Okay...I know that some of you must be thinking I am crazy for including cloth diapering accessories in my Mad About Mama event. You're probably thinking, "Isn't Mother's Day about the MOM, not the baby?" Well, yes. Yes, it is. BUT... I know a lot of you are probably jumping for joy over a fluff giveaway, because you know and understand one strange commonality among cloth-diapering mamas: Cloth diapers are addictive. They are probably as addictive as heroin. (Not that I have ANY experience with heroin. I do not,lol) I know in my case, at least, if the ONLY thing I received for Mother's Day were cloth diapers and accessories, I would be absolutely ecstatic! Over the moon, to be exact. There is nothing better than seeing my babies with cute little fluff-butts. And the variety of colors, prints and fabrics available are simply intoxicating. I am actually guilty of coordinating entire outfits around what diapers my babies happen to be wearing that day. Am I obsessed? Yeah, probably. But many of you are, too!
That's why I am super-excited to announce my next Mad About Mama sponsor, Zookies Diaper Covers & More. Zookies is a WAHM run shop that carries the absolute cutest diaper covers I have ever seen! There are so many adorable fabric choices that I had a very difficult time choosing one for my review. No, really! I spent over an hour looking at all the adorable possibilities before I finally settled on a cute, gender neutral print. With 2 babies, a girl and a boy, it just made sense. As much as I LOVED all of the feminine, girly prints that Zookies has to offer, I just could not justify eventually sticking Xander in a girl's diaper cover. The thought DID cross my mind, though, if only for a very brief moment!
These waterproof diaper covers fit over any prefold or fitted diaper. They are lined with PUL and feature a fun outer cotton shell. Soft fold over elastic binds the layers. A double row of snaps or hook and loop closure is available.
Just take a look at some of my personal favorites from Zookies!
Here is the diaper cover I received for my review. I just adore this print! It is adorable, unisex, and has attitude!
I received a One-Size cover to test. Notice the rows of snaps? These are used to "snap down" the cover to accommodate babies of all sizes, from 8-35 lbs! This means I can easily use it on both of my babies! I tried this cover out over both prefolds and fitted diapers. It definitely held in messes, and I have not had any leaks with my Zookies diaper cover! The nice thing about waterproof diaper covers is that as long as it doesn't get covered in poo, you can take out the wet prefold or fitted diaper, replace it with a dry one, and reuse the cover! Talk about convenient and economical!
Here are some photos of my Zookies diaper cover on both of my babies. It looks a bit bulky on Xander, but he only weighs about 12lbs (10.8 when the pics were taken) and he has prefolds under the diaper cover. It actually fit him well, and definitely contained messes! Sophie is about 23lbs. I just LOVE that these come in a one-size option and that both of my monsters can benefit from it!
Aren't these fantastic? And this is just a very small sampling of what Zookies has to offer! Not only do they carry these awesome diaper covers, they also carry bibs, burp cloths, reusable snack bags, and other goodies that are sure to please any mama!
And the BEST news of all is that Michele Zook, owner of Zookies, has been very generous and will be offering one of my readers a diaper cover of their choice during my Mad About Mama event!
You can check out Zookies and all they have to offer at their 2 shops:
