I highlighted Melzy Baby a few weeks back as part of my Baby Bonanza Giveaway. Unfortunately I hadn't received it in time to do an actual review. Now I've got the Soaker Stopper in hand so here we go!!
If you have a baby, I'm sure you've had your share of leaks and blowouts and all that fun stuff. It's usually the product of a terribly made diaper, a diaper that doesn't fit your little one properly, or downright dirty luck. Melzy Baby came up with 2 really cool products to help parents in the fight against leaks and blowouts: the Blowout Blocker and the Soaker Stopper. I would have killed for a Blowout Blocker around months 2-4 when they were happening rather regularly, ughhhhh. But now at 9 months they are thankfully a rare occurrence (thanks to the introduction of solids!), so we went with the Soaker Stopper:
It's just one piece that wraps around and secures on itself and onto the diaper with velcro. You'd probably figure it out even without the instructions, but they're helpful anyway!
It is super soft and stretchy, so not uncomfortable in the least for baby! I also love the extra velcro strip that comes down and attaches to the diaper to keep it from riding up.
Unfortunately my son tends to hold his business overnight, so we weren't really able to give that aspect of it a proper testing. However I did do a little science experiment to test out it's liquid holding abilities and the "waterproof outer layer"... I placed the Soaker Stopper over a tissue and poured 1/2 a cup of water onto the Soaker Stopper. Waited a few minutes. Lifted it up and PRESTO - not a drop of water had gone through to the tissue! Seems to get the job done!!
