Tender Tushies is run by a wonderful mama from Canada. Concerned about the high costs of cloth diapering with "premium" cloth diapers these days, she set out to find a more affordable solution for the average family. Thus, Tender Tushies was born and an affordable, great fitting diaper is available to you today.
I received this one-size pocket diaper in the Green Star print. I also received an adorable wet bag I will share about later. First, let's check out the features of this diaper.
Well, as I said it's a pocket diaper (my favorite cloth diaper style!). This diaper fits from birth to potty training age, and allows for you to adjust the rise using the 3 rows of snaps below the waist snaps. The wings have 2 waist snaps to attach to the top row of the front panel of the diaper. Each wing also has a hip snap to attach to the second row that also creates an ideal fit and helps avoid wing droop. Hip snaps are a must-have on my list! The pocket is located at the back of the diaper, and the lining is a soft micro fleece material. This diaper includes one insert made of 5 layers of thirsty microfiber.
The wings can actually overlap and snap to accomodate the tiny belly of a newborn and the leg openings are pretty darn small too. I really see no problem with this diaper fitting your average newborn, which can't be said with all one-size diapers.
The one small complaint I have is that the pocket opening is a bit small, and has elastic running all the way around it which constricts your hand as it goes in and out. This was certainly not a deal breaker for me with this diaper, and overall it doesn't bother me too much. I've found that folding the insert in half going through the pocket opening is really helpful too.
I really like the soft PUL and print of this diaper too. I feel like they've thought about almost everything an ideal cloth diaper should have, including the excellent price. You can easily get 2 Tender Tushies for the price of just one well-known pocket diaper brand. This diaper is really high quality, and you'll definitely be impressed.
With Buddy on the large end of the size spectrum at 35+ pounds, I can say this diaper certainly works for just about any age or size. We still have room to grow and this diaper is exceptionally trim with just one insert. As you can see it fits really well, and doesn't leave any gaps in the legs or waist. It also leaves no red marks which is a real plus too. It's just the perfect amount of absorbency for us if I decide to put him in a diaper while we're out, and he doesn't make it to the potty. We use 2 inserts at night, and generally are leak free unless he absolutely saturates the inserts, which is no fault of the diaper. Buddy likes to drink water like it's going out of style so he pees A LOT!
This wetbag has 2 waterproof zippered areas. This is perfect for storing dry and wet articles of clothing and cloth diapers within the same wetbag. The outside is a soft minky blue print with white polka dots that is backed with waterproof PUL. This wetbag measures 10 x 13 inches and fits approximately 6 diapers between the 2 areas. There is a small elastic loop in the top corner for hanging this wetbag from your stroller or door handle too. I really like the ease of having clean and dirty diapers in one bag, but still have them separate. It's convenient and definitely a smart design.
Price: Printed diaper - $10, Wetbag - $10
The Verdict: Love this diaper and wetbag! The diaper fits great, is super trim, has many awesome features, and you can't beat the price. The wetbag is ideal for daytrips and outings and everything is in one bag! I definitely recommend Tender Tushies for your cloth diapering needs, especially if you have a tight budget.
