Mini Maestro cloth diapers – review & giveaway

MiniMaestro was created by a mom, Sophie, after her daughter was born.  Unhappy with using disposables but unable to find a cloth diaper made commercially that fit all of her criteria (trim, leak resistant, easy to use and to clean, made in Canada, affordable), she decided to take matters into her own hands and MiniMaestro was born!

I was happy to learn about MiniMaestro and even happier to find out that they’re made in Quebec and the company is run out of Ottawa (where I live).  Sophie generously sent me an extra small MiniMaestro in kelly green/mint and a small in butter yellow/orange.  Both diapers came with an insert made of microfibre and bamboo.

We started using cloth diapers when Rowan was about a week old.  Here she is modelling her MiniMaestro XS at 2 weeks old and roughly 8 lbs.

I took the picture before the “Mom, I’m freezing here, lets get some clothes on” crying started, so it’s actually quite loosely done up.  At that weight, I could get the tabs done up with about 1.5 inches of space between them and the rise was low enough that it didn’t rub against her belly button.  Rowan still fits in them now at 5 weeks old (and I’m guessing close to 10 lbs) but the XS is definitely going to be too small in the waist in a week or two if she keeps growing at this rate.

Here she is in her MiniMaestro Small at 4 weeks old and roughly 9.5 lbs.  We’ve got plenty of room left on this one!

I have found the MiniMaestro diapers to be easy to use (no harder than a disposable since they have nice, wide Velcro tabs) and easy to clean.  They dry quite quickly and are very absorbent – no leaks to date!

They are also nice and trim, which is great when baby is still young and wearing one piece outfits or sleepers, since they aren’t cut for big, bulky cloth diaper bums!
