If you’re the kind of cloth diapering mama that loves diversity in your diapering, you need to check out the TushMate cloth diaper, which I received courtesy of TushMate for review.
When you receive your TushMate cloth diaper and inserts, they each come in their own unique bag with diagrams and instructions. Very cute and giftable!
The TushMate cloth diaper transforms into five different styles!
You really have to see the TushMate in action, so this will be more of a pictorial review. Here’s the various ways you can use the TushMate :
1. All in Two – just place or snap the insert into the TushMate cover. And go!
2. Universal Cover – very similar to the AI2, but you just tuck the insert of your choice into the flaps on the diaper cover. I think this makes for a great way to store the diapers folded, however, it’s not my favorite style because if there is a mess…you can’t reuse the cover. Still, convenient and easy.
3. Pocket Diaper – tuck in the insert and there are inner snaps to help it stay put. Then snap the stay dry liner over the top.
4. All in Three – snap the insert in, then snap the stay dry liner over the top. This is how I prefer to use the diaper because I like the insert untucked with a stay dry top.
5. Hybrid Diaper – use a disposable insert in the cover, with or without the liner on top.
So, wow, that’s a lot of variety in diapering! Also with any of the cloth configurations you can add boosters / doublers to increase absorbency.
Other features of the TushMate cloth diaper:
Little snaps hold the diaper inserts and liner in place so there’s no bunching or shifting.
I like this diaper’s natural fiber inserts (hemp and organic cotton), and I think it’s fairly unique in having five ways to use it. Inserts come in long (hemp / organic cotton, doubled), or medium (organic cotton). I didn’t find the length to be much different between the two, and I thought they felt pretty soft.
The TushMate cloth diaper comes in either snap or hook / loop closures, both with one size snaps up the front. There are currently three colors to choose from (orange, blue, brown).
The fit of this diaper was great, and comparable to other one size covers I have used on my children. Easy to size up or down with the snaps, and a snug fit all around with elastics on the legs and back.
My baby is over 24 pounds and the TushMate is fitting him nicely with a bit more room to grow.
Find the TushMate cloth diaper at their online store, retailing for $16.58. Inserts and extra liners sold separately.
Since this a one size cloth diaper, it’ll also fit great on an older toddler. Check out the review of the TushMate Cloth Diaper at EcoBabyMamaDrama.com.
