Buttons Diaper

Press Sample

A few weeks ago, I received a Buttons Diapers diaper cover (or shell) with snap-in inserts to try out with Little Miss.  diaper shells are made of two layers of wipeable PUL.  It has a double HOW-TO-webleg gussets and elastic at the back and waist to hold messes it.  It has three rise settings.  The wings do have a crossover setting, as well.

The inserts are made of four layers of micro fiber and topped with a soft layer of fleece.

The diaper is used by simply snapping the insert into the cover at both ends, after you’ve selected your rise setting.  You can double the insert to make it a nighttime diaper, and the top insert snaps into the bottom insert.

When the diaper is wet, simply unsnap the insert, wipe if necessary, and snap in a new insert.  If it’s soiled, of course you need to change the cover, too.

I chose the Pebble (grey) cover for Little Miss, because I thought it would be neutral enough to go with a variety of clothing.

I have to say, the snaps on the cover are some of the best snaps I have encountered in our cloth diapering journey.  They are so secure, that I sometimes I have trouble un-snapping them, both at the waist and the insert snaps.

The outer layer of the diaper, though PUL, is soft.

You can see the snap bump through the PUL on the back of the diaper from time to time, but I don’t care as long as it doesn’t make Little Miss uncomfortable, and it doesn’t.

We’ve had zero leaks and zero blow outs with the Buttons Diapers system.  We started using it when Little Miss was just under 9 pounds (pictured above) and though it was a bit bulky at the thigh, it did not leak.  She’s now close to 12 pounds and though we’ve moved out a snap on the wings, and are no longer crossing over, she has PLENTY of room to grow (pictured below).

It has stood the test of washing multiple times and is still in link new condition, although my ring did catch a little piece of the trim and snag a single thread.

The Diapers covers retail for $11 each and are available in blue (Blueberry), white (Snow), grey (Pebble), pink (Strawberry), and green (Sweet Pea).  The inserts are $3.50 for daytime inserts (small OR large) and $5 each for nighttime inserts (small OR large).

  1. Looks like an absolutely adorable diaper solution!

  2. Love covers that have a snap in front and back so that the cloth does not shift.

  3. How do these compare to Best Bottoms? The design is very similar. Can you use Best Bottom inserts in the Buttons Diapers?

  4. I would love to know the answer to Heather’s question! They do look really similar. Interesting. I love gray diapers 🙂 It looks great on her at 12 lbs!

  5. Rachel A. says:

    We have two of these and they work good for us. I like how soft the inserts are and the simplicity of the cover colors. We have pebble and blueberry. We have the night time inserts and they are very absorbent.

  6. These diapers sound like a really good option. I also like the really secure snaps. That is such a good idea for my little man who likes to take diapers off. An attractive and well designed diaper!

  7. elizabeth says:

    i would just love to try these diapers! love all the cute gender neutral options and it seems very affordable.

  8. A bit bulky but not too bad. I love this pebble color. It’s very difficult to find grey diapers.

  9. Lissa E. says:

    I have been eyeing the Pebble diaper for a while. I definitely prefer AI2 systems over AIO.

  10. Vanessa Coker says:

    I love that this diaper has the leg gussets. It’s a must for cloth diapering breast fed babies in my opinion.

  11. Chathurika Ginige says:

    I’m a big fan of the leg gussets and the snap in. They wash really well too.

  12. Jutta P. says:

    It seems like this would be a great inexpensive cloth diaper option. They don’t have an overwhelming amount of cover options, but I love the Pebble color.

  13. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    I love that the inserts snap into this cover and I love the leg gussets! My favorite color is the blueberry – I love it!!

  14. I like pebble and wish they had more color options that interested me! I like the idea of the wipe clean cover and will definitely try it!

  15. That is a really great price point! I hope they come out with some more colors though.

  16. I enter your giveaways all the time and am 21 weeks pregnant and planning cloth diaper. I was happy to see on buttons website you did a review so I could read a review from someone I “know”. lol
