Daily Cute Fluffy Bum – Bottombumpers

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum - Bottombumpers (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Today’s cute fluffy bum has a happy little girl and a grumpy puppy.  (Okay, not really.  He was about to sneeze when I took the picture.)  Eudora is modeling a Bottombumpers One Size Side Snapping All-in-One diaper in Pink Dot.  Bottombumpers are made in the USA.

Best Cloth Diapers for Valentine’s Day

Cloth diapers are fun. Valentine’s Day can be fun. Dressing kids up in cloth diapers for valentines day is really fun. I’ve taken a look around the Internet to find the best cloth diapers for Valentine’s Day.

Choosing the Best Cloth Diapers for Valentine’s Day

There are tons of cloth diapers out there. I haven’t used all of these companies, but some of the cloth diapers are so darned cute that I really want to! If I haven’t used the company and am just squeeing over the sheer cuteness, I’ll say so.

Charlie Banana – The William and The Kate

In honor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding, Charlie Banana came out with a lovely diaper with hearts.  For the boy, there’s the William and for the girl, there’s the Kate.  Both have hearts on them, and are perfect for Valentine’s Day.  Plus, the diapers are cute and just plain work.

Bottombumpers – Red with White Polka Dots

Have you seen the new Bottombumpers line up that they announced at the ABC Show?  The red diaper with white polka dots just screams “Happy Valentine’s Day!”  As for the amazingness of the diaper, I’m still uncertain.  I have one, but I’m just not quite sure I get it.

Sunbaby HK Hearts

Sure, I’ve said in my review of Sunbaby diapers that you get what you pay for.  But Hello Kitty is super cute.  And Hello Kitty in hearts is even cuter.  On the bright side, if your Sunbaby diaper fails after a few weeks, at least you didn’t spend much on it.

Best Cloth Diapers for Valentines Day (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Little Britches with Unique Stitches – Snoopy

Ever since getting my first WAHM diaper from Diapers by Chris, I’ve become increasingly enamoured with the idea of shopping Etsy shops.  I haven’t tried anything from Little Britches with Unique Stitches, but the cuteness (and gender neutrality) of her Snoopy diaper has me considering it.  Nevermind the pink inner; no one will see that, anyway.

 

Best Cloth Diapers for Valentines Day - Conversation Hearts (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Simple Additions – Conversation Hearts

I typically don’t do covers because I mainly use things that already have the PUL in them.  However, this PUL cover in the adorable and ever so seasonal conversation hearts from Simple Additions has me ready to use my prefolds as diapers instead of as extra inserts for my super soaker son.  Really, what says Valentine’s Day more than conversation hearts with sweet little phrases?

 

 

Merry #FluffyXmas Spotlight – Lagoon Baby

Merry Fluffy XMas - Lagoon BabyWhen it comes to buying cloth diapers, I love to experiment.  I love to try different brands and different styles.  When it comes to where I buy cloth diapers, I don’t do much experimenting.  I have a few trusted stores that I shop with and very rarely shop anywhere else.  Lagoon Baby is making it onto that “trusted store” list.  There are a few reasons that I love Lagoon Baby and encourage others to shop there.

Lagoon Baby is Proudly Canadian

I like to keep my Canadian dollars in Canada as much as possible.  Buying from a Canadian business that stocks a lot of Canadian brands is just awesome.  What better way to improve the national economy than to stick to Canadian stuff as much as possible?  (Plus, I know that stuff that’s made in Canada is made in humane conditions due to the labor laws that this country has, and I know that workers are generally paid a liveable wage because of those same laws.)  Since Lagoon Baby is located in Maple Ridge, BC, I know that I’m doing just that.  Plus, shipping is pretty quick for me since I’m still in British Columbia.

Lagoon Baby is a WAHM Business

I’ve done my time as a work at home mom.  I love being able to support other moms who work from home and stay with their babies.  More to the point, I love being able to support work at home mom businesses that are truly ethical businesses instead of a rebranding business.

Lagoon Baby is Friendly

Natalie is pretty friendly to interact with over Facebook and Twitter.  She’s quick to answer and is always willing to look for answers if she doesn’t have one.

Lagoon Baby Provides Options

Lagoon Baby’s store has some fantastic options that are not common in my city.  She carries Bottombumpers, Blueberry, Peachy Green, Funky Fluff, and some other diapers that are on my wish list.  Her stock is growing and changing all the time!

New Cloth Diaper Designs at the ABC Expo!

For the last two years, I’ve watched the news of cloth diaper designs come out from the ABC Expo with baited breath.  I’d really, really love to go to the next one and see the fun and excitement (and blog about it on the spot from my iPhone) in person.  Now that we’re a few days into the release of the new cloth diaper patterns, I’ve seen new release announcements from GroVia, Best Bottom, Rumparooz, Charlie Banana, Apple Cheeks, Bottombumpers, and Blueberry/Swaddlebees.

GroVia: GroVia isn’t just releasing patterns this year.  They’re releasing a host of new products, including the Bamboo prefold.  (I was lucky enough to be one of the testers, so you can see the prefold and my review.)
