Have Mercy! Soaker Review & Giveaway

A few months ago, I had no idea what a soaker was. I would have guessed some sort of water gun...but never something that I would end up putting on my child.

According to eHow.com; "fleece diaper covers, also known as soakers, are a good way to keep a baby dry, especially at night. Because the fleece is waterproof, babies do not soak through to their clothes."

A friend of mine recently opened an etsy shop. One of the items she makes and sells is soakers.

Even though Athena wears a hybrid diaper, made by gDiapers, I still ordered her a Whooo's Adorable Fleece Soaker because I fell in love with the print. I figured I would work it into her wardrobe, one way or another, akin to the way us ladies buy shoes first....and the outfit later.

I created an etsy account - no longer an etsy virgin(!) and placed my order. Super easy to pay through paypal and I waited anxiously.

I received my soaker later that week and was impressed. The workmanship is detailed and spot on. The fabric was so soft my daughter kept reaching down to touch it.

We recently started using cloth inserts in the gPants, with a Have Mercy! soaker on top at night. We have not had any leaks.

Now that I am starting to peruse the stores for warm weather clothes, I find myself looking for dresses for Athena to wear over the soaker. Who says a girl can't wear her soaker during the day? On lazy days when we don't leave the house, it is perfect with a t-shirt. Even my oldest daughter wants a soaker!

I ordered two more and can't wait to see what fabrics she uses next!
