**CLOSED** Sew Is Your Baby: Review & Giveaway


There is nothing better than stumbling upon a shop that carries a huge selection of pocket diapers. Though I've dabbled in all sorts of other styles, snapping pockets really are my favorite to come back to time and time again. With little WAHM businesses cropping up all over the place, it's hard to keep track of where all these diapers come from. But, I have a great new place I'm happy to recommend to you--Michelle from Sew Is Your Baby is offering up an ENORMOUS variety of cute, inexpensive pocket diapers to bulk up your stash! ;)

Sew Is Your Baby, like so many online shops, is a home-run business by mom Michelle. Working from home, Michelle is blessed to spend lots of time with gorgeous baby girl Parker. Cloth diapering was an early passion for Michelle as she and her husband Donovan fought to learn the most they could about it, even though they were the only ones they knew using fluff at the time. After successfully finding their groove and passion for cloth, Michelle took that love to a new level by starting Sew Is Your Baby, an off-shoot of her other sewing and crafting endeavors through SewIsYourFace.com. Having partnered with an off-shore manufacturer, Michelle has literally over a hundred different items in her online catalogue, including pocket diapers, reusable flannel baby wipes, leggings, pants, and accessories.

Up for review, Michelle sent me a minky pocket diaper in the gorgeous, feminine Pink Butterflies & Roses print. I've had mixed feelings about minky diapers in the past, so I was curious to see what I thought of this particular diaper. As soon as I unpacked it, I was impressed. The materials and snaps were of good quality, and minky was soft without being overly thick and bulky. The inside of the diaper was a smooth and soft microsuede. The diaper came with a soft, microfibre insert to stuff in the pocket.

I love this diaper and have absolutely no complaints or reservations about it! It fits a lot like my other favorite pocket diapers (Kawaii, Hipkiddo, Dinkledooz) in that it has great fit & stretch, as well as square tabs that can be crossed over for an even better fit. This one-size diaper has an adjustable rise and will likely fit most babies from 8-40lbs.

The pocket stuffs from the back with a cinched, elasticized opening that lays flat without ever gaping or having excess fabric sneaking out the back to cause wicking. The microsuede lining remained soft (though it does get the tiniest amount of pilling from time to time, especially if there is any velcro elsewhere in your load!) and was SUPER easy to clean. I always prefer microsuede to microfibre when cleaning solids off the diaper, especially as I don't use liners or a sprayer and simply rely on the shake & scrape method for removing my toddler's poop! The microsuede dumps SO easily into the toilet and washes perfectly clean (without stains!) every time.

This diaper fits great, had no leaks, and doesn't leave red marks

I love how soft & girly this diaper is, and Michelle honestly has so many other great prints to choose from (my other favorites for a girl would definitely be the Hieroglyphics and Pastel Swirls minky prints!). Although I'm ALWAYS a square tab lover, she also carries round tab pocket diapers for those who might prefer their look or fit on their little ones. Basically, there is something for everything at her shop, which is great! Prices typically range from $13.00-$14.00 per diaper and far less for other items & accessories. She still also offers free shipping to the USA, as well as a variety of package deals, and she offers a 30 day money back guarantee on all her diapers!
