Baby Bee Haven #fluffyxmas

My next Merry Fluffy Christmas sponsor is Baby Bee Haven.  Baby Bee Haven is owned and operated by Heather a WAHM with two daughters.  She started sewing cloth diapers over three years ago after feeling,
Disappointed with the cloth diapers I used for my oldest daughter, and feeling guilty for all the waste I created using disposable diapers, I went on a quest for the perfect diapering system.

One of the first things I noticed about Heather's shop were all the cute prints.  Her cloth diaper covers are sized, and Charis weighs 27.5 lbs. [towards the end weight for the mediums, but beginning weight for the large covers].  Thankfully, I decided on getting a large cover for her.

Heather's diapers are made with 1 mil polyurethane laminate (PUL) liner and a 100% (preshrunk) cotton shell with an aplix closure.  There are laundry tabs to help prevent snagging of your other laundry.  Sizing is as follows: 
Extra small: 6-15 lbs
Small: 10-20 lbs
Medium: 20-30 lbs
Large: 25-35 lbs
Extra large: 35-45lbs

When I first received the diaper, my first thought was, "This looks small."  But, I was surprised and quickly saw it works very nicely with a prefold or flat diaper folded up into a pad [I wish I had this diaper during the flats and handwashing challenge].  The cover also fit over Charis's Thirsties duo fab fitted diaper.  I prefer aplix closures on diapers because it helps me to get a better fit on my daughter and it's a little bit easier, and this is no different.  I also like that Heather's covers are sized because it is truer to Charis's size.  I recommend Baby Bee Haven and will keep these covers in mind if I need to buy more covers.

You can buy a cover for yourself at Baby Bee Haven or you can enter to win one for a Merry Fluffy Christmas which runs from December 1-5.

Baby Bee Haven sent me a cover to review.

  1. I so miss cloth diapers - it was a wonderful hobby. Alas, potty training is complete so no excuse. But I still occasionally enjoy reading about them.

    I am excited you are participating in Merry Fluffy Christmas.
