Kissaluvs Kutie Printed Diaper Covers (review & giveaway)

Everyone knows I'm a fluff fan (the blog title gives that away, eh?), but many that know me really well know most of my stash is comprised of pockets. This is not because I dislike AIOs, Fitteds, or Flats/Prefolds and covers... this is mostly because it's what I could sell my husband on when it came down to the "cloth diapering conversation". (You know, the one where you simply tell them nonchalantly that you are going to be cloth diapering, then you give them the choice of how they want to go about doing it via showing them the different types of diapers! ...well, that's what happened for us, anyway!)

Since starting out, I've slowly incorporated other types of diapers into the mix. I can't quite get hubby on board with the flats/prefolds and a cover since that requires him to learn folds, but we'll work on that when Squiggle (#2!) comes along. Still, covers and fitteds are something that he might be more on board for.

Speaking of covers, Kissaluvs sent me an adorable diaper cover to review for them. No, seriously... it's adorable! See? Geckos!


It's a One-size cover that fits from 10lbs to 40lbs, so while it wouldn't work well for a newborn (unless you have larger babies), it works for the rest of their diapering days!

There are cross-over waist snaps to ensure a good fit for all sizes and builds of babies, double gussets (which I totally love!) to help contain messes, and they don't use velcro (sorry, aplix lovers!) but offer a lifetime guarantee on snaps. The picture below shows the diaper made as small as it will go.


The cover is durable and made from water resistant PUL on the inside, but is 100% cotton printed fabric for the outside. These prints are cute, too. Super cute. Because the inside can be wiped clean between uses, it minimized the number of covers you might need, too. Just wipe, put a new diaper on (fitted, contour, flat, etc.), and voila! Ready to go!






































 The trickiest part of reviewing this diaper was actually getting shots of it on Bobble. Everything else was a breeze! The diaper is super easy to use, and it fit great! Everything (messes included!) stayed where they should... in the diaper! The fit was really good on Bobble (our nearly 30lb little man!), and he liked pointing/staring at the geckos on the cover!





I tried to get a shot of how it fit him standing up, but he wouldn't hold still (hence the blurry picture above). The only way I could get a shot of how it fit his bottom was to tell him to "give the wall a hug".... and this was the best one I got!















The angle wasn't the greatest on that one, but at least it wasn't blurry! The diaper stayed nice and snug no matter what Bobble was doing, including running around and getting into things like he does best! There were no leaks when he climbed, jumped from things (which we cannot figure out how to get him to stop... any advice on that one is welcome!), rolled around, etc. It stayed tight enough to keep in what it should, while being loose enough to not hurt him or leave any marks.










































These are really nice covers, and they work very well! If I could change one thing about them, it would be an additional snap on the wings (and an additional row on the diaper) for the hips to help customize the fit more. We definitely love this cover... and mom loves the durability and reliability! (Seriously... I hate cleaning up messes on the carpet!) If you're in the market for a diaper cover, check out Kissaluvs!

  1. those are adorable! I must say the more I learn about cloth diapers the more I am leaning toward covers and either prefolds or flats. It just seems easier and more economical. I love that a cover can be used more than once as long as it doesn't have a blowout diaper inside of it!

    1. I love the covers and flats, I just haven't used them near enough to say I'm an expert with those! My husband is a fan of the pockets because he just grabs one and does it up. I have it stuffed and ready to go. If it was just me doing diapering, it would have been easier to have a bigger stash of covers/prefolds/flats.

  7. While I like aplix for newborns (it fits better around teeny legs), I prefer snaps overall because they don't wear as fast and it takes longer for little ones to figure out how to take it off! :) Lifetime guarantee on snaps is awesome!

  13. Oh my gosh! A gecko diaper cover! Now THAT is adorable! I have been thinking about adding a kissaluv cover to my stash, but wasn't sure about them for holding in messes. Now that I know they have double gussets, I'm sold!

  16. I really like how vibrant this print is. Double gussets are certainly a plus for a cover along with the crossover snaps.

  21. I want to try a cover with double gussets. The ones with single gussets work ok, no messes so far, but I like the reassurance it gives.

  22. hahaha i love the pictures of him! I've never tried any of kissaluvs diapers before! Maybe I'll ask for one for my sons first birthday to give them a try! I love Double Gussets, too

  23. I like that they fit bigger babies. My two year old is 35 lbs and a few of his diapers are getting too small...
