Today’s Fluffy Friday is a double feature! First, I’m going to share an awesome cloth diaper store with you all – Irresistibly Green who sent me a Happy Heinys cloth diaper to try on Haley, and then later on today I’ll be back to share some of my favorite products from Thirsties! Both posts will show you what you can win tomorrow during the 3rd annual Merry Fluffy Christmas Event! Are you ready?…….

Irresistibly Green (formerly Greenie Beanie Bottoms) is a cloth diaper store that carries a wide variety of cloth diapers and accessories. In addition, you’ll find other “green” items as well (breastfeeding, mama cloth, teething toys, etc.). Before I make a purchase from a cloth diaper store, I look for 3 things:

(1) Do they offer free or low cost shipping? Irresistibly Green DOES! All US orders over $20 ship free – and I always spend more than $20 when CD shopping.

(2) Are there coupon codes for free stuff? Yep! You can currently use code FALLDIPE to receive a free OS diaper with an order over $5o!

(3) Is there a large enough selection that I can make my purchase at just one store? Yes! I hate having to make purchases at multiple stores if I can do it all at one store! Makes things so much easier on me to just shop and check out once.

Irresistibly Green sent me a Happy Heinys OS Pocket Diaper in Snaps (aplix also available) to try out on Haley. This diaper comes with 2 inserts that you stuff into the opening at the back of the diaper. It’s got 2 rows of snaps with 4 snaps on each side plus crossover snaps. You can adjust the size of the diaper by using the 3 rows of rise snaps to fit babies from 8 to 35 pounds. Happy Heinys has one of the largest collections of colors and prints to choose from with over 35 selections! It would make for a very colorful stash!

I started using the Happy Heinys OS Cloth Diaper on Haley when she was about 10 pounds or so. It probably would have fit her sooner – she’s got chunky legs – but I was still trying to get the most of all the newborn diapers I had bought. At 5 months and 15+ pounds she’s currently using the Happy Heinys on the small rise setting (1 row unsnapped). It fits her great around the legs (no gapping) but most diapers do. Remember – chunking legs. She’s still got a ton of room to grow into it, too. Grady’s about 27 pounds and wears a Happy Heinys on the medium rise setting (the last setting before it’s completely unsnapped). There’s no doubt it’ll fit them both till potty training.

We’ve had a few leaks here and there, but as always, it’s user error. I either forget to put both inserts in (and both kids need both) or  I leave it on too long. Usually just the edge of her onesie is damp – never a complete blow out.

I have both a Happy Heinys in snaps and one in aplix and I much prefer it in snaps. My aplix one is notorious for starting a diaper chain in the wash. Other than that though, it’s pretty good considering it’s still in rotation after almost 2 and a half years. It was one of the first diapers I bought and really the only wear and tear is the aplix is a little pilly!

Comments

  1. Cute Prints are a must for cloth diapers! My babies are out of diapers, but I have learned so much since I cloth diapered that if I ever got pregnant again I would do so many things different and try out different diapers! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks so much for the in-depth review! It looks like an awesome cloth diaper :)

  3. I am not into cloth diapers but those are pretty cute I must say!

  4. Great review – love how you were honest about the leaks. This looks like a great diaper for our limited budget. And they are so cute too!

  15. I’ve never tried a HH diaper, but I love the colourful print in the photo! I’ll be sure to avoid the aplix..

  16. I’m glad you mentioned that your baby has chunky thighs; my baby also does and so several of the diapers I bought for my previous baby don’t work for my 5 month old :( I’m always looking for what other ‘chunky legged’ babies wear :)

    We have tired happy heinys but they did not work the bestfor my son. His is super skinny and we had issues with leaks when he was younger (This was a problem with some other brands also). I did give them to a friend who has had no issues with them though.

  23. Thanks for a great review- these look like awesome diapers with tons of cute prints! I’ve never tried Happy Heinys before, but I really want to now!

  38. Jennifer Johansen says:

    I’ve never tried these, but I want to!

  39. These look very nice, never tried this brand. I like the laundry tabs too!

  40. Kristi Cartwright says:

    Thanks for a great & informative review–I am new to cloth diapering and posts like this are helping me to come to a better understanding of all the in’s and out’s of CDing and what to look for in products. I like that these fit babies as small as 8 lbs and that they come with the option of ordering with snaps–I am pretty sure I prefer snaps to aplix.

