KMChase Designs is owned and operated by WAHM, Katie. When I came across her business, I was seeking organic/natural fiber soakers to experiment with in our cloth diaper stash. I needed something both moisture wicking and super absorbent. Katie was kind enough to make me two soakers made from Organic Bamboo Cotton.
I had never really touched organic bamboo cotton prior to receiving the soakers, but wow is is soft! It seems almost fuzzy, and I’m pretty sure would make a cuddly blanket. I was a bit concern about how it would hold up in the wash, but it’s done great. It has even survived some massive poop attacks. Proof of a high quality fabric!
I chose to try out these soakers in multiple ways before writing up this review, so I’ll share everything with you below.
I started using this soaker just like I would use one of my prefolds. I loved that it was thin and easily fit into Logan’s diapers. I also loved that is was up against his skin instead of tucked into a pocket because of the benefits of natural fibers. I was unsure if it would be absorbent enough for a three hour stint, but it was! No leaks, no problems. Perfect!
The Pocket Stuff
Next I tried this soaker was inside of a pocket diaper. I’m guessing this is probably the most common use. It was super absorbent and functioned great, but I hate having to put my pocket diapers in the pail after only one use, so although it works like it should, I wouldn’t use it like this. You absolutely can because it’s an awesome soaker, but it’s just not my preference.
The Overnight Solution
The last way I used the soaker was in a make shift overnight diaper. I took my Osocozy Fitted added the soaker to it and then finished with a Flip cover. I had my doubts about this being enough absorbency for my son who pees a ton at night, but it held up! There were absolutely no wet spots in our bed the next day and he was still bone dry.
