Fluffy Fridays: Booty Buns Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway

*Post Updated 4/24*

Cloth diapers……is it possible to have too many? Personally I don’t think so! I love trying out new brands and finding new features that I like. Plus, there’s nothing better than getting a package of fluff in the mail! Sounds crazy, but it’s true and I’m sure other CDing mamas will vouch for me on that! Ha!

GO GREEN ♥ GIVE CHARITY

I first came across Booty Buns Cloth Diapers when I was a participating blogger in the Booty Buns Go Green Give Charity Event. I rarely participate in giveaways where I haven’t tried the product, so I knew that I needed to get one so I could properly review it for you. I also just wanted to make sure that this was a diaper I could recommend to you guys. Well, Booty Buns is definitely a cloth diaper that I’d recommend! So before I get to the review, I think it’s important for you all to understand how generous this company is. For every cloth diaper sold, one is donated to a family in need, both in the US and internationally. They’ve partnered up with Operation Showers of Appreciation and are currently looking for babies with disabilities to offer donations to. You can find out more here.

Shannon, the mom behind Booty Buns, sent me their One Size (OS) Pocket Diaper to try on Grady. Now, lots of OS diapers say they’ll fit from birth to potty training…….and unfortunately that’s not necessarily true. But Booty Buns claims to fit babies from 3-45 pounds. I don’t know of any other OS diaper that says it’ll fit at 3 pounds. So you can bet I’m excited to try this diaper out on my newborn in June. After seeing the diaper in person, I think it will fit an average sized newborn baby well, but with lots of bulk. I’m really curious to see this diaper on a premie, so if you know of anyone who’s done so I’d love to hear.

At 25 pounds, this diaper fits Grady really well. He’s on the last set of rise snaps, but he’ll be able to continue wearing it like this for awhile as he still has lots of room in the waist snaps and then he’ll be able to wear the diaper with the rise snaps completely undone for quite sometime, too. This is a diaper that I’m positive will fit him until he potty trains unlike some other brands we have in our stash. There are a ton of snaps on the waist, plus hip and cross over snaps, so we’re really getting a good fit. And when you get a good fit, you don’t have any leaks! We haven’t had any leaks with the diaper yet and I love the extra protection the double gussets offer for poo explosions. Grady’s become a pretty heavy wetter recently, so we’ve been using both inserts with no problems. They’ve got snaps so you can snap them in, but I never do because the diaper is open on both ends and the inserts will agitate out in the wash if left unsnapped. I’d really love to see the inserts labeled with a tag for Booty Buns, as I have a hard time telling some diaper inserts apart, and I’m super picky about the right inserts going with the right diapers. Are any of you guys like that?

One of the neat things about this diaper is that it comes with a matching wipe and flannel liner. I love the wipe, but I don’t really see the need for the liner. Flannel liners can be great for protecting your diapers when you’re using non-cloth diaper safe rash creams or for ease of clean up of poo, but I just don’t use them very often. I’ve never had to use a non-cloth diaper safe cream and if I did, I think I’d switch to sposies as to not take the chance of ruining any diapers. Liners move around in the diaper and you run the risk of getting cream where you don’t want it. As for poo clean up, I’m completely fine using just the sprayer and the liner just adds another step to the whole process. I’ve also heard of people using liners when their baby is sensitive to the material of the diaper, so if that’s a problem you have then maybe the liner would be beneficial for you. I’ve added the liner to my wipes stash and it’s working great for that purpose.

Picture of Booty Buns Cloth DiapersBUY IT: You can purchase a Booty Buns OS Pocket Cloth Diaper, like the one I reviewed, on the Booty Buns website and at selected retailers for $25.50 plus $6 shipping for a total of $31.50. That’s a little more than most other pocket diapers, but you have to take into consideration that your getting a wipe, a liner, and that it should fit your baby no matter what their size, and you don’t get that with other diapers. You can also purchase in bulk to save money. They’ve got several different sized packages to choose from. Make sure you follow Booty Buns on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on any deals!

*I’ve recently become aware, through some comments left on this post, of some discussion regarding Booty Bun’s customer service. While I stand behind my review, and genuinely like the diaper, I understand that not everyone will have the same experience as I have. I’m currently looking into the situation and will update as needed.*

Comments

  1. My favorite is Pink a booty.

  2. Justice Montgomery says:

    I really like the colors that booty bums offers. They seem so much more vibrant than some of the other CD companies has. Royal Booty is my favorite. I have been wanting it since the day I first saw it. It has passed the DH TEST for acceptable purples to put on our boy!! LOL

  3. Tamara Sz says:

    I really love the large size range of this diaper. I have a 4 yo who still wets at naps and night and he is growing out of most of his diapers. This may be the answer!

