Buttons Cloth Diapers Review

9 Jan

I am very excited to present to you my very first cloth diaper review.

I was given the opportunity to test and review a Buttons Cloth Diapers diaper cover system and I have to admit, I was impressed. I recieved a one size cover in Apple with a large daytime insert.

A Few Fabulous Facts About Buttons Cloth Diapers:

This is a one size cover, which is my absolute favorite because that means you can use the same diaper for all of your diapering days. Buttons diapers will fit little loves from about 9 to 35lbs.

Elastic in the back and front gives these diapers a snug, comfortable fit.

Double leg gussets are excellent at preventing leaks.

Unique snap in inserts come in two different sizes to best fit growing babies. The small insert fits approximately 9-20 lbs while the large insert is best for 20-35 lbs. Each are made of 4 absorbent layers of microfiber with a super soft layer of fleece on top which wicks away moisture to keep baby’s bottom dry. Nighttime doublers are also available. These are made of 6 layers of microfiber for added protection against overnight leaks.

Did I Love It?

Yes, I did! I loved the fit of these diapers. I hate bulk and I found these fairly trim. The fit on my son was excellent. Nice and snug. I was unsure about the low rise in the front but this didn’t seem to pose any problems for us. I’m not normally the biggest fan of covers but, for these, I can make an exception. The snap in inserts made them fool proof. Easy peasy. No leaks to report and my sugar looked adorable in this lovely apple green color. Not to mention, that cute little button design on the back. I am happy to now have a Buttons diaper in my stash.

Fluffy Butts

While I was pregnant with my son, I started looking into cloth diapering. Unfortunately I didn’t look long. I immediately jumped to the (wrong) conclusion that cloth diapering was icky and hard. Afterall, we had a stack of disposables from our baby shower that resembled the Eiffel Tower. Low and behold, when Silas was about 5 months old my disposable diaper stash began to disappear and new packs were costing us a pretty penny. So I decided to give cloth diapering a go one more time.

As you know I love to do, I did a little research. Man, was I overwhelmed at first. Did you know there’s a billion ways to cloth diaper?! Well maybe not a billion but several. You can use prefolds, flats, even flour sack towels and a cover or a pocket, a fitted, a hybrid, an all in one, or an all in two. You can choose insert options such as microfiber, bamboo, charcoal bamboo, hemp, or something mysterious called zorb. That’s a lot for a gal to take in. I’m not going to even attempt to explain the differences to you but I’ll post some helpful links at the bottom of this post. All I know is I’m a pocket with a cbi fan.

What’s so awesome about cloth diapering? Well obviously it saves money. Most families save upwards of $1,000 a child! But it’s also good for the environment. Did you know it takes a disposable diaper 250-500 years to completely decompose in our landfills?! Yikes. And it’s better for your baby. No harsh chemicals.

Is cloth diapering hard? Honestly its not. Now don’t get me wrong, it isn’t as convenient as disposables but it is no where near as difficult as I’d imagined. In fact, its pretty easy, just a few extra loads of laundry and a slightly bulkier diaper bag. What about the poop? That was my main concern. The poop isn’t so bad either. If my son has a poopy I just clean him up like normal then take the diaper to the toilet, shake off the solid stuff, then spray off the diaper (with my shower sprayer but eventually I’m getting a diaper sprayer lol), and toss in the wet bag til laundry time. Pretty simple.

I love cloth diapering! And my son’s fluffy tooshie is so cute!
