The Great Canadian Cloth Diaper Blog Hop! #canadalovescloth (CAN Only)

Welcome to the Great Canadian Cloth Diaper Hop, hosted by

Each amazing Canadian blogger participating has a great cloth diaper prize for you to win, worth at least $20, so after you enter mine, be sure to hop around to all the others in the linky! I am thrilled to have some wonderful Canadian bloggers on board and this couldn't have happened without all their support and from our incredible GRAND PRIZE sponsors!

The Grand Prize is Worth ~$145 Includes ALL of the Following:


One Custom Diaper from Butt-Ons Cloth Diapers (Custom value can be up to $32. SYOF (Send Your Own Fabric), or any available print for a OS Hybrid Fitted, or  a Right-On-Night-On night-time Hybrid Fitted)


The SAHM/WAHM behind Butt-Ons is Hollee, from the small town of Alexandria, Ontario. Her amazing toddlers were born 17 months apart, and they keep her (incredibly!) busy and young. She switched them to cloth diapers after having major sensitive skin issues, and found that even the PUL in certain diapers irritated them. Her sister introduced her to hybrid fitteds, and she started making diapers for her kids. She was quickly asked to make some for friends/relatives/as baby shower gifts, and Butt Ons was born!  While there are different Butt Ons, including Itty Bitties for newborns and Right-On-Night-Ons (RONOs) for night-time, every single Butt On is a hybrid fitted diaper, giving loads of absorbency while maintaining breathability for those tender little bums.  While most hybrid fitted diapers have inserts that snap in, Butt Ons inserts lay in, providing a trimmer fit, and the ability to move the insert to where you need absorbency the most! Hollee is always on the lookout for fun and unique prints, and every single diaper is quality-controlled and checked before it goes out the door.

One Funky Fluff Bamboo Fusion 3-in1 Diaper from Lil' Monkey Cheeks (Winners choice of colour or print)

One Night Time Package from Snappy Nappies (Winners choice of boy/girl/gn colour or print) The Night Time Package includes one fluffy, thirsty charcoal bamboo fleece inner and 2+3 charcoal bamboo/microfiber insert and one heavy wetter insert made of a super absorbent Zorb 2.0 core sandwiched between 2 layers of organic bamboo fleece, with an extra layer of zorb 2.0 where it counts for boys and for girls.

Funky Fluff Fusion Bamboo 2.0 3-in-1 Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway

(the amazing ladies at Funky Fluff provided me their product free for the purposes of this review, & Canada Cloth Diapers, however all thoughts and opinions provided are my own)
I was very excited to be approached by Canada Cloth Diapers & Funky Fluff to do this review. Funky Fluff was one of those brands I have myself read a lot about and have seen around a ton lately online and in one of my favourite local cloth diaper stores Two Mothers. They seem to have shot up in popularity the past two years and I was perplexed by the 3-in-1 claim. I was further intrigued (and excited) when two close friends of mine also chose to use Funky Fluff as their starter stash of choice. I went into this review curious and actually quite skeptical. Turns out, Funky Fluff is a diaper that I would absolutely recommend having at least one of in your stash (or more haha). 

THE RUN DOWN

3-in-1 Fusion Diaper *designed to be used as an "All-in-1", "All-in-2" AND "pocket diaper"
One Size (fits approximately 7lbs-35lbs)
Waterproof PUL Outer (polyurethane laminated polyester)
Bamboo Terry Inner (80% bamboo viscose and 20% polyester)
1x Small Soaker - 4 layers of bamboo blend terry (80% bamboo viscose and 20% polyester) 
1x Large Soaker - 5 layers of bamboo blend terry (80% bamboo viscose and 20% polyester)
Double Snaps Including Cross Over 
Waterproof Strip across the top/wait of the diaper (significantly reduces leaks from the front)
2 x 4 rise settings 

Manufactured in China *chosen using extensive research using a strict/selective process 
*Also available in a Stay Dry 3-in-1 System*


How Funky Fluff Describes "3-in1"
Pocket Diaper - stuff the soaker inside to use as a pocket diaper
AI2 - lay the soaker on top and snap in place to use as an AI2
AIO - snap the soaker completely inside the pocket to use as an AIO

THE JUDGEMENT


Absorbency ***+/****
Very happy with the bamboo in terms of the extra absorbency properties, but I was a bit on the fence on this one because I have a heavy wetter. At my house we absolutely use both inserts all the time during the day because the 'heavy' 5layer insert alone is not enough for my super soaker. The pocket feature does however make it easy to customize additional absorbency. We don't use pocket diapers at night at my house, but if you have a 'normal' night time wetter you could probably get away with it stuffing something heftier inside. The inserts are 4 & 5 layer bamboo terry and crazy trim, but don't seem to be quite enough for us at naps or long daytime stretches.

Aden + Anais Dream Blanket Giveaway (Can & US)


Hosted by:

Special Thanks to our Co-Hosts:

I never discovered Aden + Anais until my first was almost 6months old, and only the amazing swaddle blankets (by far better to swaddle with than anything else and I tried almost everything). I didn't even see a dream blanket in person until after my second was born, and boy did I fall in LOVE! So big, so soft and actually worth every penny! Will last birth to toddler no problem, and is especially great for mamas like me with cold weather most of the year.

Aden + Anais dream blankets are 5 layers of soft, pillowy muslin. Muslin is lightweight and breathable, making it a great option even for newborns, giving parents a peace of mind. It's nature makes it practical even in the warmer weather, and perfect for the mild temperatures of spring!
