Bambino Mio diapers and covers are part of our regular rotation, so I was really happy to hear about their new baby clothing line which is compatible with reusable diapers. Bambino Mio sent Mary Kate a clothing set in size 6 to 12 months to try out, and is offering a giveaway, too (details in a minute)! After you enter my Bambino Mio giveaway, “hop” around to the other blogs listed at the very bottom because they are giving away some great prizes too!
Bambino Mio’s clothing set includes a long-sleeved bodysuit, leggings and bandana-style bib. There are two sizes: 0-6 months and 6 to 12 months; the former also includes a little knotted infant cap. Right now, the only design available is a cute whale with balloons tied on his back, but I’m crossing my fingers that there’s more to come, because Bambino Mio never disappoints with prints.
The set retails for $39.99, but the items can also be purchased separately.
Have you ever had moisture wick out of a diaper’s leg gussets and onto your baby’s bodysuit? This often happens because the suit fits tightly and clings to the diaper. The bodysuit is the first place that the moisture seeks out.
Bambino Mio’s suit is designed with a roomier fit at the bottom that also allows for more airflow.
I really love the way the leggings fit. A typical pair of cloth diaper pants has a big stretchy bum and skinny little legs, which (to me) overemphasizes the big, padded bum. Bambino Mio’s harem pants have a more relaxed, comfortable fit that I think is darling.
Our clothing set seems to run true to size. Mary Kate is a petite one-year-old and the 6-12 month set fits her perfectly right now. The leggings measure about 16 inches from waistband to the leg cuffs (unrolled). The fact that the pant cuffs can be rolled up or down give a little more growing room.
That brings me to my first suggestion, and that would be to offer another size (or two). Extended options like 12-18 months or maybe even 18-24 months would be fantastic, as many little ones stay in cloth for at least that long.
Along with a lower price point (the leggings are $19.99 each), I would also suggest a little bit more length in the bib. After laundering it measures about 3.75 inches from neckline to the point. I suggest using the lowest setting in your dryer, or flat dry, to minimize this.
Bambino Mio has made a great start here, with a 100% cotton collection that’s cute, comfy and cloth-compatible.
I’m eagerly awaiting more additions to their line-up!
And now for the giveaway details!
