AMFC Sponsor Spotlight #13 *Mo Dia Diapers*




Mo Dia Diapers is another one of our wondeful sponsors for the A Merry Fluffy Christmas event coming up in just a few short hours.

I know I keep mentioning "favorite diapers" in these Spotlights, but I have had the opportunity to try some pretty awesome diapers. Well, Mo Dia is another one of my favorites!

They sent me this adorable one size pocket dipe to try out.



I just love how the tabs coordinate with the body of the diaper. It's little touches like this that set Mo Dia apart from others. Here are few more examples of their work:



Adorable huh?!

Not only are their diapers super cute, they are also very trim, extremely absorbant, and they fit great!

Another unique component of their diapers is a small strip of belly elastic. I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first because Devin is quite the chunk, but it really didn't bother him at all. In fact, it made me feel confident that he wouldn't pee out the top of the diaper. You know how sometimes your kiddo is between sizes on the snap setting? Well, this elastic will keep you from having to snap the diaper too tight or too loose. Snap it on the looser setting and the elastic will keep everything where it needs to be!


belly elastic
The body of the diaper is PUL, the inner lining is suedecloth, and the insert is hemp terry.


Let me just tell you... the craftsmanship of this diaper is incredible! The stitching looks like it could be on a mass-produced diaper. But it's not! It's made by MOMMIES! Two mommies to be exact!

Mo Dia Diapers is made up primarily of two moms that started our journey of cloth diapering with our little girls. Sarah and Hannah are both Registered Nurses and sisters-in-law who have grown closer as friends through pregnancy and enjoying having baby girls, as well as starting a cloth-diapering adventure. Sewing cloth diapers started out as a hobby, but we are now expanding to selling diapers to try to share affordable yet stylish cloth diapers with others. We live in central Michigan, about an hour away from each other, so sometimes we sew alone, but often we get together for sewing days.  Sarah works full time as an RN, Hannah part time as an RN both in hospitals in Michigan.  Our days off are enjoyed spending time with our babies and often sewing!

Our business name is a combination of our daughter's names, Moriah (currently 7 months, Hannah's baby) and Lydia (currently 9 months, Sarah's baby), as they are the inspiration (and test subjects) behind our diapers! We also enjoy the helping hands of some friends and family members in sewing our diapers, whether it be actually helping with the diapers themselves or playing with little girls while we sew!  As we grow closer as sisters and friends, our girls grow closer as cousins and friends as well!  Our husbands (brothers) often roll their eyes or sigh when we talk about buying something new to make more diapers, but they are both very supportive and :) both will change the cloth diapers and help with the diaper laundry too!

We love to make new combination of diapers!  Some of the hallmarks of our diapers that make them different is using an alternating color or pattern for our tabs (for example, we love to use prints for the tabs on a solid color diaper, or minky tabs, or solid tabs on a print diaper).  We also have a small area of elastic along the belly with our snap diapers for a little extra give and better fit!  We are always open to trying new things and welcome suggestions or custom orders.



Mission:  To make fashionable and affordable cloth diapers for a better reusable solution for today's diapering needs



Products:  One-size pocket cloth diapers, newborn size cloth diapers, and  inserts.  Diapers are made with waterproof PUL on the outside, cute decorative tabs, snap or hook & loop closure, and soft stay dry inner material (suedecloth, minky, or microfleece).  All inserts are made of hemp terry, hemp fleece, a combo of hemp and microfiber, or all microfiber.  All inserts are 2-layers of 5 inches by 28-30 inches of absorbant materials that can be folded for absorbancy where you need it most and provide quick drying.

Here are a few shots of my little guy modeling his Mo Dia:

AMFC Sponsor Spotlight #12 *Lynhea Designs*




Lynhea Designs is another one of our wondeful sponsors for the A Merry Fluffy Christmas event coming up soon.

Lynhea Designs is an etsy shop that carries all sorts of goodies. They have jewelry, mama cloth,sized fitted & AI2 diapers, and may even be stocking some pocket diapers in the near future! The materials for these diapers feature a hidden layer of PUL (on AI2s), soft flannel, and a snap-in soaker. Their newborn dipes even have a cut-out for the umbilical stump. The OS AI2 diapers they're working on are made of cotton, a hidden layer of PUL, and 3-layer fleece soaker.














