Disclosure: This is a product review. I received a diaper for free from Little Monsters to facilitate this review.
Little Monsters was started by a stay at home mom who was fed up with her little one getting rashes from disposable diapers. She decided to produce a line of adorable, high-quality diapers that would be beneficial for our environment and our children. She also loved the idea of decorating those cute little bums!
Little Monsters has a super adorable collection of pocket diapers that are available in either solid colors or with their original designs embroiled onto the back. I was sent "Giraffe" for review.
So cute isn't it?! This is a one-size pocket diaper with an outside made of soft, waterproof PUL. There are four rise settings with two rows of waist snaps (10 snaps in each row). Each tab has 3 snaps on it (2 waist snaps and 1 hip snap to prevent wing droop). There are also crossover snaps to accommodate smaller babies. Below are photos of the diaper showing each rise setting.
This diaper is designed to fit babies from 9-35 pounds. In the photos below the diaper is snapped down to the smallest settings. It's leg openings are slightly more generous than some other one-size diapers which is probably why they specify 9 instead of 7 pounds. I think this diaper would likely fit a 9+ pound baby very well.
The inside of the diaper is made from super soft, stay-dry polyester microfleece. One triple-layer microfiber insert is included with the Little Monsters cloth diaper. This insert may or may not be absorbent enough depending on how much your child normally wets. There is a pocket opening in the back of the diaper for you to stuff your insert. The pocket channel is wide and very easy to stuff, which is especially great if you do find yourself needing a bit more absorbency. You'll have plenty of room to double up microfiber inserts or add a hemp insert if necesssary.
In terms of fit, we were able to get a great fit with our Little Monsters pocket diaper. The leg and back elastic is gentle enough not to leave deep red marks, but still contains messes. My little guy is currently 10 months old and a little over 22 pounds and we still have plenty of room to grow in our Little Monsters diaper.
Overall, Little Monster diapers are super adorable and great fitting cloth diapers! The quality is great and the embroidery is fantastic. I did have to add a hemp insert underneath the microfiber insert for extra protection against leaks since my little guy is a bit of a super soaker, but the standard insert may be adequate if you have a light wetter or smaller baby.
Buy it: You can purchase Little Monsters cloth diapers on their website for $22.99-$25.99.
