Harper is crawling all over the house like she owns the place, and experimenting with walking and climbing. She’s figured out how to open the latch on our dog’s crate and set him free, and the two of them love creating chaos all over the house. As she tests her limits and has minor tumbles, I see yet another reason I’m thankful for cloth diapers. That extra padding sure does help cushion the fall! She rarely even pauses when she tumbles now, just gets right back up with renewed resolve. I love seeing the world through her eyes, and knowing how excited she is to have her newfound control and freedom.
Little Butt Diapers is a WAHM made diaper with a shop on Etsy. They feature amazing fun diapers in great pop culture influenced prints. A few of my favorites were Iron Man, Batman, My Little Pony, and Lord of the Rings. Oh, yeah, and the one I was lucky enough to receive, which is Harry Potter! Forgive me while I dance around like a goofy fan-girl. I read the books when they first came out (I remember reading the third one in a single sitting at the library, I didn’t pause even once until I was done, it took over my senses) and they will always hold a special place in my heart.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩✩This pocket diaper comes with an insert made of a long piece of unbleached birdseye cotton you can fold and tuck inside for a perfect fit. Mine came with beautifully done rainbow thread serging and I found myself pulling it out of the diaper bag repeatedly to show off to friends. I love it when something is as lovely as it is effective. The micro fleece interior is soft and stretchy, and it is easy to stuff the insert, even for my husband with his larger hands.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩Prices range from 25 to 30 dollars depending on the diaper you select. Custom diapers are also available, which I love. Getting creative and coming up with ideas to make something really special is one of my favorite things about cloth diapering. While you can find embroidered cloth diapers cheaper than this, I think it’s important to note the quality of this specific diaper. The designs are meticulous and a second layer of PUL under the embroidered layer creates a well constructed water tight work of art.
Performance ✩✩✩✩✩ The birdseye insert allows for a lot of flexibility in how you use this diaper. At night I leave a bit more material in the front since my eleven month old has taken to sleeping on her stomach, this has worked well for us and we haven’t had any leaks yet. During the day I simply fold it in half and stuff it in, for even coverage on all sides for my crawler/practice walker. I was worried that the insert might not hold as much as her microfiber or charcoal inserts but I didn’t really notice any difference, it’s extremely absorbent.
Fit ✩✩✩✩Little Butts offers three rise settings to help you get that perfect fit. The snaps on this diaper are strong and secure, and I love the way they are laid out at an angle. It provides a much better fit for my sweet little girl’s narrow hips and tiny round tummy. This diaper is not as trim as some pockets we’ve loved, probably due to all those layers of material, but it’s not unreasonable and the leg fit is amazing on my baby’s skinny little thighs.Overall:
Little Butts has some incredible designs to choose from. They’ll make a great gift and a perfect special occasion diaper (who doesn’t want a Superman diaper and a little red cape for their baby for Halloween?) as well as a really fun addition to your laundry/diaper routine (I smile whenever I see that lightning bolt). The fact that they are well made, expertly constructed, and extremely absorbent is just the icing on the cake.
