Dippee Dypees

Todays WAHM is Dippee Dypees! She makes some awesome High Rise Prefolds

-When/how did you decide to become a WAHM?
When my youngest was born she had very sensitive skin. All disposable diapers would give her a horrible rash. I started researching cloth diapers and went with fuzzi bunz to start, but alas, she was allergic to the synthetics in them too! I then moved into bamboo prefolds and fitteds with covers. These did the trick, but I couldn't afford the crazy prices so I ordered some material and gave it a try. Having gotten a pattern down I liked and worked well for my daughter, I thought hey I wonder if these would do well for others. Dippee Dypees was born. I opened a facebook page on October 1, 2010 and my etsy shop was opened a few months later. Things were so busy so fast that I recruited a friend to help me out with sewing and prep work! I would be lost without my dear friend Patsy!! It has been wonderful, crazy, exciting and very uplifting to be able to offer good quality products an affordable price :)

-What made you decide to open the store and sell the items that you do?
October 2010 Dippee Dypees made its debut on facebook! By December we was so back logged on orders due to the fact that we was doing strictly customs via facebook. Patsy and I tinkered with the idea of opening an etsy shop and finally we did just that. Now our etsy shop is home to all we make! You can find bamboo breast pads, bamboo tri folding soakers, winged prefolds of all sizes, bamboo velour washcloths, fitted dypees, AI2, and starting next month, we are excited to offer bamboo trainers!!

-What kinds of items do you sell?
While we do offer fitteds and AI2, our main passion here is winged or extended tab prefolds. We make them in 3 sizes from newborn, we call these itty bittys, to toddler size, we call these highrises, you can always find a perfect fitting prefold here! Couple that with our bamboo velour wipes and a super cute dypee cover and your little one is set for a day of squishy, comfy fun!

-Are all the items you sell made by you?
All the items we make are made right here on my dining room table!! While I am doing cutting and serging, my dear friend Patsy is always playing with new pattern ideas and is a mean mama on that sewing machine!!

-Share a little about your family where you are from etc
I have been married for 14 years this September! My hubbys family is very thick in the boy department, so our first 3 are all boys lol!! Josiah is our oldest, he is 13, oh my!! Malachi is next and will be 12 in October and starting middle school this fall!! Adin is our third boy, he will be 8 in august and heading into 3rd grade :). We thought we were done there, no more kiddos for us....well................. on November 25, 2009 Miss Myah made her grand entrance to the world!! We were shocked and excited when she was born, due to the fact that hubbys family has so few girls but we got one!!! We all live in Washington state, way up by the Canadian border in a wonderful little town!!

Dippee Dypees
sent me one of their high rise extended tabs prefold to use and review as well as one of their wipes. As soon as I opened the package I was enjoying this prefold. This super cute food print was perfect for my son who LOVES to eat...and eat...and eat....you get the point. Anyways this is just adorable to begin with, plus its super soft and has to this point remained super soft as well. This is surged around the edges and is done so with great care. I haven't had any issues with stitching coming undone etc.
Here is the diaper folded up (above)
This is pretty easy to fold and put on your LO. You bring the end that doesn't have the tabs on it together and then fold it up over your baby then pull the tabs around babies side and snappi/pin it on!
Here is the prefold all opened up.
The inside of the diaper has two seams sewn down the middle like a cotton prefold does. The wash cloth that Dippee Dypees sent me has flannel on one side and a nice velour material on the other. I like have two different textures on the wipes because you can get a good clean with a 'rougher' material than you can with a soft material.
I love this prefold. Its so super trim it feels like he is wearing undies with a cover on top of them. Its great. I was worried about absorbancy in this because of the fact that it is trim but my son has really cut down on not peeing as much and so he doesn't soak through this really. I try to change diapers every 2 hours as well so this worked great for us. I was nervous the first time and put an extra hemp insert on top of this but there wasn't a need for it. The wash cloth is great, cute print, nice materials that work great for removing poo.
