Mac & Mae Baby is a Baby store online and owned by a cloth diapering mama Rhonda. I was introduced to her through my affiliation with The Rebecca's foundation Cloth Diaper Closet.
She started her store after doing research when her first child was taking longer than expected to potty train and decided it was best for them to make the switch to cloth diapers. Rhonda tells me,
" The more research I did, the more I realized how important is was for me to switch, not just for my budget but also our health. When my second child came along and I starting shopping around for diapers, I realized there was a need in my area to bring affordable cloth diapers here, and to educate moms on how different they are from the old fashioned kind. So I decided to start my own business."
Mac & Mae Baby offers a variety of items including cloth diapers, several types of inserts, cloth diaper safe detergent, Pretty Cloth (mama cloth) and much more!
For my review I was sent Minky White with Pink Ladybugs & Flowers. All of her diaper's include a 4 Layer Bamboo Insert.
I was also sent an extra hemp doubler insert as well as a 5 layer Charcoal Bamboo insert that has elastic gussets.
Things I liked about this diaper:
-The cute soft pattern on the outside (who wouldn't)
-The insert that is included is super absorbent
-The inside is made from Suede cloth and provides no piling effect like other diapers. The outside is PUL so it is waterproof.
- The sides have three snaps to provide a better fit and prevent wing droop. They also overlap for newborn sizes. And two rows of snap downs.
-A sample of Country Save detergent is included with each order. I had not used this before but found it worked and now I am considering switching because it is much cheaper than other detergents.
For the hemp doubler I tested it at night. Normally our nighttime routine is either the Buttons diaper with both inserts or a BumGenius with two microfiber inserts and one bamboo (Yes, its huge). The Mac & Mae Diaper worked very well in absorbing liquid!
A few nights out of the week hubby has to put little girl to bed because I am working. I didn't have the diapers stuffed like I normally do so he used the gusseted insert and laid in on top of the diaper with two inserts in the pocket for nighttime! I was surprised at how well it worked and little girl didn't feel wet in the morning!
One last thing that I was sent that Mac & Mae Baby sells was the Girlie Glue and crocheted butterfly bows for hair. Since little girl has a ton of hair I decided to send these to my sister and have her try it out! She loved it for my little niece! Below are a few pictures and she said it was very easy to put on and take off! Basically you put a small dab of the glue (which is made from Agave nectar and other natural ingredients) and the bow should last all day! Such a cute idea!
Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of this diaper and wouldn't mind having a few more. There are so many cute patterns and solid prints to choose from and if you have an older toddler in diapers she offers a line just for them!
