THE WINNER IS KRISTEN, CONGRATS
I had the joy of working with Joy, the owner of Ragababe, let me tell you a little about her (I always love to hear about people that I am working with):
I am a mother of two children, Isabelle, our five year old, and Asaiah, our two year old. My husband, Andy, and I are blessed with bright, healthy children, but both have extreme food intolerance and sensitivities. The first couple years of Isabelle's life were spent researching and experimenting with foods that she could tolerate. Our second child proved no different. At least I knew his diet!
But what I didn't know, was the solution to the sores on their bottoms. That led me to try cloth diapering.
I tried several leading brands of cloth diapers, which brought about some improvement to the sores. What bothered me the most was the performance of many of the diapers. Some had very limited absorbency and would leak after an hour or two. (Too many wet sheets and car seats.) Some would retain odor after washing and required 'stripping'. Others would look 'ratty' after only a few washings-- and the drying time (up to two hours) was way too long. And their looks and fit left something to be desired. There had to be a better diaper.
That pursuit has changed my life. With the help of my husband, mother and father (Carol and Dave), the process began that would mean thousands of hours of research and development, design and testing. Over 300 prototypes were created and meticulously evaluated. Hundreds of design and fabric changes. A lot of tears shed. A lot of prayers answered. Travels around the country. New materials developed for RagaBabe never used in diapers. Problems... and problems solved.
Without leaning on faith in an incredible God, we all might have given up long ago. But with every roadblock, came a breakthrough -- and a better diaper. We are so excited to offer two amazing diapers, our RagaBabe 'Easy' All-In-One and our RagaBabe Organic '2-Step' (Cover with snap-in Insert). Both designed to make you "love cloth diapers!"
It consists of a waterproof PUL cover and an organic cotton insert that snaps into the diaper. Rows of snaps down the front along with a Velcro-style closure make it very sizable. The cover is lined with soft, quick drying, wick-resistant suede cloth. This allows both softness and leak resistance around the legs. The inserts are organic and the organic inserts come in several sizes (S, M, L) to make sure that you get the right absorbency and size your child needs.
This diaper comes in Size 0, 1 and 2 by adjusting the sizes.
9 - 30 lbs.
15 - 40+ lbs.
My daughter is 22 lbs and we have it on the second set of snaps and it has a great fit on her.
When I first opened my mail with the diaper, I was super excited to see such a beautiful diaper. And for me, I always wash my new diapers immediately because I can't wait to use them. I guess that is the cloth addict in me. HEHE.
As you may have noticed is the aplix (velcro-style, hook and loop, whichever you like best) looks a bit different, but it works the same. However, Ragababe chose to go with this design to use after 18 months of research and testing.
What I liked about the tabs and the velcro style is they never attached to other diapers and folder over neatly while washing and never curled after washed and dryed. Ragababe also has a trademark on these, 'Cross-over Stars' on the front which allows the wings to overlap for small waist babies. The RB '2-Step' has an additional white overlap strip on one side to make it even more sizable. We have the overlap strip, but have not ever had to use it.
The inserts are snapped in at the top and can be placed under the flap to make sure that the insert stays put. I have a wiggly worm daughter, she is all over the place, and the only thing that I have noticed and that is with any diaper that has snap in inserts, when she is moving around the insert doesn't stay where I want it to stay!
What is great about these diapers is that you can have a few covers and more inserts because if the insert is just soiled take the insert off and put a new insert on. Of course unless the cover is soiled then you would replace the cover.
Ragababe also has a Ragababe All in One and this diaper has so many prints to pick from and I must admit I'm jealous. I love the beautiful prints.
Overall this is a great diaper and works great for us in our home. We even love this diaper to use at night time. I have never had any leaks and feel comfortable with using this diaper. I would have to say the only thing about this diaper that is a little hard on us, is the cost. The only downfall for me on this diaper, is they are a bit higher cost wise than most diapers and I must say I won't be able to purchase them because they are too high for our budget. Which is a shame since my sitter actually prefers these, but I only have one. But this is a diaper I think is perfect for any momma to use and one you would want to have in your stash.
