Have you heard of AMP diapers? AMP diapers are made in Canada and I had never had the chance to try one until recently. AMP graciously sent me their hemp fitted diaper, I chose size large.
This is what I received:
AMP Hemp fitted diapers are made of two body layers of hemp fleece (55% hemp/45% cotton) plus an additional layer of internal soaker making three layers of absorbency in the diaper body. An extra three-layer hemp fleece doubler is included with each diaper. A two-part diapering system drastically reduces drying times! Soft stretchy elastic gathers at the legs and the back for a great leak-proof fit! Hemp fleece is a nice stretchy fabric that will gently hug your baby. It’s a fantastic fabric for diapers as it’s very absorbent and durable, plus it has antimicrobial properties. High quality resin snaps for ease of use and durability. AMP hemp fitted diapers are very trim fitting and absorbent! Available in two sizes for a great fit from birth to potty learning. Hemp grows with much less need for water and pesticides which means it's not only better for baby but better for the environment as well! Hemp is also much more durable than cotton which means if you're planning on diapering more than one baby hemp is a great choice! All our hemp products are made of pre-washed hemp fleece to minimize shrinkage on finished products.
Small fits approx 8 - 15lbs
Large fits approx 15 - 35lbs
I used this diaper on my 3 yo son. He is a very HEAVY wetter at night. Though we are potty training, he is still not wearing underwear at night time.
This diaper worked great. I love that its made of hemp!
The size large fits approximately 15-35 lbs. My 3 yo is 33 lbs and as you can see from the picture below, it fit him just right! (He is really close to the max weight for this diaper).
This is the same diaper on my 17 month old:
The hemp fleece doubler that comes with the diaper is unlike any I have ever used before. All of the other hemp fitteds I have tried have doublers that snap in. At first I thought this was a bit strange, that the doubler didn't snap to the diaper, but it worked just fine and was nice not to have to unsnap the urine soaked doubler from the diaper when it was time to wash it!
AMP was kind enough to provide this diaper for my review. They also sponsored Blog Bash 2011!
I would really recommend this diaper to those of you with heavy wetters at night. I find that fitted diapers (hemp are my favorite) paired with a wool cover is the only thing that has worked for us for night time!
AMP also makes some other really great diapers!
One Size Duo
AMP Duo Pocket
Inserts and Flats
They also carry a slew of accessories to include pail liners, wet bags, washable wipes and stay dry liners!
The prices are reasonable as well! I would really love to try the AMP One-Size Duo, or the AMP duo pocket next!!
Have you tried an AMP diaper?
