Review & Giveaway: Envibum diapers

If you want a diaper that no one notices, then please, pass on envibums. I really mean this. If you want to run into the nursery during church service, change your baby's diaper, and slip back into service in the space of just one song, do not put an envibum on your child.


Why? Because some other mom will see the minky cuteness you are strapping to your wee one's tush and ask you about it. She'll probably want to feel it. Then she'll have to know how much it costs, how well it works, where she can get her own.


It's like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie ... only with cloth diapers.




Envibums are some of the softest, sweetest, cutest diapers I have ever seen. They are so plush that Seven, who has a major love of all things minky, can't seem to keep her hands off of hers. This has me slightly concerned, since envibums have hook and loop closures. She hasn't managed it yet, but I am wondering to what lengths this girl will go to snuzzle that diaper. In other words ... despite it's proven holding capacity, it's no longer a nap time dipe around here!




In addition to buttery fabrics, envibum has simply darling prints. The one Seven is so enamored with is an envicherry. It's been washed and dried multiple times each week for the past two months, and as you can see above, it still looks great. The hook and loop is in fine shape--something I'm always wary of. It's also stain-free. It's an unbleached cotton AIO, so I consider a lack of stains something of a miracle. I'm wondering if the unique inner design has anything to do with it? A waffle-weave interior attached to an absorbent pad that can either sit next to the baby's skin or tuck into a pocket stops leaks and keeps solids put. I haven't encountered this on any other diaper, but I like it!




Envibums are OS in additions to being AIOs. Seven fits hers perfectly at a long and lanky 22 lbs. The construction of the stretchy legs somehow magically shrinks and expands to make this diaper fit babies of all sizes. I admit that I was skeptical, so I tried it on a church friend's 9 lb. six week-old. It fit just right. Well, except for the fact that he looked a little funny in such a swanky, girly diaper.






In addition to being a fabulous diaper, envibums have a couple of other stellar features. Most impressive to me is the fact that the owner is unabashedly Christian, and isn't afraid to say so. Check out their logo:




Pretty cool, huh?


On top of that, an extensive list of charities is supported through the sale of these cute diapers. Envibum AIOs retail for $24.99. From that, $2 of every adorable envipink goes to support Crisis Pregnancy Centers. A portion of the envipurple proceeds benefits special needs children. What a blessing this company is!

I'm always in favor of choosing Christians to support with my dollars. Christians who make a sturdy product and pass on the love? Sign me up.


Ready for the giveaway? :-) Rachel, envibum's owner, is giving away one envibum print diaper and an additional absorbency pad to a BOOKS and BAIRNS reader. The winner gets their choice of print ... but you have to promise to email me and let you know what you picked, o.k.?

My fave enivbum diaper is the envihoot or the envipolka. Well, I should say my favorite for a boy. :P Some how I don't think my husband would appreciate a hot pink, fuzzy dipe on our son.
