Review : Figohoney Pocket Diaper and Wet Bag

Once destroyed, the nature’s beauty cannot be repurchased at any price – Ansel Adams

Yes, and we need to be careful about our Mother Earth and try and use products that are eco-friendly. What are some eco-friendly products that one can use while raising a baby? I would say many. One among the many is cloth diapers.

Many brands have taken the initiative of helping moms raising their baby in a gentle and eco-friendly way. One such brand from the cloth diaper is Fig-O-Honey. I got my hands on their pocket diapers and here is my review for the same.

About the brand: 

Fig-O-Honey is a Bangalore based brand that makes eco-friendly cloth diapers in beautiful prints and vibrant colours and is quite a rage among new parents. It was started by Sneha Thakkar, who is an IIT Bombay alumni and worked as a data scientist for over a decade.

Sneha is a mommy to her two little cuties. So, Fig-O-Honey is a brand by a mom for the mom.

Brand claimed features: 

– Includes 1 cloth diaper + 1 absorbent insert
– Suitable for babies from 4.5 kg up to 15 kg
– Adjustable snap buttons for S/M/L sizes
– Waterproof, machine & hand washable, breathable
– Comfortable elastic on the leg sides
– Crossover snap buttons for smaller babies
– Hip snap buttons to prevent wing droop

Materials:

– Outer printed layer: Polyester with waterproof and breathable TPU
– Inner layer: Soft micro suede that wicks moisture away and keeps the baby’s bottom dry and is stain-resistant.
– Insert: Absorbent 3-layer microfiber

Price:

446INR

Where to Buy: 

Their website Fig-O-Honey

My experience: 

I have this personal love for cloth diapers. Love the cute bums that these diapers make with their quirky prints. I tried the map print from Fig-O-Honey and loved the print absolutely.

Pros:

  • It came in two pieces, 1 diaper and 1 insert.
  • The fit was snug and there was no leakage problem.
  • I prepped it with one wash with other clothes in the machine.
  • It soaked very well and worked for good three four hours for my 14 months old.
  • The insert material is buttery soft which gives a lot of comfort to him.
  • The cloth diapers micro suede material kept Mr. K dry and comfortable.
  • The insert and the diaper dried quickly after wash.
  • Reasonably priced.
I didn’t find any con in the product.

Fig-O-Honey Wet Bag

  • We tried the emoji print wet and dry bag and again loved the colour and print.
  • The fabric used is of high quality and keeps the smelly diapers well without any smell coming out.
  • It has two zips one for the wet diapers and one for dry.
  • It comes in quite a good size which helps especially when the baby is small and we have quite several wet diapers.
  • We have been using it as our swim bag too. So, this bag can be used in a lot of ways when not used as a wet bag.
  • It could have been priced a little less, but the quality is quite good, so I might as well pay for once.

My Conception News Story

click here Mr. K took good time to select us as his parents. Yes, we waited for 22 months before we could conceive this little man. 

While, I was going to the doctor and doing follow ups to conceive naturally, there was a time when the doctor said you may have to get a IVF or IUI. My husband and I were disheartened.  But we thought this way or that way, having a baby was more important. Since we had some trips and a wedding lined up, we thought we would start the process after we finish these.

 

But, God had drawn different map of life for us. I returned from my trips and had a strong feeling that I had conceived. My breasts were sore but the news was not definite. I missed my period. I was excited to check if I was pregnant. But I didn’t as I had failed and cried so many times before. More than me, my husband didn’t want me to check.

This girl wanted to dance in full swing in an event but what if I was pregnant. Its better to check and be safe.I did the home pregnancy test early morning and to my happiness, I saw two faint lines. I came back to my room and slept next to my husband and was thinking of different ways to share the news with him.

 

We woke up and got in to our normal routine. After bath, when he entered the room to change, I couldn’t control but showed him the pregnancy kit, and he didn’t follow a thing but asked me, “What? I had told you, don’t do the test, why did you bla bla bla..” I replied it shows too lines which means we have conceived and we were pregnant. He jumped with happiness, he danced for total 5 mins. I still remember the elation on his face.

 

The twist in the story comes now. We went to the doctor and told him, we had conceived and here is the pregnancy kit that shows it. The doctor asked us to repeat the test and the result came opposite, showing no pregnancy. In my heart, I was sure, the test at the doctor was wrong and that I have conceived but somewhere I was nervous. The doctor asked me to get the blood test done and told me he would call me if at all the report showed pregnancy.

 

I had my routine day. I didn’t have the time to check my phone, while I was at work. but as soon as I left from work and checked my phone, I saw a missed call from the doctor. With bated breath, I called the doctor and received the happy news, I was waiting for.

 

The much awaited phase had arrived in our lives bringing in loads of luv n joy . The feeling of parenthood is difficult to be pen down . It’s a joy that is cherished in your heart and the memories of that joy are always as fresh as a daisy. When we as parents become old n our children adult ; this experience when shared seems like a moment one has just experienced. This is God’s creation.
