Hey guess what! I LOVE kissaluvs! *and a questions about washing*

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Out of complete desperation I decided to get in on the outlet's amazing deal and I ordered a dozen...praying that they may be the answer we needed over here. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my prefolds and they are constantly in rotation, but I NEEDED more fitteds. I have 8 that fit him right at the moment- and 6 more that "fit" but are on the last snaps and leave red marks. So I got size 1's. DS is a skinny little bugger with a 16 inch waist, 13 inch rise w/ no diaper and 10 inch thighs. I was afraid that they would be too low in the rise, but they aren't- they fit great and they are SO cute and squishy. Of course I tried it on before I washed it and I expect a bit of shrinkage, but I could cross over the tabs on those puppies! Dallin's not a heavy wetter and I change him a lot so absorbancy should be fine- and I can always add a doubler.

Anyway- anyone know- can he use them tomorrow if I've washed them on hot and dried them on hot twice??

They might not be to peak absorbancy yet, but you can definately use them for sure

I also LOVE Kissaluvs! They are absolutely the softest diapers we've tried. I love the soft waist and legs on them.

They will gain a bit more absorbency as you wash them, but you can definitely just wash them once and use them right away.

So did you get any of the cute colors?

No darn it- I just got natural w/ purple serging.

Yeah, the outlet sale is something, isn't it?! I bought our original stash at a similar sale last winter (Feb., I think?), and those diapers at that price have just spoiled me for everything else. I know there are "better" diapers, and I even have some I've found on the TP, but Kissaluv's work great for most of our everyday needs, and you can't beat the price. My seconds are holding up great after nearly a year of hard use, too.

I can't even figure out why they are seconds... :LOL I can't wait to use them tomorrow!! Well- for Dallin to use them, but you know what I mean!

I really like our kissaluvs and found they didn't shrink (I have some colors). I used them right after the first wash and now are broken in fine. They get used every day and she usually wears one at night with a doubler under a sp wool cover, sure its wet in the morning but so was everything else I was using plus all I had were leaks, they never leak, just suck up all the wet. For us they are a great diaper and her bum never gets red in them as it does sometimes in hemp.

I don't understand why some Moms find Kissaluvs to not be absorbent?

They are no less absorbent than any of my other diapers (although I do find my hemp diapers to be a bit more absorbent but we only use those at night).

Even when my DS was a heavy soaker they absorbed just as well as every other diaper we owned.

NAK!

just sold what I had of regular kissaluvs. I think the reason why I always thought they're not absorbent enough, is because when I would change ds the front of the diaper would be soaked. And even though it wouldn't go through the cover, it only took a bit of urine to soak the entire diaper and.. ds is a light wetter, LOL, but I guess I'm comparing them to pockets, the moisture is always away from his skin, so he's always dry, that's why I like pockets. I still have a couple contours, that I like a lot

Those are the cutest diapers! But DD has a huge diaper booty with them.

I really liked Kissaluvs when I had them, too, but DS is a big pee-er and drenched them (but they weren't anywhere close to new, either). Not exactly trim on him either. They're a great diaper, though, so stretchy and cozy.

I have been wanting to buy some of those for the new baby. Where did you get yours?
