Imse Vimse Contour Diapers
Imse Vimse Organic Flannelette Contour Diapers ($41.50ARV) are made of 100% organic cotton and have elastic through the legs. These are one size diapers for babies and toddlers from approximately 11 to 35 pounds. They also have them available in a smaller newborn size for babies from approximately 4.5 to 18 pounds. This contour diaper has been approved for the Swedish Environmental License because it is a quick drying and energy conserving diaper. This diaper is very soft and absorbent as well as trim, not at all bulky. Great ease of use as well!
Prepping my Imse Vimse Contour Diapers
Yes, I most certainly did boil them! Why? Because you can boil contour diapers, flats and prefolds for about 30-45 minutes, then wash as you would usually wash a soiled cloth diaper and dry as normal. This completely omits the 3 to 5 plus washes most things recommend before using to acquire great absorbency. Some people do not realize that these 3 to 5 plus washes, also mean you have to dry them in between each wash! To me this is craziness and I boil any and everything that I possibly can as I am way to impatient to wait for my new diapers to be washed and dried that many times!
Imse Vimse Contour Diapers have a unique design to them. They are made of a very layers of organic cotton with a sewn in soaker of organic cotton. The soaker is sewn into the front of the diaper. This type of soaker and organic cotton material help for very quick drying and would be the perfect diaper for anyone who has to hand wash and also for those who hang dry.
Ease of use!
These contour diapers very easy to use! You just lay the sewn in soaker flat along the wet zone and wrap onto baby. But what if this is too big for my baby? There are no rise snaps. Very simple! Just fold down the back and/or the front to adjust the size to your baby's needs as well as creating a pocket to eliminate messes. You can fasten this diaper together with pins, snappi or boingos. I only have Snappi's right now and they glide on so easily!
I could probably fold down the front or back to eliminate a bit of the 'extra' fabric, but I like the fit we achieve with these awesome contour diapers. The elastic is covered by the organic cotton leaving no irritation or red marks on Ezio's thighs.
Ezio is 18 months old and 26 pounds, he has a skinny waist, but quite the chubby belly, especially after he's been eating and has a full tummy. The Snappi grabs onto the fabric with great ease! No struggling to get the teeth of the Snappi to hook onto the fabric of the diaper. If I had diaper pins, I would only need one pin to place in the middle thanks to the generously sized wings and Ezio's skinny waist.
You could always add a doubler below of above the sewn in soaker, I personally choose not to as I feel the diaper is absorbent enough by it's self for Ezio's use during the day. I have not tried these on him through out the night, but he has napped while wearing one and it was great, no leaks and it wasn't yet completely soiled. He naps for about 3 hours and I'm almost certain he could go a couple more hours past that, maybe even more.
I have not tried these on Cade yet, but I will and I will update this post with our experience with that.
