Chunky Monkey Products Diaper Review

Being a small Family business, we like to support other family businesses and help them out when we can.  Chunky Monkey Products is a WAHM business run by K a mother of 4 creative and cute kids!

After a bad customer review, I decided to try out one of K's diapers from her store Chunky Monkey Products.  (Small business can only do well with great reviews and customer service, so I wanted to try them out and see really what was up.  One really displeased customer can really hurt a small business).  I can say that I had been wanting to try one of her diapers for a while because, well...they are just so CUTE!  Anyway, this was an older style diaper that got the negative review so I have been using it for a few months now.  The rise on her diapers is actually a bit longer than most every other pocket diaper that I have.  You can't really see it in this picture but it has 5 rise snaps!  It came with a prefold insert but Bubby is a super soaker and those just don't work for us.

So that took me some getting used to (and a few leaks from the wrong fit!).  Bubby has been on either completely unsnapped or just 1 rise snap down on all his other OS pocket diapers, so I just assumed it would be the same for the past several months.  Nope, he needed to be 3 snaps down, in just the last week he is now between the1st and 2nd rise snap settings depending on the stuffing.

We still had some leak issues, but figured out that if we treat the diaper more like an AI2 then it didn't leak (per K's suggestion as that is how her Miss Clara has to wear pockets)!  So now I just put my insert either my babykicks hemp or microfiber with a liner/sleeve covering it so it doesn't dry out Bubby's bottom.
I put a red insert in the sleeve so you could actually see how it is laid in there.

Here is Bubby 9 months old in his CMP diaper.

For the overall fit, it does seem to have a bit of wing droop, but not too bad.
Here he is 11 months old
You can see the little bit of wing droop here.

And taking his first real steps in his CMP diaper! :)

Bubby is now 13 months old (nearly 14 months!!! I just can't believe it!) and I still grab out his CMP diaper to show off.  I have actually started treating many of his pocket diapers like AI2, by laying the insert on the outside of the pocket and have had so many less leaks!  I also haven't had to strip as much.  I think him peeing so quickly was the reason for the leaking before not needing to be stripped.
13 months and never sitting still again!

Chunky Monkey Products has a great selection of items for your family!
She has recently started doing embroidery, and now has quite a great selection of fonts, designs, and pictures to choose from.  Some examples:
A custom order embroidered shirt and matching diaper!

And my new  personal favorite that she has made!

She also does: Wet bags, changing pads, mama cloth, jammies, leggings and MORE!!!

Oh how I wish I had lots of money so that I could buy lots of items from all the wonderful WAHMs that I know!
