Buttons Diapers Review and Giveaway!

When I saw Buttons Diapers, I REALLY wanted to try them.  They were totally different than anything else in my diaper stash, and they looked awesome!
Alas, my bank account was near empty and I only had $22 in my PayPal account.  That was more than enough for a cover and inserts, but not for shipping.  So I contacted Amy at Buttons Diapers and offered to do a review in exchange for a discount so I could try them out.  She did way better, and offered to send me a cover, daytime insert, and nighttime doubler, free of charge, to review!  As if that wasn't generous enough, she also offered to host a giveaway for my readers!  So one of you lucky ladies gets to try Buttons Diapers too.

Buttons Diapers are AI2 diapers (I believe, I am not a diaper expert, but there are two pieces, and no pocket, so I think all in two is an accurate description...).  They consist of a PUL cover and snap-in inserts.  They are one size diapers, fitting babies from 9-35 lbs.  There are daytime inserts to use in the daytime (DUH!), which are microfiber with a fleece layer on top so the baby stays dry, but not to dry.  The nighttime inserts are thicker, and are only made of microfiber.  They are designed to snap in between the cover and the daytime liner for extra nighttime protection.

One of the great things about Buttons Diapers are that they are affordable.  It costs $11 for a cover, $3.50 for a daytime insert, and $5.00 for a nighttime insert.  For $240 you can have enough diapers to diaper your baby from birth (if you have a big baby) to potty training.  Which is a GREAT deal compared to disposable, and even compared to other cloth diapers.

Buttons Diaper covers are one size, but the inserts are in two sizes, depending on which rise position you need.

Awesome things about Buttons Diapers:

  • Double layer PUL (this is something I have not ever seen before, and you can feel its much thicker)
  • Double gussets to keep in the "poopsplosions"
  • Super easy to use - just snap in the insert, no folding, pinning or stuffing

So is this the perfect diaper?  Well I am not sure there is a perfect diaper, but this one is pretty awesome!  If there is anything about this diaper that I feel is less than ideal it is that it is SUPER thick with both inserts.  However, I am not a pro-diaperer, so this could be a problem with ALL overnight diapers.  In all honesty I don't really cloth diaper at night.  Miss Baby is a pee-er and while both the Buttons Diapers and double stuffed pockets have not leaked when she wears them overnight, I have noticed she tends to wake up more at night in a cloth diaper than a disposable.  Since I enjoy whole nights of sleep, I stick to what works.  The diaper also gaps a little at the waist, but it hasn't had any effect on the leakproof-ness of the diaper.

Overall I am really happy with the diaper.  It is cute, hasn't leaked, and it seems comfortable.  Also, the family behind Buttons Diapers are Christians, which makes me super happy to work with them.  The company is based in Washington, and the diapers are made in China (which is kind of to bad, but these days most things are made in China, so you can't really hold that against the diaper).

(I took a bunch of pictures, which I will add tomorrow, but tonight I need to get to bed.  We got a new baby in the house this evening, and I have no idea how well he will sleep.)

You can purchase Buttons Diapers on their website.

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