The jewelry she currently has for sale is to help raise money to donate to Rescue Her-an organization designed to help rescue girls who are victims of human trafficking. I think that's pretty awesome!

Back to the fluff: The fitted & AI2 diapers she currently has in-stock are adorable and so are the tester dipes. I am looking forward to testing one for her soon. Be on the look out for my review coming up as early as next week!


My little line-backer gets to try the football themed diaper. :)
 Here's a little about Heather from Lynhea Designs:

I live in a little mountain town with a train that whistles, and a beautiful night sky where Pluto was discovered. Star gazing and camp fires are one of my favorite past times. If I could combine the beach life and the mountain forest town life, that is where I'd want to live!
I love coffee like I like my oxygen. But I'm good enough to limit it to 2 cups of coffee a day.

I married my true best friend. The guy who has proven he will be there for me thru thick and thin, and we will ride this roller coaster of life together. We have a son who is the light of our lives. We laugh so much at his antics. He loves being a little comedian and we encourage it. We are a family full of laughs...after all laughing is the best medicine right?

I am currently working on starting my own cloth diaper line in between being a caregiver for 2 other toddlers my son's age and trying to spread the word in my city about
Rescue Her. Right now my life is truly the ultimate balancing act. I need to make sure I spend enough time with my family, make my son's days intellectually stimulating along with keeping up with the laundry and dishes. If I succeed in this balancing act, I'll let ya'll know. ;)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lynhea Designs is generously offering one lucky winner one of her adorable fitted diapers!

That's a value of $15!

    AMFC Sponsor Spotlight #9 *Mom of Sasha*




    Mom of Sasha is another one of our wondeful sponsors for the A Merry Fluffy Christmas event coming up soon.



    Mom of Sasha specializes in custom wraps (Sasha Wraps), but also carries adorable military themed diapers. She has Marine Corps desert digital camo, Marine Corps woodland digital camo, Army digital camo, and Navy digital camo. The diapers are sized and they can embroider your baby's name or last name onto the bum of the diaper!

    They generously sent us one of their custom diapers to try out.


    My hubby is in the Army, so we chose the ACU (Army digital) pattern with our last name embroidered onto the back. This is a medium AI2. The ACU fabric is backed by a layer of PUL, the lining is a soft fleece, and the soaker is made of flannel and minky fabrics. The minky is great because it allows solid poop to just slide right off. It's super easy to use: You just fold the soaker and tuck it under the front flap (which is also made of minky!)


    Bum of diaper

    great fit!
     And check out this adorable little bootie!

    Mommy's little soldier
    Here's a little about Corinna, the mama behind Sasha Wraps/Mom of Sasha:

    "I'm a Marine Wife and Mom of 3 who loves inventing and creating items for Baby's, children and parents. I love meeting new people and sharing my love for natural parenting, breastfeeding, babywearing and cloth diapering. I take pride in my creations and love to hear that my products have been used and loved and then passed on to other families.
    Sasha's Cloth Diapers are designed differently than any other cloth diaper you are familiar with.  They are created so that they work! The cuteness is a plus.  They are All-In-Two Cloth Diapers.  This means that they have a Double Fleece and Pul Combination Cover and a lay in flannel soaker.  Lay in soakers are much more convenient than soakers that you stuff into other covers.  Who wants to reach in and pull out a dirty/wet soaker out of a cover?  Who thought that would be a good idea anyway?  You can choose to add a minky fleece center to your soaker.  The benefit of this is that the pee is pulled away from your child's skin and they don't feel wet.  This is good for babies and nighttime diapering.  Babies do not like to feel wet and even though you may want your child to feel wet in order to start potty training, you may not want them to feel wet in the middle of the night so that they wake you up.  Sasha's Cloth Diapers also dry much quicker than an All-In-One Cloth Diaper which has the soaker sewn into the cover.  We never thought that was smart either.  The Cover has velcro enclosures and fold in laundry tabs for washing.  Changing, Washing and Drying is easy with the Sasha Diaper."

    Mom of Sasha is generously offering one lucky winner a custom camo diaper of their choice!


    That's a $20 value!

    AMFC Sponsor Spotlight #8 *BabyKicks*




    BabyKicks is another one of our wondeful sponsors for the A Merry Fluffy Christmas event coming up soon.

