Loving my Pink Lemonade Shop Cloth Pads #PLS

plsre

Sizes Available: 7 Sizes  

Topped: Organic Bamboo Velour | Minkee | Bamboo Fleece

Inner Core (absorbent layers):  layers are made of bamboo fleece

Backing (waterproof layer):  PLS pads are backed with water Resistant Windpro Fleece

Extras: All pads are wing style and are fastened with a quality poly-resin snap

Absorbency: I used my PLS pads after a month of not getting my period, due to still breastfeeding so my period was a bit heavier then other months. PLS had me covered I did not leak once. I did however change my cloth pad every time I went to the restroom. The flow went right down on the center of my pad, that just shows to prove its an awesome pad to me. I have a few other pads that the flow goes down to the wings, but that did not happen with my PLS. 

Workmanship : Sue uses nothing but the very best fabric materials for her pads. These pads are made with lots of love and attention to detail. They are high quality pads in every way. 

How may you ask? Fabric materials used are high quality (bamboo velour, bamboo fleece, minky, wind pro fleece), lots of LOVE!!! 

Style|Fit : Pink Lemonade cloth pads are rounded  front and back. The fit is great, after you figure out what size works best for you. I notice, I like longer pads I feel more covered that way. Really just depends on what you like and what fits your body frame. Also should I mention that I wore my pads with tight leggins and you could not notice them 🙂

My Stats:

26 years old| 160 lbs | 5’5

Normally I am heavy first 2-3 days and after that it becomes lighter.

Overall: I am completely in love with my Pink Lemonade Pads. I currently have 7 of their pads, and cannot wait to add more to my stash. I am currently still breastfeeding my son, so there are some months I do not get my period, but when I do. I love using my PLS pads. The quality and workmanship of these pads is just amazing. Not to mention Sue whom is a sweetheart and her Assistant Alex. They offer such a great customer service, which to me, is key to a successful business. Sue offers an array of pattern choices, I think thats the hardest part in choosing 🙂 These pads are totally affordable, and Sue is always offering discounts on her pads. Making it easy for you to build a stash. You will not be disappointed.

I Love Cloth Diapers

Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 10.21.26 AM

Why do I Love Cloth Diapers???

Money Saver: My family and I save a lot of money while cloth diapering, in the beginning it might sound like a lot of money but in the long run it actually becomes a “great investment” especially if you reuse them for more then one baby.

Better for Babies: Cloth Diapers on your babies bum is 10 times better, then all the chemicals that are in disposable diapers. My son has very sensitive skin so cloth for him has been the best thing.

Cutest Bums: I mean have you seen these cute prints and colors you can always coordinate to every holiday or event. I love cloth diapers that have awesome prints. Our little ones look adorable. This is totally just a bonus.

Eco-Friendly: You will not be throwing these cloth diapers away after every use. Did you know that  Disposable diapers generate sixty times more solid waste, they consume 2.3 times more water, and require 20 times more raw material such as crude oil and wood pulp than cloth diapers. To use disposable diapers on a single baby for a year, it takes over 300 pounds of wood, 50 pounds of petroleum feedstocks and 20 pounds of chlorine. <— Um thats crazy so cloth diapers definitely outweigh that by far.

I asked this same question on my SewFatty Facebook Page and here were a few responses.

” It saves me money and they are so cute! And I love knowing that my daughters delicate skin is safe from chemicals.” -Laura 

” The cutesy prints! And never having to worry about running to the store to buy diapers. Everything I need is right in my home.” – Amanda 

 “I love that I am not only saving money now with cloth diapering, but also down the road for future children to come.” – Bryanne

Bamboozle Stretch Fitted Review

logo_bummis_en

Bamboozle Fitted diapers have been on my “TO TRY LIST” my son has become such a heavy wetter at night, I figured fitted’s might be the way to go for overnight diapering. I had the opportunity to review this amazing fitted cloth diaper. Here are some features and my experience with the amazing Bamboozle Stretch Fitted.

Bamboozle Features:  the super soft BAMBOOZLE is made from gorgeous stretchy rayon from bamboo. Two sizes will take you from teeny-tiny (5 lbs) right through to potty training (35 lbs).

  • Super Soft made from Stretchy Bamboo Rayon.
  • Two sizes, size 1 (5 – 18 lbs) size 2 ( 9 – 35 lbs)
  • Slim fitting with multidirectional stretch – fabulous fit every time
  • Leak-proof design with adjustable legs and waist
  • Aplix fastening (like Velcro) – just as easy as a disposable diaper!
  • Hidden microfiber core and snap-in adjustable doubler increase absorbency and speed up drying time!
  • Fabric is durable and stays really soft, even when washing with hard water <–which I have.
  • Bamboozle comes in different colors which is awesome.

The Bamboozle has the snap down feature on both sizes to adjust to your little ones weight. The aplix is one of the strongest aplix I have ever used. While in the wash it did not come undone once which was very surprising since all my other aplix cloth diapers do come un-done while in the wash. The Bamboo rayon is so soft I can only imagine how comfy it feels on their bum. The fit of this fitted is a nice and snug the elastic is not incased therefore it just hugs babies legs without leaving red marks. Performance wise I was able to have my son in the diaper for about 45 mins – 1 hr. without a cover. We used the bamboozle overnight from about 10pm – 6am I did get some leaks the first couple times I used the Bamboozle with a Bummis lite wrap. After finding out the leaks I decided to add a doubler at night and that worked amazing, (keep in mind my son is a heavy wetter, the Bamboozle will reach its full absorbency after 10 washes). It is a very trim fitted compared to others, after a few washes the fitted soaker got a bit fuzzy around the edges since the edges are serged the diaper has also faded quite a bit after washing and drying, the aplix is still great and again its one of the best aplix cloth diapers I have.

Overall I liked the bamboozle its a very trim fitted diaper, I love the fit, the aplix is amazing. The bamboo rayon makes this fitted diaper very soft and comfy on babies bum. One thing I would change on the diaper would just be adding more layers of absorbency I think it would be great to have two pedals of inserts instead of one. My son enjoyed being in Bamboozle diaper he seemed comfy and looked super cute.
