He was just 6 pounds 2 ounces and none of the diapers we had fit him! So I started looking online and reading other moms suggestions for diapers that fit small baby's well and purchased a few of your newborn Sandy's. They quickly became my favourite diaper and when my son outgrew them we moved on to the small size.
At the same time we needed some larger diapers for my oldest son and purchased some Sandy's in the large size. We now have a third son who at 2 months just outgrew his newborn Sandy’s and is now wearing the small ones. We've never had a problem with leaks or poo blow outs and the design is great as our boys have skinny legs and most diapers are left gapping open. I also love that they are made right here in Canada!
We are slowly changing all of our diaper stash over to Sandy's and when someone asks me about cloth diapering they are the ones that I always recommend. I have a small blog and have done reviews of all the diapers we have tried over the years and Sandy's comes out on top.
Thanks for creating such a great product!

Thank you so much Mother-ease!!
I was introduced to your diapers through a mom's group and I never went back to the other brands! It truly is the 'workhorse' diaper in the sea of diaper companies. My husband and I both love telling people the wonderful things about cloth diapering. I did the math and in our situation, figure that we are saving an estimated $1600 per child! Thanks for your genuine quality and family oriented company!!
T. & C. Czapla - November 23, 2010
Awesome! We love your products!
Thanks for all you do,
L. Kemme - November 16, 2010
I am just thrilled your company has grown & thrived since we first used your diapers 7 years ago for our first son. We are looking forward to continuing to Cloth diaper our second one due in Jan!
Bernetta - November 15, 2010
I just wanted to add that I love you diapers so much that I personally took them to my birth center today and introduced them to the midwives-They LOVED them. They raved about the quality and affordability..and I filled them in on their superior performance. I hope they consider selling them in their retail store :-).
A. Bennett - November 11, 2010
I first want to thank you for making such high quality and affordable cloth diapers. I have wasted much time, money and energy on other diapering systems before finding your company. I then immediately sold all of my diapers from other brands (some were twice as much as yours but the quality was far inferior) and purchased a full set of sandys (small and large), one size and AIOs. Im looking forward to the birth of my second child (even though my first is only 10weeks old) so that I will get to buy the cute newborn sized sandys ?. Considering my love and trust in your company to provide such high quality goods, I will only shop here for my cloth diapering needs! And, I wanted to know if your company sold, or had any plans to manufacture/sell, cloth menstrual pads (I find it strange my son is in cloth and I am in disposables)? If your company doesn’t make this product, then I will wait until it does before I switch to cloth myself! I won’t trust any other company! Motherease-you have a customer for life!!
A. M. Bennett - November 5, 2010
We really do love and appreciate our MotherEase, I love how easy they are to use and how our LO never blows out even with an overnight super-wet diaper.
H. Hunholz - November 2, 2010
Thank you for your great customer service I have always received through your website. We love your products and I am now diapering my third child with Sandy’s and Airflows.
S. Bergtold - October 29, 2010
Thanks again! Time and time again, these are the best covers!
T. Murray - October 25, 2010
I wanted to thank you for your wonderful diaper system. I've tried about 6 different modern cloth diapers on my baby, and yours are the only ones I trust not to leak. Especially with his breastfed poos!
H. Rawluk - October 21, 2010
I've been a customer for 5 years & 3 kids & I recommend your product to Everyone!
S. Bernholz - October 12, 2010
I'd just like to say how much I love your diapers. I tell everyone considering cloth diapering to go for it and also how much I love the ones I got. I have 3 different sizes of the Sandy's diapers, the one size diapers and some training pants! I am on my second child in cloth diapers, my daughter wore them since birth and was potty trained at 21 months old (something I credit to wearing cloth diapers!). My diapers are brilliantly white despite being pooped in on many occasions. They wash amazingly well and nothing beats the smell of diapers dried on the line in the sun!
Thank you for making such a great product that stands the test of time and many, many washings!
L. McNeill - October 8, 2010
First I have to say that I LOVE YOUR DIAPERS AND COVERS!! I have used them for over 15 years and your diapers and covers are superior to anything I've ever tried.
