What are your favorite diaper/cover colors? Is there a color that speaks to you more than others?

One more question: what is your favorite gender neutral color?

The colors that speak to me are turquoise/robin's egg blue, periwinkle, and most greens. I wear these often myself, and love finding diapers for DS in these colors!

Orange - it's DD's favorite color, and she won't fight me if I'm putting an orange cover on her - LOL - opinionated little thing!

I personally prefer white because it doesn't show through her clothes. I'm so boring! : Plus I can use white with newbaby if it happens to be a boy.

I love anything purple or green. I was so uneducated about diapers with DS that I only had a couple cute things. Now with DD I have gone wild have a bunch of stuff ordered!

I like girly colors. I also love bright yellows, greens and blues. I don't have any pretty covers. I am too frugal to buy anything I couldn't use for a boy so right now I have just plain white ones.

I love my girlsMadaline(9), Mary-Grace(7), Georgia(3), & Evelyn(1)

I love blue, all shades but especially robin's egg blue, so it's a good thing I have a boy.

I like things with a lot of contrast. Even a simple wool cover can be colorful and attractive when it's serged with contrasting thread -- see what Tabitha at Toot Sweet does, for example. Coordinating is cute, but constrasting is da bomb!

I love the blues and periwinkles, too. All shades of blues, in fact. I was buying blue stuff before we knew we were having a boy, because I love blue so much that I would put it on a girl, too!

I feel ALL colors have their place. For my boy I use white serged in a brilliant color, (ie. white dipe with red or blue or whatever color that will stand out) unless I make a picture, then I either serge in white or a dominant color of the picture or the fabric color I'm using. I love shades of blue and green mostly. I do like Red or jewel tones or bright colors that are in a neutral design as well.

If I had a girl I'd do tones of green, coral, peaches, watermellon, berries (not pink pink or peptobismol pink) and PURPLES love purples.

I'm not big on yellow, but do think it has it's place if done right, and black is morbid unless it's brightened up with something happy. Neutral colors can be anything as long as it's done right iykwim. You can have a blue be neutral by making it a water or sky theme. but imo you can't make pink neutral LOL. Dark purple can be used for neutral if mixed with other colors like bright blues, reds, yellows, greens and oranges ect in a non-gender design.


OK, so I like too many colors, just bring them on

OH and the white ones, I have some white knit diapers that are super trim serged in red they look like whitie tighties and are so darn cute, so I agree, even white can be fun.

Ahhh tea the essence of life.

Why not white dipe with orange serging, that's gender neutral and still gives your dd a bit of what she likes too. (ohhhhhhhhh I see a white diaper with orange serging and an orange slice on the butt )

Ahhh tea the essence of life.

For diapers, I'm pretty much a print-fiend, and I strive for color balance in the stash as well as types of prints.

For covers, I especially like the kool aid dyed wool covers, especially oranges, greens, and blues. I love contrasting colors in a cover, like orange and green, or blue and white. I also go for unusual colors-- I love the Fuz egg warm grey color, which lots of people don't.

It's ok YOU can LOVE black, just for me to enjoy it, it'd have to have color to spruce it up (like say jewel tone or primary tones rainbow serging or a big yellow happy face on the butt lol), even black has it's place.

covers, one is my gold fuzeasy and the other is my Righteous Baby Skunk. I use them a lot! I also have an Elbee I love but it is out on repairs.

As for colors, my favourites are BLACK, brown, gold, tan, rust, orange, yellow, greens, blue, turquoise, olive, grey, periwinkle, charteus, lavender, purple, raspberry. We wear what we like in our family............LOL! To sum it up, we like all the colors of the RAINBOW!

I love white or natural with any colored surging. They always make me do a double take, which is why I was so sad I missed the SOS stocking this week.

I love blues and greens, but lately I've been drawn to all sorts of bright colors- yellow, orange, red, purples....I'm not much for pastels- the brighter the better

Half-marathon running Mommy to 3 spunky girls and 1 sweet boy. Spending my days and nights where my kids need me most- at home with them!!

I like colour but I like solid colours rather than prints. I like pastels and brights, for example I have four white Happy Heiny's, four lavender, two peach, two pink, one pink Hawaiin and three butterflys on white - I like the prints bt dont want anymore. For a girl, I probably dont like red, blue or green, but I'd love it if Happy Heiny's came in solid colours like hot pink, bright orange etc.

I couldnt not get my head around Eliza wearing say, a little gingham (do you guys call that plaid?) dress and having the pink Hawaiin HH underneath - that would drive me nuts.

I have lots of different colors around here.... yellows, gold, avocado, purples, raspberries, lavenders (note.. I have a boy, and he doesn't care what color I put on him... purple is perfectly nice on a boy!)

We have lots of prints (bumkins) that are bright, gender neutral yellows, greens, blues...

I love all colors! I know that If i'm having a girl that she'll have to have pretty, girlie things to even out all the gender neutral stuff we already have.

I don't like white. I'm bored by it (unless it's white with a print, like Bumpy).
