I’m SO excited to share another new cloth diaper I was able to try out recently. I first heard of Tidy Tots from another cloth diaper blog, and they sounded so cool, I wanted to give them a try for myself.
Tidy Tots diapers were designed to make cloth diapering easy, especially for someone just starting out. They took two big cloth diaper “fears” (what do you do with the poop, and how do you put them on) and created simple solutions for both.
I was sent the 4 Diaper Snap Essential Set to review. This set came with two one size covers, four inserts, four boosters, one roll of flushies (flushable liners), and a wet bag. This is a great starter set to give Tidy Tots diapers a try.
Features: Adorable one size cover with snaps and flaps to hold inserts in place. Instead of rise snaps, the cover has incredible leg elastics that stretch as the baby grows. This makes it a customized fit without any guess work, and perfect for babies of any shape or size! The inserts are 100% organic hemp and come with a booster that fits inside if you need extra absorbency. Each insert has velcro on the back to hold the flushies in place, so they don’t bunch up.
Function: Overall, this is a very straightforward diapering system. Just wrap the flushable liner around the insert, snap the insert in place (you can pre stuff it with a booster for night or a heavy wetter), and you are good to go! If you change a poopy diaper, plop the poop (and liner*) in the toilet and throw the diaper in the pail or wet bag. The covers can be reused if they aren’t soaked or soiled, so you have less laundry.
The hemp inserts are very absorbent, and have an opening in the back for the booster to fit inside. The boosters agitate out in the wash, so you don’t have to unstuff them. The velcro holds the flushies in place, and then attaches to itself in the wash so it doesn’t snag other laundry. This is a great feature, because the biggest complaint about flushable liners in general, is that they bunch up and don’t catch all the poop!
Fit: My favorite feature of the Tidy Tots diaper was the leg elastics. Their ability to stretch without needing to adjust rise snaps keeps the diaper simple to put on. It’s perfect for the mom diapering two or more children in different sizes, because you don’t ever have to change the fit from a baby to toddler! It seemed to fit both kids well, without any extra adjustments. I love using these covers for night time diapering, because they have lots of space for extra stuffing, without leaving any leg or waist gaps. I haven’t had a leak in this diaper yet!
Overall I think this is a great cloth diaper! I love how you never have to worry about gaps around the legs, poopy diapers are very easy to clean, and the prints are adorable.