  41. Love that you’re reviewing a diaper you’ve used for 2.5 years. It’s nice to know how they hold up over time.

  42. Erin McCabe says:

    The aplix ones don’t come with laundry tabs? Would prevent the chains and pilling

  43. Guinevere S says:

    I have been meaning to try out Happy Heinys! Love your review! :-)

  44. Valerie Godin says:

    I’ve never tried Happy Heiny’s, but they look very well made and I love the cute prints!

  45. I have never tried a happy heiny and I have to say that is absolutely adorable!! I was also wondering if it had a laundry tab for the aplix or if I was just overlooking that

    • It has laundry tabs!

      • Since you have trouble sticking, is it just from the using them overtime then and the velcro just not sticking to the tab as well?
        Thank you!!

        • My velcro HH is 2 1/2 years old and the velcro doesn’t stick to the laundry tabs too well now, although the diaper is still in great shape otherwise. The velcro does stick well to itself though. I kind of pull the velcro tabs around the back of the diaper and stick them together. Can you picture that? Works better than the laundry tabs ever did!

          • I would never thought of doing that at all! It is amazing how great it looks after that long. Definitely a great purchase!

  46. We have a Happy Heiney and I’ve found it to be nice for a pocket diaper. It is really easy to stuff.

  47. She is so adorable! Love the print of that diaper.
    We have one happy heiny’s in velcro and I love that diaper. It’s one of my favorites.

  48. Good to know that shipping is free over $20 and that you get a free so diap with a $50 purchase! Thanks for the info!

  49. You had me at “bargain bin”. lol:) Seems like they hold up really well!

  50. I like the ocean tie dye one. Very pretty! I have some happy heinys I bought off of Craig’s list but they are sized rather then OS. I’m with you, snaps over hook and loop, hands down!

  51. Ashley Kline says:

    Would love to win the Merry fluffy giveaway!

  52. I would love to try this diaper!

  53. I have not tried Happy Heineys! When I first started cloth diapering, I used pre-folds and covers. Later on I slowly added some pockets and AIO’s, but did not hear about Happy Heineys until child #2, who already inherited his brother’s stash.

  54. Michelle L says:

    I’m considering trying this brand. Thanks for the review!

  55. Thanks for the review. I have read a few on websites that sell them and have wanted to try one, but the two websites that I was going to before Irresistibly Green were always sold out. My son has chunky legs too and I am glad to hear that it has plenty of room for growth.

  56. wow these diapers look so comftorble would love to have one to try

  57. Melissa Mickel says:

    It is really nice to know that your diapers have last 2 1/2 years. I just started out and I’m always worried they are going to mess up or get ruined!

  58. these look great. i really want to start cloth diapers

  59. beautiful patterns and colours, thanks so much for shining a light on this company!

  60. A bargain bin is a brilliant idea! I’d love to try a Happy Heinys; I’ve heard they’re great for overnights and the insides look so soft!

  61. Britni Bradford says:

    I have their organic AIO, which is basically a hemp line pocket. With an insert, it is beyond bulletproof.

  62. I tried the mini Happy Heinys when my LO was a newborn b/c she was a preemie. We got leaks, but I was new to CD’ing so maybe it was user error. It was also aplix and I did not like it at all. I would love to try the OS in snaps now that she’s older and can probably get a good fit. I love their prints.

  63. I’m new to cloth diapering so I haven’t had a chance to try Happy Heineys so thank you for the review! It’s nice to know about the leaks with only one insert since my little man is a super heavy wetter so he’ll need both as well!

  64. Rebecca R. says:

    I do love the prints, but I too had leaks when I had one with snaps. the sides would always shift too much :(

  65. I would love to try the Happy Heinys. They look like a great diaper and come in so many cute prints.

  66. meegan whitford says:

    Thak you so much for the review! My sister just had her baby and is doing the cloth diapers I will have to send her this link she is always looking for good diapers!

  67. never tried but they are so pretty i want to!

  68. Those diapers look so easy to use. AIO are the best for my cloth diaper challenged relatives :)

  69. I agree with you- I love lots of cute prints and I also choose stores that have a good selection so I don’t have to pay shipping to multiple sites. It’s also good to know the diaper has lasted so well. I’ve heard of Happy Heinys for a long time so if they’re still around they must be doing something right. Thanks for the review.

  70. Charlotte R says:

    I had no idea that Irresistibly Green had a Bargain Bin! What a wonderful thing to know :-)

  71. I love the retro Happy Heinys print.

  72. I can’t wait to try cloth diapering for our second baby within the next year or two hopefully. We went disposables for our first little one, and this past year I have felt like a very wasteful individual. Thanks for sharing!
