Lanibaby Cloth Diapers

Lanibaby cloth diapers are still new to the cloth diaper scene. But let me tell you…. they’re gonna go far.

A little background info. Andrea was a cloth diapering mama that had a slim baby and couldn’t find many options for her son. He was also a heavy wetter- so much so, that she was eventually changing him every 45 minutes. And who has the time for that??? After trying different options for her inserts, different brands, and even triple stuffing her pocket diapers…. she was almost ready to just throw in the towel on cloth diapers. After talking to other cloth diapering moms, she found out that bamboo and hemp were a good combination, but the dry time just wasn’t ideal. The other obstacle was just his size- he was slim with skinny little legs. There needed to be a diaper that offered the natural materials but that fit around his little legs and fit with little to no bulk. Andrea decided that she needed to create the perfect cloth diaper system for her child. Thus, Lanibaby cloth diapers were born! πŸ™‚

Today. Hello Lanibaby, Heavenly Cloth Diapers! These cloth diapers are pockets with an opening in both the front and back. This makes life SO much easier when it comes to laundry. Because of the two openings, I don’t have to unstuff the pocket- my washing machine does it automatically when it’s agitating.

Now… let’s talk about these inserts. You can see me freak out about them a little bit here. It was a live Facebook video and there’s a reason why I don’t do them often. #HotMessMom all the way!

 

The inserts are both bamboo and hemp, but they’re constructed in a way that the ends are sewn together, but the middle is open. This allows the smaller inserts to be tucked into the bigger inserts as an AWESOME overnight option but so that they also have a lesser dry time. No more two or three cycles for the dryer! πŸ˜‰ The top layer is 70% rayon from bamboo, 30% cotton. And the bottoms layer is 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. Talk about absorbency! Jackson can use the smaller insert through a nap guys- that’s amazing!

15134088_10154716008964282_1838093350_o

Lanibaby diapers are manufactured in China, in a warehouse that does not employ children, workers get vacation time and sick leave, and have normal work day hours. They do high-quality work and it really stands out with these diapers. These diapers are CPSIA compliant so they meet all USA standards for being used on children.

15145155_10154715700924282_557682986_o

Now for my experience. Oh. My. Goodness. I could really relate to Andrea’s struggle with a tiny baby. Jackson is a peanut so having a diaper specifically made for slender babies has been life changing. With the smaller insert, I’m confident that he won’t have any leaks during nap time. And it passed my overnight test when using the smaller insert tucked inside the medium insert! Lanibaby just came out with a larger insert as well, but it was a little too big for me to use with Jackson right now. I do believe that it will come in handy as he grows; it’s a great option for bigger babies! Now… for the cute pictures! You can really tell that the diaper fits him well and that it’s not too bulky on his tiny body. This diaper really felt like it was made for MY baby!

Diaper "Stalking" Stocking Day

This is something I think most cloth diapering mamas know way too well. All week long before the stocking date, you gather up your funds. This could mean you’re selling some diapers you don’t reach for, taking money out of the savings account, or begging your husband for the credit card! It’s a crazy countdown to that day, and if publicly released, that specific time. You feel like that day is never going to come. You’re so nervous that you won’t be able to snag exactly what you want so you make a game plan. And it may look something like this:

stocking plan

You may have your husband or friend at the ready on their computer and phone too. You’ll both be refreshing and refreshing. Or, you’ll be all on your own. Double the work- Refresh, Refresh, REFRESH! Come on diapers! Stock already!! OH MY GOSH! There they are. Now you’ve gotta rush. Rush to get those that were on top priority.

  • Goodnight Moon purchased from Spray Pal– Check.
  • Rush over to Dream Diapers. Site crashed. Dangit. You think, “Everyone needs their diapers. Why can’t people just move over for a minute so I can get what I need. How greedy.” Finally you get through, get to PayPal, and checkout. But man oh man. You’re waiting for what feels like 10 minutes for that confirmation email. Whew. Ahoy, Moo Moo, and Peek a Boo- Check.
  • Rush over to Lalabye Baby. OH NO! Commence panic. 3 Blind Mice is Out of Stock! NOOOOOO! Sad day. Everyone else got one but you. You think, “I’ll be the only one without this beautiful new diaper in my stash.” But in reality, there are hundreds of other mamas feeling the exact same way. But you manage to grab the rest you wanted.

