Are you interested in adding an embroidered Little Monsters cloth diaper to your collection? Today’s review covers all the basics and may help you decide if this brand is right for your baby. Several months ago, Little Monsters sent two complimentary diapers for us to try out: Bunny Moon for Ingrid and Robot for Erik. Embroidery is on the back and coordinating colored snaps are on the front:
Basic features include:
- Waterproof PUL outer and white microfleece pocket lining (there is additional PUL backing to cover the embroidery stitches)
- Four size settings on the rise (extra small, small, medium and large) – fits 9 to 35 pounds
- Cross-over snaps on the waist for tiny babies
- Hip snaps on the waist to prevent sagging
- One 3-layer microfiber insert
- Embroidered diapers are $22.99 and solid colors are $20.99
Fit and Appearance: I love the fit of this pocket diaper. The square tabs give it a trim and tailored look; the double snaps keep the wings from curling back. Overall, it’s a super trim pocket diaper with a soft, smooth feel. Erik is thrilled with the robot design and wants to wear it constantly. Of the two, Robot is my definite favorite so that means Ingrid is wearing it sometimes, too. Usually I buy colors and prints that call to me; in this case, both mama and baby are having fun with the design. 🙂
The size range is very generous. On the second rise setting it fits 8-month-old Ingrid and the largest setting (completely open) is perfect for 2-year-old Erik.
Performance: The 3 layer microfiber insert which came with the diaper is slightly thinner than other microfiber inserts in my collection. As is, this pocket diaper is not very absorbent. It will hold both Erik and Ingrid for about an hour. So we can’t use it as a nap diaper or overnight because it has to be changed so frequently. If you love the look of these bright and colorful embroidered pocket diapers and want one for your child, just be aware that you’ll probably want to add a booster at some point.
Luckily, it’s easy to stuff. Inserts go in and out of the pocket easily. There is plenty of room for my hands, and more than enough room for 2 inserts at once or even bulkier things like prefolds. The waterproof PUL fabric is very sturdy and we haven’t had any leaks.
Although it wasn’t very absorbent as sold, I’ve adapted the diaper and have used it a lot for Erik. Stuffed with microfiber and hemp (or microfiber and bamboo) it’s a perfect overnight diaper.
If the price wasn’t on the higher end of the spectrum ($22.99 each) I would certainly grab a couple more of these fun diapers! Little Monsters does have a rewards program that allows you to earn points towards free diapers.
Quality – Both diapers are very well made. I found one tiny little flaw on the pink embroidery, but it was hardly noticeable. On both, the embroidery is clear and bright and the waterproof outer shell with contrasting colored snaps is very eye-catching. I like that they are cute on the back and on the front.
