Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
When I had lil C it was just expected and normal to use Disposable Diapers.  I have heard about cloth diapers at that time, but I just assumed that was something that was from the past…and No one did that anymore. But I was wrong.  Until one day I got to babysit one of my friends lil ones … and She did cloth diapers!   We discussed the pros and cons of Cloth Diapering.  With peanut I have decided that I am going to try my hand at a little CD!   Lotus Bumz sent me a Cloth Diaper to help me get my stash started and get my hands on Cloth Diapering.

A little about how Lotus Bumz got started:  Lorain started Lotus Bumz when she realized that there is a great need for an affordable cloth diaper. After deciding to go with cloth diapers with her new born and seeing the physical benefits that it had on his skin as well as knowing that using cloth diapers is so much better for the environment then disposable diapers she decided more parents need to know and and be able to afford this great way of diapering.

LB-diaper-info2Because we didn’t know what we were going to have, I opted to receive a Gender Neutral pattern Lotus Bumz Diaper.  I received the Yellow Chevron Print.  When it arrived I was as excited as a little kid at Christmas. This is my Very first Cloth Diaper!  Right away, I realized it was a pocket style diaper.  Because it had a padding separate from the diaper.  Boy do I have a little to learn.
Here are some of the features I have learned from the LotusBumz Website:
*All PUL outer lining
*Three rows of adjustment snaps to allow for a small/medium/large size in one diaper
*Hip snaps to prevent the sides from drooping
*Waist tab overlaps for extra-small waist size
*Inside is made out of super soft fleece
*Pocket diaper includes a 3-layer microfiber insertlotus-bumz

Being a new cloth diaper mama, I had to look up proper care of these diapers.  When you first get the diapers, they recommend that you wash them at least 3 times before use.  This will not only help make sure they are clean, but will give them their full absorbency.  They say to not use Fabric softener – because that can harm the absorbency levels.  Instead they recommend using Vinegar.  A great solution for everything. I cant wait to have this little one – so I can get more Cloth Diapers.  I have my eyes  on the Blue with Black wings Next!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I agree that Blue with black wings is beautiful! I have never seen a diaper with different color wings!

  2. Oh I LOVE these! These are the style I use and I’m always looking for more cute cloth diapers too, thanks for sharing!!

  4. My kids are 15-19 so this post isn’t for me BUT I do work at a daycare and one of the babies uses these diapers. They are ok and not as annoying as back in the day cloth diapers with rubber pants.

  5. I used to use pocket diapers like these when my kids were little. I bought preemie sized prefolds to use as extra inserts. It helped stretch my cloth diaper budget because regular inserts can be a bit expensive.

  6. I am a CDing mama and didn’t start it when I had my first baby because like you, I didn’t know these things exist until almost three years ago when I had my second baby. CDing I would say is not for everyone and yes there are pros and cons, but I certainly enjoyed cloth diapering my girl in those cute and fun diapers. I use coconut oil though as my butt cream because it also works for the Yeast Infection. Now, we are on potty training and sad to say I am going to part was with Cloth Diapering. I have not tried this brand though, but BumGenius is always my favorite especially traveling.

  7. omg a chevron diaper! do you think i can convince hubby to let me have another baby to get more diapers?

  8. I absolutely adore pocket diapers, because people watched my kids and used our cloth diapers without complaining. The chevron is super cute!

    • Ive never Cloth Diapered my own kids, but I did baby sit my friends lil ones that were CD. Love the way they make the lil babies tushies look! :D

  9. I’m all about the cloth diapers. Just wait until you start finding some of the other really cute brands out there. You’ll be hooked! Check Facebook out to see if you’ve got a local cloth diapering group. A good, friendly community is worth its weight in gold. (Really. All 200+ of us in my city combined is a *lot* of gold, and it’s most definitely worth it.)

  10. My little one isn’t even here yet and I think I’ve falling in to that “mom addicted to CDing” group. There are so many brands and options to try! I can’t wait for her to get here so we can figure out what really works best for her and for us so we can keep building our stash!
