Wee Bonnie Botts AIO Review, Giveaway & Discount! (CLOSED 10/26)


wee bonnie botts aio

Wee Bonnie Botts are work-at-home-mom (WAHM) made diapers made by Sarah.  Like so many other WAHMs, Sarah started out by making diapers for her own child, and it took off from there.

Sarah and I got in contact as I was looking for sponsors for my “Year of Fluff” event this month, and she sent me a side-snapping AIO to review.

I really like to keep my reviews fairly matter of fact, but it so happens that the diapers I’m reviewing this week come from some of the most talented WAHMs I know.  So, you might hear a little bit more gushing than usual this week.

seam craftsmanship

I of course love the pirate print; I have a fitted in this print also.  Wee Bonnie Botts is one of a growing list of WAHMs that simply amaze me.  The craftsmanship is absolutely impeccable; not a stitch out of place.  The diaper is seamed in the middle so the front and back are both right side up!

snaps soaker thickness

The All-in-One I received is a size medium, which is estimated to fit 18-33 pounds.  The knit outer is laminated PUL, not hidden.  So there are no issues with wicking.  It has an organic bamboo fleece hidden layer, organic bamboo fleece and microfiber soakers, and a stay dry, suedecloth inner.

Wee Bonnie Botts makes diapers with two patterns.  Here is approximate sizing for each:

Je M’appelle Bebe
Preemie 2-7 lbs
Newborn 5-12 lbs
Small 10-20 lbs
Medium 18-33 lbs
Large 30-40 lbs
OS 5-40 lbs

Small: Rise 14″-16″, waist 11″-20″, thigh 6″-13″
Medium: Rise 14″-18.5″, waist 12″-21″, thigh 6.5.”-13.5″
Large: Rise 16″-19″, waist 14″-24″, thigh 8″-14″

Here it is measured folded, stretched, width at the center, and width at the front panel:

center width front panel width

I thought the sizing was generous, but not overly so.  The medium fit my 18.5 lb guy great, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it took him through potty training.

The diaper was very absorbent, and we had no fit issues or leaks!  The AIOs retail for $19-$24 (the $24 is for wool AIOs, which are coming soon.  I want, I want!)  Pocket diapers are $16-$21, fitteds $10-$20, and she even has doll diapers for $5!

A Year of Fluff Cloth Diapers Fitted Diapers Giveaway Made in the USA Newborn Diapers Review Snap Closure

Kissaluvs “Kissa’s” Cotton Fleece Fitted Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 10/23)


kissaluvs 0 fitted

I reviewed a Kissaluvs Marvels AIO in May; that’s still a favorite of mine, and my Kissa’s Wool Lover Diaper Cover was my first ever wool (purchased in March.)  So, when I won a Kissa’s Cotton Fleece Fitted from the Abby’s Lane blog chat, I was a little excited, to say the least!!

kissa's fitted

Lucky for you, I contacted Kissaluvs, and they will be giving two of my blog readers a fitted diaper as well!

kissa's size 0 back

In true cloth diaper addict fashion, I chose the size 0 (fits approximately 5-15 lbs) even though I don’t have a newborn, nor am I pregnant!  Hey, it was free!

snaps inner

 The size zero fits 5-15 pounds, the 1, 10-25 pounds, and the 2, 20-40 pounds.  All sizes retail for $12.95 in unbleached cotton, and $13.95 in the colors.  I chose the yellow.

Below, the size 0 is on top of the Marvels AIO on the small setting.

The size 0 has an umbilical cord snap down, but can also be used without it.  Below, it is measured with the snap down, then unsnapped and stretched.

Here is the fitted compared to a newborn disposable, and also unsnapped, compared to a size 1 disposable:

Since I don’t have a newborn, I had to enlist a model.  He’s a little smaller than a newborn!

