Zookies One-Size Diaper Cover Review and Giveaway

This review is for the Aplix version of this cover only!

Fits –  As this cover is still being tested, a true range is not yet available. Zookies would say that it fits 10-30 pounds for sure, and maybe even a little smaller/bigger.

Price Per Cover: ★★★☆☆ This is a brand new product and was just listed for $16.75.  This is about average for most covers and with this cover, you have the added bonus of cuteness!!!  You can buy Zookies covers direct from their site here.  All covers are available in snaps or hook and loop.

Leaks:  ★★★★☆  I did encounter the occasional leak with this cover.  One time I noticed that the prefold had slid between my little one’s leg and the cover, which caused a leak.  And two other times she had a moist onsie and I could not tell where the leak came from.  All of these leaks happened during long naps or at night.  This cover is made of a cotton outer with PUL interior.

Fit:  ★★★★★  This cover fits very well.  The cover features stretchy elastic at the back waist and front waist as well as around the leg casings.  All of this stretchy elastic provides comfort for baby as well as a nice baby hugging fit.  Also, this cover features a three snap down rise setting to give four separate rise sizes to fit your baby through different ages and stages.  This cover has a wide aplix strip across the front of the diaper and features very sticky aplix tabs.  The aplix gives you the ability to get the perfect fit around the waist.

Ease of Use:  ★★★★★  This cover is very easy to use.  The aplix tabs are simple and very sticky and the cover is nice and stretchy to give you a nice and easy fit.

Washing:  ★★★★☆  This cover washes very well.  If your child has not soiled the cover, you can simply wipe it and use it again between washes.  The laundry tabs are a simple fold over and are very sticky to prevent the tabs coming undone in the wash.  Since the outer is a cotton fabric, the fabric does seem to show a little bit of wear.  However, to get the cute/pretty print covers, you have to go with a cotton fabric, so this is the trade off that you chose.

Overall Performance:  ★★★★☆  This cover fits wonderfully but I was disappointed by the occasional nap/night time leak.  This cover just did not seem to stand up as well as others to prolonged use.  It is still a very nice fitting cover and if my daughter was not a stomach sleeper, it probably would have performed well at night!

Total Stars: 25/30
