Heidi sent me this cute flower print to review. It is a size medium side snapping diaper, with a weight range of 14-30 lbs. There are a lot of really adorable prints to choose from at Jelly Bean Baby. She really finds some great unique prints!
You can see in this picture above that there are two snaps on the back of the diaper. These are what hold the insert in place on the inside. Whether you use the diaper as a pocket or as an all in two, you can snap it into the back of the diaper and not have to worry about it scooting around inside.
The inner of the diaper is suedecloth to provide a stay dry feeling, so if you need stay dry fabrics against your baby's skin, using this as a pocket is a great option. Heidi told me that as of April 1 she is switching to microfleece as the default inner fabric, with suedecloth as the optional choice. I really like when shops have a choice of inner material, because some families have sensitivities to one or the other.
The insert is made from Zorb II on top and hemp terry cloth on the bottom. If you choose to use the diaper as an all in two, then it will look like the picture above when the insert is all snapped in. The suedecloth flap at the back goes over top of part of the soaker when it is snapped in.
You can see here where the snaps are located under the back flap. One thing that I discovered with this diaper was that if I left the soaker snapped into the diaper, then the whole diaper turned inside out in the wash. It's not a huge issue with the diaper; I have just had to be mindful of not forgetting to unsnap it.
You can see in this picture the nice trim fit we got with this diaper. The soaker is not terribly thick, though it is very absorbent, which is a great thing for creating a trim diaper.
I really like this print on Ava, and have really enjoyed how trim this diaper is underneath clothes. You can see in this next picture that even in the front, this diaper has a nice smooth fit. Ava still has chunky thighs with a skinny little waist, so I did have a little trouble finding the right fit at first. I think she just happens to be right in between the tightest and second tightest waist snap sizes, which is not a fault of the diaper at all. I just choose to err on the side of being a little tight. So you can see here I have the legs on a looser snap than the waist.
Overall this diaper has worked well for us. Aside from Ava's skinny waist, we have gotten a good fit with it. The insert's absorbency and the cute prints are the big selling points for me. I love finding a shop with really unique prints available! The only issue that I could see coming up would be if I had this diaper on a smaller baby who had runnier poops. In that case, the large back flap would make me nervous, since you have to get under it to unsnap the insert. Thankfully for us, Ava is just past the crazy runny poops so I didn't have to worry about it.
