It was a happy day for me when Better Bottoms Dypes agreed to sponsor our Green Christmas Blog Hop. Better Bottoms holds a special place in my heart and on One Little Indian Blog, notice the baby in the blog header? The diaper on the baby is modeled after my favorite diaper, a Better Bottoms All-in-Two. About five months ago I decided that I needed some WAHM diapers in our stash, I love supporting WAHM businesses so naturally that would carry over to my cloth diaper obsession. I did a lot of research into what the best bang for my buck would be, I had heard some horror stories about WAHM diapers and leak issues and I frankly didn’t want to waste my money.
I saw someone post about Better Bottoms and how much they loved the diapers and when checking out their Facebook Page I noticed that not only were they very affordable but adorable too. That is how my relationship with Better Bottoms began and I have continued to be impressed by our diaper ever since. Sadly, our cloth diaper stash is large as is but if I had one wish it would be to have a stash full of Better Bottoms, alas maybe someday, in the mean time I am so excited to share an opportunity with my readers to win their very own Better Bottoms Diaper!
Better Bottoms AI2 Diapers are by far the most comfortable diaper we have, they have the comfort of a fitted with the function of an AI2. They are not 100% water proof but they may as well be considered so, we hardly ever have a wet outside with ours, changing One Little Indian every 2-3 hours. Do you have a favorite diaper that you cringe when it is “soiled” in? That is my Better Bottoms, which up until yesterday I had planned our wearing of it around One Little Indian’s regular Poo Schedule. Yes Sir, for 5 months I have managed to keep my Better Bottoms poo free, yay! Then yesterday, it happened. I had just finished up snapping pictures for this particular post when I smelled something amiss. You may wonder why I am telling you this right? Well any cloth diaper mom knows that blow outs are frequent with most fitted or AI2 diapers (or at least they seem to be for us), it’s nothing new anymore and I tend to plan accordingly with a pocket diaper or pre-fold. I am happy to report that besides being super cute (isn’t it though?) our Better Bottoms AI2 held in the mess like nobodies business and rinsed super clean too!
Better Bottoms Dypes All-in-Two’s come in two different sizes, Newborn which fits from birth to 16lbs and One Size, fitting from 12 to 35lbs. One Little Indian is 11 months old and weighs roughly 23lbs. As you can see we are only on the 2nd rise and 2 snaps in. I love the way this One Size is constructed and it is VERY roomy. We have mostly One Size diapers in our stash and although they claim to fit up to 30lbs+ One Little Indian is already outgrowing some of them. I don’t anticipate that being an issue with our Better Bottoms, we still have several snaps to let out and a whole rise to boot! Our AI2 is made with a 100% Cotton Outer with a hidden layer of PUL to make it waterproof, by the feel of this diaper you can not tell AT ALL that there is PUL in it which makes me a happy gal, PUL is sometimes uncomfortable. The inners of our AI2 are made of micro-chamois and the snap in soaker is organic hemp/cotton and organic bamboo. The best of all worlds! For having eight layers of protection our inserts and diapers always dry super quick. They are generally done the same time our other covers are done drying. Better Bottoms are made with incredibly craftsmanship, even some of our brand name diapers have started to show signs of wear but as you can see our Better Bottoms still looks brand spanking new.
I made mention of Better Bottoms Dypes being affordable for a WAHM handmade diaper and I would like to go into a bit more detail about that because I believe it is important. You will not find this kind of quality for this price. Better Bottom’s Dypes are a steal at $20 per diaper. There is also an option to send in your own fabric for a custom diaper, I think this is a wonderful option, often times I’ve found fabric that I think would make a perfect cloth diaper. If you send in your own fabric the diaper is only $17! How is that for affordable fluff? You can also purchase affordable extra Soakers and Boosters and even Hip Snap Covers and Cloth Wipes, and a little birdie told me that soon Better Bottoms will be offering Mama Cloth! Who’s got two thumbs and will be first in line to grab some Better Bottoms Mama Cloth? That’s right, this girl! If AI2 Diapers are not your thing Better Bottoms also crafts custom Pocket and Fitted Diapers! I’d love to have a pocket for One Little Indian, pockets are really nice for when you are out and about or for nap times and based on how well I like our AI2 I’m imagining that the Pocket Diapers would be made well enough to withstand night time usage.
