I reviewed a Kissaluvs Marvels AIO in May; that’s still a favorite of mine, and my Kissa’s Wool Lover Diaper Cover was my first ever wool (purchased in March.) So, when I won a Kissa’s Cotton Fleece Fitted from the Abby’s Lane blog chat, I was a little excited, to say the least!!
Lucky for you, I contacted Kissaluvs, and they will be giving two of my blog readers a fitted diaper as well!
In true cloth diaper addict fashion, I chose the size 0 (fits approximately 5-15 lbs) even though I don’t have a newborn, nor am I pregnant! Hey, it was free!
The size zero fits 5-15 pounds, the 1, 10-25 pounds, and the 2, 20-40 pounds. All sizes retail for $12.95 in unbleached cotton, and $13.95 in the colors. I chose the yellow.
Below, the size 0 is on top of the Marvels AIO on the small setting.
The size 0 has an umbilical cord snap down, but can also be used without it. Below, it is measured with the snap down, then unsnapped and stretched.
Here is the fitted compared to a newborn disposable, and also unsnapped, compared to a size 1 disposable:
Since I don’t have a newborn, I had to enlist a model. He’s a little smaller than a newborn!
Here he is modeling a preemie newborn diaper, so you can get an idea of size:
Size 1 disposable:
After all that, he said his hiney was itchy and he wanted to put the Kissa’s fitted on!
Much more comfy!!
It’s a little subjective, but I’d say it fits more like a preemie diaper, though it looked similar to the newborn diaper. My model isn’t a very heavy wetter, so I can’t really speak on the absorbency. I haven’t cloth diapered a newborn, but I imagine fitteds would be great. They are breathable and could likely be used coverless, since newborns tend to dirty diapers as soon as you put them on (mine did anyway!) See this on my newborn.
Giveaway: Kissaluvs is offering two diaper giveaways, which will be drawn separately. Winners choose size and color of a Kissa’s Fitted! The first is open to anyone and will be business as usual.
