Mainstream America is missing out on cloth diapers. One big reason is the lack of cloth diapers that are sold in big box stores. Hopefully, this will continue to fill that void! I’m so excited that Gerber has come out with an updated version of their modern cloth diaper. Their new It’s a Snap One Size All in One is SUPER affordable and a great day time diaper option. And it’s sold at Walmart! Check it out!
When Gerber came out with their first attempt at a modern cloth diaper back in 2015, I was cautiously excited. I thought, “YAY! An actual cloth diaper that will be in front of everyday families”. Turns out that version still needed some work, a lot of work actually. I’m happy to say that it looks like Gerber listened to customer feedback and made some much needed improvements. The ‘It’s a Snap’ All in One is a good option for this price point.
I received diapers for review purposes. All opinions expressed are 100% honest and true.
The Gerber It’s a Snap All in One (AIO) is labeled to fit 8-30 lbs, but this depends on shape of baby. Some will fit longer, some less. It’s always nice to have a One Size that actually is truly birth to potty training. I really wish this diaper ran a bit larger. Most babies are heavier than 30 pounds when they potty train. Norah is almost 10 months old and 20 lbs and the size is adequate for now. She’s on the biggest rise already but still has a few waist snaps left. She isn’t walking yet so she will thin out some, as most babies do and then the diaper will likely have more space again. I’ll have to keep you posted with a future update on fit as she grows.
The outer is made of PUL. The attached inner says it’s a 100% cotton. The inner soaker forms a pocket. (See photo below.) It is not attached on the top or bottom. This allows you to add more inserts for additional absorbency if you need to. I recommend doing this as the inner attached soaker is not all that absorbent on its own.
The available Gerber It’s a Snap All in One 2-pack comes with two All in Ones, no included inserts. If you purchase the 3 piece starter kit, there are two included inserts and one AIO. This is the package I’d personally recommend (unless you have your own stash of inserts you can use to bump up the absorbency). There’s a small insert that measures 3.5″ x 10.5″ after washing. And a large that measures 4.25″ x 12.5″ after washing. I would say the small is adequate for newborns. Any babies older than that go ahead and use the large if you can still get a good fit. You’ll be glad for the extra absorbency. My absorbency tests show how the Gerber AIO and inserts stacked up against other cloth diapers on the market.
These are great as day diapers. With the added insert, you should be able to go around 2 hours on the average baby without a change. I would not recommend this as a nap or nighttime diaper.
Things I like…
- That it’s an all in one with a pocket. Makes it easy to add absorbency.
- The pocket opening at the ends of the attached insert are wide enough to make it easy to stuff (BIG PLUS FOR ME) and also the added inserts are able to come out easily in the wash.
- The snaps. I’m usually more of a hook and loop fan. But this was a good choice for Gerber. The first version had velcro that didn’t stay closed. No issues with the snaps.
- Double leg gussets. These are designed to hold poo in. A benefit is you are also able to get a good fit at the legs with minimal effort.
- Additional tummy and back PUL panel. Helps to prevent leaks due to wicking. Just make sure you tuck the inserts in under it when you put it on baby.
- Holds up ok in the wash. I’ve only been using it for a few months and the only things I noticed is one broken thread and just a tiny bit of pilling on the outer cover. I’ll update again after a longer usage period.
Something I might change…
- I’d still like to see more absorbency. Maybe use bamboo or hemp blend inners (instead of the synthetic material that the current booster is made of).
- Sized bigger. 30 pounds as a max is a pretty low threshold.
- Prints! This comes in four basic colors: blue, pink, orange, and sage. Great start, but I hope to see more. (photo courtesy gerber.com)
The 3-piece Starter Pack is priced at just $9.95 at walmart.com and $13.99 if you purchase directly from the Gerber website. For that price range, this is a solid choice. All in ones are easy to use and a great starting place if you are new to cloth. I’m so happy that Gerber heard what people were saying and made improvements. I hope they continue to grow their modern cloth diaper line.
Have you used this new version of the Gerber It’s a Snap All in One yet? What did you think?

Would live to try these out!!!
Tiana Swanson says
This is such a great review, I love when you can tell it’s an HONEST review for the sake of helping consumers rather than just to get more free products to review! Thanks for the review!
I like the price point a lot, especially for an AIO/pocket. I’m looking for something that will be good when my boy transitions to daycare and I don’t have the means to buy a bunch of expensive stuff. I am concerned with the low absorbency as he is a heavy wetter. I wonder if that’ll decrease as I introduce solids…. anyway, is certainly give it a shot!