K. L. Sietsema - October 8, 2010
I want to thank you again for the great costumer service and quick shipping. I am excited to say that our Mother-ease diaper/cover is proving to be leak-free at night! This is a vast improvement from what we have been experiencing.
T. Harrington - October 8, 2010
I just wanted to write and say thank you all for your exceptional customer service and products.
I've been using Mother-ease diapers for 13 months now and love them. I have a daughter who is 13 months, and another due in just 2 weeks, that is why we are buying the newborn diapers. I use the one-size diapers on my daughter everyday and I absolutely love them! I can't wait to get the newborn ones as I feel they will be the same great product. I was in Korea when I first ordered the diapers and they came in about 4 weeks. I am grateful that you deliver to APO, since we are military, it allows us the opportunity to use cloth diapers and at a great price! Thanks again, we love your company and we continue to recommend it to everyone who asks about cloth diapers
D. Neely - October 5, 2010
I LOVE your swim diapers. I wish i had found them sooner!!! I would like to share this seemingly hidden treasure of a find with other mom's in my swim class. Your suits really are the best - the only ones that don't scrape my skin or pull at my swimsuit while we 'swim'.
Canadian made is so important to me and you are practically down the road from my Hamilton home.
J. Neiser - September 20, 2010
Hi, I just wanted to say that I received these swim diapers Saturday and was able to take the kids swimming Sunday. LOVE THEM! These are the best swim diapers ever. Very impressed with your products and your communication. Will definitely recommend them to others. Thank you!
C. Nilsen - September 13, 2010
We love love love the diapers. After just a few days of getting used to them (e.g., learning to not leave the tags hanging out in the back, making sure every little bit of cloth at the back of the legs was tucked into the wrap, and folding the absorbent liners in half and placing them only in the front--i.e., the "high traffic" wetting area--instead of laying them flat), it was really smooth sailing for 2-1/2 years. After those first few days, they never ONCE leaked on us that I can remember, even overnight. We're looking forward to using them again and again.
K. A. Hamberg - August 25, 2010
I have used your diapers for my son and loved them. He is learning how to use the potty and let me say, We LOVE your training pants. They are the first ones I grab and are the most comfortable. Thanks for making such great products ?
L. Fornell - August 20, 2010
My wife and I use the Sandy's and toddlese with our boys and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the diapers, did I mention we love them? They have survived one boy and are doing well into the second child.
R. Lavender - August 17, 2010
I just wanted to say how brilliant your birth to potty nappy is. I have been using Terry squares since my daughter was 7 weeks old, and find them pretty inconvenient, so ended up putting my baby back into disposables. I am a nanny and my daughter comes to work with me, so can you imagine having to take all those terry nappies with me. I have used washable nappies for years with my job, I really wanted to use them on my baby but I was not happy by far with the brands that I had used, most leaked, I found terry squares with a good wrap did not, I then looked into all these stuff able Velcro brands, and everyone I spoke to said they were lucky to get a years constant wear out of them.
After enough research I decided motherease looked the best. Well from the moment they went on my baby they fitted perfectly, did not leak and were thin to carry out and take as many as needed for the day. As you can imagine being a nanny I not only have all the nappies to take out for my bosses children, but the nappies for my child, so that's allot of nappies, especially if you use washables, but I found with the motherease birth to potty you can have as many of these out as you would have disposable, and my daughters nursery have no issues using them what so ever, but they would have had with the terry squares. Even my husband who could not change terry nappies now changes our daughter no problem at all.
All I would say is, maybe sell packages that adapt to an individual family. I called allot of places to get bulk buy deals, but even buying in bulk when you looked at the cost each nappy worked out the same as buying individually.
Many thanks again
Sarah August 16, 2010
Thanks for the Sandy''s Introductory Offer! It was nice to test the size and absorbency before making this order.
H. Wight - August 8, 2010
6 years and three babies later, our diaps still look new. Not a snap dislodged. Not a stain. And they have been heavily used on three boys who refuse to potty train. Used them from infancy till somewhere in the toddler twos… love ‘em.
A. Kenyon - July 15, 2010
I just wanted to let you know how much I love your diapers. I first heard of them through my birthing teacher in 2003. She had used the One Size diapers for her first child and was using the same ones for her second. She showed me how easy they were to use, and I was sold!
