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!
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.
BUY 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.*
