Wee Magee Pocket Diaper Review

Wee Magee Pocket Diaper Review

I received this product free for review. All opinions remain my own.

Cub’s worn a lot of diapers. He doesn’t really care what diaper I put on him… unless he spies his Wee Magee. Then, he wants the “Hulk” diaper. How he developed a fascination with Hulk is a bit of a mystery, knowing him only as a character on a ball I bought him last summer featuring a mishmash of Marvel characters. Regardless, he knows who Hulk is, and this is his Hulk diaper. And when he wears it, he tries to find Hulk. (And secondly, Spiderman.)

Wee Magee Pocket Diaper ReviewAmber at Wee Magee’s diaper design merges a lot of features I’ve seen on other WAHM and big-name brands in a combination that I have yet to see:

  • A tummy elastic;
  • Athletic wicking jersey interior;
  • Crossover snaps for tiny tummies;
  • Somewhat ruffly elastic casing at the legs;
  • Wrap around cotton print with matching PUL.

Wee Magee Pocket Diaper Review

Wee Magee’s diapers do not come with an insert, which is fine by me as I like to choose my own inserts anyway. I’ve really liked using my Thirsties size 2 hemp prefold in it, folded almost in four. We can rock that for a good long while (I think we did 5 hours, since he fell asleep for a nap before I could change him).

2014-12-02 11.49.50What I love about our Wee Magee:

  • The tummy elastic is great for tummy sleepers;
  • Athletic wicking jersey is my favourite stay-dry fabric, and I love how our diaper’s interior is Hulk green;
  • The pocket opening is at the back;
  • The cross-over snaps will allow for a nice fit around a tiny waist;
  • The fit is very roomy and comfortable on my very big Cub.

What I love less about our Wee Magee:

  • The pocket is very narrow, so it can be awkward to stuff;
  • Some of the finishing is imperfect, though it’s purely aesthetic and doesn’t impact function;
  • The casing around the leg elastics is a bit bulky: it’s almost like ruffles, so good for keeping in big messes, but not quite my favourite “look;”
  • The rise snaps are curiously low on the diaper, and it seems like this makes the leg opening quite large even on the lowest rise: I am not confident this diaper would fit well on new baby chicken legs. Amber does make a newborn diaper that fits 4-12 lbs.

Although not related to the diaper itself, I wanted to give Amber a shoutout for what I think is really good branding for a newbie WAHM-diaper maker! I love her logo and the way the package arrived:

    I love that it’s by a wahm! The “Hulk” diaper as your lil one puts it is absolutely adorable!

  62. Crunchy Con Mommy

    Oooh my sons would love it if we got a Hulk diaper! I think we are cool with almost ruffley elastic if we get superheroes 😉

  63. Katy Baird

    I have been hesitant to try the athletic wicking material- I have no idea why. So I guess I’d love to give it a go!

  64. Kimert

    I haven’t tried a diaper with the athletic wicking material and would be curious to see how it works. I do love diapers with tummy elastics though! I find it makes a big different to fit!

    I love the look of the diaper. The cut is different from what I normally see!

  70. abedabun dawn

  71. Kate Edkin

    I love trying new diapers, and these look super cute!

  72. Barb Borntreger

    I would LOVE to try this diaper! So adorable.

  73. Mara Davenport

    I like the tummy elastic and the athletic wicking material. I have some diapers that use that material and they are currently my favorite so I would love to try other brands that use it!!!

  74. Lucy Smith

    I love that she will work with you to get the right fit (changing snaps, or wider) that’s so etching you don’t get with other companies.

  75. Marina Loredo

    Super heroes are a definite favorite in this geeky household. Athletic Jersey is great for rinse offs when poops happen!

  76. faith

    I would love to try this diaper, and i love the super hero print!

  77. Candace ʚïɞ Suarez

    Cute, I’d love to try!

  78. Steel Springs

    Cute print! I like the idea of the wicking material and stomach elastic. I do wonder how the leg elastic would fit on my child. We’ve had trouble with the fit of some other pocket diapers.