  4. Stephanie Polen Reed says:

    I love the love booty and the lucky booty. Fun colors! And I love that it comes with it’s own wipe. How cool?! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Felicia R says:

    My favorite color is the night night booty (Black)!

  6. Kristen D says:

    I LOVE how they donate a diaper for every diaper they sell. Not very many companies do that any more, and it’s just wonderful of them! I wish other companies would follow suit.

  7. You’re so right about the excitement of the fluffy package coming in the mail! I never thought I’d get so excited about diapers!

  8. I love the colors they offer, and the size range advertised is amazing! Plus I think it’s really cool they donate diapers too for each one purchased. I’d LOVE to win one–I’ve been wanting to try them so much!!

  9. I love the fact that they donate diapers to those in need!

  10. I like the idea of an OS that fits a tiny baby, since I’m still not sure how big mine will be when he gets here in a few months. Too big diapers has been my concern.

  11. I like the night night booty.

  12. Amy Poore says:

    Love the pink…but mostly love that they help sick childen/ families by donating diapers!

  13. Andrea Edwards says:

    I love moon booty and pun’kin booty, and I love all the charitable work BB does

  14. I would love to own a booty buns diaper they look like they fit better than the other cloth diaper brands and they go up to a bigger size than the others so they will last a lot longer than the other all in one cloth diapers

  15. What a commitment, to donate one for every one sold. No wonder they cost what they do ;)

  16. I love that they donate a diaper for every diaper sold. I think if every mom tried out a cloth diaper they would never go back to disposables…so this is a great way to get the word out on cloth diapering :)

  17. I am pregnant with my first and it seems like these will be the diapers I will use. I know they all fit differently, but these seem to be the most versatile!

  18. I love the fact that they are a usa company and that not only do they donate for each diaper sold, they host baby showers for women who’s husbands are deployed and being a marine wife, I know what a gift that could truly be.

  19. I love how bright the colors are!

  20. I like that these are a true one size. Most of my so-called OS diapers don’t fit for at least the first 6-8 weeks.

  21. Jennifer Flores says:

    I love all of their bright colors!

  22. Melissa H. says:

    I love Cutie Booty! I think it’s great that they donate, too.

  23. I love how they donate a diaper for every one they sell. Ah.mazing, And the colors are so beautiful, I have just been dying to try one.

  24. I love the colors (and the names of the colors!)

  25. How cool that this company donates a diaper to someone in need for each that they sell!! Such an amazing way to serve.

    I think their mission is amazing… I love supporting companies like this. Doing good in the world! I love the pink a booty btw… such cute names for the colors :)

  30. I love the bright colors, but mostly I love how they give back to help…like the little girl who needed diapers.

  31. I love these diapers! They have quickly moved to the top of my favorites list.

  32. I love the purple one!

  33. Love the variety of colors and their at home giveaway mission

  34. I love Punkin Booty and Moon Booty. I think Booty Buns has such a great mission and a wonderful heart behind the company. I can’t wait to try one.

  35. I love these diapers.

  36. I love that they donate one cloth diaper for every cloth diaper sold to children in need. That is so generous and my favorite booty buns diaper color is lucky booty.

  37. Jennifer L. says:

    I love that they are helping out others by donating diapers.

  38. I love the royal booty diaper – and the great color names. =)

  39. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    I love the ‘nana booty! Great Selection of colors!

  42. michelle bardos says:

    love booty :)

  43. Cassie Smith says:

    My favorite is the Royal Booty.

  44. Nikole H. says:

    I am eager to see if the diapers actually work well for newborns. I’m currently working on a newborn stash and diaper that would transition into infant, even toddler-hood would be amazing! ngiraldi at gmail dot com

  45. I love that they donate diapers for diapers purchased. It’s really nice to see a company give back like that, and also helps me justify adding to my cloth stash… I’m helping others, so I should keep buying diapers…. right? :)

  46. Emily Walker Bumgarner says:

    This is one that I will be purchasing regardless! Love the colors and the fact that this diaper will grow with the baby. They keep coming out with better and better cloth diapers! Love this one!

  47. EMMA L HORTON says:

    I LIKE THE YELLOW COLOR

  48. crystle tellerday says:

    i like all the colors they have

  49. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    I love the pink a booty and I love the mission behind their diapers!!

  50. SUMMER PLEWES says:

    i love the catchy names!!! my fave colour is Pun’kin !!

