Last December, I won 2 hemp fitted diapers from Pooters through a contest on Swap Mamas. It was love at first sight! They’ve become my go to diaper for nights and have NEVER let me down. Anytime I hear a mama say she doesn’t cloth diaper at night because of leaks……I tell her about these diapers! They are seriously bullet proof. You don’t even understand how happy I am to now have 3 of these diapers in my stash!
Pooters is an online shop and retail store in Texas that sells cloth diapers and specializes in providing simple, easy to follow, cloth diapering information. It’s run by a WAHM who is ALWAYS available by email to answer any cloth diaper question you may have! You’ll love the costumer service you get from this place…..it’s top notch!
I was generously sent the new 2.0 version of the Pooters Organic Hemp Fitted Diaper (although you can choose bamboo if you prefer) to try out on Grady, and I was especially interested to see how it would compare to the older version. It’s a one size diaper with a fold over rise, which confused me a little at first since I’m so used to the typical snap down rise. It’s actually pretty easy….you just fold down the front of the diaper, snap it to the 2 snaps on the front to expose a new row of snaps that you then use to fasten around your baby like normal. Sounds complicated, but it’s really quite simple. Once folded down, the diaper becomes super tiny, so you’ll really only need to use the fold down rise for a newborn or small infant. It fits Grady great unfolded with lots of room to grow. For reference, he’s about 21 pounds and 17 months old.
It works just as well as the older version for us at night. Grady goes to bed around 7 p.m. and wakes for good around 7 a.m. He’s in the diaper (with a fleece or PUL cover) that entire time. I’ve never once experienced a leak. The diaper comes with a snap in insert AND a doubler for extra protection. I usually use both…..just in case, since he sleeps next to me and wet sheets are no fun!
There’s really not much difference between the old and new version except the new fold over rise. The older version didn’t have it, although now that I think about it, you could probably fold that one over, too. It just doesn’t have the snaps to keep it folded down. It’s a little roomier, so I imagine it will fit Grady longer than my other ones. It’s also a tad bit softer, too. Hemp, by nature, is a little rough. It’s never bothered Grady one bit, but you could always add a fleece or flannel liner if you needed. You could also just choose the bamboo version, which is softer but not quite as absorbant.
