Tuck & Go Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

Posted by Green Team at 8:43 PM
Okay - here is my far past due review on the Monkey Doodlez NEW Tuck & Go Diaper! I first began using it in July, so I did want to give some fair time before reviewing it... and then I may have forgotten a bit (sorry Cheryl!!!)

Monkey Doodlez NEW Tuck and Go(TAG) Cloth Diaper has several rave reviews! I've had several customers come in and try one set... and come back for more! This is one of the most versatile diapering system ever - The system as a unit offers unsurpassed performance and leak protection without compromising fit or adding unnecessary bulk! Who could ask for a better diaper???

So here is the description:

The TAG System is getting rave reviews by new and experienced Moms alike!

Easy to Use. Revolutionary. Functional.

How does this sytem work? The TAG is comprised of two pieces - a waterproof outer shell and a luxiously soft inner pad. The Tuck and Go™ cover is uniquely designed to allow the pad to be easily yet securely tucked in at the front and back edge, making it extremely simple and efficient. Siimply tuck the pad into the cover and fasten the diaper onto your baby. There are no extra steps and the velcro closures make it both infinitely adjustable and intuitive to use.

When it's time to change the diaper, remove the shell from the baby, hang on to the outside cover, hold it over your pail, turn it over and the pad falls right out. This eliminates the possibility or necessity of touching wet or dirty inserts.

The front and back of the cover as well as the elastic at the leg casings are lined with soft microfleece to ensure optimum comfort and the edges of the tuck zones are gently gathered to keep everything in place.The Unique design creates a natural barrier to moisture for unsurpassed leak protection.

The waterproof cover adjusts to accommodate a larger size range while using the same pad and without compromising fit or adding unnecessary bulk. This makes this a highly functional yet trim diapering solution.

The Tuck and Go™ cover can be used with the TAG pads or over prefolds or fitted diapers.

The pad is made from a blend of 70% Bamboo Rayon, 28% Organic Cotton and 2% Polyester for optimum absorbency, breathability and comfort, with silky soft velour next to baby's skin.

The pad is gently gathered at the legs for the best fit, allowing the diaper to better cradle baby's bottom and adds a gentle barrier to help prevent leaks. The elastic is neatly stitched inside the pad so it will never touch baby's delicate skin.

Sizing for Covers and Pads:

  • Small fits babies 6-18lbs
  • Medium fits babies 12-28lbs
  • Medium Long fits babies 18-35 lbs
  • Large fits babies 30-45 lbs

So, Noah started using the Medium Long when he was around 22lbs. I could put it on the snap down, however, the rise was pretty short, so we have it on the full setting. One thing I will say is I'm not sure if it will fit him til he is 35lbs, he is around 26lbs now... however I do also think it would have fit him when he was around 16lbs, maybe even 15. I think that overall for any diaper, the size is going to be different on any baby based on their build.

Pros - The Bamboo Blend Insert is SUPER absorbent! WOW - I can't believe how heavy it has been after use and not a single leak. I have been tempted to do a before and after weight.... however I have not gotten around to it. I think it would work well for night time - or if you have a really heave wetter, you could probably use 2 of the inserts for that extra protection. I have used it for night time - in which it was super soaked and HEAVY, however, my son always has a tendency to wake up sometime between 4-6 for a diaper change no matter how dry or wet his diaper is. I think it's our pattern we developed somehow.

I love the fleece around the covers, it adds a nice touch. And the inserts tuck nicely inside. You can even use these covers with prefolds or fitteds if you like! We have personally used it with prefolds and it works great - however... we do prefer using the TAG inserts since it isn't as bulky. Now, for those of you that like using the disposable inserts, I am positive those would also fit nicely inside of that to use! I have no experience with the disposable inserts because if I can, I will stick to the cloth, but I knew some might wonder about that!

I have also been using the TAG Inserts in my pocket diapers and it works fabulously! I'm sure I could even place them directly on another cover in a pinch, but I know they stay a lot more secure in place in the TAG Diaper Cover!

The only downfall I find of the diaper is that I'm a Pocket and All In one gal! I definitely prefer this diaper over prefolds and covers, but in all reality, I like to use my diaper once and put the whole thing in the pail liner. But this is definitely a simple and economic solution for cloth diapering!

Now... (drum roll please)... for the giveaway... I have 1 ML Butter Cover and 1 ML TAG insert to giveaway - and I'm throwing in a credit for a Free cover with a purchase of a set of inserts for the winner when you want to come back and buy more :)

WillieDsMomma on September 30, 2010 at 7:03 AM said...

I think I would like this cover / insert set because it seems easier to setup, I found the econo set from a "smart" line to be too bulky and alittle hassle to get the prefold size right to work with my boy whos a squirmer.

I like not having to unstuff - just flip the insert out. I also prefer to use a diaper only once, but I'm sure I could still do it with this cover set.

I think the way the insert just tucks in looks pretty interesting! I think it would be nice to just shake the insert out of the cover.

So the most interesting thing about the TAG diaper to me is that it looks so soft. The pad you tuck is not your typical insert. I wish I had known about this diaper sooner.
