Review & Giveaway: Sprout Change diapers from the Willow Store



As you all know, I LOVE cloth diapers! I LOVE finding new brands of diapers as well! I recently came across the Willow Store. They carry any natural family products, including Willow Pads, Willow Sprouts, and other natural living products. But my favorite product they carry are Sprout Change diapers!

Sprout Change diapers are One Size diapers, which I just love because then I can use them on ALL of my kids! The covers are also reversible, so you can decide which color you want to use! The cover is like the adjustable waist band in children's pants; it was a little to tricky to figure out, but we eventually did! I really love the soaker that came with this diaper, it's very absorbent.



After years of research, and cloth diapering her children, Catherine Bolden created The Willow Store. Dedicated to promoting a more reusable future, she created natural, common sense products that were easy to use, and complimented a more natural lifestyle. In 2005, WillowSprouts was born, and offered organic hemp diapering products to the cloth diapering world. Catherine spent years trying different cloth diapers to find the perfect fit for her son, who has special needs. Each diaper worked well for some things, but nothing gave the perfect combination of fit, absorbency and ease of use, so in 2010, she created Sprout Change.

Sprout Change came from this need for a better diaper. There’s plenty of cloth diapers out there, and they all pretty much work. Sprout Change is a compilation of all the great things cloth diapers can be. Our system is a hybrid unlike any other that combines pocket diapers, prefolds and all-in-ones to make the least confusing, most economical diaper available.... That anyone can afford.

Review & Giveaway: Bum Covered Diapers cloth diapers



I'm always on the search for new cloth diapers to add to my stash! When I started cloth diapering, I thought I'd just find one brand I liked and stick with that. But I've found that there are MANY brands and types that I like & I like having options.

I recently decided to try fitted diapers. I turned to Bum Covered Diapers because they have a GREAT Build-Your-Own fitted diaper! What could be better than designing a diaper exactly how you wan it?!

These fitted diapers are made exactly the way you want them! You choose the flannel print for the outside. We put two layers of flannel and a heavy soaker pad on the inside. We can create a custom diaper especially for your little one. You choose outside print, the soaker material, and the inside fabric! These diapers will require a waterproof cover. Plastic pants will do, or PUL covers like Thirsties, or Bummis Wraps will work fine.



They have tons of super cute prints!



I am super happy with this diaper! I got a size large & it fits all THREE of my kids (ranging from 18-28 pounds.) I originally didn't think I'd like fitteds, because I love the versatility of OS diapers since I have THREE in diapers, so I was pleased that this fit all of them.

This diaper is super absorbent. You're technically supposed to use a cover, but I've never had to and we've never had a leak! (I would definitely use a cover for naptime/bedtime, though!)

Review & Giveaway: Thirsties Duo Wrap



With three babies in diapers, I'm always on the lookout for new diapers to add to our stash. We've tested out lots of different brands! I've heard a lot about Thirsties, but had never tried them until they sent me a Thirsties Duo Wrap with a Duo Hemp Prefold.

I generally am not a fan of prefolds. With three babies in diapers, I am changing diapers ALL day & prefolds require folding and are usually bulkier. I really love the Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold, though! It's thinner, so it folds easily and it's not bulky AT ALL! Hemp is just SO absorbent that it's effective without adding bulk. We have never had this diaper leak!

The Thirsties Duo Wrap is also super cute! It features:
* An adjustable rise for extended use to suit your growing baby
* Leg gussets provide superior protection against leaks
* Pliable and breathable in 8 fresh colors




Thirsties carries many other products! They have duo diapers, duo fab fitteds, pre-wash, booty luster, and wipes!






Here's more about Thirsties!

We are very proud of the fact that all of our products are USA-made by a group of very talented women, many of whom work in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Thanks to the support of our dedicated customers, we are celebrating the direct development of 12 new jobs in our area-that's putting bread on the table for families right here in Colorado!
This represents incredible and exciting growth in such shaky economic times and we have
you and your support to thank!

We use only the best of USA-sourced components in order to reduce our carbon
footprint, to help support domestic textile mills, and to ensure your diapers will last wash
after wash. Each and every aspect of the design of our diapers is carefully considered and all fabric and components are vigilantly selected as the very best. Thirsties cloth diapers are well-known as providing the very best in comfort and leak-proof cloth diapering.

Our goal of becoming Carbon Neutral is well underway! We have installed a behemoth of a solar panel array, with a configuration that at full-capacity will produce enough electricity to cover more than all of the business' needs-11 clean, sustainable, photovoltaic Kilowatts. This equates to a total CO2 reduction of 200 tons, as if we are planting over 7700 trees!

We honestly believe that we are in the best possible business. We believe this because you share in our values for happy and healthy baby beginnings, and by virtue of such you continue the fight for sound futures. If ever you have any suggestions on how to improve our products or the way in which we operate our business, we'd love to hear your suggestions!

