Fluff Stuff: Bumkins Snap-In-One Cloth Diaper Review & GIVEAWAY!

If you followed me on Instagram pre-baby to the arrival of my first Huntley Lynn, you’d probably already know that I am a big fan of cloth diapering. With a growing newborn Penelope and soon-to-be working washing machine, I am happy to start stuffing fluff and sharing adorable CD pics again!

While I still get a sense of satisfaction after having stuffed our fluff, my mommy laziness still has me reaching for the all-in-one diapers first before grabbing ones with inserts. I was ecstatic to learn that Bumkins accommodated my love for aio cloth diapers and had created the Snap-In-One cloth diaper! As with most fitted, pocket, aio, and hybrid style cloth diapers, the Snap-In-One has a three snap rise with hip and waist snaps for easy adjusting so you can get just the right fit for your little one. The shell of the diaper is made waterproof with a PUL exterior fabric with TPU to make it stain and odor resistant, while the interior fabric is made breathable and natural with a deluxe layer of cozy cotton/bamboo rayon blend to keep baby comfortable. I was amazed by how soft the interior fabric felt right off the bat! One of the most unique features is unlike other AIO diapers, this Snap-In-One diaper gives you the option to customize the absorbency. The detachable snap insert features minky fabric for comfort with interior layers of microfiber for absorbency. You can also tuck the insert in the pocket to allow for natural fabric against the skin or leave out for a stay-dry effect when needed (say at night time). Bumkins also offers the option to purchase cotton/bamboo Snap-In-One inserts too. Another unique thing that I noticed about this diaper is that unlike other aio diapers which are usually all sewn together, this Snap-In-One makes washing and getting the stains out a lot easier since you can actually remove the liner!

With Penelope’s sudden growth this past week, I knew it was time to start CD’ing! She has the cutest bullfrog belly and chubby thighs so I was actually able to get a nice fit and haven’t had any trouble with blow-outs (which tends to happen sometimes with disposables). The minimum weight recommendation for this cloth diaper is seven pounds and can be used to a maximum 32 pounds baby/toddler.

ITS GIVEAWAY TIME! (Click Here!)

Whether you already cloth diapering, considering, or are hesitant but would like to try – Bumkins and I would like to give you an opportunity to win your own Bumkins Snap-In-One Diaper! All you have to do is follow me on Instagram @TiffWall, like the giveaway photo, and tag a friend – it’s that easy! Winner will be announced next Tuesday 😉

Sunday Brunch & The Aquarium of the Pacific

This morning we decided to take advantage of the sunny day and spent time at the Long Beach Shoreline Marina and Aquarium of the Pacific. We recently received this shirt from Moozega‘s new line, one of the awesome shops we are so lucky to be a brand rep for on Instagram and such. If you’ve never heard of them, you really must check them out! The shirts are all printed on American Apparel fine jersey cotton knit material and the print quality is just superior! The ink doesn’t fade in the wash and the designs are gender neutral and wonderfully unique! These are by far some of our favorite printed tees we own and this elephant one was requested by Tanner and I because we just love elephants! As you can see, we tend to put Huntley is shirts sized a bit bigger than her actual size, due to her Winnie the Pooh-like belly!

RANDOM, but here are some reasons why we love elephants! Did you know that elephants are pack animals that usually stay herds with their families.  They are also known to be extremely intelligent and form very strong emotional bonds! An elephant’s memory is truly impeccable as he can actually remember an elephant he’s met hundreds of years ago if he ran into him again. Also, elephants will usually bury a fellow elephant that has died, even if they didn’t know that elephant! But enough about elephants, here’s a flood of photos from today’s outing!

Since it was Sunday and a perfect one at that, we knew the aquarium would somewhat be packed and decided to just hit up a few parts that we already knew were Huntley’s favorites such as the seals/sea-lions tunnel, the penguins, and the Baja California exhibit.

Afterwards, we headed home and took a much needed family nap! Luckily when we woke from our naps the weather was still warm and the sun was still shining bright so we decided to let Huntley play in the backyard for a bit with water tables and play set.

All in all it was a great Sunday spent! How was your weekend spent?

Huntley’s Vintage Glam Nursery Tour

IMG_9847

Description:

Originally I had envisioned a modern chic-nursery in teal and yellow, but fell in love with this crib (not at all modern) and decided on a completely different style for this nursery.

When I was pregnant, I would always be on the lookout for things that would work in the nursery. Sometimes, I would just buy things because I loved it, not because it would match – you’ll notice I use tons of prints and patterns. If you knew me, you would know me as a collector of vintage! My mother-in-law is a perfect example of this, she purchased from flea markets/antique stores, etc. some of the most beautiful vintage things including the ceramic shoes, cream hanger hook, and wooden gold floral piece in the corner. Three of the frames and art on the gallery wall are also vintage, two of which I painted in gold glitter.

I knew pink would be perfect for this vintage-glam theme, but my husband didn’t want a bubblegum pink and so we decided on this pretty iced peach.

As some might think this small room seems a bit cluttered and too small for all that’s in it, Huntley just loves taking tours around her room with so much to see and touch!

Design Inspiration:

The inspiration for our baby girl’s nursery all started with this beautiful Bratt Decor crib and vintage dressers!

Decorating Style:

Nothing to match-y, personalization is key! Many of the things that were used in the room were either gifted or found at thrift stores and on Craigslist. One of my favorite gifts was from a cousin of mine who got a little ceramic shoe personalized with Huntley’s name in gold handwriting – I thought this was such a sweet gift and so perfect in the room!

Nursery Plans!

OK, if you know me, you know that I love to shop and I love to decorate! Half the excitement of finding out the gender for me was for these reasons! I know that’s terrible, but I’m being totally honest with you!

As I have mentioned. I was incredibly excited to find out that we were having a girl. I had already bought the crib and matching bedding for our little princess, even though we didn’t know the gender! But not to worry, I knew what I would do in case we found out we were having a boy, and don’t get me wrong, that nursery would’ve been badass! But, we’re having a girl and it isn’t going to be much different than Huntley’s nursery, other than it’s a tad bigger than hers and probably won’t get chandeliers since Tanner does not want to deal with those again (unless, I can’t help it and get an electrician…wink*). Instead of a Bratt Decor Casablanca crib like Huntley’s, this baby girl is getting a Simmons Monaco Antique Silver Crib. I know this crib might not be as high-quality as the Bratt Decor crib, but I got a great deal on it and just couldn’t pass it up! Also, I got a a beautiful crib bedding set. The maker is Cottontale Designs Lollipops & Roses (also, not as high-quality as Huntley’s Bebe Chic Angelica), but matches nonetheless – go figure!
