I said I would compare the two brands of newborn cloth diapers we are using, and we already have a preference.
Tender Tushies is the company who we were informed about when we went to the diaper party. We did not purchase any new born diapers until about a month before the due date. We were also lucky to borrow a bunch of Tender Tushies – Tini Tushies from a friend who had a little one two months before us and he was now fitting into the regular sized ones. These diapers are for sizes 5lbs to 12lbs. This is the awesome part of cloth diapers, you can buy used and borrow from friends if you want to. Helps make it more cost effective again.
Kawaii Baby Diapers called pure and natural are the other brand we have been using and they are for 0 to 15 months or 6lbs to 22lbs.
Right away there is a huge difference in the sizes of the diapers. We jokingly call Everly our little sumo baby when she wears the Kawaii diapers because they are quiet bigger compared to the Tender Tushies. The girl looks like a mini sumo wrestler in them. Sadly you cannot tell so much in the photo of her wearing one of them. You can see that we have the diaper snapped to the smallest setting for the rise, and the velcro is pulled almost to the smallest setting.
Tini Tishies is made for new borns specifically. They fit much more snug. Which is great for Everly because she had tiny little legs when she first started wearing them. We were also able to fold the front of the diaper down and snap it so it would stay for the first little while, this was important because of her little belly button stump that needed to fall off still. These are also an all in one diaper, which means no stuffing them after every wash with liners and pulling them apart before washing them. Just chuck the whole diaper into the wash. Makes laundry much easier for me. We had one leak with these, but it was most likely from human error at 3am when we were zombies and didn’t notice we had not put the diaper on correctly. This could happen with a cloth diaper or a disposable. Oh well!
