Sweet Cheeks 30 Days of Dipes

Sweet Cheeks Diaper Company was kind enough to send me a Blueberry OS Pocket diaper and a Planet Wise wetbag but they will be giving one of you a $25 giftcard to choose whatever you like!  Jen and Lori will also have giveaways for $25 giftcards on their sites so don’t miss their reviews of the Blueberry Pail liner and Ruby Moon Wipe Bits and the Ruby Moon detergent and Hiney Liney diaper!

 

 

Spotlight:

Sweet Cheeks Diaper Company is an online AND brick and mortar store run by moms, for moms based in York, Maine.  Sweet Cheeks Diaper company tries to focus on locally made products and features products that are Made in the USA from environmentally conscious manufacturers that make great products and offer great customer service.

After a quick look around their website I was pleased to see a few of my favorites as well as a few things I’ve been itching to try.  Be sure to take a peek and see what they’ve got!  As for myself, I’ve got my eye on a Shamrock BottomBumper!

The Dirty Details:

Sweet Cheeks sent me a Blueberry OS Pocket with Aplix in the Mint Patty minky fabric.  I had never tried a minky diaper before this and I was pretty excited to finally see one in person.

Day Use: 2.0 Bums Up

Overnight Use: 3.0 Bums Up

Ease of Use: 4.0 Bums Up

Quality: 4.0 Bums Up

Overall: 3.25 Bums Up

 

Daytime Use: I’m not sure if it was the cut of this diaper or the fabric, but this was a bulky diaper.  We had issues getting it under clothes and on top of that had issues keeping the diaper on because of the aplix.  Obviously, this may not be an issue for you if you don’t have kids who are in a phase where taking diapers off is a game, but, it was an issue for us.  Snaps would have probably helped a bit.

 

30 Days of Dipes Blueberry Minky

Overnight Use: Once under footie pajamas, this diaper was much easier to deal with- the bulk is not an issue for us at night and aplix ceases to be a problem when contained behind a head to toe zipper.  Of course we still had some leakage but not nearly as bad as some.  The Blueberry OS Pocket comes with 2 inserts, one that folds in half and another that can be added as a booster so we had triple the coverage that we usually get.

Ease of Use: This was very easy to use.  The opening is generous and easy to stuff, although it gets a little tight when you are trying to  get both inserts in.  Aplix, as always, is a breeze!

 

30 Days of Dipes Blueberry Minky

Quality: This is a great quality diaper and the minky fabric really is so soft, albeit thick.  Blueberry diapers are made in the USA.

Overall: This was kind of hit or miss with us.  Days were out because of the bulkiness and nights had little leakage (but not much).  I’m guessing it might be a great diaper for most people.  It’s cute, so paired with a tee and some baby legs this would be great as a lounging around the house diaper…if only I had tried it in snaps!

The Wetbag: 

30 Days of Dipes Planet Wise

The very first accessory I ever bought was a Planet Wise wetbag in “Taxi”.  I still have it, I still use it, I still love it.  I think every diaper bag should have a Planet Wise wetbag inside.  I just bought my first small Planet Wise wetbag and I’m still trying to figure out what to use it for- wipes perhaps? The Medium wetbag is perfect for an outing (although I’d grab my large if I was going to be gone for more than a few hours).  I send one  to school with my boys on swimming day, I use them while traveling for wet clothes and swim suits.  I love this product and can’t say enough good things about it!

    Would you reccomend the planet wise over other brands?

    Try not to be swayed against Blueberry because of this diaper. I don’t have a minky one but it looks quite a bit thicker than the ones I have (deluxe and bamboo deluxe). Though none of my other minky diapers are thick like this one looks either.
    I also have bamboo inserts but think they would be trim with microfiber too. In our house, this is dad’s grab whenever they’re clean diapers. I love them. The is an incredibly pretty diaper though.

    We love the Blueberry Line. The Minky Diaper is a bit bulkier that their other diapers but we thought we would send something fun. All of the blueberry diapers are made very well. I have quite a fe of their diapers and I love them. We are so glad you liked them. Planet Wise is our favorite wet bags. I am currently adding them to the website. They are available in all sorts of sizes and they have such great prints.

    I enjoyed reading the posts this month and it has been great to see all the thoughts on other diapers that we might carry…..thanks Ladies! Karen ..Mom and Owner of Sweet Cheeks Diaper Company
