The fit was actually quite nice. It was easy to adjust to make for a snug fit but I have to tell you that there is a learning curve with snaps. Daddy tried this diaper without me giving him any directions and let’s just say the fit was not so snug…leaked all over the place! Thankfully he’s patient with my experiments and laughed at the incident.
The absorbency was very similar to the BGs. The only difference in the microfiber inserts is that the BGs have adjustable snaps on the insert itself while the Knicker Nappies do not. But don’t be afraid of this, you will learn (if you haven’t already) that it’s super easy to fold inserts to make the perfect fit. I used this diaper both during the day and at night and didn’t have a problem with leaking. It even held in a massive pooh episode!
The elastic is a little more gentle than the BGs. I was afraid that it might cause leakage but I haven’t found that to be the case. Instead I’ve learned that the elastic is called Lastin which is guaranteed for 2 years not to loose it’s elasticity. The guarantee is also good for the snaps!
What else can I say? Knicker Nappies come in 6 awesome colors including a really nice chocolate color and sell for $18.95 at Earth Angels Diaper Co (EADC). EADCis a cloth diaper online retailer based out of Brevard County, FL. If you are local (too bad I’m on the other coast of FL) EADC offers FREE delivery within 15 miles and will also conduct hands on demonstrations. I miss the free delivery from the store I bought mine at…now that they moved. EADC sells a variety of cloth diapers and accessories. If you are new to cloth diapering EADChas a great layaway plan and some amazing starter kits. And don’t forget the gift registry! The gift registry is actually how I got about 5 of my cloth diapers and I’m greatful for my friends for supporting my cloth diapering obsession!
Earlier I mentioned that I had 2 diapers that I don’t like or use. What do you do with those diapers you’ve purchased but don’t use? It seems like a waste to hold onto them right? Well I gave mine to a friend who is experimenting with cloth diapering BUT Earth Angel Diaper Co. will buy your stash! That’s right, EADC buys and sells used cloth diapers so you don’t have to feel like you’ve wasted your money.
