WAHM Review (+Giveaway): Pink Pixie Diapers *CLOSED*


I am beyond excited to introduce you all to Tara from Pink Pixie Diapers and Savannah's Inspiration!  Working with her has been an immeasurably pleasant experience and I highly recommend her product.  But we'll get to that later.  Let's get to know her a little more:

Tara is a momma to four kiddos!  Her oldest is a girl, at 14.  Then two boys at 9 and 5.  And her youngest is also a girl - she just celebrated her 3rd birthday!

It seems that her youngest little one inspired Tara quite a bit.  After seeing quite a few adorable things, Tara put her crafty side to work and started making her own accessories! So many people loved them and wanted their own that her store, Savannah's Inspiration, was born.  And I love what she had to say about this business: "I have always tried to keep my costs down because being a mom of 4 I know that I don't have 20 bucks to spend on a headband."

The small clip is only $1.50 and the large is just $3.50.  And they are SO adorable!


This is one of my favorite items from her shop!  Definitely on my list of things to get for Baby Girl!  ;)  And at only $4, you just can't beat the adorable factor!

Again, after her youngest, Tara tried her hand at making cloth diapers.  Mostly, as she puts it, "to feed her addiction."  After some trial and error, her cloth diaper brand, Pink Pixie, was ready to launch!  The awesome part?  She really tries to keep her diapers as modestly priced as she can as well!  She focuses on AI2's (all in twos) because she believes they are the easiest option - no need for a cover and no pockets to stuff!  

Here are some of my favorite diapers from her shop:

Because who doesn't love the Avengers??


Or furry little woodland creatures!?  ;)

For my review, I simply told her what size I preferred and if I wanted boy, girl, or gender neutral.  As you all know, I am having a girl.  But in order to prepare for our hypothetical next child, I've been trying to play it safe and get gender neutral diapers.  So that's what I told her.  :)

And this is what she sent:


I was ecstatic! I always say I was meant to be a 50's girl - poodle skirts, diners, etc.  Love it all!  So this was right up my alley.  I absolutely love it!

5 Stars

Now if you will notice, the front and back seem to be opposite.  At least, that's what I thought at first.  Tara makes side-snapping diapers.  And this is the first one I've ever seen in person.  Apparently, the fit is supposed to be a bit better.  AND, as your kiddos get bigger it is supposedly more difficult for them to remove than front-snapping.  The two snaps you see on the back are actually for the insert!  That way it stays in place.  LOVE that feature!

See what I mean?

LOOOOOVE this feature!

This is extremely Daddy and Grandma friendly.  If Baby Girl is wet, you just get a new insert.  No folding or stuffing, just snapping (which almost guarantees proper placement).  If the rest of the diaper gets wet or soiled, you just change the diaper.  Really wishing my entire stash was this way!  :)

5 Stars

I also love the fleece on the inside.  It is super soft and I know it will wick away wetness from Sprout's skin.

5 Stars

The quality of this diaper is phenomenal.  In fact, I might rate it the best of my stash.  It feels like a better diaper!  With a lot of my other diapers (most name brand) I feel like I'm going to rip them when I snap and unsnap.  This diaper is solid and I'm not afraid to unsnap it.  I really think it will last a very long time!  To see a little bit of the quality, I demonstrated sizing in the photos below.  The diaper stood on its own!  Pretty awesome!  She sent me a Medium, which should fit from 12 lbs to about 22 lbs.

Smallest
5 Stars

To test absorbency, I added water a tablespoon at a time (starting with 3).  I understand that water isn't urine and that urine can behave differently.  But this should still give you a pretty good idea of how absorbent a diaper has the potential of being.  Compared to the other brands that I tested (Applecheeks, Nicki's Diapers, Glow Bug, Blueberry, and WAHM brand), my Pink Pixie diaper did splendidly!  It wasn't the best, coming in at 8 tablespoons, but only 2 diapers beat it - Glow Bug and Blueberry (both tying at first place with 10 tablespoons).  I was pretty pleased with this.  I do plan to retest this particular area once Baby Girl arrives.  I will include those results in my update series!  :)

4 Stars - only because she wasn't #1

Her price point, for mediums and up, I think, is pretty good.  Every other major brand that sells a similar diaper (AI2's with snap-in inserts) sells just the diaper, no insert, for a few dollars cheaper.  The inserts run anywhere from $4 to $18 - making every one of those brands more expensive than Tara's!  And her quality is just as good, if not better than those comparable diapers!  The really neat part, her price point for newborn diapers, especially at this quality, cannot be beat!  Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing you are buying a product that is not only Made in the USA, but it also going to support a hard-working mama!

5 Stars

My favorite thing about working with Tara?  Her customer service was phenomenal!  She was tremendously easy to work with and went above and beyond!  She handled everything quickly and efficiently, answered all of my questions, was super encouraging, and shipping was tremendously quick (none of this 7-14 days stuff).  I also love that she includes washing instructions and details about how the side-snapping process works.

5 Stars.  Can I give more than 5??  Like 10??  Seriously.  She was wonderful to work with!

Overall I give this diaper 5 Stars!  Between ease of use, quality, the price, and Tara's customer service this is a great diaper to have in your stash.

5 Stars - Easy!

  9. Since I don't know baby's gender, I would have to go gender neutral, and the 5 pack is a great deal! But I have to admit those girl prints are adorable, especially the green tinkerbell.
