Lalabye Baby OS Pocket Diaper - Review

Lalabye Baby Review
Outside of the diaper!
I have to say the absolute best email I can ever receive, as a blogger, is when an awesome CD store, manufacture or WAHM contacts me to review one of their awesome diapers!!!  When I check my email and see something for a new potential sponsor it makes me super excited!!  Just the thought of something new and different makes me want to squeal :)  and that is exactly what I did when I received an email from Melissa at Lalabye Baby!!!

Lalabye Baby is an awesome Cloth Diaper, family run, company based out of Southern Florida!  They have only been officially in business since late summer/early fall but have put a wonderful OS diaper on the market.  You can find them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to keep up with all the new happenings!!! 

About the Diaper (from Lalabye Baby)

Lalabye Baby Review
Inside of the diaper with PUL belly band
Lalabye Baby is a modern cloth diaper dreamed up by a mom with a vision!  Desiring to combine a love for cloth diapers and a passion for design, Lalabye Baby was created to provide a high quality, safe, eco-friendly diaper at an affordable price.  Along with our diapers, we hope to bring an awareness to the alarming amount of waste being produced by disposable diapers.  We look forward to all that God has planned for Lalabye Baby and appreciate your input and feedback!

Our diapers are one size pocket diaper designed to be used from newborn through potty training!  Using 100%Natural Bamboo Fibers and PUL (waterproof fabric) Lalabye baby’s diapers' are among the best.  Our diapers are designed in the USA and manufactured overseas.  Utilizing our global resources we custom create and design our diapers with your baby and ours in mind.

Lalabye Baby Review
large insert and small insert
  • Waterproof Exterior - PUL (polyurethane laminate).  This laminate-backed diaper fabric was originally developed for the medical community, but it's softness, flexibility and water-proof qualities make it perfect for cloth diapering.
  • Suede Cloth interior - Suedecloth wicks moisture away from baby, resists staining, and does not hold poo. In addition, suedecloth does not pill and stays new-looking.
  • Four layer bamboo inserts - Each diaper comes a newborn size insert and regular size insert.  Bamboo is one of the newest fabrics in the cloth diapering world. Bamboo is very absorbent, naturally anti-bacterial, and won't hold odors. It has a very silky and luxurious feel and stays soft wash after wash. Bamboo is also very environmentally friendly!
Lalabye Baby Review
Where the inserts snap together
  • PUL (waterproof) belly band - Having the PUL on the inside belly band helps prevent those leaks onto to clothes or crib.  This is especially true for those little tummy sleepers!  This also a front pocket making it easy for the inserts to agitate out in the washer.  No more unstuffing dirty diapers!
  • There's a snap on the inside to snap the inserts.  This prevents shifting of the inserts if you put it inside and also allows you to use the diaper as an AI2.  Just lay the insert on top of the diaper since bamboo can be next to baby's skin unlike microfiber.
  • Rainbow color belly snaps - no more trying to figure out the fit on baby.  Now you can tell your sitter, grandma or significant other how to use the diaper and make sure it's on right!
  • Back pocket & care label - Our diaper features a front and back pocket to help with the stuffing and unstuffing of the diapers.  The care label gives clear directions on how to wash the diaper.
Lalabye Baby Review
Color coded snaps!!!!  1 of my favorite things about the dipe!

My Thoughts

Lalabye Baby Review
PUL Belly panel and front pocket opening
Ease:  The only diaper that could be easier than a pocket would be an AIO :)  But if you are going to use a 2 piece diaper, a pocket is the easiest you will find!!  I personally like to use both inserts when I use this diaper.  I will usually use it for when we are going out somewhere and I want the diaper to last.  So I snap both inserts together, snap them to the diaper, stuff the inserts in the pocket and snap on baby :)  Super simple! 

