Lovin’ on my Twinkie Tush Teenie Tush Newborn Fitted

Newborn Cloth Diapers, Reviews

One of the things I love most about having a newborn is being able to use all these tiny cloth diapers! Sure, you could use one size diapers and save some money. But you won’t ever get the same great fit that you get out of a sized diaper.

Today, I want to talk about Twinkie Tush, one of my favorite hybrid fitteds. I purchased this diaper myself and my opinion is 100% my own.

I actually bought my Teenie Tush (which is Twinkie Tush’s newborn sized fitted) way back in August of 2015. It took me a while to get pregnant with Norah and I never stopped buying diapers even after my daughter, Sophia, potty trained.

Here’s the photo I shared on Instagram last year. I loved the print so much I bought it in two sizes! I actually have a number of Twinkie Tush Fusion fitteds and I’ve reviewed them on the blog in the past. The Twinkie Tush night night was and still is the most absorbent cloth diaper I’ve ever tested in my absorbency tests.

A little background on the Twinkie Tush Teenie Tush Fusion:

  • Available in serged and comfort turned leg elastics. The serged option allows for a better fit. The comfort turned is great for little ones that have sensitive skin or maybe have issues with getting red from elastics rubbing their sweet little chubby thighs.
  • Sized for approximately 5-12 pounds
  • Contains a hidden hydrophobic fleece layer to add a mild waterproofing. (This is what makes this a hybrid fitted or what Twinkie Tush calls a Fusion. Keep in mind that you still need a cover for complete waterproofing.)
  • Comes with a long folding soaker, and a single flare soaker made from 70% bamboo velour/ 30% organic cotton.

The Teenie Tush I have was made of a swimsuit knit outer. This has a very soft, smooth feel to it. The whole diaper is just smooshy, which I always love. It is also fairly trim for a newborn fitted. Keep in mind that fitteds in general are not the trimmest option out there. But that isn’t why you choose this option. You chose fitteds for breathability and super absorption.

During the day I just used the one folded soaker and no additional cover. I was able to let Norah (who is 8 weeks old today) go about two hours before the outside would begin to feel damp. At night, I used all of the included soakers (and a wool cover) and made it a good 6 hours. I don’t know if it could have lasted longer as I always changed her diaper by that point.

That photo is of Norah, at 11 pounds, in her Teenie Tush. I’m using the bottom row of snaps to get a good fit on her thighs. She is on the second to last snap. I would say 12 pounds is accurate for fit range.

I’d also like to note that I wash all my stuff in OxiClean. Doing so faded this particular fabric a ton, but otherwise did no other damage to the diaper. So while still very pretty, it is certainly not bright like it was when it was new. I can’t say if it still would have faded without the Oxi (and using just detergent). I just wanted to mention it in case you also use oxygen bleach in your cloth diaper laundry.

Twinkie Tush is a family owned, small business that is based right out of my home state of New York. I hope to one day make a trip to meet the owners, Mike and Gretchen as I’ve been blessed to also be able to work with them as sponsors of the blog.

Teenie Tushes are on the spendy side at around $29 a diaper. But for me they are worth it. You often get what you pay for. With these you are getting top notch materials, quality workmanship that will last through multiple children all while supporting a made in America business.

Resale value is also excellent, so you can recoup some of your money that way if you choose to. I like to just hoard most of my diapers, especially ones that are as pretty and well-made as Twinkie Tush.

New prints are stocked weekly. Follow Twinkie Tush on Facebook for all the stocking and preorder announcements. Shop in stock diapers at Twinkietush.com.

If you’ve ever tried a Twinkie Tush, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    You bought girl diapers before knowing you were going to have a girl?

    Their diapers are so cute! I haven’t had the chance to try them yet but I’m planning to use more fitteds this time around. I’ll definitely keep them on the list to try.
