Ottawa Cloth Diapers – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

Ottawa Cloth Diapers is a primarily online store that focuses on cloth diapers and cloth diaper accessories, but also has lots of other products like baby carriers, natural toys and mama cloth.

For review, I was sent a SoftBums Omni cloth diaper in Sprout (appropriate, since that’s our baby-to-be’s nickname).  SoftBums is a brand that is new to me but I’m becoming quite a big fan!  This is the only one-sized diaper that I’ve come across that is adjusted, not through snaps or elastics, but a toggle system!  Here’s what I mean:

This is the easiest diaper I’ve ever had to adjust.  It takes seconds to adjust the toggle to get the perfect fit for your baby and it’s supposed to fit legs from 4″ to 14″.  I’ve only used it on my toddler so far since the new baby isn’t here but I’m looking forward to trying it out on a bitty baby too.

As you can see, the Omni has a velcro fastener.  This is an industrial strength velcro and so far it’s still looking great and the laundry tabs are working like they should – meaning the tabs stay closed when I wash and dry the diaper.  Ashlyn hasn’t managed to undo it yet but I’m not saying that too loudly in case I jinx myself!

The Omni is also unique in that there are 3 ways that you can use it: you can snap the pod (insert) to the back and lay it on top of the cover, you can stuff the insert into the pocket, or you can use a prefold and the Omni as a cover.

I have been snapping the insert and I love it!  I think I’ll be picking up a few more of the SUPER dry touch pods and maybe an organic bamboo pod so that I can reuse the Omni cover by just changing the pod.  I find this is a very absorbant diaper and since the pod snaps to the back of the diaper, I don’t have to worry about it shifting around and causing any leaks.  An added bonus is that if there is a messy poopy diaper – hey, you can’t talk cloth diapers without talking poop! – the snap means that you can scrape the pod without getting the mess on you because it stays in place.

Ottawa Cloth Diapers ships to the United States and Canada, offers free shipping on Canadian orders over $99, and if you live in the Ottawa area you can arrange to pick up your order instead of paying for shipping!
