I felt pretty honored to be entrusted with EcoAble's newest diaper style to showcase for you all. I have really enjoyed every opportunity I've had to work with EcoAble's line of cloth diapers.
The EcoAble Ultimate Cloth Diaper is a versatile system made to meet many diapering needs. For starters, it has a PUL-lined shell (a waterproof laminated fabric) with mesh inner lining and a thin sewn-in soaker. Additionally it comes with a snap-in hemp insert.
What makes it a potty training diaper is the snaps being on the side of the hips, with lots of elastic around the waist.
There are multiple snap options to adjust waist, which allows for easy up and down/on and off capabilities for a potty training toddler.
Furthermore, by removing the snap-in liner, you are left with a very slim soaker that is great for a small accident.
The previously mentioned attributes are also what make this piece great for water play. Most public pools require a diaper on anyone not fully potty trained, and disposables can get so heavy with water, it impedes playtime! The thin soaker wouldn't hold enough to get weighed down, but the PUL and elastic will hold in any solids as required.
To make this a fantastic every day cloth diaper, just snap in the included hemp insert and use as normal.
I love the multiple functions in one product, but I think I will appreciate it more when I'm actually needing them all. Currently we are nowhere near potty-training (and it's also not really pool weather yet) so I'm not really finding myself grabbing for it as my everyday diaper simply because of the side snaps alone.
I understand how convenient they will be when the time comes that she will be pulling on and off her own bottoms to go potty, but for now it's mostly just a hassle to get them snapped at diaper change while she is rolling about. So, I'll be holding it back for the day when my challenges change to something it specifically addresses.
I reviewed the Yellow Medium which fits between 17-26lbs. My daughter is nearly 20lbs, which I would still consider on the low end of that, and it seemed to fit best on the biggest setting of waist snaps.
It can still snap to the middle setting however I felt that it dug into her belly a little too much. Maybe a size up would be best.
The diaper comes in 4 sizes: Newborn (5-12lb), Small (10-18lb) Medium (17-26lb) and Large (25-33lb). Each come with one rise snap down.
The only difference between the sizes is that both Newborn and Small come with double leg gussets to avoid blowouts and cost a dollar less than the Medium and Large at $15.50. Each size comes in both adorable prints and vibrant solid colors.
