Oh Katy is a one-size pocket cloth diaper. It has an adjustable rise, allowing the diaper to fit babies from 8lbs to 35lbs. The pocket opening is at the front of the diaper, which is nice, especially when there is a mess! Oh Katy diapers come with 2 inserts, a full size adjustable insert, as well as a newborn/doubler. I love the adjustable insert; it makes it fit in the pocket better when adjusting the rise of the diaper (which makes the diaper shorter), and this way I don’t have to fold it myself, then try to get it to stay folded while I’m stuffing. Not a huge deal, but much more convenient this way!
I was wondering how our experience with Oh Katy diapers would be, as I had heard in the past that these diapers were a bit tight on the thighs and left red marks. Oh Katy has made improvements, and I’m happy to say we didn’t experience any red marks on Connor’s thighs! The messes were kept in without irritating his skin
There are 2 rows of snaps on this diaper, which make it more secure and much more difficult for Connor to unsnap. It also has hip snaps (which help prevent “wing droop”), but they are a bit different than other diapers I’ve tried with hip snaps. The hip snaps are in between the 2 rows of snaps, which I’ve found makes it even more secure and easier to adjust.
Oh Katy diapers are also neat in that, if you are caught without a wet bag, you can just wrap up the diaper and snap the snaps closed, keeping the mess in!
Lastly, Oh Katy diapers come in an assortment of colors, 13 in all. I had a hard time choosing from the fun, bright colors, but in the end chose silver and am very pleased!
I always love to hear how companies got their start. Here is what Katie- creator of the Oh Katy one-size pocket diaper- shared with me.
My husband, Clint and I have been happily married for 8 years. I am a stay-at-home mom to our 4 children, ages 7, 5, 3, and 1. I made my first cloth diapers when my 2nd and 3rd children were both in diapers and my husband was doing his best but struggling to bring in an income because of the down market. I was simply trying to find a way to save money. At the time I had no idea it would turn into a business. When my friends and family started oogling over my diaper creations I decided to start selling them online. After a year of improving my pattern and sewing everything myself (which meant having a living room full of sewing machines, piles of diapers, and loose strands of thread), I decided to take the leap and start having my diapers manufactured. Now I store my inventory in my garage and ship all my orders from home in Spanish Fork, Utah and I’m having so much fun! I can’t explain how rewarding it is to make a product that is so useful, not wasteful at all, and that people love!
