Dreaming In Cotton Cloth Diaper Review

Dreaming in Cotton Review


As part of So Sew Mama's, Mama Love event (June 12-24) I had the opportunity to review one of the adorable diapers made by Samantha. She was such a pleasure to work with. Dreaming in Cotton has quality products at great prices. 

Samantha sent us the Argyle hearts pocket diaper to review. 

 Isn't it adorable? Could you believe that she is selling it for just $18.00?


Diaper Features:

  • Pocket diaper
  • One-size, fits 7-35 lbs.
  • hidden PUL 
  • Stretchy Knit outer layer
  • Microfleece lining
  • Four rows of adjustment snaps to allow for a small/medium/large size in one diaper
  • Hip snaps to prevent the sides from drooping
  • Double back elastics to help prevent blow outs


Double rows of snaps for proper placement. I love diapers that have hip snaps. This is a huge deal for squirmy babies and toddlers. 

This is also a very extendable diaper. It could fit babies over 35 lbs.

It is approximately 15.5 inches long, without being stretched at all. That is at the largest setting. (not stretched)

The Crotch area measured at 6.5 inches.

With a Wing span of 12 inches. 


Our Microfleece lining. It is super soft. I love that she prewashes. 


Double elastic pocket opening. It is a pretty wide pocket. I have no issue sticking my hand in. Also, you do not HAVE to take the dirty insert out by hand. It will agitate out in the wash. In most cases. 



Close up of the four rise snap settings. I do not think I own any diapers with a four rise snap. I do believe that this makes it possible to fit bigger babies. I'm not sure if the crotch part would be wide enough. But I do not make big babies. Baby a is about 17 lbs and we are on the second setting. She is also about 26 inches tall. 

Samantha's diapers do not come with inserts. But she does make them. Insert consists of 3 inner layers of microfiber and 2 outer layers of fleece. You can choose between a chocolate or light pink fleece outer. 
Approximately 14.5" in length and 4.5" in width. I was able to use just this insert for nap time and it held up great. No leaks. Some of my other hidden PUL diapers leak, so this is awesome. I also love that the microfiber is under the fleece. This way I can use this insert with flats, or whatever else. What is more, they are only $3.00.
Baby a has started solids. She now eats everything and everything. Yeah, so fun. Not when it comes out the other end. We have had some really huge messy blow outs. I am so glad to say that potential blow outs did not happen with this diaper. The fit is superb! It definitely stood up to the ultimate test. 8 month old eating everything. 


She is a cutie though.

If you are a cloth addict, like I am, you should definitely go purchase a diaper from Samantha. She also makes wipes and inserts!

  3. Cloth diapers have come such a long way since I used them with my oldest son - he's almost 12 now! Stopping by from Divas With A Purpose and wanted to thank you for your participation in our first Bloggers Party! I hope you met some new friends throughout the week! Winners from the prizes will be announced by the end of the weekend :)

  5. It is amazing how cloth diapers have changed. I had heard of some of these-types of diapers but they were very expensive so we stuck with the regular ones - the prices you are showing are not too expensive and the insert prices are very good. Thanks for the review - I will be checking out her etsy page.

    1. Some can be quite expensive! But that is if you are going for a really adorable diaper. We also use flats. It isn't modern, but it works. It also saves a lot of money. One child being diapered from birth to age 3 can rack up a huge bill with diapers. That is thousands of dollars on disposables. Or just around $300 for cloth! It is worth it. That is just my opinion.
