wet sheets due to leaks with all pocket diapers, not just this one.
The lack of cross over tabs makes for 3 stars, otherwise it would have gotten a 4 or 5. The 3 step rise is great, but without cross over tabs you cannot fit the waist of a very small baby. But, once your baby can fit this diaper in the waist, you will have no problems. I think the legs would fit just about any size thighs since you have the option to tighten the thigh snaps tighter than the waist.
***Overall- I do like this diaper, but some diapers take a little to get used to. Once you get the hang of the snaps, and rolling in the front pocket, you have yourself a nice one size pocket diaper for an extremely affordable price (13.95 US and 15.95 Canadian). I have yet to find a perfect diaper. Trust me, you will all be the first to know when I do! But if you are looking for a nice, well made, inexpensive, one size pocket diaper, find a store online and pick one up. Or, request that they be sold in your favorite online retailer. I know Sweet Pea Diapers would love to be in more US shops, so let’s help her out!
I watched the video and really like how simple you made it. The green grass back ground really makes your little guy and the diaper stand out. That was a great idea. Keeps it very clean looking and lastly it was short and to the point. I actually found a few things interesting in the video for sure. The laundry hook and the front opening also. Its great that you pointed out specialty features that some parents are looking for in a diaper. 🙂

I appreciate the honesty in your reviews. They are straight forward, informative and well scripted.
I think your reviews are great. I love that you are honest and will say when you don’t like something. You have an adorable model too of course : ) I like seeing the way the diaper actually fits a baby. You are always very descriptive..I can think of anything I dislike. I would love to see you review prefolds and covers. Also I would love to see reviews on diapers made especially for night time.
I like that you are not afraid to tell us the negatives about the diapers. I’ve bought some different ones that I thought would be good, since all I read was positve feedback. I appreciate a good negative comment now and again! 🙂

I loved your video- it was awesome! What a clever idea as an addition to your reviews.
I would like to see a button on your sidebar for following you on blogger. I would also like to see a twitter button on your sidebar. I also didnt see a “subscribe” button so i could subscribe via e-mail?? Maybe i missed them, so if they are visible, maybe make them easier to find. ( i hate giving criticism…now i feel bad)
I like how you show how the diaper fits. And you give pros and cons. Really like the honesty.

I love video reviews so you can see how the product REALLY works! & of course I love your honestly sorry I cant criticize you! :p
The video was simple and to the point. I like that you are honest and don’t just give complete positive review. You give your real opinion. The lighting was nice and the outside grass setting looked good. At the beginning it was a bit shaky, but worked out better later. Your little guy looked way cute in the diaper. It was great to see on a baby and knowing his weight made it easy to compare with my baby and what it might fit like on him.
I loved the video review. I did find I had to turn the volume way up to hear it. And I’d love to see you as well in the videos! But I get it can be hard to video yourself, especially if you’re the one holding the camera!

I love your video review, and I love that you put your son in it! But, I’d love to see you put the diaper on (this can be done with a doll, if necessary, but it would help see what you mean by “you need to roll the front opening down.”

I really like your video so I hope your not offended! I love how you are really informative and honest about what you think of the diaper. However I think you sound a little scripted…maybe be more relaxed about it or something? Like if you were telling your best friend about the diaper. Anyway that’s my 2 cents 😛
I think your video reviews are very informative. I’m new to cloth diapers and I’m paranoid about leaks, so I would love more info about where the diapers leak (I understand this is very baby dependent!). It would also be nice to see compare the small/large snapping configurations for the AIO diapers. Cute baby, btw! 🙂
I love that you not only show the good about a diaper, you also discuss the negative aspects. I feel like I’m watching/reading an honest review and not just someone trying to be nice. It’s very helpful. I really can’t think of anything you need to improve on. Oh! I’m always interested in hearing how trim the diaper is! Thanks for the great reviews.
Your product is not one that is reccomendable!
Can you elaborate? If you have an opinion and it helps future buyers you should review the cover on clothdiaperfinder.com