  51. Sharon Doyle says:

    This is an amazing company that puts so much into their product and community. I really like that for each diaper sold one is given to a child in need. Having been in a military family Operation Showers of Appreciation is a huge help. I like several features of these cool diapers, one that they have double leg gussets and two that they are able to fit such a wide range of sizes. I like the Night Night Booty.

  52. Ashley Kline says:

    Its very cool that they truly fit birth til potty training.

  53. Just thought you might be interested in this, considering you did a review of this company. Booty Buns has the worst customer service I have ever heard of!

    http://community.babycenter.com/post/a32788519/problem_with_merchant_booty_buns_cloth_diapers

  54. Angela Hartness says:

    I like the Royal Booty diaper.

  55. The Lucky Booty is the cutest but the Pun’kin Booty has the most amazing name ever. lol

  56. Love the royal booty and night night booty dipes!

  57. This is a ridiculously expensive Alva and as a mother of a micro preemie who was born at 1lb 15 oz and wearing lil joeys since 2.5lbs (and they were HUGE on her), this diaper WILL NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO FITTING A 3lb BABY!!!! As a mother of a micro I am highly offended that she’s supposedly donating to babies with severe medical needs AND lying about what the diaper can fit.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I just spent the morning reading through the Baby Center thread. I do like the diaper I reviewed, but agree that it’s not likely to fit a 3 lb. baby, and I’m completely out of the loop when it comes to Alva’s. I’ve never even heard of that brand before, and will be looking into it further!

  58. Christina C says:

    My favorite color is Pun’kin Booty!

  59. I love the Booty Buns black diaper. So classy!

  60. It’s so great that they donate a diaper for every one they sell.

  61. I LOVE the cutie booty one. ITS yellow! I also love that they were created by a SAHM like myself.

  62. Bridgett zaidi says:

    Night night booty

  63. My favorite colors are Love Booty and Royal Booty. I think it’s wonderful that for each diaper they sell they give one to a family in need.

  64. Kate Garcia says:

    I am glad you were able to read thru the BabyCenter thread. I was happy enough with the diapers to order more but I was extremely unhappy with the customer service and extremely high mark up for an Alva Baby diaper. I have 2 children and it does fit my 26 lb 2 year old good but it is really bulky.

    As a consumer I feel like customer service is often more important than the product itself. I have learned some valuable lessons and even though I do like these diapers, I would NEVER purchase anything from Shannon again. If anyone would like to get more information about what has happened please go to:

    • Thanks for sharing your experience! Hopefully the whole situation gets worked out soon. I think it’s important that my readers get an honest review, so I have updated my post with a disclaimer stating that I’m aware of some customer service issues and have directed them to the comment section for more information. Regarding Booty Buns being an Alva Baby diaper, I really just don’t know and won’t update my post with that information until I’m completely positive. I guess I’ll be buying one to compare! Before the Baby Center Thread, I’d actually never heard of them. I did know that some companies have their diapers made in China to cut costs, but I didn’t know that they’re all the same diaper just with slight variations. I’ll be looking into it! Maybe it’ll turn into a diaper rebranding post! :)

  65. Love the Pun’Kin booty and the Cutie booty! I’ve been wanting to try CDing, but my husband refuses since he thinks I will hate it!

  66. I love that it is open on both ends to agitate in the washing machine:)

  67. susan varney says:

    very bright colors i love them mverno@roadrunner.com

  68. Love the lucky booty

  69. LOVE the Moon Booty! Beautiful :)

  70. I like the names of the diapers, very creative. Love booty, night night booty.

  71. I love the bright colors – red is my favorite!

  72. royal booty!

  73. Love that they come with a matching wipe!

  74. Its so awesome to donate cloth since they can be used for SOOOO long!

  75. Love the many color choices!

  76. Debbie Kennedy says:

    I love the colours they have available – especially the orange. It’s a nice change from green if you don’t know if baby’s gonna be a boy or a girl. Great variety!

  77. i love ‘lucky booty’ diaper!

    annae07 at aol dot com

  78. My favorite color is moon booty!

  79. I’m trying to build up a stock of cloth diapers and start cloth diapering my youngest because I’m tired of buying diapers (been doing it for 7 years STRAIGHT!!) I love their Moon Booty color!!!

  80. Oh so adorable! Fingers crossed! :)

  81. P.S. I don’t know why but I can’t grab your “fluffy friday” button, it works with any other but that one

  82. I’ve been hearing so much about Booty Buns recently, and I am so impressed that they give away a diaper for every single diaper they sell. So now, not only can we feel good about our own decision to use cloth and our own impact on the environment with each diaper we use, we can also know that we are helping another family do the same thing. I love it.

