Cloth Diaper Swap....I GOT my package!!!

Newly Wed Newly Bred

At the beginning of September I signed up to participate in Newly Wed, Newly Bred's Diaper Swap. The budget for the swap was $25 before shipping. I had a ton of fun shopping for my partner and had no idea who was shopping for Melanie.

Last Friday, we mailed the package to our partner. On Tuesday, our package came. We received a Happy Heinys one size snap diaper with the cutest ever bear print! This diaper came with 2 microfiber inserts that are super thick feeling. We also received a bottle of Satsuma Twist Fluff Dust, made by knickernappies, a Better Butt (er) Cream sample & an All Natural Diaper Rash salve sample, both made by Northern Essence. Our package was sent by Sarah who owns an online cloth diaper store called Sugar Dipes, I've now browsed her store & will add it to my list of places to check when I'm in the market for more Fluff!

We've never tried Happy Heinys before. The print is adorable, the PUL is very thick & the snaps are super sturdy. These run quite a bit bigger than the other one size diapers we have, I tried it on Melanie at the biggest setting & it was droopy looking, kind of like her large Fuzzibunz. I snapped it down to the medium setting & crossed the waist snaps over at the waist & it fits her perfectly! I doubt she's going to grow much before she potty trains, but it is really nice to have that much growth room in a one size diaper. I'm thinking this is going to be a GREAT overnight diaper! The Fluff Dust has a citrus scent, can't wait to try it in our diaper pail!

This is the fit on the medium setting
Very trim across the bottom, even with both inserts in. Melanie's jeans will easily fit over this diaper.
Action shot! It was obviously very comfortable, Melanie LOVED it from the second we first tried it on. The Peace Bears are a great neutral print and the background is a soft pale green.

Thank you Sara!!! And Thank you Megan for hosting! Head over to Newly Wed, Newly Bred for links to what all the other participants received.

Very cute the bears. I don't know about you but I'm always looking to find more and more cute prints. Right now I only have 1 print and I just got another with the swap package I got.
