GroVia O.N.E. All in One Review and *Giveaway*!

On the largest and the smallest settings. 
Meet GroVia's new diaper, O.N.E. It is an all in one and the really cool features of this diaper include super absorbent materials, your choice of either snaps or velcro in ONE diaper. Yes you heard it right! There is a velcro strip you can attach to the front snaps to turn it into a velcro diaper. How awesome is that? So you prefer snaps and your babysitter or significant other likes velcro, well now you can both enjoy this diaper.

The diaper fits from about 10-35 pounds. It's pretty tight on my chunky 1 year old but it still fits pretty well with a little room to grow. The diaper doesn't need to be prepped like their other diapers and inserts. It comes with two inserts. One is smaller (the booster) and is great for using on smaller babies or kids who don't produce a lot of urine. Use both inserts together and it's great for heavy wetters or even for night time!

I have been using this diaper for the past few weeks and I am really loving it. It has been lasting my heavy wetter for hours. I wish I would have gotten a few more because I love it! The velcro strip is so strong. Sometimes it's hard to pull off which is great. Just means it will last longer and better than  lot of other brands. The only downside is that it's a little bulky when using both inserts but I don't mind and the baby doesn't seem to mind either. They are planned to be released May 11th.  

 Look how adorable it is with the matching onesie! Want to win one for your baby? Head over to our Facebook page and enter to win. Good luck!

Gamin Project Review and *Giveaway*

Look how adorable they are packaged up! 
I heard about Gamin Projects and the amazing thing they do and was so excited to review their diapers. For every diaper sold, they donate a diaper to an orphan in an underprivileged country. How awesome is that? You can read more about their mission and the orphanage that they donate to here.

They make one size, hybrid, fitted diapers. The outside is made of adorable knit fabrics. They have some of the cutest prints I've seen. The inside of the shell is made of super soft organic bamboo velour with a layer of organic bamboo fleece sandwiched inside the two layers making it extra absorbent.

The soaker snaps into the shell and is made of organic bamboo fleece and topped with the squishy soft velour. It has a fold down rise making it a one size diaper (similar to other popular brands of fitted diapers like Goodmama).

I tested the diaper out on my chunky 16 month old. I'm guessing she weighs around 25 pounds. The fit was great. I put it on her without folding down the rise. It was a pretty trim diaper and was very absorbent. I've tried a few other brands of fitteds and they do not compare to Gamin Projects diapers. With other diapers, I can feel the outside of the diaper damp or wet after just an hour or sooner. After an hour in these diapers, the outside was still dry. I tried to always test the diaper out for nap times and they always held up great. (With a cover on.) My daughter takes longer naps and we never had a leak in these diapers.

 It's blurry but look how trim it is! 

So trim and adorable! 
I am loving these diapers. I am pretty amazed at how absorbent they are even though they are so trim. They are very well made and are holding up beautifully in the wash. Their diapers are $28.99 which is a fantastic price for a unique, adorable, and even organic diaper. (Most fitted diapers will cost the same or even more.) Want to win one? Enter our giveaway here for your chance to win a free gender neutral diaper! Giveaway will end Friday the 27th at 11:59pm. The winner will have 72 hours to reply to my email before I pick a new winner. Good luck everyone!

Q & Lu Cloth Diaper Review

I was asked to review Q & Lu's pocket diaper. I received a size 2 pocket diaper (which is meant for taller, chunkier babies). She makes 4 different sizes so you get the best fit possible for your baby. The outside of the diaper is PUL which makes them waterproof. The inside of the diaper is soft microfleece which helps wick moisture away from the baby.

 The diaper on the biggest rise setting. 

 The inside of the diaper. You can see there is a pocket opening in the back of the diaper. 

The diaper on the smallest rise setting. 

There are 3 snaps on each of the tabs (see picture below). The top two snaps are male snaps and the bottom is a female snap. It's a little different than most diapers but I actually liked this feature a lot. 

 I used this diaper with a few different inserts and the results were the same. We loved this diaper! We never had any leaks. In these pictures, it is stuffed with a charcoal bamboo insert. The diaper is pretty trim no matter what insert you are using.

My baby is pretty chunky. She is about 23 pounds (or more) at 11 months old. She is on the medium snap rise, as you can see in the picture. The fit is great! The diaper is adorable and affordable.

You can find her Facebook page here. You can also see some of the other adorable diapers she's made here. She also makes fleece covers, nursing pads, and more. Go show her some love and check out everything she has to offer.

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.
