Free Fluff Giveaway!!

I'm so excited! I get to do my first "official" review and giveaway! Thank you to the lovely GoGo Natural baby store for sponsoring the review and giveaway! Another great local option for the Phoenix metro-area, but also has a FULLY fucntioning website with the ability to ship nationwide! I love helping to support a local work at home mommy!

I was provided with a yummy chocolate DinkleDooz one-size pocket diaper to give you my two cents on!



I'll start by saving I have a tendency towards pocket diapers. Something about how soft and streamlined (in my opinion) the inner is just makes me happy. I don't mind other diapers, I am a junkie afterall, but if I could re-buy my whole stash, I'd probably have 80% pocket. That being said, I LOVE this diaper! Let me break it down for you.

The diaper itself comes in 7 solid colors. I got to test the new color chocolate. I love that the snaps are a contrasting color to the solid chocolate PUL shell, giving a solid diaper a little bit of whimsy. It comes with 2 microfiber inserts; a large and a small. The pricepoint can't be beat. Only $14.95! For a ONE-SIZE!!



Some of my favorite features:
It has probably one of my favorite snap closures on a diaper. Sure, it's got the common snaps on the rise setting, but I really like the snaps for the hip. It has the two rows, one for the hip, and one for the legs. Perfect for my narrow waisted, somewhat chubby-thighed little B. There is also a "wing-drop" snap to keep the excess fabric flaps from drooping on the sides of the diaper. Additionally they have a "flap-over" system where the flaps overlap and allow the snaps to fit even the tiniest of babies! Needless to say, I adore their snaps!


For a one-size diaper, these are probably some of the most trim out there. I love that I can have B wear this under some of his jeans which, let's face it, are sometimes less than forgiving, and they still fit. It's great because I don't have to worry about what pants I'm putting on him based on what diaper he's wearing at that moment. Despite it's super-trimness (is that a word? It should be) it's still very absorbent. Even after being strapped in a car seat or taking a nap, no leaks!



The pocket feature is fantastic. Not only is the pocket nice and wide to make for easy stuffing, but it has what DinkleDooz refers to as their "Flap-back" system. A little flap of fleece (try saying that three times fast!!) to cover where the insert goes. GENIUS! On a couple of my other pocket diapers, I find myself tucking the insert back in, or under the outer shell. This "flap-back" makes it so I don't have to do that! No more escaping microfiber which can be harsh if constantly rubbed on sensitive baby skin. 



I've been playing with this diaper for a couple weeks now, to make sure I could get a thorough review, from wearing, to washing, to staining. I'm happy to say that (TMI WARNING) B tested this diaper well. :) I got a good #2 out of him and was actually excited to wash and see how it did. I didn't have a diaper sprayer at the time, so when I washed the diaper, I was a little nervous, but ALL the staining came out! There were a little dark spots around the leg elastic, but with the help of our lovely Arizona sun, they came right out. No extra washing, no rinsing, dunking, soaking, etc. Just my normal wash routine and hang dry outside. While we're talking about washing, the prep for this was super easy. I did my normal wash/dry routine (cold rinse, hot pre-wash/wash/extra rinse, extra rinse cycle--I have an HE frontloader, this is typical for me--and line dry). After this one routine the diaper was ready to go! Super convenient! 

Some things I would change:
Technically, there is nothing I would change. I think the functionality is great and can't wait to see how it stands the test of time. The ONLY thing I would suggest is prints. I'm a sucker for cute cloth prints. Solids are great for being gender neutral, for re-sale, and for using the same diaper for different babies, but I LOVE me some prints! While I appreciate the two-tone (one color shell/different snaps) on some of their colors, I would be thrilled to see a fun pattern or two! :)

If I had to rate this on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being "a waste of money" and a 10 being "buy this diaper for your entire stash" I would give it a 9. Just because I would want a little more diversity in colors/prints for my stash. But it's a great one to stock up on nonetheless!

As I mentioned before GoGo Natural has provided me with this diaper to review and  has agreed to provide a FREE DinkleDooz One-Size diaper in any color to the lucky winner! BUT since GoGo Natural is awesome and thinks all my readers are winners, they've provided a discount code for 10% off  (KZ4AZ2012) for everyone! With free local pick-up in the Phoenix metro-area and free shipping for domestic orders over $75, what a great way to support a local WAHM while getting great quality products!

    1. Thank you! P.S. the snaps look orange but they're actually more red. I hope that doesn't change your answer! :)

  2. I like the green one. I have been hesitant to try pocket diapers. I really like the one size, all-in-ones and that is what my whole stash is. They are just so convenient and easy but I am interested in checking these out. :) Thanks for the review!

    1. Oooh...I love pockets (clearly :0) I find it oddly cathartic when I'm folding and stuffing them. It's like my own personal little ritual when I sort the inserts and the shells. I'm slightly OCD I think, but I LOVE it! :)
