Thanks to Crystal at Baby Beduga, I was given the opportunity to try
a 2-in-1 diaper in exchange for my honest opinion!
As with any product review, my experience may differ from yours.
*UPDATE* Baby Beduga closed its online store in 2015, but you can still order diapers directly from Crystal, according to her blog.
There always seems to be a lot of chatter among cloth diapering mothers about imported pockets, so if you’ve been looking for a USA-made option, then today’s review (and giveaway) might intrigue you.
Crystal is the innovative WAHM behind Baby Beduga, which is based out of Wyoming, and has just launched an American-made pocket diaper for the great price of $10.50.
We received a sample in “Cocoa Brown,” which is a rich chocolate color. Here’s the diaper at its smallest and largest settings. There are five sets of snaps on the rise which offers a really wide range of sizes!
And opened up fully:
Here’s what’s included in that low price:
- One-size that will fit babies from approximately 7 to 35+ pounds
- Cross-over snaps for fitting on smaller babies
- Inside flap which allows you to use the shell as a cover instead
- FIVE rise snap settings (the standard is usually four)
- Microsuede lining and a built-in inner gusset (UPDATE: this feature is no longer found on this diaper)
- Hip snaps that allow you to customize the leg openings
- A strip of PUL on the inside which is an extra guard against leaks AND makes the waistband stay flat and not pucker up
- Made in El Paso, Texas (exception is the microfiber insert, which comes from China)
- Six bright colors to choose from
- Includes a 1-year warranty on manufacturer defects
I really do think Crystal has accomplished something big here with a USA-made pocket under $11.00. To put this into perspective: a Thirsties Duo Diaper is $17.50 (although the insert is thicker), BumGenius 4.0 is $17.95 and Knickernappies and Wahmies are over $21.00.
There’s so much I like about Baby Beduga: the personal service, the USA-made components and the great prices. Other store offerings include liners, extra inserts and wet bags. Crystal has also personally designed a Super Saver Trainer (with insert included!) that retails for just $9.00; hang tight because I’ll be posting a review on that very soon.
