Home Sweet Homemade has teamed up with Buttons Cloth Diapers for a review and giveaway! They are generously offering two daytime inserts and two diaper covers in the winners choice of colors! 

Review of Buttons Diapers 

I first heard about Buttons Cloth Diapers when I was researching cloth diapers before my daughter was born. I had just purchased some other All-in-Two (AI2) diapers and was terribly disappointed that I hadn't heard about Buttons just a little sooner. Buttons Cloth Diapers were designed by a husband and wife team who believe cloth diapers should be easy to use and affordable for everyone. After using them, I would have to say they have done just that! 




When my package arrived, the first thing I noticed was the adorable presentation! I love it when a company goes out of its way to make your experience with them memorable! Buttons sent me a diaper cover in the new Charming print, a daytime insert and a nighttime doubler to review. 

The Cover

The cover is made with two layers of waterproof PUL and is very stretchy and soft. It has double leg gussets that do a great job at containing messes! The wipe clean interior makes this cover a very economical choice because it can be used multiple times before washing. Since I only had one daytime insert, I tested this cover with flats and prefolds as well. I absolutely loved how well it covered a bulky prefold fasted with a Snappi! Usually I have to fold and shove prefolds back into the diaper cover around the legs, but because the Buttons cover is so stretchy it contained the prefold beautifully with very little folding. 







The Buttons cover is a one size cover designed to fit babies from 9-35lbs. It fit my 16lb 4 month old beautifully on the second row of snaps or the medium setting. The covers cost $11 for solid colors and $12.50 for the prints that Buttons just released. 




The Daytime Insert

The daytime insert is four layers of microfiber with a fleece lining on top. I used this insert during the day for up to three hours at a time with no problems. It is amazingly absorbent and oh-so-soft! Partnered with the cover, I found this to be a very trim cloth diapering option. The inserts are available in two sizes, small and large. Small inserts fit babies from 9-20 lbs and the large inserts fit from 20-35lbs. The inserts are $3.50 a piece, regardless of size. 





The Nighttime Doubler

Wow. Now THIS is a doubler! I was a bit nervous about changing up my nighttime routine, but when I saw this doubler all of my worries vanished! The doubler is made with 6 layers of seriously absorbent microfiber. It is meant to be used with a daytime insert snapped on top so that no microfiber touches the baby directly. I found that combo to be too bulky for my baby so I stuffed a pocket diaper with the doubler and hoped for the best. Nine hours later I was pleasently surprised to find no leaks! Way to go Buttons! The doublers are $5.00 each and are also available in both small and large. 




The Buttons system is one that I can wholeheartedly endorse! It is an affordable and easy to use option that would be perfect for veteran cloth diapering parents or those just getting started. You can buy the diapers individually or in a pack. I love the Deluxe Pack that Buttons offers. For $215.00 you can have everything you need to start cloth diapering your baby! That is incredible!
