Easy Peasies newborn diaper
We are cloth diapering our twins – and good thing too – we’re saving $14-$20 a DAY in disposables!  I was sent two newborn all-in-one diapers to try out from a newer Canadian cloth diapering brand called “Easy Peasies,” and I’m happy to share our thoughts here.  I was provided with a diaper for the purposes of this review, but as always, my opinions are unbiased and my own!

Easy Peasies newborn diaper


The Easy Peasies newborn 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 2 layers of microfiber and 2 layers of hemp. Only the soft fleece touches baby, and inner gussets and soft ruffly elastics keep messes in! It’s designed to fit babies 4-15 lbs and includes a pocket opening for adding a booster for more absorbency (if needed).

From the brand:
“Like many disposable diapers, our newborn diaper offers you an umbilical cut-out that snaps down and then back up when your baby no longer needs it. We made this diaper with preemies in mind by adding an extra crossover snap on the hip that allows you to get an even tinier waist fit and also serves as a means to tuck, and roll the dirty diaper up, containing all the mess. Two snaps on either hip allows you to get a nice fit, every time.”

About $15.99 for the diaper. This is a all-in-one diaper, so you don’t have to buy additional covers or inserts, but you will need a separate stash of diapers for when your baby outgrows these ones.

pin - the company

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!), swim diapers, and an assortment of other baby products.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS DIAPER

WELL-MADE
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 keep messes in, and not on our baby, us, or the furniture!

AMAZING FIT
The wings are soft and stretchy, the ruffled leg elastics are soft for baby. The crotch is  trim between baby’s legs – this diaper gives a MUCH trimmer fit than Applecheeks size 1 (which we used and did not like on our second child- though we did love size 2). The umbilical cord snap-down was useful when the babies hadn’t lost their cord clamps.

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. They didn’t stain, even from newborn poop!

COLOURS

EP has a great selection of modern colours, with new ones added regularly. I love their “mint” and “jewel”!

SEMI-ADJUSTABLE ABSORBENCY
This all-in-one diaper does include a pocket diaper opening in the back for adding a booster (sold separately) to increase absorbency.

TRIM + CUTE
These diapers are REALLY trim. “Trim” is a subjective word in the cloth diapering world, but these EP all-in-ones are slim between the legs, and I really like that in a pocket diaper.

pin - don

Although these diapers did fit our babies from birth (smallest baby was 6lbs,8oz), they are the very last settings at 12lbs (2 months old). I don’t think they will make it to 15lbs, as advertised. We did find that our twins outgrew the absorbency before outgrowing the diaper, but we did not add a booster, which would have solved this problem.

check verdict

Would I recommend these to others?

Absolutely!

Would I recommend someone to make a whole stash of just these?
I would recommend grabbing some for your diaper bag, for sure, though I personally prefer more cost effective diapers for bulking up a newborn stash. They are very cute and would be perfect for portraits.  These all-in-ones would be great for daycare, daddies, or other caregivers!

We had actually inquired/looked at least 10 or more newborn photographers before deciding to go with Alexandra and we are glad we picked her! We were originally only going to do the newborn shoot but later decided to do the maternity shoot as well. In the beginning we were a little worried about the maternity shoot as to what to do, or what to wear, etc, but Alexandra provided all the guidance and clothing as well. She made the photo shoots so easy and fun! After we got the photos back we were amazed at how gorgeous they turned out and were so happy!

CLIENT REVEW

“Matt and I wanted to send along our thanks to you for a wonderful experience at your studio getting newborn pictures for our little Aubrey!

You are absolutely amazing with babies – she was so content and comfortable the whole time and we could not be happier with the result.

Your studio and props are second to none and the experience for the parents was also fantastic. It was so comfy and warm in your studio – Matt and I joked that we should have had a nap while you worked your magic!

We will most certainly come to you again for future photo needs and we’ll tell our friends about you because it was worth every penny! The memories and photos will last a lifetime!

Lastly, I have to thank you for the cd of way more pictures than we expected! One of the reasons I was so keen to hire you is because you give a cd of all the beautiful pictures to the clients after – I love that they are ours now to enjoy!

Thank you again and we look forward to crossing paths in the future 🙂
