I had heard of Mother-ease Cloth Diapers online, on one message board or another and decided to check them out! When I was offered the opportunity to try out the items in the Small Sandy's Introductory Offer, I was excited to see how it would hold up on Mr. Tiny Man and his super pee powers!
Included was a Small Sandy's diaper, a Small Sandy's absorbent liner and an Air Flow Snap Cover. I decided to put this on him for nap time, as a pretty ultimate test in our house! (As usual, I apologize for the not-so-wonderful pictures, the flash didn't do a very good job on these and the room was semi-dark in preparation for nap time!)
As you can see, the fit is nice and trim, I really like that, especially now that he's trying to become more and more mobile. The diaper went on VERY easily, we've never used a side snap style before and I have to say, I think it fits better than a front snap or Aplix closure! We got the small size, it fits babies from 8-20 pounds, which is AMAZING in my eyes! It's basically a small and a medium all wrapped up in one diaper.
It fits great on his legs, he doesn't have huge chunker legs, but he's certainly not completely chicken-legged like his big brother ;) This is a bit of a more close up view of the side snaps, they don't bother him and seem to help the diaper fit along his belly better.
I think I got the cover a little big...I chose a medium because that would fit him in weight, but he doesn't fit into it quite right yet. It's just a little bulky, it seems to be a great cover as far as helping keep his bed dry! I like that the cover allows air to move around (thanks to the double side snaps) and doesn't seal the wetness to his skin. His skin can breathe because the air can get in and circulate a bit without him going coverless. This is great in the summer when skin can be so sensitive to heat!
We went an entire 2 hour nap with no leaks, he was wet when he got up and the diaper was pretty heavy! That's a good thing because it means it managed to absorb it all (it holds 15 oz of liquid! Not many diapers give an actual absorbency amount). We've been very happy with this diaper and I definitely want to recommend it to you, I really think it's worth checking out if you have the chance!