  79. Karen Waldorf

    Oh my what cute designs! I’ve never tried a diaper with the athletic wicking material, would love to see how that compares with the typical microfleece/suedecloth.

  80. Emily

    love that they are jersey, and cute prints!

  81. Kristen Varner

    I love all the different prints.

  82. Theresa Hover

    She uses such cute fabrics! I love when I can support a WAHM by buying cloth diapers 🙂

  83. Jen E

    Such a cute print, and thank you for your honest review. I love seeing pros and cons of different diapers.

  84. Claire Rheinheimer

    How awesome that she customizes the diapers for each person! My daughter is pretty little, sometimes one size just don’t fit her right.

  85. Rachel

    This is a new brand to me but the tummy elastic looks great!

  86. Cowgirl America

    I love the idea of tummy elastic! DS doesn’t usually sleep on hus rummy but when he does he always soaks through!

  87. Beth R

    I love the athletic wicking material. I am definitely interested in trying this one out. Love the prints

  88. Kelly Urban

    I like the athletic jersey fabric It’s different.

  89. I love that print. I think that this would be both my husband and my favorite print. I did not know that the athletic jersey fabric was good at wicking moisture, but it makes sense, I just learned something new.

  90. Tiffanie Nieves

    Loving these prints! The only diaper covers I’ve tried with elastic at the tummy ran too small for my little one. When they did fit I loved them. Would love to try this brand

  91. Cassandra Rae

    These look simialr to EBB which i have been wanting to try. I like that they are narrow since Hannahs so petite. Awesome review. Cub is such a sweetie! He rocks all the diapers !

  92. RJ

    These diapers look really durable. (and of course cute)

  93. Candice Balser

    As soon as the page loaded, I was in love with the print on this diaper! And as I continued to scroll, while reading the review, I fell in love even more with the green interior. 🙂 I know there are some “cons” to this diaper that you listed, but I’d still love to give it a try. I’d be one super giddy mommy if I won this for my boy! 😀

  94. Lindsay Jackson

    Such adorable diapers! The colors are so bright! Love!!

  95. Samantha L.

    I love all the colors! I actually like that these come without inserts, since there are so many options available now.

  96. Delia Jones

    I like the look of the diaper. I am new to one sized diapers & I am curious as to how it would fit my babe. I make chunky long kids.

  97. Gladys Aguilar

    My husband would want to put this diaper on my son everyday lol

  98. dianna anderson

    I would love to try this brand out for myself

  99. katheirne d

    haha love your honesty about the “ruffle” butt

  100. Anna W

    These look really cute, I like how she will customize diapers for the customers.

  101. Jacquelyn Matties

    These look so cute.

  102. Brianne Archer

    I might be anxious to use these if the leg openings are a problem, my little one is only seven weeks and that’s where all her leaks have been so far with other diapers. But maybe she just needs to grow into them.

    1. Lindsay Gallimore

      I’ve seen some pictures of great fit on newborns, so who knows! Also, Samantha can customize her diapers to be smaller if necessary!

  103. Nicole U

    I like the tummy elastic feature.

  104. Randi S

    How fun!! I love the Frozen diaper!!

  105. Stephanie O’Day

  113. nikki

    I haven’t tried a diaper with tummy elastic yet, I imagine it creates a great fit.

  114. Katrina Phelan

    It looks like a beautifully made diaper and I really think I would like the wide elastic at the legs. I’ve never had a diaper with jersey interior but anxious to try it out. 🙂

  115. Sarah Hayes

    i love the prints and how well made they are

  116. Raina Hood

    The crossover snaps for the tiny tummy is a definite plus for us. I would love one of these for our little guy. Thanks:)

    Love the prints and the attention to detail!

  118. Erin Lehman

    I really like that it doesn’t come with inserts, because I prefer using prefolds/flats anyway! Looks like a great diaper to add to the stash we’re building!

  119. Hannah Givler

    I LOVE the super hero print on this diaper! As a family of nerds this would be the perfect addition to the stash we are starting for baby boy (due end of April)

  126. barnolds barnes

    I like that the interior is wicking–my son had a lot of trouble with wetness touching his skin.

  127. Wendy Mastin
