LOVING the blueberries . . .

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
The Bluberry Diapers that is!

I was intrigued by the Minky idea because baby ds is sensitive to PUL. He gets a rash on his thighs (so outside the diaper) from the PUL rubbing against his chub (he's quite chubby). It chaps his skin. So he's been in wool for a few months, and he does great in it. But wool is just too bulky under pants for me, and ds was becoming very difficult to diaper (I was pinning flats under the wool, and now that he's crawling it was starting to feel a bit dangerous), and so I was really wishing I could put him in some pockets . . .

. . . And along came the blueberry minky side-snapping pockets. Hooray! They fit ds perfectly (he's in a medium at 21ish pounds and 8 months (and chubby)), and they're SO SOFT. Definitely no worries of his legs getting rashy from these! My four-year-olds keep petting the baby's bum and saying, "oh, wow, mom. This is a *really* soft diaper!" And no leaks or anything like that either. The minky is totally trim enough to fit under any pants, and I love the colors for when ds is pantsless.

I really like the fit of the swaddlebees side-snapping pockets as well, but these new blueberries will work for a wider range of babies (the trimness of the swaddlebees seems not to work for many) because they are less trim through the crotch.

The sale is still on if you want to try a few!

You don't need to put in a code. The discount will automatically apply as soon as you have three items in your cart.

We love them, too! So soft.
The diapers shipped quickly, they are beautiful and great, trendy prints. And I love the minkee! I even bought DD a trainer b/c they're so cute and she's only 15 mos and we're not potty training.

must con-trol...my-self....

I just ordered two wonderful wool covers, I CAN NOT buy another diaper, but oh my I have been looking at minky's for months now! (since before babe was born!)

These diapers are AWESOME!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine (well... my DD's ). I bought four side-snapping minky pockets and two covers while the sale was still going on.

I thought I would never see myself buying them at regular price but I don't know now! I'm hooked. I want to try the stuffable all-in-ones now.

Has the sale ended? I couldn't see what it was/is on their site.
post #12 of 31
The sale ended Tuesday. We had never even heard of these but a friend clued us in on the sale and we ended up getting our entire stash from Blueberry! We got 18 of the Minky OS and 9 of the deluxe hook/loop OS. With the sale, it was totally worth it! I'm completely in love and already want to buy more, but I guess I'll *try* to wait for another sale of some sort!

We used our first minky os today, DS actually asked for it then let me change his diaper, AMAZING. Then he walked around the house stroking his crotch saying soft The diaper held for 3hr no leaks, fits great on his gigantic thighs, the only bad thing...the price. There is NO WAY I will ever be able to buy these at full price, they are way too expensive!

I really love them too! I picked up 9 ss minky's during the sale. dd insists on rubbing them on her cheeks.. LOL
post #15 of 31
how much were they are sale for?
post #16 of 31
They were on sale for buy two get one free throughout the month of July. It was an awesome deal considering how much they are regularly priced. I bought 6 and I also only paid 2.00 for shipping.

So tell me more about these! The minky and prints are just awesome! But how's the fit? I have skinny babies and adore super trim dipes like VB AIOs and Swaddlebees pockets, etc. How do these compare? They don't honestly look very trim to me, but perhaps it's the softness and cuteness factor that wins over?

Ooh, I see you're in Houston! Perhaps we can just meet up and I can pet your Blueberry dipes! It's been WAY too long since there was a Houston cloth get together, I gotta say!

They are not as trim as swaddlebees (and I've never tried a Very Baby), but they're trimmer than theylook in the photos. The inserts that come with them aren't particularly trim, but I've been using other inserts. They are low-rise, and probably in-between a swaddlebees pocket and a fuzzi bunz pocket between the legs. I consider them to be trim. They do run a bit smaller than the swaddlebees, but my ds is in a medium of both brands (and he's 22ish pounds at 9 months).

And definitely SOFT and CUTE!

HTH!

I just ordered two and a wetbag. I can't wait to get them! The jewel toned colored ones remind me a lot of the jamtots berryplush (in looks). I'm hoping they are trimmer than the BP because as much as I love those, they are very bulky.
