Buttons Diapers Cloth Diaper Review

As a cloth diaper addict, I love discovering new to me brands. Recently I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing Buttons Cloth Diapers and of course I said yes! I was sent a complimentary diaper to try in exchange for my review. Buttons Cloth Diapers is also sponsoring one of their diapers in either Strawberry, Snow, or Blueberry for the Red, White, and Blue event.

The owners of Buttons Cloth Diapers are a husband and wife team from Washington who designed their diapers to be easy and affordable for everyone. I am happy to say that they have succeeded in their goal.

Before I get started on this review I need to comment on how cute their packaging is. I love when I get a nicely wrapped package along with a personal note. It gives me warm fuzzies right off the bat.

Buttons Diapers Cloth Diaper Review

Buttons diapers are a one size hybrid diapering system consisting of a cover and a snap-in insert. All you do is snap in a super absorbent insert into the cover and go. Unsnap the soiled insert and wipe out the cover or hang it to dry to reuse for the next diaper change. Simple! I am moving away from pocket diapers in exchange for easy to use AI2s, hybrids and covers so I was very happy with this system. Included in my review package was a cover, a large daytime insert, and a nighttime insert.

The daytime insert is 4 layers of microfiber with a stay-dry top and the nighttime insert is 6 layers of microfiber. The inserts are very fluffy, soft, and absorbent. We didn’t have a single leak with just the daytime insert during our review period when K usually needs at least a doubler and often two inserts with other diapers.

The cover is a soft, semi-stretchy material with two sets of rise snaps that makes getting a good fit easy. There are dual leg gussets and an additional front elastic for containing messes and wetness. In general I prefer diapers with two snaps on the wing because when you only have one snap you get curls in the fabric. This doesn’t affect function at all though and isn’t a deal breaker, I just like the wings to lay flat for aesthetic reasons.

The leg gussets are very nice and snug. K-Dub put this diaper to the test and it held up beautifully. This diaper is very easy to clean poo from. Just take a corner, unsnap it, spray or swish and then you’re done. No unstuffing the pocket of a poopy diaper, which is never fun.

As I mentioned above, we were also given a nighttime insert that snaps on top of the daytime insert for extra absorbency for cloth diapering at night. This combo was very absorbent and lasted all night long (about 12 hours) but was very bulky. For using this at night I think I will personally use one of the inserts and a bamboo insert that I have in my stash for a thinner nighttime solution.

This photo is with both inserts in. As you can see, it is very fluffy

But even with the thickness of the two inserts, the front elastic and gussets are still snug to prevent leaks. It is definitely a doable nighttime solution if you don’t have thinner inserts on hand or if your little one doesn’t mind the fluffiness. K is very mobile and active and the thickness seemed to bother him a bit.

Buttons Diapers Cloth Diaper Review

Overall I really like this diaper. It is very easy to use, super economical, and fits well. I love that it’s easy to clean the messiest of messes from and can be reused throughout the day which makes it even more economical for those on a budget. If you are looking for a nice, economical diaper then I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Buttons cloth diapers.

Buy It

You can buy the Buttons cloth diaper system directly or from some of your favorite retailers like Diaper Junction and Sweetbottoms Baby

They are nicely made. The price isn’t indicative of the quality πŸ™‚

I am interested in hybrid’s also…but like I said on the giveaway…I have issues remember to not just toss the cover in the dirty too…it is def a learning curve…

It took me a long time to not use my AI2 and hybrid diapers for just one change.

I love the fluffy bum!! I’ve never noticed that diapers with just one set of snaps tend to curl at the front – but now I understand that is probably why I tend to prefer diapers with two rows of snaps.

Reply
Regan July 2, 2013 - 2:45 pm

I’ve only used one brand that has just the one snap that didn’t curl. The one snap makes it very easy to put on quickly especially when you have a toddler like mine who fights diaper changes a lot of the time so I guess it’s a trade off.

