Review: Tiny Tush Elite Pocket Diapers One-Size

Type:  One-Size, Pocket
Materials:  PUL outer layer, snaps or Aplix, micro-fleece inner fabric, 1 regular microfiber insert and 1 microfiber doubler
Fit:  7 - 35 lbs.
How it works:  Tiny Tush Elites are a OS Pocket diaper which allow you to adjust the rise of the diaper to accommodate a growing child and to stuff the diaper with inserts to adjust absorbency.  They can come in either snaps or Aplix tabs.  I have Snaps.

Thoughts from Amanda:

Aesthetics -  A good quality diaper.  It reminds me of a Haute Pocket Diaper in the rise in that the rise is higher than, say, a bumGenius 3.0.  The snaps are white which contrasts with non-white diapers, but that doesn't bother me.  It comes in a decent variety of colors.  I wish they had an orange diaper.  That seems to be the only color they're missing.  There are no patterns available though.  The logo tag on this diaper is fairly large and old fashioned but that doesn't bother me.  I give this a 4 because of the limited color choices and lack of patterns.
Functionality - This is one of my favorite diapers, and I would happily have a whole stash of these if I wasn't so intruiged by variety.  :)  Then snaps are spaced out nicely so as to give a nice fit.  My only qualm with the snaps on this diaper is that they do not overlap on the front wings which will make it difficult to use on a small baby.  The 4 snap rise setting is great as it gives you some more flexibility.  And while my son is on the highest rise setting in some other diapers.  In these he is on the Medium-Large setting (or the last row of snaps before having it open all of the way).  The legs have some good stretch to them, but stay tight around the thigh, and the inner micro-fleece is sooooooooo soft.  And unlike my Fuzzi Bunz OS diapers this micro-fleece does a good job of staying dry to the touch.  The inserts are also nice and fluffy.  They are soft to the touch and absorb well.

Durability - So far this diaper has held up well.  It's nice that you don't have to contend with diaper chain in the washer/dryer due to the snaps, but I love that you  have the option to buy this diapers with either snaps or Aplix (velcro).  That will help it to appeal to a lot more customers.  I don't have any piling on the inner micro-fleece so it lives up to it's "anti-piling" claim.  As always I hang my diapers to dry so I have no comment on how it is in the dryer.  But, I'm sure it will do fine.  There has never been a stray thread.  Ever!  This is my favorite diaper to pull out of the drawer.  I save it for a time of day when I know my son is going to get to spend a good 2 hours in it because I know he'll be comfortable.  I HIGHLY recommend the Tiny Tush Elite Pocket Diaper OS.  I have another one on the way as I type!
