Cloth Diaper retailers from Minnesota

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a cloth diaper review and giveaway but I thought I might get us all in the mood for the Great Cloth Diaper Change on April 21st  by checking out some great retailers and products over the next few weeks!  Today I’m dishing on Bizzing Bea Baby Emporium, an online cloth diaper retailer based right here in Minnesota! I will also be reviewing the Giggle Life bamboo cloth diaper and for all the cloth diaper lovers out there- there will be a giveaway!

 

 

Retailer Spotlight

As I said above, Bizzing Bea Baby Emporium is an online cloth diaper retailer based in Minnesota. I first learned of Bizzing Bea through a local cloth diapering Facebook group and was excited to meet a local WAHM just starting out in the cloth diapering biz.  Bizzing Bea has some of my favorite products as well as a few diapers that have been on my “must try” list for awhile.  (Peachy Green anyone?)

 

Giggle Life Bamboo Pocket

When talking to Ali about her new endeavor (she’s the mom behind the scenes) she asked me to try out the Giggle Life bamboo pocket diaper.  She had never tried them and had fallen in love very quickly.  I was excited to try it as I have had limited experience with bamboo but am trying to get rid of the microfiber in my stash.

Day Use: 5.0Bums Up

Overnight Use: 2.0 Bums Up

Ease of Use: 4.0 Bums Up

Quality: 4.0 Bums Up

Overall: 3.75 Bums Up


Daytime Use: The Giggle Life bamboo pocket diaper is a fairly trim diaper, even with 2 bamboo inserts which makes it great for every day use.

 

Overnight Use: Even with both bamboo inserts in, this didn’t cut it for us overnight. There is plenty of room to stuff though, so perhaps a different combination of inserts and or more inserts would do the trick.  We are known for our bad luck with diapers overnight so I don’t think this is particularly a Giggle Life problem as much as it’s a 3 big heavy wetters problem.  I’m guessing a younger child or an average wetter would be just fine in this diaper.

Giggle Life Cloth Diaper Review

 

Ease of Use: This is a pocket with a soft minky outer and an even softer bamboo lining.    My biggest issue with the Giggle Life diaper was the snaps can be kind of difficult to snap.  I usually don’t put this on my youngest who is really squirmy during diaper changes because I’d never get the snaps done before he was running naked across the living room.  (*Be sure when prepping bamboo that you prep it separately- the oils from the fibers can build up on your other diapers and you really don’t want to have to strip diapers because you are cutting corners on prep.)

 

Quality: I would say this diaper is pretty good quality. The bamboo is a nice touch, especially if you are looking for natural fibers against your baby’s skin.  It’s very easy to stuff and has 3 snaps on each flap.  There are 3 rise settings.

Overall: I think this is an overall great pocket diaper and in fact it made me fall a little more in love with bamboo (I rely heavily on cotton prefolds) not to mention minky diapers which I have so far not been super impressed with!  I think this diaper should have a place in everyone’s stash.

Buy it!