A sigh of relief. The damage to your PayPal account has been done. Fluff Mail will be arriving next week and you can not wait. You feel like it will be months before the postal worker knocks on your door with so many packages, full of your beautiful new fluff. It’s so beautiful that you could roll around in it. You may have day dreams about this moment. But then you take a step back and think, “Dang, am I crazy?!” Nope. You’re not alone. You’re just a cloth diaper addict that fell under the spell of the Cloth Diaper Stocking. πŸ˜‰

Lalabye Baby Cloth Diaper Review

lalabye

I’m doing something different for this Lalabye Baby cloth diaper review! There’s a video! πŸ™‚ Now, be a little nice because this is my very first video and I totally recorded it and messed with it about 20 times! πŸ˜‰

 

A few things I forgot to mention in the video:

  • Lalabye Baby diapers are made with TPU, not PUL. This is a higher quality fabric and is also better for the environment.
  • Lalabye Baby diapers should fit babies from around 6 pounds to 35 pounds.

Β And here are what some other people had to say about Lalabye Baby when asked what they like/love about them!

  • EVERYTHING!! I used to have a stash full of big name brand diapers but then I tried a lalabye thanks to spraypal and was immediately hooked. They’re super trim, bright rich solid colors and fun prints, LOVE the color coded snaps, 2 bamboo inserts, really great price, and most importantly an amazing momma behind the company! I sold off all of my name brand diapers to get more lalabyes and I couldn’t be happier!
  • Love the bamboo inserts and the trimness of the Lalabye. Great price for a quality diaper too.
  • This is our go-to diaper! Love the bamboo inserts, super trim fit, bright colors and contrasting snaps, the option to use it as pocket or ai2, the owner is SUPER sweet and I could go on and on! I have a 4 month old and a 2.5 year old and these diapers fit great on both! My 4 month old has been wearing them since 8 weeks and I was impressed with the fit. Love the color coded snaps as well, my hubby isn’t a fan of snaps but with the color system he can get a good fit without the gues work. Did I mention I love these diapers?!
  • I love how trim and absorbent they are! And who wouldn’t love all the bright fun colors.
  • These diapers are high quality with an affordable price tag. Trim, highly absorbant and super fun colors. We love them!
  • Great quality, love the overall look & fit… also that I can use as AI2 or pocket. And the wonderful all-bamboo inserts! Oh, and can’t forget the snaps. The fit my chubby 8 week old beautifully on 2nd rise from the bottom. I also feel that they are a good value because they are under $20 and include the 2 bamboo inserts.
  • I agree with everything previously said. Trim, super absorbent, great fit (I put one on a 5lb 14oz preemie), beautiful colors and prints, great price, quality product (unlike my big name brands who’s elastics haven’t even made it 9mos), the tpu is so soft, and I love the rainbow snaps! The rainbow snap system got my husband and mil on board with snap diapers! Also, the owner is a great lady who I love to support.

So you can see, Lalabye Baby Diapers are AMAZING! I urge everyone to just try one! You really won’t be sorry! Interested in trying one? Enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a $20 gift card just in time for their next stocking!! πŸ™‚

Diaper Dawgs Spray Collar

dd spray1

Just a few weeks ago, Diaper Dawgs made the announcement of another new product. It was kept secret for a bit and then once it was announced, no one had seen a real picture of this new product! Just a few days ago, Diaper Dawgs released a picture of the Diaper Dawgs Spray Collar. It will soon be made available for purchase to help you tackle the dirty mess that comes along with cloth diapers!

spray collar

The Diaper Dawgs Spray Collar is a food grade silicone funnel that attaches to most diaper sprayers. It was created to make spraying off the poop a little less messy. Instead of trying to take control from the diaper, they decided to try a different angle and take it from the sprayer. (Smart idea!)

dd spray3 dd spray4

The Spray Collar is light weight, durable, and matches the other Diaper Dawgs’ products! The best part, it DOES NOT affect your sprayer in any way. You can still hang it up with its hook, place it behind between the wall and the toilet (what we do), or whatever you do with your sprayer when not in use. The only thing that is different, is how you spray. Instead of spraying from afar, you put it up close. This keeps the back splash contained in the funnel and more pressure on the poop.

dd spray 6

All in all, I have found this to be extremely helpful. I think the Spray Collar would work in any bathroom but would be extremely helpful in smaller bathrooms or half baths. No extra equipment, no setting up or tearing down, it’s just ready to go! There are no nooks or cranies for pieces of poop to hide so it’s easy to wipe down with a Clorox wipe or sanitize it in the microwave in one of those steamers bags. I just wanna say good luck to the poopy water because it’s no match for the Spray Collar! πŸ˜‰

Diaper Dawgs Cloth Wipes

Have you heard about Diaper Dawgs Cloth Wipes?

