I was super relieved when the second ‘fluff mail’ item came to my mailbox. I opened it up, and it was the Oh Katy Diaper.
It was SO much smaller than the Thirsties diaper I had received, and looked much more familiar to what I had been envisioning in my head.
Overall – I’m slightly indifferent about these diapers. I mean – they’re great! Don’t get me wrong. But I’m not seeing that they have a big ‘wow’ factor. Not that a diaper NEEDS a big wow factor!
I’ve not had any leaking issues with them aside from leaving the kiddos in the diaper too long, no red marks, no ISSUES in general. They’re a good – go-to diaper
This is a really great feature for those moms-on-the-go, but I have yet to have used it other than for practicing. Actually there was one time where I WISHED he was wearing the Oh Katy for the purpose – but he wasn’t. That’s the bummer of only having one Oh Katy – is that when you need it, he’s not wearing it

I have found adjusting the size by one snap is hardly worth it. It decreases the size of the insert about 1” and then adds 1” of bulk in it’s respective place.
You can leave them single, or double them up for extra protection. Doubling makes the diaper pretty thick.
I love that they’re labeled so well, so I know exactly which diaper these belong to.
These seem to fit well – For Andrew they are a perfect fit – so long as it’s snapped tight around his belly
We can get the snaps closed all the way there (but he is pretty thin in his belly area.)
The diaper fits him as if it’s a sized diaper just for him. We could very well loosen up the belly snaps a little more, but then it starts getting droopy on his waist.
This is Ethan’s Waist with one snap undone, which he needs for his thighs, but then he needs his waist all the way snapped – which is an easy fix.
I’m not terribly thrilled that the opening of the pocket is in the front. Only because that means every time I pull out the insert I am getting wet with urine. I understand their thought process behind this – and agree that it is better than getting poop on your hands… but I less often change a poopy diaper than a wet one, and usually you can find one area that doesn’t have poop in the back.
Otherwise, the diaper washes great and dries perfectly. It’s one of the few diapers that I can have them wear right out of the dryer, without having to hang it for a little bit.
Great, solid price of 17.95 per diaper. Meant to fit from small to large babies. The tabs do overlap in the front, so I imagine it could fit a much smaller child as well. But don’t take my word for it, because my babies are big!
Daddy isn’t terribly thrilled. He doesn’t like getting his fingers wet with pee for removing the insert – and often leaves it in for me to do, because he’s stubborn. He doesn’t like the buttons – or that he has to pull it tighter on Andrew’s waist. When he has to make things tight, he ends up pinching the boys with his big hands, and he doesn’t like that.
Then again, he’s really not happy about the whole process any more…
Coming out of the dryer when I’m low on diapers, this is one of the first I can spot – and it’s dry, therefore I use it first. The tags are great on the inserts for that exact purpose.
Like I said above… it’s not really a WOW factor diaper for me, but it’s certainly worth keeping in my stash, and for the price – I’d even add a few more to the stash or to keep in my diaper bag or car!
