If you have organic preferences, a heavy wetter or if you have just gotten over your intimidation of fitted diapers, Babee Greens are definitely one to consider. I love that their fabrics are made here in the U.S. and they seem to be staying softer than other organic cotton and hemp diapers I own. I was a little intimidated by fitted diapers when I first started cloth diapering, but fell in love with them after I got more confident in cloth diapering and as my heavy wetter seemed to keep wetting more and more!
The Babee Greens Organic Cotton Diaper and Hemp Diaper are soft, absorbent and have a trim fit for a fitted diaper, but can be customized for heavier wetters with their doublers. The main insert snaps in so it can be removed and used as a contour diaper for newborns (has a little curve on one end for the umbilical cord too!), then the fitted diaper without the insert can be used for small infants, and both the components can be used together for older infants and toddlers. The snap-in insert design also allows for reduced drying time and eliminates the need to find the matching insert for the diaper. Heavier wetters, overnight diapering and older toddlers will probably need a doubler or two (available for purchase separately), but you can purchase this at a later time as needed.
I also received a small sample of their Washing Greens detergent and love that it includes some tea tree and lavender essentials oils. Their idea or recommendation to use a scoop of their Washing Greens as a deodorizer at the bottom of your pail is a great time and money saving tip. Then all you need to do is just toss your dirty diapers into the wash on wash day without needing to add more detergent or needing to spend extra money on pail powders.
