CLOSED...Marlie and Me L-O-V-E Mom-preneurs #6: Pooters Cloth Diapers Review + Giveaway

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Momprenuers buttonThis is the last giveaway for my month-long blog event promoting mom-preneurs, and I hope you'll agree that I saved the best for last. This product is near and dear to me...literally and figuratively! Pooters is a cloth diaper company based in the Dallas Metroplex and you how much I love of cloth diapers!

Majaliwa Bass, the founder,
combined her countless hours of cloth diapering research with her business savvy to create Pooters. Her store only carry brands that meet her rigorous standards, including her own line. Maj gave me two Pooters diapers to try...

First up is the Pooters Organic Bamboo One Size Pocket Diaper. Pocket diapers are known to have a trim fit, but are my least favorite because they require that you stuff and remove inserts (try keeping your hands clean while separating an insert from the pocket after a messy bowel movement). The Pooters Pocket Diaper solves this problem with an extra wide opening so it's a cinch to stuff the insert, plus it separates itself in the wash! The insert and the diaper lining is made of bamboo/organic cotton making this diaper super absorbent, antibacterial, and oh-so-soft. Marlie's bum was dry, rash-free, and very happy in this diaper! This is a one-size diaper, but without the confusing array of snaps. You just adjust the rise and a pair of snaps on both sides of the wings to fit the waist. Voila...
perfect fit and no leaks! This is the closest I've come to being a fan of a pocket diaper.

Next we tried the Pooters One-Size Fitted Diaper. This diaper is made of hemp and comes with a snap-on liner and an extra doubler. I have some hemp inserts so I am familiar with this thirsty fiber. An entire diaper made from hemp is like wrapping your baby's bum in the most
absorbent material on Earth. I used the Pooters hemp fitted as Marlie's nighttime diaper instead of her usual bamboo fitted. In the morning, her bum was dry and the diaper was not soggy, whereas her bamboo diaper was always wet to the touch. The hemp fitted diaper is a workhorse! This diaper is a bit in the bulky side, but this didn't bother me since I was using it overnight. I will definitely be adding more of these to our stash!

From the website, I learned to not use fabric softener or dryer sheets, as this will negatively impact absorbency.Interesting!

If I won, I would choose the Pooters One-Size Fitted Diaper in hemp material

I had no idea that there were so many different materials for cloth diapers nor did I know that it mattered what detergents were used with them. I've not used cloth diapers before and I had no idea just how much there was to know!

If I won, I'd like the bamboo pocket diaper.

I learned that you shouldn't use pockets at night as they tend to leak--no wonder I haven't had success! I would love to try the pocket if I won
