Booty Buns Cloth Diaper Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Let me start this out by letting you know that this is not my first time using cloth. I tried clothing diapering for the first time while we were living in Las Vegas, NV. I used the only cloth diapers i could find that were at Babies R' Us, gDiapers. Now for some they work out great, but for me it was a DISASTER! I had a blow out almost every diaper change. Clothes were soaked. It was just a mess. So, naturally with any kind of negative experience I went to the dark side! I was officially ANTI-CLOTH. I do have to say, my reasoning behind choosing cloth at the time was not the right one. I was only looking at the savings, not the benefits or the different kids of cloth diapers.


I was first introduced to Booty Buns Cloth diapers by the creator, owner and friend Shannon Carillo. At the time we met I had no idea she had this amazing company till the topic of cloth diapers came up one day when she was at my house. I told her my horrible experience with gDiapers and how it was just a mess and I would NEVER do cloth again. At the time she was getting ready for THE GREAT CLOTH DIAPER CHANGE and offered to give me one of her diapers for free. She told me that her diapers can fit a child from 3lbs to 45lbs. I excepted her generous offer, cause I mean who doest like free stuff right? And the fact one diaper can fit from newborn to potty training size? My 4 year old wasn't even 45lbs yet! When she brought it over she explained how to use it and how to wash it. Sounded simple and easy to do. She said to use it for one diaper change a day and see how I like it. Well with only one diaper I wasn't really getting the full effect of the whole cloth diaper experience. So I brushed it off. Then on May 11, 2012 our third daughter, Meghyn, was born. My husband and I had a serious heart to heart conversation about how the price of diapers and wipes were going to go up now that we have two kids in diapers. We were in a struggle as it was, so the thought of $200 a month on diapers and wipes scared us. Whats if we couldn't afford it one month? So, together as a couple and as parents that cloth diapers was what we were going to have to do. I was going to have to dive in and pray to God i wouldn't drown. We purchased our first cloth diaper 'stash' in July 2012, and it was Booty Buns Cloth Diapers lifetime supply (20 diapers).

BEST DECISIONS WE EVER MADE!!! (besides our sweet widdle biddles and getting married)

A little about the company:

The company was founded in 2011, by Shannon Carillo and her beautiful family. After a year of research and reading a lot of reviews she came up with a TRUE one size diaper that includes everything you need! The diaper with 2 sizes of inserts, liner and wipe. Another great part about this company is for every diaper sold, a diaper is donated to a child in need. Whether over seas or here in the great USA, she is helping with covering widdle booties everywhere. She is the official cloth diaper sponsor of Operation Showers of Appreciation .

This is our newest Widdle Biddle Meghyn about a week in a half after she was born. We did a photo shoot for Booty Buns. As you can see Meg still had her stump, and the diaper didn't cover it or brush against it. It was free to move about the cabin. ha ha. She weighed in at 8lbs 11oz when this was taken, and i have to say the diaper fit amazing. It was a bit bulky, but this is a one size diaper. so it grows with the child and is expected. In this picture she is on the newborn/size 1 row of snaps.

And here is our Widdle Biddle Meghyn now! She is now a whopping 13 pounds and the diapers are still going strong and fit amazing. And she even had to go up a row of sizing snaps. so she moved up to the size 2/3 row! She is EBF (exclusively breastfed) baby. So, those of you that breastfeed, know that the poop is runny, watery, seedy...well just a mess right? Well we haven't had a blow out...EVER!! And let me tell you, we have had some pretty messy diapers that if she was in a sposie (disposable diaper) it would have not been a pretty site.

Now remember what I said earlier? we have TWO kids in diapers...


This is our middle Widdle Biddle, Makynlie. She is a year in a half and 23 pounds. The diapers are amazing on her as well. The fit is perfect and once again no blow outs! I especially love the snug fit around the legs and the top of the diapers. Its a feeling of "I'm safe from a mess on my shirt" feeling!