Here I am, 7 years later, expecting my fourth baby, and still using Mother-Ease Diapers! Of course, the ones I bought 7 years ago have gone to diaper heaven, but I did use them for my first two children.
I just purchased more for the new baby and some large covers for the toddler. I absolutely LOVE your diapers and recommend them to anyone who comments on them or is interested in using cloth diapers. I have tried MANY other brands, and yours is (by far) the best in quality, ease of use, durability, and leak prevention. The prices are reasonable, too!
I also recommend the biodegradable diaper liners - they make cleaning poopies a breeze! I ordered them for the first time this spring, and, boy, do I wish I would have ordered them sooner!
Needless to say, if I were having more children after this one, I would definitely continue to buy more Mother-Ease! I am definitely a long-term customer, and will continue to recommend your products long after this last baby is out of diapers.
Very Sincerely Yours,
C. Ogle - July 9, 2010
Love your one size system! 4 years, 2 kids and counting...still in great shape!
B. Telesmanich - June 27, 2010
Your diapers are now on our second child after being in storage for many years. They're such a great product. Thanks!
K. Darragh - June 13, 2010
When my son was four months old, I purchased my set of Mother-ease cloth diapers and covers second-hand from a woman who had barely used them. I fell in love immediately! My son was a hefty 9lbs 15oz at birth and it was great to have diapers that I knew he would fit in and grow into. He has worn them for the better part of two years and only now that he is potty-training have I stopped using them. I laundered them myself, rather than spending the extra money on a service and they cleaned up wonderfully, especially in the summer when they would refresh and bleach in the sun.
I can't say enough about them and recommend Mother-ease to everyone who mentions cloth diapering. Now that we are finished with them, I have posted them to sell third-hand and they are still in fantastic enough shape to do so!
Monica V. W. - June 8, 2010
Your diapers are the best! Thank you.
M. Holtschulte - June 4, 2010
Dear Erika and Rick
Wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you for coming up with the Mother-ease Nappies.
My three girls (and there ain't no more!) have all been through them from birth to potty training at the age of two. I am a bit sentimental about my nappies now and am hanging onto them to pass onto to someone special.
Here are some snaps of my three; Erin (6), Tara (4) and Isla (2) and the one set of 20 Mother-ease One Size that they have all shared....and they still look great!
M. Cutts - May 30, 2010
Thanks for the introductory offer I have heard nothing but great things about your diapers and I look forward to trying them firsthand!
E. Konrad - May 24, 2010
Hi there. when i had my 3rd baby i needed a new set of cloth. I decided to go with the bamboo but at that time you couldn't really give me much feedback or testimonials. so i just wanted to let you know that they are fantastic. love them. i've used/tried most of your products already and was extremely happy with everything. but the bamboo wash much better, stay softer longer and seem somewhat more absorbent. I've been using them for over a year now.
C. Bereznai - April 22, 2010
Mother-ease diapers are hands down the best diapers out there. I have been using my One sized (13 of them) full time since 2004 and they are still going strong. The all in ones I am replacing are ones I bought second hand in 2006 and have used into the ground. I tell everyone I talk to about cloth diapers that nothing compares to the quality and durability of Mother-ease. Thanks for such a great product.
T. Nicholas - April 7, 2010
I did want to tell you how much I love your product. I have tried several different covers and the mother-ease covers are by far the best. I troubleshooted with the makers of the other covers about wetness and leaking and nothing worked. When the covers leak, it definitely makes you reconsider cloth diapering. I didn't have that difficulty at all with the Rikki covers.
So thanks for making a great (Canadian-made) cover! I will absolutely recommend you to others.
S. Boland - April 6, 2010
We have been using the one-size-fits-all Mother Ease diapers on our (now) 18-month old son since he was born.
We are huge fans of your diapers, and have recommended them to a bunch of our friends. Thanks for having such great products!!
C. Metcalfe - March 31, 2010
I can not tell you how happy I am with the products, service and shipping times! The products are absolutely wonderful!
