Daily Cute Fluffy Bum – What’s that Brand?

Daily Cute Fluffy BumSometimes, a WAHM diaper doesn’t have a label.  Knowing what I know now, it’s often a sign that it’s a newer WAHM shop.

In this throwback pic of Eudora, she’s wearing our first hybrid fitted diaper ever.  I have no clue who made it, but goodness gracious, I still love the colors on that diaper.

Ella Bella Bum Review (CLOSED)

 

About Ella Bella Bum

Ella Bella Bum is a WAHM diaper shop based out of Ontario and run by the talented Sam Campbell.  Her diapers are prized possessions that are often sold out within minutes at each stocking.  (Or stalking.)  She makes beautiful works of art with hybrid fitted diapers, scrappies, wraparounds, half and half, and solid PUL prints.  Lately, she’s been moving into making diapers with embellished tabs, detachable ruffles, and appliques or embroideries on the bum.  Her super highly sought after diapers hold their value quite well in the BST groups, largely because each print is limited… and they hold up quite well.

Her pocket diapers are now made with athletic wicking jersey inners.  Her hybrid fitteds are a cute outer with a cotton velour inner and squishy goodness. [Read more…]

Butt-Ons Hybrid Fitted Diaper Review

I’m thrilled to introduce you to a WAHM cloth diaper maker in Ontario: Butt-Ons!  In order to facilitate this review, I was sent a Butt-Ons hybrid fitted cloth diaper.

Butt-Ons Hybrid Fitted Diaper Construction

My Butt-Ons hybrid fitted diaper is a squishy grey/purple brocade outer with a soft, colorful plush cotton velour inner.  The soaker is a separate, floating insert with no attachments.  The top is the same fluffy pink as the inner with bamboo underneath.  There are three snaps per side with cross over options on the outer, and the rise is snap down.  The diaper has a hidden layer of fleece to make it a hybrid fitted, so it’s water-resistant, but not waterproof.  For daytime around the house, it’s perfectly fine to use the diaper without a cover and then change when the outer feels damp.  For naptimes and outings, it’s recommended to cover the diaper.

What’s Awesome About the Butt-Ons Hybrid Fitted Diaper

Quite simply, my Butt-Ons hybrid fitted diaper is just plain beautiful.  The brocade outer is beautiful with a lovely texture.  Unlike a lot of brocades, it’s not at all scratchy.  It’s a soft outer with an interesting texture from the brocading.  The snaps have something different that I have never, ever seen: matte snaps.  That’s a nice little detail that just looks absolutely beautiful.  The softness of the bright pink variegated inner is a gorgeous contrast to the grey/purple outer.

Then there’s the craftsmanship: I’m pretty happy.  The stitching is neat and clean, and it looks like she used a nice quilting thread to sew.  The snaps are perfectly spaced.  The elastics on the Butt-Ons hybrid fitted diaper are very interesting.  The space for the elastics is wider than most diapers, but that’s because my Butt-Ons hybrid fitted diaper is made with 3/8 inch elastic instead of the standard 1/4 inch.  The tabs are rounded, which I’ve decided I actually prefer for crossover snaps.  The extra width of the channels for the elastics is an advantage when it’s time to replace them (because, let’s be realistic, if you use a diaper for multiple children, it should be expected to have to eventually replace elastics).  The softer edges of a rounded curve are (in my humble opinion, of course) a lot more aesthetically pleasing than a square when crossed.

Hannah and her sister also stand behind their product: the snaps and seams are guaranteed for thirty days: if anything goes wrong, mail it back and they’ll repair it and send it back to you free of charge.

I can’t forget the fit: it fits my little Eudora like it was made for her.  For a hybrid fitted diaper, I think it’s quite trim.  I suspect that’s because of the soaker being a floating pad instead of snapped into place.

Butt-Ons Hybrid Fitted Diaper Review (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Butt-Ons Hybrid Fitted Diaper Downers

As much as I really love the diaper itself, the only grumble I have is the soaker.  I don’t care for how the ends are finished: one end started to fray a bit after I’d washed it, like the seam had slipped from the stitching.  However, that’s just me being nitpicky.  The soaker still works perfectly well, and it’s not like it’s actually seen.  Then there are the elastics: because the channels for the elastics are so wide, the fabric can look bunchy when it’s not on the baby.  But once that diaper is on my princess, it looks like it was made with her measurements.  The benefits of that extra wide channel definitely outweigh the negatives.

In A Nutshell?

I’d totally buy another diaper from Butt-Ons.  In fact, there’s a pretty little paisley in her album that has caught my attention.

Diapers by Chris Hybrid Fitted Review

I’m pretty biased, but it just so happens that I think my prize is the best.  I’ve partnered up with Diapers by Chris to offer a hybrid fitted diaper!  Until recently, I did not understand the hype around a hybrid fitted diaper.  It’s not waterproof… so how on earth could I let my Eudora run around the house without a cover?  And what’s the point of having a beautiful diaper if you just have to cover it up anyway?
