I received these products free for review. All opinions remain my own.
I recently had the chance to try out both of Easy Peasies’ one-size cloth diaper options: their all-in-one and their pocket diaper. Similar in design and cut, both feature ruffles at the back waist and legs, and an inner double gusset. Both have a stay-dry fleece inner and rely on microfiber as their absorbent component.

Inside the pocket diaper:
Perhaps a nod to “Easy peasie, lemon squeezy,” the inserts are bright yellow. Definitely easy to match up your Easy Peasie with its inserts right out of the dryer!
Both designs feature cross-over snaps and four rise levels for a fit that matches (according to the company) sizes 1 through 5 in disposable diapers.
The most surprising thing for me about the fit of both these diapers is the stretchy wings. I’m used to him being on nearly the last waist snaps now that he’s over 30 lbs. This is not the case with Easy Peasies!
The two rows of closure snaps mean you can stagger the fit, looser at the hips and tighter at the waist (or vice versa), as in the left picture, or even, as in the right picture. Regardless, you can see that we are definitely not on the last waist snaps!
Things I love about our Easy Peasies diapers:
- Leg and back waist ruffles! I love the fit and look provided by ruffles!
- The perfect fit at the waist: no complaints of “Diaper too tight!” coming from Cub with those stretchy wings.
- Made in Canada: it’s really tricky to keep manufacturing here, so hats off to Easy Peasies for managing!
- The fit is super duper trim on both models, even in leggings!
Things I love less about our Easy Peasies diapers:
- Heavy on the microfiber: I really don’t love microfiber in my pockets or my all-in-ones. It’s prone to compression leaks and to stink. [Note: Customers CAN choose to order the pocket diaper separately and use their own inserts or buy hemp inserts from Easy Peasies.]
- Lack of front ruffle: I love ruffles on our diapers, and would love to see the same ruffles found on the back and legs of Easy Peasies on the front waist as well. (Possibly they wanted too avoid too much similarity to AMP and AppleCheeks?) [Note: Easy Peasies is testing a model with front wait elastic.]
My preference between the pocket & AIO design:
As a general rule I tend to prefer pocket diapers because I can customize absorbency. In the case of Easy Peasies, I really do prefer their pocket design for a variety of reasons. The AIO design with sewn in and hidden microfiber insert is awkward to customize, aside from placing a booster on top of the diaper, which sort of takes away from the “one-piece” quality of an AIO. It’s also harder to make sure this style of diaper comes perfectly clean. I prefer an AIO design that has a “tongue” insert that tucks inside a pocket: easier to dry and easier to add more inserts.
Easy Peasies also sent me their hemp booster, which I’ve been pairing with one microfiber insert in the pocket diaper with great results. Stay tuned this summer for my review of their newborn diaper!
