My Vote for Kiwi

Originally, I was going to write a review of this Wonder Wrap one-size cover I bought earlier this year. Second Daughter used it for a while and I recently tried it on Second Son. But since they've stopped making it, a review doesn't really seem worthwhile.

Second Son didn't mind chewing on his hands for a few minutes longer while I took a picture for you, though, so I thought I'd share it.

The company has recently changed their name and released a few new products like the GroVia one-size diaper. I haven't tried them out, but wanted to comment on the color. I chose this kiwi because I thought it would be acceptable for a boy (should Fourth Baby be revealed as Second Son, as he was), but as First Daughter was wearing it all summer, I realized what a fantastic color it was for girls. Nearly every time I put it on her, it matched perfectly the little vines or leaves or flowers on her dresses. I started reaching for it over and over again (even though she usually wore it at nap time, when no one was going to be admiring her perfectly matched dress and diaper cover).

I've read some comments from some people who didn't think it was a good color, so I just wanted to state my opinion for the record. Even though none of them will ever read this or care.

As long as we're talking about diaper cover colors (or at least, as long as I am), I'd like to come right out and say I dislike white for diaper covers. I think it starts looking dingy. It's probably a factor of our exceptionally hard water, but that doesn't change how I feel. I like to pick greens or blues instead. Or pink, but not so much for Second Son.

Now you know.


  1. Same boat as you, I love the colors and own very few whites. I am partial to greens as well, and the cover you have pictured looks similar to the "meadow" thirsties do or the "grasshopper" bumGenius. Very nice for a boy OR girl indeed!

  2. Monica, I also like a lot of the prints Thirsties offers. If I were ordering for Second Son now I'd get one of those, but they didn't seem as gender-neutral and I ordered before he was born.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
