In One End, Out The Other, Cotton Booty Box for August

Fluffy mail today made my day! 

This month's box is In One End, Out The Other.  After seeing online that my detergent has had a formula change, I needed a pick me up, and this was it. 

The Fluffy mail package!
This box contained a diaper, Bumgenius 4.0 in Maathai, a sample of Bumgenius detergent (eerie timing on that one), and a set of Green Toys, plate, fork and spoon. 

Such a cute way to package the items!!
First let's look at the BG 4.0.  This will be my first BG pocket diaper. I washed it right away so we could have some action shots! 

 It came in an adorable print Maathai, from the Genius series.  It comes with an envelope pocket opening and two microfiber inserts, infant and regular inserts.  The neat thing about the BG large insert is that it snaps down to fit the diaper when it is sized down for smaller babies!  You can use one insert or both together for added protection.

 The diaper was super easy to stuff and adjust using the snaps on the front to fit my daughter. 

The sample of BG detergent couldn't have come at a better time.  My detergent had a formula change and if my kids react to the new formulation, I'll be playing the game of find a new cloth diaper detergent. 

BG partnered with Country Save, a well recognized cloth diapering detergent.  Many people use and love it!  It is free of dyes, fragrances, optical brighteners, enzymes and phosphates.  It is HE certified as well!  This package is good for one load of laundry, so I cannot wait to try it out.

Finally we get to the Green Toys plate, fork, and spoon.  These toys are made in California from post-consumer milk jugs.  They are BPA, phthalate, and pvc free!  This is part of a new line of eco-friendly products for our children and they meet the FDA standards for food contact, and are also dishwasher safe. 

All in all, I am very pleased with this month's box!  I cannot wait to see what is in store next month with the Good Night, Sleep Tight box!  It is the highest value box yet!  If you haven't signed up to receive Cotton Booty Boxes, You can use my link to sign up and receive $5 off your first box!
