The Hiney Lineys Versa is an Updated, Accessorized Version of the Original You Love ~Plus~ #Giveaway (2/3)

When I had the opportunity to review the original Hiney Lineys Sized All-in-Three system it was clear it was the perfect solution for families to put their prefolds to good use as inserts. Or another way of thinking of the system was as a cover for prefolds or other inserts with a snap-in stay dry lining option. The snap in liner was one of thoes things that I had thought of in my head as a future invention I needed to tackle if it did not come to pass, but I was relieved after this original review to see that there was a product on the market much like I had envisioned.

Fast forward almost two years later and we have the new Hiney Lineys Versa, which still offers the snap-in stay dry liner but has some nice improvements. First of all, the sizing system has been updated so that there are less covers and liners to purchase. The one size cover fits from 12-35 pounds and may be the only cover you will need through potty training, but a newborn and big kid version is also available. The newborn size would be an affordable way to cloth diaper your newborn with newborn prefolds, but still have the stay dry layer against their bottom.

Another new accessory of the Versa is a soaker can be snapped onto the liner to make it an all-in-two diaper. Snap the liner off with the insert attached, pop a new one on and have a much better contained version of an all-in-two thanks to the stay dry liner. One of my personal peeves for all-in-two style diapers is cleaning #2’s that go “overboard” and soil the cover. The Hiney Liney Versa offers a better solution to try and avoid those messes since their liners cover the majority of the inner surface area. The inserts are made of either Zorb II which I received or soft Indian cotton which is clearly a nod to the prefolds most commonly associated with the Hiney Lineys cover.

Affordability:
$$-$$$$

Cost:
$16.95/per cover, $4.95/liner, and snap-in inserts start at $4.95. The cost can be a little deceiving here, because it seems expensive if you only buy one cover, insert and/or liner. Although they can be used without a liner as a cover over a prefold, for example, all of the other products are meant to be used as a system with a 3:1 or 4:1 ration of covers to liners.

  70. That I would become obsessed with cloth diapers! I can’t stop talking about them. I mean, its diapers, right? WRONG! So much more than that.

  78. Maria Ivey says:

    The most surprising thing is how addictive it is!

  79. The biggest surprise, honestly, is how many opinions people have about how we want to diaper our child. Literally nobody other than my younger sister is helpful or supportive in my family (except my husband). Most of them are like “oh well you’ll give that up once the baby comes.. the thought of dealing with poop and laundry will make you crazy.” Ugh.

  80. The biggest surprise was how ADDICTED I became!!

    ~Terri

  81. The biggest surprise to me, is how easy it is! :)

  82. My biggest surprise was having to deal with stripping them. I had no idea about biofilm and detergent buildup so when mine started repelling I had to do some research to figure out what the heck was going on.

  83. I have continuously been interested in Hiney Lineys…They are continuously on my list.
