Cloth Diapers Reviews
I still don’t understand why parents seem to praise this combination like a star. The cover is of average quality and the inserts, oh, don’t let me start talking about it again, LOL. I just hated it so much I returned it to Amazon. Here’s my take on the Thirsties Duo diaper covers and inserts.
The saying “first impressions last” is not applicable for this particular diaper we own. Read more to learn what I love and hate (mostly hate, LOL) about the Grovia cloth diaper.
Not bulky, lightweight, easier to dry because the inserts are not fully sewn into the cover and nice feel of soft materials used. It this the answer to what is the best all in one cloth diaper?
If I am given the chance to be a mother again, I would definitely go for this All-In-Two system. I can reuse the cover for 2 days and they dry so fast even when hand-washed. But I will definitely get the same charcoal bamboo insert to answer the absorbency needs I want without getting too bulky.
If you are after the best one size cloth diapers for newborns, go with Rumparooz One Size Cloth Diaper Snap and Soakers. Who knows your child will not turn out as big as my toddler when they turn 26 months (31 pounds), you might just be able to still use the covers until you have a potty-trained toddler.
This Charlie Banana cloth diaper review is based on my daughter’s everyday daytime usage for the past 24 months. It has so far helped us save around $2,000 for diapering needs alone. Read what I love and hate about this cloth diaper.
Diaper Bags Reviews
If you are looking for a diaper bag on a budget that can accommodate the function you need, I have narrowed down the good, the better and the best diaper bags under $50. I had searched around before I decided to purchase them because I am a first-time parent as well. I love to do research of products that I need before I buy and use them.
Let me start by saying I have low expectations of the Skip Hop French Stripe diaper bag. That is because I got this as second hand and another mom has used this for almost a year. Used diaper bags tends to lose quality over time. She also even gave me a huge discount which made me lower my expectations even more. So imagine my surprise when I finally got this one-year used diaper bag. Curious how you can pack cloth diapers if you are going out for 12 hours? Read more.
On my search for the best diaper bag backpack, I had two options – the Jeep Perfect Pockets and Graco Gotham backpack. Read more why I chose Graco.
This is one of the affordable diaper backpacks that I have. I love bags in general. And I feel that you should use a bag depending on what you need to carry. Sometimes I would use a bigger one. Sometimes a smaller one if I will just be out for 2 to 3 hours. After using this bag for 5 months, I have decided to make this my babysitter’s official bag, LOL. She mostly use it now.
The Skip Hop Forma Backpack is one of the diaper bags I have been eyeing to buy. I am just waiting for a 30 to 40 percent off period and I am so getting this. Getting this now would be too impractical since I have so many diaper bags now, and my husband would probably scold me for over shopping, lol. Learn what I have found out about this bag and why it made my wish list. 🙂
The Diaper Bag By Hip Cub is a mid-priced bag backed up with a 100% lifetime satisfaction guarantee. This is a hard to pass deal. But why did I not end up buying this bag? Read more.
Infant Car Seats Reviews
While it is lightweight and has a decent canopy coverage, the canopy’s hard to move up or down. Is The Graco Snugride Click Connect 30 LX Worth It?
For a parent who doesn’t plan to travel often but still want the best car seat for baby, this is probably the most affordable and practical temporary car seat there is.
For all the budget-minded parents, there is always a product that can deliver its purpose without burning holes in their pockets.

The 2015 Uppa Baby Mesa Infant Car Seat can be one of the best choices for parents who often commute, as its install system is one of the easiest to deal with.
