Oh Katy One-Size Pocket Diaper Review & Giveaway

by Mama Chocolate on January 4, 2012

green-apple_0 *review by Janelle P.

I have seen a few reviews over the past year on the Oh Katy diaper, but have not been lucky enough to win one so I was excited to get to review one for Mama Chocolate!

The Oh Katy is a one-size pocket diaper with snap closure. I chose black since we don’t have that color diaper yet and not very many diaper brands offer it.

 

There are several features that make the Oh Katy diaper unique from many on the market.

Most obvious is the pocket opening is in the front instead of the back.

I think this feature may be better for girls than boys as I noticed my son tends to soak the very front of the diaper the most, making it ickier to pull an insert out the front, but I have read many reviews that love the front opening to avoid touching poo.

_DSC0050The snaps of the Oh Katy cross over making it so you can roll up the diaper after use (kind of like a disposable) and may not even need a wetbag! There are a few other diaper brands that offer this feature, but not many.

This diaper also has newborn hip snaps so it fits those teeny tiny babies better. I was confused what the hip snaps were for at first but figured it out when I looked at the instructions.

It comes with 2 inserts. The larger one has snaps so you can make it different sizes easily.

Folding an insert and keeping it folded without it bunching up when stuffing a pocket diaper can be tricky, but the snaps make it easy.

I typically do this every night for extra front absorbency since my son tends to wet out the front and the back stays pretty dry (he is a tummy sleeper) .

 

 

I found this diaper to work very well for my son and had no issues while using it.

It is pretty trim which is nice. It’s not quite as slim between the legs as some big name pocket diapers, but I like that as I’ve had issues with poo explosions out the sides of some of them.

Oh Katy Compared

I had no leakage at all using this diaper, and it experienced all the great tests Angelo could throw at it. It even worked well at night using the 2 included insets plus one hemp insert I already had. I haven’t found very many pocket diapers that can handle nighttime so I’m glad to add another one to my rotation. This diaper left no marks on my son’s legs, and I like the feel of the thick fleece lining.

Oh Katy! is generously giving one lucky Mama Chocolate reader their own one-size pocket diaper in the winner’s choice of color!
