Hey all!! I may be more excited about this WAHM review than any before. Why? Because Christina and I share the same faith. We are sisters in Christ and since I first began talking to her last June or July, we had an instant connection because of this. But I’m also excited about this review because I absolutely LOVE this diaper!
|I was given a free diaper in exchange for an open & honest review. No other compensation was exchanged. All opinions are my own.|
Let me give you a brief background of this wonderful small business - like many moms, Christina wasn't happy with the diapers she was using. So she decided to start making her own. Soon, people were asking where she got her diapers and before she knew it, Fruit of the Womb Diapers was born! Her and her hubby have nine kiddos! Nine! I love it!! They also donate a portion of all their proceeds to Bridgehaven Pregnancy Support Center in Cedar Rapids, IA. I really love this because I, myself, have recently taken a job at a pregnancy center. :)
The diapers Christina makes are extremely unique. She came up with the design herself and I have never seen anything like it. As soon as I opened the package, before we even used it, I knew this diaper was going to be one of our new favorites. You could instantly tell that it was made very well and that it was super absorbent. It is, hands down, our new favorite diaper...especially overnight!
|Comes in pretty cute packaging! ;)|
|Adorable little elephants. :D|
|And the bum!|
I know that overnight is a struggle. When people ask me how I like using cloth or how it has gone, I first say how much I absolutely love it but also note that there is a learning curve. At this point, I usually mention that it took us quite a while to find an overnight solution and that we had to deal with leaks. If I had not had the limitless access to cloth diaper blogs and facebook groups, I may have given up. I think the key to overnight is to just keep trying until you find something that works for you.
And I bet that this one will!
This OS (one size) Fruit of the Womb diaper can be used as an AIO (All in One) or an AI2 (All in Two). One insert is sewn in. And a second insert can be snapped in.
|It does take a bit of time to dry....but soooooo worth it!|
With the second insert snapped in, we have never had a leak overnight, not even close. When I say “not even close” I’m sure some moms know what I’m talking about. But let me clarify - there are mornings that Little Miss will wake up without wet sheets or wet PJ’s…but I can tell as I take off her diaper that there is not room for one more drop of pee and that she was headed straight for a leak if I had left her in it any longer. This happens with probably half of my overnight solutions. Which, for me, means that they aren’t the perfect solution. Thankfully, this super cute elephant diaper is a perfect solution.
In fact, I decided to try it last night without the extra insert and it STILL worked wonderfully! This means that I know I have a diaper that will work if she decides to become even more of a heavy wetter! Which is awesome. I know exactly where I will turn to if we start to leak at night again!! Fruit of the Womb.
Another thing I would like to mention is that I am usually pretty leery of hook & loop (Velcro). I had gotten a few diapers at the beginning with hook & loop that I’m positive will not be of use soon. She has already discovered the tabs during changing time and it wouldn’t take much effort to pull them right open because they aren’t very sticky. It is for this reason, I’ve steered clear of hook & loop diapers. Even though they are a bit easier…
Thankfully, the hook & loop that Fruit of the Womb uses is phenomenal! That stuff is like glue! It sticks and means it! This is another reason I fell head over heels for this diaper. It is sooooo easy to use and I don’t have to worry about the tabs coming undone.
I also love the fold down rise. Only a few of my diaper have this function and I’ve never seen one with hook & loop before. I love it! No snaps or hook & loop touching baby’s skin at any point and it makes the “one-size” part of the diaper pretty nice!

But here is my absolute favorite part of this diaper – the tag!
|Cute right?? :D|
When a company is faith-based, I have more confidence in buying the product and working with the people. Fruit of the Womb definitely holds that standard high.
Here's what the diaper looks like on:
|Oh how I love those chunky legs!!|
One thing I do need to mention, the turn around time for Fruit of the Womb dipes is two-three weeks But with nine kids and being a tremendous success at her business, I can completely understand this. I know it is hard for me to get much done during the week and I only have one little lady to contend with. Fun fact – Christina’s youngest is just a month older than our Aelah. We were belly buddies. ;)
