You've Decided to Cloth Diaper...Now What? {A Thanks Mama Review & Giveaway}

**Product received for review.

The easy part is done- you've made the decision to cloth diaper...Now comes the fun part, building up your diaper stash! You've searched the web, asked cloth diapering friends and researched until you're blue in the face trying to figure out which diapers are the best and have come up with a million different answers.

For this review, Thanks Mama was kind enough to send me their Favorite Easy To Use Cloth Diaper Sampler. This sampler features two pocket diapers that are very popular in the cloth diapering world. Pocket diapers are a great option for many- easier to use that flats and covers, but still allowing to adjust absorbency for nighttime diapers or heavy wetters. Included in my sampler was a Bumgenius 4.0 in Dazzle and a Fuzzibunz Perfect Size in Candy Apple. I was already familiar with and loved both brands (the majority of our stash is Flips & Fuzzibunz One Size Elite), but had never tried these particular styles.


The Fuzzibunz Perfect Size was in many ways like the One Size Elite we already have. Both feature a stay dry layer for baby's skin, waterproof outer layer and microfiber inserts. The biggest difference being that the perfect size does not offer rise adjustments. The perfect size also includes only one insert, sized to fit. Typically, I tend to prefer one size diapers, but I actually discovered that compared to the OS of the same brand, I actually prefer this. It was a much trimmer fit and just seemed to work better for our little miss. I actually even went with the medium size even though our little miss is 2 pounds shy of the minimum weight of 15 pounds. Still, it works well now and I know will be even better once she's a bit bigger.




The Bumgenius 4.0 is a one size pocket diaper that fits babies from 7 pounds to 35 pounds. They include both a one size insert and a newborn insert. The newborn insert is perfect by itself for smaller babies, and serves as a great doubler for nighttime diapers for bigger babies. I love the unique snap down feature of the one size insert, allowing for the perfect fit, regardless of rise. And it works wonderfully. If you've wondered why Bumgenius is among the most popular brands in the cloth diapering world, it's because they truly are great diapers...for our girl, they have one of the best fits, offer plenty of absorbency and just work really well. The 4.0 is no different!

Overall, we were happy with both diapers in the sampler and loved being able to try out two great diapers for our daughter. And this is only one of the sampler options available at Thanks Mama. All are wonderful and feature great diapers, giving you options of gender, closure type and size. They allow you to try out different styles, and when you find a style you love...you can buy those from Thanks Mama too!! (Not to mention all your other natural baby needs!)
