My Review:
I was given the opportunity to review one of Smart Snugs new SimpleSnug All-In-2 (AI2) diaper cover and 6-Layer Bamboo Cotton w/ Gusset.



SimpleSnug AI2 Cover ($14.99):
  • The double gussets prevent and leakage and provide a great fit. They also keep the insert in place.
  • The super soft moisture-wicking micro fleece pockets in the front and back of the diaper keep the insert in place and keeps baby dry around the stomach and back.
  • The cover can be used with any of Smart Snugs five insert options. Available in stay-dry and feel damp designs to fit your specific needs. 
  • Water-proof backed inserts keep the cover dry and this allows for multiple uses of the cover between changes.
  • There is no stuffing needed. Simply press the insert into the cover, put the diaper on baby, and go!
  • The waterproof PUL cover prevents leaks.
  • Adjustable rise system allows the diaper to fit babies from 8 to 35 pounds.
  • Overlapping and adjustable waist snaps allow a customized fit.
  • Hip snaps ensure a secure fit round babies leg and prevents "wing droop"
  • Gussets shape the insert to create a more natural fit on the baby while concealing liquids.
  • The extra large size provides an unbeatable protection. 
  • Two layers of bamboo cotton soak up the liquids while preventing odors and bacteria at the same time. Three more layers of microfiber soak up liquids.
  • There is a bottom layer of waterproof PUL that keeps liquids concealed and allows you to re-use cover.
  • Insert can be used in you Smart Snugs AI2 diaper or with a Smart Snugs pocket diaper. The insert can also be used in your pocket diaper or on top of the fleece if you wish to reuse your cover and just switch out inserts.

Here are some pictures of my youngest wearing his Smart Snug diaper. Well, diaper cover and gusset insert. When I received the diaper in the mail, I was pretty excited. Yes, I get excited of fluff, lol. My first impression on the cover and the insert was curiosity. This is my second diaper cover and the one that I currently have is eh... It's convenient to have, but it doesn't do so well. I can say that it does the job for the most part. The gusset insert interested me when I seen it because I have never seen an insert like the Smart Snugs insert before. I'm so used to using microfiber inserts, lol. The insert is pretty thick, well with 6 layers, of course it's going to be thick.

After I washed the cover and insert, I put them on my youngest and it fits great. It looks a bit baggy in the butt area as you can see in the picture above. The elastic on the side of the diaper, thigh area, is not tight nor is it to loose. I have this thing where I have to check the elastic to make sure it's not cutting off any circulation to my youngest leg or his back, lol. The one thing I love about the cover is that the elastic is covered and is not showing. Well, what I mean is that it's pretty much double layered around the legs. The cover I mentioned that I think is eh doesn't have this "feature" on it and when it's full of liquids or the other stuff, it oozes out sometimes.

Your probably thinking "omg... that is so nasty!" lol. Well with cloth diapering, ya never know what's going to happen with them. They are all different. Anyways, thats that cover, but as for the Smart Snug cover, it works a hell of a lot better! I used the gusset insert that came with the cover and after a few hours or so, nothing leaked. To be honest, I think my son could have worn the diaper a bit longer because the insert wasn't even that soaked, lol. Oh! Another thing I noticed between the Smart Snugs cover and insert compared to the other cover I have is that the insert does stay in place with the Smart Snugs cover.
I don't know if it's because of the PUL on the bottom of the insert, but the insert did not move at all. I was surprised to see that it stayed in place. Normally when I use a cover, I add a long insert into the cover and about an hour later, the things bunched up and moved. It could be the material or the fact that I'm not using any prefolds, lol.

All in all, the Smart Snugs diaper is a wonderful diaper!

  1. Their diapers may work great, but their customer service is TERRIBLE. After they falsely advertised on their website, and I didn't get what I was told I was getting, I went through hell with them today, "Michael" specifically, I will never be ordering from them again. ******* BUYER BEWARE *******

    1. I'm sorry to hear that happened to you. From what I experience, everything seemed to go well. But, I did not purchase anything, so that could be why I didn't notice anything. They do have great diapers, but as for their customer service, I can't really say how they are since we only spoke for a bit through email. I hope everything went well after the purchase and again, I am sorry to hear that.
