From Alex at Mommy’s Obsessions:

Diapers are an essential when it comes to raising a baby, because lets face it, your baby can’t be diaperless! One of my biggest pet peeves when it came to diapering Little Mister is that the dirty diaper – whether it be cloth or disposable, ALWAYS stunk up the diaper pail, which in turn stunk up the room! It was frustrating to always walk into Little Mister’s room and have it have a lingering smell, so when it came time to start thinking about a diaper pail for Little Boy’s room, I was determined to find something that didn’t smell!

Ubbi World Diaper Pails are not only sleek with a modern design, but they’re made from steel and don’t stink! Best of all, the Ubbi World Diaper pail is convenient because it doesn’t require a special bag for storing your dirty diapers!

Today Mommy’s Little Miracle is featuring a company that specializes in products that are near and dear to my¬†heart – Buttons Diapers!

If you’ve followed my blog since its conception, then you know it began primarily as a cloth diaper blog. Because of that, whenever I get the chance to post a cloth diaper review, tips, or giveaway, I jump for the chance! It’s returning to my blogging roots.I had the chance to review Buttons Diapers myself, last December. Overall, I was impressed with the quality and what you get for your money. It worked great as a nighttime diapering option for us too. Keep reading for a link to Alex’s (from Mommy’s Obsessions) review. -Elisebet

We made the decision to switch Little Mister from disposable diapers to cloth diapers when he was just 5 months old. At the time I felt it would be a great move for us because of the amount of money we would save from buying disposables! After we built a small stash, I fell in love and began wanting to try out different styles and types of diapers – and that’s when I learned about diaper covers and the various forms of inserts that can be used with them!

Buttons Diapers is a family owned business that features fabulous high quality diaper covers and snap in inserts! Their covers are are soft, leak proof, and offer double gussets around the legs to help keep messes inside of the diapers! The inserts are made from four layers of absorbent microfiber and feature a layer of fleece on top to help wick the moisture away from baby’s skin. After having the opportunity to try out a few of Button’s Diapers, we have fallen in love!

To Purchase: Visit Buttons Diapers and check out their selection of diapers, diaper covers, inserts, and more!

To Win: Mommy’s Obsessions and Buttons Diapers want to give one lucky reader 3 One Size Diaper Covers and 6 Daytime Inserts! Winner has their choice of color(s) for the covers!

CLOSED Giveaway: 10 Funky Fluff cloth diapers

This sponsored post is a collaboration between Funky Fluff, The Pierogie Mama and That Mama Gretchen; they are thrilled to share our cloth diaper love, because they are truly floored by these diapers. I’ve never tried this brand before, so please note that the references to “I” below are from The Pierogie Mama or That Mama Gretchen. Enjoy the reviews below, and don’t miss the giveaway at the bottom of this post! -Elisebet¬†

There’s something new in the cloth diaper world, friends…I’ve raved about Funky Fluff before, and today I’m thrilled to share about their new release…the Funky Fluff Fusion Bamboo 3-in-1 System 2.0! Best of all The Pierogie Mama and I have teamed up for this grand debut and it includes a super thorough review (we’ve seriously tested every dimension of this diaper) and a big, no, ginormous giveaway!

First off, we want to share a bit of the heart behind Funky Fluff, because companies with a purpose and passion speak volumes to us. Funky Fluff was founded by Kathy and Tricia, long time friends with a passion for cloth diapering. They “live, breathe, and LOVE cloth diapering,” and it’s their goal to help other mamas be successful in cloth diapering their children. Together, Kathy and Tricia have cloth diapered 4 boys and have grown their home based, Canadian business through tons of hard work. And their commitment to quality products obviously hasn’t stopped, since they’re debuting a 2.0 version of their popular bamboo cloth diaper. Ready to relish in all the features of the 2.0?

