La Petite Krott Creations - Bamboo Fitted Review

La Petite Krott Creations Bamboo Fitted Cloth Diaper
This super cute ocean wave diaper came from a super sweet mom all the way in Canada.  I can't believe she was able to get this diaper made and answer all my questions in time before her newest addition came to their family.  I bet her baby has the cutest bum on the block!  Well I know my little man does.  I really wish I lived at the beach with this diaper or at least a little bit closer.  This diaper reminds me of the ocean waves and it would look awesome on Linc while he plays in the water and sand.  Hopefully my little growing machine stops growing so fast so this diaper will fit him next summer when we hit up the beach again.

Performance Review:

Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥ - This diaper is pretty easy to use.  I love that it only has two snaps on each wing so snapping is a lot faster than most other fitted diapers.  I also love that this is a sized diaper so I don't have to worry about rise settings at all.  I will say that this diaper would be a lot easier if the diaper had more stretch though.  It would be easier to wrap and snap.

Adjustability & Fit: ♥♥♥♥♥ - This is a sized diaper so you really don't need to worry about adjustability, but even so I do like the adjustability of the soaker.  You can easily switch it up to use one or both soakers.  The fit of this diaper seems ok.  It fits well on the waist as well as the legs, but there really isn't a lot of stretch to it which is weird since this is a knit fabric.  I'm also thinking that Linc might need to move up to the next size since he's so chunky. That might be the problem.  Tester #2 had a problem with the stretch as well.

Leak Protection: ♥♥♥♥♥ - The absorbency on this diaper is average.  I tested this diaper out during the day without a cover several times and after Linc pee'ed the diaper would feel wet or soaked on the outside.  Not a problem if you're keeping a close watch on your child's bum at home, but my husband didn't appreciate getting wet sometimes.  Haha!  It did work well at night though.  Both testers were able to use this diaper the entire night with a PUL cover and had no leaks at all.  **UPDATE: The owner is going to start using a much more heavy duty bamboo fleece for the soakers in her diapers so they will be much more absorbent**

Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥♥ - This diaper is ok as far as wash routine.  I just leave the soakers snapped in, throw it in the wash, and then throw it in the dryer.  This saves me the time of hunting down and snapping my soaker back in when the wash is done.  I will say that this diaper did take awhile to dry though.  On average it took about 105 minutes in the dryer.

Bang For The Buck: ♥♥♥♥♥ - These diapers are pretty average in price for a WAHM fitted diaper.  They are sized though so you will need to size up when you're baby grows.  She does have a OS diaper though.

Quality & Durability: ♥♥♥♥♥ - For the most part this diaper seems pretty good as far as quality and durability.  There was a little uneven stitching on the top, but nothing really noticeable.  My main problem was with the snaps.  They weren't lined up straight on the front panel  and the snaps on the wing didn't match up with the snaps on the front panel.  The snaps on the wings were too close together to snap the snaps every other snap, but too far apart so I got a little bulge snapping every snap.  This could easily be fixed by the seamstress on her snap pattern.  *After analyzing this again I think it's not that the snaps don't line up... it's just that there really isn't any stretch so it's hard to pull the wings to the second snap. **UPDATE: The owner is going to revise her snap pattern to remedy some of the snap problems**

The Look: ♥♥♥♥ -  I like the look of these diapers.  She has some really cute prints available and I like the way the legs and back ruffle.  I also like the trim design.  The print I have reminds me of the ocean.

In Conclusion:
I would recommend these diapers to those looking for a super cute diaper in a custom sized fit.  I can't wait to see the upcoming changes that the owner has in store for us.  She's going to be updating the snap design as well as the absorbency.

    1. Thanks so much for giving me the chance to do a review. I love testing out new fluff and can't wait to hear about the new tweaks that you make. Linc loves his ocean waves diaper.

  4. Great review! I would love to see the one size version.

  5. Cute diaper, I like that there are only 2 snaps on the wings. I love snaps but get annoyed when I have to do 6 of them up on a wiggly baby.
