You know what I am not a fan of? That big fluffy BULGE of a cloth diaper poking out of the jeans (but what I dislike even more is a disposable diaper poking out of jeans….not so cute*). So I am in LOVE with how the Peachy Green Sprout Up One Size Cloth Diaper fits right up against the back. It looks incredible. When I want to show off a cloth diaper in public, this is one of my favorite ones to grab.
So in this post, I want to share with you my own experiences with using this diaper on my two little ones. I have an 18 month old and a 2 1/2 year old and we have used the diaper for several months now. Both kids are of normal build (maybe a little skinny) and are normal to heavy wetters. My toddler is short for her age.
The diaper is one size, which means it is meant to fit your baby from birth to potty training (8-35 pounds, according to Peachy Green).
The outside of the cover is made of PUL that is made in the USA and comes in a variety of really cute prints.
You adjust the sizing using the snap down rise in the front. Snap it all the way down for the smallest setting, on the middle row for a medium setting, or have it all the way unsnapped for the largest setting.
The insert (called a “soaker” with this brand) is made out of bamboo fleece. To adjust the sizing on the insert, you snap the soaker down to the smallest setting, middle setting, or large setting and then snap into the diaper. One issue I did find is that this insert kept getting tangled in the wash, so whenever I had to fold the laundry, I had to unsnap it and get the twists out.
The diaper is side-snapping, and that combined with the great elasticity across the back made this a great potty training diaper. My daughter could easily pull the diaper up and down when going to the bathroom (which is something that can’t be said for many of our “one size” diapers).
You can also adjust the sizing of how the diaper fits around the waist and legs. There are five different rows–what is nice about this is if you have a baby with chunkier thighs, you can have a larger setting on one row, and then the top row can be a little tighter for the small waist. Or if your baby has a larger waist, but skinny thighs, you can do the opposite.
The diaper is an all in two diaper, which means that you may be able to reuse the soaker multiple times, just snap out the soiled soaker and snap in a new one. Since the inside of the cover is not wipeable, I personally did not find this to work as an all in two diaper for my little ones (however, please note that my kids are between normal and heavy wetters). The inside of the cover is made of microfleece, so it does resist wetness a little more than other more absorbent fabrics, but definitely not as much as other fabrics commonly used in some all in twos and covers (such as PUL). I did try airing it out between changes, but found that it just carried the pee smell a bit too much.
The thing that impressed me the most was the trim, narrow fit. This makes me think that this might be a great choice for skinny babies in particular. As I said before, what I was most impressed by was how well it fit on the upper back of the diaper, so you don’t have a diaper poking out of the top of jeans.
I was also VERY impressed with the fit across the stomach. It really fit both of my children well there.
So here are my ratings…
Some notes on my ratings: I put “3″ for being worth the price, simply because it became a $25 all in one for me. BUT, if you are able to use it as an all in two (let’s say you have a light to normal wetter), then it may be more worth the price for you. Similar thing goes for recommending to a friend. I don’t recommend it to a friend much for being an all in two. However, if I had a friend looking for a trim diaper that fits well under jeans, I would definitely recommend this. It is also worth noting that the diaper is made in the US and with fabrics from the US.
I did have some issues with it being difficult to put on, simply because each parts of the soaker wanted to go in different directions, so it was hard to keep it all in place while trying to put it on my wiggly guy. I also found that the inside of the diaper tended to roll outward. (Comment from company: This is deliberate to cushion the leg elastic. The lining shouldn’t be rolled in. With a microfleece inner, it has no affect on leaking.)
Price: $19.95 for the cover, 2 pack of inserts is $18.95

Peachy Green Diapers provided this diaper for a sneak peek, but it did not influence the opinions in this post. They also provided some of the images in this post.
*If you know me well, you know I am not a big disposable diaper hater. In fact, I occasionally use some. So please don’t take this as me sposie-bashing. It’s just that I think a cute print would look so much better than the little weird paper up the pant look that disposable diapers have.