Diaper Dawgs were created by a cloth diapering mama that wanted to get rid of the ick factor (or at least cut it back some) when taking care of the poop messes that comes with cloth diaper territory. You can see my review for these handy little guys here. After the success of Diaper Dawgs was apparent, the makers of Diaper Dawgs decided to come out with a new product- cloth wipes. But what makes these wipes so special from the hundreds of other brands you can try?

These wipes are like gloves. Yes! There is an opening that you can stick your hand in to wipe the bum. No more crossing your fingers that your wipe doesn’t slip up and hope poop aren’t under your nails or on your finger! Or you can use it like my husband does and flip it inside out after the outside is all dirty from a massive poop explosion and use the inside too. This means you could use half the amount of wipes!

diaper dawgs wipesdiaper dawgs wipes 2 diaper dawgs wipes 3

Now isn’t that a neat idea? My husband LOVES these wipes. He actually requested that I replace all of our wipes with them! Now of course, I have many, many wipes so I can exactly do that. But I do like using these a lot.

These wipes are made of 70% viscose bamboo, 28% organic cotton, and 2% polyester with 100% polyester thread. They are 8×6 rectangles that are perfect for big or small hands. They are some heavy duty wipes but are still soft enough for baby’s bum. These wipes are sold in 6 pack bundles. I really like the thread colors that can match your set of Diaper Dawgs! Best of all, these wipes are made in the USA by a group of stay at home moms.

These wipes have gotten me through some messy situations and I’ve been thankful to have them every single time. Want to purchase them yourself? Click on the “What Do You Do With Poop” banner on the right hand side —–> and you’ll be directed to Diaper Dawgs’ website. These wipes retail at $9.95 but at the end of the week, you have a chance to win them! Make sure you are subscribed to the blog by entering your email over there too —-> so you’ll be the first to know about the giveaway! πŸ™‚

Buttons Cloth Diapers

When I started cloth diapering Bai, we used pockets. Then I ventured into some prefolds and then finally discovered all in ones. To me, they were easy- no stuffing, no folding, just all right there and good to go. Then I found Buttons Cloth Diapers.

buttons3

Buttons diapers are very “wallet friendly” when you’re starting cloth. Because of their system, you need a very small amount of covers to start out- like when using prefolds and covers. The only difference is no folding, no stuffing, its all right there! This diaper “system” uses snaps to hold the insert in place. It’s simple. One snap in the back, one snap in the front, and you’ve got yourself an absorbent diaper!

buttons2 buttons5

This diaper is a one-size diaper and is marketed to fit babies between 9 and 35 pounds. There are two different sizes of inserts- small will fit between 9 and 20 pounds and large will fit between 20 and 35 pounds. The inserts are made of microfiber but have a soft fleece top so it’s safe against baby’s skin. The daytime inserts are very trim and fit nicely inside the diaper. The overnight doubler is thicker, adds a lot more layers, and makes the diaper less trim but SUPER absorbent!!

buttons1 buttons4

If you’ve read any of my other cloth diaper reviews, you’d know we don’t end up trying many of the diapers overnight simply because they just won’t work. Baileigh is a super duper heavy wetter and can pee out of anything so it’s very difficult to find one that will work. Well ladies and gentlemen, this is one diaper that DOES work! The first night we tested it, I couldn’t believe it worked! I was literally in awe. I felt like that couldn’t have been right so I made that day diaper laundry day so I could put her in it the next night. And sure enough, no leaks that night either! So I HIGHLY recommend Buttons Diapers!!

buttons7

What makes these incredibly affordable? You can use one cover for on average 3 diaper changes. As long as your cover didn’t have to keep in a poop explosion, you should be able to just wipe it clean, stick in a new insert, and you’re good to go! A full “stash” can be made up of 8-10 covers, 18-24 inserts, and 2-3 overnight doublers! Check out Buttons Diapers HERE and see their prices for each item individually but also take a look at their packs!! πŸ™‚

Our Cloth Diaper Wash Routine

Cloth Diapers can be complicated, but I believe it’s only as complicated as you make them! I will totally admit that I was super overwhelmed when we decided to make the switch from disposables. There was so much information to read, to take in, and to just learn. A lot of things are just trial and error and you can’t really read enough to just figure that stuff out. You don’t know what inserts you’ll like, what type of diaper will work for you, what cloth diaper wash routine will work, so on and so forth. Some people make the wash routine complicated. Me… I make it as simple as can be:

  • Warm Rinse, no detergent.
  • Heavy Duty Wash, with detergent
  • Cold Rinse and Spin

