Cloth Diapers at #ABCKids15

Post contains affiliate links. I spent a lot of my time at the 2015 ABC Kids Expo in cloth diaper booths because, well..obviously. I’ve already shared the new Bumgenius/Cottonbabies products with you but there is so much more. Some products aren’t available yet so I’m trying to make sense of my chicken scratch notes. Accuracy not guaranteed. 😉

The Applecheeks booth was a fun place to get a glitter tattoo and I managed to time my Instagram video perfectly to capture their accessory reveal!

Baby Legs Deodorizers Detergents Giveaway Made in the USA Review WAHM made

Kickin’ Creations Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 9/21)


kickin creations
I originally contacted Mandy of Kickin’ Creations to buy some wool dryer balls.  As it turned out, she was not happy with the new method she was trying (at the time) for making them, and didn’t want to sell any to me until she was pleased with how they ended up.
We got to chatting and I agreed to review her cloth diaper safe laundry detergent, deodorizer powder (pail powder) and baby legs.  (She also sells sugar scrubs, burp cloths and more!)

Kickin’ Creations items are normally shipped in nice, heat-sealed bags.  Since mine were samples, they were shipped in regular baggies.

I received the detergent and pail powder, both in Wild Cherry Blossom scent.  Other scent options include: Sweet Pea & Jasmine, Lavender Essential Oil, Apple Cinnamon, Fresh Linen and Unscented.

I’ve had such a hard time with detergent, that I was really surprised and impressed by Kickin’ Creations.  Like the other scented detergents I’ve used, the scent was very strong.  I could smell it as soon as I opened my mailbox!  I’m a little more sensitive to smells than others, so I put the detergent and pail powder in an OXO container for storage.  Like that, it made my laundry room smell great!
cloth diaper safe products
Each bag of detergent contains up to 70 wash loads, and sells for $15.00 plus $4.95 shipping.  A half-batch sample pack sells for $8.00 plus shipping.  The instructions are to use 1-2 tablespoons (3 to soak, less per load for an HE machine.)

The first time I used it, I used a little more than I needed to.  After that, I used a little bit less, and while the laundry room smelled great while washing, the diapers rinsed clean.  When they were finished, they had a faint scent, but just smelled clean.  I used the whole bag (it lasted at least a week, I should have kept track!) and it worked wonderfully.
I use a Planet Wise large hanging wet bag as a pail, and don’t have a lot of stink issues.  However, since I’ve started washing every other day, things get a little…eh…”gamey” by wash day.  The Stink Be Gone All Purpose Deodorizer Powder is available in the same scents as the detergent, and a 10 ounce package sells for $5.00 plus shipping. 
If you used it in a shaker bottle (relabeled for safety!) like an empty baby powder or spice container, it would be very easy to sprinkle a bit in your diaper pail or trash can. I just shook a little bit out of the bag onto the diapers as I added them to the pail & noticed some stink.  It really did a good job of neutralizing the odor.  My laundry room (where I keep my pail!) smelled fresh, not like flowery dirty diapers, hee hee.
baby legs
Last up are the baby legs.  You really have to cut me some slack on my pictures.  Lately, trying to photograph my son feels like trying to photograph a squirrel on redbull.

The pair I received are navy blue, and like other WAHM baby legs, they are made from knee socks.

Mandy also makes a “Tiny Legs” version of baby legs for 0-3 month olds.  They sell for about $5.00 plus shipping.

I am looking forward to using these when the weather gets cooler and he gets that chilly gap between socks and pants!

Baby Legs Giveaway Review WAHM made

Five in a Row Baby Legs / Leggies Review and Giveaway! CLOSED


I had been eyeing BabyLegs for a while, but I really hesitated to buy any.  At $12 (or more) plus shipping, per pair, I was afraid I wouldn’t like them, they wouldn’t fit etc.  Plus, I was having a hard time finding a pair that would match a lot of our diapers.
Several WAHMs make their own version of babylegs out of knee socks.  When I saw the pair of “leggies” that Five in a Row had, I jumped on them.  $5 including shipping?  Yes please!!
If you know me by now, you know I love a personal note!

One end has the original, um, cuff I guess?  Hem?  I don’t know, what do you call that, LOL.  The thing that would be at the top of your sock!!  The other end has the hand sewn part where the foot used to begin.

The socks are stretchy.  That combined with the change in width led to a little bit of a ruffly seam inside, but you don’t notice it at all when they’re on.

We usually use around 7-10 diapers in a day, so after his first change of the day (I usually don’t get him dressed first thing) I gathered up all the diapers I thought might match.

Hmm, the brown & blue might not match that well.  Oh well!

At first I tried the wider, hand-sewn end at the top, and the original, tighter end at the bottom.

Yes, baby holding remote=quiet baby=Mommy can take a picture, LOL!

Are these not adorable?

They eventually slid down.
And when it got over his foot, he yanked that puppy off!
Once I turned them around (tighter end at top), they were just fine!

I think they pink pair she has are adorable.  I was tempted to buy them for my 5-year old to wear with skirts, but I don’t know if she would wear them!

Want your own pair?  Five in a Row sent me another pair in earthy tones of tan, brown, white and maroon (I think?  I’m not great at describing shades of red!)  I think they would be great for either a boy or a girl, depending on what you pair them with.  One lucky winner gets them!
