Bellies, Babies 'n More Review & Giveaway


Bellies, Babies 'n More started as a branching out of the owner, Charlene Chartier's, doula services. Opened in the Fall of 2007, the business has expanded to now specialize in fleece diaper covers while offering cloth diapers, cloth wipes, mama items, and pregnancy blessing jewelry. Charlene says that her goal is to "offer my clients and families around the world items that celebrate pregnancy, birth and childhood!" which is evident in the effort she puts into providing more natural products for young families to use.

We recently reviewed a pair of crescent moon shorties from Bellies, Babies 'n More. They are made of a light yellow colored fleece with a white trim around the waist. Though I still need to get some photos of these great shorties (maybe I'll post them tomorrow if I'm really industrious tonight when I get home after working late...), we do like them. They're surprisingly easy to pull on, and also are easy for the baby to move around in while wearing them. I think the key to this is the special circular fabric that makes up the seat, allowing for more room to move and to fit over a diaper than a traditional shorts pattern. One of the nice things about the shorties is that they can be washed in the washer and dried in the dryer. Charlene does recommend to not dry them with items that produce a lot of lint (like towels or pre-fold cloth diapers) as this will cause premature pilling of the fleece.


Similar to the shorties, Bellies, Babies, 'n More also offers fleece soakers and crescent moon yoga pants. These are very cute options, all with the same type of pattern and same materials as the shorties. Everything that Chalene offers can be custom made and she has a huge selection of fleece prints and solids to choose from on her website. Prices are very reasonable, with soakers for $8.00, shorties for $10.00, and yoga pants for $12.00. Her biggest deal is on the wipes-- 20 for $15.00! Smaller amounts are available as well.

Buy it! When you place an order from Bellies, Babies, 'n More, mention the code "LifeMoreSimply" for 10% off of your total!

  25. I am new to cloth diapering and I hope that I can earn chances to win diapers for my baby. I am unable to buy new diapers at this time, so my friend blessed me with some of her old ones. All velcro, she switched to snaps. I love the info on this blog it helps me alot with things I need to know about cloth diapering. I love the shorties and any would be ok with me. jcarender@yahoo.com
