Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop – Cozy Bums Diapers!

I am shamelessly biased, but I firmly believe that everyone should shop at Cozy Bums Diapers.  Cozy Bums Diapers has been my local retailer since I first started my cloth diapering journey back in 2010… and after a while, I bought so many diapers that Kerri, the owner, decided it was time to either hire me or cut me off.  And this year, Cozy Bums Diapers turns 9 years old!

Why Cozy Bums Diapers?

Cozy Bums Diapers has a fabulous selection of cloth diapers and accessories, along with competitive prices and a great rewards program.  You’ll find top brands at Cozy Bums like bumGenius, Flip, AppleCheeks, GroVia, and Best Bottom… along with more budget conscious brands like Imagine Baby.  We’ve also got a huge variety of wet bags, diaper liners, inserts, and other accessories.  Cozy Bums Diapers has one of the best selections of diapers and accessories in all of Canada.

But Cozy Bums diapers is more than just good diapers and good prices.  You’ll also get the benefit of experience: Kerri and I have both cloth diapered our children and have approximately ten years of children in cloth between the two of us.  We’re always willing to help troubleshoot and help you find the best diaper for your budget, your baby, and your style.   We’re proud to ship across Canada, and most Canadian brands to the United States.

Funky Fluff DeLUX Hemp/Bamboo Soakers

Every time Funky Fluff comes up with something new, I’m impressed.  So when Funky Fluff asked me about sending one of their new products for review, I jumped at the chance.  The Funky Fluff DeLUX hemp/bamboo soakers have exceeded their usual standards of awesome!

If you love natural fibers, then you’ve had times of waffling between bamboo or hemp.  Which one do you want to use?  There’s the super softness and trimness of bamboo, but the cost effectiveness and lack of processing required to make hemp fabric….  How does one ever choose?  The Funky Fluff DeLUX hemp/bamboo soakers mean that you don’t have to choose!  You can have both.

About the Funky Fluff deLUX Hemp/Bamboo Soakers

Funky Fluff deLUX Hemp/Bamboo soakers are designed with a two layer hemp pad and a two layer bamboo pad stitched together down the middle.  As always, this soaker has snaps so that you can snap it to the shell or snap two soaker shells together.  These soakers can be used on their own to replace an insert in any Funky Fluff system or as an additional soaker to help with overnight absorbency.

What’s Awesome about the Funky Fluff deLUX Hemp/Bamboo?

These inserts are, in a word, designed to be superior in every possible way.  The inserts are sewn together with two lines down the middle so that they’ll dry faster.  They’re quite trim.  In fact, the 2.0 bamboo inserts are just over 1 cm thick… while these new, super awesome hemp/bamboo inserts are less than 1 cm thick.  I actually took a picture of a diaper stuffed with the old bamboo and the new LUX hemp/bamboo.  There was a full centimeter of difference between the two.

What’s Not Awesome about the Funky Fluff deLUX Hemp/Bamboo?

While these inserts do dry faster than the old 2.0 bamboo inserts, they still take longer than some to dry.  They also can get a bit rumpled in the dryer.  (If you’re bothered by your inserts not being perfectly flat, this may be a source of irritation for you.)  And at $15.95 Canadian, they are a bit pricey (though you do get two inserts for that price: a small and a large).

In a Nutshell?

If you have a heavy wetter, this is a great option for you.  If you like your baby to wear skinny jeans, then this is a MUST for you!  I’m so crazy about this insert that I’m going to just buy Lux covers and get the new Funky Fluff deLUX inserts to stuff!

You’ll be able to stock up on these tomorrow at Cozy Bums and other Funky Fluff retailers!  But because Funky Fluff is awesome and loves their customers, you can enter to win THIS amazing package!

Simplee by Nuggles – A Canadian Delight

When Bethany from The Little Sprout asked me if I wanted to review the Simplee by Nuggles all-in-two, I was interested.  I’d heard of Nuggles and knew that it was Canadian.  Last year, I borrowed a cloth diapering friend with a newborn to review the Nuggles newborn diapers, so why not?  After all, it’s an opportunity to try something new and give an unbiased opinion!

I received the Simplee by Nuggles in Sirinity with a bamboo inner.  That suited me because lately, I’ve been all about making sure that Eudora feels the wet since we’re at that point where she’s ready to housebreak physically, even if she has no inclination to do so at this time.

Simplee by Nuggles Review - Cloth Diaper Addicts

About The Little Sprout

The Little Sprout is a small cloth diaper shop in Petawawa, Ontario run by the ever charming Bethany.  The Little Sprout carries a growing selection of cloth diapers, cloth diaper accessories, baby carriers, mama cloth, and more!  And for the discerning Canadian who wants to support Canadian companies, a large portion of her stock is either made in Canada or made by a Canadian owned business.

About Nuggles

Nuggles is a Canadian owned cloth diaper manufacturer who has their diapers made overseas.  The diapers were designed at a kitchen table in Canada by a mom who wanted the best solution for her baby.  Now the diapers are ethically made in China and are 100% CPSIA compliant.

About the Simplee by Nuggles

The Simplee by Nuggles all-in-two is designed to be used either as an all-in-two or as a pocket diaper.  The inner fabric is a bamboo and it includes two bamboo inserts that can be used individually or as a pair.  These inserts are designed to snap into the interior of the diaper as well.  If you stuff, snapping in the insert is optional and the inserts are designed to agitate out in the wash.  Additionally, there’s a strip of PUL in the front of the diaper to prevent wicking in the front. The Simplee also has a double gusset and a hip snap to prevent wing droop.  The rise is adjusted in in front with four levels of snap rise, giving five levels of height adjustment.  The Simplee by Nuggles is designed to fit from 8-40 pounds.

