Offspring Cloth Diaper Review/Giveaway GO GREEN!

Prior to Aiden being born I had no desire to cloth diaper. The only experience I had ever had with it was when I was a child, my Mom used a diaper service for my little sister and used prefolds and pins and it looked like such a pain. My oldest son has books with random facts and came in one day and says to me, "Mom, did you know that it takes one diaper like 500 years to disappear and that's bad for the Earth?"  And that bothered me. And it consumed my mind for awhile so I started researching and found that cloth diapers have come a long way from when I was a kid! 

I was recently able to do a review for Offspring and I was sent 2 adorable diapers to try out and I was very impressed!  Not only were they super cute, one was yellow and the other was the black and red dragon print, but they really passed the test!  Aiden is what is considered a "heavy wetter" I suppose it's because all he does is eat, but I was pleasantly surprised how good these diapers are made!




Diaper Construction:


Pocket diapers are constructed with a soft Micro Chamois interior. Considered softer and more resilient than regular microfleece, this remarkable fabric helps keep baby dry. Let the microfleece “roll-out” as this feature actually helps prevent leakage. There is a hidden waterproof PUL layer with a 100% cotton exterior. No need for a diaper cover. Generous elastic around legs and back allow for a snug fit. Velcro (Aplix) strip and crossover tab allows for a wide variety of adjustments.



Each diaper comes with one microfiber/flannel insert. Microfiber holds more fluid and is less bulky than other fibers and makes for a slender fit. This versatile insert can be folded to give three layers of microfiber absorbency in the pocket OR used in a diaper cover (flannel side touching baby). Keep these inserts to use when baby reaches Medium or Large size as a "doubler".
 
We love these diapers! As indicated before in a previous post, we have personally only tried a couple of different brands of diapers and one of them is a well known brand and this diaper did just as well if not better than those we have tried. If you are considering cloth, consider Offspring before you go buy diapers anywhere else. They are adorable, affordable, and super absorbant!  They are excellent people to work with and you will NOT be disappointed!
 
Can't wait to try one?! You might not have to!  There's a giveaway!  Offspring is offering a cloth diaper of your choice to one of my readers. How fabulous!

I can't wait to try cloth diapering! I currently only have 1 diaper though and I know I'm going to need more than 1 diaper!

I like the chocolate pocket diaper b/c it is a nice neutral diaper. :)

I am going to cloth diaper b/c I have never tried it and feel that if I could save myself that much money and save the dump from all of those dirty diapers than why not! :)

I would choose the large celery green diaper if I won, because it works well for boys and girls.

I cloth diaper because it's better for the environment, saves money, and my kids seem more comfortable in cloth diapers. Plus, some cloth diapers are really cute!

I adore the Pocket Diaper (Small) Bunny Toile, but I suppose it wouldn't be useful without a small baby at Easter. I also like the Pocket Diaper (Large) Chocolate.

Why I've chose cloth diapering- I haven't done it yet. But I do plan to do it with the next baby, because I think it will save money and to help be a little more green in our world.

I did cloth diapering with my first because I wanted to save money, do something good, and help him potty train faster. I want to cloth diaper this one I"m pregnant with as well, but really need some more medium diapers!

I chose cloth diapering because I was tired of all the waste with disposable. And my son seemed to like the cloth ones better anyway.
