WAHMies Deluxe One Size Pocket Diaper: Review & Giveaway!

Thanks to Cloth Diaper Market in Colorado Springs, I have the awesome opportunity to share my review of a great pocket diaper with you.  Even better is the Cloth Diaper Market's offer to sponsor a fantastic giveaway!  One (or more?) lucky reader will win their very own WAHMies one-size pocket diaper, courtesy of Cloth Diaper Market-  keep reading to find out how to win!

Owen puts the WAHMies pocket to his own test!
Tracie at CDM hooked me up with a WAHMies one-size pocket diaper to test, and it did not disappoint!


Tweak to Unique
  • The insert for this diaper is a large square of bamboo and cotton blend cloth.  The square is very thin before it is folded, resulting in a trim insert that you can customize to fit your baby's rise and absorbency needs.    
  • Against your baby's skin sits a thin yet super-soft bamboo-cotton viscose layer, which keeps baby feeling dry but also allows their skin to breathe.

Tri-folded insert, shell, and my canvas bag creeping into the frame.
  • The cut of the wings is nicely curved with only one row of snaps.  For my son, this results in a nice close fit around the waist without restricting hip and leg movement.  
  • WAHMies pockets have snaps for four different rise options, increasing the likelihood that the diaper will fit well on a newborn or a toddler.    
  • "Hydro-Assure(tm) Technology"- The waterproof PUL layer is sewn inside the shell, between the leg gussets and the viscose center.  The fabric side of the PUL touches baby's skin, not the shiny waterproof part- a great detail because some babies get a red rash from exposed PUL (mine included).  Additionally, the wrap-around waterproof fabric helps to prevent leaks around the thighs.

Function > Form
  • This one-size diaper is designed to fit babies between 7 and 30 pounds, resulting in a diaper that can work from birth through potty learning.  The overall trim fit of the diaper convinces me that it should work well with newborns without being too bulky to be practical.


  • The flat custom-fold insert dries quickly.  For me, the tri-fold bamboo-cotton WAHMies insert can dry on the line in less than an hour in the sun!  It is always dry well before my microfiber or hemp inserts.  The pocket is also fast-drying, resulting in a diaper that I can grab before anything else is ready to use!
  • The Hydro-Assure(tm) technology includes a doubled layer of waterproof fabric all the way through the snapping wings.  When you fit it properly on your baby, you can really rely on this diaper to prevent leaks!
  • Once stuffed, this pocket is easy to use- wrap around baby, fasten one row of snaps, and throw in a wet bag when soiled.  It is a perfect choice for alternate caregivers or daycare!

What Will It Cost Me?

How cute is this?!

Other Considerations

  • WAHMies come in twelve adorable colors and prints!  Who doesn't love having a wide variety of fabric options?!  Choose from cow print, owls, giraffes, robots, Ooga Boogas, and pink- or blue-and-chocolate dots.  Solid colors include baby pink, celery, butter, chocolate, and baby blue.
  • The first time I put this diaper on my son, I admit that I had a bit of difficulty stuffing the pockets.  I believe my struggle was due, in large part, to my self-proclaimed "man hands."  I couldn't get the insert to stay where I wanted it to be in the pocket.  After a bit of adjusting I got the diaper to fit perfectly, and the next time I stuffed it I tried a new approach- and it worked.  This is what I did to adjust the length of the insert without it bunching in the shell:
    • First:  Lay the square flat in front of you.  Fold a few inches of the fabric from the top down toward you, so that the length is as desired.
    • Second: Tri-fold the insert as usual, keeping the previously folded section tucked inside the new fold.  Now you have an insert with extra absorbency on one end, that won't be difficult to stuff in the pocket.
    • Third:  Hold one end and stuff the pocket, putting the extra absorbent section in the front or back as needed.  Et voila!  You have easily stuffed the WAHMies pocket!


  • WAHMies products are made in the USA, so with every purchase you are supporting American families and the economy!  Consider this: often American-made products are more expensive than comparable options made overseas.  This product is the same price as many other popular pocket diapers on the market, but the competitor's diapers are not made in the USA. 
  • No microfiber means no microfiber stinkies!  Thus far for me, it is easy to keep the WAHMies insert smelling fresh.  I can't say the same for all the microfiber inserts I own!


My Final Word(s)

I'm so glad that I tested the WAHMies Deluxe One Size pocket diaper, because it has become one of my top go-to diapers for daytime and overnight use.  I love the flexibility of adjustable absorbency that comes with pocket diapers, and this pocket is a trim option.  I trust this diaper to prevent leaks and it has never disappointed me!  The wide variety of colors and prints make WAHMies diapers fun to own.  WAHMies are an excellent option for any mom looking for a great pocket to build her stash!
