I love fitted diapers. Well really, I love all cloth diapers (LOL), but fitteds have a special place in my stash for night time use. Grady’s now 22 months old and we’ve been using fitted diapers at night time since he was about 6 months old. All of a sudden pocket diapers just weren’t cutting it anymore. I tried adding extra inserts, but always wound up with gaps at the legs since it was so thick in the middle. Plus, it just looked really uncomfortable for him! So I got myself some fitteds for night time and haven’t looked back! I do occasionally switch it up though and will sometimes use 2 flats at night or a pocket stuffed with a microfiber and a hemp insert. Only when I’m feeling crazy though! If you need a little refresher (or have no idea what a fitted or a flat is) on the different types of cloth diapers I’m talking about, go here to read up on all the different styles available.

I came across Old School Cool Cloth Diapers on another blog’s giveaway back in December….and actually won! I rarely enter giveaways anymore, so I was really excited! Old School Cool specializes in fitted diapers, so I was also really excited to add another one to our night time rotation (you CAN use them during the day, too). Amanda, the woman behind Old School Cool is a WAHM, so each diaper is made completely by her. She also makes baby leg warmers, too! Since all diapers are handmade, you’ll sometimes need to wait for a stocking on Hyena Cart to snag one, or email her to request a custom. But guess what? Her next stocking is May 3rd! You’ll definitely want to check it out!

Guitar Print Cloth DiaperAmanda made me a custom diaper for my giveaway win! She sent me her fabric choices and I was able to pick what print I wanted and then she coordinated the inside and snaps of the diaper to match. It turned out awesome! I picked a guitar print and Grady absolutely loves it. It’s one of the diapers he picks out to wear all the time. I feel bad sometimes, because I make him choose again so I can save it for night time!

The outside of the diaper is a knit cotton (which has faded slightly), the inside of the diaper is a cotton velour (super soft), and sandwiched between the two, is some polyester fleece (which acts as a cover). The polyester fleece helps block any moisture from coming out onto the outside of the diaper, but you’ll want to use a cover if you’re using it over night. I found that for daytime use, 2 hours was the max I could leave him coverless before wetness started seeping through.

You can get this diaper in 2 sizes (a OS and a size 2). You can refer to her sizing chart here. Grady is about 24 pounds and 22 months old and he is still wearing the size 1 (currently called the OS), although he would probably fit in the size 2 at this point. Each size is adjustable with a fold over rise, so you’ll be able to customize the fit for your baby. There’s plenty of snaps to choose from and crossover snaps, too. Grady currently wears the diaper with the rise unfolded and he’s got a couple waist snaps left to use. The leg elastic and back elastic help to get a good fit so nothing escapes.

Fitted Cloth diaper from old school coolThere’s an extra flap a fabric on the inside of the diaper, and for the longest time I had no idea why it was there. I thought it was to hold down the inserts, but it’s actually there to protect your baby from the row of exposed snaps on the inside of the diaper. I guess I should have watched the instructional video on her site sooner. Whoops. It actually looks like she might have tweaked her design a little, as the flap I have on my diaper doesn’t quite cover the snaps and the one in her video does.

The inserts are made from organic bamboo fleece (OBV) and you get 2 with each diaper. One is super long and you can fold it up different ways depending on your little one and one is shorter to use for newborns or as a doubler. For night time use, I use both. It’s a little bulky, but all the fitteds we use are. The OBV is really absorbant and for the most part this diaper works great for night time use, but we have had a few leaks her and there. Nothing major, usually just a damp PJ top without the sheets even being wet.

  22. The guitar print is adorable. We have been wanting one for a while now. I have never tried these but I am definitely interested to see if they would work for us

  23. I love that the inserts are made from organic bamboo fleece. I love all our bamboo baby items. They are SO soft! I checked out her store, and I love the “Best of Friends” print. Thanks for the review!

  24. Danialle Meyers says:

    The prints are all so original! They look very well made, too. I wish I had some of these. They’re just as cute as GoodMamas!

  25. Jennifer Johansen says:

    We never were able to find a cloth diaper that didn’t leak during the night, so we’ve kept a pack of disposables just for nighttime since… I have no idea how long it’s been since we started doing that. I’d love to get rid of the disposables for good, though!

  26. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    These diapers are so cute! I really want to try them:)

  27. cool print! love the name old school! :)

  29. Nikole H. says:

    I really like that the inserts are made of organic bamboo fleece (OBV) – I’m a big fan of natural fibers, especially for night time.

  30. jennifer laur says:

    these diapers look so so so comfy! we love fitteds <3

  31. Nedra M says:

    I really want to try fitteds. I have only tried one “OsoCozy” and it’s ok, but even then I was still impressed with the concept. I’d love to try a WAHM/handmade fitted. These look awesome! And, I love the idea that she puts the flap in to cover the snaps on the inside.

  32. Rachel N says:

    I loved fitteds when my son was small. They are the perfect diaper for newborns in my opinion. Now that my son is 11 months old I don’t really use them anymore because there is no way he would stay still for me to put both a diaper and a cover on him.

  33. Nichole Gibson says:

    These look amazing. I love how soft they sound! Thanks for sharing!

  34. Talia R. says:

  43. Stacey T says:
