Happy Heiny New Style One Size Cloth Diaper Review / Comparison to Old Style & Discount

New Style Happy Heinys 1

My Happy Heiny Monkey Print and Peace Bear print diapers were some of the first in my stash. Within a few months, I figured out that they really didn’t fit my slender son well. By the way, yes I know my “reviews” were terrible when I first started!

Happy Heiny now has an improved style that better fits average to slender babies! You can still get the original style if you love them, but they are made to order. The Happy Heiny Store has several discontinued colors available, that are discounted $6.00 below the $18.95 MSRP (burgundy, candy, forest green, hot pink, light pink, peach & purple.) Get one without an insert and save another $2.00. I was able to get this purple diaper for just $10.95, less an additional discount (I have one for you too!) So, if you like one of the discontinued colors and you have a spare insert, you can get these for less than $10 each!

The other thing I wasn’t thrilled about with my old Happy Heinys was the Velcro closures/laundry tabs. The diaper I got this time has snap closures, with overlap. You can also get the new style with velcro closures, and the same colors are available at the discounted price!

New Style Happy Heinys 6 4 rise settings

The diaper has 4 rise settings, and is estimated to fit up to 35 pounds. Happy Heiny calls the sizes newborn, small, medium and large, but I tend to refer to them as small, medium, large and extra large, as it does run a wee bit big. I have reviews coming up for the XS pocket and the mini one size as well, and they are far more likely to fit a newborn than this, in my opinion.

The new style still has the same leg elastic and pocket opening.

Overall, nothing jumps out at me as being different.

Here I’ve compared each size, folded and stretched. The purple snap diaper is the “new” style and the peace bears Velcro closure is the “old” style.

Smallest size setting:

New Style Happy Heinys 14 new small foldedNew Style Happy Heinys 15 old small folded
New Style Happy Heinys 16 new small stretchedNew Style Happy Heinys 17 old small stretched
New Style Happy Heinys 18 new vs old small

Second to smallest setting:

New Style Happy Heinys 19 new medium foldedNew Style Happy Heinys 20 old medium folded
New Style Happy Heinys 21 new medium stretchedNew Style Happy Heinys 22 old medium stretched
New Style Happy Heinys 23 new vs old medium

Third/next to largest setting:

New Style Happy Heinys 24 new large foldedNew Style Happy Heinys 25 old large folded
New Style Happy Heinys 26 new large stretchedNew Style Happy Heinys 27 old large stretched
New Style Happy Heinys 28 new vs old large

Fourth/largest setting:

New Style Happy Heinys 29 new xl foldedNew Style Happy Heinys 30 old xl folded
New Style Happy Heinys 31 new xl stretchedNew Style Happy Heinys 32 old xl stretched
New Style Happy Heinys 33 new vs old xl

The larger settings are most noticeably smaller, and the new style definitely fits my 24ish pound 25 month old better.

Here he is in the next-to-largest setting of both:

New Style Happy Heinys 34 old large on 24lb 2yoNew Style Happy Heinys 35 old back
New Style Happy Heinys 36 old sideNew Style Happy Heinys 37 old front

New Style Happy Heinys 38 new large on 24lb 2yoNew Style Happy Heinys 39 new large side
New Style Happy Heinys 40 new large backNew Style Happy Heinys 41 new large back

Most importantly, we’re not experiencing any of the leak issues we had with the old style, even when he “napped” (and by “napped” I mean fell asleep face down on the floor of my office because he refuses to take real naps!)

    […] 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 […]

    Do you think the smallest setting would be a bit bulky for a slender newborn? It looks like a lot of fabric…

    • July 21, 2011 at 12:20 pm

      Yes, I do. The mini one size would be a better fit in my opinion (rise wise) and the XS pocket is also much narrower through the middle. I have reviews of those coming up in the next few weeks! (with pictures comparing them to these!)

    How do you know if you have the old style or the new style? I just bought one about a month ago, but I have no idea!

    • July 21, 2011 at 12:37 pm

      I’m not sure if they are marked in any way. I would guess it’s the new style unless the store you ordered from stated it was the older style/old stock!
