Pooters Cloth Diapers: A Nighttime Fitted Review

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

**CONGRATS, ELISHA & CAROLINE!**

Recently I reviewed the new Tiny Tush hemp fitted and gave it a thumbs up for absorbency and cost.  I stand behind my recommendation but I have found a hemp fitted that works much better on my skinny guy that nurses all night lately :) .

Pooters cloth diapers is owned by a sweet and super helpful (she answers many questions on my Facebook fan page) mama named Maj.  Maj owns and operates an online and a brick & mortar cloth diaper retail store in Carrollton, TX (not quite opened yet).  I wish she would have been there when I lived in the area!

Maj’s journey into the cloth diaper world was natural, as her and her husband were “greenies” before baby arrived.  Not sure if “greenies” is a word but it’s a compliment.

When their son was born they faced the same issues we all experienced.  A completely foreign world with very incoherent language.  To a newbie what in the world is a fitted, snappi, stay-dry, AI2- all in two, dry/wet pail…and don’t even get started with the confusing abbreviations found on the Diaperswappers FSOT (for sale or trade).

All those terms and abbreviations on top of leaking diapers can lead a new parent straight to disposables.

Anyways, I digress.  Maj knew she could come up with an easy solution for everyone.  A simple solution.

Here is an excerpt from the letter that Maj sent me:

My feature product is the Pooters One Size Organic Hemp Fitted diaper (MSRP $14.00). This diaper is a real workhorse- super absorbent, naturally antibacterial, and when paired with a great fleece or wool cover, makes for a great overnight cloth diapering pairing.

I love a workhorse diaper.  That way I don’t feel a bit sad when it gets stained or excessively used.  I also love an inexpensive diaper.  Yes, Pooters cloth diapers are made in China.  I realize that there are some cloth diaper companies that take very good care of their overseas employees.

My review details

Fabric: I’m not familiar with the names and terms that go with different fabrics. If you say hemp I think that always means the same thing.  Apparently, I’m wrong.  Pooters hemp is a course hemp as opposed to the Tiny Tush Trim which was soft.  I prefer the Pooters.  Reason is, I don’t like too much stretch and I “feel” like it absorbs more.

Fit: Really, this is silly, but I sort of want to cry that FINALLY someone made a snap configuration that is PERFECT for my child.  Can you sense that I’m grinning right now? I am.  If you have a skinny child Pooters will be perfect for you.  If you have a chunky one it’ll probably fit the same ;)  My problem with the Tiny Tush was that I could almost wrap the tabs around Sterling’s waist.  This is great if you need the extra room.

Absorbency: Sterling has been nursing C.O.N.S.T.A.N.T.L.Y. lately. In case I wasn’t clear, I’m an open-all-night milk bar, sort of against my selfish will. We all know that the more you drink the more you pee.  A doubled up Flip works fine but is super bulky.  Pooters is trim (like most hemp diapers) and yet absorbs a ton.

I will be totally honest with you, right after (like literally) I posted my review on Tiny Tush Sterling started nursing all night.  After a night of this the Tiny Tush was over-saturated and consequently soaked the Thirsties cover.

I haven’t had this happen with Pooters yet…I say yet because you just never know what great feat my son will tackle tonight :D

It’s worth noting that I only washed the Pooters hemp one time before using it.

Cost: $12. Heck, I spend more than that on my family at Starbucks. Which is pathetic, I know.  At $12 it’s worth the gamble, and you know nighttime cloth diapering is just that- a gamble.

To help spread the word about Pooters cloth diapers, Maj has offered to give 1 away to you! But, that’s not all *must say in the proper commercial voice* I am giving one away to you also!

I will randomly select a name on Friday (4/16/10).  Here are the ways you can enter: **separate comments**

1) Become a fan of Pooters cloth diapers on Facebook

2) Head on over to Pootersdiapers.com and tell me your favorite brand she is currently carrying…

3) Tell me what she needs to carry!

    My two granddaughters (4.5 and 2.5) have always worn and are still wearing disposables (grrrr), but there was no way I could convince my daughter on cloth. Once my son announced “they” were expecting, I offered to make cloth diapers for the baby due in early June. So, I’m currently making two dozen diapers based on the Grasshopper style/fabric which you recommended and I agreed look like a fantastic diaper. Hopefully my daughter-in-law will agree after she tries them out on new baby (hope its a boy! shhh). Because I’ve read (your newsletters) that you need a variety of styles and fits and absorbency, I’ve become a fan of Pooters on Facebook. They look like they can hold lots! Hopefully after trying one (wink wink) I will stay a fan. And, I’m thinking that it would definitely be worth purchasing a half dozen instead of making them because it was such a hassle to get the different fabrics and snapper and snaps etc here in Canada. Thanks for making it a lot easier to learn about the “world of cloth diapers” via your newsletter.

    I’d like to try it- but I don’t know, every hemp diaper I’ve ever tried felt scratchy to me, and seemed to hold in smells…..

    I have found an inexpensive “workhorse” diapering system that works so well right now on my 4 month old daughter- motherease sandy’s! I also have a few motherease one size dipes, love them too. Their airflow snap covers are also great b/c no hook-and-loop closures that get worn out, like my bummis covers would. So I just fold an infant size (up to 15 lbs) prefold and stick it into a sandy’s diaper, and viola! Super-absorbent night-time solution, for a baby that nurses through the night. I have cloth-diapered 3 children so far, and finally found the perfect diapers for us :) Sorry to turn this into a review LOL
