Ever since I fell in love with the Knickernappies superdo and loopydo inserts, I’ve wanted to try one of their diapers. So, I had been entering all of the blog giveaways I saw for their diapers. Last month, I found out I won the giveaway sponsored by Knickernappies on The Cloth Diaper Report. I was just as excited as you might have guessed, especially since it was the first diaper I’d won!
The Knickernappies 2G pocket diapers do not normally come with inserts, and the giveaway clearly stated the win would not have an insert. Knickernappies sent one anyway, which was awesome!
I couldn’t decide on color, so I let my husband choose. My daughter wanted violet, but while I’d put a deep eggplant on my son, I wasn’t so sure about that color. Her second choice was raspberry (pink)! He (obviously, since you’re looking at the pics!) chose melon. The color was a little brighter than I expected it to be. I’m not sure why since looking at the pics online now, it seems fairly accurate.
Both the 2G diapers and the Knickernappies one size diapers are side snapping. I prefer front closures, only because it’s what I’m used to. I think I have at least 3, if not 4 side snapping diapers now. So, they’re not as confusing now that I have more practice!
The “2G” pocket diapers are sized. I chose the medium, which is estimated to fit 15-28 pounds. The small fits about 5-15 pounds, and the large fits about 25-35 pounds. The complete Knickernappies 2G size chart also includes waist, thigh and rise estimates.
We didn’t have any leak issues with the microfiber insert, I’m sure it would be an even better diaper with a loopydo insert! I didn’t try it with mine since I tried to be cheap and buy large inserts. They get a little bulky when you try to fold them down, so I just use them at night now! The diaper without insert retails for about $15.95. The basic microfiber insert is $3.95, but you can save by buying the diaper with an optional loopydo or superdo insert.
Amazingly, the second diaper giveaway I won was also last month, for another Knickernappies 2G pocket diaper! Initially, I thought about asking for a new winner to be drawn, since I had just won one. The first one I won (am I saying one/won enough?) was sponsored by Knickernappies, but the second was sponsored by Earth Angels Diaper Co. on their Diaper Discussions blog.
While I haven’t personally purchased from Earth Angels Diaper Co., they have good prices, a wide selection, and even an affiliate program. Don’t worry, no links in this post are affiliate links! They have risk-free “try me” cloth diaper kits and even a layaway program! My experience with the owner was wonderful.
Giveaway: As my second giveaway win, I received the size medium, melon color Knickernappies 2G pocket diaper and microfiber insert pictured above, and it is sitting, new and unused, awaiting a new owner. I have been assured that re-gifting (re-giveaway-ing?) a blog win isn’t as incredibly tacky as I’m afraid it may seem, so…at the end of this giveaway, one of you will have a diaper just like the one I reviewed (only new of course!)

FTC compliance: Both the review item and the giveaway items were random blog wins. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.
Abby’s Lane is one of my favorite cloth diaper retailers, so it makes me warm & fuzzy that they are one of my “A Year of Fluff” sponsors!
So, why are they one of my favorites? They have a wide selection of cloth diapers, accessories, and even baby carriers and pediped baby shoes. They offer free shipping always, on every U.S. order. Before I found Abby’s Lane, I would try to keep a list of what I wanted to order, and wait until I had $50 or whatever I needed to get free shipping. Then half the time, something I wanted was out of stock, so I was having to wait to order (only to have another item out of stock) or be faced with paying shipping, or ordering something I didn’t really want, to get up to the free shipping minimum.
Speaking of stock, I’ve never run into an item I wanted being out of stock at Abby’s Lane. I’m sure it happens, but it’s never happened to me. They update their Facebook page when they restock items (which is pretty quickly in my opnion!) and they look to their customers for what they should add to their wide selection.
Abby’s lane also offers “Abby’s Lane Dollars” which rewards you for money you spend. They have a gift registry and an easily accessible page of sale items. If you sign up for their newsletter or the Abby’s Lane Yahoo Group, you get a 5% discount on every order (excluding Ergo.) Be sure to also check out the Abby’s Lane Blog for news, tips, reviews and some blog chat parties. I won my Kissaluvs Fitted from their blog chat!
Abby’s Lane is also somewhat “local” to me, since they are in Virginia and I’m in Maryland. I am anxiously awaiting a Brick & Mortar store so I can finally see all that fluff in person, and hopefully meet the great Mama behind the company!
Giveaway: Abby’s Lane is offering a $20 gift certificate to one of my readers!!
