Kawaii Heavy Wetter Review

A few months ago I was contacted by two AMAZING cloth diapering mommas who do blog reviews and giveaways. I was so excited to get to know Rebecca and Cassie. Recently they have both been reviewing some of our boutique products and posting their reviews on their blogs, followed by a giveaway. I have been so happy with their wonderful reviews that I figured I would start to post their reviews on my blog for all of you to see!!!

This review was for the Kawaii Heavy Wetter Diaper. This diaper is one of my favorite diapers out of all of the diapers in my stash. It works great for my little boy who truly is a "heavy wetter". I was first introduced to this diaper from a girl friend who also has a heavy wetter little boy! She was so excited to tell me about this diaper and to have me try it. I knew after the first night of using the diaper, it was a wonderful product not only for my son but a must have for our boutique. This is one of our most popular diaper with in our boutique and I have NEVER gotten any negative feedback on it. You must try this diaper!!!

Below I have listed Cassie and Rebecca's blog reviews!

Kawaii Heavy Wetter Review By Cassie
 Many people who use cloth diapers struggle with an overnight solution that works. I thought we were in the clear as we never had a problem using our everyday pocket diapers as our night time diaper….then we started having leaks. I thought perhaps my diapers needed to be stripped and since we had been using them for 15 months, I went ahead and stripped them. Problem…not solved. I then had to accept my little girl wasn’t so little anymore and since she was sleeping longer at night, her diaper was also getting fuller. I knew from other reviews that I wanted to try the Goodnight Heavy Wetter diaper by Kawaii Baby Diapers and was happy to find out that Precious Bottoms Diaper Service and Baby Boutique carried this product.

The Goodnight Heavy Wetter is a one size diaper that fits babies from 8-36 lbs. It comes with 2 large microfiber inserts and the outer layer is made from TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). So between the absorbent inserts and the waterproof outer layer, this diaper is pretty much leak proof. The interior lining is made of a micro fleece and is super soft. I love the simplicity of the dotty print and it is also very gender neutral, which is great in case I ever have a boy. They also come in animal and cow prints.

My oldest daughter, now 19 months, has been wearing these for her night time diaper for several months now. When it is stuffed with both inserts, you can see it is pretty fluffy, but I’m not worried about it being bulky when she is just wearing it with her jammies. The inserts are nice and wide, which allows for easy stuffing. The elastic around the legs doesn’t seem very tight fitting, but I haven’t had any leaks. I suppose it is good that it isn’t too tight since she is in this diaper all night. The snaps in general have a decent lay out which includes a hip snap to eliminate the annoying wing drop you get on some diapers. I find the snaps to be harder to snap than other types, but my hubby doesn’t seem to be phased by them. On the plus side, my daughter definitely can’t get this diaper off during the night.

Although I mainly use these diapers for my oldest, I did try them on our new baby. An important thing to consider if you plan to use one-size diapers for a newborn is can it truly get small enough. I typically like a hook and loop closure, but if you are using snaps like this diaper does, cross-over snaps are a must. As you can see in the photo below, I can still get a great fit on my 9-10 lbs 1 month old with the help of the cross-over snaps.

Even with only using one insert, the diaper does seem to be a bit bulky for a newborn but that is really typical of one-size diapers. As with my oldest daughter, the elastic around the leg didn’t seem very tight, but once again, I didn’t have any leaks even with newborn poo.

The real perk of the Kawaii Baby Diapers is the price. Kawaii Baby Diapers doesn’t have its own retail shop, but operates solely online. This allows them to save money and pass the savings on to their customers. They also don’t spend money on expensive advertising, but rely on word of mouth. I have to admit, I am one of those people that think you “get what you paid for” so I was a bit wary of a cheaper priced diaper, but this affordable, high quality diaper has quickly become our go-to night time diaper.

Kawaii Heavy Wetter Review By Rebecca
A little while back I was struggling with the fact that each morning my little girl was waking up with bed, sheets and clothes soaking wet. I debated on changing her in the middle of the night or even dare I say it? Try disposables at night. *sigh* I asked mamas from all around and I kept hearing about Kawaii Diapers. Luckily, Rachelle the amazing mommy who owns Precious Bottoms Diaper Service and Baby Boutique sells tons of Kawaii and loves them as much as a lot of mommies do. I was stoked to receive mine in the mail, this adorable diaper would hopefully be the fix. I have to say, I really like this diaper. I am not just talking about how cute it is, but the actual fit is perfect for my little girl. No gaping, no red marks around her chubby legs or belly, no sagging and even better, NO LEAKS! The snaps on this diaper are very sturdy and are perfectly positioned.
Since I just have one Kawaii Heavy Wetter in my stash right now, I always make sure it is clean for every other night. I can honestly say that I trust this diaper on road trips, running errands and throughout the night with out having to worry about how long it has been since her last change. Unless my daughter is poopy, I don't rush to change her diaper because I know that she is comfortable and her skin is dry.
