Simple Snug AI2 is a cover-style system with stay-dry micro-fleece pockets in the front and the back of the diaper to hold the inserts securely in place while also keeping the sticky PUL away from your baby's body. Speaking of inserts, there are 5 that you have to choose from. Yeah, 5. That's a lot of great options! The covers also have double gussets to keep messes inside the diaper and not on your baby's clothes. And like all Smart Snugs diapers, they have hip snaps and fold-over tabs that will ensure that this diaper will fit your baby for a long long time.
The insert that I was sent to test out with my new Simple Snug AI2 was the 6 Layer Bamboo Cotton with Gussets. This insert is soft. Really really soft. I know that it's got to feel great on Eisley's little tushie, and that's important to me. It's also really absorbent. One 6 Layer insert is plenty for nap time protection. It didn't quite get us through the night, but Eisley has been drinking a whole lot of milk before bed time lately, so the only thing that tends to get us through is a hemp pre-fold tri-folded in a pocket diaper.
The only thing I'm not sure I am in love with are the gussets on the insert. The gussets don't seem to grab the four inside layers, and so it always seems a little bunchy when I pull the inserts out of the washer and dryer. I don't like when my underpants get all bunched up, so I tend to think my daughter must not like it either, so for me the bunching is con to this insert. It's not a deal breaker, with some effort I've been able to get everything smoothed back out, but in the future I'd love to see these inserts made with the gusset grabbing onto each layer. If that happens, I'll be a convert.
If you're not wild about the gussets on the insert, there are also non-gusseted options that will be just as absorbent and soft. The inserts also come in charcoal bamboo in place of the bamboo cotton. I do love options!
Ok. So here are the details-
Price- $14.99 for a Simple Snug cover with wipeable PUL inside that can be used for multiple diaper changes.
$19.50 for a pack of three Cotton Bamboo Inserts with Gussets
Options- 6 great colors to choose from as well as two different pocket materials. (note that the charcoal bamboo pockets or Nature Snugs are $18.99 instead of $14.99) 5 different inserts to choose from!
Pros- Great fit that covers a huge range of weights and sizes thanks to the overlapping tabs and cross-over snaps.
The black color is awesome. Seriously, why haven't I gotten a black diaper before now? All of their colors are vibrant and gorgeous.
The covers can be used for multiple diaper changes and you can use so many different Smart Snugs inserts, prefolds, flats... just about anything in them.
The stay dry pockets really do keep the inserts in place, and keep baby comfortable.
These are affordable and fairly priced.
Cons- The gusseted inserts are a little bit bunchy. You have to mess with them a bit to get them to lay nice and straight.
There are only 6 colors! With colors that vibrant, I'd love to see some more modern options like a deep teal, hot pink, and some less primary colors. This isn't really a con as much as a wish for more.
Overall- I really like the new Smart Snug Simple Snug AI2. I think I'm going to have to add more to my stash because these are so easy and work so well.
