Little Bare Bum Wear {Review & Giveaway}

Well we are still on our cloth diapering journey.
Some of you thought I would have given up by now but I have not. 
I am actually enjoying it! Except for the added laundry part.. but honestly who enjoys laundry.

Up until now we have been doing prefolds & covers.

However we have now added fitted AIO cloth diapers into the mix, thanks to Little Bare Bum Wear.

We were recently sent these two fitted cloth diapers with velcro closures.












The Ladybug is medium, and the hearts is large.
I prewashed these 3 times as recommended on the wash and care guidelines sent with the diapers. They are wonderful diapers and I enjoyed trying out an AIO {all-in-one) diaper. I was extremely excited when I found out these diapers also have a layer of PUL inside of them , which has been important to me on my cloth diaper experience. As I have talked about before PUL was originally intended for use in the medical field since it provided a perfect non leaking barrier against body fluids that can stand up to the high sanitary heats to keep it staying fresh, and clean. It is also safe around even the softest of skin.




When I became a grandmother in 2010 I began wondering what the future held for my precious Eva Grace and this planet.  What would my part be in helping keep our planet a little better for our Children and someday their Children.  That is how Little Bare Bum Wear was started.


About The Diapers
Besides the fact that they are just plain adorable, they are also eco-friendly, practical, and affordable. These diapers are AIO (all in one) The diapers are made out of flannel with 4 layers of terry towel for absorbancy and one layer of PUL to help keep those bare bums fresh and dry.
Americans throw away 18 billion disposable diapers a year, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).  By using cloth diapers we can help drastically reduce that number.
AIO diapers are the easiest and cleanest way to cloth diaper and are perfect for beginners and veterans alike.  They are the closest thing to a disposable as possible without leaving our carbon footprint. Simply put the diaper on baby and change when soiled or wet. No stuffing, no snapping, no fuss, and one less diapper in the landfill.
 Each diaper is able to stay securely on your babies bum with Velcro adhesives making it very easy to design a custom fit.
All diapers have elastic leg gussets to avoid messes ending up anywhere other than the diaper. 



Diaper Sizes
Small: Waist 11 1/2 " to 16" with a 13" rise weight 6-10 lbs 
Medium: Waist 12 1/2 " to 19 1/2" with a 14" rise, weight 10-16 lbs 
Large: Waist 13" to 22" with a 16" 1/2 rise
weight 16- 20 lbs
extra large up to 30 lbs
Each baby varies in sizes and these are just general diaper sizes.

DIAPER CARE

For best results wash with powder-only detergent with the least amount of additives possible. Do not use anything that contains bleach, has whitening agents or says "contains whitening enzymes."
A lot of moms wash with vinegar which helps cut urine smells, as well as keep them fresh and clean.
Tumble dry or sun bleach on the clothes line (this actually helps removes stains as well). Do NOT use fabric softeners. It is recommended drying your diapers in the dryer the first time on high heat.
These diapers get MORE ABSORBANT as time passes. It is recommended you wash these 3-5 times before wearing them.



Diaper Cost
The cost per diaper starting @ $12.95
Cloth diapering may seem expensive at first, but did you know the average American spends up to $2500 dollars in disposable diapers from birth through potty training?
If you buy 6 Little Bare Bum Wear Diapers at every stage from birth to childhood you will spend approximately $300.00. THATS IT! That is a savings of approximately $2200 dollars.
