Best Coordinating Diaper for Sesame Street

I am a nut. Or at least, I’m a little bit obsessed with coordinating diapers with my kids’ outfits. Really, one of the most fun parts of using cloth diapers is coordinating diapers with cute little dresses and shirts. I do buy cloth diapers to coordinate with clothing and buy clothing to coordinate with outfits. Since Norton is all about Sesame Street, I’ve become pretty much a pro at what diapers look best with various Sesame Street characters.  Here’s my best coordinating diaper list:

Best Coordinating Diaper with Cookie Monster

Best Coordinating Diaper for Sesame Street (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Norton is modeling the Best Bottom diaper in Cookie Monster

Cookie Monster is just an amazing little monster. He’s a glutton. He’s a philosopher. And he’s got the single-minded determination of a toddler out to get a treat. He’s also a pretty nifty blue color.

Best Bottom in Cookie Monster. Best Bottom got it right when they named a blue diaper with brown trim Cookie Monster. It is the perfect shade of blue. I’ve actually rested the diaper against a Cookie Monster t-shirt and found that he was identical.  I don’t think you’ll get a better coordinating diaper than that!

Best Coordinating Diaper with Grover

Ah, Grover.  Or now, Super Grover, the hapless superhero who shows up.  He’s a lovely shade of dark blue.  He’s so awesome that he deserves a perfect match.

Knickernappies in Royal Blue.

This particular Knickernappies diaper has long been a favorite for certain outfits, but it’s amazing how well it goes with Grover.

Best Coordinating Diapers with Oscar the Grouch

Every neighborhood needs a grouch.  In most neighbhorhoods, it’s the old man that shakes his cane threateningly while yelling “You kids get off my lawn!”  In Sesame Street, it’s the cantankerous contradiction known as Oscar.  While he may delight in being unhelpful, smelly, and noisy, he will not tolerate anyone being less than kind to his pet worm Slimey.

BumGenius (or any other Cotton Babies product) in Ribbit.

I love my BumGenius 4.0 diapers, but I’m particularly fond of matching the BumGenius 4.0 diaper with Oscar the Grouch. It’s a fairly deep green that just goes so nicely with Oscar on shirts. I suspect that’s because Oscar on t-shirts doesn’t look as dirty as he does on television.

Best Coordinating Diaper for Sesame Street (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Thirsties Duo Cloth Diaper in Meadow

The first Thirsties Duo cloth diaper I that I’d ever purchased was in Meadow.  I started kicking myself for parting with it (because I’d made the mistake of buying it in a Velcro closure) instead of converting it to snaps.  It’s such a wonderfully coordinating diaper!

Best Coordinating Diapers with Elmo

Ah, Elmo.  The furry little red monster that dominates Norton’s room.  He’s got that big round orange nose that clashes so hard with his fur, but whatever.  Kids love the eternal toddler who speaks in third person.

GlowBug Orange Spectrum

GlowBug is known for selling lovely patterned packs of cloth diapers. While their patterned diapers are in gender specific packs, their Spectrum package is in gender neutral solids. It just so happens that the orange diaper perfectly coordinates with Elmo’s nose.

Thirsties Duo Cloth Diaper in Mango

When I saw the Thirsties Duo in Mango online, I thought it was a nice, dusky orange.  However, it turns out that the pictures online do not do this diaper justice!  It’s more of an orange sherbet color… and is actually the color of Elmo’s nose.

Orange Pumkin Baby Kangas

Baby Kangas in Orange Pumpkin

Sometimes I’m amazed at how different the stock colors are versus the actual color.  I thought that the pumpkin was a sort of garish orange that I would never own since I’m not a fan of orange to begin with.  But it’s much nicer in person.
