A giveaway you won’t want to miss! A big thank you to our sponsor Beth at The Teeny Turtle.
I was sent an EcoPosh Fitted Diaper to review and I was very excited! I have been wanting to check out this diaper for quite awhile now. But first…a bit about our wonderful sponsor.
The Teeny Turtle is a company based out of Charleston, South Carolina and owned by Beth, who is just fantastic! Beth grew up with a marine biologist for a day, and since she was a daddy’s girl, they did a lot of “good for the environment” activities. While she started using disposable diapers when her son was born, after having a rash for 4 straight months, she made the switch to cloth diapers and never looked back.
When her son turned 16 months old, she went back to work….hating every minute of it. She started selling cloth diapers locally out of her home and was finally able to open the doors to the diaper service / retail store. Baby #2 decided to join the fun a month before the store was due to open. She began using cloth diapers immediately and haven’t used a disposable on him at all.
To help encourage more families to make the switch, Beth offers Diaper Demos and parties. If somebody isn’t able to make it into the store to check them out, she will schedule a time to go to their house and show them all of the different types of diapers.
The Teeny Turtle carries more than just cloth diapers. They also carry Mama Cloth, Teething Necklaces, Baby Carriers and the many accessories you may want or need like detergent and rash cream. Be sure to stop by and show her some love!
The Eco Posh is made out of recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton! The diaper has 4 sizes of adjustability and will fit from birth through potty training. This diaper also comes with the 6 r soaker like all Rumparooz, but the soakers that come with this diaper are made of bamboo and organic cotton. The diaper is 10 layers thick. This is a fitted diaper, and is not waterproof so it will require a cover. The EcoPosh fits sizes 6-35 pounds and is available in 5 great colors: Ginger, Love, Biscuit, Bamboo and Peace.
The soakers snap together to create 6 different options for just the right absorbency.
This diaper takes a bit of prep before using it for the first time. It’s recommended to wash in hot water 5 times with no detergent and do a cold rinse. It will reach it’s maximum absorbency after 10 washes.
The newborn setting starts at 6 lbs
Small setting starts at 10 lbs
Medium setting starts at 15 lbs
Large setting (fully unsnapped) starts around 20 pounds and will fit up to 35-40 pounds.
Our Experience with the Eco Posh Fitted
I can’t explain how excited I was to get this diaper. I couldn’t wait to start using it. We received the Peace color (the blue color shown above). I love the color and the softness of this diaper. We began our washing prep on this diaper right away.
It says that the diaper starts around 20 pounds on the large setting, but the way our daughter is built, we are still on the medium setting and she weighs just under 21 pounds. If we use this diaper during the day, we use it without a cover and just let her run around in the diaper. I LOVE the dual gussets on this diaper. A big plus for me, although I don’t think Maggie has tested them out on this diaper.
The first thing I noticed with this diaper is that it takes a very long time to dry. I would dry it with my other diapers, and then flip it inside out and hang it to dry the rest of the way. Once it was dry though, we reached for it right away. I have recently gotten somewhat addicted to fitted diapers, maybe because we are starting to potty train a little bit, but I love putting this diaper on her. We also use the diaper at night with a cover. The very first time she wore it, we left it on as long as possible to see how much it would hold before leaking. She wore this diaper for at least 4 hours without a cover before we had a problem with it leaking. I thought that was pretty good because Maggie drinks a ton during the day and pees very often so she gets changed very often. This diaper lasted much longer than I expected it to.
When we used it at night with a cover, we made it through the night without any problems using both inserts snapped together. The only thing I noticed with this was that when both inserts are snapped together, they are a little difficult to stuff inside the pocket. If you have daddy hands, you probably won’t be able to stuff the diaper. I love how absorbent both of these inserts and the diaper feel…so soft!
Overall, I was impressed with this diaper. I do find it a bit bulky with both inserts, it holds up well. We were able to get a snug fit every time and no red marks. The biggest downfall of this diaper is the long drying time, but that doesn’t effect how well the diaper works. At a price of $34.95, it is a bit more than any other diaper I own, but because of what it is made from, it is understandable. I would love to have a few more of these in our stash.

I love that it goes up to a 40lb fit. I’m not crazy about long drying times or all the prep work for ONE diaper though. Oy.
I noticed you said it takes a bit of prep. Must be worth the wait though. 🙂
i dislike that it takes a long time to dry since i like drying them in the sun
The long drying time might be a disadvantage but I like that they are made out of recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton.
Wow I like that the diaper is 10 layers thick!
Sounds interesting… Being so thick!! Might try it at night.
I love rumparooz already, but these look fantastic. I am a huge fan of diapers made out of bamboo.

