Giveaway and Review: Barrel and a Heap Diaper Cover



When I first saw the diaper covers from Barrel and a Heap on etsy, I knew I had to get my hands on one for Ella's delicious little cloth diapered tushie. I used to be a pocket lover and while I still like them, I've discovered the joy that are prefolds and fitteds as well as the many adorable diaper covers. I have many different types of covers from Thirsties to Wee Huggers and I think I can honestly say that this cover is my favorite. There were sooo many different prints to choose from. I didn't even know PUL came in all these different fabulous prints! I originally got an owl print to go with a shirt I had just bought Ella...or did I buy the shirt after I picked out the owl cover? I can't remember, but either way, it was so adorable. When it came, it was even more cute in person than it was online. I put it on her butt and used it with both a GMD (green mountain diaper) workhorse fitted and a prefold. It was so trim and fit so nicely! Even with the prefold it was trim and Ella seemed very comfortable in it. After using the cover once, there was a very minor flaw in it and when I spoke to Carissa, she immediately sent me a new cover. This one was just as cute, trim and lightweight. The customer service from Carissa (owner of Barrel and a Heap) was outstanding. She was prompt and kind and obviously cares a great deal about the product she gave out. Her covers are, in my humble, 2.5 years of cloth diapers on 2 babies opinion, superior to many of the big name covers out there. They are not plasticy but light weight and they hold it all in. They're trim, well fitting and adorable. It's hard for me to resist buying all the covers she has in her shop! They're also very true to size. Ella is 23 pounds and I got a medium. Fits her like a dream and I can tell with the snaps that it will fit her for a while.

So, all in all, I give this cover a 5 out of 5. I would highly recommed it to anyone. Oh and did I mention? Her prices are fantastic as well. ;-)

  2. I want a free cloth diaper because I have 3 kids, two still in diapers, and all three at night. I am JUST NOW getting into cloth diapers after refusing to consider them years ago. I have evolved into the mom I am now and would love help increasing my diaper supply. Thanks!
