Cow Patties–Review and Preview!


So, as I have mentioned, I have an awesome giveaway coming up called: Made With Love. It is part of a HUGE event where everything in the giveaway packages are handmade by someone. When I was trying to decide what I wanted for my package, I had a brilliant thought. Have two packages! One of my amazing packages is for all of you crunchy, kinda crunchy, and wanna-be crunchy mom’s out there. A cloth diaper package. But first my review.


I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate to Cow Patties Cloth Diapers through Facebook. I fell in love with the name first, growing up “down South” and now being in Wisconsin, it just seemed like a very fitting name to me. When I went to select what diaper I wanted, they all looked amazing and I decided that I needed two. First up was a Marvel Hero’s diaper (which I let Daddy pick),


and the second was an argyle print (Joint decision between me and his Nonna). The great thing was Cow Patties offers a $3 discount if you supply your own fabric! I supplied this awesome argyle:


These diapers are awesome! I purchased the two all in two diapers with two additional inserts. They are super absorbent after being “treated” (read washed a few times) and they have a very nice, trim fit, even though the insert is nice and big! When they are folded you can get 8 layers of absorbency!

My little monster seems to like to wear them, I love the snaps, as I am too lazy to use velcro and never remember to fold down the laundry tabs. Then they get gross and hard to close.The other thing that I really like about these is the fact that they are my first non-pocket diaper, I can unsnap the insert and just reuse the cover! It’s awesome! These diapers are also really well made, when they arrived the package was in good condition, and the diapers and inserts were without any dangling threads or strange fuzzies. Always a plus. The customer service that you get from Megs really rocks, she put up with my crazy schedule and was really patient with me when I forgot to mail in my fabric. (oops) You do have to pay in advance before your custom orders will be made, but the turn around time if very quick, and she does her best to keep you posted on how it’s going, plus you get to see a picture of your diaper before it ships out to you! The only thing that I would like better is if plain colors were available for the insides of the diapers instead of prints, but I heard that was coming soon, so I really don’t have anything to complain about! Overall I give these awesome WAHM diapers a 10 out of 10! So go now and order some!  The one size AI2 is a very reasonably prices $14, and extra inserts are only $2 each!
