On a monthly basis, I experience all types of diapers. Sometimes we’re looking at incredibly luxurious plastic-free solutions like the Lunapaca wool cover, and other day’s we are taking a look at pocket diaper. Today’s review is a look at the Twisted Mystic Tushies pocket cloth diaper.
Now, I know I don’t have kids in diapers, but that’s not the point of this blog review. If you want that experience, go find another review. Today, we are looking at the features of this product, why you might like it, and who it might be for from the perspective of a human who has seen it all.
Yes, for the lack of better words – the Twisted Mystic Tushies diaper is just another pocket diaper. The magic of another pocket diaper is finding brands that connect with new audiences of passionate parents curious about cloth diapering. I love seeing more brands emerge as it’s a way for women to provide for themselves while advocating for something they love – and the pay is probably as meagre as the affiliate income I earn from the occasional Amazon purchase. *yikes.
I did receive this diaper for free, and we’re going to share the story of Twisted Mystic Tushies on the podcast later this year. But my reviews are just that, my review thoughts, and opinions to inspire you to consider the products you are curious about.

Review of the Twisted Mystic Tushies Pocket Diaper Diaper
This is a pocket diaper – in my stash it most resembles the Stout House Pocket Diaper, but it’s a little more narrow. I sent my Stout House to a local mama to experience on her chunky son, and she’s loving it – likely would have the same experience with this diaper. It’s longer and skinnier than some classic pockets like the Imagine Baby and the first version of Earth & Pebble.
Quality wise, this diaper rides the budget/affordable line. It’s not as luxurious and high quality as other brands, but it’s not advertised to be that type of product. It’s an appropriate quality for it’s price point.
I like the sizing but I also don’t. I have mixed feelings about this push towards extended sizing and it won’t work for all babies. In trying to be inclusive, we also leave gaps in the industry which is okay to acknowledge. If you need a smaller fitting diaper, then consider a Designer Bums or Eco Naps product. Those are exceptional for the tiny baby club.
Coloured inners make me smile because it reduces the stress over staining – staining happens, but after years in this industry it’s hard to convince some groups of people to let that go. But, the more that I chat with some industry leaders the more I begin to question wicking jersey. I used to love wicking jersey, but I’m beginning to hear that it can hold onto smells and poop just as much as suede and fleece. How has your wicking jersey experience played out?
Recommendation of the Mystic Twisted Tushies Diaper
If you love the prints and you love a larger fitting pocket diaper, then this is a product to try.
I would love to know your experiences and can’t wait to share this brand story on the podcast in a few weeks.
