For Your Bug-A-Boo Review and Giveaway Ends 8/31!--EXTENDED to Sept 4th! ~CLOSED~

Congrats to Erica Houston for winning the ImseVimse Cloth Diaper!


I recently ran across a really great store that is close to my home.  I had frequented the site many many months ago and had considered ordering some diapers but we used mainly BumGenius at the time and always found it was cheaper to buy them used.  Recently my daughter became super sensitive to suede cloth so we were on a hunt for a new diaper.  So I started looking some more at this site.  They had some natural fiber diapers but I had never used any of these kind before and was a little hesitant.


I was happy when I found out that For Your Bug-a-Boo wanted to send me a diaper to review.  Guess which one?? One of the ones I wanted to try but did not know if it was worth the cost.  Cheri ( a very wonderful person) sent me an Imse Vimse to review.  These are not your more popular diapers.  I had only seen these diapers on a few site and they never really caught my eye.  They run typically at around $23.50 a diaper and are sized.  Realistically for my family sized diapers are not what we look for.  We tend to look for one sized diapers.  However due to my current situation this was a perfect change to see about sized diapers.

When I got the diaper in I was a little worried it wouldn't fit.  I am so use to one size diapers that this diaper looked very large to me.  My daughter is only 24 pounds at 20 months and Larges usually are really big on her. But the fit was amazing!  And it is not on it's smallest setting either.

The diaper is an All-in-One but designed differently then most AIO I have seen.  There is the outer portion of and on the inside it is made of little flap like inserts that are only top sewed into it.  One problem I have found with AIOs is that they are all sewn together and drying time for them is horrible.  However, the drying time with these are just the same as most of my other diapers.


One great benefit that I can see first off is that you can set the diaper up for a boy or girl.  Since you need to absorb more in different locations you can place the diaper how you need to based on more absorbancy in the front or back.  The diaper also has outer and inner gussets.  This keeps from having any leaks and I have only found a couple other diapers like this.

The diaper is truly amazing. Not only because of the design of the diaper but because of the way the diaper fits.  It is not bulky or thick but does give the absorbancy needed.  We have found this diaper to be a great nighttime diaper.  It lasts well through the night for us.


Now to the only downfall I have.  This is a personal preference downfall, the diaper is aplix (velcro).  I personally prefer snaps to aplix.  However, the aplix on this diaper is pretty sturdy and pretty durable.  My biggest problems with aplix is that my 20 month old child can remove it.  However we have had no issues with her removing the diaper.
Again the fit is very good and not bulky.  Even under her clothes it is less noticeable than many other diapers I have.  I think that I would without a doubt by more of these diapers in the future.  Even though they are run about $23.50 they are great and definitely worth it.

Now Cheri, the lady who runs For Your Bug-a-Boo is absolutely amazing and wonderful. She is definitely one of those store owners I would make sure to by my products from even if her prices were not the lowest I found.  There are times when you prefer to go with what you know and trust then the lowest price you found.