H. Graham - March 29, 2010
Thank you! You have incredible customer service and I am so grateful that you caught the mistake before another order was shipped. Also, I wanted to tell you how adorable the swim diapers are! They are fantastic and are clearly made with care.
K. Hallman - March 21, 2010
Thank you for the speedy processing. The covers arrived in our rural mailbox on Thursday.
That is extremely fast service from both you and Canada Post.
Thank you for sending the specified prints - they are so cute.
B. Keith - March 21, 2010
Coming back for wraps 9 years after my first. Your products are awesome
Tanis N.-R. - March 19, 2010
Thanks for all your help!
Just wanted to add that I really do love the motherease diapers. I tried about 6 different brands of fitteds and because of a thread in diaperswappers decided to try motherease as well. They are now my favorite! Especially for nights, as they are so simple that I can even change them in the dark. When we have another baby I'll be itching to add some more motherease to our stash, especially some colors, and I haven't tried the stay dry doublers yet, I want to try those someday as well.
Thank you for making such great products!
H. Moser - March 17, 2010
Thanks for such a wonderful product!!
D. Martens - March 13, 2010
I used these diapers for my last 2 kids. Now my daughter Anna wants to use them. Mine were lost in my big move...
Great diapers...I have 8 kids and have used many kinds.
A. Dix - March 7, 2010
I'm very excited to try your products :) My baby is due this weekend!
Keep up the great work.
A. Falcke - March 4, 2010
I wanted to let you know that I have been a satisfied customer of Mother-ease for years!
I originally purchased a set of 25 one size fits all cloth diapers after seeing your ad in Mothering Magazine when I was pregnant with my first son 3 1/2 yrs ago. I now also have a 1 1/2 yr old boy and both are still wearing the original set I purchased from you (yes, unfortunately my 3 1/2 yr old is still in diapers!). They still look new and are super absorbent. I have been so happy with them and passed on your info to a friend of mine who is pregnant and wanted to go cloth. She just purchased a full set of one size fits all from you.
My 1 1/2 yr old who likes to use the diapers as a pillow after they just come out of the dryer as I'm folding them. I thought you might like to see a photo.
Thanks for a great product and a great cloth experience. I'm so happy I was able to have a successful experience using cloth for both of my children.
S. O'Neill - February 24, 2010
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the mother-ease diapering system: All of my children have been cloth-diapered, but it wasn't until my most recent pregnancy that I looked into getting some mother-ease dipes, as many of our "medium" sized dipes had stretched-out elastics and worn-out velcro closures, as they were used on my older daughters. I wanted to try diapers and covers with snap closures b/c I think they last longer than "hook and loop" closure diapers.
For the newborn period, I have one xs sandys diaper in my stash which I loved using (I only wish I had more!). It fit great around my baby's skinny legs and never left red marks as some diapers can do. We have now moved on to our new stash of 10 sandys smalls and 5 medium airflow covers which my mom and mother-in-law purchased for us, and 3 meos which I purchased gently used. Thanks to the generous cut of the airflow cover, I am able to get away with using the mediums even though my newest daughter is just about 10 lbs. at 2 months. I love that your diapers stay very soft wash after wash, and the elastics are holding up very well. The absorbency level is great too. What is also important to me is that they are completely dry after one cycle in the dryer- I like to tumble dry on low to preserve the life of the elastics. (the organic sandys does take a little longer to dry, but I just lay it on top of dryer or changing table to completely dry)
Thank you so very much for a great product. I will never buy another brand of cloth diaper besides mother-ease, and I have tried almost every brand of fitteds & covers there are, from the popular "Competitor" and "Competitor" to the pricey "Competitor". Your diapers work best for us, hands down!
S. Krumpfer - February 23, 2010
Hello. I first tried Mother-ease cloth diapers when my daughter was born back in 2003. I got the complete package with the One Size unbleached diapers. I was a bit leery about using cloth at first, it was very intimidating especially that I had never even changed a diaper before! But it turned out that even my husband was raving about how easy the one size was! Every time I washed them, no matter the "stuff" they had been through, they came out clean and smelling fresh. My daughter never had a diaper-related diaper rash the whole time we used them. At about fourteen months (since she was a gigantor!), I switched her over to the Toddle-ease, another great diaper product. Now we have a little boy and, six years later, I hauled out the same cloth diapers I had used with my daughter. I am still amazed at how tough they are and, aside from some loss of absorption because I had dryed them in the dryer for the first six months I had them, they still work great and show no signs of wear-and-tear. I have supplemented them with some new stay-dry on cotton liners. I have to say, that is a great product too, I love them, they augment the diaper's absorbancy and make it easy to clean up after messes.
