ES Baby Cloth Diaper Cover Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

This Monday’s Video Review is for ES Baby.  Christine, the WAHM behind the brand, is so local to me that I was able to drive and pick these covers up to review!  All of her items are adorable, and she is open to custom orders.  I am in love with these covers!  I have switched over from using a double stuffed BlueBerry OS to using the ES Baby Lights Out cover with a fitted overnight. Go on over to ESBaby.net and see all of the gorgeous creations this mama has to offer.


Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰

This cover gets 4 out of 5.  The snaps, which need to be snapped inside the tab, and on the end of the tab, make it hard to snap on a wriggling baby!  But, with practice, it can be done!

Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰✰✰

The wrapping cover is ten dollars, and the lights out cover is twelve.   Since each of these covers worked really well, I say five stars!  Plus, it is had to find snap closure covers.  Another reason this cover is a great deal: The fabulous patterns you can get it in.  For less than a big brand name cover you can choose from adorable colors and prints.

Performance ✰✰✰✰✰

Another five stars!  I have had zero leaks with the lights out cover, and only one instance of wicking with the wrapping cover.  This was my fault for leaving the diaper on too long.  Since the wrapping cover has a cotton print, this is a possibility if it is left on too long.  When used properly, no issue with the wrapping cover either. There are no leg gussets, but I am a firm believer that is your have a prefold on properly, or the fitted works as it should, you don’t need them.

Fit ✰✰✰✰

This one gets four stars.  The only reason I give it four is that I had some issues with the leg elastic being a bit tight for my son.  I do think once he starts crawling his thighs will slim down, and this is going to happen any day now, so his thighs are probably as big around as they are going to get for this age range.


Thanks go to Christine (ES Baby) for letting me test out her product.  I am really impressed with the workmanship, value, and style of these covers.  Don’t forget to check out all of the other great diapers, wet bags, and mama cloth by ES Baby.

Fluffy Mail- June 29- Monday

The carnage of Fluffy Mail excitement.

The carnage of Fluffy Mail excitement.



Today my mailbox was stuffed!  I got two diapers:  a GAD (Green Acre Designs) in meadow lime with an organic bamboo velour inner and a hemp insert, and a Sweet Pea One Size diaper with 2 microfiber inserts.  These were sent for me to review.  They are currently being prepped and will get the Fletcher treatment soon enough.  I am excited to try the GAD most of all.  This company has a great reputation, not to mention the diaper is way too cute.  It is side snapping, which is something I have wanted to try for a while.  Sweet Pea is a Canadian company, with a few retailers carrying their diapers in the states.  I have also read a great review about their diaper.  It is a snapping one size.  I love my snaps!  Besides these two, I have a Smartipants, ES Baby, and Kissaluvs Marvel review either filmed, or set to be tested.  I am extremely excited about all of the amazing reviews coming up.  I hope everyone is finding them informative.  

If there is a diaper you are dying to see on video, let me know.  I will try and get it to review.  And, if you are a company that would like me to try your diaper and film a review, contact me at dirtydiaperlaundry@gmail.com.

Ithaca- Where crunchiness roams

This post may contain affiliate links.

Today was yet another trip to Ithaca, NY.  Yes, Ithaca is “gorges”  hah hah.  Now that that is out of your system I will continue. If you aren’t aware, Ithaca is a very “green” city.  I love the fact that when I go there I am almost soggy compared to the general public.  It gives me something to strive for!

My mission today was to pick up my Ergo backpack attachment for my Ergo Carrier.  Since I am flying to Charlotte next week alone I am determined to lighten my load.  Instead of carrying my son in the ergo and having to carry a diaper bag I just solved my problem!

Somehow I timed it perfectly.  There was a nasty thunderstorm this morning, so we waited for it to pass.  I picked up my friend and her daughter and by the time we made it to Ithaca it was drizzly.  We both wore our babies, she used a backpack carrier and I put Fletcher in the Didy wrap I am borrowing from Woowoomama.  I used the front facing carry and it was great.  I am getting the hang of using a wrap and starting to enjoy it.

Our first stop was Mama Goose.  This is a consignment store, but it also sells handmade items from locals.  I was excited to see ES baby diapers there in the store.  They are made by a mom who is local to me.  She is quite talented and I love her diapers.  In fact, my son is wearing a cover she made right now.

Next stop was Jillian’s Drawers!!!!!  I can’t get enough of this store.  I picked up my backpack and talked to a few of the employees.  One of them joins in on the Twitter chats on monday nights about #clothdiapers.  It was nice to put a face to the name.  My friend bought 5 diapers and a pack of soakers.  She found a fantastic deal on BG Organic AIO’s which were used and in great shape.  They were pink so I was not interested!  Then she got on the Gro Baby wagon.  She purchased a shell in Blackberry along with a pack of two soakers.  So in essence she got 7 diapers!!!  I had willpower and only got what I came for.  On our way out I saw the International Breastfeeding symbol on the door.  I was pretty excited about seeing one in person.  Of course, I will breastfeed wherever I please, but I am happy to support any business that is pro-breastfeeding.  

Our last stop was at the usual eatery.  Amazingly the babies both behaved.  No tantrums.  I had to nurse Fletcher at the end when he got a bit fussy but it was cake.  While inside, the bottom of the sky dropped and it started pouring.  Somehow our timing was once again impeccable.  By the time we were finished the rain had become a light drizzle.  

So, I am back home where I am on the extreme end of crunchy.
