mother-ease review & GIVEAWAY!

Picture of B will be added soon... he's napping & I left the camera in his room :(



I received a Sandy's fitted diaper from Canadian company, Mother-ease Cloth Diapers, in gorgeous, gorgeous green - I was so excited for it, since we're pretty much out of green diapers these days.  I was also given a Sandy's Cloth Diaper Liner & an Air Flow cover (in Oceans), so I could try it on B for overnight.

First - a little background:

Mother-Ease uses 4 different fabrics for their diapers.  You can choose from Cotton Terry, Organic Cotton Terry, Bamboo Terry, & Stay-dry.  I choose the cotton terry, because I wanted the color!

Here's what Mother-ease has to say about their Sandy's fitteds:
These cloth diapers are made from our same soft stretchy terry cloth using the same quality of workmanship, but they have an extra layer of absorbent terry sewn to the inside of the diaper. The fit of the cloth diaper is slightly roomier. Elastic at the waist front and back as well as the leg openings, together with the snap closures at the sides create a clean pant-like look. A serged edge finishes the diaper. Our large Sandy’s™ cloth diaper is one of the most absorbent cloth diapers ever, and holds 15 oz. When used together with our Sandy’s™ Cloth Diaper Liners it makes an extravagant nighttime cloth diaper.

I'd definitely agree that these are incredibly absorbent diapers.  I go back & forth in my personal opinions about fitteds & one issue I always have is when a fitted is soaked completely through after an overnight.  I can't stand thinking of how B's booty must feel, sitting in this soaking wet diaper all night long ... this was definitely not an issue with the Sandy's Fitted & that makes this mama a happy mama!

I was a little concerned as to the fit of the diaper & cover, because B is just hovering around 21 pounds.  Sandy's are available in two sizes - Small is 8-20 pounds while Large is 20- 35 pounds. I ordered a large & was worried it'd fall off of him.  This was not the case.  It is a bit larger than most of his diapers, but it's not so large that it's an issue, especially at night.  We haven't had a single leak, both without the extra Cloth Diaper Liner during the day, & with it overnight.  Awesome, awesome, awesome.

The Air Flow Cover comes in a variety of colors & prints - all listed as Eco-Themed (& we all know how much I love Eco- anything!).   Mother-ease Cloth Diapers stands by the breathability in their covers, which is a great concept.  Of course, all cloth diaper products should breathe more efficiently than it's disposable counterpart, but some breathe better than others.

Bottom line: Great diaper combo & I'll be thrilled to continue using it as B gets bigger, & future kiddos after him!  My only 'complaint' is that personally, I'd rather they offer a third, in between, size for my munchkin of a kid.  All in all, certainly a diaper I will use & certainly a diaper I would love to purchase!

Speaking of purchase... Want your own Mother-ease Cloth Diaper? You can purchase them at the Mother-ease Cloth Diaper website (it has a handy shopping cart for the US or for Canadians) or you can win one right here!  Mother-Ease has generously offered up one Sandy's Fitted Diaper, as well as an Air Flow Cover.

I would choose the small cotton terry in purple...because I don't have a purple diaper! And the oceans cover!

Thanks for the review! Jos has had leaking issues lately and I'm thinking of getting a few fitteds to go with her Thirsties and Flip covers. Good to know you haven't had any leaking issues with these! And they seem like a great overnight diaper too!
