Mother-ease Review and Giveaway!



I got the chance a few weeks ago to do a review for Mother-ease, and I was really excited!

About Mother-ease
"Our eldest son, Aaron, was born in 1981. At that time, I used traditional flat, rectangular cloth diapers, which need to be folded and pinned, along with the plastic pant which went over top to keep his clothes dry. My next two children were cloth diapered this same way, but by the time our fourth child arrived, I had concluded that there MUST be a better way of cloth diapering. In deference to the environment and to minimize cost, I was determined not to use disposable diapers.

Shortly after Sandy was born, I set to work to design a diaper that would make my life easier and Sandy’s more comfortable. The result was our breathable All In One cloth diaper. With an exclusive side ventilation system, it combines an outer waterproof cover with an inner absorbent cotton material. Plastic snaps make cloth diapering easy and it fits a baby’s bottom snugly."


I was sent the All-in-one diaper to review! The all-in-one diaper is highly breatheable with side venting and adjustable snap closures. Elastic all around gives the baby a comfortable, "no restriction" stretchy fit. The inner fabric is made of our knit cotton terry. The outer waterproof fabric is PUL.

This diaper fit Jack very well. My first impression was that this diaper might not hold much, because it didn't seem there were many absorbent layers in the diaper. But I was wrong! He has worn this several times, for several hours at a time, and when I take it off, it hardly even feels wet! This is a great absorbent diaper! It is a bit "fluffy" but it isn't stuffed full, so it still works well with different clothes, and I didn't have a problem with his pants fitting. =)

After visiting Mother-Ease's website, I learned there are some significant health benefits. Mother Ease controls the entire production process from purchasing cotton yarns and having them knit and finished to making cloth diapers and they are 100% green.
