Party Baby Fleece Soaker review

on November 18, 2012


Now, another wonderful item that’s been kindly donated to the nappy library has been undergoing extensive testing over the past few weeks.

The lovely Debbie at Party Baby has donated a fab fleece soaker to the library and, as this soaker is a little too small for my Monkey, I asked a friend of mine to have a go with it.

If you’ve not heard of fleece soakers, then you’re – quite frankly – missing a very major cloth nappying trick. Fleece is a miracle fabric that is one of the best things that you can invest in, in my humble opinion. Fleece works like magic, drawing moisture away from the baby and allowing the skin to breathe. It allows the moisture to wick through the fabric and evaporate away, which is rather brilliant.

So, if you don’t like PUL waterproof covers (especially at night) then fleece (or a wool cover) are a good idea to try. You can get soakers, which are like little shorts that cover the nappy, longies (trousers) or even fleece sleepsuits.

The gorgeous little soaker that Party Baby sent for the library has been a real hit. My friend used it on her little one overnight, over the top of a fitted nappy (she uses Little Lambs) and it’s been brilliant. There’s been no leaky patches, the fleece comes out of the washing machine almost dry and she’s very impressed with it.

The funny thing about fleece is that it’s one of those things that you really have to try for yourself, to see how great it is and how easily it works. Thank you, Debbie, so much for sending over the soaker from Party Baby. I know it’s going to be very popular in the library!

daisytheclothbummum was sent the soaker as a donation to our nappy library. I did not receive any payment and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
