A few months ago, I had the opportunity to talk with Kathryn from Smush Tush diapers about a giveaway for another event. When she sent me the diaper to review, she surprised me with a newborn cover to review for my little man as well. I cannot express how excited…it was our first newborn diaper we had at the time and it is so cute and little, just like the little man himself! Well, guess what, she agreed to give one of you lucky readers your own Smush Tush newborn diaper cover!!!
Kathryn is the mother of two little smushes under the age of 3 and is a part time pediatric RN. Kathryn believes in cloth diapers – nothing makes more sense than saving money, keeping our landfills free from everlasting disposable diaper garbage, and of course, there is nothing cute than a fluffy tush!
Kathryn also supports a great cause and $1 from every Smush Tush sale goes into a morale fund for pediatric patients at a local Portland Children’s Hospital.
Smush Tush Diapers: Cute, Contemporary, Convenient, Cush. Each one is unique.
May all your tushes be cushed by Smush!
The diaper cover I received is an adorable giraffe print with color coordinated snaps.
There are two sets of snaps on each wing (4 snaps on each wing), 6 snaps across the front top, and 8 snaps across the bottom of the front to get a much tighter fit around baby’s little thighs. I love that extra snap on the bottom row. We were able to get a perfect, snug fit around his little bird legs from day 1! The cover also has double cross over snaps on the wings so you can get a great fit on that tiny waist and snap both sets of snaps to keep it in place. There is also stretchy, soft elastic on the back and around both leg openings. This allows the diaper to stretch to fit your baby without leaving red marks.

The cover is made of 2 layers of waterproof PUL (polyurethane laminate) fabric that is breathable to minimize diaper rash, hypoallergenic, stretch, abrasion – resistant, fade – resistant, lead free, Bisphenol – A (BPA) free and phalatate free. And, it is made in the USA!
We have used our Smush Tush diaper cover EVERY SINGLE DAY since Charlie was born. He was born at 8 lbs, 7 ounces, and is now 13 lbs, 2 ounces and the cover has fit perfectly the entire time. Kathryn did mention that she usually stocks velcro newborn covers, but does do snaps if that is what is preferred. The cover is made from quality fabric – after 2 1/2 months of using it every night, there are no flaws in the diaper at all. It washes out really well and dries quickly.
Charlie man is a very heavy wetter – I have had a hard time finding a nighttime solution so that him and I don’t end up sleeping in pee. Pairing this diaper cover over some fitted diapers has worked perfectly! This was the only solution that worked, and as it turned out, our Smush Tush diaper cover is the only cover we have that fit him while he was this small.

I cannot say enough good things about this cover. Kathryn puts her skills to work to create this fantastic diaper cover. When it’s time for baby #3, I will definitely be needing some more of these covers! I LOVE this cover and would recommend these to anybody!
There are tons of other great cloth diapers and accessories in her etsy shop. Be sure to check it out and let me know what your favorite product is – I would love to know! She even makes custom diapers!

I would love to try the organic hemp soaker inserts!
All the extra snap features are amazing, there’s so much I’m learning about cloth diapers and so many things I never considered! PS, look at how chubby those little thighs got! 🙂
Haha. I know! When I was looking at them I was surprised even though I see how much he has grown every day.
Cloth diapers are amazing – after over a year, I’m still learning a ton!
