Happy Hempy Clothdiaper Review & Sugar Dipes Gift Certificate Giveaway!--CLOSED

Sugar Dipes is a relatively new online cloth diaper store. The owner, Sarah decided to open a store after switching her own toddler daughter to cloth with great results. She hopes to educate others on cloth diapers and to help change the stereotype that cloth diapers have. It isn't bad, unhealthy, or gross. They are no different than disposables; except you save a ton of money and help out the environment!

Sarah sent me a Happy Hempy to review.
Happy Hempys are made of two luscious layers of Hemp Fleece, which is a combination of 55% hemp 45% cotton. This fitted diaper has a pocket for stuffing which allows you to customize the amount of absorbency your individual baby needs. Happy Hempys do need a cover. For night time use, fleece and wool covers are wonderful, as they allow baby's skin to breathe all night. The Happy Hempy is an all natural diaper. The Happy Hempy is prewashed which means that although it is hemp, you don't have to wash it ten times before it reaches full absorbency like most hemp diapers.When I first received this diaper, I washed it twice just to be sure it was ready. It was actually much bigger than I expected. I chose a large because the size chart says the large fits 20 to 35 pounds...I guess the 20 inch rise should have told me I really needed a medium. I stuffed the diaper with a hemp prefold & Melanie wore it all afternoon, including a 2 hr nap with no leaks.


Melanie will not wear a diaper over her belly button, so the excess tends to cause an extra fluffy butt.For overnight she wore it stuffed with 2 hemp prefolds with her large Stacinator fleece cover. She woke up dry in the morning.

What I like about this diaper:
  • prewashed hemp
  • fitted diaper
  • customizable absorbency
What I don't like about this diaper:
  • size chart is way out of line with how the diaper fits
  • aplix closure (Melanie can take it off at will)
  • one of the least trim fitting diapers we've tried
I wish this diaper came in snaps & I wish I had known ahead of time that a medium was the best size for Melanie, even though she is about 25 lbs.

Even though I should probably go with some inserts like the Super-Do, I would much rather have something more fun like the new FuzziBunz OS in polka-dots!

I would definitely put it towards a few Fuzzi Bunz One Sizes that I need to get for my son. We were unable to purchase enough when we started cloth diapering, so picking up a few more would be so awesome! Thanks for the contest! ;-)