I love AI2 systems! I thought it was interesting that it had snaps in both the front and the back for the insert. I’ve never tried one like that before.

Reply
Regan July 2, 2013 - 2:37 pm

It’s especially nice if you or your partner is like my husband. He doesn’t like it when diapers have moving parts which is his issue with AI2 diapers which happen to be my favorite these days.

What a great price for this system!! I will definitely be recommending this to friends who want to try CDing without spending an arm and a leg!

Reply
Regan July 2, 2013 - 2:35 pm

They are very affordable but not cheap. If we weren’t so close to starting the potty training process πŸ™ I would definitely buy a few more.

I like that these diapers are affordable and have snap closures.

double gussets are so helpful on an ai2!

Rachel July 3, 2013 - 8:17 am

I like that the insert snaps in but I think I’d want to wear gloves when removing it! Good that it stays in place but bad that it can’t just be dumped in the wetbag!

Reply
Regan July 11, 2013 - 11:23 pm

It’s not so bad if you spray it off then unsnap it from the corner.

I like that the inserts are so absorbent

I love that these diapers have double gussets and I love the AI2 system because you can use the cover in other ways! Lastly, I love the price, very affordable!

I really love how these can expand with size, how cool is that? It really makes the investment of purchasing a reusable diaper much more worthwhile.

I love not needing to unstuff a poopy diaper insert to spray it.

Amen! I am moving further and further away from my pockets because of this.

That’s a surprisingly affordable system! Plus, I’m a fan of those double gussets.

A friend who is about to try cloth told me about Buttons and they look very intriguing. Now that baby girl has finally started solids I’m looking at AI2s. They wouldn’t have worked with her very messy EBF poos. I think I’d much prefer these over pockets.

Reply
Regan July 11, 2013 - 11:32 pm

Pockets are really popular and I loved them at first but now they’re the last in my stash that I reach for. I’ve actually sold a lot of them

Leela July 9, 2013 - 9:31 am

Too bad about the wing curl, that annoys me a bit too, but at least it has gussets and a very absorbent insert. Seems like a solid diaper for the price.

Reply
Regan July 11, 2013 - 11:31 pm

It is the downfall to this diaper but my son has done some nasty things to this diaper and it kept everything in so it’s a trade off that I’m willing to make πŸ™‚

I didn’t cloth diaper with my first. The main reason being that we have to go down 3 flights of stairs and across the yard to do laundry, and then we have to pay 3 dollars per load. I would like to do it with my next litlle one though.

Reply
Regan July 11, 2013 - 11:30 pm

I didn’t CD my first either, but he’s 13 now and modern cloth diapers were just starting then. I had a friend who cloth diapered with prefolds and covers and I thought the covers were really cute but we had to use the laundromat then and it just wasn’t something that I could wrap my head around. Now, I’m a total addict and am dreading potty training

Jamie H July 9, 2013 - 9:56 pm

You can’t beat double gussets! Did he get red marks on the thighs at all? That elastic looks snug, which is good, but we’ve got a little one with really sensitive skin πŸ™‚

Reply
Regan July 9, 2013 - 10:28 pm

He’s in between snap settings so he did get marks the first time when I had it tighter but he hasn’t gotten them when I put it on the looser snap setting.

I seriously love these diapers. I was a little doubtful as AI2’s aren’t my FAVE – but these are really great and even worked overnight for us!

Reply
Regan July 11, 2013 - 11:27 pm

You know how much I love my AI2s these days.

I have one of these and the wing curl is mildly annoying, but everything else is so great that I’d love to win anther!

oh I really like these! My friend, or well..i think she’s my cousin or something is starting to cloth diaper and wanted ideas on good brands. I’ve been cloth diapering my son since he was 5 months, he now just turned one. I’l have to show her these! πŸ˜€

I also noticed the wing snap missing and agree it is all about the look. I love how soft the inserts are though! I just prepped mine and am ready to try them out. Thanks for the review!
