TotsBots Easyfit Diaper (Review)

I've tried many diapers from various brands, but one brand I kept hearing a lot of buzz about was TotsBots diapers. People seemed to love them regardless of the build of their baby. Skinny baby, chunky baby, tall baby, short baby.... they loved them! A diaper that pleases that many people has to be worth trying! I was ecstatic when I found out I would have the opportunity to review one of their Easyfit diapers, and picked one in Aplix so I could test it out for childcare as well.



When the package arrived, the first thing I noticed, aside from the absolutely amazingly vivid colour of the Pomegranate diaper, was a big caution sticker on the diaper. To ensure that nobody prepping the diaper accidentally ruins any other items in the wash, TotsBots definitely went out of their way to get your attention for this!





I prepped the diaper with a bunch of bath towels (dark navy blue) to make sure there was no bleeding issue, and anxiously got the diaper out to test. It was sooooooooo soft! All of the diapers come with a very soft liner, too.




















It boggled my mind a bit that it was a pocket diaper, but it was an AIO at the same time. Sound a bit confusing? It really isn't... the "insert" is attached on one end and just folds into the pocket. This gives you the opportunity to stuff the pocket for more absorbency if you need it, but you can't lose the original insert since it's all one piece.






The diaper was very trim fitting and held up very nicely for both home and childcare use. One thing I noticed, which was the only negative I heard from other people, was that it seems to be a bit on the smaller side in terms of fit. While it is a one-size diaper and it has rise snaps, Bobble is actually wearing it completely unsnapped in the rise, and the aplix is further out (closer to hipbones) than it is with any of his other one-size diapers. He is normally snapped down a rise on all other OS diapers, and many times the aplix touches with other diapers. He is 30lbs, but these won't fit him much longer. Good thing I have another one on the way!







One thing I can't test, in regards to size, is if that means it fits tiny babies better than other OS diapers in the beginning. I will try this out on Squiggle when she is born and see if we can get a good fit as a newborn since it seems to run smaller, where as I know other brands that won't be able to fit for a while that are OS.



I also ended up getting a TotsBots Easyfit in snaps shortly after getting the Pomegranate. It was in the print "Nature Girl" (got it for Squiggle, but tested it on Bobble to compare snaps vs. aplix fit).  I wasn't able to get as good of a fit on Bobble with the snaps, but it did still hold anything and everything in without any leaks.






You can purchase a TotsBots Easyfit for around $23.95 at many retailers both online and in store. Check out the Find a Retailer tool on the Bummis / TotsBots page and select either online or the local store option to best suit your needs!

  1. That's great that it's a Aio but also a pocket to make it easier to add absorbancy!

  2. I like the idea of an AIO that has a pull out insert, I bet the dry time is amazing. I also like the warning tag! LOL I wish baby clothes came with that warning. :p The price tag is what is keeping me from trying this diaper...ouch!

  3. I really like that it is both a pocket and AIO, those are my favorite types of diapers since we have 3 people changing my daughter every day-me, my mom and my husband and we all either prefer pockets or AIO.

  4. I love that there is room for more inserts if needed. though the way it fits your little guy, I don't think it would fit mine at all. he's 35+ pounds and close to 36 in tall maybe taller... Lol

  5. I like how it is a pocket and AIO all at the same time. Also like that it can be adjusted to fit multiple body shapes & sizes.

  6. Your pictures make it so easy to see that it is trim-fitting, if not for long on a 30-pounder!

  7. I love Tots Bots! The AIOs are my favorite.

  8. I like that the insert is sewn in so it can't be lost. With different diapers and inserts it's hard to keep them straight.

  9. I love the pomegranate color! But I'm glad it comes with a warning! I also love how well it fit him! Very cool design with the pocket/aio thing! I'd never heard of this brand but now I'm intrigued!

  10. I didn't realize that these had a connected insert and a pocket until you pointed it out ( I haven't tried this brand previously). I like that they still come with a liner. Is there a specific weight range for these?

  11. I love that these come with a warning for the red dye, haha. Really good they didn't sneak that one up on us!

  12. I love the pocket AIO concept though I do wish they had kept the bamboo/microfiber soaker as with V2. I do really like the fleece liner it comes with though.

  13. Wow, the red diaper fits your little one like a glove! I have a few of the older style tots bots but have not tried the minky version.

  14. I love how the red goes inside too! How fun! We only have a couple of prints and the inside is just a ... tan sort of color? I didn't realize the solids had that fun feature!

  15. we haven't tried tots bots yet, but i really want to. i love the style of insert!

  16. I love how versatile these are! I like that there's never any question which insert goes in this one, and I can add a second insert for extra absorbency.

  17. Interesting, can add more absorbency and cut down drying time, nice!

  18. Thanks for the great review and comparison of snaps/aplix. I've been dying to try these, but the price tag has put me off, I may splurge on one or two eventually, they have the cutest prints!

  19. I love the look of this diaper, and how the insert comes out to wash better, but is still attached. I also like how the aplix is the same color as the diaper, not just plain white. I haven't tried this diaper but I want to really, REALLY bad!!

  20. What an intense color! I really want to try one of these!

  21. What adorable prints. Its weird that the one size is a little smaller- good to know with my tall baby. I like how you the insert can be folded and snapped in!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's a really interesting insert contraption. Almost confusing. Did you find it difficult to use like that, or just different?

    1. It wasn't difficult at all, I just folded it and stuffed like I would with any other insert
