Two size and all-in-two diapers are becoming more and more popular and the iCandy diaper is one with that fits both of these categories and has a few unique features that stand out from the crowd. The first thing you will notice are her designer cotton prints, which are adorable, trendy and soft. The second is the snap-in PUL liner that serves as the waterproof layer, but can be switched out or wiped clean when it gets soiled, so the outer shell can be reused. This allows you to have your cake and eat it too, as designer prints and specialty fabrics can often cost a pretty penny for pocket or fitted style diapers. And the all-in-two system allows for both luxury and frugality in one diapering system.
The iCandy is available in an infant and toddler size, but they do not have adjustable rises within each size. The elasticized back and front hug to baby’s body, while giving them room to wiggle and the generous crossover snaps allow a large range of adjustability in the waist or thighs. The insert was absorbent and it’s leak-free guarantee held up to it’s promise, but I wish that the insert tucked into the liner more securely. It still performed well, but changing wiggly babies would be much easier if it had a snugger fit into the liner. I also noticed I needed to snap this diaper tighter than our other diapers or else it started to sag down her bottom, because of the generous give of the elastic in the back.
Also note that because the outer layer is cotton, it will soften over time like the cotton of a quilt would, and won’t have that same brand new look PUL outer layers keep for longer periods of time. These are a great economical choice to make a two size diaper even more affordable with the all-in-two design, and are a good option if you’re looking for posh prints for you little one to sport in style.
