My name is Megan and I am a co-owner of Bouncing Babies. I guess the basics that you need to know about me is that I’m a married Mom Mom of 2 beautiful children and we live in Washington. I have a son who has just turned 2 this past July, and a daughter who was born this past May. Up until taking over Bouncing Babies with Stacey, I was a stay at home Mom Mom. As you can tell, my son picked out my title, and I’ll forever be known as Mom Mom. My children are truly the light of my life, and while I’m blessed to be their Mom Mom, I have always wanted to own my own business. I never really knew what kind of business I wanted to own, until I discovered my passion for cloth diapering. I started cloth diapering my son when he was about 7 months old, and have been cloth diapering my daughter since day 1. As someone who thought that cloth diapering was overwhelming, and to be honest gross to care for, I’m the biggest advodocate of helping people who are curious learn the realities of modern cloth diapering. I feel incredibly blessed to have this opportunity at this time in my life and look forward to meeting and working with all of our fabulous customers! Hi I’m Stacey and I am a co-owner of Bouncing Babies as well. I am a mom to two beautiful little girls. My oldest is almost 5 and my youngest is 2. My husband and I have been married for 8 years and live in Minnesota. I am very passionate about cloth diapers and knew I wanted to own a cloth diaper business shortly after we started cloth diapering my 2nd baby. I used that as a great excuse to try just about every major brand of cloth diaper out there as well as many accessories! Some might say I was a bit of a cloth diaper addict! We won’t talk about exactly how many diapers I had in my stash! ;-) Anyway, I enjoy spending time with my family. We absolutely love to travel and try to travel as much as we possibly can. In my own free time, I enjoy playing sports and play softball through the spring, summer and fall! I look forward to getting to know all of you better! Collectively, we have approximately 4 years of experience with cloth diapering. We initially met through cloth diapering forums, and truly value the community that is cloth diapering. We hope to foster this environment and support each of you in persuing your interest in using cloth.
I'm a big fan of Thirsties and their Duo Wraps. The only Thirsties products we had were all size 2 because of McKenzie but with a new baby, I wanted to see Thirsties from the size 1 perspective.
Macyn is currently about 12lbs and this cover is a great fit. It has a great leg fit so it's not loose and the extra gusset insures messes stay inside only! I bought a Thirsties prefold to go with this cover and I like how trim they are. We have some others that are very bulky and it looks weird because of the big bulge at the back of the diaper. Because the cover is so trim, it looks great under clothes and you can't tell there's a cloth diaper underneath. These covers do have laundry tabs but they don't always stay attached so I get the occasional latch of another diaper on the velcro. My favorite part about the velcro is that you're able to crossover the tabs. As you can see in the above picture, one has to be on top of the other because Macyn's waist is that small, but the snaps do not yet have that crossover option. Thirsties Duo Wraps are by far my favorite prefold/cover combination and i highly recommend trying them out because you too will fall in love with them like I did!
Bouncing Babies not only sells Thirsties, but many other brands like Fuzzibunz, Bum Genius, Grovia, and many more. You can also get accessories like diaper sprayers and detergent.
Another neat item you can get on their website is this Newborn Diaper Package.
Included in this package:
6 OsoCosy Unbleached Indian Cotton Prefolds
2 Thirsties Duo Wrap Cloth Diaper Covers
2 groVia Neborn All In One Diapers
2 FuzziBunz Pocket Cloth Diapers
2 bumGenius Newborn All In One Diaper
2 Snappi Cloth Diaper Fasteners
1 Set of Pins
As long as you live in the US, all you have to do is provide your preference of boy, girl, neutral colors and then aplix or snaps and you're all set! Retail value is $129.95
Looking back, I wish we would've got something like this for Macyn because she's 3 1/2 months old and still having issues fitting One Size diapers correctly because her skinny legs.
I highly recommend this Duo Wraps!
Size 1 is 6-18lbs 0-9 months
Size 2 is 18-40lbs 9+ months
With aplix or snap options, you can get the aplix for Size 1 when babies don't know how to take off a diaper yet, and then Size 2 in snaps
The Thirsties Duo Wraps retail on their site for $12.75 but currently are on sale for $10.84