I also decided to try the Sandy's diapers since I noticed they had won an award. Wow - if we have another baby, I will definitely invest in a complete Sandy's package. They are incredibly soft and absorbant, My son smiles when I put one on, I think he really likes them too! What more could I ask? I'm just glad you offer such a superior product at such a reasonable price. Keep up the good work!

Les meilleurs couches lavables, tout simplement! Sans Mother-Ease, je ne sais même pas si bébé porterais des lavables...

I LOVE MOTHEREASE THERE SO FREAKING EASY TO USE, I WANNA WEAR THEM... LOL... OKAY MAYBE NOT, I'M CRAZY!!!
I. Bahamund - January 3, 2010
My girlfriend emailed asking me about our cloth diapers we have used on our three children ages 1 1/2, 3 1/2, 6. The email below is my reply.
Yes, we use Mother-ease. Ordered the One Size with Air Flow Covers (Convience package) this same time 6 years ago days before *DD#1* arrived.. :) ...and the same set is currently being used; in fact one diaper with a liner and air flow cover is out on River right now on a snow machine with *DH* and another is upstairs with *DD#2* in her crib as she is napping (*DD#2* is still little enough that the liners don't get used for her yet). My point is that they have worked out excellent for us and one of the best choices we made when we entered the world of kids. The diapers have saved us tons of $$ and our family has significantly cut our diaper pollution contribution from what most average families offer. Makes us proud.
We chose the One Size because it is overall less $$ because the diaper grows with the kid, (with many other cloth diapers - even Mother-ease styles, there are different diapers with each size kid) but with One Size we only change the cover by size and only need one or two of those a day so really easy to keep organized. This one-size style is actually really nice right now with two kiddos of different ages using the same diapers because we can just pack "diapers" when we travel and do not have to worry about how many for which one etc....it is just easy which is super important with kids.
Not sure what to say about how many to order; get the quantity you think is best for you and your little angel.
Dan and I choose the Convience package (largest quantity for the one-size and we even ordered extra air flow covers at the time) because we knew we wanted to be committed to cloth and that if we did not order enough it would allow us the excuse to use disposables and we were concerned we would sway away from our committment....so we jumped in fully loaded with cloth diapers, two great diaper pails (from home depot) with sealable lids (one 1/2 size pail for traveling), a good set of yellow kitchen gloves, a brand new toilet brush and some good nature safe toilet bowl cleaner and a nice good size drying rack.
the only problem we have ever had with diapers is that *DD#1* was totally allergic to every type of disposable diaper - the chemicals caused her a chemical burn every time she peed in one. We have not had any of those problems with cloth; the only thing we had to sort out with cloth is it took us awhile to realize that Tide detergent,
free and clear, is the best detergent for our kids and that it only takes 1/4 of the normal amount of soap to completely clean the diapers. The other thing was that we never have dried our diapers in the drier; they always go on the drying rack (butt side facing the sun) and the sun bleaches the poop stains totally out, the lack of using the dryer keeps the dryer from pulling all of the fabric out of the cloth diapers so they still are in great shape and ALSO we never have used any type of bleach or fabric softner. We do “Strip” the diapers about every 6 months in hot water with some vinegar or baking sods (sometimes both) and the reason why and how to is all on the care tab of the Mother-ease site.
Ok, lots and lots on these diapers; sorry; I just love them and both *DH* and I are so happy to know that you and *your husband* are going to use these and we know you will love them as well!!
Love your diapers and they are still working strong.... hoping to talk my husband into one more kiddo which would be #4 to use our one set of diapers. I am sure the diapers can handle this extra kid but my stay at home husband is not sure that he can so we will have to wait until everyone grows a bit a re-evaluate. :)
