One thing I love about cloth diapers is the cuteness factor and it’s even better when you can really personalize a diaper to the personality of your lil one (or yoursef, hehe). And so when I stumbled upon an awesome etsy shop that specializes in OS pocket diapers with a huge selection of prints and embroidery options I was in love. That etsy shop is none other than – Jolimini! Jolimini is owned by Janie Pelletier and operates out of Trois-Rivieres, Canada. Janie is the mom of two little girls (just like me!) and entered the cloth diapering world when her oldest was one month old. After cloth diapering for a while she decided to start making her own for the fun of it – SO glad she did – and now offers them to everyone. Janie’s goal is for her diapers to be in constant evolution so that she is always offering the best to babies and their mommas. After you check out Jolimini diapers I am sure you will want to add some to your stash too.
I chose to review the pink giraffe diaper. Jolimini diapers are made with PUL on the outside so they are waterproof and microfleece on the inside. They fit from approximately 8 to 35 pounds – truly a one size diaper! The only thing that took me some getting used to is that Jolimini diapers snap on the side. This is the only diaper I have that snaps on the side so it takes me a bit longer to put on then my others. I do see this as a perk when Sugar gets older and begins wanting to take her dipes off since it will be much harder for her to reach the snaps then on a front snapping diaper.
The pocket stuffs from the front which I really like because poopy messes tend to stay near the back of the diaper. This way shaking the insert out results in much less mess. The pocket opening is also generously sized so even big hands won’t have a problem stuffing this diaper. Now speaking of stuffing Jolimini sells Bamboo One Size Inserts. The diaper does not come with this insert – you must purchase them separately. The insert is composed of 2 pieces that snap together. When your munchkin is little you can use the larger piece separately and fold it into thirds which will give you 6 layers of absorbency. As your little one grows snap the 2nd piece on and fold the insert in half which gives you 6 layers of absorbency as well! I absolutely love the bamboo inserts – they seem to absorb much much M.U.C.H. more than my microfiber inserts. Not to mention they don’t hold the stink like microfiber does. Definitely night time worthy!
I love how the Jolimini diaper fits Sugar – now that she is so active it is super important that her diapers have a good snug fit around her chunky thighs and this does the trick. She’s just too stinkin cute!
