tots bots & honey chunks giveaway from happy baby company

let me introduce you to one of my favorite cloth diaper resources: happy baby company! many, many moons ago (back in january) i carefully prepared and packed all our diapers to fly with us on a trip to pennsylvania (they got their own suitcase), determined to only use cloth on the two-week long trip to my parents' house. all was well until it was time to do the first load of dirty diapers, when i realized i did not pack our trusty rockin' green! so i turned to trusty google and looked up "cloth diaper store" in the area, and was lucky to find one of the only stores within a three-state radius, right there in pittsburgh: happy baby company. what luck! we called to see if they had any rockin' green in stock (they did) and they told us they could have it shipped to the house that afternoon and there by tomorrow. i decided it would be much more fun to take a trip to the actual store and see all the cute fluff up close and personal.



immediately when we walked in, we were greeted by the cuteness of the place. hello, festive diaper garland hanging in the window, brights shelves full of dozens of brands of diapers, and a cute tot pushing her mini shopping cart around the store. i was very impressed by the selection of natural parenting products the store had in stock -- everything from cloth diapers, diaper-friendly detergent, baby care products like amber jewelry and diaper rash cream, baby wraps and carriers, natural and organic toys, and many locally hand-made items as well.






lilly and adam were so helpful and personable! they were great about letting us take our time; we walked around for probably 45 minutes, and they answered any questions we had about their products. river played with the toys in a little play room they had in the back, and they gave us mugs of coffee to warm us up (it was freezing outside).

i am super excited about this giveaway, because the diaper they gave me to review has become one of my favorites! i love tots bots easy fit and have since purchased two more to add to our stash. i would buy one in every color and print if i could afford it. this diaper is great for so many reasons. first of all, it's sort of a cross between a pocket and an all-in-one. the insert is attached to the diaper and stuffs into a pocket. which means you don't have to remove the insert before putting it in the wash! that is the one downside to pocket diapers, having to fish the stinky insert out of the shell with two fingers, trying not to touch too much of the messy diaper in the process -- blech. the easy fit diaper can just be thrown into the wash as is, and the insert shakes out on its own during the agitation of the wash. it also makes adding absorbency a breeze, unlike with most all-in-one diapers. if you need another layer for overnight or a long car ride, you just stuff another insert into the pocket opening. and because the absorbent part isn't sewn into the diaper, like your average AIO, the diaper dries faster. this is great for us, because we line-dry all our diapers. besides being practical and super easy to use, this diaper is just adorable. check it:


originally i bought both of these with austen in mind when i was pregnant, but the tutti frutti print has become river's favorite to wear. he will run to get his "apple diapuh" whenever it's clean. and the flower power print is my favorite print in our stash. it's so bright and cheery! of course, a great thing about this diaper is that it's a one-size, which generally means fitting 8 to 35 pounds. here is the diaper on my 8-pound ten day old, and on my 29-pound two year old. it seems pretty big on austen, especially compared to disposables, but it fits well and is snug enough that i know leaky breastmilk poo isn't going to sneak out.



happy baby company also gave me honey chunks foaming wipe solution to try out. this stuff smells so delicious and i found that i liked using it a lot better than a spray solution. the foam comes out nice and thick and it only takes a pump or two to wet a cloth wipe. it makes wiping up a poopy butt a breeze!

i wish their storefront was located in my city and not miles away in pittsburgh. but for those of us who can't visit to look at all the cute diapers (i would probably be there every week), their website is cute and easy to navigate, and they have free shipping on orders over $35. so, the fun part: happy baby company is offering a tots bots easy fit all-in-one diaper and a bag of honey chunks foaming wipe solution to one lucky winner! check out this new, super easy way to enter the giveaway... saves so much time, i love it!
