Update: There is a newer version of this diaper on the market.
Tiny Tush was a brand of diapers I had heard of, but I didn’t really know much about. I was given the opportunity to review both the velcro and the snap version of the Tiny Tush Elite. Then I wondered why I hadn’t heard more about them. They worked great, and were a good price too. Some brands just get overlooked. You hear about the major players, but Tiny Tush is a brand worth researching and trying out when you consider buying a one size pocket diaper.
Charlene from Tiny Tush is a generous soul. When I emailed her about Fluffy Christmas, she sent one large box containing 12 One Size Tiny Tush Elites! Then, just a few days after receiving that box, she asked if she could send even more diapers! Soon, another large box came containing prefolds, covers, and wipes. Tons of them! She sent enough diapers to cover 3 families alone. I am so grateful to her for her generosity to Fluffy Christmas. She looks for opportunities to give back, and she was kind enough to work with me on picking the families to receive the diapers. It was a hard job because there were so many deserving families, and reading the stories was hard. It makes you appreciate your own good fortune. Now, for the review!
***note, I noticed I made a mistake in the video. The diaper comes with one large insert, not two***
Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰ The velcro version of the Tiny Tush Elite is completely simple. To put it on you just need to affix the tabs. You will need to stuff both the snap and velcro version of this diaper. And once the baby has used it, you need to unstuff the diaper. Since the pocket opening tucks inside (called a reverse envelope opening), you might have to get your hands a little dirtier than some other pocket diaper openings. This was my only “complaint” about the diaper. Wet diapers are no problem, but if poop has traveled up near the opening it might get ugly. The design prevents the insert for ever working itself out though and having poop get into the flap opening. The snaps aren’t bad, since there are only four of them. Easy to attach and undo.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰✰ The price point is 17.95, right on the money for a good pocket diaper. You might find some for less, but they are probably made cheaper. You get one long insert, and it can be folded over for different rise settings. Quality made.
Performance ✰✰✰✰✰ There were no problems in this department. The diapers worked great overnights, day time, naps. I only used the large insert, I didn’t double stuff or add any of my other inserts. Recently my son wore the snao veriosn of the Tiny Tush Elite overnight. At 5:00 am there is a bomb threat at our home, my son and husband evacuated (I was staying at a friend’s watching her baby since she was in the hospital having another one!) and after they got home he went right back to sleep. He was in the diaper all night until after 9. Much longer than usual. It was very heavy, but it never leaked!
Fit ✰✰✰✰ I can’t say how the Tiny Tush fits on a newborn, or a larger baby. My son fits the two middle snap rise settings, either one work for him. On my “newborn” baby monkey, there was some leg gaping. This could be a drawback of having such a high rise, you need larger legs for the bigger babies. Once the thighs chunk up a little it should fit a smaller baby fine.
Overall- Like I said in the video, I love that this diaper has microfleece instead of suedecloth, and you can get snaps or velcro. There are nice color choices, the diaper is made well, and it looks comfortable on my son. Even though it is slightly bulkier than a Bum Genius 3.0, it isn’t the bulkiest pocket diaper I have seen, and is trimmer than a prefold/ cover combo or certain fitted/ cover combinations. I think this is a pocket diaper worth looking at!
