CLOSED...Fluff and Stuff(ing)Giveaway: Zizzies and Izzies Fleece Soaker

Monday, November 15, 2010

zizzies and izzies logoI am kicking off Fluff and Stuff(ing) Week here at Marlie and Me with a roar! Grrr.
Our first sponsor is Zizzies and Izzies, makers of Eco clothes for Eco kids.

I learned about Zizzies and Izzies while looking for a solution to our bulky nighttime diapering system. I wanted a cover that was going to wick away moisture while allowing my baby's skin to breathe. I know wool is all the rage, but I am put off by the cost and maintenance. There is an alternative, my friends. It's called fleece...it's affordable and works!

I was fortunate enough to find Zizzies and Izzies fleece soakers on Esty. When I contacted Shelly, she was more than happy to work with me from helping with sizing to offering this giveaway. I received a large fleece soaker in the coral branches pattern (she also sent me a cloth wipe and an adorable barrette). I could not wait to put the fleece soaker on Marlie, so I washed and dried it the same day it arrived in the mail. I put it over her bamboo diaper that night. It fit her comfortably with room to grow. I have been using the Zizzies and Izzies fleece soaker for about a month and it looks the same as the day it came out of the package!

Zizzies and Izzies fleece soaker reviewHere's why I ordered more Zizzies and Izzies fleece soakers:


  • The workmanship is top-notch. These are made to last a long time. Shelly makes them by hand and even does custom orders.
  • They come in a variety of cute patterns. I ooed and awed over all the fun and unique designs for boys and girls.
  • They are daddy-approved. Damon loves that these covers pull up, no messing with snaps or applix.
Here is some additional information about Zizzies and Izzies:

Tell us a little about your Etsy Business...
I started my Etsy shop because I wanted a way to reach out with my cause and my line. I really love what I make, and I feel like others will too if they can just get it in their hands.

Why did you decide to start making fleece soakers?
When I decided to cloth diaper my second baby (I regretfully used all disposable on my first), I wanted to use a hybrid. I liked the idea behind them, but my baby's proportions just didn't fit. They leaked every time. I did a little research, discovered fleece soakers, and then went looking for some. There were so few choices and so few colors and prints! I thought to myself, "I can sew. I can make these." They worked great. My friends loved them, and my line started a few weeks later.

What are some of the best ways to use a fleece soaker?
There are a few. The most eco-friendly way to use them is over a cloth prefold. They are a moisture-wicking cover. The baby's clothes won't get wet unless he's been in the diaper a little too long, but the cover will feel slightly damp if he is pretty wet inside. I liked this property. It meant that moisture was being pulled away from his bum while being contained in the cover.

Another great way to use them is as an extra cover at night. Heavy wetters can use the layer of fleece to keep their bums and their jammies a little dryer, whether over a cloth or a disposable.

They are also adorable over disposables. As a decorative touch, I love them. In the summer time, Zizzie wears him as little shorts (they kind of look like boxer briefs -- way cuter than a baby in a disposable running around). He sleeps in them too on hot nights. And as he gets older, I have found they are great for keeping him from unfastening disposables.

Anything else you'd like us to know?
I am a stay at home mom. I make all of my products to be either reusable or out of recycled materials. Everything I sell, I made one for home use first. I stand by it all.

I like the Yellow Submarine soaker.

I'm not cloth diapering right now, but we've had a few heavy wetting nights. This would be great to use as a precaution! Plus, I know the pull my diaper off stage is coming soon. :)

My daughter is potty trained. However at night she wears pull ups. I'd love a solution to have something washable so i'm not buying pull ups? Any suggestions?

Krissy said...

I'm not trying to win any giveaways but I love seeing little marlie in her fleece! Super cute!. Jas has begun trying to pull the tabs on her diapers. I may have to look into these.
