custom turnaround times

just wanted to let everyone know that right now our custom turnaround time is really quick. less than a week for even large orders, so get your orders in. they'll likely have the same time as instock items!

also, i stocked the customs store with one size AIOs, both true all in ones and quick dry all in ones. you can choose to put prints on the outsides of the QDAIOs. i don't recommend it for the true all in ones, though, sometimes people do choose to have them.

right now there's a giveaway running over at the cloth diaper report for some cloth pads of mine. feel free to enter! also, if you haven't already, please sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of my shop page.

thanks!

they're here!





hi everyone!

i just got done listing 13 one size quick dry all in ones on etsy - both side and front snapping. these are made from the same pattern as our fitted pattern, so the fit is the same. the side snapping diapers are great because you can adjust the thigh and waist for a perfect fit. there are 5 rows of snaps on the wings of the side snapping diapers, allowing even the smallest of babies to have a snug fit.

here are some photos of how the side snapping diapers snap up and down for each size:

extra small:

medium:




large:




there are some great color combinations up right now. my personal fave is the yellow and grey. looove. you can also order your own color combinations from my store. if you have any questions or comments about our one size diapers, please feel free to contact me. thanks!

what people have been saying about our one size fitted diapers

one-size quick dry all in ones in both front and side snapping are coming to esbaby in a couple of weeks!

here are a couple of reviews on our one size fitted diapers, left on my site:

I have two of the one-size diaper, and I absolutely love them. I'm saving up to order a few custom one-sizes. I have one in teal and one an adorable owls print. I also love that I can choose to place the double in either the front or the back. And they're very absorbant, I've boldly gone coverless and haven't had a problem. They contain messes very well, and so far every mess has cleaned out perfectly, no stains! (and I've had lots of issues with stains on other diapers). Easy to maintain, easy to use, this is definitely our go-to diaper. Thanks!

WOW! I was lucky enough to win a beautiful "Fall Fruit Trees" print esbaby one-size fitted diaper, and I LOVE it!! It is incredibly beautiful and well-made! I can tell that it is going to last for a long time too as it has so many size options. My dd LOVES it too! She has already been asking to wear her tree dipe! The diaper is so squishy, soft, and incredibly absorbant! I would definitely add more of these to our stash! Just amazing!!! Thanks!


if you've purchased a one-size diaper or any other product from my store, i encourage you to leave some feed back on the product page, or on diaper pin. and please sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of my shop page. i send out monthly coupon codes for discounts and free shipping!

update on store stocking and a special donation!

hello everyone!

i know our instock store is looking a little sparse right now, but we've been so busy working on orders, we haven't had the chance to restock.

how to get a husband wetbag

i've been pretty bad at taking order pictures to post, but i'll definitely try to get some good pictures of the current orders we're working on.

next stocking will be sets in most sizes of our esbasic covers. priced as sets, these covers are cheaper than most covers in the market right now. same with our esbasic sets of diapers - including the one that's in my etsy store. they're even priced cheaper than kissaluvs! and the covers aren't just one layer of PUL. they're two layers of PUL, shiny side away from your baby, and are bound in colorful super-soft foldover elastic. we're still offering 2 small sets of three pick your color covers right now. they all come with a small pocket in the front - great for placing prefolds in.

esbasic small covers

if you haven't done so already, please sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of esbaby's custom store page. there's a box at the bottom that says 'newsletter sign-up'. just enter your address and click, and you'll be added to my database. i will be sending out some coupon codes in the near future for instock discounts. i'd like to clear out the store a little to make way for some new products. mostly our one size quick dry all in ones - side AND front snapping. and some new covers [how do we feel about gussets?]

lastly, but not least, esbaby is donating enough diapers and covers to a local program called "starting together" to help three local families cloth diaper their babies. we purchased snappis, infant and regular prefolds [45 pounds worth!] and enough covers to keep their babies in cloth from newborn to potty learning. i'm prepping the prefolds as i type this, and the diapers/covers will be ready to go out next month. esbaby is also donating some 2 size covers as well [a pattern i'm working on currently]. if you have any used diapers or covers that you'd like to part with, and want to send them this way, i would be more than happy to pass them on to starting together. please contact me at christine!@!esbaby.net for more info. for the next two weeks i am offering a special promotion - for every donation you send me, i will give you a free shipping code, good on instock and custom orders in my store. offer ends december 7th.they more cloth they receive, the better. that way, more families will be able to put their babies in cloth - saving them money, and our landfills from disposable diaper waste. don't worry if diapers need repairs - i can easily make repairs to diapers that need them.

