Willow Store's Sprout Change Review & Giveaway!


Generations after generations have lived on our Earth, with the understanding that all things will return to the earth, all things are reusable. 

Catherine Bolder, Founder
Recently in our history, our people have gotten off track, and have forgotten our future. We have created single use materials that cannot be returned to the Earth, that disrupt this natural cycle and change our future. We cannot continue to treat our planet as though it is single use. We must care for our planet, preserving it for our children.

 Now is the time to move forward with this basic principle. Catherine Bolden, founder and mom behind The Willow Store, created this company in 2005 to share her dedication and respect our Earth, for our children and our reusable future.

All of the products used and created by The Willow Store, are ethically manufactured in the US, they strongly support small business and living wages. They choose only the highest quality materials and organic whenever possible, sourced in the US whenever possible.

Sprout Change Cloth Diapers are unlike any other diaper on the market. They are truly innovative, patent-pending, reversible one-size diaper systems. The system is the easiest, most convenient reusable diaper available, that also happens to give you the best fit and ultra-trim absorbency. It's premium without the price. Sprout Change Cloth Diapers are made in the USA! These diapers are one-size, custom fit, easy and fits your lifestyle and your budget!

After years of research and cloth diapering her own children, Catherine Bolden created The Willow Store. Dedicated to promoting a more reusable future, she created natural and common sense products that are easy to use, and complimented a more natural lifestyle. In 2005, Willow Sprouts was born, and offered organix hemp diapering products to the cloth diapering world. Catherine spent years trying different cloth diapers to find the perfect fit for her son, who has special needs. Each diaper worked well for some things, but nothing gave that perfect combination of fit, absorbency and ease of use. So in 2010, she created Sprout Change.Sprout Change came from this need for a better diaper. There are plenty of cloth diaper out there and they all pretty much work. Sprout Change is a compilation of all the great things cloth diapers can be. The system is a hybrid unlike any other that combines pocket diapers, prefolds and all-in-ones to make the least confusing, most economical diaper available! With a price that almost anyone can afford!

Features of the Sprout Change Cloth Diapers:
  • One-size and Custom fit
  • Fits 5-40+ lbs
  • Get the right fit, fast
  • Easy size adjustments
  • Leak-free

The ease of using Sprout Change:
  • Innovative snap positions, anyone can figure out!
  • Daycare Friendly!
  • No more guessing
  • Breathable Shell keeps baby rash free
  • Unbeatable leakproof protection
  • Seamless gussets for mess-free cleanup!
 Sprout Change diapers are affordable and fits your lifestyle and your budget. Fewer Shells means less cost for you, without compromising on quality. A unique reversible shell has two colors in one. Made with TWO layers of PUL instead of just one, making these diapers last YEARS longer!

We received two reversible Sprout Change diapers in Clover and Cherry Berry! 


 The Clover diaper cover is to the left and is brown on one side and green on the other. The CherryBerry cover is to the right and is red on one side and blue on the other side.

 To use the Sprout Change diaper is just like using any other diaper cover, you can use this diaper with pretty much any prefold or flat or you can use a Super Saver insert from The Willow Store. Reuse the same cover all day or until the cover is soiled. If the cover becomes soiled with urine, you can simply wipe it down with a wet rag or hand wash in the sink and hang dry, then reuse once the diaper has dried. 

Sprout Change shell adjust step 1 Adjusting the shell to fit your baby is really simple! Put the shell on your baby to insure you will get the best fit for baby the first time! Yes, that is right, no more guessing and re-adjusting 100 times!! How awesome, hey? First you will want to find the single snap on each wing, unsnap the small pocket on one of the wings. Pull out the button and elastic ends. Unhook the waist elastic, pull the elastic until gently snug around your baby. Button it on the new setting. Repeat for the second button on that side to adjust the leg size as well to a gently snug fit for your baby. Then go to the other wing and adjust only the leg setting as you have already done the waist on the other side. And your done!! You wont have to readjust until baby grows more or baby's next growth spurt. This coupled with the single snap setting makes these shells super easy for any and everyone to use! Even in a busy daycare! As you don't have to guess and determine which snap setting to secure the diaper with to get a snug waist AND leg fit. 

 We absolutely love our Sprout Change shells and use them with prefolds. If it is near nap time I wrap one of our microfiber inserts in a prefold. The diapers are nice and soft against babies skin and leave no marks or irritation unlike other PUL covers we have used which is a huge sigh of relief for me as our boys have eczema and sensitive skin, so one less thing to irritate their skin is definitely a plus for me. Adjusting the shells are so simple! It's a one time task that will last quite a while and for us, our boys, who are 18 months apart can wear the shells on the same settings for almost the perfect fit. Cade stated as soon as we received the shells that the green one was his and the blue one was baby's. So we have the Clover shell to fit Cade's skinny waist and slimmer thighs and the CherryBerry shell to fit Ezio's more chubby waist and belly and thunder thighs.

The only thing I would change about the Sprout Change shells is I would make the wings a bit wider so it is easier to pull the elastic through to adjust, but that is the only flaw I found.
