It’s no secret that I love cloth diapers. Ok, so I may be just a tad addicted, but really, what cloth diaperin’ mama isn’t!? When I began to think about using cloth, the only kind I knew about were the Gerber prefolds and rubber pants that are sold at Walmart. Little did I know, my initial, innocent research into this subject wound up giving me a new hobby!
Just in case you’ve been living under a cloth diapering rock… I’ll tell you a bit about Knickernappies! They are a wonderful company (owned by a Mama & Papa) based in Oregon, who pride themselves in the fact that everything they sell is made within the USA! They make two lines of diapers (the OneSize and Custom Fit) with three types of inserts (Microfiber, Hemp, and their very own Loopy Do inserts). I got the chance to review a Knickernappies Custom Fit diaper!
We already have a Knickernappies OneSize in our stash that we love. The side snaps on their diapers are unique and really give a trim fit. The only issue that I have with this diaper (and pretty much all other One-Size diapers) is the bulkiness in the front where the diaper snaps down to make it larger/smaller. This is the main reason that I love the Custom Fit! It fits exactly the same way as my One Size, but with no bulkiness in the front!
One issue that I have with most cloth diapers is that they tend to run small. Sophia is getting ready to move up to the largest rise on her BGs, which concerns me that they definitely will not last until potty training. How are the Knickernappies on size? Check out the picture below. The Knickernappies OS is still snapped at it’s smallest setting… and look at the great fit of the Custom Fit diaper… no bulkiness at all!
I have no doubt that my Knickernappes OneSize will last through potty training and that when she outgrows the Medium Custom Fit (which will be awhile…) a Large will definitely fit until then, as well.
Why I Love the Knickernappies Custom Fit Diaper: I’ve mentioned the trimness, but it’s extremely important to us, CD mamas. I also love the colors they offer in this diaper… omg! Another unique feature of this diaper is the fact there is elastic at the back and the front of the diaper to make sure everything stays where it’s supposed to… inside of the diaper. I will definitely be investing in more of the Custom Fits!
