Diapers We Love - a customer's story

by Christina C.

Before our daughter was born I assembled a stash of about 26 different diapers. I admit it was a little compulsive, but I wanted to try everything. She soon grew out of those small diapers and as we moved up a size I consolidated our stash to our favorites for each of our three basic diaper needs.

Our “Hanging Around the House” diaper is Bum Genius bamboo fitted. It’s what I use 80% of the time. This diaper is amazing. It has never leaked. Not when she took a 5 hour nap, not when she let 3 days of poop loose all at once. It is soft and fluffy and I love putting it on her little bottom! Being a fitted diaper it does need a cover, but I think the two-part system is why we never have leaks – it’s hard to get past two barriers!

Our “Out and About” diaper is the SposoEasy All in One. This diaper is fabulously quick and easy to use, no matter where we are or who’s doing the changing. I’ve had a couple minor leaks in the SposoEasys but nothing that compares to the “blowout” stories of my friends using disposables.

Our “Nighttime Diaper” is a Happy Hempy pocket fitted, stuffed with a Loopy Do insert. This diaper has serious absorbency. Good thing, because it has to last 10 hours! I like the fleece lining, because our daughter sleeps deeper when she feels dry. Yes, these are fitted diapers and they need a cover, but remember what I said about the two layer system? We cosleep, and mama never has to wake up to wet sheets. Wonderful.

I’m glad we tried different diapers at first, because now we have a great, dependable system. Experimentation works!
