Sweet Pea Diapers has recently launched a new all-in-two style diaper, which they call an all-in-three, because of they have the option of a natural fiber or stay-dry insert that can also be used simultaneously for added absorption or a stay dry feeling for baby. The PUL is noticeably stretchier than many other brands, so these really move with your little one, and they are highly adjustable in the rise and waist. I also love that, like the one size diaper, there is a loop in the back of the diaper that makes line drying a breeze!
I reviewed a proto-type of sorts for this diaper and my only constructive criticisms have been resolved in the final version that has launched. The inserts snap directly on to the diaper shell and only use 1 snap on each side rather than 2, which keeps from any tugging of the snaps on larger toddlers and makes switching the inserts out even faster. The combination of the hemp and stay-dry microterry inserts for a good combination of absorption and a drier bottom, and can be used separately at different ages or for different preferences.
I will note that the review below reflects my experience with the proto-type diaper, but takes the updates of the final version into consideration. I am assuming from my experience with their other products that the updates resolved the small improvements I thought would make the diaper more user-friendly and have a better fit on a range of different babies. Again, the changes made from my version were the number of snaps securing the inserts, and the insert snapping directly to the PUL cover.