Amber Delorme-Stubbs says
I really liked your Review, it was very thorough and it really answered all of the questions I myself would have asked before buying a New cloth-diaper which I’ve never tried before. ? I now would love to try the New Gerber Childrenswear AIO Cloth-Diaper.?
These look great! My son is not a heavy wetter by any means… we typically use just one 5 later cbi during the day, and add a hemp insert at night. Do you think he would get away with what comes as is?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
For days with the included inserts, yup you should be good.
Great price to try them. We use disposables at night and unfortunately pur daughter seems to have outgrown the ones we have and our baby is only 2 weeks old and still too small for our stash. It would be great to try something new!
That’s a good price, I can’t wait to try them!
I would definitely give them a shot!
Becki Richard says
I’d love to try them!
Rachael Whitehead says
Great review! It looks like a great deal, and I’d love to try them out.
I’ve been using cloth for just shy of a year, these are a great price point! I especially like the idea for someone just starting out with cloth. I agree with you, I’d love to see natural fiber soaker pads as an option or add in with these.
Stacey horning says
Wish they would go bigger for weight. And hopefully they will be sold in Canada also
Good review! I agree that having them more readily available might encourage some people to try cloth diapering.
N Martin says
I’d try these for the double leg gussets!
Great review! I’m very excited about the price point.
I am going to check these out.
Britney Tifft (Harris) says
This is one of the most thorough reviews I’ve read for this diaper. It truly helps a lot, thank you.
Lyndsi Boysen says
This review was so helpful! I was glad to read both the likes and dislikes! What a great pricepoint for a great product. I may be adding this to our baby registry!
Alyssa Alston says
Well written and thorough review!
Hanah Phillips says
Now that I’ve got two in cloth, these sound like a great affordable way to boost my stash until DD potty trains! It’s great to hear that they work well!
China B says
Thanks for this in-depth review! I would love to try these out for my little one. Love the double gussets and flaps in front and back!
Vicki W says
I love the double leg gussets! The price will make my hubby smile too. Can’t wait to try this on my new squish!
I’d love to see how these workout! Especiallly for that price. I’ve heard in the past the prefolds they make are useless.
Lois Noe says
I can not wait to try these!!! I think I am going to go get some today! Lol
Now to convince hubby! My daughter has been in need of new ones.
Thank you for reviewing these so thoroughly! I would like to try them, I have found that the double gusset at the legs usually helps prevent leaks on my little guy
Like that there is now a cheaper option at a big box store for cloth! I agree that they need more color options and prints. I did check it out on Wal-Mart’s site and it is nice that they make a “boy”, “girl”, and a neutral two pack.
I like how affordable they are even if they only work within such a small range.
Morana revel says
Looks like they are finally in the competition. I have found many Gerber products from small anyways, so these are not much different in that aspect.
Brenna sylvia says
I’m gonna really curious to see how well this works compare to the older style Velcro aio they had. Thank you for the review it was very informative.
Melissa Crosswhite says
I’m glad Gerber has come out with something that will be sold in retail stores so more people will cloth diaper. I think it is a bit expensive and I don’t understand how it is an all in one but has an insert you must use. I thought all in ones had all the stuff sewn inside already?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
The soaker pad is attached to the diaper on two sides, just not the top and bottom. You don’t HAVE to use the inserts. If you have a light wetter, the AIO itself might be sufficient. It’s just more absorbency with the extra insert.
Thank you for this review I always wondered how this hold .. I have a pretty much big baby 30 pound approx at 1 year …
Krys Schmink says
I would like to give them a try
Brittany Brandenburg says
Thanks for the review! I’m looking forward to trying it. I’m a FTM and it’ll be my first experience with cloth so I’ll be trying out all kinds of brands and styles until I find what I like best for my LO due in October.
Kelly Hennebaul says
Really glad they updated their last version and have it at a great price range. I hope selling at Walmart will make cloth more mainstream and with the great price allow people who are curious jump in and try it! I agree with the weight my son is 2.5 and def needs a diaper that goes to 35lbs.
Lauren Hankins says
I’m so happy they revised the design! I remember hearing about them when we started cloth with our first, and heard nothing but bad things when I was really hoping they would succeed at opening people’s eyes to modern cloth diapers.
Amanda joosten says
Wow thats a fabulous price. I know in the long run its cheaper to cloth diaper but sometimes people dont always have that 100 or 200 ro start cause honestly tp get a good routine going.. Which wash is a huge part of it.. And u need about atleast 15 to get u thru a “good” wash routine and still be able to have some while washing. With thus price u could have 30 of them for 100 and be set!! This is pwrfect only thing that would make it better would be prints.
