The Little Bee Co Review and Giveaway!

The Little Bee Company is a name that is gaining popularity among the cloth diapering world. Many love the fact that they not only have adorable cloth diapers with original (super cute) colors but also that for every diaper bought, reviewed, or won in a giveaway, they donate another to an orphan in need. Every. Diaper.

Melissa recently found a video that The Little Bee Company released and shared it with me. It’s from their first diaper donation drop, and I think it sums up the company’s heart more beautifully than anything I could say.

Jeniffer’s Thoughts:

When I first saw my diaper, I squealed at the squishy, fluffy cuteness! Some diapers just have that fluffy look, you know? This diaper is definitely one of them! I also squealed when I felt how incredibly soft the bamboo lining is. Oh. My. Word. I’m jealous of my daughter’s bum when she has this diaper on.

Japanese Cherry Blossom

 

I was blessed to receive the Japanese Cherry Blossom diaper, and it is my favorite shade of pink that she owns (and trust me…she has a lot of pink!) I love that each diaper represents a different group of people, of children who are hurting across the world. This diaper reminds me to pray for them. The Japanese Cherry Blossom represents, according to The Little Bee Co.:

In light of the excitement that has consumed us at The Little Bee Co. with the announcement of our arrival. We want to remember those who are currently suffering the devastation of the events unfolding in Japan. We lift each one up to our Heavenly Father and for the thousands of children and babies affected we would like to dedicate and unveil our first Little Bee diaper color as ‘Japanese Cherry Blossom’.{Deep Pink} (Other colors found here.)

The diaper comes with two microfiber inserts, one regular and one infant. They can be used separately or snapped together for overnight protection, too. There are 6 different ways you can use them! This isn’t my favorite overnight diapering option because the bamboo stays wet against the skin and because it looks extra bulky between the legs. But it did work without leaking! I prefer the soft, squishy bamboo for during the day, when the lining won’t stay against her skin for hours at a time. With one insert (and the right rise setting), it’s just the right combination of squishy and bulky. Not too much of either and just right. While this diaper is snug against my daughter’s legs, it doesn’t leave red marks even when it leaves an imprint of the diaper. The bamboo lining definitely helps in that area!

For us, this diaper is a bit small. While my daughter is on the medium rise setting, she’s running out of room in the waist. Even though most of her other diapers snap closer to her belly button, we’re snapping these closer to her side. Because there is extra elastic in the stomach, I think we will be able to use this diaper for several more months. We do have the room to grow on the rise, too, so I’m hopeful that we can make it last a while longer. Because of the elastic around both the tummy and the back, I do think this diaper would be perfect for a smaller baby and should fit earlier than most one-size diapers.

A feature that I love is that there are crossover snaps! These are great not only for itty bitty waists but also for snapping the diaper up when you’re out and about. Everything stays contained, and you don’t have to worry about the diaper leaking everywhere! This diaper also has a smaller opening for the insert that opens wide with elastic. The elastic is really stretchy all around the diaper, which helps when you’re stuffing the insert (or inserts!)

Overall, I do love this diaper! It’s absolutely adorable in all of it’s fluffy goodness, and it’s one that I love using to show off my daughter’s fluffy bum. The color is precious, too. The small concerns that I listed above are really more preference and usage differences, and they don’t affect how I feel about the diaper overall. In fact, I hope that we have another little girl one day because this diaper is just too sweet to use on one baby!
