I first heard of Snap-EZ during the great cloth diaper hunt, when I swear I spent hours looking at a virtual store shelf of trainers on an extreme sponsor’s site! What really caught my eye is the extreme size range they have, to fit older children, special needs children, and adults. They have extenders available to make them even larger. Though the pocket diapers have the widest size range (starting at youth small, and going up to adult XL), the training pants come in sizes that will fit kids with a 22″ rise, 20″ thighs and 30″ waist!
Last week, I reviewed the “new style” Happy Heinys one-size diaper. Today, I’m reviewing the mini one-size diaper! The mini-one size with inserts retails for $17.95, but just like the one-size, there are discontinued colors (burgundy, forest green, hot pink, light pink & peach) available at a $6 discount. Grab one for $2 less if you don’t need an insert, then add the discount code I have for you to get the price under $9!
I chose the light pink figuring it might be light enough to pass for off white. I think it does look rather pink, but I’m not too concerned about it. I mean, it is a diaper, right?
“Mini One-Size” is a fitting name, since it looks like a miniature version of the one-size! It has 3 rise settings (the o/s has 4) to fit 4-15 lbs, Velcro closures, and the same leg elastic.
The mini one-size comes with two inserts (if you don’t elect to save the $2 instead!) in extra-small and small. I tried the small insert from my one-size Happy Heinys diaper and though it was a wee bit wide. I’m curious about the size and shape of the inserts that come with the diaper, but I have plenty of newborn inserts/doublers that came with all my one-size diapers! I found one that was a little bit narrower and it worked really well.
Here is each size measured folded and stretched:

Here’s my “model” in a preemie disposable, compared to the smallest setting of the mini one-size:

I also have a review coming up of the extra-small Happy Heinys pocket diaper, along with a separate post comparing it to the mini one-size. Grab a discontinued color without an insert, use the discount code below, and get a mini-one-size for under $9! I also wanted to mention Happy Heinys’ Micro Mini Stages AIO diapers, which fit babies 1-3 lbs, 2-4 lbs and 3-6 lbs. While it makes me sad to think of babies that tiny, I think it is awesome to have a cloth option.

The Easy Fit and Tini Fit are made by Tots Bots in Scotland, and distributed by Bummis. (I checked out their Facebook page and really enjoyed all the “nappy” and “rubbish” and “holiday” talk, tee hee!)
The Easy Fit diaper is designed to fit babies from 8-35 pounds, and the Tini Fit is for little ones from 5-14 pounds.
The diaper has Velcro closures with good sized laundry tabs. The inner of the diaper is rayon from bamboo, with the outer edge side guards made of brushed polyester.
I wasn’t sure exactly what it was going to look like, since it’s so hard to tell from photos. In the first photo, I’ve pictured the diaper turned inside out, so you can see that it has a sewn in soaker like a “traditional” all-in one. However, instead of the entire soaker being sewn together, the rest sticks out like a tongue style soaker, that you tuck into the pocket.
You can also add an additional booster (included) to up the absorbency from 13.4 oz to 16.9 oz!
With the Tini Fit, you’re getting the ease of an AIO (stuffing the flap in is an additional step, but it’s very quick and easy) but the soaker will be easier to clean and dry than if it were all sewn in. You can also fold the soaker to place absorbency where you need it, and of course the pocket allows you to add a booster!
Here it is measured folded and stretched:
Here’s my “model” pictured first in a newborn disposable, then in the Tini Fit:
The Tini Fit comes in 6 great colors (including white) and retails for $18.95. See the diaper on an actual newborn…
