Mabu Baby Eco-Diaper System was developed by Mabu Naturals International Inc. Mabu are not only people with babies, children and grandchildren, but they are also designers and creative product developers. Their aim is to take washable diapers out of niche markets and make them affordable and accessible to everyone.
I’m the kind of girl who loves options. Options when it comes to my clothes, options when it comes to my meals and options when it comes to my son’s cloth diapers. With the Mabu Baby eco-diaper system you can choose whether or not to use a reusable or disposable insert.
Right now Carter is taking in breastmilk so his diapers are not that bad, so I have no problem using the reusable insert. I love how absorbent it is and that it’s “doubled up”. When I say doubled up, I mean that the fabric is folded in half to give you extra protection and the folded design allows the inserts to dry quicker. This insert is made of a new eco-polyster that is developed by Mabu called EcoWix. EcoWix is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and enhanced with natural bamboo white charcoal. It wicks away wetness and keeps your baby dry.
I have hard horror stories about baby’s diapers when they start eating solids, and when they are off breastmilk their dirty diapers are no longer water soluble. What that means is, you can’t just toss it in the wash anymore, you have to go the extra step and shake it in the toilet and even soak it. This is when the disposable inserts are more beneficial. That way, when you change your baby you can just put the diaper over a garbage and shake out the insert completely (a reminder to throw it out, never flush it as it can cause blocked plumbing). Less laundry and it’s a lot more daddy friendly. Another option, that I just learned about, is with the disposable liners. With the liners you can use them to wrap around the insert to make clean ups easy and still the the full absorption benefit as the reusable liner.
I am loving the Mabu Baby starter kits because they give you options. Each kit contains:
2 diaper covers)
2 snap-in pad holders,
2 washable diaper pads plus
2 disposable diaper pads and
This way you get the best of both worlds and can figure out what works the best for you and your baby. There are four sizes for you to choose from: newborn (4-11 pounds), 1 (6-13 pounds), 2 (9-20 pounds), 3/4 (15-40 pounds).
I’m really enjoying my Mabu Baby newborn diapers, I’m thankful that I have another set of diapers that Carter can wear right no win his preemie stage (disposables give him an awful rash). The diapers have never leaked and seem to contain the majority of the mess on the reusable pad (I have had poop smear onto the cover, which is not the end of the world). These diapers wash easy and are very user friendly.
Another product I was sent was the Mabu Duzi Cloths. I love these cloths and they have changed the way I have cleaned, I decreased my use of paper towels and have gone “green”. When you first receive them they are stiff because they are treated with a vegetable based starch, just toss them in the wash and they become incredibly soft and ready to be used. So what’s the different between the Duzi’s and regular cloths? They rinse out 99% of the bacteria so they’re completely reusable right away. I love them and I think every house should have one, two or three.
