We made it to 50 followers!! YAY!! Thank you everyone!!
I received my box yesterday from Robyn over at Robyn’s Sweet Cheeks Cloth Diapers.. and I love them! First let me tell you a little about Robyn. She is a stay at home mama of 5, who loves to cook (and bake, yum!), sew cloth diapers and simple projects, craft, play with her kids, read, blog, camp, and try new things. She is in her thirties, a woman never tells her real age, right? (For the right diaper I would tell you though!! Just Kidding!!) She loves Jesus,her family, her friends and helping others.She is a cloth diapering, baby wearing, sometimes co-sleeping, breastfeeding, Eco-friendly, semi-crunchy mama! And she wouldn’t have it any other way! I snatched this info from her blog What Mama Wants… and the Quest for the Perfect Cloth Diaper. :o) Its a great read for information about cloth diaper, yummy recipes, laughs, and lots of awesome giveaways. Right now she is giving away 3 of her diapers to one of her followers for getting her to over 200 followers!!
Now about the diapers… first off you won’t see these prints in her store, because Robyn graciously converted some of my old receiving blankets and a wool sweater in to the diapers and covers. We both like to up-cycle! I have to add, that when I measured Baby G for these diapers and covers.. she was not in a very helpful mood and it took three of us to hold her down and measure her. I got the measurements wrong, so a couple of the diapers and the wool longies came out too big, BUT babies grow, and I imagine it won’t be long until they fit just right! Robyn also tucked in a couple surprises for me.. :o) But you will see a lot of other really cute fabric prints. Robyn makes, AIO’s, fitted’s, PUL covers, upcycled wool covers, fleece covers, wipes, pillowcase dresses and more… most of her items she will custom make for you!
I pulled the diapers out of the box, ooohed and ahhed.. and stuck one on Baby G.. yea yea, I know I am supposed to wash them first.. but I couldn’t wait!! They were so cute! And it was amazing that something that was just sitting around taking up space was now useful again!
The diapers fit snugly, and even though they are fitted’s they are so well padded, I could easily go without a cover during the day. I put one on Baby G last night, with her new wool longies, and she woke up this morning dry, and comfy. This is a baby that does NOT like to be wet, but she was not fussing about her diaper at all! I usually have to change her in the middle of the night, but she did not wake up wet once! These are now my nighttime diapers of choice! Here are a few pics of the diapers..
this is a fleece pull on cover… I love how soft it is, but wish that it had some elastic to help keep it on my super slim baby!
One of the fitted diapers with snaps..
side view.. NO gaps! Even with those thin thighs!
rear view.. again no gaps.. and no red marks when we took it off two hours later!
This was my surprise.. we have a thing for frogs around here.
Great fit! No gaps..
Tried to get a good rear view.. but Baby G was done being a model! :o)
None of my other kids would volunteer!
Here she is in her wool longies.. upcycled from a sweater we were given.. They are a little long.. but that was more then likely my fault.. it only took three of us to hold her down to measure her!
It stayed on and snug even through the evening play time!
My whole package minus the longies and the two diapers she wore last night.. :o)
The diapers are snug and stay on through climbing over furniture, and trying to steal mom’s keyboard.. :o) And the Velcro strong enough she couldn’t pull it off!
Nice and snug.. no gaps!
