In January I was contacted by Katie Garner of Oh Katy Diapers (formerly katydid diapers) to see if she could send me a sample of her new Oh Katy Diapers. Katie promptly send me a melon colored diaper (orange is my favorite color, BTW).
Oh Katy Diapers used to be called Katydid diapers. Katie decided to re-vamp her website and her diaper and now has an amazing product that is not only trim but the quality is superb.
The diaper construction is 95% Polyester, 5% TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). Many cloth diaper manufacturer’s are switching the water-proofness of their diaper to TPU (instead of PUL) as it is a safer product. TPU uses a heat process while PUL (poly-urethane laminate) uses a chemical and solvent process.
When I received my Oh Katy Diaper it came nicely packaged with the diaper, a newborn insert, and an adjustable insert along with complete instructions on how to use and how to wash the diaper. The diaper is a typical snap-rise adjustment with 3 rows of snaps in the front to control the rise (height) of the diaper. If you have a newborn all you need to do is use the newborn insert and stuff the insert into the front pocket of the diaper. My little guy is 2 so I used both inserts and stuffed the diaper. As Riley is very tall and slim I didn’t need to use the snap-rise adjustment. (I just left the diaper completely unsnapped.)
I thought initially that with 2 inserts stuffed inside the diaper that it would be bulky but I was amazed that it was so TRIM and fit Riley like a glove. I like using this diaper at night-time and Riley usually sleeps from 7pm-5:30 am the next morning. NO LEAKS with this diapering system, EVER!
The inside of the diaper that touches babies skin is a super soft microfleece. What is also
nice is that this diaper has newborn side snaps. This enables you to adjust the diaper for even a trim fit for a newborn. When the diaper is soiled you can ‘wrap-n-snap’ (see photo right) for a great way to reduce bulk when you are storing the soiled diaper in a wet bag. This features enables you to fit more soiled diapers in wet bags versus a traditional AIO (all-in-one) or pocket-style cloth diaper.