Lalabye Baby Review
Even has a hip snap :)
Price:  At only $14.95 you can't beat the price!!!  That is a wonderful price for a OS pocket diaper with 2 BAMBOO inserts!!!  This is definitely on the low end of the price range for all the features this diaper has.

When and Why I use it:  I use this diaper when I know it is going to be at least 2 1/2 + hours until the next time I am going to be able to change Baby K.  With the 2 Bamboo inserts this diaper can really hold!  It is great for long car rides or when you are going to be walking around for a while with Baby on your back :)  I personally have been using this diaper for over a month and have never had a leak with it!

Lalabye Baby OS Pocket Diaper Review
Baby K from the front (the hair is from a Chewbacca doll)
Recommend:  I would definitely recommend having at least one of these diapers in your stash.  If for nothing else then nap time or long car rides.  The Bamboo inserts make it super trim compared to microfiber inserts and the colors available are adorable!!  And at this price point how can you say no :)  Plus if you keep an eye on Lalabye Baby's Facebook page they have had some awesome deals come up :)   

Lalabye Baby OS Pocket Diaper Review
Tush shot!
Overall:  I am extremely happy that I received that email one evening from Melissa to try this diaper out!  I have loved having it in my stash!  It has been a great addition and has become one of my favorite pocket diapers that I own (I have at least 6+ different brands).  I am always sad when it goes into the wet bag because then I have to wait until wash day to use it again!!  Baby K loves the bright pink of the diaper and is usually a top pick for her (when she is allowed to choose her dipe)!!!

All opinions are my own and not influenced in any way. This diaper was provided by Lalabye Baby for review. No additional compensation was accepted for this review.

Whispering Owlets On-The-Go Table Mat - Review

Whispering Owlet Review
On-The-Go Mat on the table :)
If you are like my family and have ate at a Chick Fil A more than once then you know of the throw away table mats that the kids get.  If not you probably still know what I mean :)  When little ones are small you usually just put their food on the table because you know that is where it is going to end up anyways!  But think about how much trash that is making everyday.  If you are a family of 2 and use the throw away ones 3 times a week then you are throwing away 6 more thing than you need too.  And think about how much traffic can go through a Chick Fil A in just 1 day.  I bet it adds up really quick!!!

Whispering Owlet Review
Cute Tags

So what can we do about it?  Just not use them?  Put Baby's food on the maybe clean table?  Have you ever thought about a reusable table mat for your little one instead of a throw away one?  I never had one when a was little but we also didn't eat out as much with her as we do now :)  Anymore sometimes it is much easier to just go and grab lunch or dinner and sometimes A asks if I can take her to breakfast and lunch.  I wish we didn't eat out as much as we do but sometimes it just works!

Baby K is just starting to use plates at home but when we are out I don't want her to throw a breakable plate on the ground so I usually just throw her food on the table (after I wipe it down myself).  But still who wants their kid eating straight of the table?  So I was super excited when I received the On-The-Go Table Mat from Whispering Owlets Boutique.  Now I have a cute and creative way to feed Baby K without just putting her food on the table or giving her a plate she might break :)

Project Pomona Jeans - Review

Project Pomona Review 2012

I have been lucky enough to be able to work with Meghan from Project Pomona on a wonderful review!!!  Meghan has been super sweet to work with, especially with everything being so busy with the holidays.  She has always been there when I needed anything and I always felt like I was important and cared for.

ReUsies Reusable Snack & Sandwich Bags - Review

Cow Patties Cloth Diapers Stuffable AI2 - Review

Cow Patties Cloth Diapers Logo

Cow Patties Stuffable AI2 Review
Outside of diaper
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Megan from Cow Patties Cloth Diapers over the past month!!!  Not only was Megan nice enough to sponsor a giveaway but she also allowed me to have the opportunity to review one of her diapers!!  She even let me pick the fabric :)

I received a stuffable AI2 diaper in the adorable Star Wars fabric!!!  Hubby loved the fabric since he is a huge Star Wars fan and I loved that Megan made it girly for Baby K by adding ruffles!!  Who doesn't love ruffles?!?!  Well I guess you wouldn't love them on your boy...or would you?  At 1st I was a little confused by the stuffable AI2 and wasn't sure how to use it.  But in reality it is a pocket diaper that you can use an insert in the pocket or lay it on top like an AI2.  Best of both worlds!  Make sure to check out Cow Patties on Facebook to see all the wonderful fabrics Megan has and to keep up to date with all that is happening.  You can also check her out on Twitter and Pinterest.

