I received product to facilitate this review. I give my honest opinions regardless.
Buttons has been around a few years now and has quickly become a very popular all-in-2 system. They offer inserts, covers, wipes, wet bags, pail liners, and disposable liners. You can check out their line-up here. I received a cover in Ahoy (which is a lovely dark blue) and microfiber and hemp daytime inserts. It’s very easy to see why these are so popular. They are of excellent quality and have enough absorbency even for heavy wetters.
Their covers have two layers of PUL and are currently only offered in snaps. The snaps for the inserts are on the inner layer of PUL, so they’re not visible on the outside. There are three rise settings and a single row of snaps with two snaps lined up on the wings and one cross-over snap. The cover has gussets, which I feel help get a good fit around the legs. Did I mention how lovely Ahoy is? It’s a really nice dark blue. My favorite color is the new Sea Breeze. Marina is a close second tied with Ahoy. There is elastic in the back and at the tummy, which helps with fit when you use the day and night inserts together. I do find that the covers seem to run small. Little Man is of average build and a little above 25 pounds and he’s on the highest rise setting with four snaps exposed. The fit of the microfiber and hemp inserts in the covers are very similar. In the pictures, Little Man has a hemp insert. These are also some of the most inexpensive covers I know of, selling for $11 for solids and $12.50 for prints. That is an excellent price for the quality.
There are two insert options: hemp/cotton (which is a recent addition) and microfiber. They both are contoured and come in a small and large size. You can buy both the day and night inserts. For nighttime, you simply snap the day insert onto the night one and then snap both in the cover. The inserts are very afforable as well. Daytime inserts $3.50 for the microfiber and $7.75 for the hemp. Nighttime doublers are a little more, $5.oo for microfiber and $9.75 for hemp. The prices are the same for the small and large inserts.
Buttons Diapers are excellent diapers. My ONLY concern is that they run small. Other than that, I really like them and definitely recommend them. I think the best thing is that you can purchase a deluxe package with almost everything that you would need to cloth diaper your baby from birth to potty training (or until they outgrow the covers) for $215 for a microfiber package and $331 for a hemp package. I would add a pail liner and another pack of flannel wipes to have everything you would need, but it’s still a great price. Overall Buttons Diapers are very high quality and extremely affordable. You have to check them out. You can follow them on Facebook.
