And as I have mentioned many times before, the advantage of a tongue style, all-in-one insert is that it is quick drying and doesn’t require any stuffing or un-stuffing. The downside is that BMs may be a little messier to clean up as they get caught under and around the edges of the insert. A diaper sprayer or good rinse should solve this issue for most people, but it is a point I always like to bring up about this style of insert.
All in all this diaper fit well, had decent absorption for it’s trimness, and is easy to use. Although I am a big fan of natural fibers I do like to have a stay dry material against my daughter’s skin (especially at naptime and overnight) and these diapers would require a stay dry lining if that is your preference; however, if you change these diapers more frequently to keep your little one’s bottom nice and dry, there are definitely perks to cottons and other natural fabrics.
Overall Rating: 8.5
Overall Fit: 8.5
Closure Style: Snaps, two on each side, vertical, angled “backwards” (Velcro closures also available).
Ease of Use: 9
Absorption/Inserts: The tongue-style AIO insert is pretty absorbent for its trimness, but heavier wetters and toddlers may need a doubler for naptime.
Materials Used: PUL, cotton flannel and terry.
Pocket Opening: None
Waist: Good adjustability, although the angling of the snaps are different than other diapers and will take some getting used to.
Thighs: Leg casings are soft and un-channeled to avoid leaving red marks on baby’s thighs. The thigh or hip snap is angled differently than most diapers, allowing for more room to grow in the thighs. Although, it takes some practice to get used to it I liked that it had more room for growth in the thighs, since that is where my daughter always outgrows diapers first.
Casing/ Elastic Style: Unchanneled.
