How would you like to win your very own Martin 4.0 Diaper? Here’s your chance! It’s the newest limited edition print from Cotton Babies.

Here’s the story behind the Martin name: Martin Johnson was a photographer, a filmmaker, a naturalist, an author, but most of all — a voyager. From Africa to the South Pacific Islands, he embarked on various adventures with his wife by his side, researching and studying the wildlife and people of distant lands. Through photography, books and films, their findings captivated people all over the world and inspired the design of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Winning Colors Baby is Lindsay McGovern’s medium for sewing “custom creations for your little winner.” She sent me a complimentary tester to sample and share with you, and has also offered a giveaway (more details below)!

You can choose from an AIO, an AI2 and a cover in a variety of fabrics, and you can fine-tune options like snap colors and placement, inner lining and sizing. Mothers can also mail their own fabric, or “mix and match” two different fabrics, both which really expand the customization options. Sizes offer are Newborn, Small, Medium and Large, plus a one-size option for $5 extra. I’ve enjoyed checking into Lindsay’s Facebook page where she posts her in-progress and completed diaper projects. Just today, she announced a new product addition: cotton velour/cotton knit baby wipes.

One of the very first complimentary diapers I received last year as a BabyKicks Ambassador was the one-size Organic Fitted. So I can definitely say this is the longest I’ve ever tested a diaper before publishing a review. In fact, this long duration gave me the chance to try it as both a diaper and pull-up trainer, so keep reading for my thoughts on its performance.

Here’s a quick look at the BabyKicks Organic Fitted diaper:

As you might have already guessed, Wonderful Bambino makes one of my favorite fitted diapers. It’s a super soft and trim nighttime solution. Wonderful Bambino recently added a few more products to their 100% bamboo lineup, and sent a complimentary assortment (pictured above) for me to review: a size 1 (red edge) bamboo prefold, a size 2 (green edge) bamboo prefold, 2 bamboo wipes and 2 bamboo inserts.

Everything shrank about a half inch all around during the initial washing and drying (“prepping”) process, which is very typical for natural fibers. Here are my thoughts on each.
