{Review & Giveaway} Zizzies and Izzies Fleece Diaper Soakers & Wipes - US & CA


I received two Zizzies and Izzies fleece covers, 2 cloth wipes & a hat for Colton in the mail.  I didn't tell Shelly what soakers, etc that I wanted.  She sent all suprises.  But, when I opened up the box, I told her she was stalking me!!! Totally our style =]  Guitars? Check. Monsters?  Total check! Rockets?  Oh yes.  Have you not seen Colton's crib set?  Well no you haven't.  But apparently Shelly is peeking in our window.  Totally Kidding! The hat was to die for!! I giggled forever because it reminds me of the guys in our family.  I said Hunters but my husband said it was jungle theme which, what do I know?  Leaves.  Deer hunting.  Hunting.  SHUT UP!!! Anyways,  my husband thought it was the cutest hat too! =]



I have used fleece jammies for "covers" in the winter time which worked for us in the past...  Expecially since I change Colton quite frequently.  So, he never leaked.  But I love these Zizzies and Izzies covers simply because, when its hot and muggy out, I can pair this BREATHABLE LEAK PROOF cover with a thin flat and it'll be like he's naked, airy & fresh! =]  OR else, for now, I have been tossing some BabyLegs on him with the fleece cover as another option.
The wipes ... those babies are HUGE {just shy of 9"}!!! The terry side picks up the poop like MAD!!! In one swift motion, his tooshie is clean!  Fold these bad boys in half to use the soft flannel side to finish wiping everything off .... DONE.  Just ... like .. THAT!

Price:  $8.00 for one fleece soaker / diaper cover.  Do I find this a huge deal?  Yes!!! Now, if you search around, I'm sure you can find soakers for $20, give or take.  Which is kudos for them, but $8.00 for a fleece soaker with adorable, squishy prints .. I'm down!
Wipes are $6 for a pack of 5 {two prints & three solids}.

Materials:  Well, there isn't much.  Super soft, cozy, squishy breathable, leakproof Winter Fleece on the Diaper covers / Fleece Soakers.  But the Cloth wipes are low pile terry on one side and flannel on the other.









Features:  Not too much that you wouldn't already know about either.  But you can use the fleece cover over a disposable diaper for either extra protection against leaks &/or a fashion factor .  Also, this cover is very trim.







Diaper Cover Sizing:  I got my almost 18 lbs Colton a size Medium.  Which fits him too perfect!  There is no gap on the legs or waist.  There shouldn't be.


His thighs are super chunky so its hard for me pull the cover over his thighs, but when we get it on, a nice snug fit.  Hey, I can't even pull any of his pants up past his thighs so this is no suprise for me.  But, Shelly goes by a more accurate sizing table.  Not pounds,  but moreso inches to get the perfect fit.

NB Waist 11 1/2 to 13 1/2" Thigh 5 to 7"
S Waist 13 to 15" Thigh 7 to 8"
M Waist 15 to 17" Thigh 9 to 10"
L Waist 17 to 19" Thigh 10 to 11"
XL Waist 19 to 20 1/2" Thigh 11 to 13"

Night Time fleece diaper cover?:  Yes for me.  Might be no to you.  It depends.  Fleece eventually gets damp on the outside.  Come on, its bound to happen!  Fleece can only hold so much & then you add on pressure from sitting or laying ... But, like I said, this is a night time cover for us.  I used a night time fitted and put the soaker over top.  Colton sleeps 12 hours straight.  He hardly pees during that time.  The fleece cover was damp on the outside and made his jammies slightly damp, but his fitted crib sheet was untouched.  NOT bad!  He does sleep on his back and does not roll over to sleep on his tummy.  But if he were a heavy wetter and a tummy sleeper, I wouldn't suggest using this cover at night.  But a cover like this is perfect for daytime wear!!! Cuteness factor and breathability factor.
I however did notice a leak when Colton was doing tummy time play.  I typically change him about 30 minutes after he nurses.  But this time, I tested this soaker out to the fullest.  He finally had a compression leak after 3 hours.  Nursed him twice, tummy time play, played in his jumper-oo, sitting up playing, etc etc .... I should have been on the ball and had already done at least one diaper change in three hours, but like I said ... testing the limits of this soaker.  I'm highly impressed.  =]  From now on I have been changing him during his typical routine and there is zero problems.  If you seem to experiece problems, you might have to look at your laundry routine.  I have done some research and some people have to switch up detergent or not even dry in the dryer.  But you may not have an issue to begin with because you never hear of any issues.

Laundry:  Soiled soaker &/or wipe goes in with the other dirty diapers / wipes.  I even dry them in the dryer on medium heat with everything else.  I typically only air out diaper goodies with elastic or PUL.   The soaker comes out soft each time while the wipes come out exactly just as perfect!

Score:  5/5.  The prices are awesome!! Prints are adorable!! Sizing is accurate.  Fit is perfect.  Laundry care is super easy.  There are no thumbs down.  I got what I expected and was needed in a fleece diaper cover.   As well as the huge wipes.  I love them! Super thin but does the job WELL!!!

Will I recommend them?:  Yes!

Where to buy:  Zizzies and Izzies Etsy Shop.   Use PASSIONS for a 15% discount off of anything over at Zizzies and Izzies for a whole entire month.  !!! .. But the code ends on May 24th. So HURRY!
