I came across this product called Socks On while browsing Amazon one day. It is a slip on cover for baby socks to keep itty bitty babies from rubbing their chubby little feet together and wiggling their socks off. I thought it looked like something that could help deter Everett from taking his own socks on and bought a pair.
When I opened the package and saw how thin and not-too-tight they were I thought there was no way it’d help keep Everett’s socks on. But I tried them out anyway. Well, I tried one out on his foot that doesn’t have a cast, anyway.
And it worked! Everett immediately went to pull his sock off, pulled the toe of it, the sock wouldn’t come off. He pulled again a couple times and then gave up and went crawling looking for other trouble to get into!
I took that above picture for my blog and then he was being so cute I took some more photos. I was also trying out a Grovia diaper cover I’d purchased so most of those pictures focus on that. I have a lot of thoughts about Grovia right now but am not going to share them yet because I only have that one diaper and have only owned it for about 6 days so I don’t know enough about if I love it. So far I’m still really, really, really in love with my Rumparooz and Blueberry covers with Cloth-Eez prefolds and fitteds. This is the best diapering set up I’ve tried in the last 7 years I’ve tried out different cloth diaper brands! I’ve not lost the love and motivation to cloth diaper this go around because it’s easy to launder my diapers and they don’t retain odors (at ALL!) and they’re cute and they fit well. Love love love those brands I just mentioned.
I was hoping the Grovia cover would work with the prefolds and fitteds I own so I didn’t have to use the soaker pads from Grovia. But no such luck. No matter how I put on my prefolds or fitteds they were exposed in the thigh area. Any exposed cloth diaper means Everett’s clothes get wet with pee in those areas.
But how cute is this print?! I don’t mind having one cover/insert diaper in my collection when it’s this cute!
I had to add this photo from Amazon… the soaker pads have leg gussets!! The number 1 reason I dislike insert/soaker pad diapering systems is the soaker pads are usually completely flat and don’t curve around baby’s thigh so any poop (especially breastfed babies) can leak right out around the thighs and it’s up to the diaper cover to do all the work of catching it.
