***This is a review of the 1st generation Weehuggers. They have since released the 2nd generation!***
If you want an organic, earth-friendly, healthy, and trim cloth diaper for your child Weehuggers Bamboo All-in-Ones are an excellent choice.
There are a couple of features of Weehuggers that appeal to me: bamboo PUL (I didn’t even know that existed!), strong touch tape in the shape of cute hands, natural, earthy look, gussets and extreme softness.Lisa, the WAHM behind Weehuggers, has impressed me. Her desire to create a cloth diaper set apart from a lot of sameness out there makes Weehuggers more desirable.
Most of us would agree that cloth diapers are a healthy choice. But not settling for healthy and going for healthiest was the goal she must have had in mind.
At this point, most of you are probably familiar with bamboo. Here is an article written detailing the benefits of bamboo.
Weehuggers are very trim and very soft. When my husband was playing with Sterling the other day he said, “I like these diapers. They’re very outdoorsy looking.”
Gotta love it when you find a cloth diaper your husband comments on or notices for that matter!
Lisa states on the information you receive with your diaper that Weehuggers are for day-time use. The problem with using Weehuggers for an extended time is the wetness that occurs around the legs.
Because the gusset is bamboo and fleece lined the wetness is easily felt. But, you won’t see any red marks on your baby’s thighs with the gentleness of the gussets and elastic.
Weehuggers are an affordable price especially if you wanted to have a few for daytime. I don’t think there is any baby that could use these as a nighttime diaper. Sterling is a light wetter and can go 2 hours before I feel the wetness on the legs.
I add a doubler for extra absorbency and the diaper is still uber trim. Also the gussets do a great job of holding in poop…found that out this morning ;)
Weehuggers are also available as a cover. I have not tried them yet but would be worth it if your baby gets red marks from other popular PUL covers.
As far as washing goes:
There are no laundry tabs but I did receive tab covers that I put on after changing. This has not been a problem yet but we’ll see when I lose them!
Weehuggers are the fastest drying diaper in my stash (bg organic, sbish, grobaby mainly). After 5+ washes I am not seeing any wear issues w/ the tabs.
One of my favorite aspects of this diaper is the tight, snug, clean fit of the waist. Sterling is long and skinny. I have a size M and as you can see the tabs are crossed over. There has been no rolling in and scratching on his belly that often occurs with cloth diapers.
I apologize for the washed out pictures! But, hopefully you can get good feel for the look and fit of a Weehuggers Bamboo All-in-One.
