I recently met a wonderful stay-at-home turned work-at-home mom, who owns a store that specializes in all natural and eco-friendly baby products, Up On the Hill. Upon discussing a review and giveaway opportunity, the owner recommended I try one of their cloth diapers, the Kawaii Baby Pure & Natural.
Here are the details from Up On the Hill:
This diaper is ideal for baby from 0 to 15 months.
The Pure & Natural PN2 consists of 2 Parts - A Waterproof Outer Cover + 2 Absorbent Microfiber Inserts
Waterproof Outer Cover
Made of soft and durable TPU fabric. Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a composition specifically adapted to produce non-porous membranes exhibiting waterproof and water vapor transmissible. High performance, durable, excellent water-resistant, cut and tear resistance and soft.
|Comfy Baby Design|
- Wider Pocket Opening for Easy Stuffing
- Larger Laundry Tabs
- Tummy Leakproof Panel - For babies sleeping on their tummy
The Cover has a pocket opening located in the back inner layer to accommodate the microfiber inserts, once stuffed it is just like an (AIO) ALL IN ONE Diaper. The cover itself can also be use as a diaper cover over your favorite prefold or fitted diapers.
Adjustable Fit with Crossover Hook & Loop Tabs
There are 3 rows of snap buttons on the outer cover that will transform the diaper from small to medium and to large. Fit from 6-22lbs.
- Size Small (6-10lbs) - Snap the top row button into the lowest row button
- Size Medium (10-16lbs)- Snap the top row button into the middle row button
- Size Large (16-22lbs) - Leave button un-snap
Environmentally Friendly Microfiber Inserts
The Inserts (or soaker pads) are made from 100% unbleached microfiber. The material has many tiny strands and is environmentally friendly. It has 40x more absorbent surface than cotton and is less bulky. They are soft and easy to clean.
We include 2 Aborbent microfiber inserts in each diaper – one for daytime and the second for nighttime or heavy wetter.
The Cover/Outer Layer is made from a new and improved Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Laminated Fabric. This fabric is highly water resistant, breathable and very durable. The inner layer is made from a super soft suede cloth, which wicks moisture away from babies skins and keep bottom dry.
The Cover has a pocket opening located in the back inner layer to accommodate the microfiber liners/inserts. When stuffed, it is just like an (AIO) ALL IN ONE diaper. The cover itself can also be use as a diaper cover over your favorite prefold or fitted diapers.
This cloth diaper already comes with fold-back laundry tabs, an extra piece of loop tape that lets you fold the hook part of the tab back for washing. By folding the tab back and securing the hook part of the tape, you can keep the hook tape from catching on other diapers in the washer. Folding the tab back also lessens lint buildup in the hoop tape and prolongs the life of the fasteners.
The diaper can be adjusted to fit a baby weighing from 6-22lbs. An easy and flexible Velcro fastener can be folded down from the waist to create a even slimmer fit.

After properly prepping this diaper I tried it out on my daughter (9.5 months, 19 lbs.). My biggest issue with my previous cloth diaper experience (another brand) was the fit didn't work (too tight) for my son and left these awful red marks on his legs (he wasn't a big baby at all). This diaper was completely different! I only used one insert for the first run and it fit so perfectly! I could tell that she loved it too as she was strutting her stuff all over our house.
Now, I know the biggest thing you are thinking is "Did it keep her dry?" The answer is "Absolutely!" In fact, we were able to keep her in it for a few hours through a nap, with only one insert, and you couldn't even tell it was wet! The second time we used it, she decided to really leave us a treat and it was really easy to discard the waste in the toilet.
The only thing that I would consider doing to try and extend the use of the cover is to lay the microfiber insert on the inside instead of stuffing the pocket or using prefolds.
Other than that (which is really a personal preference, not a complaint) my overall experience with this diaper was wonderful! It is economical, easy to use/wash and very well designed. The last thing I want to mention is how affordable this diaper is! For $8.50 you receive (1) cover and (2) inserts!
