Pants that fit just right: Boodle Bottoms Review and Giveaway

It's a common issue for cloth diapering moms - finding pants that fit over bulky cloth diapers.  If you are like me, dressing your child often includes a bit of a shimmy shake to get the pants up over the fluff.  So when I stumbled upon Boodle Bottoms I had to try them.  Boodle Bottoms are pants designed to fit over cloth diapers!


 Boodle Bottoms use organic materials and eco-friendly tags and shipping materials.  The pants are made from a very soft organic cotton/bamboo knit, and as a seamstress myself, I can tell you the workmanship is top-notch.  These pants are the highest quality baby clothing I've encounteredPlus coming from a small, home-based business you can trust you are getting a truly green product.  I chose the pink pants for Sydney, and they are a lovely soft pink that works with lots of her tops.  The photos don't do it justice.

The pants feature a panel like back that allows for extra room to accommodate bulky diapers without looking puffy.  The panel allows for the pants to fit true to size, although Sydney still wore a larger size due to her height and weight.  Boodle Bottoms offers a sizing chart to easily choose the correct size for your little one.  The fabric seems thinner than other knits, but it is important to keep in mind that bamboo naturally insulates, keeping baby's body temperature constant.

And because I know you are dying to know, Boodle Bottoms does plan to add jeans to their line-up soon!  A pair of jeans that you don't have to squeeze over a cloth diaper?  Yes please!

So ready for a chance to win your own pair of Boodle Bottoms?  Enter below.  Giveaway ends on November 8, 2010 at noon CST.
