Mama & Maker Review and GIVEAWAY! **CLOSED

I was very excited to work with Mama & Maker, a wonderful WAHM.  I had the opportunity to try out an AI2 diaper.  First, a little info about the product reviewed:

Her AI2s are sized, side snapping dipes with a snap-in soaker.  The soakers are extra long so that they can be folded over for extra absorbency in the wetzone.  The soaker is made from 2 layers of zorb II (each Zorb II layer is equal to 2 layers microfiber).  Zorb II is regular Zorb sandwiched/quilted between two layers of soft cotton/bamboo.

Although the fabrics have been prewashed, I washed the diaper three times before trying it out to make sure it was fully prepped/absorbent.  We don't own any side snapping diapers, and I was amazed at how trim fitting it was!  It seemed like it was custom made for little man.  You can see from this picture how trim it is:
 The double row of snaps prevents wing drooping, and there are four spots to snap so you can get the perfect fit for your little one.

I folded the super quilty soft soaker so there was extra absorbency in the front (since he's a boy). He played and played and played (he is one BUSY boy), and we had absolutely no leaking. Woohoo!

 He fell asleep nursing, and ended up sleeping for close to THREE HOURS with the dipe on!  I am extremely paranoid about which diapers he wears to sleep, so normally I would not let him sleep in a diaper we are just trying out.  Much to my surprise he woke up completely dry!  Holy absorbency, batman!

Aside from having leak proof, trim fitting diapers...her fabric choices are terrific.  Check out this Cat in the Hat this cute or what?!
