Comfy Rumps Pocket Cloth Diaper Review (& Giveaway)


Today's review is for the Comfy Rumps original pocket cloth diaper that is being given away in this post, so be sure to head over there once you've read my review.  :-)

I was sent the Comfy Rumps Original Pocket Diaper in black to review.  This is a one-size cloth diaper, meaning that it is meant to fit your baby from birth to potty training.  This diaper will be bulky on a newborn and continue to fit less bulky as your baby grows.  I find one-size diapers too bulky for my newborns so I don't normally use them until my babies are a few months old.

The Comfy Rumps diaper only comes with 1 soaker so I would recommend buying second soakers if you are planning on using it overnight or have a heavy wetter.  I tried this diaper with both 1 soaker and 2 soakers (taking one from my own stash).  We didn't experience any leaks with just 1 soaker but the diaper was very full and if allowed to stay on too long would have definitely leaked.  2 soakers seemed to be better for my boys as I didn't have to worry about the diaper leaking or wicking out at all.

 The Comfy Rumps one-size pocket diaper has lots of snaps across the top to help get the perfect fit for your little one as well as 2 sets of riser snaps for younger/smaller babies.

This diaper is priced quite low for a one-size pocket diaper ranging from $6.25 - $7.75.  If you are looking for a one-size cloth diaper to fit your baby from birth to potty training then you might want to consider a Comfy Rumps diaper.  I have a 2 year old and a 11 month old and the diaper fits both of them nicely. Comfy Rumps sells other diapers as well as the original pocket one.

 These diapers are not made in the US (made in China) with the following fabrics:

Outer Material: A stretchy Polyester material with a PUL coating, (polyurethane laminate,) makes the outer layer completely waterproof. 
Inner Material: A light and soft microfleece material effectively wicks away moisture and will remain soft wash after wash.
Snap Pattern: 2 rows of snaps along the front allows the waist and hip to be securely fastened.  Each diaper also has rise adjustment snaps along the front, to shorten the diaper for smaller sizing.  
Soakers: Each diaper comes with one 3 piece microfiber terry insert which absorbs up to 250 ml of liquid! 

If you are interested in trying this Comfy Rumps diaper be sure to head over here and enter the giveaway!

6 Woolzies Dryer Ball Review & Giveaway

As you know I've used wool dryer balls before (and still do!)  The chemicals in the commercial fabric softener sheets are so bad, I won't go into detail here this time but I'd encourage you to research it. They are filled with many toxic chemicals for your body. Yuck!

Anyway, these new dryer balls - Woolzies, that I'm talking about today are great!  They are 100% natural and have no dyes or fragrances.  My family has sensitivities to chemicals and fragrances so this is always a big plus.  These balls are about the size of your palm, though because they are hand made each ball differs just slightly from the other.

I already had 4 dryer balls in my dryer before adding the 6 woolzies I got.  Adding 6 more to my dryer has made a rather big difference in both the drying time and the amount of static in the dried clothes. :)  I haven't noticed a huge difference in the time but I know that these dryer balls will make a huge difference in the amount of time is takes to dry clothes. It's just that my dryer doesn't work well and I need to replace it sometime.  It roughly would take 110 minutes to dry 1 regular sized load with just my 4 dryer balls but now with the additional 6 it's only taking about 80 minutes to dry a load.  This is great because to get 110 minutes on my dryer I would have to reset the dryer, and if you are a mom you know how much a pain that can be as you just forget about it too easily! :)

Dryer balls are great with cloth diapers (if you dry them in the dryer).  The best part about dryer balls with cloth diapers is the fact that the drying time is cut back so much helping keep the wear and tear of the dryer down on your diapers. : )  You can read about the way I wash my diapers here.

These balls are made very well and will last a very long time with regular use.  They are guaranteed to last 1,000 loads or your money back!  They are firm yet soft and are not loud in the dryer at all as it spins around and around.  My boys love when I do the laundry and to find all the balls and then through them back into the dryer.  Sometimes they try to take them away and play with them but they are starting to understand that these are mommies balls and aren't play balls. : )

WOOLZIES®, The All Natural Dryer Ball Set. This set of six handmade pure wool dryer balls are special in several ways. They deliver the same benefits for laundry as conventional fabric softeners WITHOUT all the nasty chemicals. They save everyone a lot of money by eliminating the need to continuously spend on fabric softener liquid and sheets. They cut down on the time it takes to dry a typical load by at least 25% thereby saving everyone even more money and cutting down on fossil fuel usage. Finally, being as that they are handmade in the democratic republic of Nepal, they provide a steady source of income to the desperately needy women of that developing nation.

Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. 

If you have more questions about the use of dryer balls and about Woolzies they are a very good FAQ page here.

Woolzies can also be purchased here on Amazon.

Would you like a chance to win your own set of 6 Woolzies dryer balls?  Woolzies has offered to give one (1) reader here a set of dryer balls!  Enter below in the Rafflecopter form!

February Reads

This month I didn't get quite as much reading done.  I did more audio as I was a bit busier and the books I was reading were much longer than many of the ones I read in January.

Redeeming Childbirth
This book is a must for any woman weather she is pregnant or around pregnant women, it's an amazing book!  So enjoyed it!

Sir Knight - Lamplighter
I've been really loving the Audio Dramas from Lamplighter lately.  My boys love to listen to them too!

Teddy's Button - Lamplighter

The Basket of Flowers - Lamplighter

The Captive - Lamplighter

Naturally Knocked Up
This book is so good!  I have the eBook of it and I have added the hard copy to my "wish list" as I'd love to have it in paper too.  The book is written to those trying to improve their health to increase chances of conception but I think it's a great book for everyone.  The ideas in this book go perfectly with the way I think and believe we should eat/become healthy. :)

Also, if you are interested in the Lamplighter Audio books, they are on sale right now for 7 for $7.00 which is an AMAZING deal on them.  The 2 sets are normally $180.00 & $195.00 each but until March 4th you can get both sets for just $14.00!!!  This also goes for the eBook sets too!

What have you been reading?  Have you read (or listened) to any of the above books?
