Ecobubs Wool-Blend Diapers from New Zealand are now available here in the US!
Camden has one on right now (Monday evening) double stuffed. I will sleep soundly tonight with no worries about leaks.
Ecobubs inserts are 4 layers of microfiber x 2 = 8 thirsty layers.
I LOVE stripes. Stripes make me giddy. Not only are Ecobubs cute and absorbent but they fit my tall chunky thighed 9 month old really well.
No worries about red marks with the gentle leg casings and side snap.
Gwen sent me a navy/cream striped wool-blend Ecobubs to review and I give it 2 very big thumbs up.
I asked Gwen if she would mind filling us in how she got involved with Ecobubs and the creation of her company Grin Unlimited. Join me in learning more about the story…
Tell us about your family.
Our company is run by Grandma/Mama team, Kelly and Gwen.
Kelly, Finance Director, is a recently retired network engineer from Intel and adoring grandma to 2 beautiful little girls. She comes from the “Old School” of diapering, using cotton pre-folds and plastic covers. She marvels over the ease, comfort, functionality and stylishness of the Ecobubs wool pockets.
Gwen, WAHM and Managing Director, is Mama to 2 gorgeous girls, Odessa and Aerowyn. She thrives on creativity and development. With Ecobubs she has finally found a product she can stand behind and is thrilled at the opportunity of bringing Ecobubs to the US.

When did you first start using cloth diapers?
As a 2nd time mother to a newborn, I wanted to make the switch to cloth diapers. I tried several brands and came across a little gem in New Zealand called Ecobubs. They quickly became my favorite and the other brands I purchased began to collect dust on the changing table. I was so excited about this amazing little striped “nappy” I found myself wanting to tell the world about it, whoever would listen!
That’s how Grin Unlimited was conceived and the motto of our store was born.
“We love it so much we share it.” –Gwen
Our company, Grin Unlimited, are the exclusive US distributors of the Ecobubs Wool Pockets from New Zealand.
What makes Ecobubs unique? Why choose it over other cloth diapers?
Ecobubs are wool-blend pocket diapers. Because we use a wool-blend, Ecobubs can be machine washed like other cloth diapers.
They are incredibly durable, (will hold their shape wash after wash,) and require no extra care.
In addition, we use a special PUL layer in the middle of the diaper. Our PUL is more breathable and also more durable than the the standard brand here.
Combining the temperature regulating wool with the breathable PUL creates a wonderful diaper that will contain leaks, keep baby comfortable, and free up your time. (No lanolin or special care required.) They are a must for nighttime and irrisistably cute during the day.
What is your go-to advice for parents new to cloth diapering?
Having a system in place with the right equipment is essential in making the switch to cloth diapers. Once you start, it’s easy!
We consult on the phone or through email on how to get started. Our store is a one-stop cloth diapering shop. We carry almost everything you will need for your home diapering system.