Our warehouse is a renovated 1920's feed store in downtown Cañon City, Colorado. Cañon City is a small town nestled up against the south-eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains. We choose to relocate from Denver over 4 years ago to enjoy the great climate and endless recreational opportunities. The Arkansas River provides some of the best rafting and kayaking in the world. The hills that surround us offer amazing hiking and mountain biking opportunities. If you happen to be cruising through sunny and beautiful, Cañon City, Colorado...we'd love to meet you and give you the tour. For now, we are happy to meet you 'virtually'!

Snap-EZ Diapers Makes Cloth Diapering "EZ"!



As I've written before, we're a cloth diapering family. Since we're a foster family, we will have kiddos in diapers for many years. I just couldn't fathom spending a fortune on something that I would throw in the trash. Cloth diapers are better for your babies, your pocketbook, & your environment.

We've mostly used diapers with covers, but have tried a few AIOs. I was so excited when Snap-EZ said they would send me one of their great diapers, because I finally got to try out a pocket diaper!



I was very pleased with the performance of this diaper. The waterproof shell has never leaked for us, and the inside microfleece is super soft! The leg casings are perfectly sized. Other diapers leave marks on my kiddos legs from the elastic, but not the Snap-EZ!

Snap-EZ also offers other great items like cloth wipes, wet bags, & cloth pads.



BUY IT

Sadly, Snap-EZ is going out of business. BUT that means that all of their diapers are now reduced in price! Their one size pocket diapers are now only $16.95 and their training pants are only $17. All of the great Snap-EZ products can be found here.

Rockin' Green Soap Review



Over the past few weeks, the biggest nightmare for a cloth diapering mama has occurred at our house.

Yep, that's right. We had a case of the STINKIES.

Ammonia buildup can occur in diapers with the use of inadequate soap. We use the Flip & Econobum diapering systems & have been using an "approved" detergent to wash them in. One day I opened our diaper pail & got hit with that strong ammonia smell. Yuck! I immediately hopped on the computer & emailed Rockin' Green to see if they could help me.

And they did!

As soon as I got the soap in the mail (I got Classic Rock in The Plain Green Teas) I started a soak. I threw ALL my diapers in the washer, filled it up with Rockin' Green, added the Classic Rock (which smelled amazing!) & let it soak for an hour. I then washed the diapers like I normally do (a cold wash, a hot wash, then an extra rinse) without adding more soap. After the last rinse, I pulled out my diapers, stuck my nose in them, and.... they didn't STINK!

The difference between Rockin' Green and other detergents is that it is truly clean rinsing. Soap buildup causes stinkies & rashes. Let Kim from Rockin' Green explain it herself:



I now use Rockin' Green every time I wash our diapers and we've had no more issues with the stinkies!



BUY IT

You can buy Rockin' Green Soap here. It is available in Soft Rock, Classic Rock, & Hard Rock in SIX different scents. A bag of Classic Rock with 45/90 loads is only $13.95. There are also other great products like Pail Freshener, Laundry Scoops, Diaper Sprayers, and Dryer Balls. Shipping starts at just $1 and all orders over $75 ships free!

Bummas Review & Giveaway



We're a cloth diapering family, here in the Giveaways for Mom household. And we love it! We love ALL the benefits of cloth diapers (environmental, budget, & health.)

Did you know that it takes 500 years for ONE disposable diaper to decompose in a landfill?? That means, the very first disposable diaper EVER used is STILL sitting in our environment. Pretty gross, huh?

Did you know that it can cost $1000 a year to diaper your baby with disposable diapers?? $1000 a year for something you're going to be throwing away! We spent $150 on our entire, lifetime supply of diapers. Much more economical!

Did you know sodium polyacrylate, the clear gel-like substance you often find on your baby's genitals after a diaper change, gives disposable diapers their super absorbant characteristic. Its use in tampons was banned in 1985 because of its link to Toxic Shock Syndrome. And most recently Tributylin was found in disposable diapers. TBT is ranked by the World Health Organization as one of the most toxic substances in use in consumer products in the world today. It is completely insane that this is what we put on our baby's skin!

After we started cloth diapering, the next logical step was switching to cloth wipes. If you use disposable diapers & disposable wipes to clean off your baby's bum, you just wrap up the wipe with the dipe when you throw it away. But if you're using disposable wipes with cloth diapers, you have to separate the wipe from the diaper & throw it away. That extra step can really be a pain.

We've tried another brand of cloth wipes. They were flannel, which made them super soft, but I noticed they required several wipes to get the job done.

Which is why I was so excited to try out the Bummas wipes!

  • Bummas are 100% cotton.
  • Bummas won't pill, shrink, or fade. (Awesome, since I love the colors so much!)
  • Bummas are durable, to stand up to many uses & washings.
  • Bummas are made in the USA!
These wipes work great. Since they are cotton, they're a little tougher than the flannel wipes, so they get the job done while using less wipes, yet are still soft enough for my baby's sensitive skin. The true test came for the first dirty diaper change. I was super happy when I only had to use one Bummas wipe instead of three or four, like I do with the flannel wipes. Less laundry!

Want some Bummas wipes of your own??