starting together is a very important program to me. when i became pregnant with my daughter at the age of 18, i enrolled in the program. a family support worker started making weekly visits to my house, while i was pregnant to discuss what to expect when it came to childbirth, breastfeeding, etc. she was also very helpful in advocating for me when my daughter was born 5 weeks early and was in the NICU in syracuse, ny. she helped me make the contacts i needed to obtain a breast pump, and was there for me emotionally, which was extremely helpful being a young single mother. my family support worker visited me on a weekly basis until my daughter was three - and when i got pregnant with my son, i started seeing her again. through her i spread the word about cloth diapering, and when i worked as a chapter for miracle diapers, we were able to supply some families in the program with cloth. it felt great to give back to a program that helped me and my children so much. and i hope some of you out there will be willing to pass something along as well! [local moms- i will pick up any donations/ moms who i've given free diapers to in the past - it would be great if you could re-donate those diapers either back to me or another family in need please!]

thanks for reading and enjoy your thanksgiving week!

one-size diapers stocked!





just posted a bunch of one-size diapers in new prints, girl and boy alike!

we're still working on getting some one size quick dry all in ones out. i'm in the process of testing the side-snapping pattern, and the front snapping pattern is pretty much done with testing. we'll be releasing those soon.

if you haven't done so already, please go to my shop and sign up for my newsletter. the sign-up box is at the very bottom of the page. i send out coupon codes, shop updates and things of that nature on a bi-weekly/sometimes monthly basis [depending on how busy we are].

also, these diapers come with the additional snaps on the small soaker so that a doubler can be snapped into it. doublers are optional and cost $2. if you want to purchase a doubler for your small soaker, please email me or convo me on etsy. below is a picture of a small soaker with the 3 layer sherpa doubler snapped into it. also, if you place a custom order for a one-size diaper, the small soaker now comes with those snaps as well.

we're still here!

we've been pretty busy working on customs and a wholesale order, but hopefully we'll be getting the store stocked really soon. we're planning on getting a good batch of OS fitteds out. i'm also working on a one-size side snapping QDAIO pattern worked up. the pattern is drawn up, i just have to find the time to get a few made and get them to testers. then i hope we'll be able to release those soon as well. we're still open for customs, too!

here are a couple of photos of what we've been working on along with some NB set gift boxes.

one size quick dry all in ones


oh, OS QDAIOs. you like to give me problems. and a lot of them. right now we've been working very hard on getting a QDAIO OS pattern that is totally functional and looks great at the same time. well, we've managed to make it totally functional. the only problem we've been having is some wing roll, which is very slight, and doesn't happen on every baby, but still, happens sometimes. i think we're going to keep the pattern as is for now and work on a side snapping QDAIO OS. no wing roll worries, and honestly, i've always loved side snapping diapers better anyway. regardless, i had a local request to make 7 QDAIO OS diapers for a little boy. here are the pictures:







also, we're offering a doubler option for the small soaker in our one size diaper. it snaps into the small soaker. since the large soaker automatically comes with a doubler [the small soaker], i thought it'd be a good idea to offer the littler guys and girls some extra protection, too. so that's a small soaker with a 3 layer doubler snapped into the back of it. all small soakers will come with the snaps for the doubler, even if you don't order a doubler. that way, if you decide to order one in the future, you'll be able to add it easily. or, if you hand your diapers down and the next person wants to buy a doubler, they'd be able to without a problem.




we'll be adding some more cover sets to etsy very soon. newborn and medium. also, there are still some small cover sets left. you can double up on those and make it a 6 cover set, like the set that was listed before.


any questions, etc, please email me christine [!@] esbaby.net. we're still open for customs, too!

