Over the past year I have become increasingly aware of our environment and the alarming rate at which bees are disappearing. I was thrilled to see our first bees this season, and once the gardens really began to grow we even created a bee sanctuary. Due to the use of pesticides, both on and in crops like GMO produce, bees have been dying at an alarming rate. No bees = No food. Well, very limited food.
I was shocked to learn that bee keepers drive hives cross-country to meet the needs of farmers, and that in some other countries they have resorted to hand-pollinating flowers because their bee population is gone. We’re working hard to do our part by spreading education about this crisis and keeping our own yard bee-friendly.
With all of our bee-loving efforts, I was thrilled to find Bee Changed cloth diapers from The Little Bee Co!! I sent them an e-mail right away and am a proud owner of this beautiful pocket diaper known as World Changer. In addition to this amazingly bee friendly brand name, the company donates 1-diaper to an orphan in need for every diaper purchased. Cloth diaper company soul mates perhaps?! Read more below and see some photos of this wonderful print, this is a company you won’t want to forget!
Okay, so Bee Changed doesn’t actually have to do with a mission to save bees. However, as you can see, there is a little bee on the label…and I’m convinced this little worker bee will help spread knowledge about the growing crisis. In addition to this fantastic label, the diaper comes with a very noteworthy set of inserts, an elasticized front and back waist line, two rows of rise-snaps, and cross over snaps. The 100% poly outer means that this is waterproof without a cover, and diapers are designed in Pennsylvania (WooHoo Go PA!) and ethically made in China. Features include;
- Waterproof PUL outer

As you can see in the smallest and largest settings (pictured below) this diaper can fit little babies. I was impressed at the trim leg opening that is just larger them my finger, and narrow waist closure. I can’t wait to try this on our new arrival when he makes his appearance…although his two older brothers in cloth are in love with this print! The inserts are super absorbent and I don’t need a booster with my 32 and 37 lb sons for day use. While this diaper fits my older babies, it does remind me of a man-kini or speedo. It sits below their belly buttons and creates a nice trim closure with the elastic. They are both on the largest setting and we are definitely out of room.
While this diaper comes with either the microfiber (white set seen above) or organic hemp/cotton inserts (cream set seen above), I remain a huge natural fiber fan…however, if I was going with a microfiber set…this would be it! The contoured smaller insert helps reduce crotch bulk and the inserts can be used alone, or paired for maximum absorbency. It’s a very nice feature. The natural fiber inserts (unlike the microfiber) require several washes to be “prepped” and reach maximum absorbency.
