Chubby Elephant Diapers Review & Giveaway!

Disclosure: I was sent this diaper for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. 
If you follow my blog regularly you'll know I love cloth diapers and I prefer pocket diapers over all the rest! But I am always up for trying new kinds of diapers so I was really excited to try this gorgeous handmade one-size AI2 cloth diaper from Chubby Elephant Diapers

Laura is the creator and owner of Chubby Elephant Diapers! Here is a bit about her and about Chubby Elephant Diapers in her own words:


I'm Laura, owner and creator of Chubby Elephant Diapers. I have been cloth diapering my son since he was born in October 2010. I developed my cloth diaper pattern in February 2012 and started sewing diapers for my son. I opened up a shop on facebook selling double sided cotton velour cloth wipes and decided to put my diapers through testing. I found out I was pregnant last June so I took a break from sewing. In November, I wanted to get back into making diapers so I started working on setting up my shop on Hyena Cart. My little girl was born at home in February and we moved into a new house in April so I recently started to pick things up again with sewing diapers. It's a fun hobby; I love being able to cut up pieces of fabric and sew them into something functional for my kids! Plus they're cute! I love fabric shopping! There are so many amazing prints out there and I love putting them on babies' bottoms! My goal is to provide adorable/fun prints and a fit people will love along with excellent customer service! Thanks for taking the time to look through my shop! 

Laura creates adorable hybrid fitted and AI2 diapers in so many cute prints! I was given the opportunity to review the adorable whale print AI2 pictured above! The diaper is an AI2, made with a hidden layer of PUL, so it is waterproof and doesn't need a cover. I love to let Isaac wear this diaper with no pants or shorts on so he can show off his cute fluffy bum! It is also Isaac's current favorite diaper because of the "fishy" on it! He always runs to get it when it's time for a diaper change if it's clean!

Besides how cute it is, I'm sure you are wondering if it works well. Since it's an AI2 and made with waterproof materials it shouldn't leak at all,right?! Well, for us it hasn't! I've tried this diaper on Isaac for a few hours at a time and we have had no leaks at all! He even took a three hour nap in this diaper and woke up with a dry bed and dry clothes! I was very impressed! The soaker is made of bamboo fleece and cotton velour and is super soft and absorbent and even comes with an extra snap-in liner to add absorbency if needed.   We also get a great fit and Isaac is 20 months old and almost 24 pounds. Chubby Elephant Diapers come in a size small and large. Large is typically stocked and fits 17-35 pounds. Small can be made as a custom diaper upon request. For Isaac the diaper has a snug fit around the waist and legs without being too tight. I can still overlap the wings on the waist on Isaac so I know he'll be able to wear it for quite a while! 


Overall, I am really enjoying the Chubby Elephants AI2 cloth diaper! It is well made and I love supporting a fellow work-at-home mom!  It is super cute, absorbent, and fits great! Even Isaac likes it!
