Mother's Day Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop Sponsor Spotlight+Review! {Softbums!}

I'm excited to tell you about another sponsor for the Mother's Day Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop-Softbums! I was also given the opportunity to review their Echo Diaper and I'm going to tell you all about it! 

Softbums was created by husband and wife Sarah and Brian Van Bogart. Sarah has been sewing and designing diapers for over ten years. They've created the true one-size diaper with their Slide2Size system which is adjustable leg elastic so the diaper can fit chunky babies and skinny babies alike! They are committed to helping make cloth diapers work for parents with quality products and quality service! 

I was sent the Softbums Echo System with a Dry Touch Pod to review. This diaper is sort of a one-size AI2 that is made up of a waterproof shell and a detachable pod. Instead of snaps to make the diaper one-size, the Echo shell let's you adjust the leg openings with a drawstring that is hidden perfectly inside the diaper! With this drawstring the leg openings can adjust from 2 inches to 14 inches easily and discreetly, making this truly a one-size diaper! The pods come in three different types- dry touch, super dry touch, and organic bamboo. So you are able to choose what sort of absorbency you want!

I received the Echo Diaper in Nuclear Pumpkin and I love this color! It is such a bright, happy color! It took me a few tries to get the leg openings the right size for Isaac but once I did the fit was perfect! Not too tight, giving him red marks, but not too loose causing leaks either! I really like that the pod attaches to the diaper with a snap so it doesn't slide around while he's wearing it. But it's removable also so it's easy to wash and dry it! The opening to the drawstring confused me a little bit; I thought it was a tear in the stitching! But after looking harder I realized what it was and it's really not a big deal. 
Overall I really like this diaper! I get a great fit around the legs and waist and because of that we have no leaks whatsoever! It's simple to use and does the job! 

Softbums is graciously giving away one Echo Diaper System in winner's choice of color for the Mother's Day Cloth Diapering Giveaway Hop prize package here on The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a Second Time Mom!
