A personalized diaper cover is a way to nice way to dress up a pre-folded diaper for those special occasions. Plain soakers are fine for under pants or for a day spent lounging in the crib at home. But there’s nothing as precious as personalized ruffled diaper covers under a baby girl’s frilly dress. Satin ribbons and lace are a darling way to personalize a baby girl’s diaper cover; but what about something cute for baby boys?
I have a few ideas on how to customize or decorate these lifesavers that keep our baby’s outfits from being soaked from color to cute designs that are feminine, neutral or masculine. My feeling was that parents of baby boys might not want to dress their babies in what might be considered by some as sissy diaper covers that are covered in ruffles.
PERSONALIZED DIAPER COVER GIFT SETS Some online stores offer gift sets for girls that include a personalized diaper cover and a baby girl’s headband, hair bow or baby bib. For baby boys the set might contain a diaper cover in a masculine style with a matching bib in baby blue or other manly colors. I think it’s a great idea for upscale boutiques to include matching diaper covers with their stylish outfits that they offer for sale. Moms can always make their own or buy ready made in neutral fabrics, but for special occasions an exact match to the dress or suit would be better.
PERSONALIZED DIAPER COVERS FOR BABY BOYS The best ways to personalize diaper covers for baby boys would be monogramming or using a particular kind of fabric decorative stitching. Here are some ideas for personalizing diaper covers for boys:
You could sew pockets on the bottom of a blue denim soaker with stitching similar to daddy’s favorite pair of blue jeans
Hire a friend or local business to embroider your baby’s name or have his initials monogrammed in the center of the seat in a pretty color
Appliqué or embroider a crown on the seat that is embellished with faux gemstones or rhinestones. If you use beads or jewels, make sure they are properly attached. If they become loose they could present a choking hazard to your baby.
Embroider a funny saying on the seat
If daddy is a hunter or in Army, have a cover made of camouflage print
PERSONALIZED DIAPER COVER IDEAS for GIRLS When it comes to ideas for personalizing diaper covers for little girls, the sky is the limit. The rules that apply for baby boys are out the window. There are no restrictions, within the auspices of good taste of course, on what you can use to decorate the front, side or seat of soakers for girls. Princess crowns, bunny rabbits or flowers in clever combinations with illuminated letters of the alphabet in pink and white splendor are very popular as well as traditional diaper covers with rows of eyelet lace or gathered ruffles sewn across the seat. If you are a seamstress, this is an excellent opportunity to explore your creative side and make your own homemade, personalized ruffled diaper covers that will complement your baby girl’s best dresses and outfits.
A unique, personalized diaper cover is yet another fun way to make dressing our infants and toddlers fun. Anything that makes a wearing a diaper more comfortable, functions more efficiently than rubber diaper covers from the old days and is more attractive in the bargain will get my approval any day of the week.
