This is exciting to me because Mini Maestro sits at the top of my stash and the diaper my husband and mother request if they are left home with my son. My experience with the has been amazing. The feel, the fit and the usability is fabulous. This hook loop is not positioned to rub up against your babies delicate skin as many hook loop tend to do if your baby isn't just the right size. They have a trim fit for your older baby in their jeans. Having boys this is a huge factor for us. The elastic is inside the fleece around babies legs. No imprints left on chunky thighs. I loved my old insert. I can't wait to show you all the improvements.

Mini Maestros NEW! insert is 5 layers (bamboo / flannel / zorb / flannel / bamboo) 2 ounces dry comparing them to their older insert that is 3 layers (bamboo / zorb / bamboo) 2.05 ounces dry.
|#1 Older Insert|
|#2 New Insert|
Our first test will be slightly modified from our original science projects tests. Instead of dumping 4 ounces of water inside the cover with the insert stuffed we are going to test the inserts alone. Using a PlanetWise Sandwich size food storage bag and allowing no time for the water to absorb. Calling the older insert #1 and the newer insert #2.
#1 Insert left 5ml of water
#2 Insert left 3ml of water
Our second test is measuring how much water the insert holds after the wash.
Original weight vs. right out of the washing machine
#1 insert was 2.05 oz. dry. With wash it became 3.95 oz. That's is almost twice the weight of a dry insert.
#2 insert was 2 oz. dry. With the wash it became 3.50 oz. That's an entire 1.5 oz. gained.
Our next test is submerging the insert into 8 oz of water and measuring what is left after 5 minutes. We have to wait on the dryer now. ****
I had to do 12 oz. of water on each. The old #1 insert held all but 15 ml. The new #2 insert was all but 50ml. I can't wait to see after it's been washed another month or so since bamboo is more absorbant over time. Thanks you for this opportunity.
