Cloth Diaper Friday and Boys’ Week at the same time – oh it’s just too much. How will I ever manage?
Just. Soak up. The cuteness.I have been overly-practical in my cloth diapering. I felt I had to buy “basics” to make sure they worked well. Relax, I told myself, get some cute diapers!
Like the ones from Chubbie Bums Heirlooms on Etsy! Steph, the owner, CD-ed her son over 30 years ago because he was allergic to disposables. 21 years later, when her son had a baby with terrible rashes, Steph tried to convince the parents to use cloth. They weren’t into it, so Steph started using cloth on the baby anyway. But local prefolds were cheaply made, and online diapers too expensive.
Steph is a seamstresss, and she had a brainchild: Chubbie Bums Heirlooms – Steph provides quality, affordable cloth diapers to entice people to want to use cloth. Then makes them so cute they are irrisistable!
Having cute fitteds is like us having sexy underwear. No one really sees it except for our partners, but it makes us feel really good to wear them. ~Steph @CBH
Chubbie Bums features AIOs, covers, and fitteds. At $4.50 each, her fitteds are amazingly affordable! A cover (with embroidery) for just $10.50 is a steal. And a matching set like the one (left photo) she made for this review – just $17! What an awesome baby shower gift! I am always looking for “under $20” gift ideas!
Steph loves to design looks especially for boys! Boys deserve to look cute too! I love the “tools” set she made for my baby! So “boyish!” (and goes perfect with his new toolset toy!)
The fitted diaper she sent me is soft flannel with sturdy double rows of snaps (that can overlap for good fit!). The diaper is generous in the rear, and has a thick padding sewn between the two layers. You could really stuff this diaper for overnight use!
The cover is lightweight so it doesn’t add bulk to the diaper. Again I was impressed with the sturdy snap construction. There are so many “sizing” options because of the multiple snaps!One thing that is different about this diaper is the DOUBLE elastic around the legs – the trick is the lining with the 2nd elastic part SHOULD be sort of “rolled” toward the outside of the diaper to prevent leaks. That was new for me, because usually when a lining rolls outward, I get leaks, but not with this cover!
Win It: One lucky reader will win a $12.50 Gift Certificate to Chubbie Bums Heirlooms Etsy store! That would buy you either 2 fitteds, OR 1 embroidered cover and pay for most of the shipping. But, Chubbie Bums sells more than cloth diapers – check out her children’s clothing sets!
