Where It All Began . . .
There are a LOT of cloth diapers on the market, but there is only ONE of your baby. How are you supposed to know which cloth diaper will best suit their needs?
This was the question Tara Porter asked herself in 2011, when the diapers everyone was recommending weren’t working well on her child who was not only very skinny, but also a heavy wetter (a combination of features that she would later find required special solutions).
The answer to the question lay in Tara’s background in survey design and statistics. Combining her love for analyzing data with her enthusiasm for cloth diapering, Tara created Padded Tush Stats.
What We Do
At Padded Tush Stats, we understand that diapers work differently on all babies. Your baby’s body type (skinny waist? chunky thighs?) and particular needs (rash prone? heavy wetter?) will influence how well a diaper fits and performs on them. With the help of parents who have already used the diapers on their baby, we can compile statistics based on their experiences and help other families find the diapers that will best suit their baby’s needs or body type.
We are also a large resource of information on all things cloth diapering: we have tables where people can pick the detergent that would work best for their washing machine type and water conditions, a searchable database where people can find the best deal out there on the diaper they are looking for, as well as an abundance of articles on cloth diapering and hundreds of reviews of cloth diapers and related products.
How We Do It
Writing honest and thorough reviews is important to us.
If a company sends us a product, it does not influence our review. We feel it is imperative to discuss not only the things we like about a diaper, but also any potential weaknesses in the quality, performance, or design of the product (though we do try to do so respectfully). If we rave about a diaper, you’ll know it’s because we truly loved it (and not because we felt obligated to say something nice about it!).
We also believe it is important to be as absolutely thorough as possible, using the diapers in different conditions and working with the retailer or manufacturer to troubleshoot any problems that arise. Our reviews might take longer to be published, but we feel confident when we give you our opinions that you’re getting the most accurate and complete picture of the product possible.
Our goal is to give you the best possible odds that the product you purchase will meet both your needs and expectations, so we take our review process seriously. For more information, you can read our Product Review Guidelines or What Goes Into A PTS Review.