  83. I like the night-night bootie!

  84. Denise Taylor says:

    I love the Royal Booty! Purple diapers aren’t very common :(

  85. Candi parent says:

    Super excited to be learning so many new things about babies. Can’t wait for our new bundle to arrive ( adopting, so we’re just waiting for a call)

  86. LOVE the pink!

  87. Breanne says:

    I love Lucky Booty

  88. Megan Ream says:

    I am so excited to try these diapers! They look AMAZING!!!

  89. Jennifer M says:

    I really like the Pun’kin Booty

  90. I can’t believe how much you give. Not only to those that truly need but also in the form of giveaways to those that it definitely could use the help.

    LOVE the bright colours!

  91. Carolyn K. says:

    I like the Royal Booty diaper!

  92. Looks great!!

  93. There are so many good things about these diapers! My favorites are their size range and the fact that every sale also results in a donation!

  94. Leanne Hill says:

    I love that they donate one diaper to a family in need for every diaper sold. more companies need that policy.

  95. Theresa F says:

    I really like that they have so many colors to choose from.

  96. Sharon Aitchison says:

    Amazing!! I’m long passed being a new mother, but have babies in my life. I understand the need for today’s working Moms to want to use disposables, but I’m a cloth diaper fan from way back!!! I love the concept! Since a baby is due in our lives this August, I would LOVE to win this and give it to the new parents, encouraging them to use the washable cloth diaper whenever possible. I cringe to think of how many millions of diapers sit in land fills hoping to melt away some day. PS: The moon blue color is tremendous for the little boy expected in August!

  97. It’s great that they donate diapers to babies in need

  98. Great colors! The Love Booty and Cutie Booty are super fun.

  99. Kristi F says:

    I love the Night Night booty color. They have such cute color names.

  100. Farrah Morelli says:

    I love the bright colors, especially the pink one!

  101. I love that they donate diapers to those in need!

  102. I love the night night booty! So sleek looking. (:

  103. I think it’s wonderful that they’re donating diapers: “We have decided to donate our cloth diaper lifetime supplies to babies with debilitating diseases & disabilities. Many families that have children with debilitating diseases and disabilities have so many things to worry about including doctor visits & bills and a whole host of other things. DIAPERS SHOULD BE THE LAST THING THESE FAMILIES HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT.”

  104. Great colors!! I also love that they look so easy to use and dont have blow-outs (yay).

  105. Roxann Clark says:

    I love that they donate a diaper for every diaper sold.

  106. deltaflute says:

    royal booty

  107. When you truly believe in the cause you are donating to, it makes the hard work so much easier. I am impressed by their continuing commitment to help others.

  108. It’s wonderful that Booty Buns donates so many diapers to families in need. Wish I could afford them. lol

  109. Jennifer says:

    I love how Booty Buns have such vibrant colors – my favorite is the ‘Pink A Booty’

  110. Jessica says:

    Booty Buns are nice diapers. I love how they go to a larger poundage than most multi-sized diapers.

  111. Theresa Gentosi says:

    Donating diapers is so cool!

  112. I like the Lucky Booty color! :-)

  113. I am about to have baby #4, and more cloth diapers would be wonderful!

  114. I love that Booty Buns is working to donate diapers. It’s such a heartfelt gesture and really helps others out.

  115. Yesenia De La Paz says:

    Im just getting started with my cloth diaper stash so i dont really know this brand but from everyones comments it sound like they have great colors… I would like a nice black diaper….

  116. I love the names of the colors.. specifically Night Night and Snow <3

  117. tamara ellis says:

    Saves a lot of money and one more thing to do to go green!

  118. I think it is great that they donate diapers

  119. I like midnight booty.

  120. I like the purple one!

  121. Jenny R says:

    I had a 3 pound baby, and there’s no way it’ll fit a teeny baby like that. I see the misunderstanding however. It can get down to a teeny tiny little waist and leg hole openings, but the width and bulkiness at the crotch is WAY too big. The poor thing would practically be doing the splits. Oh well. I guess it’s not too different from the nicu nurses putting a ridiculously large 9-month shirt on my boy while he was there.

  122. Deborah Wallin says:

    I am so proud of my daughter for choosing to be “green” and use cloth diapers.

  123. samantha clinton says:

    love the night night booty!!

  124. Betty Curran says:

    I’m hoping to win this so I can have ammunition to convince my granddaughter to use cloth diapers when her little one arrives this summer. Cloth is so much more eco-friendly.

  125. i think it’s great that they donate diapers!

  126. Debbie P says:

    I love all the names of their colors!

  127. Wow, their colours are so vibrant!

  128. Yaceni A says:

    I love how booty buns are unique by having vibrant colors and creative names for the colors!
