This is my first time featuring a WAHM made product on my blog and I am very excited about it. With a nudge from her sister-in-law, Adrianna started out by selling her diapers on Facebook before opening her Etsy store, AdriannaKnits. She started out crocheting and then was taught the very basics of knitting and sewing from her grandmother. Adrianna does not use patterns for her diapers and what she has come up with is pretty unique. She sent me a very cute Dr. Seuss fitted diaper to review (along with a set of wipes that the lucky winner of the #FluffyButts giveaway will receive)
A side snapping fitted with a snap down rise? Yes!
This fitted diaper is made of a cotton flannel outer layer with a hidden layer of microfleece, a bamboo soaker, and a soft bamboo inner. There is an additional snap in organic cotton and bamboo soaker.
This diaper is very soft, thick and cushy and the leg elastics are well cushioned under fabric and didn’t cause any red marks. I use fitteds exclusively for overnight diapering and this diaper held up very well for 12-13 hours
What I really like most about this diaper are the side snaps. I have been really into side snapping diapers lately but haven’t seen it in a fitted before
There are three waist snaps
As well as a three step rise. In my experience rise snaps aren’t all that common in fitted diapers and I’m not sure why. I like having the versatility.
I wasn’t able to get any “on the butt” photos of this diaper since K wears it overnight. I was going to try to put it on during the day just for photos and then I had a battle with yeast and we were out of cloth for a little while so the photo session never happened.
Overall I like this diaper. At 19 months and about 25½ pounds K wears this on the second waist setting and the rise snaps are out all the way. This is in keeping with most of his other diapers. He is usually between the medium and large settings on diapers so he can go either way with the rise. The flannel did pill a bit after washing but that’s what flannel does. There really isn’t any getting around that! My only complaint with this diaper is that it takes a LONG time to dry! It always has to go in for an extra half hour or so after everything else is dry. But that is also a testament to how absorbent this diaper is so it’s a trade-off that I am willing to accept.
*Note: I just read on Adrianna’s site that she is no longer making fitted diapers but she is still making AI2 diapers. I love the fabrics that she has chosen to work with
She also has some really cute crocheted items in her store as well
You can buy a custom AI2 diaper, cloth wipes or a knitted item from $7.00 – $30.00 from AdriannaKnits Etsy shop
