Kawaii Baby Diapers Review & Giveaway (Now Closed)

10 Jan

               When I first started cloth diapering I was pretty sure that I wanted to use either AIO’s (all-in-ones) or pocket diapers, but when it came to what brand, I was at a loss. Since I have three (yes THREE) in diapers the start up cost was overwhelming and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a ton of diapers that I was going to end up hating. I spent a ridiculous amount of time researching and tried a handful of diapers that I thought I might like (BumGenius, FuzziBunz, Gdiapers, and a few no name diapers that I ordered off of Ebay). None of these really really “wowed” me, or at least none of them wowed me enough to win out over the staggering amount of money required to outfit three kids under three years old with enough cloth diapers to not have to do laundry every day.

               One day while searching  for used diapers on Craigslist I came across an ad for someone selling a bunch of Kawaii Baby diapers. I was intrigued. I had never heard of them but they looked expensive. I did a bit of Googling to try and find out if buying them would be a bargain or not and I found the website www.theluvyourbaby.com never did end up buying those dipes off of Craigslist. Turns out they were so reasonably priced that I could afford to just buy them new. I was elated – these diapers were CUTE!

               I started off with about six of the minky dipes in ½ snap closure and ½ hook and loop (Velcro).

Loved.

Them.

               Soon after I placed a huge order for a variety of other diapers off the site. By this time I had decided that I preferred the snap closures to the hook and loop kind because my children are older and think it’s hilarious to strip naked at any given moment. Velcro just facilitates their nudist tendencies. I also found that I do not care for the extra snaps at the hip that some of the diapers come with. I know that that is actually a very popular option for most people, but it seems to make the diapers cut in to my children’s hips and leaves marks. On the few diapers that I have with the hip snaps I usually just leave them unsnapped. That said, my favorite diapers are the minkies and the regular round tab dipes.

               When I first started researching Kawaii Baby diapers I couldn’t find any reviews on them so placing an order made me a little bit nervous (remember those no-name diapers I said I ordered on Ebay? Yea. NOT the best quality!). I am thrilled to say that the Kawaii Baby diapers are soft, absorbent and very well made. My diapers get used A LOT between my three and I have hardly ever seen a leak. I have seen a few others mention that the inserts are kind of thin (each diaper comes with two, by the way) but I have never had a problem. I use one insert during the day and two at night, works great for us. I’ve also never seen a thicker insert with any of the other diapers I own so…*shrug*

               My one and only “issue” with these diapers is that I do have a  few where the stitching is starting to come loose around the top of the diaper. I don’t mean that the diaper is coming apart in any way, it is just, basically a loose thread. It doesn’t in any way affect how well they work and it is something that could be easily fixed if I felt like bothering. I’m also pretty sure it has much more to do with the fact that I usually dry my diapers in the dryer (not recommended) rather than line drying.

               Overall I highly recommend Kawaii Baby diapers if you want a high quality cloth diaper but don’t have a ton of cash to shell out (like me). I am planning on ordering a few of the bamboo and I’ve had my eye on the “Unicorn Kid” fun print for quite some time now.

               Now for the good part: How would you like to try a Kawaii Baby diaper yourself for FREE!?

              When I contacted April at Kawaii Baby to let her know that I was in love with her diapers and that I wanted to write a review, she generously offered one Heavy Wetter Hook & Loop diaper for a giveaway. The winner gets to choose which ever color they like (white, lime green, apple green or yellow) and it will be shipped directly from Kawaii Baby once I let her know who the lucky winner is. Horray!

                                         (I had the wrong image up of the diaper to be given away, THESE are the correct diaper – they have a                                                             differnet velcro closure than the first picture I had up. SO sorry for any confusion!!)     “Overlap Velcro Closure fit smaller babies. 3 Rows of rise snap buttons to transform the diaper to fit newborn thru potty”
