Back in 2010 when Michelle Leyenhorst was on maternity leave with her newborn baby in Maple Ridge, B.C she was inspired to create a new brand of cloth diapers that met all of the requirements she was looking for when searching for a cloth diaper to use with her baby. Michelle decided to embark on a journey to provide families with a diaper that was modern, trendy, high quality, eco-friendly, safe and affordable. Enter Hipkiddo cloth diapers!
All Hipkiddo cloth diapers are Oeko-Tex Certified and free of harmful substances and they are safe for baby’s delicate skin. They are also extremely affordable.
I started cloth diapering my first son when he was a few months old and I got to try many brands and types of cloth diapers with him. After he was potty-trained I donated my colorful stash to a family who couldn’t afford to purchase a new stash and they have been using our diapers since.
With baby #2 I was determined to start cloth diapering right from the start. I wanted to put together the perfect stash for him and we luckily got to try Hipkiddo cloth diapers.
I received a selection of Hipkiddo diapers, including their WeeBaby Hip preemie & newborn size, their Naturally Hip (bamboo and organic cotton) and their Inteligently Hip cloth diapers to try.
I have been using Hipkiddo diapers with my son since day one and I have to say that I absolutely love them. They have been a great fit, they are easy to clean and we have experienced no issues so far.
- Weebaby Hip cloth diapers (4-14lbs): The Weebaby Hip diapers were the perfect size for my newborn. They are super trim fitting diapers and they allowed him to fit in his newborn outfits easily.
One Size diapers were a bit too bulky during the early newborn stage and the Weebaby diapers were a perfect fit. I also LOVED the fact that these have a snap down system for the umbilical cord. I highly recommend them if you are starting cloth diapers with your baby from day 1 My chunky monkey outgrew these at 12lbs but they should fit most 14lbs babies. (Material: Outer cover is lined with a single layer waterproof PUL fabric, Inner lining: polar fleece. The sewn in 4 layer insert is made of 100% microfiber terry cloth)
- Naturally Hip (One Size): The Naturally Hip diapers are made with bamboo and organic cotton and they are the perfect solution when dealing with leaks and heavy wetters since bamboo is super absorbent. They have a slim fit as well and heavy duty elastic for the legs and waist. They can be adjusted with the snap system and they feature a double row of snaps across the front.
Like any other OS system they can be started with newborns (8lbs) but they fit a lot better once baby is about 10-14lbs. I have started using these with my son and I love the extra absorbency, the only thing I am not crazy about is that bamboo allows baby to feel the wetness, unlike fleece that keeps his skin dry at all times. (Material: Outer Cover: is lined with waterproof PUL, Inside:60% Bamboo, 30% Organic Cotton, 10% cool plus)
- Intelligently Hip (One Size): These diapers are super soft and stretchy and they are slim fitting. They feature a double row snap system and they are super easy to adjust plus an extra cross-over snaps that make it easy for baby to grow in the diaper from small to large. I love that the polar-fleece is super super soft and it keeps my baby’s skin dry and comfortable. I haven’t experience any leaks with these yet either but I would double the inserts once my son is older and during night time. (Material: Outer Material: Waterproof PUL lining to protect against leaks, Inner Material: Only the softest polar-fleece, Inserts: Each diaper comes with one very absorbent 3 layer micro fiber insert)
In general I am loving my stash of diapers and I am happy to have started my little one with cloth diapers since day one.
