Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle Review

 

Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle Review

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.

About a year ago, The Heir went through a whole phase (months long I might add) where he would say “Easy peasy lemon squeezy!” and then laugh maniacally over and over and over again. I’d actually managed to forget about that phase until King Dad brought it up just the other day. It’s funny how things that seem impossible to forget at the time can slip away as new memories are made with our little ones. What’s that got to do with cloth diapers? Well, I’ve recently had the opportunity to try out an Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle from Cozybums, and although I don’t laugh maniacally every time I say the name, I can tell you that it’s a diaper I won’t soon forget. Canadian made, a nice narrow fit, and a supremely soft bamboo trifold insert are rolled into one lovely cloth diapering system from Easy Peasies. It’s just arriving in store at Cozybums for the very first time, and it’s one diaper that I think is worthy of your attention. Cozybums is a wonderful cloth diaper retailer in my home province (British Columbia), and they take Canadian made products seriously! You’ll find an excellent selection of cloth diapers at Cozybums, and if Canadian made is a priority for you, they make it easier than ever to shop with a whole section of the online store dedicated to products that are made in Canada. So without further ado, let me tell you what I think of the Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle, and why I think you’re going to love it! 

Details:

Easy Peasies is a Canadian cloth diaper company based out of New Brunswick (that’s on the East coast for those of you that aren’t familiar with Canadian geography). What started out as a brand that offered just three cloth diaper models, now has ten items to choose from with more products on the way. Easy Peasies cloth diapers are manufactured right here in Canada, so you know you’re getting a quality product that’s made ethically.

The Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle is a one size pocket diaper that comes with the diaper shell and a bamboo trifold insert. The pocket diaper shell is made of waterproof PUL, and the inside of the diaper is made of a stay dry feel microfleece. The Easy Peasies pocket diaper shell fits from 6 to 40lbs. It accommodates that range of sizing with a 3×4 rise snap adjustment. The x-small rise fits babies from 6 to 10lbs, the small rise fits babies from 8 to 15lbs, the medium rise fits babies from 15 to 20lbs, and the large rise (fully unsnapped) fits babies from 20 to 40lbs. The front closure of the diaper consists of a double row of snaps. The tabs of the diaper can be crossed over to get a smaller fit as needed, and there is a hip snap on each tab to help prevent wing droop.

Inside the Easy Peasies pocket diaper shell you’ll find a microfleece inner. Microfleece is a stay dry material, so it will help to keep baby feeling less damp in their diaper. The pocket opening is located at the back of the diaper (my favourite spot), and is generously sized to allow for easy stuffing. You’ll also find double gussets inside the diaper to provide further protection from leg leaks when those mega poops happen. The edges of the diaper are serged which leave the leg openings and back elastic with a ruffled finish.

The Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle comes with a trifold bamboo insert. This  insert is made with two layers of bamboo fleece. This bamboo fleece is exceptionally soft. It can be folded in thirds to provide up the 6 layers of absorbency. At the x-small and small rise settings, you’ll also want to fold the insert down a bit to shorten it to fit in the shell. In doing so, you will increase the layers of absorbency to 12 in those folded zones. You’d put the folded part in the front for a boy and at the back for a girl. The bamboo trifold insert can be stuffed into the Easy Peasies one size pocket shell, or it can be laid on top of the pocket shell if you want to use it as an all in two diapering system.

How it works:

I had the Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle diaper on Petit Prince when he was 19lbs 2oz. The first thing that stood out to me with this diaper was the fit. Easy Peasies diapers are nice and narrow, especially through the legs. This is a wonderful thing! I’m quite particular about making sure the leg elastics sit in baby’s underwear lines with all the thigh meat out of the diaper, and achieving that was totally easy peasy with the Easy Peasies diaper (see what I did there?). Because the crotch of the diaper is so narrow, there’s no risk of bunching up the insert while getting it placed correctly on baby. That’s a great thing because a bunched up insert can often lead to leaking. Not a problem with Easy Peasies! Petit Prince is just over 19lbs, and this diaper still fits at the small rise setting. I did try him at the medium rise setting (the one recommended for his weight), and it does work for him there too. He’s just at that in between stage at the moment where he’s starting to slim down a little bit, but the Easy Peasies diaper fits him well at the small rise for now. He will definitely need the medium rise in just a few short weeks, I’m sure. I do find that the overall rise of the Easy Peasies diaper is on the short side. I don’t have a 35 – 40lb child to try these on (The Heir is potty trained, but still only 30 -31 lbs), so I can’t be sure how well they’d fit a larger toddler or a preschooler. They would be large enough at the waist, but I can’t be sure that they’d be tall enough over the bum unless your child is particularly lean.