    The specialize in pocket diapers, fitteds, and inserts which all contain hemp materials. This makes for awesomely absorbant dipes. Read on to learn more.

    All info taken from babykicks.com.

    Why hemp?

    We use hemp because of its durability, absorbency, and it's natural anti-microbial properties. This means your baby will be protected naturally from bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus.
    Furthermore using hemp, instead of cotton, really is better for the environment. Hemp does not deplete the soil; in fact hemp leaves return nitrogen back to the soil, which improves soil fertility, therefore requiring less fertilizer for subsequent rotated crops.

    Interesting Factoids about Hemp:

    Did you know ...
    • Hemp can displace cotton which is grown with massive amounts of chemicals harmful to people and the environment. Fifty percent of the world's pesticides are sprayed on cotton.
    • Hemp fibers are longer, stronger, more absorbent, and more mildew-resistant than cotton. The original Levi Strauss jeans made for the Sierra gold miners were made of hemp sailcloth.
    • At a volume level of 81%, hemp oil is the richest known source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (the “good” fats). It is quite high in some essential amino acids, including gamma linoleic acid (GLA), a very rare nutrient also found in mother's milk.
    • Hemp is good for the soil in which it's grown, as opposed to other crops that deplete the soil of nutrients.
    • You can't get high from industrial hemp.
    • Industrial hemp actually poses a threat to marijuana growers by cross-pollinating with their high THC plants, and greatly reducing the THC level in subsequent generations.
    • George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp.
    • Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper.
    • Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.
    3G Pocket Diapers:



    The BabyKicks 3g Pocket Diaper is a one size diaper that is incredibly thin and trim.  It features a luxurious inner lining that ensures only the softest fibers touch baby's most sensitive areas. The innovative micro fleece barrier design prevents wicking to the outside and special fleece leg gussets stop leaks and hold messes in while allowing airflow to help prevent diaper rash. No blow outs or inserts hanging out of the back of this diaper due to the front stuffing pocket. Side snap closures are long lasting, user friendly and prevent wing droop. Colorful snaps look cute and can function as an intuitive, color coded sizing guide (if you choose the multicolored snap option).  No cover required due to our super soft breathable waterproof outer shell.  Our 3g Pocket is sure to quickly become a favorite in your diaper stash. Especially with the unbeatable quality and value!





    New Features:

    Colors! Now available in your choice of 4 bright colors.

    Comes with a  new One-Size insert

    Unique Newborn snap closure for a secure and comfortable fit on the smallest babies.

    Wider front panel at the top for increased size range and better comfort.

    Wider pocket opening for easier stuffing.

    Trimmer design for a better, more tailored fit with less bulk under clothing.

    Thinner wings to accommodate chunky thighs.



    Features:


    One Size Design grows with baby from 7lbs/3.2kg to 40lbs/18kg.  The intuitive snap-down sizing system makes adjusting and finding the right size and fit super easy. You will only needs to buy diapers once, saving you time and money!


    Bamboo/Fleece lining:  The incredibly soft inner liner (against baby’s skin) is made of luxurious 30% Certified Organic Cotton and 70% Rayon made from Bamboo. The material will remain soft, absorbent and silky wash after wash.


    Air Gussets are made of a special fleece material and contain no PUL, which allows for even more air flow to help prevent rashes. The Soft fabric does not leave red marks on baby’s legs, but still protects against leaks and blow outs.


    Front Pocket allows for easy stuffing of diaper and gives you the option to customize the absorbency.  The front pocket eliminates inserts hanging out of the back of the diaper and prevents solids from leaking onto the insert.


    Side Snaps eliminates wing drop problem and are easy to use, durable and long lasting. The two rows of four snaps allow for separate waist and thigh adjustment and will give you a perfect fit. Side snaps are harder for toddlers to undo (no playing in poo), and make diaper easy to use as a training pant when the time comes. 


    Waterproof Outer Shell removes the need for a cover. Our super-soft breathable PUL is waterproof and makes sure baby’s clothes stay nice and dry.



    Organic Fitted Diapers:



    This fitted does it all and when we dreamed it up we had your baby’s comfort in mind. Our premier organic fitted is designed to be the only diaper needed from birth through potty training. Made of luxurious 50% certified organic cotton for softness, 33% natural hemp for absorbency and durability, and 17%% polyester for stretch, this diaper will wrap around baby hugging every curve and keeping messes in. The diaper even comes with a free Joey-Bunz insert and the features include:

    Great Fit:
    This diaper will give you the flexibility you desire and your baby an amazing comfort and feel with its trim-fitting design – no bulkiness here – while providing a wonderful fit!

