Buttons Cloth Diaper Review

When you are first considering cloth diapering the available choices are overwhelming. There are several different basic styles and even more manufacturers to choose from. With this in mind I contacted Buttons cloth diapers to work together and bring this review to you today.


The Gemini Mama cloth diaper series

Buttons cloth diapers were created at home, by a husband and wife team, and are based in Northwest Washington. I received a one size diaper cover in apple. The diaper fits approximately any baby from 9-35 lbs. K2 is on the higher end of this and it fits him great!

It’s hard to get this guy to sit still.


The cover is very durable. It is thicker than the other covers we have at home. Because it felt so thick I tried it as an overnight diaper for the first time using it. Both of my children were super soakers when it came to night time diapering. Even before I switched to cloth, disposable diapers weren’t enough. We have gone through several different night time diapering solutions for both of my children. This being said, using this diaper as an overnight for the first try, was a huge test.


Well, it passed! The cover is very thick and durable as I mentioned. Paired with one large day time insert and one large night time doubler it worked great as an overnight. The nighttime doubler has 6 layers of microfiber, and the daytime insert has 4 layers of microfiber and soft fleece on top, which wicks away moisture. This also is the easiest night time solution that we have used.


My diaper arrived packaged beautifully. I completely understand why other mom’s get excited for their “fluff” to arrive. Look at that!



The inserts were very easy to prep. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the washing instructions are the same as our routine already. We use mostly prefolds, so I expected these diapers to have a more challenging wash routine.



If you have ever used a cloth diapers then you already know that most of the time snaps are better, and easier to use. If you have yet to diaper, just go with the snaps. I actually had all my hook and loop (velcro) diaper covers converted to snaps just before K2 arrived because they were more convenient.


With lot’s of snaps this cover will fit almost any baby, and they are easy to use.



The daytime insert has a fleece liner which will wick away moisture and baby will feel dry.


Double side gussets leave lots of room for leg movement with out a mess. K2 has no problems running, jumping, and playing in this diaper. Also, no leaking. None. Not one little bit. That is an important feature. Now that he is on the higher end of the weight scale I am finding that a few of our covers, aren’t covering it (haha).


Another fancy thing worth mentioning, the inserts snap in place.


They also snap together if you are doubling up.



For a long time I suggested that parents considering cloth keep a few All-in-ones on hand for those times, although few and far between, that you sneak out of the house. AIO’s are easier for people who do not diaper on the regular to figure out. They also go on and off exactly like a disposable diaper.


Well snap this baby together and it is just as easy to put on and take off! How great is that?



That means that you can wash your diapers and snap them together so that they are ready for you. On the changing table, or in the diaper bag. I would also imagine that care takers (such as day care) would be willing to work with these because they can be put together and ready to go.


You could also choose to put them together as you go. There aren’t rules to cloth diapering, which is great. That being said I will add that I have also used this cover with one of my “baby” sized prefolds, and it works just as well. The prefold is just slightly larger than the inserts, and fits into the cover great.


My little mover and shaker was difficult to capture on camera, but here is a shot of the back, so you can see the great fit.




  • thick cover
  • snap closures
  • inserts snap together and in place
  • diapers can be “ready to go”
  • super absorbent inserts
  • fun colors!
  • affordable


My Thoughts


Buttons diaper covers and inserts are very reasonably priced for the quality you are receiving. That makes them accessible to all parents considering cloth. With inserts that snap in place, and snap closures these diapers can be your whole diapering system. They are easy to use for parents, grandparents, and caregivers. Adding in that these diapers are extremely easy to clean and maintain they are a great choice for anyone considering cloth!
