Tushmate Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

There is nothing cuter than tiny little cloth diapers. Well, that’s not true. The baby himself is definitely cuter, but I do love me some newborn cloth diapers. I got an email one day asking if I wanted to review a new newborn diaper – the Tushmate. OF COURSE I DID! It was different than any other newborn cloth diaper I had seen or used up to this point, so I was excited to check it out.

Tushmate Newborn Cloth Diaper

The Tushmate newborn cloth diaper is an all in one diaper.  Most of my newborn diapers are all in ones, but one thing that really stands out about this diaper is how quickly it dries. I also love that it is a really absorbent newborn diaper.  The unique design of the Tushmate allows for easy adding of extra inserts while still keeping it topped with stay dry fabric.   Adding the additional microfiber insert that comes with the diaper has made it possible for us to use this diaper at night.

Newborn Cloth DiapersIf you are wondering why there is talk of inserts on an all in one diaper, it’s because this is better than an all in one.  The stay dry liner has an easy snap opening that allows you to pull the liner back, add the insert{s}, then snap it back together.  At the snap end of the liner, there is a stay dry flap that helps to keep the inserts in place.  When the diaper is soiled, unsnap the inside and toss it in the wet bag until wash day.  When you wash, the microfiber insert will agitate out, as well as the partially sewn in hemp/organic cotton soaker.  This is also why it is such a fast drying diaper.

The outside of the diaper is made from a TPU laminated shell.  With adjustable rise snaps on the front of the diaper, your baby can wear it from approximately 5-14 pounds.  I love this.  Babies don’t usually wear newborn diapers for that long, so justifying the expense can be tricky.  With a diaper that will last up to 14 pounds, you can get a lot more use out of it.  At approximately 12 pounds, many of our newborn diapers are too small or he has outgrown the absorbency.  With the Tushmate, that is not the case.  This diaper still fits him wonderfully and holds up if he pees a ton.

The Tushmate newborn AIO is available in 4 gender neutral colors.  I would love to see them come out with even more colors because I really love this diaper.  I love how gentle the elastic is against his skin.  I know I get a great fit every time without feeling like I’m hurting his legs or back.  This is also such a trim fitting diaper that getting those cute newborn outfits over it isn’t a problem.  Here are a few pictures of Henry in his Tushmate cloth diaper as he grows.

  • I like newborn cloth diapers in theory but it seems like a lot of money to spend for such a short amount of time. I’d do it if someone gave me some newborn diapers or I could get them cheaply. I didn’t with #1 because we got a 3 month supply of disposables from the hospital for free. We will see with #2 on the way!

  • I think having a stash of newborn diapers will be really nice when our first little one arrives. Even though a lot of the one-size diapers say they fit at 10lbs, I imagine they are pretty bulky at that age. I like that Tushmate has a wide weight range and would fit longer than most newborns. It’s too bad they use microfiber however, we would like to use natural fabrics to diaper if possible. We will probably use prefolds and covers as our main newborn stash and have a few AIO’s on hand for grandparents to use ect.

  • We are trying to build a really solid newborn stash. We plan on using them through multiple kids, so it won’t be a waste! I love that Tushmate fits right away and keeps fitting for a long time!

  • I used newborn diaper with all three of my kiddos. I love how they fit and they are so cute. So tiny. We mostly did covers and prefolds. Perfect for those quick changes

  • This looks like a really great diaper! I like that it holds a lot, so would be good for a little longer! I also like that it fits until about 14 pounds. So cute!
