 Zookaboo (formly Zookies then Zookiescrafts) is owned by WAHM Michele Zook. Totally amazing woman who makes super cute diaper covers, blankets, shirts, bibs and so much more. I have reviewed her medium diaper cover in the past on my lil bam bam and completely fell in love with it. This time around I reviewed her newly named Zookabum tiny diaper cover.

Let’s talk sushi ?

Zookabum Details : 

  • Fabric choice is a gorgeous Silly Sushi
  • This is a size XS which fits babies from 7-10 lbs and has a 13″rise.
  • The cover has a double row of crossover snaps and is bound with a soft, white fold over elastic.
  • Diaper cover closures are Snaps or Aplix (the one I chose is snaps)

Little Edward’s Stats:

  • 7lbs 7oz at birth currently 7lbs 11oz
  • Skinny legs.
  • currently I would consider him somewhat of a heavy wetter.
  • worn over umbilical cord and cordless

Handmade diaper cover can be used over any prefold, fitted cloth diaper. It can also be used alone as a swim diaper and it would actually be quite comfortable since the sticky pul is facing outward and the soft side is facing inward. The outer layer is 100% cotton print (you choose from the many fabric selection she has).

Fit: I have to say our Zookabum covers have been on the bum a lot these days. These covers have a great fit and are snug around my lil Edward’s tiny legs. I tried other covers on him and I just cant seem to get a good fit, they are still too big and leave gaps. Which has caused me wet onesis and more diaper changes. No fun! The fit is so awesome at this stage that I just purchased 2 more covers. Cloth diapering a newborn has been a challenge didn’t think I would have any trouble doing so, but I have. I have used these covers with prefolds, fitteds and just lay in inserts. All work amazing, no leaks and great fit and so many whimsical prints to choose from which honestly is the hardest part. What more can I ask for?  Zookabum is definitely a ‘Must Have’ cover for newborns hands down!!

Care Instruction: Machine wash cold or warm; line dry is recommended to extend the life of the cover. Recommend one dryer cycle to seal any holes made in PUL while sewing.

We love our Zookaboo covers so much I just recently purchased another cover for my lil edward in a SewFatty Zookaboo Newborn Cover Review / www.sewfatty.commustache print, and I couldnt help myself today from adding two more covers.  Michele has so many amazing fabric choices it’s a bit hard to just choose one. The diaper covers are made with great detail the fold over elastic is nice and snug and wraps over babies legs nicely without leaving red marks. I love our Zookabum’s I will be adding more to my stash as lil edward grows. Also did I mention that she is always having amazing SALE’s so be sure to check her out.
