AMP Cloth Diaper Giveaway!!!!

I am really excited about this giveaway!!

A sweet friend of mine, Amy, is in the process of starting the cloth diapering business Beautiful Baby Gear.  I wanted to help spread the word about the amazing diapers she has discovered, and now sells, so that her little business can start booming! 

A bit of background - Amy and I went to church together in Mandeville, LA.  I also went to high school with Amy's husband Patrick!  He was a star wrestler at our school!  I love when my friends find success - and I love helping with that success - so I just had to work with Amy for this giveaway!

Y'all know that I am not a cloth diapering momma.  But, my friend Christie (who recently found out she is expecting #2) has just ventured into the world of cloth diapers!  Christie was so sweet to volunteer to review the AMP diapers so y'all could learn a bit more about Amy's product!  And, two lucky readers will win the AMP diaper of their choice!

So, here is Christie's review:

When I was asked by Lindsey and Amy to review AMP diapers, I was really excited! As a fairly new CD'er, I am always willing to try out new diapers. When we made the decision to start cloth diapering, some major factors were absorbency, fit, trimness, and convenience. I was sent these two diapers:



AMP Stay-Dry AIO (all-in-one)
 


 
AMP Duo Diaper with a bamboo insert
 


 
 


 
When I received these diapers, the first thing I noticed was how incredibly stretchy they were. Usually, cloth diapers seem to be stiff and hard to manipulate so it fits well, but the elastic at the legs caught my eye!

The AMP AIO diaper was ready to go with one wash and ONE tumble in the dryer (which is amazing for an AIO diaper since the insert is built-in). The AMP duo pocket diaper was ready within one wash and dry, and I washed the bamboo inserts multiple times to achieve the highest absorbency. Finally, I was ready to try these out on my little guinea pig!

I started with the AIO because I was really excited to try out a cloth diaper that is basically as convenient as a disposable diaper.

As you can see, it has an incredibly trim appearance. Also, the velcro closure gave us a very snug fit around her tummy!


I put her on her tummy so she could scoot around a little. Usually, with some brands of cloth diapers, I have noticed that when Cailyn moves around, the diaper bunches up and she leaks out her legs. After about an hour of playtime, the diaper was like I had just put it on.
 





It stayed leak-free for 2 1/2 hours (that's usually the amount of time I go between changing diapers). I also can't believe how incredibly trim it was - usually I put Cailyn in a disposable when we go out because cloth diapers can get so bulky. This one was as trim as a disposable and the fact that everything is built-in was so convenient.

Next, I tried the AMP Duo Diaper with bamboo insert. Most of my cloth diaper collection is made up of pocket diapers and they can be tricky at times. Between stuffing an insert and making sure it doesn't bunch up after a length of time, pocket CD's can be very challenging. Also, Cailyn tends to leak out of the legs of pocket diapers since the insert can create bulkiness in the bottom of the diaper, pulling the elastic away from her legs.

The fleece lining of the AMP Duo Diaper was super soft to the touch. Also, as soon as I put it on, I noticed how snug the leg holes were to her legs, even with the bamboo insert stuffed in! It seems like the leg holes or more ruched than other cloth diapers, so that may be why they fit so much better.
 




I let her play with it on, and this one stayed leak-free for 2.5 hours as well. I thought it was too good to be true for a pocket diaper!
 


Although I have never heard of AMP diapers before this review, I have to say they are incredibly underrated. All-in-all, they worked well absorbency-wise, were very trim, convenient, and fit her legs perfectly. If you are looking for a new brand of CD's or are about to give up on pocket diapers because of the awkward fit some of them have, I would definitely recommend trying AMP diapers!
