At the time of writing this I am VERY MUCH PREGNANT. I don’t have the energy to put real pants on these days (hello maternity leggings!) let alone get out of the house for some much needed shopping. For that reason, I’ve been making a lot of online purchases these days and simply waiting for the packages to start rolling in. As much as I love the convenience, online shopping can be a huge time investment. I tell myself, “I just need 10 minutes to sit down and make my purchases,” but after comparing products and reading reviews it’s not uncommon for an hour or two to slip away. When it comes to diapering one sweet little bum (soon to be two!) in our house, a Fluff & Stuff subscription from Pockets & Pins eliminates all that guess work and time spent scrolling through a bottomless pit of information.
Vicki is the mama behind Pockets & Pins, and she carefully chooses high quality cloth diapering items and accessories each month to send you a customized subscription box based on your baby’s gender and size. It’s a great way to be a little adventurous in adding a variety of new things to your diapering stash, and your package value will always exceed the subscription cost. I had an opportunity to try one of the Fluff & Stuff subscription boxes, and we’ve been getting great use out of every item Vicki selected for us.
Opening the box felt like opening a present from someone who knows exactly what you need and want. You know the feeling. Here’s a little inventory of what I received:
- Hemp Babies Diaper Doubler
- GroVia O.N.E diaper
- GroVia Mighty Bubbles laundry booster
- Animal Kids leg warmers
The Hemp Babies Diaper Doubler is two layers of hemp and organic cotton. We’ve been using it for overnight diaper stuffing, and after multiple washes, it’s still absurdly soft.
The GroVia O.N.E Diaper arrived in a really cute camping print that Brooks loves. I can see why there’s been so much hype over this diaper. It really has everything you could ever want. Are you a hook & loop person, or do you prefer snaps? This has both! And with two different sizes of snap in soakers, it’s made to grow with your baby. If it weren’t for Pockets & Pins selecting this item for us, I likely wouldn’t have tried the GroVia O.N.E diaper, so this is a great example of how the Fluff & Stuff subscription can introduce you to awesome new products to fall in love with.
Also by GroVia, a package of Mighty Bubbles was included. These little pods can be used individually as a laundry booster or a few at a time if your diaper stash needs a full strip. Not to brag, but I have a kick-butt wash routine, so unless I buy a pre-loved diaper I really never have a need to strip.
I did get a chance to use Mighty Bubbles as a booster after a little snafu with our recent laundry room remodel. Our project fell behind schedule, so I had to postpone diaper washing for a couple of extra days. STINK-Y! But it was so effortless to just toss one of those little pods in with my wash cycle, and the laundry came out perfectly clean and stink-free. I normally measure out small amounts of Calgon, Borax, and Arm & Hammer Washing Soda every few months as a boosting mixture, but this is way easier. Following GroVia’s recommended use for regular boosting, one bag should last about a year.
I was happy to see that they also included a cute accessory along with the more basic diaper necessities. Check out these little football leg warmers!
I’ve actually never used leg warmers on Brooks before, but they made for really easy diaper changes, and they were perfect to pair with his Seahawks onesie.
The Fluff & Stuff subscription box was such a fun experience, and I would definitely recommend it to the cloth diapering family that likes to try several different things. It would also make a great gift to a family just getting started in the cloth world. There’s just so much out there to choose from, and you never know what kind of quality you’re going to get, so why not let Pockets & Pins assemble a variety of highly rated items for you?