And then you’re done! Bahda-bing. Bahda-boom. I throw everything in the dryer with wool dryer balls for 20 minutes, take out the covers and AIO diapers, and then finish drying the inserts, prefolds, and cloth wipes. The detergent needs to be what works for you. In our house, we use Gain. We’ve tried cloth diaper detergent and it didn’t take out our ammonia issues. We tried ALL free and clear, also didn’t take out our ammonia issues. We switched to Gain and have had no problems. It canceled out the warranty in our bumGenius diapers, but most of them were bought used anyways. We use a small amount of bleach about once a month to really clean them and use RLR Laundry Treatment as needed. The dirty diapers are in a hanging “rubbish bag” that was bought from Alva Baby. I spray off any poopy diapers and then just throw them in the bag. I usually wash every other to every two days. It honestly depends on the stink from the bag, how many diapers have been used, and if I really want her to wear a diaper that day that was in the bag dirty. I have so many things going on that I just can’t handle complicated.

So tell me, what’s your wash routine with your cloth diapers? And what detergent have you found works in your house??

BB-Cloth Diaper Review

BB-Cloth makes one-size pocket cloth diapers in a variety of fun prints, solids, and football team logos! They’re affordable and adorable. So what more could you really need?!

A little bit of background of BB-Cloth: This company was created November 1, 2013 after noticing the lack of football team cloth diapers on the market printed on PUL fabric. The company has since taken requests for new teams and other prints. Each design is their own and is made in a limited quantity.

bbcloth4 bbcloth5

Chevron is super popular in our house so this diaper is more than just a pretty design! This diaper also came with a bamboo blend insert. Their insert worked so well that I didn’t have to double up on inserts like I usually have to do with any other diapers. This made the diaper super trim and not bulky. I was very surprised that the one insert worked so well for Baileigh! I usually have a horrible time with new diapers because she’s a heavy wetter and it takes a lot of trial and error to figure out how much pee that particular diaper will hold and if it can withstand a long car ride or her 2 hour naptime.

bbcloth1 bbcloth3Β bbcloth2

I was very impressed with this diaper. It is similar to an Alva diaper, but with higher quality. Since it does compare to an Alva, you could also use it as a newborn diaper folded like this.

BB-Cloth also has a variety of fun prints that have JUST been released! And aren’t they adorable???

How to Make a OS Diaper into a Newborn Size

Most cloth diapering mamas know (or at some point realize) that one size diapers will not fit the tiniest of little humans. One size diapers will usually fit about 8lbs to 30lbs but there are plenty of room for leaks or explosions through the rather large leg holes. Here’s how to make a OS Diaper into a newborn size for your tiny baby!

alva os into newborn1 alva os into newborn2 alva os into newborn3 alva os into newborn4

The diaper that I used was one of my “China Cheapies.” It may take some trial and error on other diapers, but it will work on an Alva. Try this on your newborn baby and share a picture of your tiny Fluff Bum Baby!! πŸ™‚

A Big NO NO in Colder Weather!!

no coats in car seats

Just a friendly reminder: please DO NOT keep a puffy winter coat on your baby/toddler/child when putting them in a car. It is so unsafe and could cause harm if in a car crash. A few good alternatives are:

  • blanket in the car
  • allow the car to warm up before bringing baby out there
  • a light weight sweatshirt or fleece jacket
  • strapping baby in the car and then putting the coat on backwards

We have a special balnket in the car for the girls and they wear light, zip up sweatshirts. We put their heavy coats on to transport them from the house to the car, the car to the store, the car to the house, etc. but they are always taken off before strapping them into their car seat. Safety first!!

Fluff Mail

Empty-Mailbox

When you know that you’re getting new diapers in the mail, the day feels like it takes forever! The anticipation is killing me!! You could have an entire stack of bills in that mailbox but one new diaper makes it an AWESOME mail day. Anyone agree?? I’ve got a few diapers coming my way today and I am so excited! I even put off diaper laundry so I could prep the new ones while washing the others. I’m hoping they’re just as good looking in person as they were online!! I got a few girly prints and I think 2 gender neutral. They’re “China Cheapies” but that doesn’t make them any less exciting in my book!

Do you have diapers coming your way today?? πŸ™‚ And if so, what brand?! And just a reminder about the Christmas Giveaway!! Make sure that you enter and the winner will be announced Tuesday afternoon! Will it be you?! πŸ˜‰

Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway Announcement!!

