Want to try a So Simple cloth diaper cover? I did!

Covers/Wool, Reviews

** CONTEST CLOSED! CONGRATULATIONS, LISA AND EMILY! **

When I did my research for the best cloth diapers for nighttime I noticed that many of you love the So Simple covers.  I felt a little left out :(

Was I missing out on a cloth diaper cover that would change my life??  Um…Not likely, but I still wanted to try it.

I contacted LeAnn of Gigglebritches to see if she would be interested in a So Simple review.  She graciously sent me one to try and one of you will win one too!

The fit of the So Simple cover is a little clownish.  I’m okay with clownish if it performs well.

You can cut down on the clown look by ordering on the small end.  I ordered a medium for Sterling and it was huge! LeAnn swapped it for me and the small fits much better.

As expected, the cover performed well.  I haven’t had many PUL covers that didn’t hold in everything.  Good for me (only for review purposes), Sterling had a monster poo and it escaped the diaper.  Thankfully it did not come out of the So Simple cover.

So why would you want to buy a So Simple cover if it’s just like any other PUL cover?

  1. The fleece waist and legs.  Imagine how much more comfortable that is for baby than tight elastic!
  2. The So Simple cover can be used as a pull-up cover, then if necessary — like the poop incident– can be unsnapped.

Are there any disadvantages to the So Simple cover?

The fleece holds a urine smell so I wash it after nighttime use.  That is the only time I have used it.  Daytime use may allow for multiple uses. Also, size may be an issue for some.  Sterling is clearly in the medium size range, however, the small fits much better.

I can’t imagine that there is a cloth diaper that wouldn’t work with a So Simple cover.  With generous room, even the poofiest nighttime cloth diaper booty would fit.

I am very grateful for LeAnn offering to give away a So Simple to one of my readers.  Here’s how to enter:

**PLEASE use separate comments IF you want more than one entry.  If not then put all your entries in one comment ;)

  1. Enter your name and what size So Simple you think your baby needs
  2. Tell me what product LeAnn carries at Gigglebritches that you would like to try (besides the So Simple).
  3. Refer a friend to All About Cloth Diapers.  I trust you so just let me know you’ve spread the word.  My goal with this blog is to make cloth diapering as easy as possible for everyone.

~God Bless~

    I am interested in trying So Simple (newborn). I was 18 when I had my first child now we are having twins due 04/20/10 and today I turned 31. Revisiting cloth diapers, there seems to be so many more choices out there. Your web site has been very helpful to navigate through the maze. Estimating 140 cloth diapers used per week, I feel it is most important to take steps to protect the earth for our future(our children) and what a better way! I am also interested in the Planet Wise Wet bags (medium or large) for when we are on the go to store soiled cloth diapers. Thanks so much!

    I think my son would be a small in So Simple, but I’d go for a medium because he’s growing very fast!

    A different product I’d like to try would be Tiny Tush Elite or Bumgenius.

    I would love to try the so simple but not to cover diapers. We are in the potty training stage now. It seems great that we can remove them from the side. It is hard enough to remove “big boy undies” without having to worry about the cover also…any other suggestions for the best potty training? This is my grandson, so it is a little different from over 20 years ago when I had my girls. Cloth is still the best.

    thanks,

Especially those who are looking into trying cloth for the first time. I have learned so much and you make using cloth so easy!!! I know you said to go smaller with the size of the So Simple, but my almost 10 month old is 22 lbs so I think I need the large.
