Zookies Giveaway! - CLOSED

 To celebrate the Under Cover Event
I am hosting a Zookies Cover Review and Giveaway!

Zookies so generously sent me a beautiful cover in the mail.  I have never had experience with anything but pocket cloth diapers.  I was so excited to try out a new way to use cloth!  When I received the package, the cover was so neatly tied in a beautiful ribbon.  I knew right away that they take a lot of pride in what they do.

Little Man loves playing with brand new diapers!

I had a hard time making up my mind when picking out our cover.  They have so many amazing prints.  Plus I couldn't decide if I wanted snaps or hook and loop.  Every other diaper that I have has snaps, so I decided to give hook and loop a try.  Personally, when I get another Zookies cover, it will be with snaps.  That is just my personal preference.  I am very happy that I chose the hook and loop though; it is nice to have some variety in my stash!

Even with the hook and loop, I love how easy it is to use!  I was really intimidated at first.  Besides trying to figure out what to use to stuff it, I did get it on the first try.  I really like the tabs for the hook and loop for when it's not in use.  They have held up well in the wash!  The outside is a very cute cotton print, and the inside is waterproof PUL.  The Zookies cover also fit very well on Little Man's chunky baby legs!

The Raconteur Daddy has even used the Zookies cover!  He says that he really likes them.  The hardest thing about using the Zookies cover, that we've found, is figuring out what we want to stuff it with today!  We've used microfiber inserts, hemp inserts, Gerber prefolds, and combinations of all.  The Zookies cover never once leaked!  We have both been very impressed.
It was very difficult getting Little Man in action...but he loves his Zookies!
I am so thankful that Zookies was so generous to send me a custom made cloth diaper cover.  I will talk more about my trials as a first time cover user in a later post.
