Snap-Ez Cloth diaper Review and Giveaway!


I have heard nothing but great things about Snap-Ez products, so I was excited when they agreed to send me one of their cloth diapers for review!

The Story of Snap-Ez, from their site:

"Snap-EZ ™ diapers, trainers and accessories are the result of
"necessity is the mother of invention."

I needed to reduce our cost of living and that meant going back to the drudgery of cloth diapers. UGH! But there was a surprise in store for me. The cloth diapers of today are nothing like the cloth diapers of even 5 years ago.

In the summer of 2004, I was introduced to the new "PUL Pockets" by a dear friend and I was hooked. With these converting from disposable to cloth came with ease! The only problem was that I could not afford to buy enough (even 2 was more than I could afford!).

So, I began making them. They turned out so well that I decided that I could go beyond saving money by doing cloth diapers, to making money by manufacturing and selling them!
And presto! Another SAHM magically became a WAHM! And you are the beneficiary!"


So Who makes the Snap-Ez Diapers?
"At this time Snap-EZ ™ products are handmade by Ruth and 10 or so WAHMs, as well as a a DD and a college student who helps with snapping/stocking/cutting and shipping!!.
By personally training my seamstresses, we are able to maintain a high standard of product manufacturing so you can rely on us to give you the quality product you have come to expect from Snap-EZ ™ Inc"


Snap Ez sent me their new Eco One Size Pocket Diaper to review, which Fits approximately 8 - 28 pounds! It has 4 different rise adjustments, which is one more than most one size diapers! This diaper is made from PUL and a high quality microfleece. They also only use Lastin (latex free swimwear elastic) in Snap-EZ diapers. This was developed for salt water swimwear, and is so durable that they back their elastic with a 2 year replacement warranty!
The Lastin is at the back (on both sides of the pocket), in the front, and around the legs to create a great fitting diaper. The Lastin is sewn into hidden serged seams creating very soft,
comfortable leg and tummy hugs.



This diaper fit Jack great! It didn't come with a soaker pad, so I used one I already had, but I didn't have any leaks, and the fit was great without being too tight. I love the little bit of elastic at the front of the diaper that helps prevent any gaping.



Want to get one for yourself? Head over to Snap-Ez and check out all their great products!

Or, you can win! Ruth has generously offered one reader a $20 gift certificate to Snap-Ez!

When you used the word "soaker," I had no idea what you were talking about since I am new to cloth diapers. That is what I went searching for on the site and found that they are inserts to help avoid leakage.