Amazing review as always!!
I’d say it’s worth a try for the price.
Cloth diapers at Walmart, how convenient!! It’s awesome to see cloth becoming more mainstream :)
very interested in trying!
Isabel Whited says
It’s good to see a an AIO that could entice more families to try cloth. I would love to see patterns and inserts with more absorbency.
Angela Hawkins says
Seems like a good deal! Hopefully they come out with more color/print options!
I wish these would work for nighttime! The price is great.
Tammy Elizabeth says
I might try these!
The price is definitely right with these! Hopefully it allows more families to try (and succeed) with cloth diapers. I wish there were more colors available and maybe some cute patterns. I also wish they had more natural fiber options available as inserts. I’ve had problems with microfiber in the past and am hesitant to buy more diapers with it.
They look awesome wish they came in more options though(: still really cite and I’m interested in trying them (:
Elisha Santana says
How did these do overnight for you? We struggle cloth diapering at night, always have leaking issues.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
As I mentioned in the post. I do not recommend these for nights.
When I first saw this diaper for sale from Gerber, I have to say I did have my doubts. I’m really excited to try it out though!!
Amanda H. says
Thorough review! Answered my questions. It would be nice to see these in store.
Staci Morton says
I wouldn’t mind giving these a try. ? It would be nice if they came in a couple more color options though!
I love this diaper, i really like it, A+ for Gerber
Interesting! Seems like an easy CD to try out, especially if they hold up long term
Great review, will give it a try
$9.95 is a great deal for 3 cloths!! And happy to hear that they’re in mainstream stores, too! We make too much garbage as it is, so the more cloth diapers = less disposables piling up in garbage dumps = better/cleaner/healthier environment!
Plus Gerber’s baby clothes are very soft and good quality, and I’ve been using them since my baby was born, so I’m sure their quality on their cloth diapers is good, too!
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Make sure it’s the new It’s a snap version!
Joan Gramm says
I’m new to CDing, so this review was very helpful! I actually overlooked ther Gerber CDs on Amazon the other day, I’ll be adding them to my registery now :)
I love the fact they will be more easily attainable at places such as Wal-Mart now too!
Wendi H says
Sounds like a big improvement from the old ones
Kirstin McLendon says
I’m all about the AIO! These look totally awesome and I’d love to get the chance to try them.
Liz Harvey says
These look similar to fuzzibunz, I’m excited to hear more reviews! Gerber has definitely come a long ways! And so has modern cloth
Amanda Lea says
This looks like a big improvement! Thanks for the review, may have to try them out.
Def will try! And only $10!!!!!! Wow hopefully more ppl gets the courage to try the fluff and leave disposables behind
Jennifer Cation says
Great, honest review ? really makes me want to give these a try
They’re seriously only $10? I hope my Walmart gets these. I want to try them out now!
Dandi D says
I am interested to try these, but I too hope they soon have more colors/prints.
Danika Coggins says
Is this going to be sold in walmart stores? I hope it is the price is great but I agree they need to get adventurous and have patterns available.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
I’m not sure. You’d have to check directly with the store.
Haylee H. says
These sound great and at a great price!
kristin shelby says
wow, this is a big step if they’re stoked in store at walmarts!! i agree, we need some prints and more colors. i’m so glad i came across this review, i would have never known about these! way to go gerber!
Amanda A. says
I have looked at these on Walmart.com but have been reticent to try them. Glad to have read this review. I would love to win so I can try them out.
Callie Hanks says
I’d love to try these! I agree they need prints because who doesn’t love an adorable printed fluff butt?
Hannah Gallaher says
I love the price of these, will definitely be making a trip into Walmart today. I’m just getting into cloth diapering so this may be a good start, thank you!
Maria Arnaudova says
I usually prefer natural.fabrics, but I would still love to be able to try these out. I also think they could beneffit from adding more prints :)
I love reading about the many diapers there’s out there. I’m doing cloth diaper with my 2nd baby & I love how you broke everything so nice n Simple for me to get an idea of the diaper! Thank you!?
Brenda B. says
I bought the sized aplix diapers 2 years ago for my sister. She didn’t use them that much. No bother because I can store them until I have kids. I am now partial to one sized snap diapers so this is a plus.
Love hearing of new options to try! Thanks for reviewing these!
So excited to try these! Thanks for your honest review. I had the original and loved the fit. Can’t wait to see how this AIO works for us!
