Like a cloud. Like the softest, most luxurious pillow, fit for a princess’s royal bed. As Agnes would say, “It’s so fluffy!”
When our Lilly&Frank one-size OBV fitted diaper arrived, the first thing I did was rub it on my face. Then I wondered if I could just use it as my own pillow instead of a diaper for my toddler. Organic bamboo velour is unbelievably soft. It’s also absorbent!
The Lilly&Frank OBV Fitted is constructed with organic bamboo velour … hence “OBV”: breathable, natural and incredibly absorbent.
The inner absorbent layer is a snap-in insert made of four layers of heavy organic bamboo fleece topped with velour. The insert folds in half at the snaps, giving you a total of eight absorbent layers. We also received a 2-ply, velour-topped booster.
Lilly&Frank’s OBV fitted fits approximately 10–35 lbs. Rather than rise snaps to accommodate smaller babies, the diaper has a fold-down rise. Basically, you fold down the top of the diaper to reveal another row of female snaps:
It also has cross-over snaps at the waist. Miss Cub is 24 lbs now at almost 2 years old, and she wears the rise unsnapped but the waist crossed over.
I almost never used fitted diapers on my son, even at bedtime. On Miss Cub, who is a significantly heavier wetter at nighttime than her big brother, fitteds are a great solution. With the booster, Miss Cub gets a leak-free, 12-hour night under a pair of woollies.
She still nurses overnight at least once and often downs her entire water bottle over the course of her night, so she has definitely put this diaper to the test!
My favourite things about our Lilly&Frank one-size OBV fitted:
- Did I mention yet how soft this thing is?
- Exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail
- Super-absorbent and suitable for heavy-wetters overnight (with booster)
- Makes for the cutest little fluffy bum
- Inserts can be folded to get the perfect amount of absorbency
- Because the insert is removable and only four layers thick when unfolded, the dry time is very reasonable
- Made with skill and love in Canada
What I like less:
This diaper with booster retails for $52, which is not an attainable price point for everyone. That said, it is a reflection of the quality and local manufacturing. The price is comparable to other overnight solutions I use, and well worth it.
Based in my birthplace of Surrey, BC, Lilly&Frank makes one-size and newborn fitted diapers, cloth wipes and nursing pads. Heather launched her business in 2013 with a focus on quality craftsmanship and local and ethical manufacturing.
