Belly Buttons and Bubbles is owned and operated by Jessica! I first contacted Jessica to see if she would be willing to sponsor this event! As you know, the Birthday Blessings Bash is to celebrate the birth of my two blessings! This is a very special posting for me, as I feel a connection to Jessica. You see, Jessica recently gave birth to her second child, a boy, on Superbowl Sunday! I (4 years ago) gave birth to my first child, a boy on Superbowl Sunday! What a coincidence! Mama and baby are doing well! Congrats Jessica!
She is so dedicated to her business that she was messaging me about the review from her phone when her contractions were only 4 minutes apart! :) That is the kind of dedicated service you can expect from Belly Buttons and Bubbles!
Ok, onto the review!
Many of you know I LOVE fitted diapers and wool covers. Since I've been using cloth I've come across some of my favorite brands. One of which is Nifty Nappy. Nifty Nappy diapers are now made by Jeni over at Red Barn Cloth Diapers! Jeni does fabulous work and I was so excited when Jess agreed to send me a Red Barn Nifty Nappy AI2 cloth diaper in "Corduroy" for me to review. This is what I received:
Here is a picture of the organic hemp fleece and organic bamboo velour insert (which is incredibly soft by the way):
I really like the fact that the insert is sewn together at the top. This saves me having to fold it in thirds before laying it on top of the diaper for use:
Here is a little more information about this diaper (taken from Belly Buttons and Bubbles' website):
"The Nifty Nappy™ AI2 diaper is our old pocket diaper perfected. Many people used our Pocket diaper with the insert simply laid in instead of stuffing it in the pocket. When you use our AI2, there is no need for a cover. This Nifty Nappy™ AI2 really is a convenient diaper. It is a one size (OS) diaper made to fit from 7 lbs. to 35 lbs, and it can easily take you all the way through potty training. The Nifty Nappy™ AI2 has a very trim fit and is designed to fit under the belly. There should not be any sag in the bum.
• Absorbent, less “stinky” Hemp/Bamboo inserts
• Hidden elastics for ultimate containment and comfort
• Overlapping front snap for custom fit
• One size will fit all your babies and toddlers
• Convenient for babysitter/daycare/daddies
The Nifty Nappy™ AI2 is made up of 3 layers and an insert:
– Outer layer: cute cotton knit print
– Sandwiched layer: PUL which is the waterproof layer; In our diapers there is no access to the PUL so it will last longer.
– Inner layer: microfleece to wick the moisture in to the absorbent insert
Our inserts have the the wonderful qualities of Hemp and Bamboo absorbency. The inserts are made with a layer of Organic Hemp Fleece and a layer of Organic Bamboo Velour. Sewn in “fortune cookie” fashion they are easy to wash and quick to dry.
Nifty Nappy™ AI2 diapers have a layer of PUL in them. To care for them simply dump the unwanted “objects” into the toilet. When washing do NOT use fabric softeners or detergents with enzymes. When drying you may dry in the dryer on a gentle cycle, but for longer life allow to air dry. The PUL might need to be resealed occasionally, to do this simply throw in the dryer on the hot cycle. Don’t do this more than once a month."
This diaper fits my 2 yo perfectly! Sadly, I was unable to take a picture of this diaper on my son before posting this review! Both boys were a bit under the weather and whenever I put a diaper on my son and pick up my camera, well, he makes a run for it. It's like we are playing tag or something! This makes for very blurry pictures! We have used it for about 2 days now and yes, even at nap-time!
We have had no issues with this diaper as far as leaks or other problems. I love the fact that this diaper is so stinkin' cute, and functional. I also really appreciate that fact that this diaper was hand made by Jeni herself. Jeni does fabulous work and I can tell you first hand that these diapers are just about identical to the work that Vilate (from Nifty Nappy) does! You will not be disappointed.
These diapers also come in a bunch of other adorable prints!
You can purchase this diaper from Belly Buttons and Bubbles for only $23.50!
