WAHM Bam Thank You…. Work at Home Moms?? It’s the Work at Home Mom Spotlight with Ham Cheeks Cloth Diapers. Otherwise known as WAHMs, work at home Moms are small business machines. Unlike big companies that have a sales person, a social media person, customer service workers, seamstresses and team of helpers…a WAHM creates your item from start to finish; From sewing the diaper you receive, to packing, shipping and running their own facebook pages. WAHMs are amazing. One WAHM I need to share with you is Ham Cheeks! Have a look at this fantastic Hybrid diaper and learn about this company below:
The diaper seen here is a Ham Cheeks Hybrid Fitted! What makes this hybrid fitted special? A standard fitted has Poly Fleece hidden between the inside and outside layers. This Hybrid has Windpro. Many cloth diapering parents prefer Windpro over the standard poly fleece because it repels more of the moisture back into diaper fabrics and the outside typically stays dryer longer. It is more expensive then regular Poly Fleece, but in my opinion, worth it in the long run. This diaper has gone nearly 5 hours before I even found a hint of damp on my well hydrated 20 m/o and as you can see, it has lots of absorbency!
The double snap-in soaker is a great feature. It holds securely in place even when my toddler is running and being very active. I wasn’t sure about the snap-in booster. At first I thought the snaps would provide some crotch-discomfort, however they’re placed so they avoid …what I might refer to as sensitive areas. The top layer that goes over the snaps is also thick enough that they’re very hard to feel. I love that the entire diaper comes apart into 3 pieces! The main soaker, the snap-in booster, and the hybrid shell. It makes washing and drying easy. Of some note, If you look at the border around this diaper front and wings you may notice it’s bit ruffled or wavy. It’s not perfectly straight, and I believe this is a preference in sewing feet and the amount of pressure, but in no way impacts the diaper’s function or performance.

Ham Cheeks creations are handmade in the USA in Georgia and include Pockets, AI2s and Hybrid Fitteds (seen here). Lana, shop owner and designer, is the Proud Mama to 21 m/o twins and a 6 year old! In addition to her family, she started sewing cloth diapers less then 1-year ago and has already made hundreds. Ham Cheeks was named after each of her 3 babies, their names spell out H-A-M. Her children and her husband have served as major support and inspiration for her business. In addition, she finds inspiration from the many amazing customers she has met since her shop opened. You can find Ham Cheeks on Facebook, Shop Ham Cheeks Online (may or may not be stocked). I highly recommend visiting her facebook page to give her a ‘like’ and check out the photos she has of available fabrics and finished work.
