You guys! I have ANOTHER amazing hybrid fitted cloth diaper I think you are gonna love! Boogie Bear Creations are made by Melissa Boisvert, a Vermont-based work-at-home-mom of 4! My friend Abbie was kind enough to try this diaper out on her daughter Trixie. She was very impressed to say the least!
Abbie received a Boogie Bear Creations size 2 fleece “Sleepy” nighttime diaper with an additional booster. Melissa from Boogie Bear Creations also included a stay dry liner, a wipe and body butter, which could be used as a cloth diaper safe bum cream. Products were received for review purposes. All opinions and statements made are honest and true.
This print is a custom that was made in the BB Creations Custom Studio, Boogie Bear Creations’ group on Facebook. In addition to the Fleece ‘Sleepy’ Extended Wear Hybrid Fitted Abbie received, group members can create and purchase custom hybrid fitted cloth diapers in newborn, size 1 (10-20 lbs), and size 2 (15-35 lbs) as well as custom undies, raglan tees, shorties, camisole tops for kids, and more!
Right out of the package, this diaper looked impressive. It did have a bulky feel to it with all the inserts snapped inside. Although that is pretty typical of fitteds that are intended for nighttime use. The diaper and the inserts are exceptionally well-made. It is obviously that serious time and effort has gone into making them.
Until now, I have always been a bit skeptical of using a fleece diaper. So as lovely as the diaper looked, I was unsure that it could actually hold up as a nighttime diaper.
Outer is 100% polyester fleece. Hidden layer 100% polyester. Inner layer 100% Polyester. Soaker/Boosters: 1.) 70% Viscose Bamboo, 30% Organic cotton. 2.) 70% Viscose from Bamboo, 27% organic cotton, 3% Spandex, and 3.) 100% Polyester. Stay Dry liner is fleece on one side and wicking jersey on the other. (Note from Jenn: I really like wicking jersey as a stay dry fabric! The only thing I’ve found is it seems to stain more easily. But that is a non issue really. Just a little sun and the stain is gone!)
We got the diaper on March 11. Trixie is long and lean. She just turned 2 in March and weighs 25 lbs. She was probably 23 lbs and was still wearing 18 month clothes. She’s now wearing 24 month clothing but some pants are still very big in the waist.
This diaper has no traditional rise settings. Instead there is a unique closure of two rows of waist snaps which are also used to adjust the rise. Melissa, the owner of Boogie Bear Creations, calls the closure a Double Snap Rise. It allows a good fit from approximately 15-35 pounds. The top row is for bigger babies and the lower row is for smaller ones. Here’s a quick video Melissa made to demonstrate how to get a good fit.
Trixie is still on the lower row of waist snaps and the flaps overlap just enough for one snap. There is plenty of room to grow in this diaper.
Things I love…
The Boogie Bear Creations Sleepy Diaper appears to be bulletproof.
We have been using it in our nighttime diaper rotation consistently since we got it. It is now one of my go-to night diapers. We also sometimes use it for naps. But I prefer it for night simply because it hasn’t leaked at all. I usually put a wool cover over it, but honestly, with all the inserts inside and the hidden windpro fleece layer, I think you could easily get away without a cover. I just do it out of habit.
After two months of solid use, there is no pilling, none of the stitching has come undone, and the colors are still bright.
I love the inserts because you can either add them all or change the number to adjust based on how much absorbency you need.
