The Sassy Monkey Review

Last month, I received a diaper from The Sassy Monkey to facilitate writing a review.  As always, I’ll be completely and utterly honest as I go through the points of the fitted diaper.

Who Is The Sassy Monkey?

The Sassy Monkey is a WAHM diaper shop located in Lexington, Kentucky.  Candace, the artist behind The Sassy Monkey, makes diapers and other textiles that are available in her Etsy shop.  I discovered her through the Diaper Frenzy Congo.  I’ve used both her hybrid fitted and a fitted fitted (no hidden fleece, just a standard fitted) with great success.

The Sassy Monkey Review (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

The Sassy Monkey Diaper

For this review, I received a standard fitted diaper with serged edges.  The outer is a cotton knit while the inner is made of organic bamboo velour.  In between the cotton and bamboo velour, there are hidden layers of super thirsty heavy organic bamboo fleece.  The inner doubler is heavy organic bamboo fleece layered between organic cotton velour.  It can be tri-folded for three layers of absorbency or quad-folded for four layers.

What I Love About The Sassy Monkey

The Sassy Monkey (Cloth Diaper Addicts)I’m just amazed by how pretty this diaper is.  I’m not a big one on the whole striped diaper thing, but the print on this just made me happy.  As always, though the first thing that I do when I get a new diaper is start picking it apart for manufacture flaws.  Is the stitching even?  Are the edges clean?  Is everything straight and aligned properly?  When I looked at The Sassy Monkey fitted diaper, the answer was a resounding “yes.”

Then there’s the fit.  The cotton knit is a stretchy fabric, which guarantees a perfect fit on Eudora.  The diaper also features a snap down rise to make it one size, which is my preference for any one size diaper.  The snaps are perfectly aligned and have the right little popping sound Sassy Monkey Review (Cloth Diaper Addicts)when they are snapped and unsnapped.

As for absorbency, I’m not getting all that I can from the super thirsty layers of heavy organic bamboo fleece.  The diaper is just too pretty to hide under a cover, which means I have to change her before the entire diaper has had a chance to absorb.  The good news is that I can get about an hour and a half of uncovered wear from The Sassy Monkey fitted.  If I were to cover it, I suspect that it would last my light wetter all night.

The Sassy Monkey fitted diaper is just plain squishy and the organic bamboo velour inner is just amazingly soft against the skin.  Honestly, it’s so snuggly that I’d kind of like to see loveys made from that material.

What I Don’t Love About The Sassy Monkey

I’m kind of at a loss on this one.  Usually, I can find something to nitpick, even if it’s a tiny, small detail.  The only thing that I can really come up with is that I wish that the diaper were a hybrid fitted instead of a fitted fitted so that it would last longer.  That’s not actually a flaw at all, though, because it’s not the diaper.

The Sassy Monkey in a Nutshell

If you’re into WAHM diapers, then The Sassy Monkey is one that you need to give a shot.  I suspect that I’ve found a new cloth diaper maker to collect.  You can find her diapers on Diaper Frenzy Congo at Facebook and on her Etsy store.

  16. Elizabeth T says:

    Those are cute makes me wished i had used something like this :/ but, they are all out of diapers now.

  17. Looks like a great diaper. In your opinion are WAHM diapers like this one worth the extra cost?

    • Yes, absolutely. You’re paying for quality and appearance. If cuteness, function, and uniqueness are important all important, then WAHM diapers are the way to go as a companion to your big name diapers.

  18. Wow, it’s pretty great you can go 1.5 hours without a cover. That’s a very absorbent diaper in my book!

  19. I have been wanting to try a hybrid fitted. I love the pattern on the fitted in the pictures! Will totally have to look into getting one 🙂
