WAHM Wednesday: Custom Cloth by Denise

I've been anxiously waiting to post this review! It's for my very first-ever WAHM cloth diaper! The cloth community is so full of talented people, and a lot of "big-name" diaper companies started with WAHM's! It was through the tight-knit cloth community that I was "virtually introduced" to my next mama-made company.



Custom Cloth by Denise was founded by a lovely WAHM who not only has 15 month old twins, but two older children as well. Yes, Denise and her hubby have FOUR children, all under the age of 10, all cloth-diapered from birth. If that doesn't exhaust you just thinking about it, she is also the brains, creativity, and labor behind Custom Cloth by Denise. I fell in love with her pocket diapers with just one look. First of all, they're pockets, a quick way to my heart. Secondly, she has whimsical twist on prints, and lastly they fit B like a glove. I rarely get the opportunity to say that (especially with sized diapers), but this one is the real deal. Denise so graciously provided a diaper of my choice for this review.

Let's start with her design: A pocket. Each diaper comes in your choice of hook and loop, or snaps. I chose snaps since B is quite the Houdini when it comes to hook and loops. You then get to choose your choice of colors for the PUL (outer) layer and the inner. You also get the choice of flannel or fleece for your inner. I've never had a flannel inner and was interested to see how it held up. So I went with the flannel. Each diaper also comes with a soaker insert. The soaker is comprised of 6 layers of terry cloth inside a flannel cover. It doesn't get much more soft or absorbent than that! 

Look at those colors! This was after MULTIPLE washes

So there I had it, my diaper picked out, all I had to do was wait. If you're a true cloth addict, you know the waiting for the fluff mail is the hardest part!! :) When my diaper arrived I couldn't wait to try it out! 









I guess now is as good a time as any to let you in on my favorite part. The "fun" part of the diaper, the pattern part, is on the INSIDE!! From the outside, it looks like most other modern cloth diapers. A very bright, fun, orange. But the second those snaps are undone, BAM! The super heroes hit you and you have a very soft inner with a beautiful bold pattern! The soaker insert is also made of the same material as the inner. Sheer genius for people like me who are obsessively making sure the right insert goes with the right diaper (oh the plight of the pocket diaper...).
Snug fit, no red marks!
Nice trim waist!
 
I can't say enough fabulous things about this diaper or the mama behind it. The diaper is such a great fit on my little B that I have yet to worry about a leak, either #1 or #2. I even had a couple non-cloth diapering mama's admiring this beautiful gem! The diaper itself is trim and fits easily under B's shorts without having to go up a size or more just to fit his fluffy bum. Also, the waist snaps have my favorite "wing drop" snap to make sure the diaper stays where it's supposed to. It's safe to say this diaper has shaken up the ranks of "first-grabbed diapers" in my house! It's definitely one of my new go-to's! 

Denise has been an absolute pleasure to work with, always fast to answer an email and clarify any questions. Denise is also an Army wife, so supporting Custom Cloth by Denise also supports the "Buy Veteran" initiative and each diaper is proudly MADE IN THE USA! :)

  3. I would choose a one size pocket diaper in Woodland Camo with digital camo on the inside and Velcro closure! My stepfather and brother both served in the Army the Iraq War, my stepsister is in the Air Force, my grandfather served in the Navy and World War II and the Korean War, and my mother works at the military hospital on base so they would ALL get a kick out of this!

    I love the review, and makes me want to try it! I've never had pockets- All I've used are Flip or gDiaper- I like the idea of reusing the covers- But I really want to try AIOs!
