Summer time is on the way! Did you purchase your babies Swim Diaper yet?

Summer time is almost here!  I know that's probably hard to believe for some of you who are still feeling the wrath of winter, but it's true I promise!

Swim Diapers are commonly one of those necessities that are forgotten, until you go to the pool or beach.  Then you realize how costly and ineffective disposable swimmies are and you realize you should have purchased a reusable swim diaper.

Reusable swim diapers are great for a variety of reasons.  First, they contain messes that disposable swim diapers do not.  They're avaialable in a variety of brands, prints and styles and look so cute that your little one won't even need a bathing suit over it.

They work great for any outdoor playtime activities, trips to the pool or local waterpark and trips to the beach, lake, pond, and so on.  They aren't bulky at all and contain gentle elastic that won't leave harsh red marks or irritation.

They are also really affordable.  Especially when you consider how much a pack of disposable swim diapers cost!

We recommend Bummis, they come in three sizes and are available in a variety of super cute prints for any little boy or girl in your life.  MSRP $13.95

Imse Vimse are also one of our family's favorites!  These great swimmers come in SEVEN different sizes and are also available in a variety of prints.  They're super comfortable and ready to wear, no added inserts or accessories needed.  MSRP $15.95

So swim into summer in style with these great reusable swim diapers!

Our son, 2 days old, sucking like crazy on his Giraffe!
My Review:
 We have three Wubbanubs that we've used with our son since he was born last June.  He took to them immediately in the hospital.  All of the nurses were impressed with our Giraffe Wubbanub and wanted to know more about it.  

Once home, our little guy used his Wubbanubs for several months before giving up binkies.  Now, at 9 months, he still loves to feel the animals, suck on the legs, and chew on the Soothie (yep, he's teething!). 

Our Wubbanubs have survived washing in the washing machine, chewing with little teeth, and being dropped in puddles.  They still look practically new and will last our little guy for as long as he wants them.

    Wubbanubs Retail for $11.95 and up.

    Kissaluvs Super Soaker, My Super Hero!

    Kissaluvs Super Soaker Review by Julie C.

    It's pretty common when you're cloth diapering to have some random diapers, inserts or other accessories that don't have a label on them for whatever reason.  Maybe their makers don't use a label, maybe it fell off.  The problem arises when you have something that you've fallen in love with and want MORE but you have no clue who made it or where it came from!

    This was the case for me and my Kissaluvs Super Soakers which to me were simply those mystery brand super awesome and really absorbent doublers that worked like a charm.  I had about four of them and was so pleased with how well they worked.

    Their shape made them super easy to use with any insert and any diaper, they fit so perfectly.  They were also very plush and now I know are appropriately named "Super Soakers."  When these doublers would come out of the diaper I swear they weighed more than the other insert and diaper combined.  They held so much pee, simply amazing.

    The sad thing is that I never found out what they were or where they came from.  I continued to use them and love them and it's only now that I know that they were Kissaluvs Super Soaker Doublers.  Had I known then what brand they were I surely would have invested in at least a dozen more, especially considering how affordable they are at only $3.49 each!

    I recommend you try some today!  Cloth Diaper Outlet has a nice in-stock selection of the Kissaluvs Super Soakers and they offer Free USA Shipping on all orders!

    Have you ever owned a Mystery Cloth Diaper that you absolutely love but can't find another of?  I'd love to hear from you!
