Sprout Change All in Two Cloth Diaper Review

By now I have tried over 100 cloth diapers (I think I am nearing 200?). And if I were asked where to put the Sprout Change diaper by the Willow Store, it would definitely be in the top 10% of my favorites. No joke. I love the wipeable interior, the option to side snap OR front snap, the absorbent insert, and if it had a SNAP in insert, it’d have me at hello. It is SO CLOSE to being the perfect All in Two diaper. SO close. So in this review, I am going to show you the features of the diaper and talk about how it worked with my kids.

Diaper Features

* The diaper is a one size diaper, meaning you should be able to use it from birth to potty training (roughly 5-40 pounds)

Smallest setting:

 

Largest setting:

* You adjust the sizing using elastic adjustments that are easy to get to in the diaper. There are various button holds on the elastic hidden under this snapped part of the diaper (see picture). You just button the elastic on the setting you need. The elastic can be adjusted in both legs and in the waist.

* The cover is reversible. Have it one way, and it closes on the sides, have it the other way, and it closes on the front.

 

* The diaper has TWO layers of PUL in it, to help make it last longer

 

Review 

My son is almost 1 year old and is a little on the chunky side. My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and skinny. Both are between the normal and heavy wetter range.

142143144145

Absorbency 5

Fit 5 (can I say 1,000? This was the PERFECT fit on my kids. I tested this for a LONG time and it fit through so many different body changes)

Trim 5

Worth the Price 5

Nap 5

Night 5 (I stacked two inserts)

Would Recommend 5

(Did I seriously just give a perfect score? I think that’s the first time that’s happened here. However, that does not mean it is perfect).

Pros: customize the fit, absorbency, perfect fit across tummy which is great for stomach sleeper

Cons: insert shifts around, insert doesn’t snap in, not hook and loop

Price: Cover is $16.95

Although The Willow Store provided this diaper for review, it did not affect the opinions given in this post.

Tara Porter

Tara Porter began using cloth diapers in 2011 when she felt that using disposable diapers was costing too much money. The problem was, a lot of the highly recommended diapers weren’t working for her baby. What she finally discovered was that her baby was skinny and a heavy wetter, and that diapers worked differently for those baby types. Because of her professional work with survey design and statistics, she designed Padded Tush Stats as a way to determine how different cloth diapers worked on different babies.

Tara moved on to other career endeavors in 2014 but can still be found online blogging about health and fitness at Fit Baby Steps.

    What kind of insert is it? It looks kind of like microfiber . . . but does it have a stay dry liner on top, then? Or is it simply a cover and you just use a prefold or another insert you have inside of it? Love the fact that it can be front OR side snapping, that’s so smart!

      Mine is a hemp insert and on a different note, I’ve never considered mine wipeable.

  • Tara

    Carolyn, it’s hemp. Trisha, do you have a heavy wetter? It’s made out of PUL, it should be wipeable. I have a heavy wetter and it definitely wipes down.

    • Trisha W.

      Tara, I don’t have a heavy wetter. The reason I didn’t consider it wipeable is because it’s not shiny PUL exposed like my Thirsties and Flips covers. I have lots of Bummis Super Whisper Wraps and I don’t consider those wipeable either. Perhaps I just look at the fabrics differently than you? Also, the only thing I would be wiping is a poopy and even then I would only do that if I was in some sort of cover pinch. Generally speaking, I rotate between a couple of covers each day. That allows one to air out and dry out if necessary.

      • Tara

        I get what you mean. If it is really saturated, then I really can’t wipe it down. I tend to notice that for me, TPU is not wipeable with how my kids wet, but PUL is (even on its reverse side).

    I have two of these covers and have not been able to get a good fit on our 8 lb, 10 oz newborn. I was hoping to use the covers from the beginning and was disappointed that I haven’t been able to make it work. Hopefully when he gains a little weight we’ll be able to use them. Actually, I bought them last July when my first son was 18 months old and found the rise was too short for him. He’s a very tall, chunky kiddo. I ended up loaning them to a friend who has a child of more average build and they worked for her for a while. Our second son looks like he may be of a more average build so hopefully we’ll get some use out of them.

    Only 1 out of the 4 stores in your database actually have the Sprout Change diaper cover – The Green Baby Store. My Baby First have a Sprout Change diaper sprayer, the remaining 2 don’t carry any Sprout Change products as far as I could tell from searching their webpages..

    • Tara

      Thanks Karianne! I have notified the retailers to edit their listings.

    My son was just born on 7/29 and started these on him as soon as his UC fell off. I was so looking forward to using these but now I can’t. The first button setting I tried was too loose and he leaked all over. I tightened it to just the next button and it squeezed his skin so much it left red and white welts on him.

    On a positive note, I absolutely LOVE the hemp inserts (aka Sprout Change Super Saver Inserts Organic). I will now be using them with the Organic Caboose fleece diaper covers. The inserts don’t hold a stain, they don’t smell and they wash great. I hand wash with Kirk’s Castile soap. HTH!
