Cloth Diaper Giveaway!!!

YEA!!! It's time for a cloth diaper review and giveaway!!! I am so excited, and hope you are too, because this is an awesome diaper!

Most of you know I am addicted to cloth diapering, and have used them for both my girls. I started to save money, but now being better for the environment is a major reason that I love it! I have been through all the ups and downs of learning to use cloth diapers, and love trying all different kinds and styles on my search for the "Perfect" cloth diaper.

When I was buying more diapers to use with my second daughter, I met Kellie from Ecobuns, and was blown away by everything they offered and how helpful she was in answering all my questions and explaining everything to me. You can visit Ecobuns online store, or if you live in West Michigan you can shop at there new store opening up soon. They have everything you could need for cloth diapering and even slings, nursing necklaces, and so much more. She even offers free classes on cloth diapering!
Ecobuns let me try a Thirsties Duo Diaper to review. This diaper comes in two adjustable sizes, one for 6-18 pounds, and the other for 18-40 pounds. So you can diaper from birth to potty training with only two different sizes! Each diaper has three rows of snaps so you can adjust them to fit perfectly as your baby grows.

It also comes with two inserts, a microfiber and a hemp, that snap together so they stay stuffed nicely. This worked very well, I love having a bottom layer of hemp, it really absorbs amazing! Another thing that helps this diaper not leak is the leg gussets on the sides, they make a huge difference and is one of the only diapers I have used with these, it fits much snugger.
It is a very trim diaper, which I love because it fits under my 4 month olds cloths pretty well to size. Most of the time her diaper booty is so bulky I have to dress her in a size up. Another plus is that you don't have to pull out the inserts to wash this diaper, they will agitate out on there own! It's SO nice, major plus here! I love anything that makes washing quicker and easier!


One of the only things I didn't like about this diaper is that when using the snaps in the front to size it, the middle on the diaper pulls down a little bit making a gap in the front. Other than that, I have had no problems with it, and no leaks!! I find my self saving this diaper for when we are going somewhere or when I want my daughter to wear a cute outfit without a huge diaper booty. It is very reliable, and one of my new favorites. It also comes in fun colors!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I am currently using cloth diapers for about 3 months now. One thing I love is the fact that they really are not that hard to care for and wash. I keep a wet pail next to the toilet for using after I use the diaper sprayer on the dirty diapers. Then I keep a dry pail in the nursery closet for the wet ones. Really whats one more load of laundry a week ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Welll I visit the Ecobuns site and store quite frequently :) But after your review I would have to say I would want to try this thirsties duowrap diaper mostly because It is "trimmer" I at home have the bumgenius one size, happy heinys pocket and some thirsties covers with prefolds and I love them all for different reasons :)

  92. I love cloth diapering because it's a sustainable, earth friendly, baby friendly way to diaper. I love cloth booties, and knowing I am doing the best for my baby makes me happy! I thought cloth diapering would be overwhelming but I actually stay more on top of the laundry since starting to cloth diaper. Funny thing that is :-)
