Prestons Pants

When I think custom diapers the one diaper that comes to mine is Preston Pants. Virtually any color combo you can dream up she can make. Minky, Cotton, Fleece, Pul, Wool, in a rainbow of colors in any snap color choice you can almost think up. It's a cloth diaper lovers dream. If you want something truly special you can add embroidery on the diaper as well. It's all just too much for me to take in, I can think up dozens of combos I would love to have.

Besides the amazing selection of custom options, Preston Pants are unique to all the other diapers we reviewed this week. I got the most gorgeous Halloween themed minky diaper. It has a black inner lining with a bright orange minky outer layer along with a set of black snaps. I couldn't have picked a better diaper myself as Connor looks beyond adorable in it with his pumpkin tee shirt I picked up for him this weekend. If I didn't know better you would swear it was a fitted diaper, minky on the inside, minky on the outside what you can't see is the PUL (waterproof layer) is sandwiched inside the diaper. This means you can have all the benefits of a fitted minky diaper but there is no need for a waterproof cover.

The diaper itself functions the same as any pocket diaper the only difference is having the soft layer both inside and out. This may make you wonder if the diaper may have leaking problems. We used the diaper daytime and nighttime with a variety of different inserts and had no issues. I did however wash the diaper three times before our first use just to make sure. I will have to note that a HUGE benefit to Minky is that it does not pill, at all. It stays soft and velvety no matter how many times you wash it. The funny thing is I catch Connor rubbing his butt when he is wearing his Preston Pants not that I blame him I have a hard time not rubbing them against my face when I'm stuffing them and putting them in his diaper drawer.

Hmm now the question is what would I order if I custom ordered my own Preston Pant.. maybe a purple and lime with a dragon or trinity knot. Or maybe a turquoise minky with a lavender lining and a lavender set of snaps? The choices are endless.

Pros :

  • Endless color and fabric selection. You choose your own colors and fabrics.
  • Waterproof layer is on the inside so both the inside and outside of the diaper can be any fabric you wish.
  • You choose your own snap colors!
  • Add embroidery if you wish.
Cons :
  • You may end up paying more for a custom diaper.
  • Custom diapers have a 3-5 week waiting time.
You can see more of the possible custom options and learn more about Preston Pants on their website as well as order your own diaper!
