My Lighthouse Diaper review from April introduced a new, mother-designed bamboo all-in-one, available in 3 whimsical, beach-inspired prints. Vanessa’s product launch has been so successful that some of the three original prints are already sold out! In May, 6 bright colors with coordinating snaps were released (below). Vanessa sent Mary Kate a complimentary “Surf” diaper to try out, and very generously offered to sponsor a “Seaweed” giveaway for my readers (details below)
Vanessa also made a minor update to the design by adding 1 more row of rise snaps. As note in my prior review, the first Lighthouse Diapers produced only had 2 columns of snaps across the rise (horizontally), which caused the front to bulge out sometimes when fastened on the smallest setting for young infants. The extra row that has now been added to the middle eliminates the puckering issue completely for us.
Some highlights of the Lighthouse diaper from my previous review:
- Only needs 1 wash before use
- Bamboo insert is adjustable and can be used with bamboo or fleece side up
- Dries more quickly than many other AIO diapers
- Lined inside with breathable, easy care Athletic Wicking Jersey
- Includes an extra bamboo insert (size small)
Mary Kate was 3 months when she first tried the Lighthouse AIO; now’s she’s 5 months. If I want the diaper to fit right at her belly button, I will snap the rise completely up (left). But she also wears it comfortably snapped up once (bottom right).
If you missed my complete Lighthouse diaper review, check that out here. Since Mary Kate has been wearing her Lighthouse diaper for a few months, I’ve discovered a handy trick which works great for babies that wet more in the back. Take the small bamboo insert which is included with your diaper and lay it at the back of the diaper to boost the absorbency (I fold the edges under to fit).
The Lighthouse AIO gets high marks for versatility, softness and a trim fit. I’m definitely looking forward to future color and print releases!
