Review: Tyrilove SIO

Description: The Tyrilove SIO consists of a waterproof PUL outer, athletic wicking jersey interior lining and a snap in sandwich petal insert with booster. The inserts are made of hemp fleece  and topped with athletic wicking jersey (to match the interior lining). It features a snap-down rise with four different size settings and fastens around the waist with snaps. There are two snaps on each wing, to control waist and hip/leg opening size and one cross over snap at the waist as well to enable you to adjust it smaller should you need to. 

First impressions: Can we just talk about how super cool this print is? A true gender neutral print if I've ever seen one. I love the matching black snaps and the vibrant green interior. This nappy looks super trim, with silky PUL and very neat finishes. 

Ease of use: Snap-in-ones are of the easiest to use types - simply snap in the inserts and fasten onto baby. It is the ideal nappy for newbies to cloth, daycares, dads and grandparents. I found it washes up well and the athletic wicking jersey is stain resistant which is a bonus. Poop also rolls easily off the lining - if you're dealing with toddler poop, you'll appreciate this feature even more. The shell dries super fast (similar to a PUL cover or pocket shell), while the inserts, being natural fibres take a bit longer to dry. Hemp tends to dry stiffly, but because this insert is topped with athletic wicking jersey, it's not really an issue. 

Fit: The fit of this SIO is good on J, though I feel like he is just in between rise settings. As you can see below, it still looks good OTB though. There is still room to grow in the waist and the largest rise should fit a slightly bigger child too. For size reference, J is 103cm and just over 16kg. The side view is very trim on him - a great nappy for skinny toddler jeans. This nappy seems like it can size down quite small too (see pic above), so I feel like it will fit smaller babies well too especially given the lack of bulk. I haven't tried it on a smaller baby myself though. 

Value for money: I think these are well priced considering you get a handmade, custom nappy to your specifications. Obviously you do pay for the fact that it is a one of a kind item. 

Performance: J's output is a bit more variable these days, though still on the light to medium side and we have had no issues with leaks. From absorbency tests I did, the inserts will hold around 170ml making it suitable for light to medium wetters during the day. If your baby tends more towards the medium-heavy side I would add a booster.  I did not try this nappy for overnight, but it would only work if you have a fairly light night wetter. 

Overall impression: The Tyrilove SIO is trim, holds up well in comparison to other AIOs/SIOs and it's impeccably made. A great option for smaller babies and lighter wetting toddlers or for under closer fitting clothes.

I received this nappy free of charge for purposes of review, but was not compensated in any way for the review. While I aim to provide detailed, objective reviews of all the diapers that I've used, please bear in mind that this is my opinion and that every mom has her own preferences and every baby is built differently. So what works well for me and J, might not necessarily work well for you and your baby. J weighed 16.3kg and was 103cm tall when these photos were taken.
