My Diaper Addiction - Sized Fitted Review

My Diaper Addiction Sized Fitted Cloth Diaper
You Rock!  No, You Rule!  Oh how some diapers can be so funny, but so true!  This diaper totally rocks and rules!  Back in the day (LOL! ... about 9 months ago) you would have seen me struggle like crazy with side snaps.  Oh how I hated them.  They've since became a great friend of mine.  There are less snaps to worry about than most fitted diapers and no wing droop to fear from the lack of additional snaps.  The fit is trim cut and the front is nice and clean.  I'm so so on the addition of the elastic on the front, but it doesn't really bother me.  I guess I could go either way.  Anyways, I love this diaper.  Read on to find out more about it.

Performance Review:

Ease Of Use: ♥♥♥♥ - I find this diaper very easy to use, but if you would have asked me a few months back I would have said that side snaps were just a bit too complicated for my taste.  I've grown to love them and find them super easy now.  I also don't have to worry about any snap down rise settings or a fold down rise since this is a sized diaper.  I like that the petal soaker is short so I don't have to mess with folding it over to fit when putting the diaper on.  Everything about this diaper is just so easy for me.

Adjustability & Fit: ♥♥♥♥♥ - I LOVE the fit of this diaper and tester #2 loved it too.  I used to have a problem with side snaps, but now they're quite easy for me to use and I see how great of a fit you can get from them since it's so easy to control both the waist and the legs independently.  This is also a sized diaper so you get a much more customized fit than a one-size diaper.  The only issue I see is that the front bulks out a bit, but this is already an issue that the owner is working on (most likely making the soaker just a bit shorter).   It may also just be the look of side snaps.  You don't have the wings to pull the front of the diaper in.  I tried both the large and medium on Linc.  He still fits in the medium but the large gives him a much more comfortable roomy fit.  *Update*  The new soaker design is here!  It's now a little shorter, a little skinner up front, and a little bigger in the back.  Awesome!

Leak Protection: ♥♥♥♥♥ - This diaper is pretty average on leak protection.  It's usually wet after Lincoln pees, but not soaked.  I wonder if adding a hidden layer of poly fleece would help keep this diaper drier longer, or would it just bulk the fit up too much?  Either way I still don't have a problem letting Linc go around the house without a cover.  This diaper also worked great for both testers during the night with no leaks.  *Please note: This diaper does need a cover to be waterproof.*

Wash Routine: ♥♥♥♥♥ - Washing this diaper is pretty simple.  I don't have to worry about hook and loop closures and while I could unsnap the soaker, I usually just leave it attached.  The awesome part about this diaper?  It actually dries pretty fast.  This diaper usually dries within my first dry time of 75 minutes.

Bang For The Buck: ♥♥♥♥♥ - The price is about average for a WAHM fitted diaper.  Shipping is just a bit higher than average due to it coming from Canada, but I think it's all worth it.  This is also a sized diaper so you will only be using it for a short period of time before you move to the next size.

Quality & Durability: ♥♥♥ - The first diaper I received was damaged a little by a nicked sewing needle, but the second diaper was perfect.  All sewing lines were perfect and the quality of the materials was great too.

The Look: ♥♥♥♥ -  I really like the look of this diaper.  It's compact so it doesn't make Linc's butt look huge.  It also has a nice clean front since it's a side snapping diaper.  I also love all her cute print options and color coordinating interior lining and snaps.  Like I said before though, this diaper does create a bit of a bump in the front, but it it doesn't really bother me.

In Conclusion:
I LOVE this diaper!  I would totally buy another one.  Being in the US, I do wish shipping from Canada was cheaper, but I think for this diaper it's worth it.  I love the fit, I love the side snaps, and I love the prints.  I also think that although this isn't the most waterproof diaper, it still lasts long enough that I can keep Linc in just the fitted diaper without a cover around the house.  How could anyone cover up such a cute diaper???

  1. I'm a huge MY Diaper Addiction fan, though I've got the older style before the front elastic was added -I was interested to see that update. I love these diapers for absorbency and trimness, and of course super-cute prints and quality work. Some of my fastest-drying fitteds too amazingly enough, and the stay soft even after a year of use!

  2. I tried my diaper addiction with my last baby and really liked the quality. I sold my stash then, but would love to try it again!

  3. I never knew the purpose of side snaps until now! I like that they give the option of different settings for legs and waist.

  4. These look neat! I have a side-snapping wool cover, but would love to try a side-snapping diaper!
