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!