How about the absorbency? I find the bamboo fleece trifold to be quite absorbent all on its own. I use it folded into thirds and then folded at the front to fit well into the shell. Petit Prince can last a solid three hours with the bamboo trifold insert, even in the morning when he tends to wet more heavily. He’s even worn the Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle through a nap that went longer than expected and had no leaks. The bamboo trifold insert that comes with the Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle isn’t enough absorbency for overnight use. This isn’t the least bit surprising to me and I would say that the vast majority of cloth diaper bundles won’t last a full night without the addition of a booster.

Is it easy to use? I’m already a fan of pocket diapers (they happen to be my favourite style), so I don’t find stuffing pockets to be an arduous task to begin with. The Easy Peasies pocket diaper has a generously sized pocket opening, so stuffing is a breeze. Even though the diaper is narrow through the crotch, I didn’t find this to be a hinderance to quick and easy stuffing. The back flap of the pocket opening is a bit short, so I found that it flipped up a bit. This isn’t a big deal, but you’ll want to be sure to tuck it down and check that it’s tucked inside the diaper once it’s on baby. The hip snaps are a really nice feature to assist not only with preventing wing droop, but also with achieving a great fit. You can always do the hip snap up right beside the tab snaps if you find you need the waist to fit smaller. It’s always nice to have that option for a tighter fit when it’s needed. Because the Easy Peasies shell has a double row of snaps at the front closure, you can stagger the top and bottom snaps to accommodate thicker thighs or a bigger tummy as needed. The cross over snaps on the tabs, although not needed to fit Petit Prince, make the diaper especially teeny at the smallest rise setting, and that means it really will fit a newborn right from birth. There’s not a lot of one size diapers that can actually fit a newborn, but it sure looks to me like Easy Peasies most definitely will.

What about those double gussets? You know, double gussets aren’t really a big deal for me. I’ve never had issues with poop leaks in cloth diapers, so I’ve never found the addition of a double gusset to be an absolute necessity for me. That being said, I know a lot of moms that LOVE double gussets on a diaper. Consider it an insurance policy on your diaper. You may never actually need them, but if there comes a time when you do, you’ll be glad they’re there! (Especially when baby’s wearing your favourite white outfit, am I right?).

Pros:

  • Made in Canada!
  • Narrow/trim fit
  • Can be used as a pocket diaper or an AI2
  • Bamboo trifold insert is SOFT and absorbent
  • Generous pocket opening
  • Cross over tabs for a teeny fit when needed
  • Hip snaps prevent wing droop
  • Double gussets just in case you need them
  • Four rise settings
  • Smallest rise will fit a newborn

Cons:

  • Top pocket flap flips up
  • Largest rise may not be tall enough for larger toddlers/preschoolers
  • Booster required for overnight use

Final Thoughts:

I really do like the Easy Peasies Bamboo Bundle. I find the trim and narrow fit to be wonderful, and the super soft bamboo trifold insert is great. I keep saying how soft it is, but seriously, it’s REALLY SOFT. It’s the kind of soft you want to rub all over your face. This Easy Peasies diaper is great for a day time diaper and gives us a solid three hours between diaper changes without experiencing any leaks. I like that there are four rise adjustments, so you’ll never find your baby at an awkward in between rise phase. Most of all, I LOVE that Easy Peasies are MADE IN CANADA. I love a North American made diaper, and I love a Canadian made one even more!

  20. I will say I am still not completely sold on the whole cloth diapering system. I have looked into order but alas they never make it out of my shopping cart. This brand does seem top notch and I love that it is narrow fit for those skinny low percentile babies like mine!

