In a couple of days will be the kick off to the Newborn Essentials giveaway and blog hop! I haven’t done an event like this in a long time and its been so fun gathering up some great gifts for a lucky winner. I want to thank Life with My Littles for hosting this event. She is going to have so mondo amazing prizes…like I can’t even tell you how awesome its going to be over there on her blog, so make sure to check it out, as well as the other blogs participating.
Sponsor Number #1 is a local sponsor, a fabulous hubby and wife that I have personally met and spent time with. They are a super important part of our local Great Cloth Diaper Change here in the Northern VA/DC area. The Cloth Nook, not only provided me with a Geffen Fitted to check out, but they will be offering one as a part of the prize pack. So very exciting!
Pros: This is an extremely absorbant duo – the geffen fitted and inserts. I used this diaper with two inserts for nap time and it didn’t get the outside soaked through. I usually use fitteds with a wool cover of some kind. We did an overnight with all three inserts and with my heavy wetter it worked great. I like the material of both the inserts and the cover. There’s a good fit and you could probably roll it over so that it would fit a younger child. My son is currently wearing about 18-2T in the pants and these fit great. It’s pretty stretchy as well. So the size is definately adjustable. He’s a wide boy as well. When I used it with the one insert, or two, I didn’t really feel like there was a huge issue with bulk.
Cons: I’m not a fan of having to use a snappi. I found that they snag and stuff (which I had a horrible incident with it ruining a brand new shirt, LOL). I don’t use them enough to really get them down if you like using them. These are sized diapers. I really like to get my bang for my buck and using things that are one-size is great for me. There’s a bit of a bulk issue going on when you have all the inserts in, but for me that’s not really an issue at night.
