When given the opportunity to share her products with a fresh audience, Cathy generously and enthusiastically sent a whole kit of terrific products my way to share with you all. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the sample kit--the packaging was all very professional, neat, and cute, and best of all, I was able to recycle or reuse every bit of packaging (cardboard went to the curbside, and the sweet, dainty ribbons I kept in my odds and ends drawer for wrapping, etc). In total, Cathy sent me the following items to review for you all: two all-in-one Blissful Booty cloth diapers (in "Buttercream" and "Celery"), two sample sized vials of wipe water concentrate (in "Milk & Honey" and "Sweet Apple Cheeks"), a wipe solution spray bottle, a 10-pack of 100% cotton cloth wipes, and a diaper pail liner!
Small - 9-16 lbs
Medium - 14-23 lbs
Large - 21-35 lbs
Toddler - 35lbs+
I'm very impressed to see newborn diapers on the list as well! This original design of the Blissful Booty diaper doesn't disappoint and made me understand why this classic version is still around after many years. From the website, here are all the features that I can vouch for:
- Back and front elastic gathers to prevent leaks
- Soft and sturdy Hook and Loop closure for a snug fit
- Luxurious, stain resistant inner lining made of no-pill microfleece, that wicks moisture away from sensitive baby skin
- Snug inner and outer leg casings for ultimate leak protection
- Soft, waterproof cloth outer cover; No more hot rubber pants!
- Super absorbent microfiber terry inner soaker
- Large, soft, fold back laundry tabs to prevent the dreaded "diaper snake" when washing
- Crossover front tabs for thin babies, or when you are transitioning to a new size
|the laundry tabs are fabulous and never came unstuck in the wash|
|the double leg casings meant we never saw a single leak|
Overall, this is a terrific diaper that fits well, wicks moisture well, remains soft after multiple washes, and holds up well in the wash (also, the lining really is amazingly stain resistant!).
In tandem with the wipe solution, I was very excited to try out Blissful Booty's 10 pack of 100% cotton cloth wipes. I love that their wipes have two different textures to them--one side is a smooth, combed cotton (feels like flannel), and the other side is a rougher surface for stronger wiping capabilities (like very fine terry). This two-sided approach gave great options for different diaper changing needs (including just a simple pat dry!). I love that they are all-natural cotton but will give you a heads up that I hadn't thought of--with the natural oils in the fabrics, they did have some repelling issues after only 1 wash, so two washes were necessary to get them at a better absorbancy point. So, just a heads up--when you get these, you'll have to fight your case of being impatient, and let them run through the wash twice before you use them, or you'll have water slicking right off of them as I did ;) I was glad to see this, though, as it tells me just how natural and unprocessed the fibres really were, still having their own natural oils in them! A great sign of a true, natural product! I should also mention that, when folded in half, these wipes fit PERFECTLY inside an old disposable wipes container. This makes it very handy to store them or even submerge them in solution or water if you'd prefer.
