Cloth diapers are fantastic for numerous reasons, but I'm going to tell you a little secret... my personal favorite reason why I absolutely love using cloth is because of the variety of prints and designs.  You can find anything you're interested in and get it on a diaper.  It's a great way to show off your advocacy, your hobbies, whatever is special to you.  When I found Littlin Cloth Diapers & Baby Essentials, I was ecstatic because they offer several prints that are right up my alley.  The "This Is Love" All-In-One from Littlin is perfect for anyone that's proud of their breastfeeding journey.


First, let me tell you a little about Littlin!  This family-owned company began in 2016 in New Hampshire with a desire to cater to everyone's different cloth diapering needs with high quality products that are functional, affordable and adorable.  These diapers are CPSIA compliant, meaning they are passed to government specifications on safety.  All the designs are created by the Littlin family team, "made up of geeky graphic artists and software engineers. As parents and activists, we wanted to combine our passions and skills to further our causes."  These diapers are manufactured in China, which brings down the cost and keeps them affordable.  Littlin also manages Cloth with Courage, which donates a percentage of sales to relating causes.  

The "This Is Love" diaper design has a print with the chemical symbol of oxytocin on it, the hormone released during the let-down reflex to baby's suckling.  (1)  It also has a creative breastfeeding symbol in both blue and grey among the oxytocin.  The snaps are blue and the wings of the diaper are grey.
There are a total of 4 rise settings, which adjust the diaper to 4 sizes- essentially, a size small, medium, large and x-large.  There are two rows of 10 waist snaps, with crossover and hip snaps to keep the diaper secure and help the diaper fit perfectly.  This diaper should work from birth to potty training!
The inside of the diaper has two sewn-in inserts. They have serged edges. One sewn-in at the back, one sewn-in at the front. The front insert has 3 layers of bamboo cotton, and the back insert has 2 layers of bamboo cotton with a top liner layer of suedecloth.  You can fold each of these down flat, or lay in any specific way to provide a thicker wetzone protection area.  You can also add additional absorbency under or between the layers, if need be.
The outside fabric is made with polyurethane laminate (PUL) which is waterproof and there is a tummy panel in the front inside of the diaper to keep moisture from rising too far upwards.
Overall, the fit of this diaper is great!  My 11 month old is just under 20 pounds and I found this diaper reliable on sizing. I think it's trim and it easily lasts 3 hours without dampness around the legs. I also have the Made of Awesome print AIO.  Love these diapers!
If you prefer using covers, this print is also available in a cover.  I have a Littlin Intactivist cloth diaper cover and use it with my prefolds!
What's my favorite thing about this diaper?
Showing off my advocacy for breastfeeding!  Also, I've come to really like AIO's, they take less time because you don't have to sort for all the inserts and attach them.
Is there anything I'd change?
I love this diaper and the other two that I have.  If there's anything that I'd like to see different, I'd love to see more prints and I wish these were manufactured here in the US.
I give Littlin Cloth Diapers a 10/10!

  1. Diapers are an essential for babies. It is one of the most used products that helps keep a baby comfortable and reduce a mother's load. Recently I bought some baby cloth diapers from AlvaBaby store at a very low price. I am waiting for your new post.
