Gorgeous & Green~Monkey Doodlez Review & #Giveaway Surprise #FallingIntoFluff


Tates is down for his nap in my favorite AIO diaper and the diaper is sized!  Yep you read right, we found the first sized diaper that actually fits Tates!  Baby boy has always broken the mold when it comes to cloth diapers, he has never really been in the 'guidelines' of fit and measurements so we have always stuck to one sized and this was also my selling point to my husband.....one sized means we can use them on the next baby too.  Little did I know when I made this promise to him that even though we have big babies we might still have to get sized diapers even if only for newborns.



Christy the founder of Gorgeous & Green is a veteran to cloth diapering with three children through cloth diapers now; her third right from the start.  She started Gorgeous & Green as an online only store in April 2009 with some very simple goals of providing families with great personal service, and an assortment of quality products.  I know I have received great service and after one trip to her website you will see she offers a wide variety of great green products.

Christy sent me a Rose colored Micro Doodlez AIO in size ML which has size guidelines as follows; waist 16-26", legs 9-14", rise 18" and weight 24-35+ pounds.  The diaper has Monkey Doodlez tape (hook and loop) closure with a crossover tab which is always nice in my opinion.  The inner lining is a super soft non-pill microfleece that matches the soft pink outside color.  Hidden inside is a full layer of heavy weight cotton flannel for added absorbency and breathability along with a securely attached multi layer thick and thirsty cotton terry soaker pad that is sewn in as well.  I really love the generous tunny tabs that wrap around baby's belly and make sure there is nothing but soft fleece against the belly. My favorite part of this diaper is that is is all natural fibers!  It is hard to find an all natural fiber AIO diaper at least in my search I haven't come across many.  This diaper is definitely very daddy (or any other caregiver) friendly as it is super easy to put on and quick with a wiggly kicking toddler.






This diaper is super absorbent and fits Tates very well, honestly I reach for it every time it is clean and wish I had more!  There is one small downside and I think it comes with the territory of being and AIO, it does take a bit longer to dry.  I hang dry almost all my diapers and toss the inserts in the dryer however with this one I do toss it in with the inserts and when they are done sometimes the elastic are is still a little damp so I hang it to finish drying.  I will take a super absorbent all natural fiber diaper that has a longer drying time any day in this case though!








Buy It:
