I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was when I found out that there would be a new All In Two System on the market. I currently own one All in Two System and although I love the concept there are some major setbacks that I hoped Mother-ease Cloth Diapers would improve on with their All In Two System the Wizard Duo. As soon as the system was released I shot off an email to the lovely Karen from Mother-ease Cloth Diapers to inquire about doing a review and giveaway for the wonderful readers of Life: Full of Unexpected Happiness and guess what? She Said Yes! Yay!
The first thing that excited me when I began to browse the Mother-ease Cloth Diapers website to research the Wizard Duo Diaper was that the inserts that are part of the Wizard system are varied, not just by size but by type too! Wizard Duo offers your choice of Unbleached Cotton, Bamboo, or Stay Dry insert to go along with the Wizard Duo Covers. For my review I chose the Stay Dry Insert. I am normally a pocket diaper user so I wanted to see how this would compare to the stay dry liners of my beloved pocket diapers. How did it do? AMAZING, actually better then some of the pocket diapers I own. When I changed my son I didn't notice any moisture against his skin, I even touched the outside of the lining (my test to see how stay dry IS stay dry) and the Mother-ease Cloth Diaper Wizard Duo Diapers Stay Dry Liner passed my touch test.
We went out and about with the Wizard Duo Diaper because it was My Gym day for my son, I figured him moving and grooving while playing at My Gym would be the true test of how well the Wizard Duo Diaper would function. Normally I will not put the All in Two's I own on my baby while we are out and about because the PUL on the other system I have touches my sons skins on the side of his hips. Most of the time leaving red marks which I HATE. If you are going to have an All in Two system shouldn't the beauty of it be that you can go out and about with it? That's the whole point right? Well with the Wizard Duo Diapers no part of the PUL touches your babies skin while they are wearing the diaper, even the tabs (see picture below) have cloth like fabric covering them. I LOVE this.
Another feature of the Wizard Duo Diaper from Mother-ease Cloth Diapers that I am very fond of is what we call at my house "easy snaps". I am not big on Aplix and my husband is not big on snaps. He isn't big on snaps only because some snaps it's really hard to tell where they are susposed to snap, not to mention awkward to get the typical staggered snaps (think how Fuzzibunz are) in the right place. We definitly lean more towards snaps that are in a straight line and don't have that extra I think it's referred to as "hip snap". My husband commented on the ease of the Wizard Duo Diaper's snaps. Husband tested, husband approved.
The Wizard Duo Diaper covers come in four sizes ranging from 8lbs up to 35lbs. My son is right at the mark of needing a Medium (18-27lbs) instead of a Small (10-18lbs). I will note that I thought that the Wizard Duo Covers run very true to size, my son is roughly 19lbs now and the Medium cover fits him perfectly. I was originally going to go for the Small Cover because it seems with some covers that they run pretty large (much to my dismay when trying to get fitted covers) but thankfully the Mother-Ease Cloth Diaper Wizard Duo Covers do not. Rejoice! The Wizard Duo inserts are also sized which I appreciate as well, it's very frusterating to me to have an All in Two system insert not fit the cover perfectly and cause leaks or be too bulky. The inserts come in sizes XS/SM and One Size in the Unbleached Cotton and Bamboo and XS/SM, MD/LG, and One Size for the Stay Dry. I chose the One Size in my stay dry insert, the size range is 10-35lbs and it fits my son perfectly without being too bulky. I love the choices and just how much you can customize your Wizard Duo Diaper.
One of my main reasons for leaning more towards either All in Two's or Covers and Prefolds with my cloth diaper purchases lately is that I've become quite the cute cloth diaper snob of sorts. No boring colors on my baby, cloth diapers are our fashion statement. That is a problem I run into with pockets is that no matter how cute they are you can only use them once before washing, what a waste! The Wizard Duo Diapers currently come in two oh' so adorable prints the Oceans2 and the Savanna2, we chose the Savanna2 for our review and it is such an adorable vibrant orange color and the cartoon animals on it are stinkin' cute! If you prefer plain colors to prints the Wizard Duo Diaper will be releasing four new colors coming soon.
