I am a FAN GIRL of Petite Crown. And really of the owner Mari. That’s right. I said it. They are a new cloth diaper company, but they are doing ALL of it right! You are gonna want to keep reading so you can see why I love them so much.
Of course I’m going to tell you how great the diapers are, but you know what really makes them shine? For every product purchased, Petite Crown donates a cloth diaper to a family in need. They have partnered with Jake’s Diapers for this amazing act of charity. Petite Crown truly believes no family should struggle for the necessities.
I do currently work with Petite Crown as they are a sponsor for All About Cloth Diapers. But everything I say here is honest and true.
Back to the diapers being amazing. I wanted to quickly tell you about two of my favorite styles…
The Trima, which is an all in one, is labeled to fit from 8-35 lbs. Sizing is generous and I actually have a feeling that they could last a bit beyond that.
My youngest, Norah, is now 2.5 and about 30 lbs. I think she was 38″ but I’m guessing on the height. She is on the last rise setting although I do go back and forth to one rise down. There are still has a few snaps left at the waist so there is plenty of room to grow.
All of Petite Crown’s products are well made. Elastics are nice and stretchy but still have that quality feel to them as they bounce back into shape easily. The snaps give a satisfying pop when you close them.
Mine have been washed about 18-20 times now. They still look barely used. Yay! That bodes well for long term durability. (I forgot to take a current photo before but I will add that once they are out of the wash so you can see. )
I hate when diapers looks ratty after just a few washes. It’s a sign of inferior quality materials being used. If a brand is using inferior materials, where else have they cut corners?
These wash easy and the inserts dry fast. The Trima is an all in one, but is made of two snap on overlapping petal inserts. This my friends, is why it won’t take forever to dry like some all in ones. Each insert is 1 layer of bamboo cotton and 2 layers of hemp cotton. It is also lined with bamboo cotton which provides an additional layer of absorbency . This makes for 7 layers of absorbency in the diaper.
It is also what would be considered a stuffable all in one. That means there’s a pocket behind the snap on inserts that you can use to stuff in extra absorbency if you need it. I tested the Trima as part of my absorbency tests. It got a respectable 13 oz. This is a great amount for even a heavy wetter during the day.
If plan to use these for extended naps or even night, go ahead and utilize the stuffable pocket. Hemp boosters are always a nice choice as they are trim and absorbent.
I’m just going to also quickly go over the Petite Crown Catcher cover. It is a one size cover with an adjustable snap rise and is labeled to fit 10-40 lbs.
I’ve gotten these to cover most of my bulky overnight fitteds. So they are ROOMY. The reason I said some is that there isn’t quite enough rise for night fitteds that have a larger rise themselves. But it’s certainly worth a try with these, as it held up well for me and my kid is a super soaker at night and also on the taller side.
The Catcher features double leg gussets. That means you can stuff a mattress in and not get leg gaps. This also means they are very easy for ANYONE to put on and get an easy, great fit.
You can use any absorbency inside them (just no microfiber). And they are reusable. Just wipe the cover out between uses and keep using until it smells or gets poo-ed in.
Petite Crown has been doing it all right. They have provided high quality, easy to use cloth diapers. They are treating their customers right. And they are giving back. Why not become a fan girl with me and give them a try?
The Petite Crown Trima is $22.95 and the Catcher Cover is $16.95. Shipping is free with orders of $70 or more. https://petitecrown.com/
