Tie on a Tushie Ties Cloth Diaper & Win

Giveaway Alert!  Read to the bottom to win your own Tushie Ties cloth diaper!

Have you heard of Tushie Ties yet? They aren’t new but they are a small mom owned and operated company that is local to my area (Tampa Bay, FL).  I had the honor of meeting Crystal (the owner) in the spring at the Great Cloth Diaper Change Tampa Bay.  In fact, we’re already planning to work together on the 2012 GCDC and have some big surprises in store for our local friends.

I had coffee a few months back with Crystal and she offered me one of her diapers to test out.  If you know me I love new diapers but I usually stick with pockets and simple diapers.  The Tushie Tie diaper is similar to a prefold but instead of using a pin or snappi you tie it on with a piece of ribbon that is sewn on the diaper.  The ribbon is sewn on the front and there are two small reinforced holes at the top.  You lay the diaper down like a prefold (angel fold style) and simple lace the ribbon through the holes and tie it on.  It’s actually quite simple and it looks adorable once it’s on.  There is no PUL on the diaper so you will need a cover with these.

The standard (or original) Tushie Ties are made from a Bamboo Velour that is super soft next to the babies skin and so absorbent.  Since they are similar to a prefold you can fold them any way you like. Here is a quick video shared from Crystal about how to use the Tushie Ties.

Since we’ve been potty training we’ve only used our Tushie Ties at night and I’ve been super impressed with how well they kept her dry.  We did receive an extra bamboo velour doubler (sold separately) that we use at nights and it certainly helps for those toddler nights.  Like I said earlier – I’m not a huge prefold girl so I don’t have much experience folding and fitting them.  It took me a few practice rounds with Lil’ B to feel comfortable with the fit.  I always ended up with droopy legs that didn’t fit well inside the cover but after talking with Crystal (and a few more practice rounds) I’ve finally mastered the prefold and the Tushie Tie.  If you’ve used prefolds in any capacity you’ll have no problem at all with the Tushie Tie from day one!

The original Tushie Tie comes in a wide variety of ribbon patterns and colors and since it’s a small company I’m pretty sure you could talk Crystal into customizing your ribbon to match just about anything.  In addition to the regular Tushie Ties, Crystal also makes an economy line called the Simplicity.  It’s the same exact diaper but in a cotton fleece lycra (90% cotton) instead of bamboo.  The original sells for $15 each and the Simplicity for $7.99 each!!  Not bad for natural fibers if you ask me.  You can also purchase the doublers in a 3 pack for only $12.  I’ve actually used the doubler in just about every nighttime diaper we have – including our new FuzziBunz Trickle Free Trainer!!

Here are some vintage iPhone pics that I was able to capture before bedtime one night.  They are soft focused on purpose to try and disguise the messy bedroom! LOL!
