Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Londonware Fleece Soaker #fluffyxmas

Londonware Fleece Soaker #fluffyxmas

Before I review the soaker I received from Londonware, this was my first time using fleece, and I was a wee bit nervous and fearful.  Yet, I wanted to try a fleece cover because I've heard people rave about fleece soakers and longies-both of which are sold at Londonware.  Thankfully, my fears were unfounded.

Londonware is run by, Wendy, a SAHM who currently has two children and is expecting her third.  She sells fleece covers, longies, shorties, and skirties in her shop, as well leg warmers, snack bags, and reusable gift bags.  Wendy also will do custom orders if you do not see something in her Etsy shop that you want, see her anti pill fleece prints and other fleece prints.

As I already wrote, I had no reason to be afraid.  I was sent a large fleece cupcake cover to review.  My mother in law who was visiting when I received it, remarked to me, "It's SO soft."  The first thing I noticed was the cute print, and the second thing was she had an extra piece of fleece sewn into the wet zone.  I immediately put in on my daughter at night.  There was no leaking overnight!!  It fit well over her flat diapers and prefolds, but not over her fitted diapers [which are a slightly more bulky].  But this was my fault, I measured my daughter over a prefold and forgot to take into account the bulkiness of our fitted diapers.  So, keep this in mind if you buy from Wendy, measure your son or daughter over one of their bulkier diapers.

A few things I like about fleece are its breathability, cost [it's less expensive than wool], and ability to be laundered without special care.  Wendy recommends that you launder inside out to prevent the fleece from pilling.

and all opinions are my own.
