It’s Monday again (How does that keep happening? Where does the weekend go?) so it’s Mailbox Mondays time! If you’d like your question to be answered in a Mailbox Mondays post, send an email to maria at change-diapers.com with “Mailbox Mondays” in your subject.
What are your favorite fitted diapers? We only have 2 (a Thirsties Fab Fitted and a Muttaqin Baby) so far. If my Thirsties is clean, it is the first diaper I grab for! I love fitteds and covers! I am looking at buying more to replace some pockets I recently sold. I would love to have your opinion because I also have a very small 1 year old who is only 18 lbs!
Hi Courtney! I’ll be honest, fitteds aren’t my favorite. Mostly because I’m lazy and I might die if I have to snap 4 extra snaps (kidding). That being said, fitteds are awesome for their absorbency. Plus, the elastic of the fitted combined with the elastic of the cover is fantastic for containing messy uhhh…messes.
A super absorbent fitted with a wool cover is a lifesaver for a heavy wetter at night. It’s finally what got me through the nights sane, and with my son dry! I love my Guerilla Fluff Utilitarian. It has two soakers with 3 layers of bamboo fleece each, with optional zorb added as well, plus a doubler with 2 layers of bamboo fleece and a layer of wool! It doesn’t have snap closures, so I just use it at night.
My Heartland Dreams Fitted is also amazing. It’s incredibly well made, super absorbent, and not really as gigantic as you’d think a diaper that absorbent would be. Plus, it came with hip snap covers!
My Ellabella Bottoms Fitted is work-at-home-mom made, just like the other two. The Ellabella Bottoms review actually has a photo of all three of these diapers stacked on top to compare thickness. This one is also very, very absorbent, though a little bulky for daytime.
Lastly, the Little Beetle Little to Big Fitted and Wool Cover are quite different than the others, but also great. It is hands down, the trimmest diaper I have. Yet, very absorbent! I wouldn’t use it at night, but it’s excellent during the day, and very cute! The elastic is drawn a bit tighter, and I think it would fit most small babies well. My son was 20 pounds at his 18 month checkup, but he’s also proportionately short, so he’s not super skinny like my long & lean daughter was!
I’ve only used maybe 10 fitted diapers, as opposed to nearly 50 Pockets/AIO/AI2 diapers! I definitely need to review more fitteds, but like anyone, I tend to spend my fluff funds on my favorites. 😉 Thirsties Fab Fitteds are definitely on my “to-try” list for newborns, if I ever get to diaper one!
How about you gals? Do you have a favorite fitted? Are they WAHM made?
