Buttons Cloth Diapers Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Disclosure: I received the product below to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I was not compensated in any other way.

Buttons cloth diapers are an all-in-two diaper system, meaning that there are two parts, the diaper cover (waterproof) and the insert. I happen to really like all-in-twos. One reason being that you can re-use the shell and just replace the insert during diaper changes. Less cost up front because you don't need as many covers.

Buttons diapers is a family business created by a husband and wife team trying to make an easy to use and affordable diapering system.

Buttons diapers covers are one size. By adjusting the rise and waist snaps you can use this diaper shell on a baby ranging from  9-35 lbs. 

The diaper shell is made from two layers of PUL (the waterproof material). They have one row of waist snaps with elastic in the front and back of the diaper. There are two snaps inside the cover which are used to snap the insert into the shell (two photos below #3). This diaper also has two leg gussets to help keep messes inside!

The insert are contoured (hourglass shape) allowing to absorb more in front or back but remain trim between the legs. The daytime insert consists of four layers of microfiber with a layer of fleece on top (#1 and #4 in photo below). The nighttime doubler adds an additional 6 layers of microfiber (only to be used under daytime insert, #5 below). The nighttime doubler snaps into the diaper and the daytime insert snaps on top of the doubler (#2 in photo below). Each style of insert comes in two sizes; small (9-20lbs) and large (20-35lbs). Having two sizes of inserts gives a more trim fit for those younger babies.

Bug is around 24/25 lbs. He is on the largest rise setting of this diaper, but I still feel he has plenty of room to grow. Because of the elastic in the front, the top of the diaper seems to fold over the insert a little bit (see top right photo below). This is especially good for us because diapers that don't have a tummy panel tend to leak with him. But the elastic in front gives him more protection from leaks, which we have not had with this diaper. 

I think this is a great option for someone looking for an all-in-two diaper who wants to stretch their money. For each shell I'd recommend 3 inserts. If the diaper shell isn't soiled when you change your baby's diaper, you can wipe it out with a baby wipe and only replace the insert. So you could get by with 3-4 diaper shells and 9-12 inserts for a full days worth of diapering.

Buy It: The diaper shells come in nine different solid colors. They can be purchased for $11.00 each. The daytime inserts are $3.50 and the nighttime doublers are $5.00. Purchases can be made directly from their website
