When I was searching for an overnight solution, I contacted the nice people at DryBees and inquired about their Fleece Night Time Pocket Diapers. We're big fans of the DryBees Hybrid AIO's, so I knew that the fleece diapers would be a great overnight solution. Drybees was kind enough to send me one to try out.

The first night I double stuffed the diaper, put my son to bed, and crossed my fingers. When he woke up 9 hours (!!!) later, he was completely dry! No leaks! Ever since, I have been using my double stuffed bumGenius diapers at night with no issues. And no more disposables overnight! These diapers are truly a great solution, especially for overnight. Check out the great features:
- Easy to use. The aplix closure resembles disposable diapers, which makes it easy for dads and babysitters.
- Comes with two inserts so you can customize absorbency
- Microsuede liner keeps baby's bottom dry (great feature for overnight!)
- One size diaper, which allows the diaper to grow with the baby (Manufacturer says it will fit up to 35 lbs)
- bumGenius aplix and leg elastic has been known to wear down over use. Would be nice to have a snap option.
- Microfiber inserts have been known to cause stink. Inserts might need often stripping.
When I was looking for a reputable place online to order these diapers, I checked in with my friend Ali over at Green Chic Mama. She started her business in May of 2009 when she started using cloth diapers and organic products on her son, but was disappointed with not having a good in-person store to shop at. She calls it "Grren Chic Mama" because she's green, yet also chic. She operates on the belief that you don't have to be "earthy dirty looking"... you can wear high heels and lipstick, and still help our children and the environment. She opened her store both online and in person. In addition to her website, she also offers classes and hands-on shopping. She has phenomenal customer service, too. When you shop at Green Chic Mama online, you are made to feel like you are physically in her store.
Green Chic Mama also carries natural skin care products that are made by work at home moms. You can be assured that all products are eco friendly and natural. Because they are a new store, they carry a limited line of products, although they are growing with the goal of carrying all of your favorite cloth diapering brands. As of right now, she carries only brands that she personally uses and recommends to others. She believes in the theory that it is easier to sell a product when you believe in it.
Green Chic Mama carries the bumGenius 3.0 pocket diapers, as well as many other popular cloth diapering brands and accessories.
Green Chic Mama is also unique in that she offers 10% off first orders as well as free shipping on orders over $75! Not too many stores offer BOTH!
Green Chic Mama is generiously offering one of my readers a chance to win a bumGenius 3.0 pocket diaper (limited to in store stock)!
She's also offering a $10 gift card to a second winner!! How cool is that?!
