- Our Company
Our company name is pronounced "snap easy", although many have said they say snap-eeze, we intended the name to give the idea that these are easy to use because of the snaps!
The Snap-EZ Pocket Diapers are a line of pocket diapers with the intention of making them more affordable and more available!
So that meant the following changes:
-A limited number of outer colors in 1 MIL PUL
-Only available in Youth and Adult Sizes
-Only white microfleece inners - on microfleece by Polartec
Here's what's NOT different:
-They are still 100% made by WAHMs right here in the USA!
-They are still made with the same high quality snaps
and backed with a lifetime guarantee on the snaps!
-They are still made with Lastin Elastic,
Yes, and the longer you use them the more you save!
There are so many variables, especially when looking at adult sizes VS youth sizes, but the cost saving is significant in the first year, and since these last for years, your overall savings is substantial !
By investing in diapers and training pants made with the highest quality materials, the likelihood of them lasting 3 years or more also increases you savings over buying products made with lower quality materials!
Yes, in fact we have shipped to nearly every continent in the world!
Our shopping cart will calculate shipping/handling for you.
We offer first class mail (for US orders that weigh less than 13 oz) as well as USPS Priority and USPS Express for all US orders.
I highly recommend that you insure your order if you ship via USPS
We also offer Fed EX Home Delivery for US order, and this is very cost effective for larger orders, and always has tracking available and the orders are insured automatically with this shipping option!
We also ship anywhere in the world via USPS First Class and Priority!
Once we have processed your order for shipping, we will notify you as to the day it will ship and the approximate day it will arrive at your home! If you haven't heard from us in 7 days, check the email you put on your order, and if that's right, check your spam folder, and if it's not there, give us a call to see when your order will ship!
Just remember that the delivery date we send to you is an approximate date. If you fail to receive your order after 2 weeks has gone by (for US orders) or 3 weeks for international orders, please contact us about it. Occasionally shipping takes longer than anticipated, but we have only lost two orders in 9000 orders and one was a foreign order shipped via parcel post (which we no longer offer for that reason)!
We now also offer insurance - check out the shopping page for details on this!
I like to suggest that you order just 1 of each style/size you are interested in, being careful to measure using the instructions and charts on our Size Page to ensure proper sizing.
That way you can see if the fit is right and see how it works for you and your child's needs!
Also, when ordering adult pocket diapers, find a size that your measurements fall more in the middle, so you can allow for weight fluxuations and not have to move a new size if you lose or gain some weight!
Don't order a size your child doesn't quite fit in yet, as a loose fit will guarantee that you will have leaks!This is especially important with the training pants, as each person will have different needs and these needs might even change throughout the use of our products!
So having one of each type of product/style that could be useful will allow you to see how each product style works for you.
This will also help you determine which type of product you will use in the different situations you experience on an average day (night time, nap time, away from home, at home, etc).
Then you can look at how often you want to do laundry, and then come back with confidence to purchase the perfect stash!
I also recommend ordering a variety of inserts so you can experiment with what works for you child - a soaker is what is sewn into the AIO training pants, the Velour inserts are fine for daytime use, and Hemp/Cotton folding inserts are better for heavy wetness, especially at night time
We are not set up for custom orders, but we are more than willing to take special requests - just send your request to Ruth and let her know what product/size/fabrics you are looking for and we'll see if we can put more of what you are looking for into production (it takes about a month to go through production and show up in stock - it would not be "pre-ordered" specifically for you, but we could let you know when your requested items are stocked)! For prints, they are limited runs and usually we the fabric is all cut when it arrives, so it's unlikely that we can do a special request for a print - especially if it's not a new print! This works especially well if you want to place a large order for a specific combination (all velour inners, or a specific gender) for a product that we don't usually keep a lot on hand!
I would recommend a minimum of 12 - 18 diapers or training pants(this can be an assortment of diapers).
This would have you washing every other day on average. It really depends on how often you need to change and this can vary a lot from person to person.
This estimate is based on changing 3 - 6 times a day, and using one all nigh.
You can adjust this number according to your washing days and your needs (heavy wetters will need to be changed more often than light wetters)!
"1 MIL" - One Millimeters ("1 mill")- This refers to the thickness of the laminations that is applied to the back of the fabric.
"PUL" - Polyurethane Laminate ("pull")- this is the technical name for the plastic type material that is laminated to the fabric, but is the trade name for the solid colors polyester knit laminated fabrics that we order directly from the manufacturer.
"FOE" - Fold Over Elastic - this is the elastic used to trim all of our training pants - this can come in colors, but most of them are in white. This is what makes them act more like underwear than the diapers! If FOE isn't mentioned in the description of the trainer, then it will have white FOE!
Check out the washing instructions page HERE!
The Fold Over Elastic on the trainers shrinks when washed several times and the sizing on my size charts reflects that shrinkage.
So you should see the legs shrink about 1 inch and the tummy about 2 inches.
Please wash them in hot water and dry them on high through 4 cycles before determining that they are indeed the wrong size! Most of the shrinkage happens in the first 2 wash/dry cycles, but as the materials soften up, the elastic will also tighten up a bit more!
The inserts are made from hemp and there are natural oils in the hemp that take many hot washes and hot dry times to remove.
Until the hemp oils are completely removed, the inserts will not absorb quickly
(like water running off a ducks back due to the natural oils on the duck) causing leaks.
After about 8 wash/dry cycles these oils are usually gone the inserts work great!
Try adding a pot of boiling water and/or tbs of dishwashing detergent to the wash cycle and that should do the trick!
Also until the inserts have been washed about 5 times, they are stiff and cause the trainer to look poofy instead of form fitting. This will improve also with additional washes.
There are a couple of things that can cause this when they are new. First make sure you have washed your diaper in HOT water with a small amount of a recommended detergent
(Check out the Washing Instructions) and dried on high.
Try adding a pot of boiling water and/or tbs of dishwashing detergent to the wash cycle and that should do the trick!
You should also do a second wash on hot and dry on high before determining if the fit is correct - they do shrink a little more on the second cycle, and a loose fit will cause leaks!
And if you are trying out a product or insert/soaker that contains hemp, these take at least 8 washes before they absorb quickly and this will lead to leaks that should resolve themselves once the prepping if finished! You can speed up the prepping by adding a pot of boiling to one of the wash loads!
You can also check out our Trouble Shooting page for more info!!
If they were working fine and now are not, please take a look at my Trouble Shooting page.
You should be able to fix the problem with the information on that page!
You need to strip your diapers/trainers to remove build up caused either by detergents/additives/hard water or staying the pail too long Check out our Trouble Shooting page for details!!
Check out the Pocket Diaper Information Page!
The Stuffable trainers work in the same way, only they fit, feel, and function more like underwear!
Check out our Price List!
We only use the highest quality materials:
(ONLY Polartec fleeces a they are the best in the industry and one of the few the do the milling in the USA),
Wooly Nylon thread (more stable),
Lastin elastic (harder to sew but gentler on baby),
etc... and higher quality materials do not come at the same price as inferior materials.
Making products in a factory setting would bring
down the production cost,
but this also leads to lowering quality standard.
Most cloth diaper makers have gone this route.
This is a good thing in that it makes cloth diapering
more available to the people,
but the quality suffers for it.
No, we are not a "bargain brand,"
but hand made by professionally trained
WAHM seamstresses working right here in their home,
in the USA is not a bargain.
Not if I want to pay my busy moms what they deserve
when I demand such a high standard from them!
If my products have a manufacturing defect you may return it for repair,
a full refund, or a replacement(at the discretion of Snap-EZ ® Inc.)
Snap-EZ ® will pay for the shipping in this case.
If you want to return an item for a reason other than a defect,
I will accept these items for an in store credit

