I’ve been a very good girl this year. I won’t elaborate since you see me when I’m not sleeping and you know when I’m awake rocking someone or tucking someone else in! As such, I am going to go crazy with my wish list. Hee hee.
First and foremost, I would like more diapers, so I don’t have to wash twice per day anymore!
I have one Blueberry Minky one size diaper in blue latte, but there are so many other styles and patterns I’d like to try! The Blueberry One-Size Minky Bamboo Velour has a bamboo/organic cotton inner instead of microfleece. Then there’s the Blueberry One Size Bamboo Velour Diaper. Lastly, there’s the Blueberry Deluxe One Size Diaper in snaps and hook & loop. Microfleece wicks moisture away from baby’s skin, but it is man made, and some babies can be sensitive to it.
Some come in snaps only and others come in snaps or hook and loop (velcro applix). Generally speaking, I prefer velcro for ease of diapering and adjustability, but Blueberry’s velcro is apparently super strength! I have such a hard time getting the tabs off of the laundry tabs, I think the laundry tabs may just rip right off. However, I would not complain if Santa brought velcro!
The prints I love are:
My favorites are Sage on Chocolate and Lemon Lime. I try to choose gender neutral prints but I gravitate towards cute boy stuff! I don’t think any of these are too boyish for a girl, but I’m sure if we ever cloth diaper a girl, I will want to buy all the cute, pink & ruffly cloth diapers too. Eek now I’m feeling kind of guilty for not CDing my daughter.
The monkey print on the left is what I have and love. My daughter loves it too, she doesn’t want me to change her brother when he’s wearing it! The peace bears print on the right is the one I’d most love to have!
I think the blue hibscus is adorable and would be great for a boy or a girl.
Why Planet Wise? First off, they are PVC free and lead free. Did you know most zippers are painted with lead containing paint? Scary! The bags come in awesome prints and are incredibly functional. They have a locking zipper and hidden/sealed seams for no wicking. They can be washed & dried with your diapers, though I hang mine dry, as I also do with my PUL diapers. You can even use the wet/dry bags or large wet bags as a hanging diaper pail.
Planet Wise is family owned and has very family friendly employee practices. Not only do their products replace their disposable counterparts, their packaging is recycled/recycleable, and uses soy based ink. When your children are no longer in diapers, you can use the bags to transport wet bathing suits, dirty laundry, even use them to separate shoes or toiletries from the rest of your suitcase when traveling. I’m guilty of using plastic bags for all of these things!
