Review & Giveaway: Smush Tush

By now you know how much I love cloth diapers.  Besides being a great financial option and lowering my impact on the environment, they’re just so darn cute!  I usually spend a great deal of time browsing Etsy for ones that catch my eye, and when I came across Smush Tush I fell in love with all of their unique prints.  This shop carries regular diaper covers, pocket diaper covers, newborn diaper covers and two kinds of absorbent inserts.  Covers and inserts are sold separately, but they’re still extremely affordable!  I prefer Mom owned businesses over big box retailers any day, but when I found out that Kat (the talented Mama behind Smush Tush) also supports a great cause I knew I had to share with my readers!  Here’s a little about her, her business, and the charity she supports.

My name is Kat and I live in Portland, Oregon.  I am the mother of two little Smushes under the age of three and a part-time pediatric RN.  I started Smush Tush about a month ago because I believe in cloth diapers. Nothing makes more sense than saving money, keeping our landfills free from everlasting disposable diaper garbage, and of course, there is nothing cuter than a fluffy tush!  Like every one of us CDing mamas, I quickly became obsessed, and then that obsession developed into creating unique diapers for friends, which further became a small business.  Mostly, I just want to help raise awareness about the ease and awesomeness that is cloth diapering.  
I donate $1 from every Smush Tush sale directly into a Morale Fund for the unit I work on at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland.  I work on an Intermediate Care Unit, which is a step-down unit from the Pediatric ICU.  Most of our patients suffer from congenital conditions, brain tumors, extreme developmental delays, and trauma incidents.  These extremely sick kiddos don’t see much in funds from the community like other units do, and I felt an immense need to help.  Though I can’t provide 72-inch flat-screen televisions ala Microsoft, with all the help from my customers, we can provide smiles in the simple form of pizzas, snacks, and movies for the sick little smushes and their families on my unit.  I am and forever will be grateful for all of your support.

Smush Tush cloth diaper

I was sent an Owl print Pocket diaper cover for my review.  Isn’t it cute?  It even came with a little instruction packet/ tip sheet full of FAQ’s on cloth diapering!  This one is made from an outer layer of PUL and a super soft Microfleece inner lining.  I stuffed it with one of my own standard Microfiber inserts for the review, but medium sized prefolds fit just as well.  The craftsmanship of this diaper is amazing.  The stitching is very straight and strong, the elastic is generous, and I have no doubt it will last both of my kids to potty training.

 Little J is just under 25 pounds at 21 months old, and while he is tall he’s a bit on the skinny side.  I love the fit on this diaper, it is very trim and doesn’t have a ton of extra fabric to bunch up but still allows for growing room.  I can even get it under a pair of jeans!  The fleece lining is super soft and really wicked away any moisture even when the diaper was full.  There are three different rise settings and a very generous waist range, so it truly fits any baby.  I really have nothing bad to say about this diaper, and I hope you will check out Smush Tush for yourself!

    I LOVE the Dinos OS pocket diaper!!! I have had Smush Tush on my Etsy Faves for awhile now since I’m pregnant and plan on buying some very soon 🙂 I just so happened to see this giveaway today, which is funny b/c I JUST posted a couple hours ago about my fave cloth diaper Etsy stores and this was one of them I posted about!!! LOL

    I would love either the one size pocket style in pirates or retro owls prints. I LOVE that these come with fleece that is not white on the inside!!

    I love the dinosaurs and the cars. Actually, I love them all, they are so stinking cute, but I am convinced this baby in my belly is a boy.

  5. says

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen so many cute prints in one place. I love the dinos print, the Elephants, and the Tiny giraffes, and about 10 more of them 🙂

    Wow, all of these are adorable! I love the Kermit Custom the best! (sorry, I forgot to leave my name on the one above )

    Hard choice, but the retro owls OS pocket is absolutely adorable! So cute that it slightly outweighs my normal giraffe obsession… but that’s a close #2. 🙂

  8. says

    There are so many great prints, I love the Ooga Boogas, Pirate prints and of course the O’Canada print, can’t think of anything better than that for a babe on Canada Day

    The One-Size Pocket Style Cloth Diaper: Pirates Print is by far my favorite with One-Size Pocket Style Cloth Diaper: Comic Book Print coming in a VERY close second. lol
