I took on the overwhelming task of rounding up the cloth diaper sales this past Earth Day, and I said I'd never do it again.

But Black Friday is here, and it is the biggest sale of the year in the cloth community, so I wanted to share the deals on my favorite products.

This post contains some affiliate links. If you click through and make a purchase, I may receive a commission for my referral, at no extra cost to you. Affiliate sales help keep the light on for this blog, and allow me to test new brands and products to share with you, so I appreciate this support, a lot.

I won't be buying anything (well...maybe), but if I needed anything, these are the sales I would take advantage of:

1. Spray Pal Sprayer and Shield: I bought mine last Black Friday, and it has been a major game-changer for me. This is THE time to buy, when you can get such a good deal on them. Spray Pal is 20% off at Diaper Junction (they carry the shield only).
This is a not an affiliate, but I recommend keeping an eye on Spray Pal themselves to get the best deal- they did some pretty good door busters last year, including a free shield with the purchase of a sprayer (which was also discounted), so hopefully they will again!

You can see my review on my sprayer and shield here.

2. Wipes: These are one of my absolute FAVORITE cloth diaper accessories. If you want 'em, but you don't got 'em, now is a good time to buy. Love Thirsties, which are on sale for 20% off , and Grovia, which are also on sale for 20% off.

3. Not Just Butts: Well, I of course, need to mention that I am running a sale on my own website. Not Just Butts is 15% off- with a free coffee lip balm (while supplies last, but they will)- and ALWAYS free shipping. It is an amazing cloth diaper- safe cream to use for everything from rashes, to irritated-from-wiping-noses.

This coffee lip balm sample is a tester for a new product I will be offering next year. I am SO excited about it, because it is SO good. It has real coffee infused in it, so it has a real, wonderful coffee aroma. I freak out a little every time I use it because I love it so much.

4. Newborn Diapers: If you're expecting, and want to cloth diaper a newborn, PLEASE do yourself a favor and buy now, when prices are this low. I absolutely cannot gain any commission from these referrals, but they are my strongest recommendations- my favorite newborn covers by Luludew are 15% off, and THE prefolds I recommend from Green Mountain Diapers are also 10% (+5% bundle discount if by the dozen) off!

5. Overnight Diapers: They're expensive, they're not "fun" to buy, so get them when price is sweetened just a bit. Overnight favorites like the Grovia ONE, Thirsties fitted with a Sloomb- wool cover, Diaper Rite AIO, Smart Bottom Dream plus the soaker... all on sale.

6. Wet Bags/ Pail Liners: I know some people really enjoy stocking up on wet bags, but this is always a hard purchase for me. They're a great item to cart if you need to make any kind of price minimum. I love Planet Wise (up to 50% off at Nicki's), and have fallen for Buttons. You can't beat Smart Bottoms' prints, though, man. Every brand of wet bags I know of is discounted, and I need them, so this is actually the one thing I may buy this year...if I don't score Pandamonium.


Note on Pandamonium:
This is a LIMITED, LIMITED edition Thirsties print, only available THIS weekend.
As of this posting, it is still in stock for 30% OFF here at Nicki's Diapers, and here at Kelly's Closet.

Most retailers have the same discounts across brands, but have different door busters, freebies, and extra points running this weekend.
These are the sale pages for my affiliate retailers:
I hope you enjoy your weekend, and are able to take advantage of the amazing sales that are happening!

Buttons Diapers fans that were around this past Spring knew they were coming...

Cloth trainers are finally HERE!

I was lucky enough to get to test them out before they were released, and oh.my.gosh.
I am seriously blown away with how many features they were able to put on this one cloth trainer to make it SO amazing!
So, here we go:

Features:
Buttons had asked the fans in their official Facebook group about what features were a MUST for cloth trainers.
And did they listen!

These are a one-size cloth trainer.
They have two sets of rise snaps to adjust the height, and three sets of waist snaps to adjust the waist.
The waist snaps also mean the trainer can be snapped off in case of an accident.

They fit approximately 15-35+ lbs, according to Buttons.

There is a built-in cotton/bamboo soaker, to absorb any accidents.
The inside of these trainers is lined with an athletic jersey mesh.

Oh, AND they have a pocket for adding extra absorbency for when you need more assurance, like overnight, naptime, or leaving the house.

They retail for $15 for solids, and $15.75 for prints.
The HUGE bonus is that these double as swim diapers!

Check, check, check, CHECK.

What I LOVE:
Can I say everything?
They really listened and included the features that were most important to me, personally: waist snaps and built-in absorbency.

The built-in soaker is absorbent enough to catch a pee.

OH WAIT, did I forget to mention Buttons is also now selling 100% cotton boosters?

If you read my post on cloth diaper fabrics, you would know how much I absolutely love cotton for everything. These little boosters are so soft and absorbent.
They are being sold in packs of two for $10.

The boosters go perfectly in the little pocket of the trainer.

The fact that this built-in absorbency is a natural fiber just makes my heart sing.
I love you, cotton.

I also think the price point is right on.
I was hoping Buttons would be able to offer their trainers at an affordable price, and they really came through with that.

These are awesome as swim diapers, too. I love to have the little bit of absorbency in swims to catch any accidents on the way to the pool.

Here is the fit on my 29-lb three-year-old (wears size 3T), and 24-lb twenty-four-month-old (wears size 24M):

Fit on my little 12-lb three-month-old (wears size 6M). He obviously will not be potty-learning any time soon, but babies this age might be hanging at the pool or beach and need a swim diaper:

Ignore the socks. It's winter in Minnesota.

I'm seriously obsessed.
The elastic is so stretchy, and they seem so comfortable.

Will I try to add absorbency so I can wear them as normal diapers? Probably.

What I Don't Love:
Though easy to pull DOWN, the one down-side to me is that my toddler struggles to pull them back up himself. We have this issue with every cloth trainer we've tried, though.
And any pants with a wide waist band, honestly.
They're just more thick and snug than disposables (and underwear), so I think that comes with the territory of choosing cloth.

I'll always be annoying and complain about dry time, too, if they won't dry completely in one cycle.

Sorry. I'm impatient.

Overall
I love these trainers/swims. I think they're an amazing contribution to the cloth diaper community.
I highly recommend picking up a few pairs for your toilet-learning toddler.

I also like to think that I helped with the design, so how I could I NOT love them?
They are everything I want in a training pant.

I highly, highly recommend giving them a try if you are in the market for trainers.

Where To Buy
Buttons trainers are currently available exclusively through Buttons' website.

The cotton boosters (and incidentally, some amazing herbal diaper cream I happen to make) can be found under their accessories.

I hope you love them as much as I do!