I like that the pocket opening stretches open when you stuff it!
I like that it has dual inner gussets… i love bamboo diapers
This diaper looks incredible!
love that it is recycled and goes down to 6 lbs.
I’d love to try this diaper, but the biggest drawback is the expense. I can buy 4 Geffen prefolds that are bulletproof night time options, so the ONLY way, I’d try this would be if I won it or somebody gave it to me.
My favorite feature is that the diaper is a fitted with a pocket so you can get it really clean. A lot of my fitteds end up stinky because there are so many layers of fabric to clean.

I love the double leg gussets and the fact that it’s recycled and organic!

love bamboo but it seems a bit bulky.i don’t mind the drying time.
I love that it’s a recycled AND organic diaper. The color selection is so beautiful and natural.
What a unique color combo. I’ve never seen this combination before!
I love that The Eco Posh is made out of recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton! And that it has a colored interior, that’s unique.
I like that it comes with a Bamboo soaker — natural fiber inserts work well for us!
I love that it’s Organic and Bamboo, it sounds like a pretty awesome night time diaper!
It sounds like an amazing diaper all around: the double gussets, recycled material, cute!, soft, absorbent… the only downside would be the length of time to dry but really, it looks like it’d be worth it.
i love everything about this diaper!! love that it’s made from recycled & organic materials, & i love the double gussets! i so want one.. or lots.. lol!.. of these for my little organic angel!!!
I like that it’s made from recycled materials but am not a fan of long drying times
love that it can fit for so long, not a fan of using covers or long drying times
I don’t love how much it costs, but I love everything else.
This diaper looks SO SOFT. I bet my son would love it.
I love that it is super absorbent!

I love the look of those inner gussets!
The diaper even looks soft! It’s such a pretty color. I love the double gussets!
I love the dual gussets!
I love the dual inner gussets!!
Double gussets are always good at my house. I don’t mind the drying time, but if I like the diaper alot it may make me feel impatient wanting to use it again.
fave feature- no red marks!
I like that its bamboo and cotton and that it has dual gussets.
Love that it’s recycled, I’m drooling right now!
I love how soft this diaper looks! Perfect for naps <3
I just got one of these! I’m super excited for it now minus the multiple washings!
I’m not a big fan of fitteds since you can get a pocket (or 4 pockets!) for the same price BUT this one requires a cover :/ seems like a lot of extra work to me. which i feel ironic saying b/c i LOVE FLATS 😛 i guess it is the price difference i can get a flat for $1 but this thing costs $35 O.o for just one. The price is definitely my least favorite feature.
it does seem SUPER nice quality though and I definitely understand paying for quality 😉 it’s the reason why for example I would rather save my money and buy 1 Rumparooz than buy 6 Alvas…
I like that it starts with 6lbs so will fit newborns, and has a double gusset to catch any mess. I hope to win it free, since it is quite pricey!
I love that it is made from natural fibers and that it includes a natural fiber insert. I don’t like that it takes so many washes to prep.
It looks so soft and comfy, but I don’t like how expensive it is!
I love that this is made of recycled water bottles! And the double gussets are great. 🙂
I have not tried this diaper yet, but after reading I would like to try it! 🙂
i have not yet tried this diaper, but i think my favorite features are the double gussets, and how soft and squishy it is!
love the double gussets:-)
I love the double gussets and the amount of layers. Would be an awesome overnight diaper!
I love that it is made out of recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton!
How cool that it is made out of recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton… how not cool that it costs nearly $35.00. I love the color, by the way! 🙂
Of course I am always a fan of Dbl leg gussets but for 34.95 this diaper better clean the poop and pee of by itself.. WAY to expensive:(
Love how thick it is….sounds like a good night diaper. bobbie sinnott
i love the colors from the pic. it seems thin compared to some. i like how u said it didn’t leave red marks a lot of them do on my daughter and it drives me crazy. and i also like the duel inner gussets.
it looks sooo soft! But, I would say the drying time would not work around here, with TWO in diapers! I do love that it can be adjustable, and it works for 4 hours without a cover…it would probably work better for my son, who runs around all day, but not so much for my daughter who isn’t walking yet, and only scoots on her but…I would have to use a cover for her, and I’m not used to a fitted diaper let alone a cover…And the price, WOWZA! Not a diaper for the budget friendly family…
I love that it’s organic. I don’t like the price though. Wow!
I love how thick the eco posh diaper is for my LO. It looks super soft too! Great post!
