This is a diaper unlike any other I have seen in terms of the way you put it on your kid. It has some pretty serious hook closures that allow for a custom fit. Tiny baby? No problem? Roly-poly baby? No problem! This diaper is built for babies from 4-40 pounds. That’s the largest range I’ve ever seen on a diaper!The diaper has a pocket for stuffing the soaker into it. I thought that the opening of the pocket was a little bit on the small side, so it takes me a little bit longer to get the inserts into this diaper than with my other pocket diapers. I LOVE the inner lining, which is velour. There must be nothing more luxurious than peeing and pooping on super soft velour! 🙂 Velour also does a great job of wicking away moisture, so it is luxurious and functional.
In addition to the custom fit along the waist, it also has four rise settings so that this diaper can be used from birth through potty training. I think this is an ideal diaper to purchase when your baby isn’t yet squirmy during diaper changes. That way, you can practice the hook closures and be an expert at it by the time you have to chase after your baby during a diaper change. Learning how to use the hooks right now, when Darah is constantly rolling around, is a bit of a challenge. If I had this diaper 3 months ago, that probably would have been perfect. There is a tutorial on the website, and once I watched it (why didn’t I do that as soon as I got the diaper?), the hooks became easy as pie. The diaper isn’t completely intuitive to use, but you only need to be shown once, and then you’ve got it. If you don’t like the hooks, they also have snaps available!
Here’s a picture that breaks down how to put these diapers on your baby.
One thing that is really great about this diaper is that Darah isn’t going to be able to take it off. She’s already starting to figure out how to pull at the velcro fasteners on her other diapers. I predict some trouble in the coming months… Still, these diapers are a bit tricky, even for me. That’s a negative for this diaper because it takes me longer to get it on, but also a positive because it ISN’T coming off once I get it on her!
