Doll Baby Couture - Fitted Cloth Diaper and Wool Shorties Review {Sponsor Spotlight}


Doll Baby Couture offers homemade fitted diapers and wool shorties and longies. These diapers and wool soakers are available in one size as well as two sized options of newborn and mediums. 

Space Dino Fitted Diaper!

Space Dino OS Fitted Diaper ($42ARV) is so fabulously soft, stretchy and super absorbent, I fell in love with this fitted right away! This diaper is made with an outer layer of knit cotton which has the awesome print on it! Middle layer is organic bamboo/cotton fleece and the inside layer that lays against baby is a super soft cotton velour, which is a thirsty fabric leaving babies delicate skin fairly dry.


 
The soaker pad is a contoured and fold-over, they consist of soft organic bamboo fleece that is topped with matching cotton velour. The smaller pad is a doubler that is made with soft organic bamboo fleece and is also topped with cotton velour. These soaker pads are a snap-in system with no snaps exposed or pressing against babe's delicate skin.

This diaper also has a fold down rise, making it even more adjustable for each individual babe and allowing for a good from from approximately 12 - 35+ pounds. 

I have used this diaper on Cade who is 40lbs and get a good fit, however he is on the very last tummy panel snaps. Despite being on the last tummy panel snaps I can actually still use the fold down rise and get a great fit. I used this diaper on Cade during the day as well as over night. Cade is a heavy wetter and using this diaper with a thicker wool cover left him dry in the morning! 

I also used this diaper on Ezio who is 20 months old and about 26 pounds. Ezio has a really skinny waist and I did use the fold down rise with him as well and achieved a secure fit! I mostly use fitted diapers on Ezio and this one is great for nap and bedtime for him as well. Ezio is not quite as heavy of a wetter as Cade is.
Sorry apparently the on the bum photos have been lost somewhere, I will update hopefully soon with some action shots! 

Wool Interlock Shorties!

These super soft Wool Interlock Shorties ($25-$37ARV) are super soft and breathable. They are made from a heavy weight wool interlock and a heather grey interlock is used for the waist and leg bands. The seams are securely surged and there is an added layer sewn into the wet zone of the shorties. These are great for night time or when ever you may need extra protection and best of all they are gender neutral, perfect for a baby girl or boy!

This wool is thinner them other wools, making them even better for summer use in hot climates. Both of my boys get heat rash, especially in the diaper area when we've had to use PUL on a hot day. When I see a rash presenting it's self I allow it no time to become horrible and cause further pain or discomfort to either one of my sons', I immediately put them in a nice fitted that with this pair of wool shorties over it and by the next diaper change the heat rash is nearly gone. The boys have had such bad heat rashes that they have even continued to spread after hours of being in the house in just a diaper and the central air being on. Not sure why this happens, but at least I've discovered wool is a quick way to relieve them of most diaper area rashes that the wool comes in contact with. I think once the boys potty train and if they still fit either of them I will use this as undies if they develop a rash for whatever reason. 

We received a pair of Large shorties from Doll Baby Couture and they fit 18m-2T, they fit Ezio great, but seeing as how Cade is in a size 3T-5 I didn't want to stretch them out by trying them on Cade. They fit Ezio great and I love them so we will just keep them for Ezio, beside Cade has his own pair of wool shorties. Wool is truly amazing! Don't worry about wool being too hot in summer because wool is actually cool in the summer and warm in the winter... pretty neat huh?! Sorry apparently the photo of Ezio wearing the shorties has disappear as well, I'll update with an action shot hopefully soon!
