Butterfly Bottoms Cloth Diapers Review {and Giveaway}



Cassie, owner of Butterfly Bottoms, kindly sent me (Ginger) a One Size AIO (all-in-one) diaper to review for my honest opinion.

To shed some light on her background: Cassie’s “love affair” with cloth diapers began in 2010 when her sister in law was pregnant.  Around 20 weeks of pregnancy with her youngest daughter, Cassie researched the benefits of cloth diapering and knew it was for her!  Growing up, her mom was frequently sewing, which lead to her love of sewing years later.   After trying lots of free diaper patterns and using her own child as a guinea pig, she drafted her own pattern.

I chose a trendy hot pink chevron pattern…super cute!  I think it’s constructed really well, and it’s obvious a lot of thought went into the design.  The AIO consists of an outside layer of PUL, an inside layer of PUL and Organic Bamboo Fleece, and two soaker petals.  



The soakers are sewn in and the top and bottom and are made up of two layers of Hemp Cotton Fleece and two layers of Organic Bamboo Fleece.   You also have the option of adding a stay-dry layer of suede cloth or micro fleece. 

The AIO features a snap down rise with 3 different settings.  My daughter is almost 3 months old and weighs 12 pounds.  I was able to get the best fit using the smallest rise setting and using the 4th snap in on the waist.   This diaper is made to fit babies between 7.5 and 37 pounds, so that leaves plenty of growing room! 

As with most AIO diapers, drying time is longer, but the convenience of not having to stuff anything makes up for it in my opinion.


This diaper has to be one of the most absorbent I’ve tried, and we have quite a variety of brands in our stash.  When we tested the diaper, my girl had it on for two hours and it could have been on much longer.  We took it off because it was bath time J Just to give you an idea, I broke the “rules” and only washed the diaper 2 times before using it (the instructions state to wash 5-6 times so the fabric will reach full absorbency).   Speaking of washing, in case you forget, there is a tag sewn in to remind you to cold rinse, hot wash, and 2x cold rinse.  And hang dry or tumble dry low.

In closing, for being an AIO it’s still a fairly trim-fitting diaper.  I also think it’s well made and affordable!

    1. Beth, I also felt the same. Diaper Bags are better than getting a cloth diaper.

      Thanks Miranda for this lovely blog post. I like all the pictures of the diaper bags. Keep sharing.