Now, a little introduction before our official reviews … between us both we’ve tried almost 30 different brands of cloth diapers between our 3.5 children (Gretchen’s daughter and son, and Bianca’s daughter and sweet bump due in March). So, when we say we like a certain feature or really trust something about a diaper, we’re not joking. We’ve got A LOT of comparison power. That’s probably why we’re so excited to share Funky Fluff’s 2.0 with you!
First up, Bianca’s thoughts…

I’ve got a pretty trim little miss – at 21 months old, she just tipped the scale at 23 lbs and is about 31 1/2 inches tall. She’s a perfectly proportioned little doll, and her smallish stature has been both a blessing and a difficulty. I love how long clothes last for this girl – she’s still wearing 12 month zippies!

But fitting diapers around her waist in proportion to her height has become a difficulty with her night time diaper, as she still wets a lot at night and you’ve got to find that right balance of fluff and stuff to make sure you can make it through the night.

I’ve been loving the Funky Fluff Bamboo line (both the 1.0 and 2.0s) because the bamboo liner and inserts are extremely thirsty. Parched. When she started to leak out through her ‘tried and true’ night time diapers that had been working for us for over 12 months, I tried the Bamboo Fusion 1.0’s and was immediately relieved! After stripping and repairing velcro (the next step was re-doing elastic that I really don’t think needs it), I was almost ready to try ‘sposies.

Admittedly I was a little apprehensive when the 2.0 version dropped the double gusset feature (because she’s also a side sleeper) but I quickly learned that it wasn’t the double gusset that was saving my biscuits in the middle of the night – it was that awesome bamboo material! Zero leaks and no changes through out the night = a well rested Penny and this preggy mama. Our night time diaper solution is a¬†Funky Fluff Bamboo Fusion 2.0¬†stuffed with one heavy duty bamboo soaker or a light bamboo soaker with booster.

And while I have your ear, can I tell you how much I love the soakers? They are SO dense yet thin – they are by far my favorite stuffer for diapers because they hold so much liquid.

And now, a bit from Gretchen …

Before Max was born, I thought I knew almost everything about cloth diapers. I mean, I’d cloth diapered Jemma for 34 months and gone through many successes and failures as we narrowed down what worked best for us. Then I had a son and I began the learning curve all over again!

Max is almost 17 months and is about to tip the scales at 32 pounds. Pretty much the opposite of Bianca’s petite Penny. If I’ve learned anything about diapering both a son and daughter, I’ve learned that they pee differently (obviously), and this therefore, requires different features to adequately do their job. Funky Fluff covers the gamut thanks to their bamboo lining and inserts in their 3-in-1 system.

It’s definitely hard to find cloth diapers that do their job for chubbier babies. I need a high rise to prevent top leaks and large enough leg elastic that hold without leaving marks. Right now Max wears his Funky Fluff on the widest waist setting. But I’m not worried about outgrowing our Fluff since he’s really starting to run and will most likely gain more height and less weight in the coming year.

I won’t speak too much to the thirst of the bamboo – Bianca sang that praise – but I will say that we too ALWAYS opt for an extra stuffed Funky Fluff 2.0 for naps and long car rides. I will add that there is nothing softer than a bamboo diaper. So, between the amazing absorbancy and the gentle fabric, I pretty much want our whole stash of diapers to be filled with Funky Fluff’s bamboo 2.0 diapers.

My only hope and recommendation for Funky Fluff is that they’ll launch a trainer/pull-up cloth diaper design by the time we’re ready for that transition. I would LOVE to see a pull-up design with bamboo inside and PUL outside … maybe even a bamboo padded underwear. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

The Giveaway:

Ready to add some Funky Fluff to your cloth diaper stash? We couldn’t encourage you more – you won’t be disappointed! You can purchase the Fusion Bamboo 3-in-1 System 2.0 here, or consider saving with the purchase of a bundle. Still on the fence? Maybe consider a Starter Kit so you can compare the bamboo and stay dry options while testing out the reinforcing soakers and boosters.

And now, what you’ve all been holding your breath for … the amazing giveaway to celebrate the launch of the 2.0 version of the Funky Fluff Fusion Bamboo 3-in-1 System!
