Tushions 1.2 – A quick review

Cloth Diapering! It’s the way of the future. It’s what’s going to save the earth of the unnecessary landfill. It’s more than just safe for your baby. 2 years back, when I first heard about cloth diapering, I couldn’t understand much. There were so many types, folds, fabrics… It got a wee bit overwhelming, but my friends were there to the rescue. Slowly, we shifted from disposables to cloth diapers (when L was 4 months old) and since then haven’t used one disposable diaper for him! It looked like a costly affair, but the bonus point there was the fact that there were no chemicals, it was reusuable and most importantly, it lasts long. Long enough for your second kid ๐Ÿ˜‰ *When maintained right*

So, here we are diapering Isha since the day she was born in nothing but cloth diapers. Of course, we did some disposables in between but now it’s cloth all the way and it feels good to have started off that way (will blog about this separately). ‘

In our cloth diapering journey, we have come across many brands. Many, made in India. Here’s one brand that is based out of Bangalore and has gotten into manufacturing their own diapers. Tushions. I have known them for a while now & when Jaya said that she was making her own diapers and wanted me to review them for her, it was a straight yes!

A little background, we had also reviewed their earlier version of the organic AIO in a lovely Firework print diaper in black and that too worked amazingly well (with the toddler) <3 Sadly this one isnt in stock now!

This diaper, the Tushions 1.2 AIO (pieces of blue) , is an all in one diaper made ofย 100% Organic Cotton and comes ready to go on the bum! Can you imagine that? It doesn’t need prep and true to its word, the diaper worked well otb in our first attempt. The diaper is made to fit fromย 3 months to 3 years (4-15 Kgs) and worked well with Isha.tush

What we liked:

1. The soft outer PUL. If you know diaper PULs, this is a relief.
2. The ready to go nature. Saves a LOT of time.
3. ย The organic cotton is super soft and looks like a cloud!
4. The seams are designed in a way that they dont curl nor do they leave marks on the baby no matter how snuggly fit.
5. How long it goes – We went through about 4 hours with this diaper and only changed because we had to.
6. Doesn’t stain. If you know how newborn poop can stain a dipe, let me tell you this one doesn’t retain any trace of stains. A little bit of sun drying made it all good.

What we would want to be suggest:

1. more cute prints ๐Ÿ˜‰

Although in some moments, I found it to be slightly broad at the crotch, but then again its a 2 month old who’s sporting it now! So it could work better with slightly older babies, IMO.

Overall, this dipe is a good stash collection. You might want to own a bunch of this, to keep your nap time complete. No changes called for, no leaks and definitely no discomfort!

M.I.A. Momma!

6 months is a bloody long time to be missing in action. That too for a mom who can hardly shut up about things around her. But then, that’s where nature kicks in. We have been busy baking baby#2 which seems to be consuming more time and energy than my toddler himself. Ah well! There are things you can plan and there are things you cannot. Junior seems to belong to the latter category. What can I say? ๐Ÿ˜‰

2 announcement

There are pros and cons to the whole deal (or that’s what we have been telling ourselves). For one, I will get to sleep through the night without having to nurse or change poopy diapers *in a few years from now*. Yes, I wouldn’t have to revisit the whole baby deal after a 5 year break (that does sound like torture to me.. to be able to sleep well once your first kid has grown up and then go back to sleepless nights). And like I have mentioned earlier, Junior should be renamed the ‘Economy mode’ baby! He or She, gets everything from L in mint condition ๐Ÿ˜‰ Right from clothes to cloth diapers to toys and the babywearing gear. Hurrray for all the savings we will make *cough cough*

So, yes. Managing a toddler, trying to keep your head high above the water on a personal level AND making a baby can be quite a laborious venture. I am 2/3rds done. Just can’t wait for November to see what’s going to happen. I mean, how hard is going to be with a kid in his terrible twos and a bawling little scrawny newborn, right? (I can hear you snigger from far away ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Maturity. I get it now. I am not yet 30, but I KNOW that for the next few years I am going to be a whirlwind of a mess (in all likelihood). I am going to be dealing with a chimp and a baby monkey. It’s going to be a circus. There’s going to be piles of laundry, floor laden with toy land mines and maybe (NOT) poop or spit up. But I am sure it’s going to fun and worth the whole deal in the long run!

For now, I am just praying L doesn’t get over friendly with my bump in the coming few months. He already enjoys talking to ‘bibi’ and sometimes getting physically over friendly with it too!

Aaaand yes, I am back ๐Ÿ™‚ Got a lot more stuff lined up to talk about and you sure don’t want to miss it, do you?