oh yeah, and i'm about to add some great new prints to my store. so keep an eye out here for updates!

esbasic covers, size small just listed

hi there!





i just listed some esbasic cover sets on etsy. they're a pretty good deal for those who want to add to their stash, or build their stash up for their new arrival. the set of 6 is for the entire rainbow [red, orange, yellow, green, blue, black - $60]. i also listed 3 "pick your own colors" sets of three covers for $30. with the 'pick your own colors' you get to choose from hot pink, baby pink, and baby blue as well.

i will be listing more in other sizes once i get them made up.

these are instock and ready to ship!

new OS diapers listed on etsy!

hi everyone!

i just listed some GREAT print one size fitted diapers on etsy. i'm totally in love with the joel dewberry deer prints, so i made sure to buy some in each colorway. if you see a print that you really love and want something else made from it, please email me. i'll be happy to do it as long as i have enough. i don't have a lot of these fabrics left, so first come first serve.





these diapers are made from cotton woven prints, so they'll fit slightly bigger through the legs and i've added a little length to the wings as well - make up for the lack of stretch in the print.

also, i've had a few custom orders this past week and i'm happy to say that with each custom over we've received, we've been able to cut and sew it in the SAME DAY and get it shipped the next day. that turnaround time is as fast as instock items, so don't hold back!

coming up next are some more newborn sets and likely some more one size fitteds. also, i'm currently testing a quick dry all in one, one size - if that turns out well, i'll be stocking those soon as well. below is a picture of the AIO one size.



thanks for reading!

doll diapers, cloth pads and diaper covers stocked!

hi everyone!

i just stocked some doll diapers, cloth diaper covers and cloth pads/cloth pad sets on etsy.









i will be stocking some great one-size print diapers very soon, so keep an eye out. the print OS diapers are slightly wider through the middle of the diaper and have slightly longer wings as well, to make up for the fact that woven print fabrics do not stretch.

custom turn around time right now is pretty quick. a week or less for most orders, so if you're thinking about placing a custom order, now is a great time to do it. also, if you've purchased diapers/etc from me before and are happy with your purchases, please leave me feedback on diaperpin. i'd really appreciate it!

thanks everyone!

esbaby one-size diapers are here!




after months of testing, we're finally ready to introduce our one-size fits most diaper! these fitted diapers are made with a knit outer, hidden layer of cotton sherpa and are topped with natural cotton velour. they come with two soakers: a small and a large soaker. when your baby outgrows the smaller settings, the small soaker can then be snapped into the larger soaker for great nap and night time protection. large soaker can be snapped into the front or the back of the diaper, depending on your preference. these can be purchased through my etsy store, or you can place a custom order for them through esbaby.net.

large setting:




below is a pictorial review of the one-size diaper. click on the pictures to make them bigger.







here is the webpage version of the pictorial seen above.


i suggest that you choose knit outers for these diapers, but i can make them with cotton woven prints, such as this cowboy boots diaper. be advised that it will not have the same amount of stretch as a knit outer, however i do add some length to the wings to compensate.

need cloth wipes?

i just listed a bunch of different sets of cloth wipes on etsy. my favorites are the bird seed set and the amy butler sets. i love how the pieced together print wipes turned out.

"hello, baby!" custom sets listed on etsy!

hello everyone!

i've had a few requests to do my "welcome home, baby!" sets in bigger sizes, so now is your chance to buy these reduced price sets. i am only going to offer a couple in each size, so get them while you can! [that link takes you to the mediums, but there are med long and larges in stock as well].

each set comes with 6 esbasic diapers and 3 lights out covers. esbasics are made of a white knit outer, hidden layer of sherpa, which is topped with natural cotton velour in the diaper body. the soaker is a 3 layer sherpa soaker that snaps into the diaper body for fast drying times and longer diaper life. lights out covers are composed of an outer colored layer of PUL and an inner layer of white PUL. all bound with white fold over elastic. snaps, thread and PUL colors are [as always] made to match the diapers.

you pick color scheme [gender neutral, boy, gir] and front or side snapping for the diapers and covers. i will choose what colors will go into the set. just let me know if there are any colors you want to avoid when ordering.

thanks!
