Our cloth diapering journey, twenty months in the making, has been varied and taken many turns. We’ve used flats and prefolds, pockets and fitteds, hybrid fitteds, all-in-ones (AIOs) and all-in-twos (AI2s). Pocket diapers were a very brief blip on our cloth diapering radar, as I just didn’t like stuffing them, or the fit on Declan, or trying to stuff multiple inserts for a heavy wetter — did I tell you that I really dislike stuffing pocket diapers? I am a huge fan of simplicity in cloth diapering (they’re just pee and poop catchers after all) and love using flats and prefolds with wool or PUL covers, but had to find a quicker way to diaper when my son hit the one year mark, as every diaper change was (and still is) a battle. I made the switch to using AIOs and AI2s, and find that I prefer using AI2s.
If you’re looking to add some AI2s to your cloth diaper stash, Buttons Diapers are a wonderful option.

If you like to shop family-run businesses, then Buttons Diapers are a great choice for you. Run by a husband and wife, Buttons Diapers were designed and created to be an easy, affordable option for cloth diapering families. With a beautiful selection of pastel covers and multiple insert sizes and absorbencies, Buttons Diapers are a great AI2 addition to your cloth diaper collection.
I received our review diaper in Pebble, a pretty muted grey that is a wonderful gender-neutral choice (I’m seeing more and more cloth diaper manufacturers offer grey). I’d love to add Tangerine and Lavender covers to our stash — I don’t pay attention to gender-assigned colors (we have a few pink and red diapers in our collection).

In addition to the pretty pastels, Buttons waterproof diaper shells feature a double leg gusset, perfect for preventing any leaks (a double gusset is a must-have when I choose covers).

In a nutshell:
- are an affordable AI2 cloth diapering system, fitting babies from 9-35lbs.
- come in a wide range of colors with plenty of gender neutral options
- are a business run by parents for parents
- I wish that there was a second snap row on the wings to prevent the sides from curling (see above photo)
- For those of you, like me, that have small babies, this system will not fit right from birth (my son was just over 8lbs. at 2 months old)
- Only two sizes of inserts to choose from (small & large) and only in microfiber (no natural fibers)
