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!
