Poppy Fields Fitted Cloth Diaper Video and Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m so thrilled to be a part of the Dirty Diaper Laundry family. Harper just turned five months old (editor’s note- she is 6 months old now) and our experience with cloth diapers has been a learning process but definitely a positive one. I feel good every day knowing our diapers are better for the environment, for her health, and for our budget.

I received an organic cotton fitted diaper from Poppy Fields. The first thing I noticed was the print, these diapers are incredibly cute! When I opened one I found a rich plush organic velour that was soft to the touch and a thick cotton and bamboo doubler in a generous size. My immediate impression is that these diapers are very luxurious and something I would be proud to show off or give as a gift to new parents.

Ease of Use ✩✩✩

This diaper can be purchased with a doubler sewn in or snapped in. Mine was snapped in, with two discreet resin snaps in the back. The elastic in the diaper causes the doubler to peek out at the stomach before the diaper is snapped, which caused me to hesitate the first time I used it, but everything fits nicely once fastened. The option to snap the doubler in means you can remove it when washing so it will dry faster. It did take a long amount of time to dry on the clothesline even separated, I can’t imagine how long it would have taken if it were sewn in (The sewn in option is said to be better for heavy wetters, but I had no absorbency issues whatsoever so unless you have an older child imitating Niagra Falls you’re probably safe with the snap-in option) . The diaper’s interior is a thick plushy cotton velour. It’s great for absorbancy but that rich fiber stains when soiled so it’s imperative I sun these after they get dirty (not wet), otherwise I could just toss them in the dryer to get around the long-dry-time issue. I’ve found that using these as a night time solution means I’m less likely to have a soiled diaper, and since I won’t need it again until sundown, I don’t mind just leaving on the line most of the day. I think the other qualities of this diaper makes dry time less important to me, especially since organic is a feature I really appreciate. If I chose to use these fitteds throughout the day, I might sun them for a couple hours then toss them in the dryer to finish the job quickly.

Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩

At 30.50 for a newborn diaper and 34.50 for all other sizes, these diapers are a bit of an investment. That being said,
you’re paying for extremely high quality. The materials are luxe and the patterns are just beyond adorable. Every time I look at my Poppy Fields I can’t help but smile, the fabric choices are outstanding. While I would normally shy away from paying over thirty dollars for a diaper, these are a good value based on the quality.

Performance ✩✩✩✩✩

One issue many parents deal with is overnight leaks. You’re so excited your child slept for a certain amount of time, then you notice they are soaked, the bedding is soaked, or worse, soiled, and your excitement turns to frustration as you deal with the aftermath. I’ve even heard of parents turning to disposables for overnight to escape this issue, but with Poppyfields this may not be an issue. Nine layers of fabric including organic cotton and bamboo managed to stand up to a long night with my heavy wetter.

Fit ✩✩✩✩✩

These diapers are available in five different sizes that include a generous number of snaps to guarantee a good fit. The options include newborn, small, medium, medium long, and large. My fourteen pounder was able to fit in both the small and medium sizes thanks to those handy snaps, so for a sized diaper you can still look forward to using these for quite a while.

Overall:
I would happily own one of every print available if my budget would allow it. These diapers are beautiful and a pleasure to use. I’d rather deal with a longer dry time if it means organic materials that don’t leak, and I was very impressed with the quality of these diapers. Again, my first thought is that this is an excellent gift (with a wool cover) as any new mother would be thrilled to see any of these patterns at her baby shower. If these are even just a small percentage of your stash, you’ll find them a luxury you look forward to using and may wish you had more.

Addendum:
Poppy Fields has updated their doubler options since I wrote this review; they were kind enough to send me their new insert. It features two separate pieces that snap together for wearing and come apart for cleaning. These new doublers dry much faster than the sewn together style I originally tried. They are also easier to sun, as Harper has stained both styles, it was much more difficult to get every bit of the sewn together style exposed to the sunshine but these were a snap (hah, a pun!) and I was very pleased by the new option. Poppy Fields suggests the sewn in style if you have a heavy wetter, but so far I haven’t had a single leak with these whether using a wool cover or PUL.

We are in our second week of the “For the Love of WAHM! Fluff” event and I’m excited to bring you our third brand- Poppy Fields!  Poppy Fields had me at “designer prints” instead of hello.  One of the best parts of shopping for WAHM diapers is being able to pick from a much wider array of prints that range from posh and pretty to punk rock.  Poppy Fields chooses designer Scandinavian fabrics in vibrant colors and fun motifs that all make me feel the urge to shop.  I guess that is why you could say that I’m Head over Heels for Poppy Fields!
