Little Bear Bums Diaper Review & Giveaway



Just before Lion Cub was born I was sent a fun little package in the mail for review from Little Bear Bums (you may remember their mama cloth I featured last month). Inside were three prefitteds to try out on my little man! In addition, since Little Bear Bums does not make their own covers, they have collaborated with Loveybums to recommend their wool covers for their dipes, so I got to try out a Loveybums wool crepe cover as well! Woohoo!!


As you can imagine, I was thrilled, and it only got better once Lion Cub was big enough to actually try out the dipes! For those of you who aren't familiar, a prefitted is simply a prefold that has been sewn into the shape of a fitted diaper, but generally still requires a Snappi to close. Little Bear Bums prefitteds are expertly sewn and very durable.

As with any prefold-style diaper (in my opinion, anyway) there was a bit of a learning curve to discover the perfect way to secure the diaper so that I would not have a leak, but past that point we have been using these prefitteds with great success. The way the extra fabric is sewn to the center gives a breathable open loop which speeds drying time considerably and the elastic in the leg casings insures a snug fit. The prefitteds are also incredibly trim and fit easily into nearly any cover.


The Loveybums cover is also beautifully made and packaged. I received a size small wool crepe cover that snaps in the front and we really like it. We are still waiting for it to fit snugly around the legs, but even still, it works pretty well most of time. I know that once Lion Cub fits into it completely it will work like a charm (I used one of their wool jersey covers on R-Man and it worked beautifully and fit very trim)! The wool crepe is very soft and makes for a nice trim fit under clothes, and of course you just can't beat wool for breathability in a cover! As soon as we can afford it I would love to be able to purchase anther one or two of the Loveybums covers.

I like the hand dyed little bear bums, since I have been using prefolds, I am getting tired of looking at plain white/ off white. I could use some color inspiration right about now. I would be interested to see their tye dye version!
