Hip Huggers Review

I have been testing out this new diaper from Hip Huggers. It it a charcoal bamboo one size pocket diaper. Charcoal bamboo is becoming very popular recently and for good reason too. Bamboo charcoal is extremely absorbent and thin. (You can read more about it here.) The inside of the diaper is also made of the charcoal bamboo. It helps wick away moisture and keep your baby dry. The leg gussets are wonderful! They have contained several messes. 

Here is my chunky monkey. She is 9 months old and is over 20 pounds. (I think. I actually have no idea how much she weighs but she's a chunker. I will try to get her weighed shortly and update this.) She is on the middle snap so there's still plenty of room to grow.

I told you she was chunky! 

Here is my niece with the same diaper. She is a super small baby. She is 6 months old and very skinny. You can see how trim it is even on a small baby.

I am loving this diaper. Many of you know I am not a huge fan of pocket diapers, but I am really enjoying this diaper! The charcoal bamboo is very absorbent! When you first get the diaper, I would recommend washing it a few times before using it. I have found that washing at least two or three times makes the insert more absorbent. The more you wash the insert, the more absorbent it will become. You can also boil the insert (Insert ONLY!) for a little bit before throwing it in the wash that way you don't have to wash more than once. Another thing I really enjoy about charcoal bamboo is no stains : ) Everything washes off easily and since the fabric is dark, it doesn't tend to stain like white fabric.

Hip Huggers Cloth Diapers has a big variety of products. They have the diapers but they also carry wet bags, panty liners, breast pads, and even these adorable key chains! They also do custom diapers and they are SO cute! You can see them here. I know that you will fall in love with these diapers! Go show them some love on their page.
