Rarpz Review

I was asked to review Rarpz pocket diapers. Rarpz is a company out of New Zealand. She sent me two of the cutest diapers! One is a little shark (with a fin on the back of it) and the other is a glow in the dark Halloween diaper. 
They are made of minky which is a super soft fabric. The inside of the diaper is super soft microfleece. The inserts are half bamboo and half microfiber. You fold the insert into thirds and then stuff it into the diaper. There is elastic around the opening of the pocket. 
Sorry for the sideways picture 

At first I was a little nervous to try these diapers out. First of all, I do not like pocket diapers. I've tried many brands and I usually end up selling them because pockets just don't work for us. And secondly, I do not like minky. As nice as the fabric is, I've found that minky really leaks and wicks around the legs. I've tried multiple brands and for some reason, minky diapers all do that for us. But that is not the case at all with Rarpz diapers! They are such great diapers! We've been using them for both kids (2 month old and 30 month old) who both happen to be very heavy wetters. We have never had a leak in these diapers. I tried them out for naps on the first day and both kids slept longer than usual. They held up perfectly.
The inserts are very absorbent. I love that they are made of two of the most absorbent materials. The inserts are easy to stuff and can hold a ton of pee! They fit perfectly on both kids. They are a tiny bit bulky on my 2 month old but it doesn't bother her and they work great. (All other One Size diapers are still bulky on her as well.)
 How adorable are these Shark Pups? 
 On my 30 month old who is around 28 pounds. 
 On my chunky 2 month old. She's around 11 pounds.  
 Perfect for Halloween! Are these so adorable?
Glow in the dark! 
I must say that these are now one of my favorite diapers. I've been set on my favorite brands of diapers for the past year and no other diaper I've tried has come close to becoming my favorite. (Trust me, I've tried a ton!) Until these came along! These are the first diapers I reach for after they come out of the wash. I can't wait to buy more of these awesome diapers!

Visit their Facebook page or their shop. They have such unique and cute diapers. They have different colors of 'Shark Pups' so even girls can wear them. They also have really cute 'Pumpkin Butts' which are similar to the Shark Pups. They do amazing custom work too.

The winner of the giveaway will receive a Halloween glow in the dark diaper. The giveaway will close on the 23rd at midnight. The winner will have 24 hours to respond to an email to claim the prize (that way you can get it in time for Halloween). The email address that I will use to contact you is the email associated with your Facebook profile so make sure you check it and our Facebook page for updates.




*Rarpz recommends washing the glow in the dark diapers in cold water to help keep the glow in the dark intact with the fabric. I have been washing ours in warm for about a month and the glow in the dark is still intact.

  1. I havn't figured out what we will be for halloween. Im thinking i may incorporate a diaper into the outfit, but the weather has started to (finally) turn to the colder side...some days.

    I will have a newborn and a toddler and this will be his first year to actually trick or treat. I am thinking maybe i could make him an ems outfit like his dads(minus any scissors) as for the baby. I will be wearing him so i have to figure out how to incorporate our carrier. :)

  3. I love tropical Owlet, and not really dressing up for halloween here, although I might put Lil Miss 10months in something just for fun and take a photo that day :) Not sure yet though, she is a little bit little to 'dress up'

  4. I love the shark pups, and already have my name on the waiting list to get a couple.
    We wont be doing anything for halloween, unless we win this nappy, in which case we will just have to make sure he is wearing it that day, and hope that it is warm enough to show it off!

  13. Hmmm... well, my favorite seasonal diaper in their shop is the Pumpkin butts one, but for an everyday diaper I'd go for the cow spots one. :-)

  14. And as for Halloween, I just managed to come up with a costume for my 4-month-old today -- my neighbor gave me a glow-in-the-dark skeleton jumpsuit for him. Unfortunately I couldn't come up with any cute diaper ideas for him that didn't involve a whole lot of work and money, so a skeleton for him it is, and scrubs for myself (since of course, every doctor needs her own baby skeleton. Um. Yes. well anyway...).
