I wanted a diaper cover that could act like a pocket diaper but not have to be washed at every diaper change. When I could not find anything that worked that way, I put the pen to the paper. After much trial and error, the Hiney Lineys system was born…
The Hiney Liney diaper is a one-size cover, all-in-two (Ai2) or all-in-three (Ai3) diaper. Use the versa cover over your favorite fitted diaper, with your favorite insert tucked under the snap-in liner, or use the All-In-Liney snapped onto the cover. The All-In-Liney has the insert sewn onto the snap-in liner. The versa cover comes in snap or hook & loop (velcro) in 9 different color options.
I was excited when Sheila agreed to offer a diaper for us to review for Back In Fluff. Then it came in the mail… We received the hook & loop diaper in the gorgeous seaspray color, with one chocolate liney! It was unlike anything I’d ever seen or tried, and I was, well, completely intimidated. I was afraid I’d do it wrong or mess it up and cause a complete mess. It sure was cute to look at though!
After looking at it in fear for a few days, I finally got on Hiney Liney’s website, watched the how-to video and felt comfortable enough to try it on Connor. I grabbed one of my favorite prefolds, tucked it under the liner and put it on him.
I am always a bit hesitant with velcro. While I like that it is easier and quicker to put on, often the velcro is much easier for Connor to unfasten. The velcro on the versa cover holds strong, making it difficult for Connor to remove, and has a laundry tab to avoid the dreaded “diaper chain”. The cover features 2 rows of snaps to adjust the rise for babies from newborn to potty training. The exterior of the cover is waterproof PUL and the inside of the cover is a wipeable water resistant layer of nylon. The liney is a soft suedecloth material, perfect against baby’s sensitive skin to wick away moisture. Lastly, the elastic is snug enough to hold in messes without leaving marks on waist and thighs.
I let Connor run around in it for a while, curious to see if the liner would keep the prefold in place. Then I put him down for nap in it, to test just how well it would work. The liner kept the prefold in place and he woke up with no leaks!! It definitely wicked away the moisture, and even though the prefold I used in it was soaked, the liner still felt dry. Each time I put Connor in this diaper I am confident he will stay dry with no leaks, which is a relief.
I am happy to say I am no longer afraid of the Hiney Liney, and am quite embarrassed at my original fear and hesitation! I am anxious to get a few more lineys so I can use this cover with my inserts/prefolds more often, although I do love that I can use it over the few fitted diapers I have! I’d also love to try the All-In-Liner and see how that works in comparison to the prefolds/inserts that I like to use with this diaper.
