The Natural Baby Review and Giveaway


First of all, I adore Autumn's blog All About Cloth Diapers. It's a great source of information.

Recently I was reading one of her posts and someone commented about The Natural Baby's Cloth Diaper Trial Package, and I thought, what a great thing to try!!

I have a hard time keeping my baby dry at night time, she is a heavy duty wetter, and she sleeps for so long at night. So this was the perfect opportunity to try out some diapers for night time.

The details: The trial package costs $10, and you get to choose any of the diapers that The Natural Baby has in their store. You get to try them out for two weeks, your two weeks start the day you receive the package. The owner, Rebecca, even sends you a note to remind you when your two weeks are coming to a close. Whatever you decide to not keep you just package up and send it back. Super simple :)

In my trial package:
Thirsties Duo Diaper
Fuzzibunz Perfect Size
bumGenius 4.0 with Velcro

My thoughts: Thirsties Duo Diaper- I honestly loved this diaper. It was an amazing fitted diaper. I really wanted to buy it, but my hubby lectured me about having too many diapers, hehe. It fit great, I never had a leak, and the diaper had a perfect spot to add hemp inserts when needed.

Fuzzibunz Perfect Size- I was more impressed with the perfect size than I was with Fuzzibunz's one size. It was nice and wide in the crotch, so we didn't have any leaks, but I really disliked that there was only a hip snap and one top snap, unlike with the one size. I'm not totally sure it really made much difference though...

bumGenius 4.0 with VELCRO- I've made my dislike of velcro no secret on this blog. I don't really buy anything with velcro, and I don't have any one size diapers with velcro, I simply don't like it very much. But I'll admit I was intrigued, I have a friend who prefers velcro to snaps, and I was very curious as to what's so great about velcro. And I am here to tell you all that I kind of prefer velcro. It makes such a nice snug fit, the velcro on the bumGenius is very thick, so I wasn't worried about Audrey pulling it off. And best of all, I can change her anywhere extremely easily with velcro, those silly mobile 1-year-olds! :) I kept this diaper.

I also kept my hemp inserts, I love me some Thirsties Hemp Inserts!! They are a night time neccesity.

I enjoyed my experience with The Natural Baby, Rebecca was very fun to work with. They ship fast, and they included a free sample of Country Save laundry detergent. And luckily for me, Rebecca was up for doing a giveaway!!
