Zookiescrafts {#FluffyButtsHop}

When I'm at home with my daughter, I use mostly prefolds and flats to cloth diaper her.  I love the many options I have for covers; there are so many cute prints available.

I was thrilled when Michele Zook from Zookiescrafts {now known as Zookaboo} agreed to be one of the sponsors for the #FluffyButtsHop.  As I was browsing through her online shop, I noticed the mustache diaper cover and loved it. I wrote to Michele and commented that I loved this cover, but lamented the fact that I do not have a boy to put it on.  She replied back and stated she would be willing to sew the mustache cover using medium pink or magenta fabric if I wanted it. After consulting my husband and asked, "Would be weird to get this cover for Charis?", and he said, "No."  I jumped at Michele's offer.

Zookaboo sells many handmade items, including wetbags, cloth wipes, matching tee and diaper covers, minkee blankets, plus many more baby items.  Go look at Michele's shop.

I received a one size diaper cover with snaps to review. The outer layer is cotton and the inner layer is PUL. It has fold over elastic sewn around the outside, a four step rise, a double row of snaps at the tabs, crossover snaps, and hip snaps.  The one size cover has a 13-19 inch rise and fits approximately 10-35 pounds.

My thoughts: I loved the customer service I received from Michele. She quickly responded to e-mails.  I noticed she quickly responds to messages on her Facebook page as well.  I love the diaper I was sent and was pleased with Michele's suggestion to custom make it for my daughter.  The diaper worked overnight with a hemp prefold pad folded in to diaper.  There was no leaking or wicking the next morning.  I also like the diaper's trimness.  It fit my 30 lb., 36 in. daughter without any problems.  For us, this worked well with a flat diaper pad folded and placed in the cover.  I hope to buy from Zookaboo in the future.

    I do have one question though. What is with the mustashe thing?! I have seen lots of prints and I just don't get it. What am I missing?! LOL
