Swaddlebees Simplex Review


I placed an order with the wonderful Kelly's Closet for some diaper supplies I need mainly diaper ointment and detergent one time.  Well there was a coupon code for a freebie diaper.  I got a Swaddlebees Simplex one size diaper.  Little did I know that this diaper would leave me craving more of these.  If I could go back, I think I would comprise my stash entirely of this diaper and probably Grovias.

You can pull the attached soaker out and lay it on the diaper so it is a stay dry diaper.  Photo via Kelly's Closet

I love so many things about these diapers.  They are nearly as slim fitting as disposables.  You have the ability to stuff an extra insert in them which would make them more bulky of course.  But honestly I never have and haven't had a single leak ever with these diapers.  (I have not used them overnight though.  Not really sure why.  Probably because they are so cute I always reach for them during the day haha.  I will try them overnight next time they are clean and edit this post!)

My very favorite feature though is that you don't have to unstuff these diapers before throwing them in the wet bag.  The sewn on soaker (and any that is stuffed in the pocket) actually agitate out in the wash.  It has worked every single time.  I love not having to pull out smelly, wet inserts.  It has openings on both sides to make it easier to agitate out in the washer.  This diaper is an all in one with a pocket how cool is that?

The only cons I can really think of to this diaper is it is a bit pricier than some of the other pocket diapers.  But honestly, it is well worth it to me.  I love this diaper.  I want all the Swaddlebees ever.

Best picture you guys get.  He refused to show off his monkey butt.

  1. Hi! I found your blog via the Monday Link-up. I'm going to be cloth diapering for the first time as soon as my little one pops out. I'm so excited! I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts about cloth diapering.

  2. Hahah, love the pic. I will have to try this diaper out. I just started using cloth literally yesterday. I have Flips covers right now with the old-fashioned cotton rectangle diapers that you fold up. I like them so far but they are a bit bulky, especially for a 1 month old.


Thanks for leaving a comment! They really do make my day. I make every effort to reply to each and every comment.
