I’m so lucky to be a product tester for so many great brands. Today’s review is for a newer Canadian cloth diapering brand called “Easy Peasies” – like my favourite saying “easy peasy, lemon squeezy!”
I was provided with a diaper for the purposes of this review, but as always, my opinions are unbiased and my own!
The Easy Peasies AIO is an “all in one” cloth diaper – meaning that everything you need is all in one piece. It’s like the cloth equivalent of a disposable diaper, except you don’t throw it away at the end! It has a waterproof outer made of PUL, the inside is lined with super soft fleece (the softest in our collection!), and the absorbent middle is made of microfiber. Only the soft fleece touches baby, and inner gussets and soft ruffly elastics keep messes in! It’s also one-size (which we love), and is adjustable down to the tiniest newborn and up to toddlers.
From the brand:
“The perfect blend of ease of use and one size function. This All in one diaper is the trimmest AIO on the market. With a waterproof outer layer, absorbency built right in and easy to use sizing, it was voted Best Daycare Diaper and most preferred by moms for its bulk-free look.Made in Canada”
About $23 for the diaper and insert. This is a one-size diaper, so you don’t have to buy additional sizes, and because it’s an all-in-one, you don’t have to buy separate covers or inserts!
Easy Peasies (EP) is a Canadian-made cloth diaper company based out of Stanley, New Brunswick. I have found that the owner, Jessica Mackenzie, is always available to answer any questions related to her products or cloth diapering. This company has very pleasant customer service and a good warranty on their products. Easy Peasies also offers pocket diapers (my favourite!), newborn diapers, and an assortment of other baby products.
The materials used in these diapers just blows me away. The fleece is the softest I’ve met in a cloth diaper, the PUL is wonderfully stretchy, and the elastics leave no red marks WHATSOEVER. Woot!
MADE IN CANADA
These diapers are made in Alberta from Canadian materials, Easy Peasies is based on the East Coast, in New Brunswick.
RUFFLED LEG ELASTICS
Gentle ruffled leg elastics don’t leave red marks on our baby’s sensitive skin, but keep messes in, and not on our baby, us, or the furniture!
Seriously – this is the BEST fitting diaper we’ve tried. The wings stretch softly and easily across baby, wrapping and snapping kind of like a bandaid feeling. Does that make sense? Because of this soft, snug fit, liquid poop is contained without the need for additional ruffled elastics at the waist (which I found dug into my baby’s belly in other brands). It’s seriously the perfect waist! The crotch is super super trim between baby’s legs, as narrow as a version 1.0 Charlie Banana or V.2 fuzzi bunz elite (circa 2011). That’s like crazy narrow. 🙂
SOFT INNER GUSSET
Easy Peasies diapers have a soft fleece inner gusset that acts as a first barrier for messes (but trust me, those leg and back ruffles are holding it IN). I’ve tried double-gusset pockets before and the gusset was really hard (like who wants to sit on a bumpy diaper??), but these are soft and comfy for baby.
EP has a great selection of modern colours, with new ones added regularly. I love their “mint”!
It’s one-size. That means we only have to buy one set (24-36 for a full stash) for our baby, not one set for every size!
It’s one-size. This also means that if we have two children in diapers at the same time, we can adjust the diapers quickly to suit the baby being changed. Snap snap! On the newborn! Unsnap! On the toddler!
Pocket diapers that use adjustable elastics inside (like Fuzzi Bunz or Charlie Banana) would not be transferable in this way. You’d have to get a set per child.
This all-in-one diaper does include an additional microfiber booster in the purchase price. This booster is useful for heavy wetters or nap time.
ENOUGH FOR OUR HEAVY WETTER
This really should be proceeded with a surprised face emoticon! Our heaviest of heavy wetting toddler can last an hour in this all-in-one (without booster), and two hours + with the booster! Most all-in-ones or “regular absorbency” diapers she obliterates within minutes.
TRIM + CUTE
These diapers are REALLY trim. “Trim” is a subjective word in the cloth diapering world (I know there are people who would describe a leading pocket as trim, yet said pocket is bigger than an old-school fitted they describe as “enormous” – go figure), but these EP all-in-ones are slim between the legs, and don’t give a sticking out silhouette of “shelf butt” like some brands.
Nothing so far! These are great for the diaper bag or caregivers! I have also found that they dry very quickly in the dryer, compared to other all-in-ones (i.e. one cycle). Some people prefer natural fibers for inserts (myself included), but since we switched to Tide for our second daughter, we haven’t had any issues with microfiber or synthetics at all, so I wouldn’t let that stop me from recommending these. They have the exact same fit as the Easy Peasies pocket diapers, which we adore.
Would I recommend these to others?
Would I recommend someone to make a whole stash of just these?
Yes, because they are trim, comfy for baby, absorbent, and they come with an additional booster for increasing absorbency. These all-in-ones would be great for daycare, daddies, or other caregivers!
