Give it away Friday: LolliDuo Diapers!

Stinky is a heavy wetter.  Very heavy.  Particularly at night.  He's been in cloth diapers for almost a year, now (I know, hard to believe!) and I have yet to find the "perfect" nighttime diaper for the little guy.  I don't even care if it has to be so bulky that he looks like he's wearing a basketball in his pants!  It doesn't matter to me, as long as he doesn't wake up soaking wet!

The Scoop

In 2004, two women met by chance in an online attachment parenting forum.  They were both discontent with the diapering options out there, and set out to create their own perfect diaper.  After searching and researching they discovered that the "perfect" cloth diaper fabric would be one that was truly recyclable, sustainable,and gentle on the skin.  What better recyclable material is there than plastic bottles?  Since the couldn't diaper their babies in plastic bottles, they decided to use recycled fleece made from those bottles!  Not only is fleece soft and gently, but it leaves baby's skin feeling dry as can be!  After playing with a lot of names, the two settled on LolliDoo!

Alison, one of the founding mamas at LolliDoo, graciously agreed to send me a newly named LolliDuo to test, particularly to see if it would solve our overnight issues!


The Good

The squish factor.  The LolliDuo is THE softest diaper I have ever felt!  I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that when I first opened the package I was on the phone with my sister, and I said to her, "I wish my underwear were this soft!  I want to wear this diaper!"  She may not remember that, but I wrote it down.  It's true.  They're SO soft next to Stinky's bum!


The absorbency.  I was sent three Organic Innies to go along with my LolliDuo.  They're thin.  Super thin.  So I wasn't sure they'd work.  They do!  During the day I typically use one or two innies, depending on what we're doing.  Overnight I use all three.  I have NEVER had a leak.  No once.  I'm always excited when it's diaper laundry day, because it means I get to use the LolliDuo again!

The adjustability.  The LolliDuo is a one size diaper with a great, unique adjustment system.  There is elastic with buttons inside the diaper to adjust the height.  The waist is adjustable with the velcro.  I have to admit, I didn't even THINK to adjust the height for stinky until yesterday.  It was set on the factory-standard setting.  Yesterday, though, I got looking and discovered that I could make it longer!  I still don't have it as big as it gets, and he's 18 months, 26 pounds.  I think that's great!  He's got plenty of room to grow!


The cute factor.  LolliDuos are adorable!  They're fluffy.  They're everything you'd expect in a cloth diaper.

The Bad

Pilling.  This is a silly thing to note as "bad."  They're fleece, right?  You know what happens when you wash fleece?  It pills.  The LolliDuo acts like fleece.  End of story.


The Outcome

I am in love.  I have found my nighttime solution!  In the LolliDuo, Stinky's jammies stay dry all night!  He wakes up happy and I don't have to pick up an icky smelly baby in the morning.  It's a little fluffier than some of my other diapers, so I have to be more careful about what pants go over the top, but it's exactly what we've needed!  I highly, HIGHLY recommend the LolliDoo LolliDuo for anyone, but especially if you have difficult overnight wetting issues!  Way to go, LolliDoo!  You've made this mama (and her little sweetie) very happy!

Oh, and I think I entered wrong (I left my answer on the rafflecopter thing), but for the item I really like on LolliDoo's website, I am *really* interested in the nursing pads and the mama cloth after hearing how squishy the diaper is!
