Gearing Up For Baby Sponsor Spotlight- Urban Bums

This review has been a long time coming, which in a way is good because I've had a chance to try out the items for a long time now. 

Urban Bums Boutique is a lovely shop that specializes in cloth diapers. She makes Hybrid Fitted diapers which are so amazing. 
Let me show you
She sent me 2 diapers. One of which is a 'second', but really it's just as great as the 'first'
This is the first diaper. A lovely ice giraffes on cotton velour

 It has the fold over rise for adjusting the size you need. I like this option a lot on diapers.

 So you fold it over
 Largest is dully open and then just snapped
 Inside is a soft white velour
 Snap in insert that is double layered with organic bamboo as the absorbency
The 'second' an Ooga Cotton print
Her stitching is VERY slightly off and her snaps are close to the edge on the wings, that's the only thing I've noticed to make this a second.

The Giraffe on Emerson

Under a Flip cover

Now a hybrid fitted doesn't really need to go under a cover. They are meant to be able to be worn without one and still have the breathability of a fitted diaper, but be able to go hours without the outside even feeling damp. 
Emerson does use these diapers that way and they take 3-4 hours before they start to feel damp, but sometimes I just put them under a cover just in case. Especially since he's so mobile and if he sits down he might get the floor wet. But for the most part they are breathable and barely get wet.

The giraffe diaper dries fast too, about the same time as my other diapers. The ooga print does take a bit longer to dry, which is strange since it's cotton, but it's not a huge amount of time and doesn't bother me really at all. I just dry it with the next batch of whatever is going in the dryer. Soon though I'll line dry outside again and then I won't have to worry about it, I'm sure. 

Her diapers are absorbent and are SUPER cute. She has so many fabrics to choose from and so many adorable diapers. 
She also makes these in a Newborn Hybrid Fitted which are totally adorable as well.

I love this diaper

Price: $25 CAD which I think is awesome because these diapers are amazing.

Overall: ***** Love them!!
