I was recently approached by a cloth diaper making wahm to review one of her diapers. I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how extremely excited I was because I’ve been stalking her diaper page and drooling over her creations since she opened up shop.
Ashley, the amazing mama behind Binky D Diapers has a 9 year old little girl as well as a darling little boy that’s about a year and a half.
“I always been crafty and dabbled here and there but never found anything I was passionate about. When my son was about 7 months old a friend introduced me to cloth diapering. I instantly fell in love. If I had known about the benefits of cloth diapering sooner I would have done it from day one. After purchasing many diapers, it came to me that I can make these. After much practice, and lots of ugly diapers I created my current product. I love making diapers and seeing what new crazy creations I can make.”
At Binky D Diapers you can chose between a hybrid fitted or an AI2 style diaper.
Hybrid Fitted diapers are constructed with a hidden layer of poly fleece to make the diaper leak resistant. The inner layer is made of cotton velour for softness against baby’s skin. The outer layer is made of either knit or woven cotton in fun and colorful prints. Each hybrid fitted comes with two snap in soakers constructed with layers of bamboo fleece for absorbancy and cotton velour for softness.
AI2 diapers are constructed with a hidden layer of PUL and an inner layer of minky or micro fleece. The outside of the diaper is constructed with woven or knit cotton material. AI2 diapers come with two snap in soakers constructed with layers of bamboo fleece and topped with minky or micro fleece.
As I mentioned above, all Binky D Diapers come with two snap in soakers. The bottom one is shorter and acts as a doubler with a single snap to keep it in place. The top soaker is longer and snaps in with double snaps. It’s long enough that you fold it over the doubler and it increases the absorbency in the wet zone. Huge plus for my active tummy sleeping toddler. You can also see those crossover snaps in this photo. =)
