Abby’s Lane was started in 2004 and after 6 1/2 years of being an online boutique, they now have a storefront in Manassas, Virginia. Stephanie, the owner and founder of Abby’s Lane started her cloth diapering journey in 2003 with her oldest daughter and has since cloth diapered three more children.
Something I LOVE about Abby’s Lane? When you purchase from Abby’s Lane, you are helping to support a team of 12 women who are able to work flexible schedules. Some of the women work exclusively from home, others work in the store and are able to bring their children to work with them! I applaud Stephanie for allowing her employees to do this and wish more employers were this understanding and allowed children to come to work!
Abby’s Lane offers great products including well known cloth diapering items such as: Babykicks, Blueberry, Bottombumpers, Bungenius, FuzziBunz, Knickernappies, Swaddlebees, Thirsties and more! They also offer FREE shipping on all US orders! That’s a big plus when I order from companies so I know you all will love that!
Stephanie from Abby’s Lane kindly sent me the Swaddlebees Newborn Simplex All in One diaper. You all know I am a huge fan of all in ones and I love that the inside of this diaper has pocket openings on both ends and the insert agitates out in the wash and can easily be tucked back in for wearing. You can also easily add inserts if you have a heavy wetter. The diaper inside is made from 100% cotton birdseye fabric and it fits babies between 6 and 16 pounds and has the important snap down feature for ensuring the umbilical cord is not covered. They also have some absolutely adorable prints! If you are looking for colors though they also have some great colors available. It is a snap diaper and does not have an aplix option.
Laundering this diaper is rather simple. We are able to wash it with the rest of our diapers, no need to remove inserts (remember, it automatically agitates out in the wash) and it is one of the fastest drying all in ones we have.
The fit is amazing! We started using cloth with Baby Addy when she was six days old. I was really happy that this diaper had the snap down feature so that her umbilical cord wasn’t covered. Baby Addy was about 7 lbs and 9 oz when we first put this diaper on her and it fit great! I can also see how this diaper fits up to 16 pounds too, which is important because I love getting my money’s worth when buying newborn diapers.
Baby Addy’s umbilical cord did fall off at 8 days and I didn’t take pictures before, however, this is the diaper with the snap down. You can clearly see how the diaper is snapped away from the cord for great fit even when baby is brand new!
This is the view from the side. It doesn’t have any leg openings for leaks and fits great all the way around! We used this diaper for 2-3 hours at a time and experienced no leaks what so ever. It worked great!
This is the photo of the diaper with the snap up since her umbilical cord had fallen off. You can see it still fits great and there is plenty of room for her to grow as it is on the smallest snap setting around her waist.
My Final Thoughts: We absolutely love this diaper! It fits great, has room for growing, doesn’t leak and comes in great prints! In fact, I love this diaper so much that after her wearing it and I saw how much I liked it I ordered more from Abby’s Lane!
