Sarah sent me a Happy Hempy to review. Happy Hempys are made of two luscious layers of Hemp Fleece, which is a combination of 55% hemp 45% cotton. This fitted diaper has a pocket for stuffing which allows you to customize the amount of absorbency your individual baby needs. Happy Hempys do need a cover. For night time use, fleece and wool covers are wonderful, as they allow baby's skin to breathe all night. The Happy Hempy is an all natural diaper. The Happy Hempy is prewashed which means that although it is hemp, you don't have to wash it ten times before it reaches full absorbency like most hemp diapers.When I first received this diaper, I washed it twice just to be sure it was ready. It was actually much bigger than I expected. I chose a large because the size chart says the large fits 20 to 35 pounds...I guess the 20 inch rise should have told me I really needed a medium. I stuffed the diaper with a hemp prefold & Melanie wore it all afternoon, including a 2 hr nap with no leaks.
Melanie will not wear a diaper over her belly button, so the excess tends to cause an extra fluffy butt.For overnight she wore it stuffed with 2 hemp prefolds with her large Stacinator fleece cover. She woke up dry in the morning.
What I like about this diaper:
- prewashed hemp
- fitted diaper
- customizable absorbency
- size chart is way out of line with how the diaper fits
- aplix closure (Melanie can take it off at will)
- one of the least trim fitting diapers we've tried
