I’m finally back and trying to make sense of my drafts and blog post backlogs. I did a lot of shopping the last few months but just didn’t have the time (nor the energy!) to write about them. I did take photos though so I will slowly get back into reviewing sites I bought from.
Anyway, since I have a little baby who’s now 7 months old, blogging has really taken a back seat. But the little one is giving me extra reasons to shop! Hahaha so were all good.
When my baby was about a month old, I decided to try cloth diapers. For one, the amount of diaper (and waste) was scary and at one time there was a worker’s strike in the city’s garbage collection company. And one week’s worth of garbage from disposable diapers frankly scared me. Also, my baby’s little bum was sensitive and I had to routinely apply diaper cream to avoid rash. So began my research on cloth diapering.
Since I was just trying it, and I was unsure if I would actually stick to it, I decided to buy somewhere where the quality is OK but not at an exorbitant price like Bumgenius or Charlie Banana. I settled with Sunbaby Cloth Diapers from China. It’s is run by a work from home mom, Sunpei and they have lovely designs.
Shopping on the site was a breeze. Pretty easy since the site is very basic. They only sell by sets of 6, 12 and 24 diapers, and you can select which insert you want from bamboo, microfiber and blended or without inserts. I went with blended (microfiber inside, bamboo outside) as I have read in various review blogs that this is more absorbent.
I chose Size 2 – 12 diapers with 12 microfiber inserts and paid $69 via Paypal. I chose ordinary shipping since I was thinking Cambodia is quite near China anyway. LOL. Fast forward 2 weeks, the package was here. And here are my lovely, fun cloth diapers!!
6 months on.. I’m still using these diapers daily. And surprisingly they held on. I was expecting it to fall apart and I thought I would not begrudge it thinking of the low price. BUT everything is still all good! And I can’t believe how much it has saved me. I don’t cloth diaper full time, only during daytime and baby uses disposables when its time for bed at night. But I still managed to save a lot of diaper money! I’ll do a more thorough review of this on my mommy blog – Bag of Thoughts.
Sunbaby Diapers get two thumbs up from me. Definitely worth a BB and IHT rating from GirlonaThriftHunt! Great selection, easy shopping, fast shipping, and items are of good quality.
