Outdoor Fun Event: Nifty Nappy Diapers

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~

Nifty Nappy Cloth Diapers: Growing up Green

I had the wonderful pleasure of reviewing the Nifty Nappy Woolie Wrap during my One Size Cloth Diaper Event at the first of this year. Vilate was so awesome to work with and her products are such high quality I asked her if I could review her reusable swim diaper. I was ecstatic when she not only agreed to let me review her Snappy SwimzEaze, but also giveaway 2! Nifty Nappy products are wonderful and it's  nice to know I'm supporting a WAHM. Vilate has you covered for any season of cloth diapering from winter with the Woolie Wraps to summer with her Snappy SwimzEaze!

About the Snappy SwimzEaze!
The Nifty Nappy Snappy SwimzEaze are the cutest swim diapers I have ever seen! The SwimzEaze is a 3 layer swim diaper. Vilate gives you a large variety of cotton prints to choose from for the outer layer. Then there is a middle layer of PUL for waterproofing and the inner layer is a soft microfleece. The SwimzEaze features 2 rows of strong resin snaps to hold up to the wear and tear. You can get the best fit with the SwimzEaze because it is offered in two sizes, Small (7 to 25 lbs) and Large (20 to 40 lbs). 

Our Snappy SwimzEaze Experience!
Using reusable swim diapers is just common sense. I have to laugh when I think of using a disposable swim diaper on a baby because all they do is fill with water. Not to mention all the chemicals that is in that disposable swim diaper as well! Before reviewing the Snappy SwimzEaze I did not really have a reusable swim diaper. Last year I had bought a pull up reusable one at the dollar store, but it is so tight around his legs causing deep red mark indentations and loose around the belly letting anything float out. I know it's uncomfortable for him to wear it.

I chose the Happy Lobster print in Large for Ethan to try out. It is so adorable and such a colorful bright print. The quality of the diaper is fabulous. My favorite feature of the Snappy SwimzEaze is the soft inner microfleece and the snaps which make it easy to get the diaper on whether it's wet or dry. The diaper fits great on Ethan. No more red marks on the legs!

I want to point out a couple of great things about using the Snappy SwimzEaze. These swim diapers are very convenient to use and they are not just for people who currently cloth diaper their child. After we are done swimming I wash the Snappy SwimzEaze and his swim suit together in the wash. I'm washing his swim suit anyway so adding a diaper is no big deal at all. If you are traveling a short distance to a pool or swim lessons you can go ahead and put your baby in the Snappy SwimzEaze before you leave the house. Nothing is more frustrating (or to me anyway) than trying to change your child into their swim clothes after you arrive to your destination especially if it's a public pool and the facilities are dirty. Because of the PUL sandwiched layer it is waterproof like a regular cloth diaper! Just lay an insert on top of the diaper in case there is an "accident" on the way to your destination. When you arrive just pull out the insert while the diaper is still on. Simple!

Thanks again to Vilate for letting us try out the Snappy SwimzEaze. We love it and it is getting a lot of use!
