Review - Baby Kangas by JamTots2:52 PM
I'll put my disclaimer first - I was not given any products or compansation for this review. I purchased all diapers and inserts myself and am giving my honest opinion about this product.
I purchased 24 Baby Kanga diapers around the beginning of June. The reason for the purchase was for our new arrival in November but I figured since Hannah was still wearing diapers we'd try them on her before the new baby came. I was super excited. I had heard pretty good things about this pouch diapers and couldn't wait to get started.
The pouch is located on the outside of the diaper to make insert removal clean and easy. Just unzip and shake it over your diaper pail to get the insert out. The zipper closure makes stuffing easy and keeps the insert inside where it belongs.
The colour selection is amazing and I was excited to choose the colours I wanted, I won't bore you with all the colours I chose but look at this selection
I thought that was a decent response even though I thought it a bit strange that they recommend using a different system all together.Hi Kandice,
What are you using to stuff your Baby Kangas so far (and are they the only diapers you are using at night?) Are the inserts soaked in the morning? It might be that your little girl is just wetting a *lot* at night now that she is... older (mine were like that!) and that she needs more absorbency than what you are currently using... With that said... it may even be that you may need more absorbency than what will actually fit inside a Baby Kangas diaper(!)-some kids actually wet that much over night (when you think about it--they often sleep 12+ hours so it can be a LOT of pee!) That may be the reason for the sore legs--the diaper might be too small for night use with the extra stuffing for her--you may need to use a different system for night time--either a sized pocket diaper or a fitted diaper and cover system where you can add extra inserts/doublers -either way where I would recommend going *up* a size from where you would normally buy for her weight measurement--to allow for the extra absorbency that she would need--so probably a large or extra large depending on the brand. I have cloth diapered all 3 of my kids - 2 that wet a LOT at night and I always recommend putting MORE than you think you will need in the diaper - then check to see how much is left dry in the morning and then gauge from there how much (if any!!) you can subtract from there for the next night... Of course this can change over time but it can give you a pretty good idea for a while! I recommend hemp or bamboo stuffers/inserts for overnight for sure but again--you probably need more than what you are using as it sounds like you just don't have enough absorbency to make it through the night!
I hope that helps!
So here's my final verdict....
Ease of use - Very easy to figure out the snaps for both rise and waist adjustment. Stuffing is SO easy and the front zip up pocket is amazing. I love it! Shaking out the insert over the pail is easy and never requires you to touch a soiled diaper. The diapers are very easy to put on (even my husband commented on it) although I have noticed the rise snaps have popped open a couple of times I've tried the smaller rise on my daughter.
