Baby Shower:CD: Kissaluvs

One thing that I will be doing differently this time around is dabbling in wool! With Caden, I used all PUL covers, but recently I've been bitten by the fall longies bug, and have ordered both boys a few pairs of longies each. I cannot wait for them to arrive!

I've been reading all that I can in anticipation of these cute new covers, and have come to the conclusion that fitteds work the best under wool... and that KL0s (Kissaluvs size 0s) are a favorite for newborns. So that is a combination that we will be testing out! Kissaluvs sent me a KL0 to try out with Parker, but seeing as he is not here yet, I haven't been able to test it. I will let you know a bit about them though!

KL0s fit from aproximately 5-15 lbs and require a cover, as they do not feature a waterproof layer. You can tell that the fitted is a size 0 by it's light brown stitches. (The other sizes feature rainbow stitching.)

"The v2.0 Kissa’s now feature microfiber soakers instead of cotton terry. Since the soaker is hidden, you will not feel or see any difference in the soaker, except the marked increase in absorbency. The v2.0 have rainbow serging in the Size 1 and 2 diapers and light brown in Size 0, to help you differentiate the from the original.
Kissaluvs diapers are known for quality fabrics and terrific fit. Our diaper fabrics are custom-made for us right here in the USA, including our wonderfully soft, absorbent, and durable cotton fleece.

Helpful "ingredients" you will find in Kissaluvs diapers:




  • Beautifully textured fabrics to help contain even the runniest poop
  • Fabric options, including unbleached cotton fleece and organic cotton with hemp, as well as gorgeous Limited Edition diapers of various colors and trims
  • Stretchy elastic and fabrics for a snug fit without binding
  • Elastic at leg and back openings to contain messes and floods
  • Sturdy polyacetal resin snaps... easy access for parents, not so easy for curious toddlers
  • Uniquely spaced adjustable wing snaps ... snap consecutively or over three snaps depending on your baby's build
  • Overlapping wings on the larger sizes to fit even thin babies
  • Unique fit with low-rise front and full coverage in back
  • Simplicity of design, especially popular with dads and babysitters!
  • See our fitted diapers on babies!
  • Pair with our Marvels Diaper Cover for a leak-proof fit."

I'd love to try these because they look like they would actually fit a newborn (the KL 0's anyway). I need some fitteds for our baby due in February!

Arrived here from Emily's tweet. I'm expecting a baby this spring. Our stash includes a lot of one-size from previous pregnancies but would like something that fits a smidge better.
The name is also super cute!

I'd love to try one of these because I've discovered that I really like a fitted diaper with a cover. It is easier than a prefold but gives the same versatility and ability to use the cover more than once. These look wonderfully soft and absorbent!

I'd love to try these because grandma is suddenly having trouble getting the prefolds in the covers. I think these would be easier for her.
