Healthy, Natural, Green week DAPA DIAPERS *CLOSED*



*Somebody sent me a message this morning wondering how I adequately review diapers if Avery is out of them. To clarify, we ONLY use diapers at Nap and Bed. Most sponsors of cloth diapers know this ahead of time. If you as a reader think that it isn't an adequate review, PLEASE let me know and I will no longer review cloth.*

We received a lovely diaper and inserts from Dapa Diapers. We received the Sweet Pea Diaper and 2 of the Hemp Inserts. Hemp is the most absorbent (I think) material for inside cloth diapers. I have found it to work the best. It doesn't stink after a lot of uses like Microfiber does, it is more absorbent than flannel or bamboo. I like it best.
I love the green color they sent, very gender neutral. I love the inserts. They are a little shorter than I like, but they help accommodate for the smaller setting without being too bulky. For nap I use one insert and for bedtime I use 2 inserts. So far they have held up quite well. They absorb nicely. No leaks. The only thing Is I have to put a fleece cover on top that I made so that it pins closed. She can get velcro and snaps off, so if I pin a cover on top she can't get the diaper off. It has saved up a lot of cleanup in the morning.

I washed the diaper and inserts 3 times in hot water and dried 3 times on hot before putting the diaper on her, This gets all the manufacturer oils out of the diaper and makes it more absorbent. I have noticed that with every wash so far the inserts get more absorbent. Usually about 10 washes is the max for that. They are at a steady absorbency pace right now. 

I liked the way the diaper fit. It has a lot of sizing options between the rise and the waist adjusters this diaper will fit a wide range of babies and toddlers.

Dapa diapers sells a bunch of seconds diapers at a discounted price. They also sell a lot of name brands like Fuzzibunz, and Monkey Doodlez. You can also search by category like one size diapers and fitteds etc. So there are a lot of search options as well.

Price: Because it is discontinued that means the diaper is a SUPER cheap $10.95. That's almost unheard of for a one size diaper. The inserts are $4.49. Which is reasonable for a hemp or bamboo insert.

Overall:***** very happy!
