Wahmies OS Diaper Review and Giveaway

Fits: 7-30 pounds

Price Per Diaper: ★★★☆☆ This Wahmies OS diaper retails for $17.95 generally, but can be found at many retailers on sale right now for $14.35-$14.95 (4 stars!). This is right on par for many OS diapers and this diaper features an innovative soaker design and a plush comfy pocket next to baby.

Leaks: ★★★☆☆ This diaper comes with a fold to fit viscose of bamboo and cotton insert which you trifold to fit into the pocket (much like a prefold or flat). Also, the inner side of the pocket (the side that touches baby) is lined with a super soft and luxurious viscose of bamboo and cotton velour fabric that wicks moisture away from baby, keeps baby dry, and is super comfy. What does this all add up to? A very absorbent diaper! I found that this diaper was extremely absorbent for day time and nap time use. However, it was not absorbent enough for night time use and we did have some leaks. With one simple additional insert, it was perfect for night time use! But the diaper as it comes from the store was not absorbent enough, it needs another insert for night time use. The outer layer is made of waterproof PUL and Wahmies smartly brought the PUL around to the inside edges of the pocket to contain mess and prevent leaks/ wicking.

Fit: ★★★★★ This diaper has a snap waist with two snaps side by side and a single row of snaps on the front of the diaper to adjust the waist. There is also a cross over snap on the right tab to make the waist smaller for newborns and skinny babies. In addition to the waist snaps, there is also a four snap rise to adjust the rise of the diaper smaller or bigger depending on height/age. This is a nice fitting diaper with lots of snap options, also, due to the stretchy back waist, you can easily find the perfect snap setting. Additionally, due to the smart trifold insert, this diaper is extremely trim, even if double folding for the newborn size.

Ease of Use: ★★★★☆ This diaper is extremely easy to stuff, wash, and care for. However, the snaps can be a bit of a challenge at times. Also I found that I had more problems with drop tabs on this diaper than I do with other similar diapers.

Washing: ★★★★★ This diaper washes beautifully! When I pulled this diaper from the package, I was amazed at the softness of the velour. Many many washes later, and it is still luxuriously soft! My daughter likes to wear this diaper because it is nice and soft against her bum and she calls it “fluffy.” The velour has retained no stains, the fabric has no wear, and the diaper looks brand new!

Overall Performance: ★★★★★ The scores do not reflect just how much I enjoyed this diaper and my daughter would give it a 5 star rating. However, we did have some leaking at nights without another insert. Overall, I really loved this diaper and I would highly recommend it. Best part…made in the USA!

Total Stars: 25/30
