You can see from both the above illustration, as well as my photo that there is also a built in gusset around the legs. I find that with this type of PUl that isnt’ stretchy, some other diapers end up with a gap around the legs that can lead to messes. But, with the extra leg gussets, it’s not something you’ll have to worry about since the cover is still able to fit snugly around baby’s leg and contain everything. There is a snap in the front as well as the back to securely snap in your insert choice.
Nicki’s Diapers offers the choice of a stay-dry microfiber insert or their organic hemp/cotton blend insert. Microfiber doesn’t seem to work well on our daughter’s bum so I chose the 5 layer hemp/cotton inserts as a more natural fiber option. The inserts come in different sizing options as well, so please keep that in mind when you’re using them or you’ll do what I did this morning and feel like and idiot.
I forgot that I ordered the small inserts to use for the new baby and snapped one in to use for my toddler this morning. Of course, it was also right after she woke up so she pooped, then filled it with pee and it did end up leaking. It seriously took me a good hour before I realized my mistake and I certainly don’t feel like the smartest person on the planet right now. Haha. But, I’m able to laugh at myself and we were at home so it was really no big deal. Plus, if it hadn’t been for the poop getting on the cover, I still could’ve wiped it clean and reused it again. Of course, I would’ve used it with an insert that was actually meant for a toddler, not a newborn. =)
When I used it as a cover with our fitted diapers, it really extended the amount of time I was able to keep her in the diaper. I like to go for maximum times when I test out a diaper and I usually let her stay in them until they are pretty wet, unless of course she has a rash or something. Our fleece hybrid fitted diapers last about 4- hours depending on what my toddler has had to eat and drink during the day. With the waterproof cover the same diapers were able to go 6- 8 hours and it is something we love to use for overnight to reinforce the diapers we use.
Just when you think this diaper has it all, here’s one more little gem of information from their site to get you excited.
