KMC Designs AI2 Diaper Review




I've been using cloth diapers with my third child and love all the benefits cloth diapers have to offer for your baby, your wallet and the environment!  My stash primarily consists of pocket diapers, prefolds and covers but I think it's important to experiment with all the varieties out there when it comes to cloth diapering your child. Materials used in cloth diapers range between manufacturers and trying out everything helps you decide what type of diaper works best for your family. I love to show support for WAHM products and I am happy to be able to share my first WAHM cloth diaper review with you today! 
KMChase Designs sent me one of the AI2 (All-In-Two) diaper designs to test out.  I loved how she personally took the time to sign the detailed invoice, add all warranty info and looking over the diaper, I immediately saw that it was constructed of high quality fabrics. The outside of the diaper is a minkee fabric in Pink Camo True Timber print.  It is very smooth like velvet.  The inside of the diaper is a soft black microfleece.  Between the outer and inner layers is PUL making the diaper leakproof.  I feel that this diaper was put together thoughtfully and professionally.  There are 5 levels of color coded snaps to adjust the waist size and 3 levels to adjust the rise of the diaper which helps the diaper go from infant size to potty training size easily.  The soaker is snake style, meaning it's long to add absorbancy in the areas you need it most.  It's made of a double layer of Bamboo terrycloth and snaps right into the diaper on the backside. 
 
When I put it on Karebear, I loved the way I could customize the snaps to fit her contour, making the diaper as trim as possible.  I think the fit was perfect.  The legs were snug with no gaps at all.  I usually change Karebear's diaper every 2-3 hours.  The first time she wore this diaper, she was able to get by for 3 hours, easily.  The double layered bamboo soaker has AMAZING absorbancy and when I pulled it out, the microfleece inner didn't even feel damp. 


Laundering the diaper is simple, throw it in your normal diaper wash. You can remove the insert by unsnapping the two snaps it has or just wash it attached, if you like.  I wash in cold rinse, warm wash, warm rinse with All Free & Clear due to my daughter's sensitive skin.  I felt that this diaper had materials that stood up well to baby excretions and after several washes it still looks new!  The craftsmanship is terrific!
KMChase Designs doesn't just make cloth diapers, but you can also order other items such as crib sets, diaper bags, wet bags, car seat canopies, nursing covers, blankets,mommy purses and much more! Located in California Visit KMChase Designs on Etsy- www.etsy.com/shop/KMChaseDesigns, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/KMChaseDesigns, and join the BST Facebook group here- www.facebook.com/groups/KMChaseDesignsBST
What do I like most about this product?  I loved the materials this diaper was made with, they really are heavy-duty but soft.  Especially the insert!  I am going to be getting more of those, for sure.
Is there anything I'd change about this product?  I think it functions wonderfully, and I don't have anything I'd expect more from in an AI2. I really love this diaper! 
I'm giving the AI2 by KMChase Designs a 9 out of 10!
My Brest Friend
Nursing Pillow Giveaway

Hosted by: mama pure
Sponsored by: My Brest Friend
The Milk Makin' Mamas Event is a month long celebration of breastfeeding & pumping product reviews, giveaways, education & inspiration. Be sure to check out all of the giveaways in the event.
There are a few must have items for a new breastfeeding mom and one of those is a supportive nursing pillow. When baby is still so tiny and can't support them self at all it really helps to be able to have a pillow help you and let you figure out how to comfortable breastfeed. My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow is the #1 choice of lactation consultants and millions of moms worldwide. And for good reason!
My Brest Friend has many advantages over crescent shaped nursing pillows. With the wrap around design it has built in back support to help prevent "nursing back" pain. The clip also prevents sliding of the pillow to help keep baby in the correct position (great for when baby starts to get wriggly too!). There is a pocket on the front which can hold all of your nursing essentials whether it be a water bottle, nipple cream or a toy for baby to hold once they are old enough.
Want to learn more about My Brest Friend? Read the full review at mama pure.
This giveaway is open to the US and will run from 8/11-8/25. Void where prohibited.

Drool Babies Review and Giveaway


I love babywearing!  I find it so comfortable with my baby snuggled against me while I'm shopping or just out and about.  It's nice to have them close and feel safe.  It has always felt awkward hauling around a car seat or pushing a stroller to me.  So naturally I opt to carry my little Karebear (my baby's nickname). She is always ready to ride in her Mystic Purple Ergo.  I'm thrilled that my oldest child often requests to wear his baby sister.  Even my hubby will sport a back carry with Karebear here and there!  But I noticed she would chew on the straps, especially while she was teething. Luckily, I came across Shay, a local mom who makes a wide variety of suck pads for carriers.  Suck pads are a great way to protect your carrier straps from baby drool, spit up and little teeth. It doesn't matter what kind of carrier you use, Drool Babies can customize the suck pads to fit just about over anything. Drool Babies also makes toppers for carriers, chewy toys and quilted taggie blankets.  Check out all the amazing products on the Drool Babies Facebook page!  I know you'll love all the designs available!
I was able to test out and review the adorable pink and purple unicorn suck pads.  Immediately, I recognized the quality of the pads.  The color schemes are well thought out and creative. They are sturdy, yet made of a soft knit fabric.  The ribbons are attached securely to provide you the opportunity to attach toys to the pads.  They are conveinently fastened with plastic snaps for easy removal.  Washing them is simple, cold water with like colors and lay flat to dry.  Iron if needed. 
Karebear was facinated with this addition to her babywearing experience.  She scratched at the snaps, flicked, tugged and sucked on the ribbons, and gummed up the fabric.  It seems to make it even more enjoyable for her to have Drool Babies along on the ride. 
Here's big brother showing off his babywearing skills!

What do I like most about this product?  I love that it's a fun fashion accessory to dress up babywearing a little more. I also have to mention that babies really seem to like this accessory, it keeps them interested. I'm a happy mom with a happy baby!
Is there anything I would change about this product?  The answer to that is a simple no. 
I am rating Drool Babies a 10 out of 10!
