My name is Tara and I am the owner of Padded Tush Stats. I am a happy mom of two. I stay home with my kids as much as possible, but I am also a full time graduate student in education. I have cloth diapered for two years now and love it. I started only because I am just so frugal, but now I am excited about how I am helping the environment.
I experienced a lot of difficulties finding the "right" diaper for my daughter. She is a heavy wetter, so I went through a lot of brands before I found what worked for me. But I spent quite a bit of money on highly recommended brands, only to find that they didn't work for her. That's when I wondered if there was a way to categorize reviews based on the unique needs of babies. My dissertation is a survey study on writing programs--so when I had this question about cloth diapering reviews, my mind immediately went to surveys! The surveys in here are in no way a reflection of fancy statistics and survey work, so please don't judge me on that. These are just simple surveys to hopefully help out a few cloth diapering parents/guardians.
I have two main beliefs when it comes to diaper reviews: (1) For every diaper, there is a baby out there that it works well for. Therefore, reviews at Padded Tush Stats emphasize what kinds of babies certain diapers work well for, and perhaps struggles some people may have with a diaper. Since I include both the praises of the diaper and the issues people had, you can expect a pretty honest review. (2) People (including myself) can give up on a diaper because of a certain issue without even troubleshooting with the makers of the diaper. I have found that the makers provide a lot of great tips. That is why all reviews are shown to the diaper makers with the option for them to provide comments; however, I DO NOT change any answers, I simply give them a chance to add a comment.
I hope you will find this information helpful!
