I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.
The Little Bee Co. mission:
If you aren’t familiar with the Little Bee Co’s mission, let me tell you a little about it. This wonderful company is committed to making sure that needy babies around the world have diapers to wear. Many children in the third world countries don’t have access to proper diapering. Orphanages are forces to use what they have available which could be rags, torn pieces of clothing, or nothing at all.
The “bee changed and change the world” mission is simple. For every Little Bee Co. diaper you buy, they will donate one to a child in need. Once they have enough diapers to complete a diaper drop, they bring them to an orphanage for children in need. They are currently working with orphanages is Africa, Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras, & Cambodia in organizing future drops. However they are not only donating diapers to children in other countries. One of their diaper drops was to Joplin, MO after a tornado devastated their community.
About the diaper:
Little Bee Co. cloth diapers come in many vibrant colors and several styles. They offer pocket diapers in microsuede, bamboo, and coolplus as well as AIOs and newborn sized diapers.
For my review I chose and was sent the Ultra Cool pocket diaper in Turkish Moon which is a deep, beautiful red. The Little Bee Co. pocket diaper is a one size system with three rise settings and will fit most babies from 8-35 pounds.
First I need to mention the pretty packaging. I love when a package comes nicely wrapped since it gives it a more personal touch.
The Coolplus lining is very soft. It feels very similar to bamboo and just gets softer with each wash. It doesn’t stain like bamboo does or take as long to dry and doesn’t get as rough when air dried. It does take longer to dry than a regular pocket, though.
What is Coolplus?Coolplus is an incrediably “cool” fiber (poly/nylon blend} that provides the ultimate comfort for your baby! With it’s intense wicking properties, quick water diffision rate, speedy drying time and excellent air permeability your babies sweet little cheeks will never want to be wrapped in anything else!Does Coolplus mean your babies bottom will get cool?Not at all! The only thing getting cool here is their style!
We got a nice fit with this diaper though I do wish that the back elastic was a little thicker. It looks like the elastic is cutting in a bit but it isn’t. It never left a red mark and I could run my finger along the inside of the diaper with ease.
You can buy your very own Little Bee Co. diaper for between $15 (Bitty Bee) and $26 (AIO) from their website. Don’t forget that for every diaper you buy a baby in need also gets a diaper.