    Side-Snapping Snaps:
    Side snaps make changing a breeze and eliminate wing droop. Fold the diaper inside the pocket for a trim fit on a newborn, or leave the waist snaps slightly loose for easy up and down on a potty training toddler (you can use this fitted as a training pant).

    Front Pocket:
    The unique front stuffing pocket allows for easy access and virtually eliminates insert shift. The pocket feature on this fitted gives you all the flexibility in the world to add as much (or as little) absorbency as your child needs – be it during the day with an added Joey-Bunz Insert or maybe at night with one of our ultra-absorbent Pre-Folds.

    One-Size Design:
    Our one size design grows with baby and this truly is the only diaper you will need! There is no need to figure out what size is right for your baby or worrying about your baby outgrowing the diapers you just bought. Our BabyKicks Organic Fitted fits newborns (7lbs/3.2 kg) to toddlers (40lbs/18kg) comfortably and securely. The color coded snap-sizing system makes adjusting and finding the right size and fit super-easy.

    Please Note: a separate cover is recommended

    AMFC Sponsor Spotlight #7 *Click-A-Doo Dipes*




    Click-a-Doo dipes is another one of our wondeful sponsors for the A Merry Fluffy Christmas event coming up soon.

    They generously sent me one of their awesome AI2s to try out. I am so excited to share my review with you!



    Let me start by tell you how much I love this diaper!

    Rochelle custom made this OS AI2 with snap-in soaker just for us, but she also has other adorable prints like the ones below.


    The shell of my diaper is cotton knit with a layer of PUL underneath, the lining is made of anti-pill fleece, and the snap-in soaker consists of 2 layers of hemp/cotton french terry sandwiched between a layer of bamboo fleece and a top layer of bamboo velour. I love how soft the inside is, and I know it must be so comfy for Devin!


    As you can see, the tabs are very wide, which to me, seems that it would make for a more comfortable fit, and because it rides high, it actually stays in place. It's extremely absorbant, and though I haven't tried it overnight yet, many moms are raving that these diapers have become their nighttime solution.

    I cannot tell you how much I love this diaper! Between its high absorbancy, great fit, and cute factor, it is definitely one of our favorites. There's no doubt that I will be adding more to our stash very soon.

    Here's a little about Click-a-Doo Dipes:

    "When my son was about 11 months old I started looking at the idea of cloth diapering.  I was getting so tired of the cost of disposables and having to buy them so often.  Not to mention the thought of what it was doing to the planet with so many people just like me, and the waste it created.  It took me about a month to decide to finally jump in.  It was hard to spend $100 on diapers up front, but I knew in the end it would pay for itself.  I had only intended to do cloth on a part time basis since he was in daycare, but I knew it would make a big impact even if it was only when he was home.  The moment I put his first diaper on I was hooked!!   

    The next thing I  learned was how addicting it was buying fluff!!  Once I had a good working stash I decided I wanted more "cute" diapers.  This quest lead me to places like Hyena Cart and Etsy.  I was introduced to another world of the CUTEST cloth diapers!  I then very meekly attempted to try to get some of the more popular diapers, however all attempts failed. :-(  I then started thinking, I know how to basically sew, I just may have to learn a few techniques, but maybe I need to just figure out how to make my own.  So from there I took on the challenge of trying to figure out how to do it.  It was a learning process that was often very frustrating, and I had many seemingly failed diapers.  Each attempt taught me a lesson though, and I was able to correct it on the next one.  I love a challenge, and I have a huge drive to be the best at what ever I do. This has worked out well for me in this situation because I think I have a pretty great diaper now that I know is just as good if not better then all those diapers I was never able to buy.  I love the process of seeing a print and turning it into the cutest diaper!  I also love knowing not only are they cute, they are highly functional.  I have always thought it would be great to have a business of my own, but knew the key to success is having something you are passionate about.  I have finally found that passion and I love it!!!"

    Click-a-Doo Dipes is generously offering one lucky winner a custom diaper of their choice, as well as a hemp/terry doubler!


    That's a value of over $25!
