Buttons Diapers are a great, affordable option for cloth diapering families. Their colorful prints and high-quality details make them ideal for diapering one child or several, and the one-size cover design and snap-in inserts allow these diapers to grow with your baby!
Buttons Diapers are composed of two parts — a PUL cover and a snap-in microfiber insert. The covers have several rows of adjustable waist snaps allowing Buttons to fit babies from 9 to 35 pounds. They have elastic along the waistband and double gussets along the legs to prevent any leaks from happening. The PUL material is slightly stretchy itself to create a snug, universal fit on all babies. The cover sides have two snaps for duel-attachment points to the front of the diaper cover.
On an infant, there may not be any waist snaps showing once the diaper is sized to fit, while on a toddler the diaper may have several waist snaps showing in the middle. The cover stays fully secured no matter which waist snaps are used, even all the way out to the side edges of the cover.
The vertical rows of rise snaps allow the bottom of Buttons Diaper covers to adjust upwards to create a smaller diaper for tiny babies. The diaper can be adjusted vertically to three different sizes as a baby grows. Buttons Diapers fit babies 9 to 35 pounds thanks to the multi-row sizing snaps.
Buttons Diaper inserts snap into the cover at two different attachment points at the front and back of the cover. Simply align the snaps on the insert with the snaps on the inside of the cover and attach to prevent the insert from shifting during wear.
Microfiber Daytime Inserts - 4 microfiber layers + fleece top layer
Microfiber Nighttime Doublers - 6 microfiber layers
Hemp/Cotton Daytime Inserts - 4 natural fabric layers of 55% hemp and 45% cotton + fleece top layer
Hemp/Cotton Nighttime Doublers - 5 natural fabric layers of 55% hemp and 45% cotton
Buttons Diapers nighttime doublers attach to the daytime inserts with another snap, to create a double-thickness barrier for overnight wear. The nighttime doubler is made to be used with a daytime insert snapped on top, since only the daytime insert has a top layer of soft moisture-wicking fleece to keep baby's skin dry.
Buttons inserts and covers are machine washable and dryer-safe. I usually disassemble the insert from the cover when washing them, although you could leave the insert attached to the cover. The inserts have durable stitching all the way around the edge which keeps the moisture-absorbing layers and top layer of fleece intact. These wear very well over time. I've been using our Buttons Diapers for more than two years and they are still in good condition thanks to these regular washing tips and the occasional cloth diaper deep clean.
Buttons Diapers double leg gussets keep all the messes inside without being "too tight" around babies' legs. The gussets have the perfect amount of tension to fit babies of all sizes and offer a snug fit without pinching.
Buttons Diapers are available in 10+ colors and 6 patterns. Here we show Marina (aqua), Charming (chevron), Thicket (leaf), and Peony (pink). Many of their colors are gender neutral so you can use them for all your small children. I currently have a two-and-a-half-year-old and a one-month-old wearing Buttons Diapers. I love their simplicity and colorful, neutral designs.
Buttons Diapers' sturdy design and quality elastic will last throughout a child's entire diapering stage. Each cloth diaper cover has an embroidered button on the back, adding an extra touch of cute to an already cute diaper.
Buttons Diapers were created by a husband and wife team and designed to be easy to use and affordable for everyone. Buttons believes in keeping life simple even when it comes to diapering. Their diapers are CPSIA certified, which means they are safe for your baby and good for the environment. When you purchase Buttons Diapers, you are supporting a family business.
