She wanted to send me some of Cloth Bottom Baby's new clothes to try out with baby J. So glad G is potty trained and need not participate in this review.

The first is to buy a size or two up. That's usually what I've done for shorts and pants, and it's really unfortunate because they are too long or loose if I do end up using a disposable for some reason. The onsie situation is tough because if it's big enough to stretch over the cloth diaper bubble booty, it's often too big in the belly width or shoulders and it hangs off the baby on the top. That can be a safety risk, but it's also just a silly look on the baby. Or again, say you do use a disposable diaper for some reason (or an ultra-trim fitting cloth diaper), then the bigger onesies are rendered useless.
Then there's option two, which is to buy regular size clothes and just stretch them out by squishing baby and cloth diaper into them. That deteriorates the life of the clothes by ripping seams, threads, fabric, and hurting the quality of the item. Not to mention hurting any future resale/hand-me down possibility from said squishing.

I've gotten an opportunity to try many of their current products with J, and we love them. Here's why;

They have rompers. The fit of the rompers are my favorite because I, like a lot of moms, can usually get away with buying the next size up onsies, but rompers....well the next size up for them can either result in a fabric-swimming baby or still squished bottoms, depending on the cut. And I really like rompers, they're so practical and cute, not to mention comfy for the baby. So J's already worn that for a play date, to the park, and to church.

The hang tag comes embedded with wildflower seeds so that you can plant it! Even my often hard-to-impress husband said, "now that is pretty cool!" Plus the logo is adorable--the cloth diaper looks like a little owl.