GroVia OS AIO - Review (sponsored by Bouncing Babies)

Bouncing Babies Cloth Daipers I contacted the wonderful Mamas behind Bouncing Babies about 2 months ago to see if they would be awesome enough to sponsor a hop that I had coming up during this busy and hectic time of the year we call "The Holidays!!" :)  They obviously said yes :) or you wouldn't be reading this right now!  But seriously they were wonderful enough to say yes and also to allow me to review something of my choosing.

GroVia OS AIO Review
Outside of Diaper
I looked through their extensive inventory selection and had an extremely hard time narrowing it down to just one item.  I wanted to try them all!!!  But I ended up deciding on a GroVia OS AIO diaper.  I had tried this diaper when I 1st started cloth diapering Baby K at 8 months and I have to say THEN it was my least favorite and I sold it within a couple months.  The 1st time around it leaked on me all the time and I could never get a good fit with it.

But my really good friend and fellow CD Mama kept telling me how it was one of her favorite diapers.  So when I had the chance to try it again I took it :)  And I have to say I LOVE it now!!!  I don't know if I got a bad diaper the 1st time around or if it was Baby K's build at the time but I am very sorry that I sold that 1st diaper now :(  But more on why I love it below!!!  But I want to make sure to thank Stacey and Megan for being such wonderful sponsors and allowing me the chance to review an awesome diaper!!!  You ladies have been wonderful through everything and I have loved working with you!!!  Also make sure to check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest where you can keep up with all the latest happenings at Bouncing Babies!!!

Diaper Donks Ruffle Bottom/Skirtie - Review

Inside of Diaper Donks diaper
I reviewed a ruffle bottom diaper for Jenny at Diaper Donks back in April as part of Baby K's 1st Birthday Celebration.  You can read the 1st review here :)  If you read that review then you know how much I love my 1st Donk :)  So you can only imagine how excited I was to receive a message from Jenny asking me to review another diaper for her!!!  Not only was I super excited to hear from one of the nicest WAHMs I have worked with but I was super excited to review one of her Skirties this time!!!

Outside of Diaper Donks diaper
So you may now be asking yourself....What is a Skirtie?!?!?!  Let's just say it is AWESOME!  Well it is but really it is a skirt that attaches to a Diaper Donks diaper!!! So now you can really show off that adorable diaper for your little girl while wearing the matching/coordinating skirt with it :)  Jenny was wonderful and allowed me to choose any fabric that I wanted from her huge stash for cuteness!!  I choose the pink Cranky Clouds HTF print.  It is adorable and I thought would be cute for a skirtie/ruffle bottom.

Thankvember Day #11

The Vagabond Studio

Today I am THANKFUL for all of our wonderful Veterans!!  They have risked there lives and sacrificed time with their families to make sure we are able to live in a FREE country and live our lives the way we do.  We are extremely lucky as a country that these men and women have sacrificed so we don't have too.  Thank you to our Veterans!!  We appreciate you and know that our freedom would not be possible without you!

Thankvember Day #10

The Vagabond Studio

Today I am THANKFUL for nothing profound :)  Honestly today I am thankful that Baby K has not thrown up anymore!!  Sadly the poor Baby woke up this morning covered in sickness :(  She stunk, her room stunk and it was not the way you want to start a Saturday morning!!  Especially when it is in the upper 60s!!  But thankfully she has been absolutely fine the whole day and it seems like maybe dinner did not sit right on her tummy.  But after 4 baths to get the smell away lets hope that it was food related and not actual sickness related!

