oh katy Oh Katy Giveaway

Oh Katy (formerly known as Katydid) is an adjustable one sized pocket cloth diaper that features a snap down rise. It was designed to fit babies from 8 pounds to 35 pounds. These fashionable cloth diapers are known for their trim fit, ease of use, featuring gentle leg gussets for chubby or sensitive thighs, and superior leak proof protection. The hip snaps ensure the sturdiest fit for newborns to toddlers. There’s not even a need for a waterproof bag, because you can easily roll them up into a neat bundle by using the crossover tabs.

Oh Katy generously sent me the One-Size Pocket Diaper in Twilight, a tantalizing teal shade. There are 14 different colors in all. Every diaper comes with two inserts: a full-size, adjustable insert and a newborn insert/doubler. They currently offer these diapers with a snap closure only, but I prefer this since I believe that they would be easier to launder than velcro cloth diapers.

I don’t have previous experience with cloth diapers, because I found the upfront cost of them to be a bit intimidating in the past. However, they can save you a bundle in the long run opposed to disposables, though. It cost about $500 – $800 for a year’s supply of disposable diapers for the first year. Since I know how expensive regular diapers can be, I wish I had given cloth diapers a chance with my first child. Believe me, I’ll most definitely be using them when my baby girl is born this summer.

I’ll be able to provide more insight after my baby is born in a few more months. In the mean time, Oh Katy has offered one reader the chance to receive one Oh Katy diaper in the color of their choice!

Disclosure: I received a cloth diaper from Oh Katy. No monetary exchange occurred in exchange for the writing of the review. The views expressed in this review are strictly that of the reviewer. All reviews provided here are the work of the reviewer and remain completely unbiased.

The giveaway will conclude on March 31st.

  1. I haven't started CDing yet! Still TTC but I really like the advice to not buy a huge stash of anyone brand or style of diaper. What works for your sister and her baby or whoever may not work for yours!

  2. Get a diaper sprayer, don't let your dirty diapers set to long, I went a week without washings and they really smelled and they smelled after I washed them to.

  3. Keep trying different things! Diapers fit all babies differently.

  4. If you decide to go with prefolds, make sure to purchase a few snappis to go with them. And if you plan to cloth diaper a newborn, one-sized diapers are going to be too big, even if they say they fit 7 and 8 lb babies. Buy some newborn or xs diapers to use while your baby is still filling out. bekki1820cb at gmail dot com

  5. Try several styles before you decide that you love or hate cloth diapers. And you don't have to buy your stash all at once! Easing into cloth diapers will help you build the stash you want while still saving some money along the way…and keeping you sane as you figure out what works for you! Sometimes disposables can save your sanity, too. :)

  6. Try different styles, some are larger/smaller/firmer/looser than the others and use different buttons/velcros/etc. I found velcro didn't work for me, but instead of throwing them away, I looked online at how to add my own buttons!

  8. OS Pocket diapers are the best!

  9. I suggest buying some used first so you can try them out before committing to one or two brands/styles.

  10. The more you buy, the longer they will last. We had a smaller stash to start off with and they were washed SO many times that they didn't last as long as they could have. You don't need a HUGE amount, but do have enough that you can take good care of them. Try not to wash the same diapers every single day, and line dry them when possible.

  11. If poop is soft enough that it's hard to get of the diaper, you probably don't really need to dump it off the diaper; it will come out in the wash.

    Also, don't use the nasty prefolds you can find at the local store that have an “absorbent” (not!) polyester foam core.

  12. I love the brand Oh Katie! I am new to cloth diapering and have had no problems with them so far :)

  13. Jessica H says:

    I am a new CD user… my baby is due in June. The best advice I've received is to make sure to try different diapers… not all will be compatible with my baby's bum. :P

  14. My tip would be to make sure you have something specifically designed for newborns. Most babies need those tiny starter diapers.

  15. Don't buy all of the same diaper in the beginning. Use a trial program or purchase a bunch of different styles and brands. Diapers have a great buy back if you don't like a particular style or brand

  16. Best advice is to stock a small supply in your car for those times you may run out.

  17. I have a little one due in a few months too, so I'd love to try this.

  18. I know how much cloth diapering saves, and would love to be able to gift these to the expectant parents! Never too many…

  19. My tip is to just not over complicate things, it's really not as hard as some people make it out to be ESPECIALLY a laundry routine.

  20. AI2's they are a Godsend! Just like a disposable, but you wash them! And you can get extra inserts to put in at night time. Prefolds are great, AI2's are amazing

  21. I try to wash daily or every other day. I have 3 in diapers.

  22. If one type of diaper doesn't work for you try another kind. I started with AIOs and almost quit, I sold them and bought pockets and LOVE it. AIOs just weren't for me.

  23. I think it would have been nice to know more about stripping diapers before getting started.

  24. If the diaper you thought you would love doesn't work for you, it doesn't mean all cloth diapers won't work. Try another option because each baby is different.

  25. I haven't started cloth diapering yet. Waiting for my first fluff mail soon… and my first “baby mail” delivered this May :)

  26. My advice to first time cloth users is to have more than a 1 day supply of diapers, wipes, etc. I started with only the bare minimum and quickly found that some days I needed more than the recommended 18 diapers per day for a newborn! Doing laundry mid-day and hoping they would dry in time took away from time with my baby!

  27. Try out different brand before investing in a full stash.

  28. I haven't started yet, but I plan to invest in different brands and have enough for a few days.

  29. try a variety of brands/styles to see what works for you!

  30. Don't buy a ton of diapers that are the same. Sample around and have fun with it.

  31. Buy 5 or so different kinds of diapers (Pocket, AIO, AI2, Prefold with Cover, fitted) etc. And then figure out what you like best. Once you know the type you like the best then buy a few different brands of that kind to try out. Then once you know what diaper brand and type you like buy a bunch of them! It takes some time to figure out what you like so you shouldn't jump in all at once!

  32. Sample different diapers to find the one that works for you!

  33. i dont have any tips, as i am new myself! :)

  34. Try different things, but when you find one you LOVE don't hesitate to get it. :)

  35. Buy a yard of anti-pill fleece and cut rectangular strips to use as liners — this can be helpful when traveling and you don't have diaper-sprayer access, it's helpful if you use flats/prefolds and your little one is getting irritation from the wetness directly against their skin, and also works great for when you *HAVE* to use non-CDsafe creams. Just remember that if you are using non-CDsafe creams, that you store the dirty liners/wipes used during that time separately and wash them separately (with towels)! (Obviously they can be washed with the other diapers and wipes/liners later, but until you've washed out those creams, you want them separate!)

  36. Try a few different types. What is your favorite one month may change as baby gets older. Also, have SOME prefolds (they work great for stuffing pockets, trifolding in covers, using as a burpcloth or changing pad at the last minute, or just using as intended)

  37. Try a few different types. What is your favorite one month may change as baby gets older. Also, have SOME prefolds (they work great for stuffing pockets, trifolding in covers, using as a burpcloth or changing pad at the last minute, or just using as intended)

  38. Don't think that you can go to walmart and buy a pack of gerber prefolds and plastic pants and succeed. It's not going to work.

    Try all sorts of diapers before making a huge purchase. Trial orders are your friend! And make sure you exercise trial and error in your laundry routine!