What I like about the Simplee by Nuggles

There’s really only one word that I have to describe the Simplee by Nuggles: trim.  I use both inserts on Eudora because she decides when she’d like a diaper change these days instead of me.  Even with both inserts, it’s still exceptionally trim.  Eudora is at the stage of having blessedly ploppable poo, but the double gussets would be fabulous at the runny poo stage.  If, however, you’re in the peanut butter poop stage, the double gussets aren’t of the obnoxious variety that are difficult to spray out since the second gusset is PUL.  Since I want Eudora to feel wetness, I love the bamboo interior of the Simplee.  I can realistically see the diaper fit up to 4o pounds, as Eudora is on the fourth row of rise snaps.  There’s still another rise for her to go, and she’s twenty-eight pounds.

While I use the Simplee by Nuggles as a pocket, the diaper is designed so that you may stuff it as a pocket or snap the inserts on top like an all-in-two.  The benefit to snapping, of course, is that it stays put.  Even better?  Nuggles has some gorgeous prints, some of which I’ve only seen on high end European diapers that are not readily available in North America.

nuggles-in-action

What I don’t like about the Simplee by Nuggles

Because of the bamboo, I find that it takes longer than I’d like to dry.  Bamboo inners are quite slow to dry on any diaper because of the nature of the fabric, though, so it’s not really a surprise.  Additionally, Eudora is a really light wetter and I still need to use two inserts for it to last several hours.  I suspect that a heavy wetter would require additional boosting.

In a nutshell?  If you’re looking for a light, adjustable diaper in a myriad of prints, the Simplee by Nuggles is a great option.

How to Get Simplee by Nuggles

If you’re in Canada, pay a visit to The Little Sprout and purchase a Simplee by Nuggles for your very own!  Or you can be REALLY lucky and win one for yourself.  The Little Sprout is giving away one in-stock Simplee by Nuggles to TWO lucky Canadians!

bumGenius Elemental Diaper – Favorite Things!

Welcome to the Favorite Things Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Cloth Diaper Revival.
Each blogger participating has a great cloth diaper prize for you to win, worth at least $20, so after you enter mine, be sure to hop around to all the others in the linky!  Don’t forget to enter to win one the GRAND PRIZE for the event!
FTG15
I had a really hard time figuring out my own favorite things for this event.  I have so many great brands that I love!  With that in mind, I decided that it was time to celebrate a new favorite: the bumGenius Elemental.
Prior to now, there were multiple reasons that the Elemental was not my favorite diaper.  The biggest reason was that it was a non-stay dry fabric… and Eudora has such sensitive skin that she needed to stay dry.  I bought the new bumGenius Elemental when it first came out, hated it, and set it aside for over a year.
Now?  Eudora is approaching three years old.  She’s ready to potty train from a biological standpoint, but isn’t particularly interested.  She wants to wear her “pwetty diapers” and will absolutely freak out when I put underwear on her.  Even though she’ll sit on the potty.  Even though she’ll sometimes let me know when she has to go before she goes.  So with that in mind?  I’ve decided that there will be no more stay dry fabrics against her bottom unless it’s time for overnights.  It means that I’m no longer stuffing my pockets and am laying a natural fiber insert on top.  And it means that natural fiber all-in-one diapers like the bumGenius Elemental have become more appealing than ever before.
Five Reasons bumGenius Elemental is one of my Favorite Things - Cloth Diaper Addicts

Why bumGenius Elemental is a New Fave

1.) bumGenius Elemental diapers are trim.

bumGenius Elemental diapers are, like, really trim.  It’s so trim that I’m in the market for a cheap body fat calipur or similar device so that I can pinch to measure the thickness of a bumGenius Elemental versus a disposable diaper.  Now that Eudora is at the age of pants having the adjustable elastic, I no longer require a big fluffy cloth diaper bum to hold her pants up… so a trim diaper under pants is so very nice!  And if you’ve got a normal sized child that you often have to upsize pants to cover that fluffy cloth diaper bum, the trimness of the bumGenius Elemental diaper may be enough to keep your little in pants that fit without being too long.

2.) bumGenius Elemental diapers are organic.

The absorbent portion of the bumGenius Elemental diaper is organic cotton.  As much as modern synthetics surround us, sometimes it’s nice to get back to the basics of natural, organic materials when caring for our children.

3.) bumGenius Elemental diapers are soft.

It’s pretty interesting.  Over time, some interiors get scratchier or less squishy.  With the cotton inners of bumGenius Elemental diapers, they just get softer and softer every time.  I hang them for an hour while things without PUL get dried on high in my dryer, then I throw them and everything else with PUL that’s still damp in on low.  I’m pretty crazy about how soft they manage to stay while still making sure that my daughter feels the wet.

4.) bumGenius Elemental diapers are US made.

I have some definite preferences for things being made in Canada and the US whenever possible.  I’ll even spend a bit more to do so because I like the knowledge that my shopping habits are creating jobs in the country of my birth or the country of my residence.  The American manufacture of bumGenius products is a definite selling point for me!

5.) bumGenius Elemental diapers are pretty.

I love the colors of the Cotton Babies line ups.  I think the prints of the Genius Series are usually pretty awesome.  bumGenius Elemental diapers offer all of the same solids and most of the same prints that we know and love.  With bumGenius Elemental diapers, I get to have every single thing that I currently want in a cloth diaper.  That’s why they’re now one of my favorite things!
