babylegs a good solution to stash in your diaper bag, glove box, or backpack. They cover chilled arms or legs in a pinch!
But when the frost really hits, you're going to need more solutions. If you have more than one child, generous friends, or you're a bargain shopper, you may have a whole tote of kids clothes hidden somewhere you need to dig out and put to good use for the fall. Whether you like your cloth diapers to be completely covered, like with Project Pomona pants, or playing peekaboo over simple fleece bottoms-- there's some great combinations for you, as close as your nearest mega-store. That's right, love 'em or hate 'em, I've found some great diaper fashion combos with a very popular kids' clothing brand from the store that rhymes with "fallbart". Easily accessible and inexpensive. The brand in particular is famous for mix and match--and no doubt you can do that with your cloth diapers, too!
I chose just a few - and they're all items that come in a cover so you can match all day long - although some come as pocket diapers, too. Who wants to match an outfit for only one change? Since these items easily mix and match with a variety of colors, even a bit of spit up isn't going to ruin your day. As a bonus, you may have some of these in your child's stash already! Check it out!
Softbums - This way-out gender neutral cover (or pocket) can be used along with several solid colors, as well as different printed styles! If adults can mix and match patterns, kids can too! Don't be afraid of color, but you can't go wrong for a girly girl with sparkles or ruffles- these come in multiple colors-I chose the solid black as the example. For boys, or girls like mine that are into blue and space, there are a variety of tops that would pair well with nebula. Fight aliens or have a space bounce--but don't let these awesome pairings pass you by! Shown with booty-covering Pomonas!
Rumparooz - going, going.. almost gone!- This print is retiring, but you can still snag it and do some last minute fall matching! These combos will work well into spring. Robots and mechanical themes abound, offering plenty of options in both prints and solids to give your little one a gear-rific day!
Rumparooz - Owls haven't completely gone away in fashion for little girls! Who wants a great match with some fleece pants--great for last minute cover-free options? They'll absorb enough moisture to let your little one's bum stay covered, but will eventually feel damp to the touch, letting you know it's time for a change! Don't forget something special for you! A jellystone teether will help you match your little one!
Best Bottoms has their fresh line-up for fall. There's something for boys and girls! Solid orange, pink, and camo prints, as well as pink/camo blends in jackets and extra long tees pair with leggings or cargo pants. Tell mom not to forget your Planet Wise Snack Bags before you 'hunt' for adventure!
I hope you find something you like, either to pair with a diaper you already have, or to find something new to add to your stash. Carry these through the fall and winter with pants outside the house, and when spring arrives, pull those babylegs back out to show off a diaper that's been in hibernation those long cold winter months!
