I recently purchased my first Mother-ease Cloth Diaper for review. Mother-ease is a Canadian based company that has been around since 1991.
My initial inspection concluded that the size “large” is going to last us a while. The sizes run a little big, but I am not complaining! I am looking forward to using this diaper for a long time to come.
The diaper is more of a traditional (aka old school) design. It is very simplistic, and also very easy to use.
For my review, I purchased a Rikki Wrap, size large in the “Asia” print. The wrap is a light, nice thin polyurethane laminate applied to polyester wrap with Aplix tabs.
They also have the fabulous leg gussets I just recently became acquainted with. Man, those things are so cool and nice to have on a diaper!
The Sandy’s system is a terry cloth material with an extra layer of terry sewn in between. Therefore, it’s a diaper, with extra padding.
The diaper is the largest of all diapers we own, though, it is comparable to my size two Thirsties. It is a tad bulky. Rayanna walked a little funny in this diaper when I put it on before bed (excuse me while I giggle again -hehe), but it is a fantastic night diaper.
We have had no leaks at night in this diaper. I think that is one of the biggest factors in determining what diaper to use, don’t you?
We have gotten to the point with Rayanna that we are using between three and four inserts to make it all night without a bed and clothing change, so a good diaper that can hold her nightly “gift” to us, is a huge bonus.
With our Rikki Wrap, we received a Sandy’s system large white diaper, and a Sandy’s liner.
I really like the Mother-ease Cloth Diapers Sandy’s system because it is a nice diaper with no plastic lining to wear when Rayanna is rashy, which he has had another bad one this week and the doctor ended up prescribing a cream for it. But, I put this on one day not thinking of the liner because it is so thick and has built-in absorbancy. It was not enough and he peed through it almost immediately. Completely my fault, but I think it’s good to know.
The plus to this system is how much padding it naturally has. The downfall is that it takes longer to dry hanging or in the dryer.
I wouldn’t want to use these diapers all of the time, just because it was a little more challenging for Rayanna to get up and down off of her little “Zebra toy”, but I definitely like having one on hand for an overnighter. I would certainly recommend giving Mother-ease a try and adding one to your collection of “fluff”.
As you can see here, there seems to be a little gap when he moves. One might think this would be a problem, but with the Sandy’s system being such a good padder underneath, and less movement in bed at night, it hasn’t.
Mother-ease Cloth Diapers has offered one of my lucky readers a Sandy’s System. Thank you so much Mother-ease Cloth Diapers! I am thrilled to share your product, and I am sure my readers are thankful for this opportunity also!
