Tweedle Bugs Diaper Review

Never heard of Tweedle Bugs? Don’t be alarmed. I hadn’t either. I came across them by chance one day and just HAD to give them a try! They were so much cheaper than anything I’d ever seen! ($12.95 a diaper!) These are one size pocket diapers that are cheap! For $12.95 I got the black diaper seen above, a Tweedle Bugs insert, and a doubler.

The interior is a fleece. It reminds me of Fuzzi Bunz fleece interior. They have a pocket opening in the front and back, so like Smartipants, you don’t have to unstuff them. They unstuff in the wash. (Which is a great feature!) The Tweedle Bugs insert is almost identical to a bumGenius insert.  The exterior is more nylon feeling and looking. It has no stretch to it as some PULs do.  They only come in a snap version, which you all know is a-okay with me!

Shown above with a Blueberry Deluxe to show size. The Tweedle Bug is a similar style to the Blueberry Deluxe and Econappi, but is slightly smaller. This means that this diaper fits smaller than the Blueberry. Realistically, it would fit an 8 lb. baby up to a 35 lb. toddler. (These do fit Imogene, 38 lbs., on the largest setting.) These diapers have some awesome elastic in them. It is super springy, but gentle. So, you can get a good fit without irritating fat thighs.

These are made a bit wider than other diapers. The rise is shorter than a Blueberry, but the width is the same. If your babies are long things, then this may not be a good choice. (Try Haute Pockets or WAHMies.) If you have round babies like I do, you may find the wider top makes it fit those chunky thighs so much better.


The pocket openings do gape a bit. It isn’t a use issue, just a visual one. You also have to make sure the insert isn’t sticking out the front on the smaller sizes. I have never had the insert work its way out while in use.

Do I recommend these diapers? Absolutely! If you want a cheap one size pocket diaper that works, you’ll love this diaper. It does have a limited size/shape range, so if you’ve got an oddly shaped or proportioned little one, you may want to take that into consideration. But overall, I would recommend these over their pricey counterparts any day! I am very happy with these and would happily buy more!

Like the price but need more of a size range? Try Smartipants. Looking for another fleece interior diaper with snaps? Try Haute Pockets.

    How has this held up in the wash and how long have you had it? I once got a cheaper diaper that I thought was great until a few weeks in.

      I hold off on reviewing any diaper until I have had it for at least 100 uses. (a little over 3 months with my wash and use schedule) It has held up well. The inner fleece has pilled a bit, but in my experience, all fleece pills with use. So, so far so good with these!

    Oh my goodness! I just tried Tweedlebugs too! They’re so great for the price! I have some Smartipants which are the only diaper of comparable price and I don’t like them, but I love tweedlebugs–better than some of my pricey-er diapers like bumGenius and Rocky Moutain to name a few!
