Today I'm going to tell you all about the Swaddlebees Simplex All in One cloth diaper. This diaper has a lot of features that are different from the other cloth diapers I've tried. Aside from the great prints that they offer (print shown is Blooms) the also feature a few features that make cloth diapering moms happy.
- 10 layers of 100% cotton birdseye fabric in the wet zone
- Attached stay-dry microfleece layer on the soaker pad
- Front and back pockets
- Great Prints
- Fits 12-35 lbs
The first thing you will notice about the Swaddlebees Cloth Diaper is the inside liner is 100% Cotton. Most diaper has a synthetic fiber such as fleece. Some mothers prefer having cotton on their babies skin due to rashes or sensitivity. My baby on the other hand doesn't like the feeling of being wet which is the downside of cotton. I doesn't wick away moisture the same way microfibers and fleece do. But the insert of this diaper is unique because you can flip it out and one side has a fleece lining for those that prefer it to regular cotton.
The Simplex has a cotton soaker sewn into the inside of the diaper as well as an attached insert the is another layer of cotton and a stay dry fleece. It can be stuffed into the diaper or layer flat on the outside.
It has two openings, the regular one in the back and in the front. The opening in the front allows for the attached insert to come out during the agitation in the washing machine. Same thing goes if you decided to add another layer. You don't have to worry about touching soaked inserts you just toss the diaper in whole.
All in all this is a great diaper if you are looking for something easy. Placing the insert inside it quick, and cleaning is a breeze because you can just throw it in without worrying about the mess. If your baby's skin is sensitive and you prefer cotton to synthetic fibers this is also a great choice. The risers in the from make this diaper an All-in-One choice so you don't have to buy a different size as your baby grows.
