Lauren with Wee Expressions Cloth Diaper Giveaway

Homemade + Cloth Diaper = Happiness for me

I am thrilled to get to introduce Lauren to you today. She just opened a new store in Etsy called Wee Expressions. I can't wait to tell you about the cloth diapers she makes!


She makes Fitteds out of flannel with 2 layers of Zorb for the soakers plus an extra layer at the front for the baby boys! They are SUPER soft!!

They come in 5 sizes - newborn, small, medium, large, x-large with some of the weight classes overlapping a bit for longer use. Every baby should fit into a Wee Expression!

We got our package in the mail the other day. I love it when seller's have that extra touch with my order. It came wrapped in cute ribbon with two safety pins attached to use. Here is P'Diddy posing with it.


Lauren is a stay at home mom to four girls (busy mama!) aging from 11 to 13 months. In order to save a bit of money she began sewing her own diapers and just recently began to sell them! She also makes cloth wipes, burp cloths, bibs, and nursing pads out of her store. She loves to sew clothes too so maybe watch for that in the future!


I couldn't wait to try the diaper on P'Diddy. Remember these are fitteds, so you'll need to use safety pins (provided by Lauren) or a snappi to hold it together. Though for a $1 extra you can add hooks and loops. Snaps coming in the future! And you'll have to add a cover on top and hide the cute fabric.

Aren't the dinosaurs adorable? Did I tell you got a matching wipe in my package too?
This diaper fit EXTREMELY well! There were no gaps whatsoever and fit him as snug as a bug.
We LOVED it!

We even did the ultimate test ~ Night time!
He had the diaper on for a stretch in the night and FILLED it with you know what. Not one drop overflowed on to the cover. Wahoo!

Do you know the best part? They are affordable! Prices range from $8.60 - $10.35 depending on size. So go and grab yourself a few! She'll make what you need :)

Well I know you want to know if Lauren is a Crunchy Mama. Here is what she said...
I see myself as being on my way to a full blown crunchy mama! I breastfeed, use cloth diapers, the baby still sleeps in our bed, partly b/c there's nowhere else for her right now, but also b/c I feel she is safer. We had an organic garden for the past 2 years now. Now, homebirth, I can't say I've done that! I support it, though! I love the idea of gentle discipline too.
