Harper is now nine months old, I feel like time is moving way too fast. We celebrated by taking her to her very first movie! We chose a matinee at the Tampa Theatre (a beautiful historic landmark) where I knew the audio would not be very loud and I sat near the back corner where I could make a run for it if she started to cry. American Graffiti was showing and she loved the man playing the old organ before the film and all the people clapping for him. She spent the majority of the movie nursing or sleeping and I’d say it was a smash success. I don’t plan on taking her to any action movies or evening flicks but I do intend to check out local “Mommy matinees” where the audio is lowered and babies are welcomed as she demonstrated she could stay in my lap for the duration without complaint. I’m very excited by the prospect of going to movies again, I used to go often but have been only three times in the last twelve months and miss it a lot.
Today I’m reviewing a Kiwi Pie made right here in the USA (appropriate considering we recently celebrated Independence Day) using materials that were also milled here.Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩✩
These fitteds come with two four-layer soakers that snap together for ease of use. They lay in the diaper, and though I had issues with a previous diaper soaker that was lay in style, this soaker is contoured and cut in such a way that it stays put perfectly and never shifts out of place. The diaper has a nice amount of stretch to it, making it easy to get that snug fit even on a wiggly baby.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩
The price for a Kiwi Pie is $27.00 which can be a little on the higher side. But what you’re paying for is a high quality handmade-in-the-USA diaper that will meet all your needs and then some. I’d happily add more of these to my stash at that price, and I already have my eye on several of their adorable prints.
This diaper is made with 50% Micromodal/50% pima cotton and is very absorbent, yet surprisingly trim for a fitted diaper. In Harper’s picture she is wearing both soakers yet the diaper is as trim as her pockets. I’ve found that one soaker will easily carry her through for two or three hours, and both snapped together is perfect with a wool cover for overnights. We haven’t had any leaks with this diaper, it’s wearing very well, and I’m surprised every time I wash it how soft it still is. Micromodal is more resistant to minerals from hard water, and living in Florida means we have extremely hard water. I use a special detergent that is made for washing diapers in hard water, but none of my diapers have consistently remained so soft.
The Kiwi Pie has a two step rise, it sits lower than many of her diapers but seems to fit her frame very well. In fact, I think this is the best fitting of any diaper we’ve tried, which is something I never thought I’d say about a fitted. It is cut like it was made for her, and I’ve never seen any red marks on her thighs. I don’t know if it will fit smaller or larger babies as well as it fits her, but personally I’m thrilled with it. This diaper rated to fit 10-30+ lbs, and while the coverage areas will definitely be different than other diapers on a 30+ lb babe, I do think it will still cover what it needs to and remain a favorite of ours.Overall:
These diapers are a wonderful addition to your stash. Trim and pretty, soft and strong, everything you could want in a fitted and more. Some of my friends have never used a fitted, and I would strongly suggest a couple of these to get you started. The quality is top notch and I smile every time I reach for it.
