{Wee Ones by JaJoC} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

Wee Ones by JaJoC is an adorable Etsy shop based out of Ontario, Canada, that was created in 2004. It was created by a WAHM who fell in love with cloth diapers and started creating her own, along with some other baby cloth diapering essentials.

I recently reviewed their one size fitted organic cotton & bamboo diaper (retails for $20). I absolutely love the naturalness of the fibers, and its natural look that goes along with it, of course. Nothing says clean and retro-modern {if that makes sense?} more than this diaper, in my opinion. Made of natural organic fibers, it's a pure ivory color with white snaps (or you can also get multi/colored snaps). It has an adorable "ruffly" edge (no FOE (fold over elastic)) on this one, to keep it even more natural; and it's been surged along the edges for extra security. There are soooooo many snaps on this puppy, which is what allows for it to be a "one size" diaper, afterall. Pretty sweet. There is also a pair of snaps on the inside for attaching the organic insert it comes with. This makes it a pretty unique diaper in that it's not technically a "pocket" diaper, yet you can add an extra insert and be it one that won't shift around, might I add, as it snaps in place! The insert is made of 2 layers, and the body of the diaper is made of 3 layers, but you can also upgrade the insert to a trifold, which would make it compatible for overnight usage. You DO need a diaper cover with this one, however, as their is no PUL cover attached to the diaper itself to make it waterproof. Wee Ones by JaJoC does sell diaper covers separately, for your convenience.


Organic Cotton & Bamboo One Size Fitted Diaper

My son tried it out for me, and it fit nice and snug against him. As he is getting near 3yo, we were almost near the end of the snaps (size-wise), but we still had a couple snaps to go, and I could see that there were just so many more snaps to adjust it many ways & make it as small as need be for an infant. And I felt so good about having such natural, organic fibers against his skin. It protected him fully with no leaks or red marks around the skin, meaning the fit was great!

I also had the privilege of testing out their "Traineez" Pull Up Pant (retails for $13), which is constructed from 1 layer of PUL and one absorbant layer. The Pull Up Pant is lined around the edges with the fold over elastic (FOE) that is very soft to the skin. Its purpose is to keep the messes contained within the pull up pant, of course, keeping your child's clothing dry from their accidents. I love the design of the pairs of snaps on the sides of the traineez to help make changing time easier, too.


Traineez Pull Up Pant

So my son is currently undergoing potty training, although, not really on a regular basis {my fault, my fault...}, which would explain his non-success at it. I think that, being near the end of my pregnancy (that, and not being much of a homebody, which I hear is pretty necessary to really nail it down!), I just don't have the energy or stamina to be running him to the potty every 20 minutes (any advice out there for how to make this thing happen....for good??!). Anyway. So we gave Wee Ones' Training Pants a go, and we actually did have leakage onto his clothing. That being said, I think there's a valid explanation for our particular experience. I wouldn't recommend these for those of you who are not in full force potty training. The Traineez do have a soft (nice against the skin!), absorbant liner in them, afterall, but it's not at all like the disposable training diapers in that they aren't nearly as absorbant. In fact, if we're honest, the big box retailers' pull-ups are really just a glorified diaper except that you can pull them up and down. I mean, afterall, they hold just as much wetness as a regular disposable diaper ~ therefore, not really for "training," in my opinion. So, all this to say, if your child is well into potty training and is starting to "catch" him or herself in the act of going {and notices the sensation, etc.} , then these are for you!

I also must add that they did fit quite well in his jeans (not near the bulk as a regular cloth diaper}, and I loved the idea of having natural fabric up against him versus all the chemicals of disposable training pants/diapers. Now if I can just get this potty training thing going on a more consistent basis, the Traineez Pull Up will really be handy!

Now for the good stuff!