Tara Peterson says
These are super cute! We’re new to cloth diapering (used disposable with first 2 kiddos), it seems overwhelming at first with so many brands I’m not even sure where to start! We’re expecting in December and I’d like to have a stash started so we can do this CD adventure! These seem to be a decent price, I always worry about the absorption though. Thank you for the chance!!
Tina Langit says
I wanna try this for our next baby coming in 3mos. ?
I like that is AIO with pocket and double gussets are a must! Nice colors.
Would love to try them out.
Honestly I didn’t even knew that Gerber is on nappies now…
I like the blog, helps me. Seeking often :)
Jason Bohan says
The wife wants to try them. They look cute
Dawna Coniglio says
I’d definitely be willing to give them a try! It’s nice to have some cloth diapers in the big box stores.
Katrina Taddeo says
Long standing brand is finally making a catch up in the modern cloth era.
The price sounds amazing!! Love how detailed your review
Aly Schwartz says
Great for a tight budget. I’ll be trying these!
Amber Weller says
Ive had my eye on these since my son was little! I’m glad they redid them to make them better, as the old reviews were what kept us from buying!
Wow that’s a great price. Makes it affordable for almost anyone. And a great segway for someone interested in cloth who wants to give it a try but is too intimidated by prefolds and covers.
I’d love to give these a try.
Cynthia Zepeda says
Cannot wait to try these out, this review has been so helpful.
Amanda Harvey says
I love that gerber redid their diapers! All I ever have seen from them is the prefolds that are not good as diapers. Can’t wait to try these!
Maria F. says
Looking forward to the new design
Allie Reno says
This looks like a good redu for gerber! Will have to try one out when baby comes!
Sara Phillips says
I would love to try these out. We don’t have any AIOs in our stash and these seem like an affordable option!
Amanda H says
I would love to try these with my baby girl!
Double leg gussets!! I only have one AIO and I love it (little man is wearing it now), but it does not have those amazing double leg gussets.
I think that’s awesome hopefully they’ll carry in stores so it’ll be more accessible to people who want to try cloth diapers but not have the funds to buy the more expensive brands or even intrigue one’s who would never have thought about cloth diapers.
Veronica Bohan says
I have a budget of zero but want to try these so bad
Veronique b says
It like really good diapers! Hope there more dry , not too humid after pee
Amy Kennedy says
I’m excited to look these new versions over and give them a try! Thanks for the chance and review! ?
The price sounds amazing, but I have to ask is that American dollars? I haven’t seen any cloth diapers in our local Walmart but I live in rural Ontario so that may be why.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Yup, USD. Also that is the online price. Not sure if it’s in stores or for how much.
Jessica Lynn says
I love how honest your review is! Gerber definitely made major improvements from their original release! I love the snaps! It also seems way more affordable than some of the other brands I have been researching! Gerber is also a well known and trusted name in the baby world, so I hope that this means more people will get into cloth diapering!
Wow! They look like other brands that I love (for smart design and comfort). Also? Hello great price!!!
Liking the double leg gussets!
Sarah Davison says
I had no idea that Gerber made AIOs! So cool that cloth is becoming more prevalent!
Jessica Palomino says
I love diapers like this with lots of snaps.
Kym M says
Wow looks a lot better than before. Can’t wait to try!
Jennifer Reinhardt says
It really is!! Thank goodness ;)
I like that they have some gender neutral colors.
This is awesome! Can’t wait to check them out ??
Shawna rowe says
30lbs scares me i have big babies at 1 year old my boy weighs 26lbs. Definitely need to make it bigger!!!
Hannah Stedge says
Pretty affordable! They look worth checking out!
Looks good I would definetly try them!
Additional inserts would be wonderful. I’ve never tried the original Gerbers but am not much on solid colors so pretty prints would catch my eye better. I also noticed that I didn’t see any hip snaps. I have had a couple like that and hated them because the wings drop. Do these seem to stay up?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
So far they do. I agree hip snaps are nice, but this seems to fit fine without.
Savannaha Bridges says
Can’t wait to try them. Love your review. ?
So cool if they are as good as they sound!
Ashley C. says
This version looks very functional and useful. The review is very helpful I will definitely consider trying these.
Pat F says
Great review on the diapers! Great catchy name for the review as well! TY
Love the price point!
Erica P. says
I really hope this product proves more functional than the last– between the brand name and the price, it has great potential to help bring cloth back into the mainstream, which would be a boon for parents and the environment alike.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
It’s leaps and bounds better than the original. It had to be. ;)
