There simply isn’t enough time to try every cloth diaper on the market. So how do I decide which cloth diaper I will put to the test each week?
One way is a WAHM asks me to. That’s a no-brainer! I love reviewing products for hard working WAHMs.
Another way to reel me in is excessive raves on cloth diaper message boards like diaperswappers. SposoEasy cloth diapers have had their run of good feedback over the last 6 months. Rave after rave, mamas were singing the praises of SposoEasy’s simplicity and trimness.
So I finally took the bait and bought a 5-pack (you get a 5% discount when you buy 5 or more and I am not one to pass up a sale ;) ). I chose 3 black and 2 brown. I like that SposoEasy offers something different than pastels!
When I got the diapers I looked them over thoroughly and this is what I found:
1) simple, trim, quick-dry soaker, natural cotton fibers inner
2) tabs are cheap looking and appear that they may start to unravel with heavy use.
3) laundry tabs are difficult to reach. the “pocket” the laundry tabs are in is very flimsy
After prepping them and using them several times I came to these conclusions:
1) SposoEasy diapers are very easy to use. Trim. Suitable absorbency for every 2 hour diaper changes.
2) Aplix closures allow for a really good fit because of the cross-over tabs. The snap version does not have cross-over therefore I would not buy them for a child on the low end of the size.
3) I had problems with the top of the diaper leaking on Sterling’s clothes. I talked to my husband about whether or not I should point his p**is down (don’t laugh! I don’t know about those things!) and he said go ahead. Once I did this I have not had any leak problems.
4) Adding a doubler allows me to use SposoEasy cloth diapers for longer periods if we are in the car or out for a while.
5) SposoEasy cloth diapers dry as quick as the pockets and inserts I have. I have cloth diapers that need 2 cycles and it is nice to be able to grab a SposoEasy out of the dryer when I’m in a rush.
6) They are perfect diaper bag diapers!
I would recommend SposoEasy All In One cloth diapers to someone looking for an easy transition, day care/babysitter diaper, or a stash of all-in-ones. At ~$18/ea this is a good price for an all-in-one.

Can we just use the word p*nis, please? I am also having trouble with sposos leaking. could the way they are laundered affect this?

Hey, Jess! We certainly could use the “real word” if there weren’t so many sickos out there searching innocent blogs like this for those words! Crazy. We call a part by it’s name in this house! sposoeasys did leak with Sterling if I left him in it for a while (which I tend to do). Because they are simple cotton for absorbency they aren’t going to hold as much as microfiber, hemp or bamboo. You could try adding a doubler.

Just a note – DS1 always had leaks out of the legs and we had to make sure and straighten his p**is every time. With DS2 I just do it automatically. I also found when he was new that the tops of diapers were wet – all the bulk of folding down and what not was forcing the p**is up! With boys you do have to pay attention to where that little bugger is, or you’ll have leaks – they just aim the urine straight where they’re pointing!
Well, I’m glad that you had an enjoyable experience with them. I’m thinking about buying a size small to try out before I give up on Sposo’s all together. I’m so tired of leakage from my toddler and the way the quick dry soaker bunches in the front. I really don’t like having to change their outfits multiple times in a day–I’m lazy, lol.

Nancy, SposoEasy’s may begin bunching up on Sterling when he starts crawling. Right now the soaker doesn’t move. I have had bunching-up problems before w/ Haven and Paisley so I know what you’re talking about. It is irritating. Remember though that different cloth diapers work for different kiddos and different phases.
