weehuggers review AND GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED










I'm always excited to test out new diapers. There has to be something that's bigger and better being made every moment! I approached weehuggers AIO to do a review/giveaway with them, and they were more than compliant!

Let me start with the packaging. An adorable heart shaped paper clip attached to a plastic baggy with loop tabs was in with my diaper. A very cute and personal touch, which I haven't seen with ANY other diaper.

I pre-washed the diaper only once (cold rinse, hot wash, cold rinse) before I let Zealand do the first test run. I am not a fan of hook and loop for the most part because of how Bum Genius' laundry tabs shrivel and cause the hook to loop on everything in the wash....errr. I liked how wee huggers doesn't have a laundry tab yet a removable tab cover...although I KNOW I will lose them and then not be happy. (Customer service will send you new tabs if you lose yours!!) Let me tell you, trying to get the tabs off the hook hand...is HARD! They say they have a kung-fu grip, well believe it!( My mom who has a bad wrist from falling last year and osteoporosis from breast cancer and cannot work this diaper, so I hope that means Zealand can't either!) I hang dry my diaper covers and shells, which is something you will need AT LEAST 48 hours to do with this bamboo diaper.

We were sent a large as Zealand is about 26ish pounds. I'm always leery of larges because Zealand is such a small, large KWIM? But his weight DOES fall into their large category. My mom was in town for the first reveal, and she commented on how it hung in his tooshie area. And it really did! He looked like a bug butt:) I was initially disappointed, going into our second trial. I pulled it up high and wrapped it around snug....much better. He still has a small bug butt, but I think it's because he has lots of room to grow into this diaper. (I think we need a medium) Definetly measure before you decide what size!

We took this diaper for a test run to Walmart (I know...don't get me started on that). Zealand changed into this diaper at 8:00am and played at the house before we headed to breakfast and to the store. By the time we got home, it was 1:00pm. He had leaked straight through. This could be for one or two reasons. 1. I used a crappy Free and Clear detergent that made my diapers stinky/ammonia-y and leak or 2. Because of the bamboo outer shell, these are not made to last much longer than 3 hours.

I love the gussets. REAL gussets. He hasn't had a bowel movement yet...of course he won't till after the review is up, (murphy's law) :) I also love the waterproof bamboo PUL, not polyester or vinyl feeling, but nice and soft. Before today I would have placed this diaper as 5th or 6th place. Now that I have fixed the bug butt somewhat, I can really see the potential and now place it 2nd or 3rd for a DAYTIME diaper!!



I like it better OVERALL than Wonderworks, Happy Baby, Bumkins, Bella Bottoms and Bamboo Bums
I like it better for EASE TO PUT ON/FIT than knickernappie, Fuzzi Bunz OS, Bella Bottoms, Happy Baby and Bamboo Bums (because it IS velcro)
I like it better CONSTRUCTION wise than Bum Genius 3.0 velcro, Fuzzi Bunz OS, Bumkins, Bella Bottoms and Bamboo Bums (no stuffing or covers needed)


Final synopsis:
Super cute! Super strong hook/loop! Super soft! NOT a nighttime diaper and not intended to be worn for a long amount of time. Easy to use with no snaps. Takes a LONG time to dry because of bamboo. Considerably trimmer than other diapers on the market. Great price for bamboo AIO.

My final HONEST opinion on cloth diapers in general:
I look for ease when I look to BUY diapers. I want one that I know when DH grabs it, it will last whatever we have going. I don't want to have to second guess or pack extra clothes. I don't like having alot of sized diapers because I have two babies in diapers! I like to throw in a couple of one size diapers in my diaper bag and not have to worry who I will need to change while we are out. I like to have my diapers transpose from day to night with ease. Don't get me wrong, I have my fair share of sized diapers and my fair share of diapers I don't trust at night. Sometimes I'm a bad mom, but hey, I have two babies, usually one on each hip WHILE pushing a cart, WHILE grocery shopping, so I forget to change a diaper or two. Sometimes they go 5 hours. My mission is to find the best ALL AROUND diaper, not the best make-do for now and watch the clock so we don't go over 3 hours and have a leak diaper.

Wanna Win one?!