on your Pay pal payment once your returned item arrives!
If you return an item for a credit card refund,
we will deduct a 10% restocking fee.
(it takes time to re-list returned items for resale, if they are re-sellable!).
***If you are ordering a new size for the first time,
please only wash one item to check sizing to save you if the sizing is not correct and you need to send them back!
If it has been slightly used, then I will setup an in store credit for 85% of the original price,
(I have to sell these as seconds at a lower than retail price).
In these cases, you are responsible for the shipping costs.
I can not accept returns that smell strongly of detergent/smoke or animals.
Please contact Ruth if you need to return an item so we can better serve you!

If you paid via Credit Card (not through Pay pal)
AND I get your request before your transaction has been processed

then I can cancel all or part of your order.
If you contact me before your order ships and after the deadline,
I will refund all or part of your order amount less 5% or the original order amount.
This measure is to cover the fees I incur when processing refunds.
However, if you choose to have the refund amount set up as an in store credit,
you will not incur any fees!
Orders can be delayed for many reasons - postal holidays, our missing the mailman, weather conditions, and just plain "who know what." We try to give you an approximate day to expect your order, but please allow 30 days for your order, as we can not file a claim on insured packages until after 30 days to allow for delays in shipping. Most delayed orders will reach their destination within a week of our estimated arrival date, but we have had domestic orders take up to 4 weeks to arrive and international orders take up to 5 weeks to arrive. So hang tight, you should get your order soon, If it has been order 30 days, please contact us immediately as we can begin your claim!
