What if I told you you could get everything you needed to cloth diaper you baby from start to finish for only $240. Let me try another way. What if I told you I could save your over $1700? According to Buttons Diapers the average baby goes through $1500-$2000 worth of disposable diapers from birth to potty training. There are many different brands and ways to cloth diaper your child, but Buttons Diapers has a very easy to use diapering system that involves covers and snap-in inserts.
Buttons recommends you buy 8-10 covers, 18-24 daytime inserts (per size), and 2-3 nighttime inserts (per size). While you only have one cover size that fits babies 9-35 lbs and two sized inserts; small fitting baby 9-20lbs and large fitting baby 20-35lbs.
After being sent a few diapers for review, these diapers have already found a place in my routine as a go to diaper for caregivers, my husband who thinks pocket diapers are confusing, or a great night time option for us.
We were able to check out two of the covers. In addition to loving the colors, I loved that there was a double layer of PLU. We had no leaks due to soaking through even at night. I also really liked the exceptional double gussets that helped to contain the poop. They really did a great job.
I would like to see an additional snap rise for taller babies. (My baby is 20+ lbs). I did find that I had to un-snap all the rises in order to get a good fit on my tall baby. If I didn’t I would have poop coming out the back of the diaper. Once I figured that out we had ZERO issues which is great. The gussets were also a tad tight on his chubby legs, but I think as he gets more mobile this won’t be an issue.
The liners are super absorbent. The first night I used them overnight I forgot to snap in the overnight liner. My heavy wetter still woke up dry! (Although the liner was very soaked.) The overnight liners are a little bit longer and thicker. I’ve even used them when I knew we were going to be out and about as we tend to change less frequently then we do when we are home. The daytime inserts are 4 layers of microfiber with a layer of soft fleece on top. The nighttime inserts are
If we hadn’t already had a stash of other diapers, I could easily consider this being our only diaper. For now I plan on buying another cover and a few more overnight inserts to use this a night time diaper. It is the only diaper I have used that is consistently dry in the morning.
Ease of Use: A+
Performance with second insert: A+
Patterns: Not Offered
Overall: B+ These are a very good diaper option. They are easy to use, and work well. I look forward to adding a new cover and a few inserts to my night time stash.
- Covers: $11.00
