Abby’s Lane~BumGenius 4.0 Review & Giveaway! *CLOSED*

Abby’s Lane: A Cloth Diapering Store and More!

I first came across Abby’s Lane while perusing other blogs for some good diaper reviews.  As I read a review on Abby’s Lane on two magical words caught my eye “FREE Shipping”.  Free or discounted shipping is so hard to come across in the small online retail shops, particularly cloth diapering shops.  Abby’s Lane offers Free Shipping on all US orders (no minimum!).  I made my first purchase that very day!

Here is a little about Abby’s Lane from owner Stephanie Daniel:

Hello! Welcome to Abby’s Lane, a unique boutique offering products to make your parenting experience enjoyable and a little closer to nature.  I am Stephanie, owner and founder of Abby’s Lane, which opened in September of 2004, we are currently located in Northern Virginia. My husband, Phillip, and I are proud parents to our 3 beautiful daughters and one little son.
Our cloth diaper journey began when Abby was 3 months old, Camille, Lucy and Sebastian have been cloth diapered from birth. I was a reluctant participant at first, I believed the myth that cloth diapering is messy, messy, and…well…messy! I assure you that is entirely false! Cloth diapering has been the most wonderful experience, and if my husband is an advocate, anyone can do it! The products I carry at Abby’s Lane are carefully chosen to make your cloth diapering experience an easy and enjoyable one.
Stephanie Daniel

One of the wonders of Abby’s Lane is the phenomenal customer service.  Have a question?  Stephanie is on it!  Something is not right with your order, Stephanie will email you immediately.  Anytime I’ve emailed Abby’s Lane I’ve received a response in fewer than 24 hours.  Another thing that astounds me about Abby’s Lane is their selection.  Abby’s Lane selection is really something you’ll have to see to believe.  They carry anything a cloth diapering mama could need and more.  For those mamas who don’t cloth diaper Abby’s Lane has a wonderful selection of baby slings, baby legwarmers, shoes, and more!

As part of my review Stephanie sent me a BumGenius 4.0 to review.  This is the very first one-size diaper I’ve tried.  I’ve always been a little hesitant about one-size diapers because I’m all about the trim fit.  After using the diaper I’ll say that this is definitely our bulkiest diaper.  Having said that I will also say that if anything will make The Husband a complete convert to cloth it might just be the one-size pocket diaper.  He is all about ease, efficiency, and economy.  The BumGenius 4.0 scores high in all three of those.  They are super easy to stuff, quick to put on (this is very important for the daddies who have less practice at diaper changes than the mommies), and, at only $17.95 for a diaper that will last approx. from birth to potty training, are a great deal.

The BumGenius was also a perfect nighttime diaper for us.  The diaper comes with a one-size snap-down insert and a newborn insert/doubler (another part of the great value).  Because Little Brother’s bum has proven extremely sensitive I add an addition layer of microfleece to the diaper at night and in the morning the diaper is filled, but his bum is still dry.

One thing I have to add about the new BumGenius colors is that they are super light–much lighter than they look in the pictures.  The diaper Little Brother has on, “Sweet”, is the same diaper that is shown above.

The diaper even accommodates that BIG BELLY
