SewFatty: Gen-Y New Small Universal Cover Review / www.sewfatty.com Sweet Fit:

I believe there is always a trick to any side snapping diaper. You will always need to try different snapping options to get the right fit. It can be a few tries till you get the fit you want. After you get that down, it becomes easy peasy. The inner gussets really wrap nicely around babies legs. Another great feature, that I love about the cover is that the inner gussets do not wick moisture, they are also lined with PUL. All the dirty messes really do stay in. The shaped inner flaps are totally amazing for using inserts, prefolds, flats keeps everything in place without them riding up on your babies belly. The snaps Gen-Y uses are like no other. I have never seen these snaps they are thick and durable the structure of the diaper is really just like no other very high quality materials (as seen on the photo).

SewFatty: Gen-Y New Small Universal Cover Review / www.sewfatty.com Overall:

I absolutely love our Gen-Y diaper cover. I was very impressed when I received it, and still after fully diapering with it, I have to say it’s one of my favorite. The cover was a bit big on my little Edward at 7lbs 7oz and skinny legs. It started to fit him after about a week and half after being born once he got a bit more chunkiness around the legs. The coverage with fitted’s is amazing it covers great with the snaps undone. We experienced zero leaks. Gen-Y covers are amazing, the quality of diaper is exceptional. They are made in the US. The functionality of the diaper is amazing. The price is a bit more then others but here is what the company had to say about that.“There are several reasons for the price. 1) Our diapers are made in small batches in the US. We are committed to having our diapers manufactured in the US which make things more expensive. 2) We use high quality fashion fabrics 3) We offer a 6 mnth warranty 4) Our covers have an AMAZING resale value.” I would totally recommend Gen-Y covers they are awesome. I do not have the older version of the universal to compare it to so sorry about that, but will say that this diaper cover is like no other and it’s definitely worth the price in my opinion.

Zookaboo Newborn Cover Review #MamasBabe

SewFatty Zookaboo Newborn Cover Review / www.sewfatty.com

SewFatty Zookaboo Newborn Cover Review / www.sewfatty.com

 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 ? 

sewfatty: sushi zookabum diaper cover review www.sewfatty.com

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.

Eden’s Baby
Swaddlebees Capri Cover and Insert Review

While on my trip to San Antonio, I visited a cloth diaper store Eden’s Baby. I was beyond excited to go to my first cloth diaper store. The owner behind Eden’s Baby Brooke was super awesome, we scheduled an appointment before hand since her store is based out of her home. We visited her store, I was in awe so much fluff and real cute toys for kids, detergents, strollers anything a baby would need Eden’s Baby has you covered.

Brooke and I talked about Eden’s Baby and how it all started and it really started with her mom. Her mom suggested they start a cloth diaper store and so they did, their store started off at a actual store front but then life got in way and so Brooke’s home became her store. It’s cute and intimate I love it and really didn’t want to leave so much fluff and toys and her company were great.

Brooke was kind enough to have me review the Swaddlebees Capri Cover and Inserts. I had not tried them so figured it would be great. So lets talk Capri Cover and Inserts.

Capri Cover : 

Simple, reusable and waterproof with inner leg gussets and adjustable snaps. Comes with your choice of snap closures or hook and loop closures. I like both but really just a personal preference. The Capri offers a feature of the “stay-put” flaps that insure your insert stays in place. Comes in different solid colors and prints.

Capri Inserts:

Is a multi-layered insert made from 100% birdseye cotton fabric. It has a half layer of microfleece to give you the option of choosing whether you want a stay-dry fabric against your baby’s skin, or all natural cotton. These inserts are ultra-absorbent and ultra-flexible. The extra long, foldable design makes these inserts quick to dry and easy to layer the absorbency where your baby needs it most.

My Experience

There is so many things I love about the Swaddlebees Cover & Inserts

  • The “stay put” flap is awesome, I love that our inserts don’t shift so much due to this flap.
  • The inner gussets are a big thing for me I love that messes stays inside. I love covers that have inner gusset feature.
  • The PUL is thick yet soft on babies skin, making it feel sturdy compared to other covers I own.
  • The Capri comes in 2 sizes making it a great choice to choose for babies that are smaller and bigger.
  • Comes in 8 different prints and 7 solid colors. The print I have is Swirls.
  • Swaddlebees are made in the US they are a very natural company.
  • I love that their inserts are all natural with a layer of microfleece, since I like the stay dry effect on my son.
  • Also the fact that is a long inserts makes washing and drying a lot more easy and cut backs on drying time.

Overall we love our Capri cover and inserts it makes a perfect diaper cover that can used more then one time, since all I have to do is change out the inserts unless pooped in. This cover is one of our favorite covers a little on the pricier side but well worth the price in my opinion. The fit is nice around lil bam bam’s legs there is never any red marks, I believe Swaddlebee’s brand is overall great in so many ways definitely one of our favorite brands.
