We received the one size Sweet Pea Pocket in Polka Dot. The diaper is so cute, I even had moms asking me about it on Facebook when they saw pictures. It is a nice brown color featuring orange, purple, white and turquoise polka dots. I love Kaleb in purple as does hubby so the purple accent really makes the diaper pop. I had not heard of Sweet Pea Diapers so I was excited to have the chance to test one out. Unlike many one size diapers this one only has two rows of adjustment snaps so you might not be able to get it as small as some, but I found it fit Kaleb quite nicely on the medium setting (second row of rise snaps). I also love that it has a double row of snaps with crossover snaps. It arrived with two microfiber inserts, a small and a large which is always a bonus. This way when it is on the smaller setting you can easily stuff it without additional bulk (some diapers come with a one size insert which can be bulky snapped down on a small baby) or you can use it as a doubler on the middle and large settings.
As I have touched on before I just love diapers that have a pocket in both the front and back. Making for easy stuffing of double inserts, especially with larger hands. Also makes removing an insert that much easier, without worry of being covered in poop. The added bonus with this diaper is because of the large double pocket the insert can agitate out while in the wash. We haven’t tried this yet because our washer is not the greatest and I am just so worried it might not be able to come out and I would end up having a diaper not fully clean. If we had a better washer I would have to take that for a test run. We put this diaper to the major test with it’s first use, we double stuffed it and tested it out over night! Kaleb slept for around 6 hours in it and only woke because he was hungry so we decided to change him, but I really think if he had slept through it easily could have made the entire night.
I am always very worried about the fit on Kaleb’s thighs. We’ve had several diapers that despite being one-size and his being around 20lbs the leg opening will still gap too much and he ends up leaking all over the place. The leg fit on the Sweet Pea was nice and snug without leaving marks from being too tight. The leg elastic had a nice fit while having a nice stretch to it, which made for a great fit. I can easily see him having this diaper in rotation until potty training because even on the medium setting with his thighs getting chunky it still had a good amount of room to grow into before we would have to move up the size. Kaleb gives the leg fit a very happy fist bump and a smile.
Kaleb is on the second row of snaps (picture to the right) which leaves one more size for him to grow into. Currently (at his appointment back in December) he is roughly 19lbs and 25″ long and on the smallest waist snap setting before using the crossovers. This has a great fit and will easily grow with him for some time. If he is anything like Kaylee he might be around 35lbs by the time he turns 3, which with any luck he will be potty trained before even reaching the max weight on the diaper. However because of his build and perhaps many other babies I could easily see this diaper fitting up to 40-45lbs.
This print is so cute and it is the first time I have seen one like it. Several people asked about who made it because they just loved the color scheme and the polka dots. They also offer some other cute prints and vibrant colors which you can see on their Facebook page.
