Kissaluvs 0's are the most awsome newborn diaper. They didn't fit Baylee at 5lbs at birth, but by the time she reached 7lbs, they fit perfectly with a small cover and I ordered a dozen more. She wore them until about 13lbs. I'm pretty sure they woudl have fit longer, but she was ougrowing the absorbency and the rise. We had mostly all cottonfleece. Even though I sew, if we are blessed enough to have another baby, I'll definitly be ordering at least a dozen kissaluvs 0's
Kissaluvs size 1's starting fitting right around 10lbs and wored out pretty well until about 16-17lbs and crawling. The fit just was funky after that stage.. the rise seemed too low and we got lots of wing droop (BUT, my baby goes coverless most of the day at home.. with a cover we never had wing droop) So we began to change our stash over to other diapers. At 20lbs and 16 months, she still *can* wear the size 1's, but sadly the absorbency has to be beefed up with a doubler. For the price, I still think these are decent fitted diapers. Quality made.
Kissaluvs size 2's.. We use one of these in our stash right now and it's okay.... not our favorite, but we like it enough to keep it around
The absorbency is a bit on the weak side sincy my baby girl pees all up-front more like a boy would and most of the diapers absorbency in in the back. It's still very soft after using it for probably 6 months and the drying time is somewhere in the middle... I have diapers that take longer and I have diapers that take much less time.
I wanted to comment on the service I received with kissaluvs. Apparenlty I'd gotten a batch with bad elastic (too tight) and I didn't even realize it until at 14-15lbs (some of these I'd bought more than 7 months earlier and used for about three months), the diapers started not to fit anymore... they were just really tight around the legs. I emailed kissaluvs and asked if this was normal and gave them my baby's measurements. Very promptly, I got a reply saying they would send me out a new size 1 so I could see if it fit better. They didn't ask for the return of one of mine in order to send me that one, and they sent it very quickly. It did fit MUCH better, so I returned the 10 I had with tight elastic. Soon, I received 10 size 1's and a size 2 to grow on. I did pay the $12 shipping it took to get the diapers to kissaluvs, but in the end, I had an extra size one from the initial trial and an extra size 2 so that more than took care of my shipping costs (and I'd even put a not in saying they only needed to replace 9 since I'd already received one). Things like this can take a real financial and emotional toll on a wahm. I know there were many more customers that sent diapers back. But through it all, Diane was professional, friendly, and absolutly made me feel like my money was well spent buying kissaluvs. I look forward to buying kissaluvs when we have a new bum to diaper!
