CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ MiniMaestro™ Diapers Review & Giveaway!!

 

 

 

Min­i­Mae­stro™ was born when a mother, Sophie Grat­ton, was hav­ing a dif­fi­cult time find­ing dia­pers that fit all of her cri­te­ria. This mommy of 2 chil­dren wanted to find dia­pers that were green and didn’t want any­thing to do with the reg­u­lar plas­tic ones that would sit in the land­fill for years to come. After lots of research, Sophie was extremely sur­prised to find out that day after day, in Canada only, we were fill­ing up land­fills with a huge amount of dis­pos­able dia­pers; in fact, more than 4,5 mil­lions per day!

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.

The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife. There­fore, Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­pers is def­i­nitely the way to go for any new parents!!

 

 

 

 

Min­i­Mae­stro™ car­ries a sized pocket dia­per in 5 dif­fer­ent sizes in an exten­sive array of 12 funky colours.  I received a size medium Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­per in the colour pink to review. Since they are a sized dia­per you don’t have to worry about the snaps to fig­ure out the rise and in fact, you don’t have to worry about snaps at all.  Instead of snap­ping the wings around your baby’s waist, you use the Vel­cro tabs.  There is a wide band across the waist that allows you to get the best fit pos­si­ble for your baby.  There are laun­dry tabs so the Vel­cro doesn’t attach to every­thing dur­ing the wash­ing process.  There is a sin­gle wide open­ing to place your insert inside the dia­per.  The insert is made of nat­ural and syn­thetic fibers between 2 lay­ers of extremely plushy soft bam­boo fleece!

 

 

 

 

I love Min­i­Mae­stro™ Dia­pers and rec­om­mend that every­one pur­chase these from now on! They:

  • Exten­si­ble and water­proof PUL outer shell
  • Soft microfleece inner to keep baby dry
  • Form-fitting elas­tics to pre­vent leaks
  • Wide pocket open­ing with dou­ble elas­tics, for easy stuffing
  • Long fold­ing aplix tabs
  • Wide front band to adjust the height of the waist

 

 

 

 

 

 

They also come in a vari­ety of sizes to fit baby just perfectly!!
