There's a bunch of benefits that come with using cloth diapers... Not only do you save a lot of money with cloth, but you also contribute to less waste and cloth diapering is actually much better for baby's skin too!
There are many different kinds of cloth diapers available, both commercially and handmade.  Hybrid fitteds, AI2's and pockets are probably my most favorite styles.  I love hybrid fitteds because there is no PUL (polyurethane laminate) sandwiched between the layers which makes these diapers completely breathable, yet highly absorbent and absolutely cushy, much more comfortable on the bum!  I am happy to share a review with you today of the hybrid fitted cloth diaper by Ham Cheeks and help you get more acquainted with this WAHM!

Ham Cheeks is run by Lana Nesbitt in Carrollton, Georgia.  She became motivated to start a business so she could share her love of cloth diapers.  Ham Cheeks opened just a few months ago and is a place you can find cloth diapers- pockets, AI2's and hybrid fitteds, cloth trainers, wipes, cloth pads, children's clothing, maxaloones, bibs, crib shoes, blankets, headbands, totebags, nursing pads as well as women's tops and undies.  Lana's favorite thing about having her own business is being able to make someone their dream diaper/outfit and says, "If there is something someone wants and has never seen before that motivates me to make that happen for them."
Lana has three children and says her family is what inspires her to do her best in everything she does.  Her son loves to brag to everyone about what his mama does and his pride really inspires her even more!
I received a one-size hybrid fitted in exchange for a thorough, honest review.  
This jellyfish print is so vivid and colorful, with a smooth, almost silky feeling outer fabric, which is a polyester swim knit.  There are color coordinating resin snaps across the front of the diaper and along the wings with two snaps on the back side of the diaper also.
In between the cute jellyfish print and inside is a layer of windpro- a thick fleece fabric that is highly breathable and water repellent. The inside of the diaper is lined with a super soft, velvety cotton velour, as well as the top layer of the snap in petal style soaker.  There are 3 layers of super heavy bamboo fleece under the velour layer on the soaker, then there is an attached bottom soaker which is another 2 layers of super heavy bamboo fleece with 1 layer of heavy hemp fleece.  On the back side of the soaker, there is a lining matching the outside of the diaper.  This soaker conveniently snaps in, keeping it from shifting around.

Each wing has 3 snaps, with 2 crossover snaps. This diaper should be able to fit a child between 8-35 pounds, just use the 10 snap fold down rise and crossover snaps for the smallest size (as shown in photo below).
Ham Cheeks diapers come prepped and ready to go on the bum!  My daughter is 22 months old and 30 lbs, and this diaper fits her wonderfully. I honestly think it's quite trim.  I would say it could get us throughout her entire second year, easily.  There are 12 front snaps, as you can see it is on the 5th snap. It's very quick to get it on and Karebear doesn't hold still very long!
The leg elastic is snug, no gaping, keeping everything in.  The first time Karebear wore this diaper for 3 and 1/2 hours without any dampness leaking through.  She was quite comfortable and dry!
To wash, you can either keep the soaker snapped in or unsnap it, then toss in with your other diapers.  I wash my diapers with a cold rinse, hot wash and cold rinse.  You can hang to dry or tumble dry on medium heat.  We've had this diaper already soiled, washed and dried 3 times and it still looks brand new!  It is obviously made with high quality materials.
Ham Cheeks is CPSIA compliant- all products have been tested for consumer product safety requirements and are certified.
Ham Cheeks is wonderful to work with!  I admire all her products!  I have high expectations with cloth diapers, and I absolutely love this diaper.  I'd recommend Ham Cheeks to anyone!
What is my favorite thing about this diaper?  With hybrids, baby gets more air on their bottom than they would with a diaper containing PUL.  
Is there anything I'd change about this product?  I have to say that I thought the extra polyester layer under the hemp layer in the soaker didn't seem to make much sense to me other than decoration.  I'd prefer to omit that layer.  This doesn't change how well the diaper performs, however.
I give Ham Cheeks Hybrids a 9.5/10!
