|Inside of the diaper|
My diaper came about 2-3 weeks ago. So at this point it has been wash (prepped) fully and I have worn it on Baby K enough times to get a really good feel for it. I have to say that the diaper itself is adorable :) with Red and White Strips all down the front and then the back and wings are Blue with White Stars!!! Baby K will be wearing this diaper ALL day on the 4th :) Especially since it is an AI2 and I can just change out the insert :) I can't wait :)
You can find Crissy stocking Hey Dude Diapers every Tuesday at 4 p.m. at her Hyena Cart Store. She has also teamed up with Taylor from Hipster Fluff to have a special group on Facebook for info, special drawings and to B/S/T your Hipsters and Hey Dudes!!! To be apart of the group you must request to join :)
A Little About the Diaper
|With rise folded down and cross snapped|
Hey Dude Diapers have a fold down rise or a snap down rise and cross over waist snaps. AI2s have two parts to the diaper, the shell and the insert. The AI2 shell is made up of cotton outer, a hidden layer of waterproof fabric called PUL, and then a very soft cotton velour inner. The OS diaper fits around 10-35+ lbs.
Hey Dude Diapers snake style soakers are four layers of organic bamboo velour, topped with two layer of 100% cotton flannel. When folded in half they create 8 thirsty layers (plus four additional layers of flannel.) Because the soaker is made from all natural fibers, it will become more absorbent the more it is washed.

Ease: AI2 are a little more tricky to use that just snap it on baby. But not that much harder :) All I do to put it on baby K is to lay her in the diaper, fold the top layer all the way up, I then fold the bottom layer of the soaker twice so there is a little more padding between her legs, fold the top layer 1/2 way down and then snap the diaper on her :) Once you do it once or twice you will know how it fits best on your baby and you will be a pro. I fold all of my AI2 soakers like this so the technique transfers from 1 diaper to the next.
Price: The Hey Dude AI2 is $22 which is a very reasonable price for a WAHM diaper. I don't think I have seen any that are cheaper but I know I have seen a bunch that are more expensive. Crissy also carries NB AI2s for $17, NB OBF Fitted $20, OBF Fitted OS $25, NB Hybrid $21, Hybrid OS $26, NB Hemp Fitted $22, Hemp Fitted OS $27, extra boosters for $4 and extra soakers for $6. Overall extremely reasonably priced.
When and Why I use it: I use this diaper during the day time. I could use it at nap because of its absorbency but I don't like to use my cutest diapers while she is sleeping :) I love to wear this diaper with just a cute little white tang top and no bottoms. It makes an adorable and patriotic look! I use this diaper because I truly LOVE it! I love the way it looks and I love the way it fits Baby K. I feel that this diaper will be able to be worn for a long time. Right now at almost 15 months baby K has the wings ALL the way crossed over. This is the ONLY diaper that I have that fits her like that. You could use it on smaller babies but you might have some extra wing left over :)
Recommend: Of Course I recommend Hey Dude Diapers!! Crissy has wonderfully constructed diapers, adorable prints and is just a pleasure all around to work with. She has been great with this review and is even bringing 2 different giveaways (You can find both under the giveaway tab, running 7/4-7/13).
Overall: I would give Crissy and Hey Dude Diapers an A!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the diaper :) If I didn't already have an over following stash of diapers I would definitely get the one in the Mickey Print. And I would love to try a WAHM Fitted!!! Maybe someday :)
I would like to thank Crissy so much for allowing me to do this review for her. It has been my pleasure getting to know Hey Dude Diapers and you!! You make a wonderful diaper that works great for my little girl!
