The Little Bee Co. Diaper Review and Giveaway


When I found about The Little Bee Co. and that they donate a diaper for each diaper sold I really wanted to try these diapers out!  The Little Bee Co. sent me a diaper in exchange for my opinion.

Just a little about their mission to give diapers to children in need from their website: 

 
Our "bee changed and change the world" mission is our core: 'For each diaper purchased The Little Bee Co. will donate a diaper to an orphan in need'. Along with providing a quality diaper, our passion is to help children in need and bring an awareness to the orphan crisis consuming the world today.
 
Why Diapers?
Orphans, especially those in 3rd world countries, do not have proper diapering available. A large number of orphanages use split pants, rags or often times no diaper at all. These precious babies find themselves in unhealthy and unsanitary conditions that cause an already bad situation to be far worse.
The diapers shipped to each orphan enable a healthier diapering system and a comfort they may otherwise never receive. Our mission is our core “bee changed and change the world”. Together we can make a difference.
 
Go HERE to see more information about their "Diaper Drops".
 
 
For my review I chose the African Rain diaper in Bee Changed Microsuede pocket OS.  I love the color of this diaper!  At the time I didn't know that the color actually represented something!  After more research, I did learn that each color of diaper represents a different country.  You can read more about each specific color on their website.  African Rain is designed with the children of Africa in mind.  Often there is little to no clean drinking water in some regions of the country and the children pray for rain.  What a blessing this company is!

 
 
What I love
 
-When I received my diaper it also came with a sample of the detergent Bee Clean (one load). 

-The diaper's have front elastic to make for a great fit!  The Bee Changed information page has great tips on how to prep and get the right fit. 

-There are two rows of snap downs offering a better fit to grow with.  When we used both inserts I did not snap down at all.  With only the smaller insert I did snap down one row.  Just to give you an idea little girl is 21 months old and 25lbs.

-Two inserts included and they snap together-One is larger and fold's down as you can see below.

-This makes for great absorbency.  These are microfiber but they also offer a set of 55% Hemp/45% Organic Cotton Double Insert Set ($8) This would be great if you have a heavy wetter and offers less bulk.

-There are two snaps on each side.  Normally, there would be wing droop but I am not finding that the case with this diaper!


Overall, we are really enjoying this diaper and the quality behind it.  The mission of The Little Bee Co. is encouragement enough to buy alone!  I love that they are a Christian based company and one of the verses quoted on the site is, "James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as Pure and Faultless is to care for orphans..."  We are as Christians supposed to take care of orphans and I love this concept of giving!

You can purchase diapers, cloth pads (Also one for one, they donate to women in need!) and detergent on their website.

You can find The Little Bee Co. on Facebook.

  1. I've seen these diapers on giveaways before, but I had NO idea that had such an AMAZING mission behind them! I learned that Little Bee Co. diapers donate one diaper to an orphan in need, for every diaper purchased. I also learned that each "Bee Changed" diaper color was chosen to represent a specific group of children in need.

  17. I learned many things from The Little Bee Co. They are a great christian company that is willing to donate a cloth diaper (that can be used over and over again) to an orphan for every diaper that is purchased through their company. What a great positive way to spread a company's mission and to give us all a chance to give to the needy. I also learned that they have newborn sizes that will fit preemie to 12 lbs! This is what I will be purchasing for my twin girls that will most likely be itty bitty. Thank you for sharing this wonderful company with me, as a soon mom to be of twins I have been trying to learn the most I can about cloth diapering and your blog as well as the thelittlebeeco.com has helped me today!