Here he is modeling a preemie newborn diaper, so you can get an idea of size:

Size 1 disposable:

After all that, he said his hiney was itchy and he wanted to put the Kissa’s fitted on!

kissaluvs 0 fitted diaperkissa's fitted 0

Much more comfy!!

It’s a little subjective, but I’d say it fits more like a preemie diaper, though it looked similar to the newborn diaper.  My model isn’t a very heavy wetter, so I can’t really speak on the absorbency.  I haven’t cloth diapered a newborn, but I imagine fitteds would be great.  They are breathable and could likely be used coverless, since newborns tend to dirty diapers as soon as you put them on (mine did anyway!) See this on my newborn.

Giveaway: Kissaluvs is offering two diaper giveaways, which will be drawn separately.  Winners choose size and color of a Kissa’s Fitted!  The first is open to anyone and will be business as usual.  The second diaper will be drawn from entrants who already own a Kissaluvs product, and leave a review(s) of it.

Here’s how to enter: Anyone is eligible to win the first diaper. To enter, simply fill out the form below.  Mandatory entries include name, email address and your favorite Kissaluvs Product.  You may receive a bonus entry for “liking” Kissaluvs on Facebook and/or following Kissaluvs on Twitter.  Feel free to leave a comment however, comments don’t count as entries.

Entries for the second diaper will go on the same form, but will be tallied and drawn separately from the first.  This way everyone gets the same shot at the first one! Reviews can be left at diaperpin, amazon, sears, Kissaluvs’ Facebook Page, or your favorite retailer’s website.  One entry per review, link to your review to get your entry!

I know this is a little more confusing than usual, so just send me an email if you need clarification!  The post will be updated daily (or so) with the # of entries for each.

I will accept entries until Saturday, October 23rd 2010 at 9 P.M. Eastern.  I will select winners using’s true random number generator and notify them by email.  Winners have 48 hours to respond before the prize is forfeited and a new winner is chosen.  View my giveaway rules page for complete details.  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Kawaii Baby One Size Pocket Diaper Review & Giveaway, Sponsored by Sew Crafty Baby (CLOSED 10/21)


kawaii baby one size pocket diaper

Sew Crafty Baby is an online cloth diaper and baby leg warmers store.  I have a few favorite places to buy cloth diapers, and Sew Crafty Baby is a great one!  They have both the big names as well as tons of harder to find brands.  They have a kickback program to earn points for the money you spend, and they have an affiliate program.  Don’t worry, none of the links in this post are affiliate links; I’m not an affiliate!  I actually just discovered the program as I was writing this post!  They even have a gift registry!

Best of all, shipping is always free!  There’s always an option to pay a little bit extra to bump up to priority shipping, but I love being able to order anything I want without worrying about meeting a $50 (or $75 or $99) minimum for free shipping!  Another neat feature is that the site will tell you how many of the item are in stock!

Sew Crafty Baby sent me a Kawaii One Size Pocket Diaper to review, and they’re sending one to one of my blog readers as well!

I’ve been asked about Kawaii quite a bit, and I was as curious as the rest of you.  At $9.99 each, they seem too good to be true!  I was surprised when I received it; it seems very nice, and reminds me of other big name o/s pocket diapers.

We didn’t have any fit or leaking issues; the diaper has help up wonderfully so far.  The real test will be how it wears over time.

A Year of Fluff Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Rumpsack Pocket Diaper Winner



So I closed the form to new responses, just as my laptop decided to complete it’s slow, agonizing death.  By the time I got on to another computer to finish what I was doing two more entries had popped in, even though I confirmed the form was closed before the computer kicked the bucket.  Ugh.  Anyhoo, I’m leaving those entries since it was my own fault.

249 people entered the giveaway, with a total of 432 entries!  Wow!

The winner is #147, which is Jody!  I’m sending you an email!

Now, I should be writing up more of my Year of Fluff posts, but after this computer stuff, I think I’m going to bed.  I’ve got a giveaway post all ready for tomorrow, and Friday’s giveaway roundup is just about ready too!
