I have a wide variety of diapers in my cloth diaper stash. AMP diapers are among them. Recently, I saw a mom ask which is “better,” AMP or Ella Bella Bum. I have and love both, and there’s no comparing the two of them. Really, it’s like apples and oranges.
I can easily itemize why I love my AMP diapers.
1.) I love AMP diapers for color coordination
When it comes to coordinating my daughter’s outfits with her diapers, AMP diapers are one of my favorite choices. They have a plethora of solid colors. Solid colors are the easiest to coordinate.
2.) AMP diapers stay in print longer
There’s another Canadian brand that I love but won’t name here. They come out with a new color and retire another every six months. AMP diapers have a longer time before discontinuation, so that means that they are easier to find without breaking the bank.
3.) AMP diapers are made in Canada
I have a preference for products made in North America. Yes, a large part of it is because I prefer to support the economies of either the country of my birth or the country of my choice. But when I choose a diaper made in Canada, I know that the diaper is made ethically and will adhere to manufacturing standards for both the product and the employee.
4.) AMP diapers has great customer service
If you have an issue, AMP will be right there to support. They’re a great, small company that has not grown too fast for their own health. They still retain the values that have made them a great diaper to use over several years.
5.) If you are looking for a “HTF” color from another brand, AMP may have it
Sometimes when people are looking for a hard to find color, they are looking for it for collection. Other times, they are looking for it because it’s just plain beautiful. I love navy blue right now. It’s in season and is perfect with the contrasting blues, whites, and reds of the nautical look. I could either kill myself trying to find a long discontinued AppleCheeks color and spend a fortune with collectors, or I can go to Cozy Bums and buy a brand new AMP diaper in Navy. This holds true for multiple colors in multiple brands. (This does not mean that AMP is lifting colors; there are multiple brands that have the exact same colors. It just means that AMP keeps them in print often longer than other brands. See reason #2.)
6.) AMP inserts are AMAZING!
I am truly in love with AMP hemp inserts. The three layer works well overnight for Eudora, the lightest wetter this side of the Canadian border. The two layer is my new favorite insert to use in multiple brands. In fact, I love them so much that they will get their own blog post soon.
Have you used AMP diapers? Did you love them as much as I do?
