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?



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.)

The Great Canadian Cloth Diaper Giveaway!

You could have this super awesome Charlie Banana diaper for your stash! See terms and conditions at the bottom of the Rafflecopter form

When you think of Canada, what do you think of?  Home?  Maple leaves?  Health care?  Hockey?  Tim Horton’s?

All of these things are distinctly Canadian.  So is this giveaway!  You can enter for a chance to win a Charlie Banana one size cloth diaper in Maple, a pair of I Heart Canada BabyLegs, and a $5 gift card to Tim Horton’s!

This diaper is completely awesome.  Your baby can be in style and show off Canadian pride with the maple leaf on his bum (not his butt; this is Canada!) and keep his legs warm in the winter coming up with I Heart Canada BabyLegs.  Even better, that Canadian pride will be in a Charlie Banana pocket diaper!

Charlie Banana pocket diapers are fantastic.  They are adjustable in the legs with an elastic instead of in the rise with snaps.  This leads to a cleaner looking diaper and less accidental adjustments.  The diaper also comes with two microfiber inserts (newborn size and infant size) so that you can have the right length insert for your baby’s size and even double stuff for extra protection on those heavy wetters when necessary.  Not only that, but Charlie Banana also sells disposable, biodegradable inserts so you can keep using your favorite diapers on the go.

The Maple pattern is a limited edition Charlie Banana print available only in Canada.  Did you miss your chance to get one from your cloth diaper store of choice?  No worries.  Now you can enter to win a Maple print Charlie banana of your very own.  All you need to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below and live in Canada ONLY.  But remember, the winner will be verified.  Good luck and have fun.  And while you’re at it, take a tour of Cloth Diaper Addicts and visit Cozy Bums, our sponsor.

*drool*  Not that I need to add to my cloth diaper stash…


Toddler Style – Norton Gets Canadian (Thanks, Charlie Banana!)

Everyone who has ever raised a toddler knows that toddler style can be rather… well, random.  Toddler style dictates that something may not need to be in season in order to be a favorite item.  Toddler style also dictates that color coordination is optional.

In the winter time, we tried and tried to get Norton to wear his hat.  It’s a hat with fur on the inside and ear flaps.  The only thing that screams “I am Canadian” more than that hat is a Molson beer commercial.