Glow Bug cloth diapers are made in China and the company is based in Canada. They are a great option if you are wanting to build a stash quickly because their diapers ONLY come in packages of 12. They do occasionally have Mini Bundles with only 4 diapers. I have found that if you are apart of a co-op, you may be able to find a group that offers them. And B/S/T groups are always a great option to find a single diaper to try before buying an entire package. Glow Bug diapers are one size pockets. They each come with two microfiber inserts that snap together and snap into the front of the pocket. The pocket is a little different because it opens at both the front AND the back. This makes stuffing the diaper a little bit easier! What really sets these diapers apart from others is the 360 degree gussets! Baileigh usually has solid poops so this doesn’t really do anything special for us. However, I believe this would be an AWESOME feature for those early, exclusively breastfed poops!!

glow bug 2 glow bug

I really like how different these diapers are. You’re not going to find a diaper similar to these and that’s really important in the cloth diapering world. These days, this diaper relates to that diaper and none of them are really unique. I don’t love every design that these diapers come in and the packages only option isn’t so buyer friendly. When you do divide the price between the items in the package, it’s an awesome deal. But you need to have that $150 to spend at that one time.

These diapers do hold a lot of pee and I believe that is greatly due to having two inserts. I have found these to be great during naptime, long car rides, running errands, etc. I also believe that this diaper would work just fine for a light wetter overnight. Here’s Bai with her classic pose for showing off her diaper:

Cloth Diapers on a Budget

It’s no secret that cloth diapering saves money. I bought an entire stash for less than what I would pay for 3 months of disposable diapers and wipes. And to top that off, I can use the cloth diapers for any future babies. I will admit, I do continue to buy cloth diapers. Do I need them? No. Do I want them? Yes. But even then, I’ve still saved money and that was one of the major reasons why we switched in the beginning. Here are a few ways to save even more money while cloth diapering, getting started on a strict budget, or just doing it as cheap as possible! I’m also including a roundabout total for roughly 20 diapers. That’s enough diapers to go a day and a half to two days between washing unless you have a newborn. And please note: the totals depend on the exact brand and will vary.

1) Prefolds or Flats with a Cover —> $115

This is what most people probably think of when they think of cloth diapers. Prefolds and flats are the basics of cloth diapering. Most people now use them as burp rags because they are so absorbent. They need to be folded and a cover must be used because there is no waterproof material in a prefold or flat. They are just simple layers of cloth. There are a lot of very inexpensive covers out there. I prefer a Kawaii cover or an Econobum cover when you’re talking cheap. They are cheap, but very well made. Econobum actually has a complete pack full of prefolds and covers. You should have a total of 3 covers and 12 prefolds/flats to last a day. There are videos on YouTube to demonstrate different folds and they’re not difficult at all! I would also suggest buying a Snappi, Boingo, or some safety pins.

prefold and cover

2) Receiving Blankets —> $100

Yep. I said it. Remember all those blankets that you got at your baby shower? You probably didn’t use half of them! The total above reflects buying all new receiving blankets and not using the ones you already own. Fold those blankets up in a tri-fold and lay them inside of a cover. Instant diaper! More than likely, you already have a few (or a hundred) of these laying around your home already. If you’re still debating on whether or not you’d like to give cloth diapering a try, get on Amazon and purchase a cover or two and put a receiving blanket in it! You really can’t get cheaper than that since you’re mainly using what you already have!

receiving blanket and cover

3) China Cheapies —> $112

I’m not going to lie; most of my stash is made up of China Cheapies. I honestly don’t have any issues with them, yet. Some people blow through them quickly because they aren’t of a consistent quality but none of mine have had issues yet after a few months of using them often! Some brands would include: Alva, Babyland, Sunbaby, Kawaii, Happy Flute. These are not bad diapers at all! But you will end up paying about $5-$8 per pocket diaper instead of $15. If this is what is more affordable for you, then do it! You honestly won’t be sorry. And the patterns are just too darn cute!

china cheapies

4) Co-Op Buys —> $85

This kind of goes along with #3. You can buy a lot of “China Cheapies” through a co-op. Co-ops are a bunch of people looking to buy the same products. One of the them gathers the order, everyone pays that person, they place the order, and then that person receives it to sort and ship it to the individuals. By doing this, they get wholesale prices which could make that $6 Alva diaper you want to buy only $3 and some change. The only downside to this is that you can’t really start right away because it does take a couple weeks.

 

As you can see, you can buy diapers very cheaply. There are diapers that you can buy one for $35. But when your child is just going to poop and pee in them, why would you want your entire stash to be that much? I have varying brands in my stash and they range from $4 diapers to $35 diapers. If you are interested in trying cloth, try one of the above methods to get your feet a little wet and then decide if cloth is right for you. And did I mention that cloth diapers have a pretty good resell value? As long as you have taken care of them and washed them properly, you could try them and decide cloth isn’t for you and then sell them on a B/S/T site and get most of your money back. So what’s holding you back?!? πŸ™‚
