Oh Katy Cloth Diaper Review - Sweet Little Blessings {Mother's Day Cloth Diaper Spotlight}


I found this cloth diaper site - Sweet Little Blessings that is really neat.  They sell all types of diapers and diapering accessories.  Coleen from Sweet Little Blessings sent me a Froggy Oh Katy One Size Pocket Diaper to review.

About Sweet Little Blessings: 
My name is Coleen and I am a WAHM to twelve children...so I've had LOTS of diapering experience!  I have always wanted to have my own business and decided in July of 2008 to finally start Sweet Little Blessings. We are starting with cloth diapers and accessories, but hope to expand our product line as our business grows. 

Every Oh Katy™ One-Size Pocket Diaper comes with a full-size adjustable insert and a newborn insert/doubler. Fits most babies from 8-35lbs.
 Unique Features Include:
  • Patented front-opening pocket design
  • Infant side snaps to prevent wing-droop
  • Wrap and snap feature for clean storage
  • Ultra-soft microfiber fleece to keep baby feeling dry
  • Multiple inserts included

This was the first one sized diaper that I had ever used.  I was really curious on how one diaper would be able to fit such a large range of size.  It was perfect timing for me too as we just had our second baby and have a 20 month old.  I was a little concerned that the diaper would be too bulky for my newborn and not work well but it actually worked really great!  I used it on my newborn on the smallest settings and around the Medium (maybe a bit bigger) settings for my 20 month old.  The diaper worked great as a daytime and nighttime (with the extra insert) diaper.

The Oh Katy inserts have a logo/tag on them - now I can quickly tell which inserts belong to them. You can see the tags on the inserts in the picture below. The Oh Katy diapers include both a newborn size insert and regular size insert.  These can be used together for more absorption for heavy wetters or for overnight.  The regular sized insert can be folded over and snapped (see second picture) to use for a newborn.  The inserts had pretty good absorption, though I haven't ever used microfiber inserts before, I only have used cotton/bamboo blends and combinations.
This is the first pocket diaper I've used that the opening to put the insert in is in the front rather than the back.  It's easy to use there and since there isn't any elastic which can make it a bit more inconvenient to push the inserts in. 


Over all I thought these diapers were really great!  I love that they fit both a newborn and a toddler.  I'm not fond of the microfiber inserts as I prefer using organic or natural fabrics for my baby's diapers, but overall they are a really great diaper for a great price.

And, from now until April 30th you can buy 5 and get 1 Oh Katy diaper FREE at Sweet Little Blessings.

I like that it fits such a variety of sizes and works well at night.

I would love to try one of these diapers... I love the size range and the colors and that you can roll it up if you forget a wet bag... which i do sometimes :(

mean green mom said...

These look amazing! Love the snaps and that they carry small sizes. I have a wee one on the way soon and find the one-size diapers too big.
Thanks

Erica Lee said...

I have been wanting to try one of these diapers. I like the double row of snaps

Megan Lloyd said...

I've heard such great things about these CDs I'd love to try them!

Jessica said...

Thanks for the review! I've been wanting to try an Oh Katy diaper now that my baby is finally fitting her one size diapers:)

I have a couple of these and they offer a nice, trim fit on my 2 1/2 year old daughter -- not sure how they'll work for baby #2 due in July :/ But, the front pocket is very convenient when cleaning poopy diapers!

Fiddlin' Dandi said...

Great review! I really like all the cute colors!

Charis's Mum said...

Wow! I did not realize the owner has 12 children. I've bought from her before and was pleased with her service. The shipping was fast.

Denee M. said...

I love the different colors.

Ashley said...

To echo Dandi, the colors are really cute and I like the variety - you don't see some of them on other diapers!

Knocked Up and Nursing said...

i like how the insert has snaps to help with sizing. Thanks for the review

Linda said...

I like how they offer newborn sizes. I'm currently looking for a few to have when my baby comes in July

Kinda Crunchy Mama said...

love snaps! and that they come so small! Would love to try one of these on my little one due in a couple weeks!

eastman520 said...

I love the snaps!

Melinda C said...

I like that the larger insert snaps down so you can double stuff for nighttime, even on the smallest setting.

Christina said...

I love how the inserts have snaps...Great review.

Daily Mothering said...

I love Oh Katy's. My son has just about outgrown them but I plan to have at least a few in my stash for Baby #2. They fit so trim!

Sparky said...

I'd imagine the front stuff would be easier for unstuffing the inserts with a messy diaper. cute diaper, too!

Ishibishi said...

I have heard good things about these diapers and would love to try them!

HCeallaigh said...

would love to try them! love the different insert sizes

dlmeyers25@gmail.com said...

Sounds like this is a good diaper to get for my son due in June. I know that some OS diapers don't actually fit newborns well. Glad to hear you had good luck with it!

Rebecca Smith said...

Love it when a company clearly labels their inserts! Makes for easy laundry!

Sarabel10680 said...

The opening for the insert in the front is a much smarter place to put it! Our little girl is exclusively breast fed and her poo usually ends up in the opening for the inserts in the diapers we are currently using where the opening is in the back.

simplymerry said...

i personally can attest to the wonderful size range. my 8lb at birth, and my 35lb toddler. love this diaper. :)

thanks for the review!

Stacey T said...

Did you have any problems with wicking at the front from the diaper rolling at baby's belly?

Rachel said...

I learned that the Sweet Blessings owner has 12 kids. Now that's impressive! I have only one and sometimes I feel like pulling my hair out ;)

Julie said...

I love this diaper! Especially the fit for my son who is fairly skinny! it fits so well:-)

Maria Ivey said...

I have 2 Oh Katy diapers in our stash. I love the fit on our skinny girl. I would love to have one in each color. The colors are gorgeous.

Quantmlife said...

Cindy B (on rc/fb) ~ these diapers look like a really nice addition to any stash. Thanks for the review.

Sara said...

We haven't tried Oh Katys, but crossover tabs and front-stuff are both great features!

Looks like a great diaper! I hope to try one soon.

Chany said...

These diapers are fantastic! I would love to have a Cherry one!

Oh Katy's are definitely on my "must try" list...they look so so so nice!

Brandy Anderson said...

I have 2 Oh Katy diapers and they are my sons favorite! He loves the colors and he cries if I put him in our other diapers (he only wears diapers at night)

Charlotte said...

I like that you pull the insert out from the front! That is nice :-)
