When I first had children I could never imagine using a cloth diaper. I mean just the thought of having to wash diapers was not my thing. At the time I was so concern with what society that was right and should be done. So I went with the flow and used disposable diapers and bottle fed Bubba. As I have gotten older and wiser with each child I have started to see that just because society says it what's popular doesn't mean that it is the healthiest for my child.
While I was pregnant with Sweet Pea a friend of mine started to cloth diaper her daughter and it caught my interest. The diapers she was using what NOT what I thought cloth diapers were. I mean they looked like disposables just with cute designs. But I was still worried about the fact of cleaning the diapers. My friend walked me through the process and ensured me it wasn't as bad as I thought.
Sure enough I gradually started to win cloth diapers from giveaways to start Sweet Peas stash before she was even born. I still had disposables around the house to begin with just in case the whole cloth diapering thing wasn't for me. Well sure enough those disposable diapers were donated to a church down south that was in need after some bad storms.
One of our newest diapers added to Sweet Peas stash is a Knickernappies. I must say when I first saw this diaper I thought it would not fit Sweet Pea well. It just looked like it would be to big and would gap around her legs. Since Sweet Pea is so petite she doesn't have the super chunky legs that most people expect with babies. We had a few leaks in the beginning with the diaper but after a few more washes we haven't had any problems. I do have to keep the diaper on the smallest setting otherwise we have gaping around Sweet Peas legs.
The diaper is very soft and very comfortable for Sweet Peas little bottom. I like that the snaps are on the sides so they are not pushing on her tummy since I have it on the smallest setting. The diaper is seam free and made very nicely. I like that the insert is made of 2 layers of thirsty hemp french terry plus 2 layers of ultra-thick white microfiber, these inserts are able absorb a lot! Knickernappies has warranties on their diapers how many other companies stand behind their products for longer then a year?
Those are so cute! I've never tried those but they are totally on my list. Thanks for the information!ReplyDelete
That's awesome that they carry warranties on their diapers for that long!ReplyDelete
I have to be honest, when my kids were in diapers, I bought the disposable kind. I think with the new products that are out, I'd go to cloth.ReplyDelete
These look great! My kids have all been out of diapers for years, and I've always used disposable. But, nowadays, you see so many cute and very practical cloth diapers.. makes me want another one. NOT! lolReplyDelete
