Are you in the market for some high-quality, hard-working pocket diapers and trainers that will last for years and keep your little ones cute and comfortable in the process? I want to introduce you to the great lady behind Snap-EZ diapering products. Ruth is a WAHM who is mother to 12 children who range in age from baby to adult (she has been cloth diapering for 25 years!!). She also home schools on top of all this and is dedicated to providing high quality and friendly service to each and every customer. Her entire line of Snap-EZ products was developed based on the old adage that “necessity is the mother of invention.”
With the exception of the snaps, hemp fleece and elastic used in her products, the Snap-EZ line is USA-made! You can learn more about Ruth’s family-run business, and see pictures of her beautiful children on the Snap-EZ Story page. Ruth has been a joy to work with from the beginning, and I’m very eager to tell you about her cloth diapering products!
She sent us this cute little lavender infant-sized pocket diaper for Susanna and a celery AIO trainer for Samuel:
The Infant-Sized Pocket Diaper:
I liked the double snaps on the waist tabs right off; there was no need to line up and fasten an extra hip snap to keep this diaper snug and secure. Another neat feature: there is a little bit of elastic in the front of the waist – not just at the back. You know how even the best-fitting diaper can “cut” into a baby’s waist when they are sitting up or bending over? The little bit of stretch in the front elastic offers some extra give and comfort. I’ve never tried another pocket diaper that has this feature.
I really love how this diaper fits on Susanna; it’s trim across the front and there’s no gaping at the waist or around her legs. The color-coordinated snaps make these pockets extra cute! For inserts, we used 1 microfiber in the daytime and 2 at night. I can also stuff a prefold in there with no problem; the pocket is really roomy.
I honestly could not find one fault with our Snap-EZ pocket. It’s already one that I reach for constantly.
Here are the colors you can choose from for pocket diapers:
The AIO Training Pants:
Ruth sells AIO trainers, Stuffable trainers with pockets and all-cotton “Natural” trainers. Since Samuel has just started potty-training I opted to review the AIO since it has a waterproof outer and a trim fit. Ruth’s stuffable trainers would be ideal if you are looking for a versatile solution for both day and night protection, or if your potty learner is a heavy-wetter. The Natural cotton trainers are great for little ones who are just about done with training and need something that will catch the occasional accident.
Here’s a diagram of the AIO trainer opened up. It’s PUL on the outside with a custom-milled cotton velour inner which allows your child to feel wet. There’s a 4-layer cotton velour soaker inside and the trainer is trimmed out with soft fold over elastic.
Samuel was kind of between sizes, so I ordered up one to make sure it would last us through training since he’s only now beginning. So the fit is a little bit roomy, but still cute and very comfy for Sam. The style of the Snap-EZ trainers makes them very easy to pull up and down and this is so important in potty training because you want them to be able to do this part themselves or they are not really potty trained! Because of the side-snapping design the trainers are easy to take off and clean when Samuel has a #2 accident. When he wets once, we haven’t had any leaks.
As for drying time, because of the built-in soaker, it’s kind of in the middle. It takes longer than a pocket trainer, but not as long as thicker and bulkier trainers on the market. Overall, I’m very pleased with our Snap-EZ trainer. It’s well-made, performs just as I hoped it would and the leg/waist bindings are soft and comfortable. Samuel knows it’s not a “diaper” because of the way it pulls up and down like underwear. I reinforce this by having him stand up every time we put on the Snap-EZ trainer.
If there were only two suggestions I could offer to improve the trainer, I would love to see PUL prints to the line-up because most young children love to have pictures on their “big boy” and “big girl” pants for extra fun and motivation. Also, less fullness in the rear would be nice for a trimmer fit.
You will be amazed at the range of sizes that Snap-EZ offers. There are pocket diapers to fit infants all the way up to adults with special needs and waist sizes ranging from 30 – 46 inches! Look over the size range page to see all the options. Trainers are available in infant, toddler and youth sizes.
I also like that Snap-EZ sells WAHM-made inserts, which allow you to customize absorbency according to your child’s needs. They have (a) four layer cotton/poly velour soakers which start at $5 and (b) bifold or trifold hemp/cotton fleece inserts which start at $8 and offer as many as 6 layers of highly absorbent fabric. Any of the Snap-EZ inserts will work inside the pocket diapers and stuffable trainers.
And there’s more! At the Snap-EZ store you’ll also find velour wipes, wet bags and pail liners, G-tube pads for special needs family members and “Allen’s Naturally” laundry products. And coming soon: nursing pads and feminine pads at special introductory prices!
