    HappyEndings Eco Diapers Charcoal Bamboo All-in-Two Review

    HappyEndings Eco Diapers Charcoal Bamboo All-in-Two Review

    As a cloth diapering mama, I enjoy reading reviews of new diapers from my fellow bloggers. I recently read a review of HappyEndings Eco Diapers from Moms Who Save that piqued my attention. I subsequently approached the company about reviewing an all-in-two diaper on The Parenting Patch. HappyEndings Eco Diapers graciously agreed, and I received a charcoal bamboo all-in-two cloth diaper to test and review on my infant son and preschooler daughter.

    Price

    The charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers currently retails for $13.99, which I consider reasonably priced for an all-in-two. Most other all-in-twos that come with an insert cost slightly more. I therefore consider the HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two among the more frugal cloth diapers.

    I additionally received a large five-layer charcoal bamboo insert, which retails for $5.99. I consider this insert moderately priced compared to other similar bamboo and charcoal bamboo inserts currently available.

    Prints

    I received a charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers in the Mini Mustaches print, which features multi-colored mustaches on a black background, red hip tabs, and green snaps. HappyEndings Eco Diapers currently offers the charcoal bamboo all-in-two in about a dozen adorable prints for boys, girls, and both. The only downside is the lack of solid colors. Regardless, I rate the available print options from HappyEndings Eco Diapers very highly in terms of variety. You are sure to find a diaper that fits your style!

    Design

    Recommended for babies between 8 and 35 pounds, the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers consists of a breathable waterproof PUL exterior lined with a Stay Dry charcoal bamboo fleece interior that wicks away moisture. (Charcoal bamboo purportedly contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which is ideal for babies with a tendency towards rashes from bacterial, fungus, wetness, or synthetic fibers.) The front of the diaper features a leak guard, which is especially great for tummy sleepers and boys. The diaper includes a pocket opening on the back in which to stuff extra inserts and also features double leg gussets to help contain wetness and messes. This all-in-two comes with one snap-in five-layer charcoal bamboo insert, which attaches to the back of the diaper next to the pocket opening.

    As a one-size diaper, the torso of the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers features three rows of three snaps that allow the diaper to adjust between small, medium, and large rise settings. The waist features two rows of slanted snaps, ten on top and eight on bottom. The wings feature double snaps, hip snaps, and a crossover snap to ensure the perfect fit on the tiniest babies through larger preschoolers and to prevent wing droop.

    Laundering

    Because of the natural fibers in the charcoal bamboo, HappyEndings Eco Diapers cautions that the charcoal bamboo all-in-two requires multiple washes to reach maximum absorbency. The company also recommends unsnapping the insert prior to washing, washing on warm, and tumble drying on low.

    Because of my admitted laziness in the laundry room, any new diaper that I add to my stash must fit into my current wash routine. Between washes, I store my dirty charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers in a pail liner in my diaper pail. I remove any extra inserts from the pocket but leave the snap-in insert snapped in. I have found that the snap-in inserts usually unsnaps in my washing machine but that extra inserts do not agitate out. On laundry day, I wash the diaper on hot (water heater set to non-scald temperatures) with detergent and OxiClean followed by two cold rinses. I then typically allow the all-in-two shell to air dry on a drying rack, usually in front of a fan, which typically takes around 12 hours depending on the humidity. I generally machine dry the inserts on low for 80 to 90 minutes, although sometimes I air dry the inserts. I also sometimes tumble dry the shell. Although the natural fibers do take slightly longer to dry than my synthetic-fibered diapers, the HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two fits easily into my cloth diaper laundry routine, so I rate the diaper favorably in terms of laundering.

    Performance

    At 18 pounds and nine months old, my son wears the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers with only the snap-in insert on the medium rise setting with two waist snaps exposed. With both the snap-in insert and the extra five-layer charcoal bamboo insert in the pocket, he wears the diaper on the large rise setting with two waist snaps exposed.  At 30 pounds, my preschooler daughter wears the diaper with both inserts on the large rise setting with four sets of waist snaps exposed. Both my kiddos have plenty of room left to grow in the diaper, so the HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two will definitely fit up to 35 pounds or more on most children. I thus rate the diaper very highly in terms of sizing.

    Although he is a fairly heavy wetter most of the time, my son typically goes two to four hours between diaper changes during the day when wearing a high quality diaper with plenty of absorbency. I have found that the combination of microfiber and charcoal bamboo in the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers offers an extremely absorbent diaper for my little guy. With only the snap-in insert, he can go for about three hours before he leaks. With the addition of the extra insert in the pocket, he can go for four or even five hours between diaper changes. If I add a second extra insert in the pocket, he can even wear the diaper overnight for up to ten hours. I especially like that the charcoal bamboo wicks moisture away from his sensitive skin while locking away wetness. My daughter can also wear the diaper overnight with both inserts. (Although she is daytime potty trained, she still wears a diaper at night.) I thus rate the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers extremely highly in terms of absorbency.

    The HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two additionally performs well at containing solid messes. My son still primarily nurses, eating only a small amount of solid food each day. He is thus at the messy point between liquid EBF and solid food poop. This all-in-two effectively performed at containing all consistencies of poop, from more liquid to more solid. I have not had any problems with poop escaping from the diaper. The double leg gussets, in particular, help contain all manner of solid waste. I therefore rate the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers extremely highly in terms of containing solid messes.

    Final Verdict

    If you are a fan of all-in-two, I highly recommend checking out the charcoal bamboo all-in-two from HappyEndings Eco Diapers. At $13.99 each, the charcoal bamboo-lined diaper with snap-in charcoal bamboo insert is affordably priced. Recommended for babies between 8 and 35 pounds, the diaper fits both my 18 pound infant and 30 pound preschooler with plenty of room to grow on both. I really appreciate the pocket on the back of the diaper, which allows me to add extra inserts for maximum absorbency including overnight. The double leg gussets help contain moisture and messes. Overall, I rate the HappyEndings Eco Diapers charcoal bamboo all-in-two extremely highly and recommend this diaper to other fans of all-in-twos, all-in-ones, and/or pocket diapers.
