Overdue RAVE for Zookies Diaper Covers

As I mentioned earlier, I ordered an adorable diaper cover from Zookies, a store I'd never heard of before. Let me say I am completely impressed not only with the cover, but also with the customer service! Right off the bat, Michelle was so nice! For the first time I felt like I was dealing with a real person instead of a computer. She has responded quickly every time I've contacted her even though she's busy with her own children and with her business. Her kindness alone has made me a confirmed Zookies shopper!

She also sent me a free reusable snack bag along with my diaper cover. I'd never thought of using reusable snack bags before, but I love it! I use it pretty much every time we're in the car--I just fill it with pretzels or goldfish and give it to Gehrig. He can get it opened and closed all by himself and doesn't spill stuff all over the car. :)

Now for the diaper cover. Logan was at the top end of the medium weight range so I went ahead and bought a large. It's still big on him, but I was thinking ahead to his being able to wear it in the spring and summer when I don't have to put pants on over it! :) I really, really hate to hide this cute diaper. Unfortunately it is still big for him so he doesn't wear it much right now. :( However, when he has worn it, even though it's too big, it still has not leaked at all. The only issue I've had is that the top of the aplix seems to rub his tummy, but I'm pretty sure that's just because it is still too big. Michelle has been working hard to try to figure out a solution to this--she offered to make me another diaper at no charge! But I'm pretty sure once he grows into this one it won't be a problem any more.

I'm not sure what material it is, but I don't think it's PUL. Every other cover I had that wasn't PUL has wicked, but no wicking with this one! I'll admit I was slightly disappointed when I first got it and the outer was fabric--I expected not to be able to use it very much because it would wick. But I'm glad to say I was wrong!

Michelle was also awesome enough to let me test a one-size cover that she's working on. How cute is it??

It's also working great! I get a great fit with it over trifolded prefolds, snappied prefolds, flats, and fitteds. No leaks whatsoever! I am in love with this cover. :)
