Update: OhKaty. the rename of the old Katydid diapers, is also no longer being made.
Today is Harper’s first birthday! On October 14th, 2012, I was very anxious and excited to meet my little girl. I labored all day and met her that evening. The time has gone by so fast! I can’t believe it’s been a year already.
We are excited to be sharing an Oh Katy diaper with you today. Formerly called Katydid, these diapers have been updated with new features after hearing feedback from parents. I love it so much when a company takes the time to listen to their customers and make changes, it shows how much they really do care!
This pocket diaper features a front opening for the inserts to be added. I like this feature a lot when wash time comes, it allows me to remove the insert without being anywhere near anything that may have happened in the back of the diaper. Oh Katy also allows you to “wrap and snap” when you remove the soiled diaper, which means you roll the diaper into itself and snap it shut, and it stays closed with the mess contained. It is so secure I would even feel comfortable foregoing the wet bag, so putting an Oh Katy on her before heading to the grocery store means I can just toss an extra diaper and a cloth wipe in my purse and not deal with the added bulk of extra accessories.Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩
Priced at 17.95, Oh Katy diapers are a good value. I love the color choices and the two microfiber inserts you receive with each diaper, when Harper was tiny being able to use newborn inserts made a huge difference in the bulkiness of her diapers. And now, I love stacking two inserts for long naps or travel in the car, the extra absorbency is a great security measure.Performance ✩✩✩✩
I absolutely love how well Oh Katy holds up to leaks. The leg elastic is very snug and hugs Harper’s tiny legs perfectly, but it is also gentle and has never left red marks. That well made elastic is perfect for holding in messes resulting from a mostly breast milk diet (which tends to be a bit more wet and sometimes tries to escape through the leg holes). I wouldn’t use this diaper overnight, even with both inserts, but it is perfect for day use.Fit ✩✩✩✩✩
Oh Katy is made to adjust from newborn to potty training. Many diapers say this but their smallest setting can still be overwhelming on a tiny infant. I think these diapers would fare very well on a newborn, they are perfect on Harper’s small frame, and very trim as well. If I’m dressing her in leggings (my wonderful mother in law loves buying her sweet little tunic and legging sets) I always reach for a trim diaper, and this one is my favorite for a slim silhouette.Overall:
Oh Katy is a very trim diaper and very soft inside and out. It comes in gorgeous bright colors and is made to be extremely convenient for an on the go parent. It definitely makes cloth diapering easy, which is great for anyone uneasy about making the transition. I think any parent who uses pockets should have at least one Oh Katy in their stash, as the trimness and modern style are an excellent option to have available.Where to Buy
