3 Sweet Peas Fitted Diaper and Cover

Last week I won a giveaway for a fitted diaper and cover.  The woman will be opening her Etsy shop on the 29th.  So I told her I wouldn't mind reviewing her creation.

First off, it came faster than anything I'd ever ordered.  I don't know if she knows someone who knows someone at the post office, but it was truly amazing.  One day it was, "I'll need your address to ship" and the next day it was here.

First I'll review the cover.

When I opened up my free "fluffy mail" I really liked everything in it.  Then I really got to looking at it, and the cover kind of shocked me.  It was extremely wide.  I'm talking seriously wide.  I was wondering if I could even use it!  I took out my largest fitteds and they still were to small for this diaper.

Now I'm all for wide covers.  Don't get me wrong, but I wasn't sure what to do with this one.  Still I tossed it in the diaper pail and decided I was going to use it anyways.  But if your one of those mommas who doesn't like a whole lot of PUL near baby's skin, this cover may not be the right one for you.

Here is what it looks like

This is the diaper cover open

 Here it is closed.  It does not have snaps and is not a one size.  
And this is what I meant by it being wide.  I put my widest cover, a flip cover in it.  And this is what that looks like.

Ok, now that we're done with that, how did it preform?

I washed this cover with all my other diaper laundry.  I even dried it in the dryer.  It washed and dried fine.  I'm wondering if the dryer "activated" the velcro though, because when it came out of the dryer it was Superman tough to open.  The cover does have laundry tabs on it.  And trust me, these things are not coming loose in the wash at all.  I used the cover anyways(yes I know I have a boy, I'm an equally opportunity cloth diaperer, I love all diapers), and even though it was wide, it did work well.

So the pros.
It's really wide, nothing can leak out of this thing trust me!
It has super duper strength laundry tabs! 
It's a very generous cut!
It has flaps in the front and back to stuff it.
Feels sturdy

Because it's so wide, I'm not sure that I could stuff it with any prefolds as I would my Thirsties.

Now onto the fitted diaper.

When I pulled this glorious diaper out of the box, I was in love just touching it.  It was super soft, and I just couldn't wait to prep it and put it on Malachi's bum!  Even though yes, it's a girls print!

The diaper comes with a double snap in booster, which I have to say is not needed at all!  It makes the diaper very large and bulky, but it totally feels without the booster that it could hold up to anything.

It stood up to the dryer test too.  After one dryer cycle, this thing was dry and ready to go.  Including the boosters!

Here's what it looks like.

This is the diaper snapped together.  It's a different kind of diaper than I've ever used because it has hip snaps.  I've been dying to try one of these.  
Here is the inside of the diaper and the doublers.  I didn't remember it going into the wash green, it was just as white as the doublers, but then I realized she had put green fabric underneath.  So it turned a little green but it does not affect the diaper at all.  And it is on the inside.

I'm not sure what all the diaper is made out of.  The outside feels to me like there is some jersey in there, and the inside feels like a loop terry of a sort, but this is all just off of feel.  Regardless, it's super soft, even after washing. 

I used it on Malachi at nighttime.  Since now he's been sleeping for up to 4 hours at a time.  I used it with all the doublers and the cover.  And when he woke up, the outside of the diaper wasn't even wet!  With all the doublers in there, he couldn't even pee out of the diaper!(well not yet at least)  It was truly amazing.  At that time I immediately became a big fan of these fitteds.  I was totally in love with this diaper.

So the cons.
It's bulky with the doublers.  (It's the only thing I can thing of!)

The pros!
Has doublers.
Dries fast for a fitted
Snaps are hidden in the diaper, so absolutely NO snaps will touch baby's skin except for where the doubler snaps in.
Soft, soft, soft
Very absorbent

I think that's it.  Because we used it at night time I couldn't get a picture of Malachi IN the diaper itself.

I also don't know what she normally charges for these diapers, because her shop is not open yet.

You can contact her on FaceBook for now and send her a message she'll let you know.  

She also makes a variety of other things too, that you can see on her FaceBook until her shop opens on the 29th.
