AMP Diapers Review and Giveaway

I received a Duo Pocket diaper in the mail the other day from AMP.  The first thing both me and my son noticed was how soft it was!  My son came over, Grabbed an insert, and ran away with it.  He thought it was a blanket!  He held it up to his face and cuddled wit it!  I loved it, should have gotten a picture, so I thought I should share that experience with you.

The diaper that I am reviewing is a diaper that can be used as an AI2 OR a pocket diaper!!!  All you do is either put in the insert for the pocket diaper...

or use the AI2 insert over the cover!

This diaper was really nice.  I was able to make it fit perfectly for my little one (or not so little...1 year old...28 lbs...haha).  It worked very well during the day.  For overnight I used one AI2 insert and one pocket insert and it held all of my super wetters messes!!!  It is super cute and runs at $18 per diaper, which I feel is under priced for the amazingness of this diaper.  It is a very superior diaper, better than any other pocket or AI2 I have ever used.  Again, it is VERY soft, fits great, and is VERY absorbent.  I love the ability to change between an AI2 or a pocket diaper.  This ends up allowing me to use the diaper cover up to 3 times without having to wash the cover (or use prefolds...I am not a big fan of prefolds).  If any other mama is even half as busy as I am, this is an AMAZING feature!!!!!

Mama Runs With Scissors Review and Giveaway


I received this package just a few days ago and the first thing I had to do was rip it open and see them!

The Kool Legs were amazing!  I love the colors and I love the fit of them on my chunky baby (I have had problems with the baby legs making marks on his legs because they were too small of a band for my son).

They also will look good with so many outfits he has, as you can see with the picture...I swear I didn't re-dress him or anything ;-)

Mama Runs With Scissors has many different adorable baby legs that is sure to fit your needs for them!  And I am almost positive that you can find a pair to match any diaper or outfit you would like to match them to!

Oh, and let me tell you about the shipping...can you say F-A-S-T!!!!!!!!

Review of Wee Essentials/LaDaniels

I received this diaper and was so excited to get it on my LO.  This diaper is not only absorbent but it is ADORABLE!

Let's start off with the fact that it comes wrapped up in an ADORABLE little package!  It makes you even more excited to get your fluff!!!!

I put it on my son and long behold...NO LEAKS!!!   Perfect fit!  All around A++++ fitted diaper!!!

One thing is that it does not have snaps or hook and loop.  You can use it just like a prefold (diaper pins, snappy, or just tuck it in).  I did not find this a problem at all.

Another great feature of this diaper is that there is a stitching across the middle inside the diaper.  This causes the inside not to move around (a common problem I run into at least).

I tried to get a picture so that you can see it, but I guess it didn't work so well.

Also, Lauren is offering a complimentary wipe to match your diaper!!!!  HOW AWESOME!!!  We all love free stuff right???


For the giveaway here is a picture of the diaper and wipe:

This is a size Medium Fitted Diaper that could be used with a boy or a girl.  If you are interested in this diaper, please read below the options to get entries:
  1. Write your name below for 1 entry.
  2. Visit her store (on right hand side of the blog entitled "ladaniels") and tell me one item of hers that you LOVE for 1 entry
  3. Follow her blog for 1 entry  at 
  4. Share this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, or a blog and receive 1 entry (can be done once per day)
  5. You MUST be a follower of Nicki's Cloth Diaper Reviews to be eligible for this giveaway!

If you have earned extra entries please let me know if you want to use them (or some of them) now.  For extra entries I have:
Chany: 11 entries
Ashley: 15 entries
Khrys: 6 entries
Star84vu: 1 entry

Please note that this extra entry option is now CLOSED!

The new extra entry option: Purchase something from Wee Essentials.
For every $.50 you spend you will earn 1 extra entry into the next giveaway of your choice.

Long day!!!

All day today I have been looking for new diapers to purchase.  I have a little bit of extra cash and would like to purchase some other brands that I haven't tried yet to get up for reviews.  Any suggestions ladies?  Is there any diaper that you guys have been dying to try but don't want to spend the money on just to find out what they are like?  Let me know so I can get some more brands up here.  I was going to do reviews today on the WAHM diapers that I have, but I think I should stay to the manufactured diapers until the blog gets up and going.

Thinking about doing a giveaway...EDITED!!!!

I will be doing a giveaway at 100 followers.  Please invite your friends!  I will be giving away a Thirsties Duo Pocket diaper of your choice.  I will be purchasing the diaper through and having it shipped to you through there.  To enter, Please simply become a follower and comment on at least one post to qualify!  Thank you!  Don't forget to share with your friends so we can get another giveaway at 200 followers! :-)  I will be using to help me promote my giveaways.  They put up posts of all the submitted giveaways and help out blogers like me :-).  Thank you Giveaway Scout!!!

Long day of washing and drying!!!

I love all of my diapers, but I think I may have too large of a stash (is that possible!?!?!) I had to spend almost all day today washing and drying diapers, not because they were all dirty, but because I love to change my son into new diapers every 10 minutes because they are so cute and fun!  Haha, yes, that is a sign of a cloth diapering addict.  Seriously, all I really do online anymore is look up new diapers that I would like to buy for my son!!!  How horrible is that?

Besides that, my day was as smooth as ice.  I don't own a washer/ I go to my husband's nanny's house to do diapers.  She is so sweet and gives me a break the days that I go over to do laundry.  I seriously barely have to do anything those days!  It's wonderful!  

More reviews to come tomorrow...time to spend time with the hubby!!!!  :-)

Shop Reviews

Number one goes to.... Sew Crafty Baby: This story is owned by a fabulous women named Jennifer.  She had the best customer service I have ever gotten (she phoned me even before I was a customer to help me out with some diaper issues I was having)!  Extremely fast shipping!  Her site is very user friendly and she even has an affiliate program where you can earn store credit for promoting her! On top of all that, she has wonderful pricing and many of her items include free shipping!

Number two goes to... This store is great!!  Has a wonderful selection.  Wonderful pricing! Great service, especially if you are in the area (free pick up and can get it the same day as ordering).  When I met the owner of this store, she was extremely friendly.  I was pleasantly surprised that she was able to meet me the same day that I ordered (she called me about an hour, if that, after I ordered).  I figured that I wouldn't be able to pick up until at least a day!

Number three goes to...
<a href="">Click here to visit Kelly's Closet</a>: This store is also very user friendly.  Free shipping on orders over $49.  Also has a lot of coupons and specials going on.  Okay shipping times, I paid for expedite shipping and received my order in 3 days!  Has everything that anyone could ever need/want!

Number four goes to... This store is user friendly also.  Offers free shipping.  The downfall of this store is that there are not very many different brands.  Mostly because their store is to promote their own diapers (BumGenius, Flip, Ecobum).  However, they do have the best prices for the BumGenius.  I used their promo (that is always going on) for their BumGenius 3.0's.  $89.50 for 6 of them.  Pretty good price!!! :-)
