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?

Isn’t this gorgeous? It’s going to be a diaper!

Until I got my WAHM cloth diaper from Diapers by Chris, I’d never tried a WAHM cloth diaper.  Sure, there were some cute things, but I was afraid.  A WAHM cloth diaper can be expensive.  I would be taking a chance on getting ripped off.  I was uncertain about warranties and quality control.  And I had to make sure that it was a true WAHM cloth diaper shop, not a shop that claimed to sell WAHM diapers but were actually rebranded China cheapies at a 400% mark up.

Really, it’s a lot of the same debate that I had any time I considered buying cloth diapers from anywhere but my local diaper shop.  (Usually, that struggle involves feelings of infidelity, debating on if I want to go ahead and buy enough to qualify for free shipping, and some variations of worries about customer service.)

At the same time, though, I’d seen some absolutely gorgeous WAHM diapers on Etsy and such.

Thanks to Diapers by Chris, I’ve decided to be bold and give more WAHM diaper companies a chance.  In particular, I was for a pink paisley fabric that is similar to the pattern on the Purple Paisley Sunbaby diaper.  In fact, I’d go so far as to say that I need a pink paisley homemade diaper.  A pink crushed panne interior and petal inserts topped with cotton velour sounds really, really appealing…  And it absolutely must have PUL, whether it’s hidden or a PUL print because I don’t want to cover up anything that beautiful.

And what’s awesome is I gave Chris some vague idea of what I wanted, and she’s found something that’s beautiful.  I will have my beautiful pink paisley diaper, and I can’t wait!

Have you ever used WAHM diapers before?  What was your experience like?

Diapers by Chris – #FluffyXmas Spotlight

Diapers by Chris is a small WAHM business.  Chris started out making diapers for her daughter, but so many people loved her creations that she started making them for others as well.  While I’ve become addicted to collecting cloth diapers, Chris has the more functional and practical addiction to making them.  She sent me this beautiful skull cloth diaper to try out.

Cupcake Covers – #FluffyXmas Spotlight

Cupcake Covers - Merry Fluffy XmasIn the beginning, I stuck to major manufacturers for my cloth diapering needs.  Lately, though, I’ve been really enjoying WAHM businesses.  One awesome WAHM business that makes great products is Cupcake Covers.

Cupcake Covers is an Etsy store that has a variety of mom and family products.  She started out with just nursing covers (or “cupcake covers”), but has since expanded.  Now Cupcake Covers offers snack bags, cloth wipes, and wet bags… among other things.  I’ve got one of her wet bags in my stash (and did a review of it), which is absolutely amazing.  I actually like that wet bag better than I like my big name branded wet bags.

Her cloth wipes?  Gorgeous.  Her snack bags are just as beautiful as her other things, and her unpaper towels have me ready to ditch my Bounty select a size and go paperless.

Aside from the quality of her merchandise (which is equal to or better than major manufacturers), you can also get a wide variety of prints and patterns to coordinate with… well, pretty much anything.  If you’ve got a jungle themed nursery, she’s got stuff to match.  I like my travel wet bags to coordinate with my diaper bags, and the monkey wet bag that I have goes perfectly with the pink monkey toddler backpack that I use to carry my daughter’s things.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can always ask.  She does custom work, plus she updates her inventory frequently.

Stop by Cupcake Covers and browse her selection!  What would you like the most from her store?

Cupcake Covers is one of our sponsors in the Merry Fluffy Christmas Blog Hop, so you’ll have a chance to WIN some of her awesome creations!
