I recently shared a post about overnight cloth diapers and Jessica at Carry Me Mommy reached out to let me know about one she sells that is a real hit with heavy wetters! Here is the Easy Peasies Dry-nights AIO cloth diaper! I have thoroughly tested this diaper on my 11 month old, and am excited to share with you my findings.

The Details: Easy Peasies Dry-nights AIO
Canadian cloth diaper company Easy Peasies has come up with a new overnight cloth diaper solution for heavy wetters. It is made of 12 layers of super-thirsty hemp/cotton blend, my favourite material for overnights. The stretchy, high quality PUL comes in many prints and colours, and the 5 by 3 rise snaps adjust to fit 6 to 45lbs.
The wings are wide with 2 rows of waist snaps and two crossover snap settings for newborns. The hemp inserts, one full snake-like insert and one fleece topped smaller insert, snap in and out of the shell at the front or back for easy customization and washing/drying.
Specifically an Overnight Cloth Diaper
This diaper claims to out-perform existing overnight diapers on the market, and the forethought is very evident throughout the diaper’s design. You can tell that they’ve considered common issues like flooding and leg leaks in addition to the absorbency requirements.
One unique feature is a hemp soaker sewn right into the center of main fleece lining. This shell, in combination with the fleece topped hemp booster, could likely work on its own for newborns and save the bulky additional insert for later. The fleece slows down pee to allow absorbtion, and also acts as a stay dry layer for baby’s sensitive skin.
Easy Peasies diapers all have the gathered leg ruffles with gentle elastics. This particular diaper has excellent coverage even with all the layers inside, and I get no leg gaps with these elastics. This surprised me, because often bulky overnight solutions push the shells out causing gaps. Not here! The shell is quite roomy.
How we used it
This diaper has a bit of a learning curve, but once I chose a good setting and way of assembly, it became easier to use. There is a LOT of diaper here! At the time of testing, my Littlest is 11 months old and 18.5 pounds. He is long and lean, and fits well on the second smallest rise setting, using both available inserts. He sleeps 12 hours at night and rarely wakes to nurse. He is, what I consider, a heavy wetter, but no longer the ultra-super-soaker that he was while night nursing.
We snap the main snake-insert at the front, and fold it in half. We then snap the fleece topped small insert to the back, and fold the front as needed to fit under the tummy band. The key to a trim fit was folding the attached soaker/liner downwards first, to accommodate the use of the rise snaps, and pushing excess material up on the front under ther snaps. This way, the snap on inserts lay on top easier.
The assembly is a bit complicated for caregivers, but as long as I put it together myself ahead of time, both my mom and my husband have put it on at bedtime without issues.
We have used this diaper at least 6 times overnight and even a few times during the day. Surprisingly, it held up for a 2 hour daytime use with just the shell (and it’s sewn-in insert) and small insert! I only did it once, though, as we wanted to use this specifically for overnights- as it’s intended. I have not had any overnight leaks with this diaper, and in my opinion there is absorbency to spare each morning.
The final Verdict
Overall, this diaper is a winner for me. It successfully stood up to our 12 hour overnight testing, and it fits well. The diaper is really cute and the price is right for what you get, at C$39.99. There’s a lot a hemp/cotton in this diaper so I’m happy with the price, as I don’t need to add my own boosters.
What I Love
- The gentle ruffled elastics on the legs holds in wetness and poops without issues and without gaps.
- The dual row waistband gives a great fit on both tummy and hips, and I love the TWO columns of cross over snaps.
- There is a Waterproof panel inside the front waistband, which is great for my tummy sleeper.
What I Love Less
- It’s definitley bulky, but most overnight solutions are when dealing with a heavy wetter. Our pajamas all fit, though, and he isn’t uncomfortable.
- It takes some practice to assemble and fit it right, but we managed just fine.
