Who loves fluff? I do! And I am addicted to it. So I am very happy to pass along one of my findings to my readers.
When I first decided to cloth diaper my baby (before she was born) I was looking at all the different diapers and all the different styles, colors, prices, and everything else that comes along with that. I had cloth diapered my oldest (who is almost 11!) but at that time I knew about nothing more than prefolds and covers. But I did know one diaper I just HAD to have was one with Tinkerbell on it. And I sure found one.
I did a Google search for Tinkerbell diaper. And it lead me to an Etsy shop. In this Etsy shop was one of the cutest newborn cloth diaper I had seen. The only catch....it was a fitted. I knew then that I would have to use a cover and was really sad. But I bought it anyways. I mean how could I pass it up for under $10?? It was a second but I had no idea what that meant. Apparently it had rolling elastic somewhere. If it worked I did not care. It was called a FattyCakes diaper. Again I had no idea what that meant.
So I got the diaper in the mail (a couple weeks later cause it came from Canada) and I was looking it up and down. I thought it was SO cute. I ran into my room and grabbed a Cabbage Patch doll JUST so I could see what it looked like. I also wanted to figure out how to use it cause it was a snap diaper. I have never used one of those before. My Cabbage Patch doll looked so cute.
Finally, the day came when my baby girl came into this world and I was thrilled I would get to see this cute little diaper on her little bum. She was 2 weeks old when I finally decided to put it on her. Why did I wait so long? Well I wanted to make sure all that nasty black poo was gone and was not gonna stain my precious diaper. So I finally put it on..and OH GOSH so cute!! I thought it was so cute that I made sure that she had her newborn pictures done in THAT diaper.
Well weeks went by. My little girl was growing more and more. I knew that diaper would not last forever so I went back to the Etsy shop and it was empty. Oh boy was I sad. I then started searching HIGH AND LOW for this lady and for more diapers. I finally ran across her on Facebook. Not sure how I ended up there but I did. I told her I had ordered the Tinkerbell diaper from Etsy and was looking for more...and yes more Tinkerbell. So she sent me a few pics of more Tinkerbell fabric she had. I quickly ordered up another diaper.
This time I was sent a black FattyCakes Tinkerbell diaper size small. I quickly washed it and got it ready and put on my little girl. Well it was a tad big. See the newborn diaper still fit her...even at 12 lbs! But I waited patiently to put her in the small. I mean really did I want her to grow up that fast. However, by the time she was 13 lbs the rise was to low so I had to go to the small. And yay did it fit her well.
So I went back and asked about more diapers. She sent me over to her Hyena Cart store called My Diaper Addiction. I giggled. I mean seriously..MY DIAPER ADDICTION?? Perfect name!! I looked around her store and found a medium Tinkerbell diaper. I quickly snatched it up. I mean she is JUST now able to wear it but I HAD to have it then.
I became a quick FAN of My Diaper Addiction. Then one day she announces she was working on a new diaper. I quickly put my hands up and said OH I WILL TEST!! And you know what, that was one of my best decisions. She was testing a diaper for a skinny minny baby! And I sure had one of those. So for 3 weeks I waited for this tester diaper...and of course it was TINKERBELL!!
Well in between the time she made my diaper and the time I got the diaper in my little girl decided to get a little "meaty". I had ordered a small diaper. I was in fear that this diaper would not work or fit. But guess what?? It did!! It fit so well. It was like a glove :) I mean it had great rise, didn't bulk up all over the place, and held everything in..for AWHILE!! The first time I used it I have to admit that I did not even prep it. I was just to darn excited. And I was amazed that it took FOREVER to notice it was wet. I mean I kept touching it and it was never wet.
I gave my high praises to the owner and maker of this diaper...which is named Skinny Butt! I quickly asked when I could get another one. She did a restocking shortly after that and I ordered 2 more. I ordered a medium size and a large size. I mean I did not have intentions on the large one but there was a print that I just HAD to have. And guess what....neither diaper was TINKERBELL. The medium was Todoki and the large was an Asian print.
Well I am so ADDICTED that I just bought another one...and this one IS Tinkerbell. And I can not wait to get it.
SO here is my opinion. While the FattyCakes diapers I have are great and all I prefer the Skinny Butts 100% over them. I like the way they look on my little girl. I think the absorbency is so much better. I like the positioning of the diaper and the fact that it is not as bulky but does a better job. SO I highly recommend all you mamas to go out and buy one...I promise you will love it!
Would you like to try one of the BEST fitted diapers out there? Well here is your chance!
