Congratulations, Sonja B! You were selected as the winner via random.org.
Raise your hand if you’re ever satisfied with your nighttime cloth diaper routine?
Mine’s not raised. Trust me I loved the Sustainablebabyish bamboo fitteds but one day I just up and decided to sell them all. I’m strange like that.
It wasn’t until the night after I shipped them off that I realized I had put myself into a desperate situation. I don’t know about you but I have to really trust a diaper before I’ll use it at night. I mean, do I really want to change a diaper in the middle of the night or worse my sheets??
So when I received the new Tiny Tush Trim 4.0 hemp fitted I was nervous. There’s no sweat using it during the day. The worst that happens is a change of clothes. I put it to an extreme daytime test, however.
Hold that thought. Let me tell you a little bit about the Tiny Tush Trim 4.0 hemp fitted first.
- Extremely adjustable. The Tiny Tush trim fitted is designed to be used from the newborn stage (without the snap in liner), to the crawler stage and on to toddler-hood. The snap in liner can also be used inside a newborn cover as a diaper. No doubt that with Sterling this will be a true one-size. Plenty of room to grow and it fits in the waist. An annoyance that comes with one-sized diapers and tiny waists.
- Very soft organic cotton/hemp fabric. 100% hemp would be stiff and scratchy. The addition of 20% organic cotton to the blend results in a squishy soft (not bamboo soft but cozy sweatshirt soft) and stretchy fabric.
- Super trim. The Tiny Tush trim fitted lives up to it’s name. Even with the rise snapped down and the snap-in folded in the front, the diaper is t.r.i.m. This is the beauty of hemp.You need less layers to get the job done.
- Absorbent. As expected with hemp, the absorbency is excellent. Hemp is a naturally anti-bacterial, super absorbent fiber that is grown free of pesticides and fertilizers. This site has some great information on hemp.
- Hidden snaps. Beautiful.
- Workhorse. Pretty cloth diapers are great but everyone needs a diaper that you could literally put through a ringer 100x and it still functions. Hemp is the fabric for that. Durability is a great thing for a one-sized diaper. I know a few one-sized brands that unfortunately break down well before the child outgrows them.
- AFFORDABLE!! I just noticed that my friend LeAnn of Gigglebritches is selling the Tiny Tush Trim 4.0 for an introductory price of $16.15!!!! (Half dozen for $93.90!) Guys, that is an amazing price for a one-sized cloth diaper.
- Made in the USA.
Back to my daytime use marathon. I put the Tiny Tush trim fitted on Sterling late morning. He took a nap, woke up during lunch preparation, after lunch we had to quickly leave the house while Daddy hosted a webinar, played at the park–oh, oops forgot to change his diaper– came home, griped at encouraged the kids to clean up their playroom and finally realized that I had not changed his diaper in a long time (long like this sentence).
I remember feeling his diaper periodically thinking that it didn’t “feel” wet. Obviously, this is a tactic I learned from sposie days because this trick doesn’t work with a cloth diaper. Duh.
Anyways, I finally change his diaper and although very wet there was still room for more wetness. The very back of the Tiny Tush Trim was dry. Not bad. If it lasted all day then I trusted it for nighttime.
I have since used it every night that it is clean. Which is about 2x/week. Tiny Tush Trim 4.0 hemp cloth diapers will require a few washes to reach full absorption potential. I began using mine after 1 wash and have seen a steady increase in it’s fluffiness.
These are fitted diapers so they do require a cover. I have used So Simple, Thirsties and Flip over the Tiny Tush Trim 4.0. Because of the uber-trimness any cover will most likely work. You can even tuck in the “ruffles” if they happen to overhang the cover.
