“Shouldn’t diapers be as cute as the babies that are wearing them?” That was the question that led Margarita to design her new line of fashion-forward Blueberry Diapers. With diapers being such a large part of a baby’s daily wear, they should delight the eye as well as comfort baby’s bottom. The ease, convenience and fashionable look of Blueberry Diapers have caught the attention of mothers all across the country and around the world. So much so that she can hardly keep up with the demand.
More and more moms and dads are disposing of their reliance on disposable diapers and changing to reusable cloth diapers for many reasons. Ecology, economy and safety are high among them.
Changing diapers to cloth reusable can save the average family as much as ,500 over the course of their child’s diapering years. Health issues are equally as important when it comes to disposables. Their liners contain sodium polyacrylate, the same substance that was removed from tampons in 1985. It is still present in disposable diapers and that can be a serious health issue when you consider that these diapers are in contact with a baby’s sensitive skin all day and all night.
The environment also suffers from contact with disposable diapers. 27.4 billion are used and discarded each year. They make up the third largest source of solid waste in landfills and can take up to 500 years to decompose.
Having addressed all those issues with the creation of her parent company Swaddlebees, including the use of organic cotton in the diapers, Margarita turned her designer’s eye to making her cloth diapers full of fun and whimsy.
Blueberry diapers come in a wide range of exciting upbeat colors and patterns. They even come in chic animal prints like zebra, cheetah and pink Dalmatian. All in all, there are over 32 designer colors and prints to choose from. That’s one diaper design for every day of the month!
What Makes Our Diapers Special ?
Whether it's Swaddlebees or Blueberry diapers, we put just as much care and effort in creating clean diapers the same way you would in making a meal for people you love--you start with the best ingredients.
Whenever possible, we source our fabrics from the USA. This not only ensures us that the fabric is manufactured without any possible contaminants that may prove harmful to infants, but we have also found that the quality is more consistent and surpasses that of its imported counterparts. Using US-made fabrics also helps keep the textile manufacturing industry alive in the US.
The cotton used to make our organic cotton fabrics is sourced from the US as much as possible. When supply is low, it is sourced from Turkey. But no matter where the cotton comes from , the fabric is still milled in the US.
The microfleece we use has a special weave that makes it 95% less susceptible to detergent build-up that causes repelling and leaking issues to cloth diapers made with a polyester wicking layer. It is 3 times more expensive than imported microfleece or suedecloth, but performance is our main priority and is something we feel must not be compromised.
Even the polyester knit used to make our laminated fabrics are all made in the US. We design most of our prints and have them printed at a local fabric printing facility that strives to maintain a sustainable and environmentally-friendly operation by using aquaeous dyes instead of oil-based dyes, and reusing and recycling majority of the raw materials used in their operation.
We use latex-free elastics exclusively on all our diapering products. Again, this type of elastic costs 3 times more than your typical polybraid or knitted elastic, but using latex-free elastic ensures us that the possibility of babies getting an allergic reaction with sensitivity to latex is greatly reduced, if not eliminated. And just like most of the fabrics we use, our latex-free elastic are made in the USA as well.
Our products are carefully manufactured in a professionally-run equal-opportunity facility in the US where seamstresses and workers are paid an average of -12/hour, treated with respect, allowed sufficient time off to enjoy life and be with their families.
We pride ourselves in having one of the most anatomically-correct diapers available. Simply put, our diapers fit great. No sagging, bunching or stuff sticking out. We carefully design our diapers to conform to the unique shape of babies to ensure the best fit, comfort and function. We believe diapers aren't just waste-catchers, they're a fashion statement. So they have to look the part and fit well.