Thankvember Day #9

The Vagabond Studio

Today I am THANKFUL for all the wonderful teachers I have had through my life.  From my very 1st teacher in Kindergarten, Mrs. Marker to my teachers in High School and College.  Without them I would not be the person that I am today.

Teachers make more of an impact on children than most people ever give them credit for.  The sacrifice their time, energy and hearts for our children and they doing it happily and willingly.  Not only do they teach them "facts" but they teach them how to be apart of society and how to be the adult that they will once grow up to be.  Parents think they have a hard time being the parent but teachers love ALL their children just as much and care just as much about who they will be come.  Teachers are there for children when no one else is or cares to be.  They put their heart and soul into every child and every little thing they teach them!!!

Homeschooling Week 7

Week 7 is getting better.  It only took us 1 1/2 weeks to finish this week up.  Some of that was because of Halloween and we took a couple days to make sure that we got a pumpkin and carved it :)  Hopefully next week will be a lot better.

We are slowly getting back into a real routine.  At this point I'm worried that with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years might really mess us up.  We are going back to PA for Thanksgiving so I am going to have to figure out how I want to work around that.  I might take a couple small things back with us but I think I might split a lot of it with the week before and then Monday and Tuesday.  If you home school how do you deal with Holidays?  Especially if you are already behind where you wanted to be?

Homeschooling Week 6

Week 6 still gave us a little problems actually getting through everything in 1 week :(  Right now unfortunately it is taking us about 1 1/2 weeks to 2 weeks to get through 1 week worth of school.  At this rate I'm not sure if we are ever going to get through the whole year!!! 

I'm hoping and praying that we are able to get back into a good rhythm in the next couple weeks.  I just have to force myself to do schooling with her.  I sometimes try to put it off until later in the day and then it becomes lunch and nap and it never gets done.  I am also still trying to figure out what to do with Baby K while working with A.  Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

Thankvember Day #7

The Vagabond Studio

Today I am THANKFUL for my Mama :)  She may drive me crazy at times but I know she is always there.  I spend more time on the phone with her in any given day than anyone else!!!  I know that I can always call her and she will be there to talk.  She loves both of my girls like nothing else and lets them get away with way too much stuff when we visit!!!! (HINT, HINT Mother!!!)  She lets A play on her scooter and do anything she wants and spoils both girls as much as she can!  A and Baby K both LOVE Mimi and talk about her all the time!  Baby K will sometimes just start yelling Mimi!!!  I am very thankful that we have gotten a lot closer since I graduated high school and in the last 10 years have formed a wonderful friendship!  Love you :)

Thankvember Day #6

The Vagabond Studio

So I forgot to actually press the publish button yesterday on this post :( So here it is now!!

Today let's keep this short, simple and sweet :) Today I am THANKFUL for the country I live in (US), the fact that we are a democracy and that we all come from a different walk of life!!! So no matter if the election goes the way you would like it to or not be thankful that you have the right to voice your opinion!

Today I am THANKFUL for my Daddy!!!  No matter what has happened in the past or what is currently happening he is always there for me no matter what I need.  When I need to vent or cry or whatever it may be I know I can call him and he will always listen and do what he can to help.  Like today I was at a lose for what to do anymore .  So I called him and within minutes after hanging up the phone I had a slew of emails in my inbox with links that might help!!!  He is always there to check on me and make sure that everything will be OK.

Today I am not THANKFUL for anything major.  Today I am thankful for the extra hour I get to sleep!!!  Sunday is the day that the girls and I get up the earliest out of the whole week so that we can make it to church :)  Since the girls usually sleep longer they have no problem letting Mommy and Daddy get that extra wonderful hour of sleep!!!  Thank you daylight savings time :)