  21. I will soon have a little squish to put cloth diapers on! I will be trying these for sure!

  24. I’ve never used Easy Peasies, but I would love to try them. One complaint I have about my current diapers is that they seem to spread baby’s legs apart. The slim style of these looks much more comfortable.

  30. I’ve never tried cloth diapering, but I’m thinking about it for baby #3!

    Petit Prince looks absolutely adorable in this little diaper!

  32. I would love to try these diapers. We love bamboo in this house

  33. I really like the snap diapers for cloth diaper covers. I find that they fit my baby best.

  34. I’ve been curious about these diapers – thanks for the review! Now to find them on the cozy bums website and see how many layers those inserts are!

  35. Wow,what a wonderful review,I love wild and free.Beautiful baby.

  36. I’d love to try these! I’m new cloth diapers and these look so cozy. Great review.

  37. Easy Peasies has some really awesome prints out right now, but that’s all I knew about them. Thanks for the review!

  38. I truly appreciate how soft and absorbent they are, but I have to admit I also really like how cute they are. I love all those different coloured snaps that make them fit so well.

  39. Looks like a great fitting diaper.I like the extra rise settings and the double gusset. Would love to try this brand, it looks like it could be my new favourite!

  40. There are so many different diapers to choose from it can be overwhelming to know what to get to start off! I like the fact its trim fit and the snaps ☺

  41. These things seem very solid. What stands out the most are the color coated snaps, I’m ocd about making sure its as even as possible, and this allows for that more than ever

  42. Love that not only are they super cute but absorbant and comfortable for baby too! I also like that the materal helps baby feel dry.

  43. This looks like a fantastic diaper! I love the different colored snaps! Not only for how pretty it looks, but also because I want to make sure that the little butt is in the diaper as evenly as possible! I’m sure this would speed that process up!

  44. I just started cloth diapering, so I’m not gonna act like some kinda pro/know a lot about what I’m talking about, but I can already say that the multi-rise snaps are amazing, and I’m especially amazed by the number of sizes this thing can accommodate! I thought the starter diapers I got were magical for having 6+ possible sizes but this is truly awesome! Also, it looks a deal more comfortable than many of the cloth diapers I’ve seen 😀

  45. I haven’t tried this brand yet, but I’ve heard good things in addition to this review. I love the candy snaps too!

  46. These are super cute. I like the fact that they are adjustable. My guy is smaller than a lot of babies. I also like the fact that they do not look bulky in the groin area, good for a moving baby.

  47. I love the fact that you can also use it as a cover and that it comes with a bamboo insert

  48. I’d love to try these! Haven’t seen them in any stores… I love trying new cloth diapers!

  49. Any diaper with double gussets is worth a try for me!! I have a long skinny babe, so I guess my concern would be whether the rise is high enough to get a good life span of. It would be awesome to win the bundle giveaway so I could try before I buy!

  50. Wow! What a great fit! I’ve been trying to convert my stash to completely natural fibers (I’m having stink and rash issues with my microfiber) so I’m excited about the bamboo insert too. I think I’ll have to try these!

  51. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these! It always breaks my heart to see my friends waste their money on disposable diapers when there are high quality, sustainable products out there like this. The cotton looks absorbent enough to keep the babes comfy, and the fabric is so cute. The VERY adjustable snap set-up makes these a perfect investment because the diapers can grow with the baby.

  52. I have gone to Bamboo sheets and they are the ticket!Didn’t know they used them for diapers,too.Great idea!

  53. So I literally googled “Easy peasies vs applecheeks” and found your review, which I’m very thankful to have found! My CD stash is mostly Funky Fluff, but I do have 4 Applecheeks covers – I want to get a few more pocket style diapers, but can’t bring myself to buy more Applecheeks when they are sized in different stages…So I came across Easy Peasies, was unsure, but started looking into them. Your review was so well written that I currently have them in my basket at Cozy Bums 🙂 I had no idea they were Canadian made either until stumbling across your post, so that’s a HUGE bonus for me! 🙂

  54. Oh I have to add that I LOVE the colour coordinated snaps! This must make these diapers so easy for childcare providers! 🙂

  55. love that these are canada made diapers. these look like awesome diapers.
